Getting organised :)

Hello, I hope you're well!

Since I started blogging a mere 6 months ago I have been using a corner of my bedroom with a really cheap (I think the cheapest there is in fact!) desk from Argos. Perfectly fine to be honest, it's reasonably sturdy and looks ok in my opinion.
But being that I love my home furnishings, I have since amassed a number of items and pictures I would like to have on my desk, but quite quickly I'm running out of space.

So on a recent trip to IKEA with my sister (Hi Sis, I know you're reading this!) I brought a lovely new and bigger desk, complete with draws. The desk I chose was called Limmnon/Alex. Which actually consists of a table and the draws sit independently underneath.

After about an hour and a half and help from the husband (Hi Dan, I hope you're reading this too!) the desk was complete. This time I placed it in the opposite corner of the bedroom as there is more space (plus it's in between the bed and en suite-perfect!).
I then finished it with the frames and decorative accessories I have been itching to put on it.





The result, more space, and a writing area that I hope is more conducive to writing.

I also wanted to include in this blog my dining table as I have Easter-ified it. I think I should of been Visual Merchandiser as I love creating displays. It may be slightly indulgent, but I try to make my table seasonal. I,e. Festive, Autumnal and right now spring themed.
A few months ago I had the idea of wanting a white wire tree that I could hang ornaments off. A bit like an all year round Christmas tree, but not a Christmas tree if that makes any sense!
I eventually found one in work of all places and since brought hanging ornaments for it. To make it more seasonal I added some glass egg baubles from Tiger.
I also took inspiration from Zoella and purchased a faux grass table runner from Tiger for all of £3! I think this looks really pretty with the tree placed on top. I'm thinking how I can utilize this for summer. Perhaps a pretty bouquet of summer flowers? Will get my thinking cap on!






I also recently purchased a plastic draw set to use next to my dressing table (I say dressing table in the loosest term. It's my previous desk!). I've been wanting to get this from over year now and I'm glad I finally did. Means I can stash all my make up in the drawers. I also love the rainbow colour of the draws.






















And finally I purchased a lovely cushion from Homesense. It caught my eye as I walked past and I went it to look at it closed up. It is by Emma Bridgewater which does pretty home ware pieces. I thought it would be about £15, so was pleasantly surprised when the price tag said £6.99.
To go with this I brought a pink and white checked cushion from my trip to IKEA. The cushions complement themselves really well and I think look very pretty on my pink floral pattern IKEA duvet cover.



I now feel my bedroom (which I do share with Dan but you'd never guess!) is my little haven, I can roll from bed, to desk, to bathroom and to dressing table in only a matter of steps!



I hope you like what I have done and gives you some inspiration for spring!

Until next time,

Love,
