It has been a gorgeous day today, a bad day to be stuck outside in jeans! (note to self: dig out the summer dresses and skirts NOW). Had a lovely BBQ with the family and got some more brilliant ideas on what I can contribute to the blog over the next few months, my mum's special secret recipe for low fat potato salad being one!
I have been reading what the web has to offer this evening and according to the DIY Juggernaut B&Q, Easter is the time for home improvement. Here at Curious HQ we are already eyeing up the boy's old black wooden furniture and picturing cream paint and Cath Kidston decoupage prints!
Apparently many Britons improve their homes with simple light changes, with over 900,000 lightblubs sold over the season!

As a B&Q spokesperson said "The Easter Break affords a long weekend opportunity to crack the first DIY projects of the year and the the country is a hive of innovation with new ideas springing into people's homes".

I definitely agree that Easter is a time for change in the home, whether it be organising that stack of books that have been laying in the corner since Christmas, having a complete spring clean or actually getting dirty with some paint.
So I hope you too will grab your paintbrushes, arm yourself with feather dusters and do something to improve your own wonderland this festive season. Look out tomorrow for some homemade body/face scrub recipes, who says your home is the only thing that has to be beautiful!
