Today I thought I would show you some snippets of our home. We recently moved, and the flat is no where near all sorted yet, but there are a few areas that are coming together nicely so I thought I would throw in a lifestyle post for a change and share some snippets with you.

Starting from the top, I went a bit mad in TKMaxx when first moved over a year ago, and bought a selection of duck egg blue bits and bobs for our kitchen. I love the vintage/shabby chic style of these canisters, not that I delve into them that often - I don't drink hot drinks! We have a utensil pot and biscuit tin to match, I had to get matching pieces. The stackable mugs are a bit garish, but I bought them on a whim waaaay back in the day when ASOS sold homewares! Anyone else remember that? I think they kinda go with the colour scheme though! Vanilla scents are my favourite, I've strategically placed numerous candles and reed diffusers around the flat to keep it smelling nice.

I felt we needed some plants in the flat, however I didn't want much responsibility, so I opted for these cute miniature cacti from Ikea. You get 3 in a set for £4.50, which I feel is a pretty good deal. Cacti don't need much attention, they stand there looking pretty and you hardly ever water them! Perfect for someone as forgetful as me!  When in Ikea I also purchased some new beauty storage. Tom was my saviour and put it all together for me, after I had a little moan that I couldn't do it! I got the Malm 6 drawer dresser as I felt it was the most suitable piece for my needs - however I cant actually see into the mirror without a step.. I am so short! In typical blogger style I picked up the white plant pots. While I was there another girl was popping a couple into her trolley. I then heard her say to her boyfriend ' I know these are plant pots, but im using them for my makeup storage' We then gave each other a knowing smile. Great minds... or it just shows the power of blogging!

Finally a snap of my bedside table. You cant get this specific bedding from Ikea anymore, but they do have a lot of lovely designs available at the moment. The basket is just full of some beauty bits and bobs that I am using on a daily basis. Of course my ipad is there, as I always watch Youtube videos when I wake up in the morning, and just before I sleep I catch up on blogs. It's a lot less bulky than a laptop that's for sure!

So there you go, a little insight to our lovely new home. I hope you liked this post. It was a little different to what I usually do, but I thought I would shake things up a bit. Do let me know in the comments if you'd like to see more lifestyle posts on here. They are a bit few and far between at the moment!

Much Love.
