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...

  1. YC are the best to give a room some delicious scent. I need to pick up few candles soon! :)

    1. they really are! my favourite one is the clean cotton one - really recommend it! xx

  2. There are some beautiful student houses in Jesmond, not very homey though - love the things you've picked up to make the space yours!
    We've put up a recent home haul :)

    1. we looked round quite a few houses in jesmond but the one we are in currently is the nicest one we saw by faaaar - worth paying the extra ££. thanks - can't wait to look at what you've bought! xx

  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
