I have my heart set on turning our home into some kind of tropical, jungle oasis. The best evidence of this is our living room…
I like to spend a lot of time on the sofa, in my pjs – call it self-care, laziness or constant IBS fatigue – so it’s important for me and my sanity to have something nice to look at. Other than my husband, obvs.
If, like me, you suffer with an overly anxious mind you’ll recognise the importance of self-care, especially around the busiest time of the year, Christmas. For me, it’s important to carve out time each week to unwind, de-stress and pamper myself. Whether you’re buying for yourself or a friend, these ten items will make that self-love process even better.
I am obsessed with many things in life, my bunny, glitter, fugly shoes, cake, talking about IBS and Led Zepp. I was brought up on a mix of classic club bangers and George Michael courtesy of my mum, and Led Zepp, Simple Minds and U2 due to my dad. While I still love all genres listed above, it was always Led Zepp that captured my heart.
Every now and then I like to torture Al by dragging him, kicking and screaming, around the mecca that is IKEA. It’s not a pretty sight, but we always leave with more than we came for. I believe that every IKEA trip goes a little like this…
Originally, today’s WIOW item was going to be some badass culottes, however I blinked and they sold out. So instead, I’ve turned to my second love, buying stuff for my humble abode. And in this case, a bloody gorgeous mirror.
We’ve been living in our little maisonette coming up for two years now and it’s taken us a while to get round to decorating, but slowly and surely we’re starting to put our stamp on the place. These are the four things that we need to put the finishing touches to our living room.
We’re in the exciting process of having our bathroom decorated, taking us from 70’s peach everything to my favourite shades of white and grey, featuring some gorgeous things from http://thebestflushingtoilet.com as well. Where we’re at now means I have a luxurious new bath that while we don’t have a shower, I’m indulging in completely. Because baths rock.
We finally decorated our living room over a year after we moved in and while it’s so close to being complete, we have a huge empty space in the corner by the back door. I’m currently undecided as to whether I should fill it with some kind of badass plant thing or a drinks trolley.
