Christmas break has been really fun this year, it’s been packed full of cute activities and all the festive feels. Daytime beers, Christmas tree festivals, the panto, snacks all the time, seeing my favourite people for brunch and apparently only wearing monochrome outfits with statement cross body bags.
I haven’t written an interiors related post for a while! I wrote about tropical trends at Victoria Retail Park, Scandi bedroom inspo and bathroom storage tips this year though if you fancy a read. I may not write about interiors weekly as I might do food or fashion but it’s definitely still something that I think about on a daily basis. Usually, it’s just pinning on Pinterest or liking some of my favourite house-related Instagram accounts, but I love interiors!
A lot of people say that they don’t have time for working out or they ‘hate the gym’ or even that they’re just not good at exercise. The same people usually say how they’d love to have the motivation to do it or they’d love to find something they’re good at. It’s simply not true that you can’t be good at exercise and you can’t find something that you enjoy that will keep you fit and healthy. It’s 2016, there are so, so many ways of working out it’s incredible. You just need to find the workout that works for you!
Say hello to my favourite new trousers. They’re just like forgotten P.E kit tracksuit bottoms and they really are the comfiest things ever! Plus, they go with almost everything because, monochrome. These ASOS babies are also under £30 which is a super-bargain and are really great quality. Styled up here with my (also favourite and super comfortable) Vans Old Skool and trusty white knit.
Finally, we have a bedroom that’s actually relaxing, comfortable and just downright nice to be in. Recently we’ve tackled painting the walls – three white and 1 elephant grey as seen on my Insta – and getting ourselves some curtains and a new wooden Venetian blind. Our bedroom is really coming together and I thought I’d share a few of my favourite bits! First up our bed sheets are all about the geometric, the monochrome and the yellow which is our main accent colour. I picked the fluffy cushions up in Primark for only £4 each and they are SO soft it’s unreal. The rest of the cushions are IKEA and the sheets are George at Asda.
This post is all about the softest, buttery leather skirt I have ever seen! It’s so comfy and easy to wear, it goes with anything but for this outfit post I decided to go for a more casual look with my Nike Air Max Thea trainers & a Vans t-shirt. This skirt is from Warehouse, a brand I’ve often walked past I’ll admit it, in favour of other places like Zara but I will definitely be shopping there more in the future. I’ve recent just bought the leather jacket in a wish list post I did a few weeks ago and I’ve been so impressed with it. I had a faux-leather skirt from Miss Selfridge which was a size too big for me and looked nowhere near as nice as this one so that’s been forever shunned in the place of this beauty! My favourite new A/W piece. Check out the rest of the skirts at Warehouse, you’ll definitely find one that you’ll love!
Over the Bank Holiday weekend we tackled the next room of our house, decorating wise, our bedroom. Here are a few before photos, showing our room, warts and all with the grubby green colour. I think green is definitely now my least favourite colour after sleeping in this monstrosity for a few months. Right now, I never want to see another tin of paint again but there’s still more to do until we’re perfect!
These remind me of the classic slip-on Vans that I used to have when I was younger, the comfiest shoes ever! I’ve been seeing them a lot all over Pinterest, I know there’s some amazing Celine ones floating about in the fash world but clearly my student budget won’t stretch to those beauties. I was contemplating getting some all black Vans in this style but then my friend gave me a heads up about these lovely little ones from Topshop. As soon as I heard about them I snapped them up. I love the casual look they give
to an outfit, I can’t wait to wear them with my leather leggings and a cosy jumper! They’re furry too! Only £18 with student discount. What do you think?
