A Homely Update

Hi Guys,

Over the past few weeks while I've had time off, I decided to get my room sorted out. It's quite an awkward shape so trying to fit my furniture in has been quite a challenge, but I think I'm finally alright with how it is and no longer smacking my shins off the bed!
I've also become just a tad obsessed with homeware, but really who can help it as there's so many great little bits out there at the moment. Plus I've got a new obsession with IKEA hacks, as if my IKEA obsession needed any more fuelling. Or my copper one which, well you'll see...
Ive wanted somewhere to keep my perfumes as when I keep them in the bottom of the drawer, quite a few get forgotten about. So the IKEA SKURAR Candle Dish seemed a good place to start. Plus once I moved around the furniture the IKEA Alex Drawers for my makeup, now act as the perfect way to block the suns rays from my perfume!

Primark also have a great stationary copper range available at the moment, including a Magazine File and Pencil Pot. Which have been perfect to keep any large books and magazines together as well as keep my new colouring in obsession neat and tidy.

I also picked up their To Do Chalk Board, which I thought I could fit all the blog twitter chats on, however theres more of them than there is space. So for just now theres only a few on there but it may change.

Two of my favourite other shops to pick up homeware bits, especially in copper are Marks and Spencer's and Oliver Bonas. Where I found the Jewellery Box and Trinket Box, Marks and Spencer's is actually a fantastic shop for homeware, especially at Christmas time!
The laptop stand over my bed is actually my first IKEA hack, it might not be the most impressive. As it is just the VITTSJO Laptop Stand sprayed copper, but it actually worked so I'm pleased with that! I also sprayed a little Hello Sign from Primark that hangs over my bed. I actually thought when I saw the Instagram pictures of this that it was copper and not neon orange, but I had my heart set on copper!

I also house all my camera caps for some reason in a Copper Bamboo Bowl from Oliver Bonas on my dressing table. Along with my favourite nail varnish of the moment from Tanya Burr's new range, called Duvet Day

Finally I love picking up little bits like my Copper Tea Light Holders, from a local shop called Scissors Paper Stones. Its like a little treasure trove of homeware, crafts and personalised gifts!
