    Indoor plants: are they really worth the hype?

    I find myself scrolling through drool worthy interiors on my Instagram feed daily. Wanting to make that greenhouse bedroom makeover happen, but not quite finding time to do so. Until now!

    I have always wanted that greenhouse vibe in my house, yet it hasn’t been until recently that I have been paying close attention to how much of a positive effect plants and eco friendly interiors can have on not only humans, but those little fury friends of ours too!

    So why should you have real plants in your house (not just fake)

    Breathe & Clean

    When we inhale, we bring oxygen into our bodies. When we exhale, we release carbon dioxide. Plants, in fact do the opposite. During photosynthesis, plants absorb our carbon dioxide and release oxygen, making humans and plants a match made in heaven.

     

    By increasing oxygen levels, and keeping the oxygen flowing 24/7, plants not only help us breathe easier, they help freshen up the air, and eliminate harmful toxins.

    Focus & Energy

    Who would have thought that having a bit of greenery could help you think clearer? Being around plants has been shown to help increase memory retention and concentration (1)

     

    Spending more time immersed in nature gives you a sense of vitality and gives you a good dose of serotonin, so why not bring that nature inside?

    Reduce Stress

    Have you ever wondered why people love gardening? It may be the fact that they are outside in nature, or it might simply be the element of nurturing nature. Nurturing plants has been shown to reduce stress levels and gives people a way to cope with their negative feelings (2)

    A beginners guide to going green

    I wanted to take my bedroom from a place of just sleep, to a bit of a haven, where I feel relaxed and at ease. To tie in nicely with my green foliage, I have opted to go down the linen side of things with my bedding. These Sheridan pieces are made from 100% Belgian linen fibers that have been dyed in natural piece muted tones. I was a little hesitant to go down the linen option, even when unpacked the sheets I was worried that the linen was going to be harsh on my skin. Sure enough, after a wash and a few good nights sleep the linen has softened quite nicely

    Any tips on now trying to keep my plants alive?!

    #LGHomeCinema

    Well Winter has well and truly hit Australia. I don’t know about you guys, but for me, Winter is all about snuggling up in front of that heater, having friends over and just simply, relaxing. If you have been following me on social media you may have seen that I have partnered up with LG to showcase the very best of their Home Cinema entertainment setup. The #LGHomeCinema.

    Earlier this month I was given the opportunity to see how impressive the home set up can be at LG’s very own pop-up home cinema, right in the middle of Sydney’s CBD (I must admit, even though I have had my OLED TV for a month now, I have NOT been using it to its fullest potential). The team at LG helped explain Active HDR and Dolby Vision, and we also got a bit of a sneak peak of some new and exciting Netflix shows!

    My kinda night in

    Netflix x LG x Pizza = Happiness

    We’ve all heard the colloquial saying “Netflix & Chill” that has circulated social media and media channels alike. For me, I hadn’t jumped on the Netflix bandwagon, until now. If you’ve been following me on social media, you may already know that I have partnered up with LG to showcase their OLED TV and Soundbar and just how special it makes my home entertainment set up. LG has teamed up with Netflix to give away a bonus 3 month Netflix Premium subscription for customers who buy either an LG OLED TV or LG SUPER UHD TV between 17 April and 16 July 2017. And it’s so easy, with just a click of the Netflix button on the Magic Remote, I have now got my hands on Premium access to some of the best shows going around (hello TV binge time!)

    Netflix LG

    If you have been living under a rock for the past few years, Netflix is the World’s leading internet television network offering award winning TV shows, movies and documentaries. With Winter setting in early this year here in Australia, I couldn’t think of any better way to spend my Friday nights in.

    Current favs:

    The Blacklist

    Code Black

    Designated Survivor

    Shooter

    Taken

    The Americans
