what i've bought recently: home decor

Recently, I have moved into a new house - leaving behind basic, cramped halls for a 3 storey house in Jesmond with 6 of my friends - it truly is amazing although maybe anything is compared to university accomodation.. It's been a strange transition, and has made me realise how much I had missed living in an actual house with space to move around(!) and the ability to personalise rooms, to really make them my/our own. With pay day round the corner, I still have things I want to get to put the finishing touches onto not only my room, but the kitchen and living room too however I thought today, I would show you the bits I've gotten so far...


White rose fairy lights - currently on sale for £7.99 - link

  3. Lovely things! I especially think the elephant is cute, and when I finally get round to decorating my soon new bedroom I'll be buying lots of lights and candles too!
    I recently bought a cute little duck ornament called Greg - he's going to be the first addition to my new house when I buy it <3
