HIBS100 Home and Interiors Edit


Thanks to all of you who’ve already linked up this month, we’ve been browsing all your lovely ideas and getting lots of brilliant inspiration.

Today’s post is all about the home and interiors side of things. I’m sorely in need of a magic wand myself at the moment, to wave over my own sitting room. I can’t quite put my finger on the problem, but it’s looking tired. Nothing that couldn’t be sorted by lashing out ££££ on a new sofa and curtains, no doubt, but are there any less pricey ways of injecting a bit of new life? It turns out there are – I was really glad to see the post on 5 easy ways to transform your living room from Ruth at Craft with Cartwright:

I’m definitely going to try suggestion number 5, move your furniture around. Not only is it free, but it’ll give me a bit of exercise too. Result.

Next to catch my eye was a post from Anne Marie of Very Me Interiors who’s just taken a radical step with her patio. After an accident with a paint pot showed her just how well paint sticks to patio slabs (!) she decided to take the plunge and revamp the lot on purpose – adding a sprinkle of ordinary craft glitter to the mix. The result is this stylish and rather sophisticated look:

Wow! Looks fabulous and the glitter should catch the summer sun nicely. What a great outdoor family space.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
