Scented candles – I find they’re a little bit like marmite; people either seem to love them or hate them. I’m definitely a lover of them and with the chilly winter evenings and dismal rainy days, there’s something lovely about lighting a couple of candles and getting cosy.
That said, having two nosey cats in the house is a bit of a fire hazard, so we can only ever light candles if they’re tucked away safely inside the lanterns we have in our living room, otherwise there would be absolute carnage!
I was very kindly gifted with these beautiful flowers. All opinions are, of course, 100% honest and my own.
I don’t know if it’s just me, but there’s something about having fresh flowers in the house that makes me feel like I’ve got my life together. Sure I might be behind on the housework because I spent my evening binge watching the latest must-see Netflix Original, but if I’ve got a full vase on the windowsill I feel like I’m winning at life. An illusion of organisation and running a home like clockwork!

This year I have promised myself I’m going to reach peak adulthood. I want to organise myself better, get a grip of things and stop living in a whirlwind of chaos and activity. Part of this successfully-being-a-grown-up plan is to finally finish decorating the house. We’ve done almost everything, but there’s still the stairs and landing to do, plus the bathroom; both of which I’ve been putting off as, to be honest, they seem like hard work.
Homesense very kindly gave me a gift card so I could treat myself to some Christmas goodies. All opinions remain 100% honest and my own.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year and what better way to celebrate than spending a happy hour trawling the shelves of what I consider to be the most wonderful shop on the High Street?
This past week I have been suffering with some sort of behemoth of a cold virus. My voice reduced to nothing but a squeak, my throat felt like there was a tiny little Samurai in there going to town with his blade, and I’ve been barking out a cough that sounds a lot like an angry donkey. All in all, I’ve not been a very well person. I cancelled the plans I had for Friday, Saturday and Sunday to enable me to take 15,000 naps instead, but there was one thing I wasn’t going to miss and that was a trip to Homesense to look at what festive goodies they had in stock and grab me some Christmas essentials!

Do you ever just sit there, lost in thought, imagining all the things you would do if you won the lottery? If you didn’t have to work and money wasn’t an object?
I have. In fact, I’ve been thinking about it for years and, honestly, my dreams have remained the same for so long that I think they’re pretty much set in stone.
As well as my previously mentioned ‘make my family financially stable’ and ‘see the world’, one unshakeable dream I’ve had for the longest time is building our own house. To buy a house is all well and good, but to be able to build one that you have created in your mind and can make into a reality just seems so magical!
