You know when you were younger and the only sort of homeware you were interested in was glittery jelly candles and nice pink book ends? Remember that? Remember when your idea of a nightmare Saturday was watching your parents disappear into B&Q for HOURS whilst you sat in the car? Now look at you, look at what you’ve become.
I have it on good authority that not long after you become obsessed with vases and cushions and IKEA, you become quite obsessed with gardening. So yeah, think about that. Think about the days in the not so far future where you’re using a padded knee cushion thing to rest your joints whilst you weed – it’s terrifying, right?
In less aggressively scary news, here’s this week’s dreamy homeware wish list. It’s crammed with pretty things I’d like to put in my Ipswich home, except, wait no, I don’t have enough disposable income to throw my money in the air and dance around and buy EVERYTHING.
I do, however, have a £50 IKEA voucher that needs spending (thanks Santa), so shall be trotting down to the Lakeside store as soon as I can be bothered to face an hour long drive down the A12.
But yeah, I see a theme shining through. Gold, pink and THREE wash bags. It’s a good life being a cliche of a lifestyle blogger in her twenties, honestly.
