Star Wars Bedding from Character World – Review

We are all fans of Star Wars in the soup dragon house, and quite honestly I don’t know many people who aren’t, maybe those that don’t have boys in the family? So most of you will know that May 4th seems to have been renamed as Star Wars Day.

The boy was excited to be updating his duvet cover for a new Star Wars The Force Awakens set from Character Bedding in time to celebrate “May The Fourth”. Character world produce a great fun range of bedding and accessories licenced by Star Wars and Disney and sent us a single duvet cover and a reversible cushion to brighten the boys room.

The Star Wars duvet cover is made from a polyester cotton mix and is reversible with movie scenes on one side and a red and white repeating graphic on the other. It is a nice heavy fabric which I know will wash and iron well. There is a great range of bedroom accessories available from Argos, ToysRus or online retailers like Amazon. You can even get a double sized cover for those grown up fans who have a bigger bed!

The boy thinks his new duvet cover is pretty cool, and I have to agree its a nice inexpensive way to update his room. The boy loves cushions so the new Star Wars cushion has already taken pride of place next to his force awakens PJ’s.

Painting rooms

Is it ok to paint a room the same colour as a cereal packet?

Strange question I know, but one I found myself thinking about. Now if I go back to the beginning…
A year ago I was lucky enough to win a competition with Dorset Cereal. It was one of the first ones that I won on Facebook, and is still one of my favorites. You had to suggest a new flavour for granola and mine was Elderflower and Blackcurrant.
I was really quite shocked when they invited me to their Dorset HQ, and was given a lovely hamper. For six months of last year my cereal was on sale in Waitrose, Tescos and Sainsbury.

Fast forward…my husband jokingly suggested that we paint the dining room the colour of the packet, I wasn’t convinced but did like the idea. Last week, I had a day off and thought it would be good to decorate the small bedroom. Now the colour would really suit a spare room. So off to the Dulux decorating centre, I thought I might get a strange look when I pulled out the packet of cereal and asked them to match it! But it turns out that they have seen everything from flakes of paint, a coat with the person inside and even a front door!

I am very pleased with the result, The colour is a great match and with some Next sale curtains and a lamp to finish it off, I feel very at home in my new office!
