Full Bloom

One of my favourite sources of inspiration is the magazine Bloom. A trend led horticultural magazine that also brings in elements of fashion and design. It features beautiful and romantic shoots that have a really strong sense of mood. Here's a pick of my favourites... X

The festivities are over, and I've had my fill of turkey sarnies but what a fab weekend! Most of my gifts had a homely theme to them, possibly something to do with me relocating to Nottingham on the 4th January. Not a new move as I attended university there, but this time I have my own flat and I don't have to live with smelly students - yay! So forgive me if my posts get a little 'interiors' themed, but I'm rather excited about having my own place. X

The joys of working in retail means my shift starts at 4.30am tomorrow and I can't sleep... As I have to work amongst those crazy sale shoppers I've decided to indulge my self in a little sale shopping too. I couldn't face the crowds though, online from Graham & Green I've bought this lovely quilt, perfect for my new flat (more about that later). X

Season's Greetings!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all had a lovely time like I did, and got something nice from Santa. I spent Christmas Eve the same way I always do, with my best friends :) Swapped Secret Santa presents, ate lots and watched Christmas Peep Show - perfect night! Christmas day was just as good, dinner followed by presents, then off to the boy's house for games and more pressies. I have been a spoilt girlie. 

Last week I got my tax back from last year (hurrah!) and decided to treat myself to a rather nice camera. Here are some snaps from the weekend, not a pro yet... just been playing, but more to come soon! X

Masquerade Ball

This year's Christmas party is a Masquerade Ball, I'm hoping to make my own, taking inspiration from this lovely lot. I'll post a piccy of the finished product... if I'm not too ashamed of my creation! X

During yesterdays clear out I found some bits that I thought I'd lost. I bought these postcards at an antique fair while I was doing a project on The Romance of Travel. X

I hope after all these stamps this postcard finally made it to its destination of Bedford.

Home Sweet Home.

Today I'm in the mood to tidy and organise, mostly my study and bedroom (both a complete mess). These photos remind me of how lovely my room can be when I've tidied...  

One of my favourite possessions - dresser from my Gran's house that I sanded and painted.
