There are 101 (possibly more) stresses bound to modern life, so much so that we often don’t even notice the stress we carry around with us every day. From work, home, money and everything in between, it’s easy to find your shoulders hunching closer and closer to your ears, and a lot harder to bring them down again. Since we don’t always physically see the negative effects of stress, we often overlook how detrimental it is to our health. But here at Ashleigh & Burwood we reckon it’s time to make a few changes. It’s time to squeeze in some much needed ‘me time’ (and refuse to feel guilty about it). You can take 10 minutes, you can take whatever time you have, but even the shortest of weekly pampering sessions has got to do us some good, hasn’t it?
Don’t leave your home fragrance in the house, it makes a great car companion!
Some car air fresheners lose their scent after a matter of weeks, offering a quick burst of fragrance on the day of purchase before rapidly fading to nothing. It’s time to get scent savvy. Your car picks up bad odours just as easily as the home – muddy shoes, mucky dogs and murky weather all see to that!
You’ll always find me in the kitchen at parties. Mostly because that’s where they’re usually held. Gone are the days when kitchens were used exclusively for cooking, their function purely practical, oh no, we’re now living in the dawn of the trophy kitchen.
This doesn’t mean that we’re no longer using kitchens in the practical sense; it means that the kitchens practicality has expanded. The kitchen is often combined with the living room or dining room (or both), forming an open ‘living space’ rather than just ‘the kitchen’. This living space often acts as the heart and soul of the house, the go-to room where family and guests alike naturally gather.
