If you fancy clearing out your room – NOW is the perfect time to do it.

Just as the Christmas lights are coming down, grab some fairy lights from your mammy or granny, because drowning your bedroom in those little sparkling things is totally in.

Just like a Pinterest pinboard, you can tack fairy lights to your headboard, ceiling, bedframe or doorframe:

Or, you could just throw them in a bunch somewhere like these people are doing it:

Where are your Christmas lights right now? If you're like the rest of us, they're probably in a tangled ball of horror somewhere in your attic.

While most of us run screaming at the thought of being presented with a mound of tangled cables – especially if there's a broken bulb in there – some people actually get enjoyment out of solving those kinds of problems.

If you (God forbid) actually find untangling lights rewarding and simple, then Tesco wants to hear from you.

For the first time ever, the retail giant is looking for a full-time "Christmas Light Untangler" to work out of its Wrexham store in the four weeks leading up to Christmas.

Yes, this is a legit job application, and yes it's paid. Tesco promises a "competitive salary" for the lucky candidate.

Throughout December, customers will be able to bring their lights along to the store for a free untangling service, plus replacement of any broken bulbs.

So what will the successful candidate be like?

Well, aside from having a "passion" for all things festive (obvz), you'll need the ability to "untangle three metres of Christmas lights in under three minutes."

If anyone's looking to test their skills, we can point you in the direction of some very tangled lights. Fancy putting up our tree too?



January is a time for renewal and refreshing your surroundings. However, that is not always as simple as it sounds – especially when you're broke!

Here are some simple ways you can upgrade your bedroom without breaking the bank:

Fairy lights
Not just for Christmas, fairy lights can add a really cosy and ethereal feeling to your surroundings – transforming a space. They are so widely available and in so many different styles that you don’t need to spend lots of money!

Buying some new throw pillows for your bed can really make your room feel made over. Go for different colours and patterns for a kitsch feel.

Put your favourite quotations above your bed or mirror to make your room trendy and on point. And most importantly, cute.

Lamp shade
While your bed is generally the centre of attention in a bedroom, the lamp shade is also important. There are amazing choices out there for unique and different lamp shades, from star-shaped to jam-jar chandeliers. 

Create your very own haven with a draped canopy over your bed. Using some light fabric simply secure the fabric to certain areas of the ceiling to get your desired effect. Make sure it is secured properly so it doesn't fall down in the middle of the night!

Fairy lights can create a cosy and romantic atmosphere in a room –  perfect for movie nights and cuddle nights.

Fairy lights can also be a good alternative to lamps in rooms as they are more versatile and can be hung from mantelpieces, beds, ceilings, wherever you like!

Here are some ideas on how you can use fairy lights in the different rooms of your home to add an instant cosy touch.
