Tiger Haul

I love Tiger, I always seem to exit that store with something.  It can't be helped... honest!



Tiger is one of my favourite places for little cute nick-nacks or inspirations to get creative... You can buy items such as yarns, crouchet hooks, glue guns, glitter, paint and art canvases.  Also home goods like mixing bowls, spoons, umbrellas for your cocktails, spices for cooking, candles...oven gloves!

Trust me when I say... if you enter a Tiger store - I very much doubt you will leave empty handed.

So what did I buy on my recent trip?

Oven gloves.  A self explanatory item which I don't think you need me to go into much detail about. But I will say they were very cute and the colour caught my beady eye. Expensive? Nope £3.99...oh yay... You know I love a bargain.

Next...

A knitted owl Iphone cover.  This little creature needed a new home I mean look at him???  He will be giving my new camera some loving.  Annoyingly some new cameras don't come with cases and I refuse to pay mega bucks, so this cutie will do just fine.  £3.99 again and he will do just nicely keeping clean, protecting my camera from dents and sctaches.  

And finally hanging storage for my bathroom.  I have been looking for something like this for years and finally I find what I need.  It pays to hold out for the perfect item. We have limited storage in our shower area so this will be a life saver.  Again not expensive... £3.99. I know it my sound sad but I cannot wait to hang this up!!! The basket can store shampoos etc and we can hang our sponges on the hooks.  I'm so excited.  Yes yes - sad I know.

So does Tiger sound up your street? Find your nearest Tiger store right here!!!!

Spring cleaning on Jolly.Beach.Ang


Once upon a time there used to a girl and as time passed by that girl grew into a woman.  That woman is moi!

When I started this blog way back in 2010 (yes we are that old) I was this obsessed with beauty products kind of girl.  I still am a little, but like a flower I have grown and changed over time and things are a little different.  I have new interests.

Jollybeachang required an overhaul.  For a while in my AWOL period I debated with myself whether to scrap this site and start a new.  A clean slate.  But instead of that, the plan is evolve, develop and branch out instead if walking away.  

So here's the deal, you'll notice new tabs on my new layout.  You like???  They show fitness, beauty, fashion, decor, food and life.  These are my interests and I want you guys to be a part of that. Hence why I am staying put here and not starting a new.

I will still blog about beauty so don't worry, but I will also blog about the other things I love.  The tab names are a indicator to my interests.  

I will also develop my YouTube in the same manner.  (Yes I make videos... Did you not know that???  Link here).  There are only so many beauty videos a girl can make you know and again I want to branch out.

So that is all everyone.  Let me know your thoughts.  Is there anything you'd like to see on this blog?  Do you like the new layout and style.  Feel free to tell me :-)

Have a good day guys!!

Reorganising | Kitchen Drawers

Clutter drives me a bit potty, when I see it around the house it just makes me turn green and steam will start coming out of my ears.

When we were finally allowed to move our things back in to our kitchen there was one draw which became the utensil dumping ground.

See...


This weekend I popped out to TK Maxx and Home Sense as I knew they would hold the key for a happier and less messy kitchen draw.

Say hello to the saviours.   


These inexpensive clear plastic containers were exactly what I was looking for.  They have little rubber feet to stop them moving around when you open and close the draw.

They are easy to clean which is great, plus they had a few different sizes so I could mix and match to get the desired organisation I wanted.  It couldn't of gone any better, it's exactly how I envisioned it.

Clutter free!


I totally recommend TK Maxx and Home Sense if you are looking for unique storage ideas. They are my two favourite stores. This all in all cost just under £11 to make this draw less stressful and more useful. You can also use these containers in numerous other ways. Perhaps to organise your makeup collection?

These are by a company called Inter Design and you can find these on Amazon right here.

Do you have any organising tips and tricks?
