Here’s a sneak peek of my dining room taken a few weeks ago when it was still unfinished, but looking ok. Well today is the day that the floor finally goes down, and I’m so excited! I can’t wait to put it all together properly; we’ve a cute new loveseat sofa in here too. So more shots to come very soon. And a full reveal on the blog too, I promise.

Do you invest in bespoke furniture? I think we often perceive it as too costly but in actual fact, if you find the right company or tradespeople, it’s well worth the investment. I wrote a whole post about this on the blog recently, and I’ve been thinking more and more about it, particularly as I’m having a fair bit of work done in the house right now. Part of me wishes I’d had more bespoke pieces made in the past, but I think I just didn’t have the right mindset. IKEA is fabulous, and I have plenty of it, but sometimes it’s good to mix it up and buy into bespoke, unique pieces made just for you. What do you think?

Happy Friday! Looking forward to the weekend as it’s been a long week, but a highlight had to be my trip to meet @darlingsofchelsea at their Birmingham store to check out their sofas AND talk all things Pinterest. Not only do they have gorgeous sofas (how lush is this leather corner sofa) but they are the perfect client when it comes to Pinterest strategy. This is the part of my work that I love the most! What’s the best bit about yours?

I’m renovating my kitchen currently and yesterday installed some new worktops. Thought I’d share some progress photos as a way of showing that it’s not all pretty pretty over here at Love Chic Living!
Kitchen doors are off being sprayed black. The new white worktop has come from Maxtop Quartz and looks amazing so far. A little way to go yet!

Triple Your Traffic Challenge Day 5!
The next step -->> https://jenstanbrook.com/pinsight
Welcome to Day 5 of my Master the Triple your Traffic Pinterest plan!
You can still get the full training HERE >> https://jenstanbrook.com/triple-your-traffic-pinning-plan
Today is all about building a proper pinning plan. You’ve learned how to identify Pinterest friendly content, make beautiful pins, write amazing descriptions, and build exactly the right boards for your profile. Now, let’s talk about a pinning plan.
1. You need to be pinning regularly and consistently for Pinterest to like what you’re doing.
2. You must add a mix of both your pins and pins/repins from other people. The ratio varies but start with 20% yours and 80% other.
3. Pins need to be topical, so take note of what’s trending and pin more of that. The more Pinterest likes your pins, the more it’s going to show them in the feed to others.
For today’s task, I would like you to create your pinning plan or strategy.
Fill in the blanks in this statement:
Each day I’m going to make [state the number] of pins, add them to Pinterest via [state manual pinning or scheduler]. I’ll also add [state the number] of repins or saves from other pinners, totalling around [state total number] of pins to my profile every day. I’ll review my Pinterest boards every [add number] of days/months (delete as appropriate) and am thrilled I now have a proper pinning plan to triple my traffic from Pinterest.
Make sure to comment below and let us know that you did it! Just comment on this post with "I just created my Triple your Traffic Pinterest Plan!”
Or any declaration of success you choose; I just want to hear about your success ;)
