Homeware Haul

Doing a little haul today. 
Over the past few months I have brought a couple of things for my bedroom.
 I have also recently moved house which therefore means I can redecorate my room and make it more me! Its currently a cream colour which I don't really mind but its quite old fashioned and I would love to make it more modern. I think I am going to have a white, blue and grey themed room as I am loving these 3 colours together at the minute. 

I went to Ikea, and brought lots but most of it is furniture, so its very hard to take photos of it. (Maybe soon I may do a room tour, let me know if you would like me to do one).  However another thing I brought, is this cactus. These come in sets of 3 and my brother has the other 2. I think plants in your room in general look really nice, if you keep on watering them and not letting the die. 
I really like this cactus as its very different and I love that it looks like it has cob webs on it. 

As well as the cactus from Ikea, I picked up 2 Skurar pots for my makeup brushes. Even though these are plant pots, I think they are great size for makeup brushes or even a pen holder. I love the design of the Skurar range so much!
Lastly from Ikea, I picked up a vanity unit mirror, to go on my new vanity. This only cost £3.50! I think that is extremely good as these types of mirrors tend to be £10/£12. Okay I know the quality of it is not that good, but it does the job for me.

From Next I picked up this photo frame for £6. Its a light blue distress type look and I quite like the distress look on decor at the minute. I popped a postcard in it, as I need to print some of the photos out from New York and Ibiza from last year. 

From B&M, I brought the wicker hearts on a string.  This only cost £1.99 and I love it. It currently hangs of my wardrobe door nob, but soon it will be on my wall.  

From Homesense I brought this photo frame. Its a blue and silver metal frame and I literally fell in love with it when I saw it, I think this will go perfectly on a bedside table once my room is done! As you can see there's a dog in the frame and that's Molly from when she was younger.

I also picked up this candle called Silent Night from the national park I went to last year. Yes I know its a Christmas Candle but it doesn't smell that christmassy, its more of a fresh sense. 

Last thing are these wicker heart lights, from Asda costing £12. These are perfect to be hanged on top of my bed and when they are turned on they make my room look so cosy! As they are not just plain fairy lights they look good just as decoration and no need to turn them on when its the Summer.

I hope you enjoyed my little haul. Most of the things I brought are linked.

A Little Walk..

Today I would like to share with you some of the photos I took when I went for a little walk round a National Park, a few weeks back. 

I hope you enjoyed these photos. I know its not very christmassy, but not everyone enjoy christmas or even celebrate it.

My New Year Resolutions

2016 is coming to an end, which I am quite happy about as I love starting a new year even if that means I am getting a year older and time is going so fast! But then that also means more memories! 
This year I have done some amazing experiences which I would never in a million years would of thought I would have the opportunity to do. And this year has had a lot of downs but that's because I have let it happen to me. Therefore next year I am going to make it an amazing year!

Today I am going to share with you some of  my New Year Resolutions! 
Just to point out, I am not very good at sticking to things. 

>Be Much More Positive
If you know me, then you would know that I am such a negative thinker and everything I do, I would have a negative thought about it. 

>Be More Happy 
Being a negative thinker, does generally get you down, so trying to be positive will hopefully make me more happy. 

>Make tones of memories with family
This year I have spent most weekends with my family and I loved it! Making memories are great and then you can tell your children what you done when you were their age. 

I know revision isn't the funniest thing to do, but you only do your GCSE once, so you might as well put all your effort into it. 

>Get fitter
This may sound like a lie to do as I am a teenager but I generally think I do eat quite healthy compare to a lot of people who I know! But I would like to get fitter and I love walking my 2 dogs as well as cycle rides. Also did you know walking is meant to be the best exercise for you!?

>Live in the moment
I really do want to live in the moment not in the past or future. I am someone who tends to regret everything they do, just because I never really think things over I just do it, which is good in some ways but a few days later I will look back and be like why did I do that? 

That is just some things that I would like to do in 2017!
I also would like to blog more as I actually love it so much.

I hope your 2017 brings you so many happy memories
