The Best Things About Having Your Own Place

Well, I say having my own place but I actually rent a flat and share it with my boyf but, you get the drift, right? I first moved out of my parents house when I went to uni around 4 and a half years ago (wow, I feel old.) But, as a student, I never really saw halls or shared houses as a 'home' and ended up going back and forth between my uni accomodation and parents home way more than I thought I would! But living with Josh is different. I love our little flat and how it feels so homely, now, and I couldn't quite imagine not having our own place anymore. Here's my favourite things about having my own home (even if it is a rented one since getting a mortgage is virtually impossible these days - sigh)...

Dressing Table Details

Ikea Malm Dressing Table
When I first moved into my flat, almost two years ago now (wow, that has flown!), one of the first pieces of furniture I looked for was a dressing table. I remember when I was deciding which dresser to buy and how to style it, I spent hours browsing Pinterest, Instagram and other peoples blogs for inspiration so I thought I'd share with you some of the details of my dressing table, now I'm finally kinda happy with it...

Antipodes Vanilla Pod Day Cream & Avocado Pear Night Cream Review

When it comes to skincare, Antipodes is definitely one of my favourite brands. If I'm being completely honest, I'd never tried anything by them until last year when I was sent some products to try but, since then, I've fallen in love. I have quite sensitive skin and I break out easily so when I find a brand I like and my skin gets on with - I tend to stick to it. I was sent a day cream and night cream to try a few weeks ago so thought I'd share with you how I'm getting along with them!

H&M Home Wishlist

Hello! Happy hump day and all that. I said in a post last week (Where do I want my blog to go?) that I definitely want to focus on homeware a lot more on here so, here I am, with a H&M home wishlist! H&M is one of my favourite places to shop for homeware. My only grumble is that there isn't one anywhere near me so I can only do it online which means I end up returning about half of the things I buy, sigh. But, they still have some great pieces at really affordable prices. Here's a few things I've got my eye on at the moment...

The Little Things

Hello, Monday. I know it tends to be the most hated day of the week for many but, to be honest, mines not too bad this week as I have a lie in and a short shift at work ahead of me. (Sorry for my smugness.) Anyway, I woke up feeling quite content this morning, with the sun shining through the window, and I was having a little ponder about how it tends to be the little things that can quite easily turn your mood from crappy to happy. So, obviously, I thought I'd write a lil list of all those little things that can be serious mood changers...

Valentines Day With Homesense

My boyfriend and I have never really been ones to go all out on Valentines Day - infact, if it wasn't so in your face absolutely everywhere you go, we'd probably forget about it! I'm not one for wanting to buy gifts for the sake of it so when Homesense asked me to have a look at their range, I was well impressed - because it features pieces that you will actually use after Valentines Day - here are some of my picks...

Pretty, Practical Desk Storage

If you're a regular around here, then you'll know homeware is my one true love. I love picking up random bits and bobs for my flat and, more than anything, I'm obsessed with storage. Because when you have a lot of crap, pretty storage boxes/bags/etc to keep said crap in are a bit of an essential! I got a desk about 6 months ago now and I love how profesh it makes me look but I absolutely hate it when it looks messy. So when Homesense asked me if I'd like to try out some of their storage solutions, I decided to go for desk storage...
