Brit Decor: Gets creative with Cheerz!

Working at a computer has its perks but I begin to feel a little too far removed from my creative roots if I'm not using my hands to make something on a regular basis. Does this happen to you too?

However, when the design projects are stacked up and blog posts are pending - sometimes there just isn't enough time in the day to 'make'. This is why I jumped at the chance for a creative collaboration with the folks at, because not only can I use their handy App to quickly upload a selection of my favourite photos, but with their super cute La Boite à Photos, I had a ready-made activity box delivered directly to my home - Fact!

Inside my box of creative goodies, alongside 40 of my chosen photos, there was a selection of 'crafty' essentials such as Washi tape, mini-pegs, and decorative string - perfect for having fun and getting creative, minus the sourcing around for materials and equipment.

This box offered a fun-fuelled interlude from my gruelling work routine and allowed me to kick-start those creative juices. Not being one to keep things all to myself, I want to spread the creative love by offering all Brit Decor readers a whopping £4 off your first order when you spend £8 or more with Cheerz - simply use the code BRITSR 

Please take a moment to check out the many more fun & creative products available at

Brit Decor: On Air/ Top indoor garden ideas with Airplants

Air plants have always been a bit of mystery to me. I recall my Gran being given one as a gift many years ago and as a child, I just couldn't grasp how a plant could live without any soil or substance, so I ended up dismissing it as 'faux foliage'. Little did I know!

Incredibly in-expensive to buy and relatively easy to maintain, these architectural beauties are perfect for indoor gardening. With the recent upsurge in air plant sales, there's been the inevitable explosion of creative ways to display these little gems, including some eye-catching DIY projects  - Amen for inspiration.

As you can see from the photo I took 'above' and my terrarium in the third image 'below' - I'm now in on the air plant action too. However, I am feeling the need to break-out a little more creatively and explore other ways to display my plants, so here's some of my top picks for today's air plant extravaganza!

Do you have an Air Plant? How do you look after yours?
