As soon as autumn hits I’m all about fairy lights, spicy scented candles and cosy cushions! There’s nothing I love more then snuggling up on the sofa on a dark chilly evening after work with a hot chocolate. It’s almost time for me to bring out my autumn/winter decorations and bedding which get more and more festive towards Christmas!  Each season I can’t help but do a little bit of window shopping for new homewares and there are some really gorgeous cute around at the moment.  George at Asda especially has some really cute bits and pieces on their website…

I know it’s still a few weeks away yet, but after getting down all of our Christmas decorations from the attic we really got into the festive spirit! We decided to have a little pre-Christmas buffet for dinner (the best kind of dinner) after putting up the tree to try out some new tableware. Out came the tartan table runner, the snazzy new wine glasses, and all of the Christmas themed tableware. Along with festive dinnerware; pretty tea light candles are great for decorating a dinner table at Christmas time to give a fun festive atmosphere. Dinner Table Paper plates…

I was recently invited by Ocean to take part in a blogger project to pick some of my favourite Christmas home decorations for a total of up to £50. I’m actually quite impressed with how much £50 can get you when you shop in the right places!  I’ve wanted one of these naked little twig trees for ages and I was even considering making my own from branches found in the park! But this was much easier and more practical, and it has the added benefit that it has built in fairy lights! How cute! Can you believe it was…

Another scheduled post for you; today I’ll be having my bandage lenses removed at Optimax.. yay!   Recently interiors and homeware has become one of my favourite things to blog about (despite not having a place of my own!) so here is another homely post. My dressing room generally has quite a basic colour scheme as it has all white furniture and duck egg blue walls and accessories, which I do love, but the room now has a new addition.. I was asked by Out There Interiors to style up an item as part of their #MyCountryStyle project and I chose…

I love the beginning of November because for me it officially marks the run up to Christmas! It’s the time of year when I give my wardrobe a clear out, buy some new knitwear, and refresh my bedroom.  The pretty floral bedding and pastel print cushions are banished away until spring time and out comes my winter duvet and snuggly blankets.  This year I have a few new additions to my winter wonderland bedroom thanks to George at Asda including this beautiful cosy red checked duvet set. The deep red and cream colours are so lovely for this time of…

I’m forever adding new things to my bedroom to make it more cosy for me and kitty, and recently I gained two new additions. I’ve never had a ‘proper’ set of curtains up in my room before as I could never find any that fit my colour scheme. So I had actually sewed a double bed sheet into curtains which I had up for over 5 years! They weren’t too bad to be honest, but as they were quite thin they let a lot of light in as they weren’t lined.  So ta da! Now I have a stunning new…
