Start Colouring in or Painting

If you're a fan of pretty floral prints, we have a feeling you'll also enjoy the pleasures of playing with colour to create a beautiful picture or panting. Adult colouring in books and colour by number paintings have become hugely popular because of the endless hours you can spend keeping your mind flowing in a calming and relaxing way. You'd be surprised just how quickly you can get lost in this! You'll find a world of options at your local craft store or online, however, if you want to get started with our favourite Review floral prints, you can download and print them below.

Create a Vision Board

If you're a lady who is a bit of a planner and loves goal setting, this is going to elevate your goals and intentions to a whole new level! Creating a vision board is all about visually laying out all the things you want and desire onto a pretty collage. All you need here is a printer, pin board and your hopes and dreams in mind to source a range of beautiful images. This is going to get your motivation flowing and you're going to feel inspired to reach those goals every time you look at the board. You may even want to include some style muses to help you define your own personal style too!

Grow Your Own Herb Garden

Grow Your Own Herb Garden

Wouldn't it be a dream to have your own herbs available to pick when you're cooking dinner? We love the combination of functionality and beauty this provides by being able to eat your freshly grown herbs, but also having the lovely addition to your home or backyard. If you have a favourite few herbs your regularly use in your cooking, save yourself having to repeatedly purchase them and grow them easily at home! You can head down to your local nursery and purchase the seeds, soil and pretty little pots to get started. You'll love watching the sprouts come to life but eating your fresh produce even more! We have some adorable inspiration of how cute these can look in you home below too. Be sure to follow the instructions on the seeds packets to see ultimate results!
