Dream a Little Dream.

I can’t help but find it somewhat amusing that whenever I have more than one day off in a row, I never know what to do with myself on the second day. The first day is always such fun and games and I take full advantage of not having to do anything or be anywhere, but the moment the second day hits, I’m at such a loss.

Today Is A New Day

As I get bored quite easily I try not to repeat what I did on the first day (in my case: writing, blogging and watching Bethenny), and try to keep things interesting by mixing it up. Today I’ve read through some of my writing, scrolled through the blog, tumbl’d and read through some other blogs; as well as having a lengthy text conversation with one of my best friends about the fabulous craziness that is The Real Housewives series’.  And I also found a recipe for a ‘Pizza Casserole’ that I’m dying to try out soon (watch this space!). Time seems to have zoomed by so quickly and it’s really shown me the black hole of life that is tumblr, pinterest, and just about anything technological or internet related.

So anyway, before I bore you with even more intricate details of my day so far, I thought I’d share some of the pictures I’ve found on my never-ending spiral through the bottomless internet pit.

As you’re probably aware by now, in a few short weeks, I’ll be moving in with my friends and while I’ve been too consumed with work, sleep, writing and blogging to make any furtive plans about the important things like: my bedroom, when to start packing, when to start properly moving things, what other things to buy; I figured I could at least start looking at inspiration so that I know what kind of things to keep an eye out for.

I’m a simple girl at heart and find nothing more soothing than thick, crispy, clean white sheets and duvets and pillows and covers. But even I can appreciate the zany prints, bold colours and bright lighting.

Dream bedroom.

The pinterest setup is very interesting and I’m sure it’s super addictive, but considering how obsessed and loony tumblr’s made me, I don’t think I’ll be setting up a pinterest account anytime soon – otherwise I know I’ll have even less of a life (if that’s even remotely possible). Anyway, let me know what you think and which bedroom inspiration was your favourite.

The Key(fob) to Love.

In a few months I’ll be moving in with my three best friends and I am so BE-YOND excited to be living with my gals. I’m so excited I can feel myself about to go off on a tangent about how excited I am and about how much I love my friends – (just for the record, I love my friends so much they have become like my sisters, and I seriously cannot wait for us all to live together) – okay, love fest over.

So anyway, you know what they say about the devil’s in the detail? Well they couldn’t be more right. Since I’ll be moving into a new house, it means I’ll be on the lookout for the ultimate accessory. Forget about furniture and crockery (which I’m sure will most definitely come in handy), I’m talking smaller. I’m going to need to carry my brand new house keys in style ;). Here are a pick of my favourite key fobs.

YVES SAINT LAURENT

I’ve had my eyes on this particular key fob for quite some time, and if it wasn’t for the £90 price tag, I would probably have snapped it up by now. Price aside, what’s not to love about this gold-tone brass key fob with a ‘love’ charm, reminiscent of Louise from St. Louis’ ‘love’ key fob in Sex and the City. With this key fob, love will always be around.

Yves Saint Laurent 

DOLCE & GABBANA

This locket and vegetable key fob is for the inner gardener or farmer. Adorned in multi-coloured vegetables and a gold lockets, this key fob hints at a rural Italy (the home of the designers) and feels fresh, yet understated.

Dolce & Gabbana 

SMYTHSON

Fall in love every time you reach for you keys with this ruby red textured-leather key fob, with two smaller gold-tone love hearts. I’m not really a fan of leather accessories like key fobs, but even this one managed to warm my heart.

Smythson 

CATH KIDSTON

Cath Kidston is known for its cutesy floral design and simple elegance, and these key fobs do not disappoint. With three different designs to choose from (or why not just get all three?) you’ll evoke a sense of the English countryside style and still have chic keys.

Check back over the next couple of months to see how the move is going on as well as inspiration for the home and some of my purchases.
