New year, new you, right? If one of your goals for this year is to be more organised them I’ve got a few tips for you. These are based on skincare and beauty because it’s one of the things that I hate to be disorganised because it’s so hard to find the eyeliner or moisturise sample you want in a massive dark makeup bag, isn’t it? Obviously, these tips can transfer to whatever you want to organise! For me, it’s my kitchen cupboards next. If someone could buy me a spice rack, I’d love you forever.
I’ve always thought that mismatched, crazy Christmas trees have so much more personality that perfect decorated, stuck to a colour theme trees. This post is short and sweet today but I just had to share the cutest Harrods Christmas decorations that I’ve added to my tree this year. I mean, how cute is Hugh the bear in ornament form? I’m also 100% obsessed with the sparkly tartan beauty and the purple, ivory and gold tear drop shaped bauble.
Winter is well and truly here and our minimalist bedroom can feel a little ‘cold’ as we haven’t quite finished our decorating and styling in there. I’ve taken the opportunity to have a little online shop around and pick some pieces that I’d like to add!
First up, the Miss Etoile Closed Eyes Cushion is super cute and would add some personality to the room. Some more personality-adders are prints and we don’t have any yet up in our room. This Wimbledon Print and Michelle Collins Mountain Print, both from John Lewis are so pretty, I love the colours.
If your bathroom isn’t a space that you’re in love with, then that’s got to change. How can you possibly relax and unwind in a space that you don’t love? You can’t! So, if you’ve fallen out of love with the design and decor of your bathroom, it’s imperative that you do something about it.
Interior design and decorating my home is one of my favourite things to spend money on. Of course, I love beauty and shopping for clothes but you’ll probably more likely see me buying a fresh and fancy cushion than a new blusher!
I picked up this Homebase Chrome Ball Floor Lamp the other week to add yet another light source into my living area in the flat. We already have a large black and chrome oversized lamp in the opposite corner and usually just have the two of them on and this gives a really nice light to the room as opposed to having the ‘big’ light on. For just under £30 I thought this pretty Homebase number was super good value and it looks much more expensive than it actually is. I love a bargain! It’s sitting pretty next to my minimalist frame wall and my plant stand which usually houses fresh flowers (when I remember to buy them!).
If I had to choose one region to visit or style to wear or even Pinterest board to just pin to forever it would be something Scandinavian. I’m dying to visit Sweden, Denmark and Norway just to see if it’s really as awesome as Pinterest makes it look. I love the interiors, the fashion and the food looks pretty great too. I mean, IKEA meatballs are probably hardly on par with actual Swedish meatballs but I think they’re pretty good! Here are three things to focus on if you want to Scandi up your life a little bit!
From bed linen to cushions and throws, mixing prints can be a fun and exciting way to decorate your home but it can also be quite daunting because it’s a little more permanent than with fashion. House of Fraser has put together this funky and super helpful infographic all about mixing prints in your bedroom decor.
Decorating your home is not an easy task but the bottom line is that we can all be quite house proud. Some people love their living spaces to standout. With that in mind, I thought I would share with you five methods to help you achieve that. I hope it provides you with a little inspiration to step things up a notch in your home!

I know it’s uncharacteristically warm for September but I’m really craving a temperature drop! I can’t wait to layer up with cosy scarves and knitwear and I always feel like I look nicer in the autumn and winter, style-wise. I’m much more comfortable when I’m wrapped up and I much prefer darker colours and thicker materials like leather and wool. Here’s my new season wish list. Come on weather, keep up!
