If you’re a bit addicted to home reno and makeover shows like I am, you’d have watched the stack of UK series’ they play on Foxtel. Grand Designs, Property Ladder, Double Your Home and Location, Location, Location (just to name a few, of course).

The one thing I notice the homes have in these shows time and time again is the wall-mounted heating systems in living areas and heated towel rails in bathrooms. And I always wondered why we didn’t have these in Australia. Turns out, thanks to Bosch, we do.

Having moved to Melbourne a few months ago, it’s pretty safe to say that The Life Creative is here to stay. It’s been an undeniably cold winter down here and it still hasn’t scared me away; I’m pretty sure this means my love affair with Melbs is a long-term thing.

Granted, I never normally find myself getting giddy over gadgets, but when I found out there are sexy power points containing USB ports - so you can transform pockets of your home into little recharge centres - my interior antennas went off and I couldn't help but spread the word!

The IKEA pledge to Make Time for LivingIt’s no secret that I would move into an IKEA showroom given half the chance; my love for IKEA is that strong. What has made me even more smitten with the place is their recent mission to encourage us all to make time for living. You know, put the phone down, step away from the email and let something magical happen. Are you up for the challenge?
