Home Decor #1: Yellow

1 comment


As I want to turn my blog into more of a 'home' blog, I've decided to put a new twist on my usual wishlist posts which I always love making. As well as my themed wishlists, I'm creating my own new series of 'Home Decor' and each time I'll bring you lovely products that I've found. I have lots of decor ideas in my head what with different colours, rooms and themes, I can channel my creativity and put each and every one of them into a wishlist style post showing you how you can style your home - and as always I'll be on the look out for bargains! For my first in the series I've gone with the colour yellow. Yellow always used to be my favourite colour as a child and I always remember having a light yellow jumper on it with white daisies that I loved so much. My sister has recently been adding in some yellows to her kitchen to brighten it up for Spring so I thought I'd pick out some of my favourite yellow items that are new on the high street.

My Dream Honeymoon Cruise Destinations*

Leave a Comment
I am yet to book my own wedding, never mind a honeymoon but that doesn't mean I can't dream does it?! My favourite holiday of all time has to be when my partner and I visited the Centara Ras Fushi Resort in the Maldives in April last year. It was magical and hard to believe that such a place of beauty actually exists! I'm definitely thinking that for our honeymoon we should go back to the Maldives, but I can also keep my options open too! With travel in mind, I thought I'd share with you  Cruise Club UK where you can book last minute cruise deals and not forgetting it's Valentine's Day tomorrow - who knows, maybe we'll get whisked away to somewhere exotic? Okay, maybe not, but who's to say we can't imagine?! I've never been on a cruise before and it's something that I'd love to try one day as you can wake up one day and be in a completely different place and then somewhere else the next - I love how varied that is. I'm suprised at how much choice there is to be honest, I wasn't expecting that you could visit all these places in one trip. Also I think it's great that you don't have to be hopping between airports and planes and being sandwiched up like sardines on a plane with that person in front of you leaning their seat back!! 


1) Being a girl on a budget the first cruise that definitely caught my eye were the deals for under £599 - bargain! That would be a pretty last minute deal for around two months notice but there are lots of last minute cruises to choose from. I still think that's pretty good going and plenty of time to get your bikini and sunglasses packed. There are so many different exotic locations of cruises to choose from and in all honestly I think they are pretty reasonably priced (which is just what  I need!). 

2) There's a 24 night Carribean cruise which takes you to St Lucia, Grenada and St Kitts as well as lots more locations - now that would be an amazing honeymoon! (Not that I'd be allowed off work that long though!!) I can just see me now in my sunhat and bikini stopping off at all these amazing locations with a cocktail and a good book in my hand - it's like something only the celebrities would get to access eh?! 

3) Dubai stay - how amazing would it be to visit Dubai? They have such a different culture to us that I think it would be really interesting to see - although it seems to becoming a cool place for the reality stars to be papped on the beach these days! 

4) Oh my gosh, Hawaii! A 16 night hawaiian holiday, yes please! Ever since seeing S Club 7 go to Miami and threw a Honolulu party, I've always loved the look of it - especially wearing a hula skirt and a coconut bra haha! On that S Club note, I just found Miami 7 on Youtube .. .be right back, you can thank me later!

5) The Prestige Cruise Club - well if we're going to do it, we may as well do it in style! This is owned by the same company however the cruise liners are more luxurious with super posh suites and lots of restaurants to choose from. If reading this has got you in holiday mode - check out my summer holiday beauty essentials.

So there we have it, some perfect honeymoon destination ideas! Like I said, I'm not going anywhere just yet but it's always good to have a look at the different places and prices that are available. I'm interested to know if you've ever been on a cruise before or whether it's not quite your thing? x

Dreaming Of Spring Days

We're almost entering into February now, meaning that Valentine's Day is coming up and also we're making our way towards Spring, so I thought I'd make a floral wishlist. I'd forgotten how much I love finding things to create wishlists, it's a bit like an online scrapbook that doesn't involve glue and scissors! As you can see above, I've filled this wishlist with lovely, pretty floral items which I adore. I've always been a huge fan of florals as they just never go out of fashion! I decided to include some homeware items in this wishlist too - which are all bargains! I also love these Miss Selfridge shoes (which I know for a fact I wouldn't be able to walk in!) - apparantly they are a bloggers favourite and are now sold out but I've been out of the loop lately so I've found a link to an ebay seller you can buy them from. I couldn't make a floral wishlist without including a stunning dress which I have chosen from their going out dresses range. No floral outfit would be complete without nails to match and a light perfume to accessorize. 

Are you looking forward to Spring? x

My Marquee LED Love Light

Leave a Comment

Marquee and LED lights are all over the home ware shops at the moment and I absolutely love this trend. I'm a sucker for a cute item which not only spruces the room up but will literally light it up too. I'm a huge fan of 'love' and 'home' plaques, so when I saw this 'Love' LED marquee light for a bargain price of just £10.00 - I added it to my basket straight away and the next day it was taking pride of place on my fireplace! Being white, it's completely versatile for any room and can be placed on a shelf, fireplace, coffee or bedside table - it will fit in cosily anywhere! What I love the most about LED lights and candles is how it creates such a calming effect. I know that I am home and ready to relax when my lights are switched on, my candles are lit and my TV is on ready to watch my favourite programmes - and that's when I am my calmest. 


I bought this light from Asda for a very reasonable price and in fairness it came wrapped up so tight it was like pass the parcel! Have you seen in weddings lately, a lot of people tend to have the huge LED love letters or their initials instead? Well I think that looks fabulous and is something I definitely want to have at my own wedding! This miniature version means that I get to see it everyday and only needs two batteries to keep it going. I thought I'd also show you how it looks when the main lights are off - it's so cute!

Yankee Candle's New 'Home Inspiration' Range

Leave a Comment


Ever since moving out, I've become a huge lover of candles. I've always been a little nervy around matches and never used to light candles in my bedroom but my partner has a gas lighter which means I don't have to worry about playing with matches anymore - cue my new obsession with candles. I tend to go through phases - I'll hoard shampoos, lipsticks and most recently - candles! My current favourites are using wax melts in my wax burner and I've also picked up a few bargain candles from B&M too. I can also recommend a candle company called Wickford & Co which are stocked in Home Bargains priced at an amazing £2.99 for a large jar! The scent fills the house too. With my new love of candles in mind and my 'new' home blog, I thought I'd show you some stunning new scents from Yankee Candle's Home Inspiration Range. All large jars cost £13 and there are also mini votives and wax melts available too if you're looking for something cheaper. So, what are the new scents?


All new scents seem perfect for the upcoming spring months - hopefully bringing us a little more sunshine and less gloomy mornings! I love the pastel packaging of the candles and I think I'll try out the Strawberries & Cream scent first - they all sound too good to be true! x
