My Wreck This Journal!

Hey guys! I purchased my Wreck This Journal well before Christmas and never did anything with it but recently I have been loving just picking it up and browsing which page I want to do and then just starting it or planning it! I haven't done that many pages and honestly what I've done is pretty simple but I love all my pages:) This sort of thing is so handy when travelling on planes or car rides because you can get so distracted in it that the time just flies past!
A little information about the Wreck This Journal! I bought mine for £8.99 from Waterstones but you can pick it up from online stores like Amazon for a little cheaper. Keri Smith, the creator of Wreck This Journal, has also created a load of other books which, just like this one, are completely interactive.
Enough of the babble, these are the pages that I have started, I hope you like them:)

Having something like this book in my life has really helped me relieve a lot of emotions. I'm the kind of person to bottle everything up and having something that I can pick up and throw at a wall if I'm feeling angry is so handy! I would recommend this book to absolutely everyone!
Anyway, that's all for now! I'm thinking of making this into a monthly thing where I update you on what I've done, what do you think?

Homeware Haul!

Long time no post! I have been so busy these past 6 months and I really have left my blog bare. But I'm back and bringing you guys a homeware haul!
I've been decorating my bedroom for about 2 months now, buying little bits and bobs from Primark, Ikea and Homebase. I've been loving copper accessories lately so there is going to be a bit of a pattern in his haul! So, without further ado, lets get into it!

First up we have Primark. My favourite thing that I've bought has to be my Buddha. This little guy was £3 and has such a rustic dirty feel about it. Next up it got these indoor LED string lights that I have yet to hang up! These were £6 and look absolutely gorgeous when light. My last Primark purchase is a double sided cushion. On one side there is a hamsa hand/hand of Fatima that says "Be Here Now" and on the other just green and grey kind of mandala pattern.

I got some gorgeous Cacti from Ikea which are sat in this wooden heart shaped dish from The Range. The cacti were £4 for the 3 and I love them so much! Also from Ikea I got the Skurar flower pot to keep all of my makeup brushes in, so practical and so pretty. Both of these items are on top of my Alex 9 drawer which is currently empty as I've only just built it:)

From Homebase I got a really basic table lamp to put next to my bed. I think this was £10 and I'm not sure if I'm going to spray it copper or not yet. I also got a paint tester in Grenadine Green 2 which I'll be using to paint one wall

My final thing is a map of the world from Urban Outfitters which cost me £5. I have a really cute idea about this map but it'll have to wait until I've decorated.

That's it for this post! Hope you guys liked it and there shall be a post all about my bedroom once I've finished it!
