So it always happens to me, I go in a store to buy ONE thing, and come out with so much more. I’m a sucker for multi-buys, especially for products I would have wanted anyway! I’ll share with you my wonderful purchases of the week.
Valentine’s day doesn’t have to be about buying fancy things, you make it what you want! It’s about spreading the love to your friends and family as well as your significant others. Don’t have a boyfriend or girlfriend? Do something nice for a friend or stranger, you’ll feel all the better for it.
As the title suggests…It’s Pancake Day today!! I’m not going to lie, we have shrove Tuesday in America, but when I found out there was a day specifically to make and eat pancakes, I got a little more excited about moving to England.(Pancakes at Haagen Dazs I ordered on a trip to Belgium)
Since we started furnishing our place, the boy and I are super picky about what we get. We spent a year finding the right real looking fake flowers and tall vase to put in the bathroom (sad). It makes sense though that we don’t want to buy something just for the sake of it that may only be temporary. Waste of money anyone?
So after two years, bargain hunting and shopping in stores and online, I finally got a “dressing table”.Now I use quotations because it’s not meant to be a dressing table, its one of those half circle tables that you put in hallways and what not, but it was £15 at a charity shop – I saw it and fell in love. It has carved legs and carved detailing all around the front. Not to mention it has an imprinted real leather top! Bags of character, just how I like things. It’s the perfect size as well as I only had that little corner to work with. At the moment, I just propped a mirror we had in the house up along the back, but when we move my plan is to get a mirror and proper lights to mount on the wall.
