6 Chest of Drawers Perfect For Make Up Storage

After being inspired by Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup and Lily Pebbles on Youtube with their make up storage ideas I moved my teeny (in comparison to theirs!) make up and skincare collection to the top draw of my IKEA Malm chest of drawers.

I now have all my skincare, make up, nail varnishes and body care in one place as opposed to dotted around various places in our bedroom. I’m finding this a lot easier in the morning and things are so much tidier. With this in mind, here are 6 chests of drawers that are perfect for make up storage, whatever your budget and taste.

Christmas is definitely coming, the shops are bringing out all of their decs and the lights are going up all over town! Here’s my inspiration for this Christmas’ decorations and a few pieces I’d like to pick up for my tree this time around.

Christmas Decs2

My inspiration for the Christmas decorations I’m really loving this year is a Scandinavian Christmas, a lot of neutral colours and natural materials with pops of metallic and monochrome! There’s also a lot of geometric influences within the metals because I just love anything geometric at the moment, I just think it looks so cool and adds a different feel to Christmas as we know it.

Mini Bathroom Overhaul With H&M!

With H&M’s current 20% off (student discount, yeah!) currently on I popped in for a browse at lunchtime the other day and had to venture into the home section. I picked up three of these little black metal baskets to store skincare and shower products in my under the sink bathroom cupboard. Now this isn’t a cupboard that anyone sees into apart from us but I just thought it would be nice for it to be a bit more organised. Plus, they look really cute AND it’s going to be so much easier to just pull these out to clean the cupboard instead of every single product. How old do I sound?

Interiors: Spring Cushion Wishlist

Spring time is all about lighter colours, new textures and cute animal faces apparently! I’ve scoured some of the best high street home ware retailers for some fresh new soft furnishings. I’m loving the Baines & Fricker pastel cushion covers, they remind me of the tea-towels you used to draw your face on in primary school, really cute. I also really love the shiny texture of the metallic cushions next to some super fluffy fuzz from the Yorkshire Linen Co, they make a really cool contrast. What do you think of my spring cushion wish list? Check out the rest with the links below! How cute is the French Bulldog? cushions

Summer Interiors Wishlist: Yellow

I’ve been filling up my Interior Design & Decor board on Pinterest with a load of new inspiration for a new summery update for the house. I love contemporary furniture with a little mix of retro. I had a bit of a shelf re-jig a few month back and loved the yellow of the daffodils next to the green lamp. We have a few yellow accents around our living room and bedroom already so I thought I’d do some Pinterest stalking and find some more yellow inspiration. Check out the Assi Walnut Coffee Table in the middle from Danetti, how great would that look with a funky lamp and a plant on it?

My First Attempt at Shelf Styling

Here’s a little interiors update with my first shelf styling attempt in our living room! Our house is a mix of modern with some mid-century touches and a mix of monochrome with colour added in – plus it’s a mix of both me and Luke so the finished product is something that looks a little bit like this. I love shelf styling, I think it’s so clever – I’ve been poring over Pinterest for a few weeks now and finally decided to give it a little go.
