Last month I posted about this wooden shelf that I had bought from the carboot sale for £1. It had already been given a pretty poor coat of white paint by the previous owner, and overall it was really tatty and needed a good clean up and make over. I could see the potential in it immediately and snapped it up. I thought it would be absolutely perfect in my dressing room for displaying my pretty perfume bottles. I could picture in my head how I wanted it to look, and the exact space I knew it would fit into.…

If you’re local (Milton Keynes) then you probably know that there’s a new Home Bargains store that’s been built at the retail park in Bletchley! There is also another HB store about a mile down the road on the high street, but I think I prefer the big shiny new one! They have so many lovely things in at the moment so I thought I’d do a little collective haul post on the goodies I bought recently. They’re stuff is such good value, and you have to be pretty quick, because once it’s gone sometimes doesn’t come back in stock.…

As the items came from all different sellers on the website I got lots of separate parcels, so it was a little bit like opening birthday presents when they all arrived! Poor Mr Postie. Anyway, I thought I’d do…

Sorry it’s been two weeks since my last blog post and I’ve been a little bit quiet; life has taken quite a turn lately and I’ve been struggling to get motivated if I’m honest. However, I am now trying to end my invite only pity party so I’m pushing through with my latest blog post! BHS may not be the first place you think of to buy stylish homewares, but they do have a very impressive range of house goodies and they’ve recently collaborated with (my fav) Holly Willoughby on a vintage chic range. They have some really pretty pieces…
