Hello again

Oh what a weird and wonderful few months it has been. And by a few months, I of course mean around one and a half years. I won't go on and bore you all with an explanation but lots of things have been happening over the last wee while and this has resulted in me not having time to dedicate to my blog. Boy, I missed it. 

I hope to be back in the swing of things again soon and aim to have a post or two out every week for the foreseeable. I also want to implement more travel alongside lifestyle and beauty which is what I already posted about.

Who knows, I might even start blog designing again as this was thoroughly enjoyable.

I hope you have all been well and am excited to be chatting to you all again soon!

The warm weather here up North has made me realise how very impractical the clothes in my wardrobe are. It's no secret that I much prefer Autumn over the other three but when you are faced with temperatures up 24C in your home city and are in a puzzle over what to wear that's when you know you need to go shopping! Above I have listed a few pieces of clothing I have my eye on and some I have already purchased. I think it's important to purchase clothes that could be worn throughout the year where possible and hopefully, some of the items I have listed above will help me meet that goal.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post, Summer is almost over but for now lets make the most of it :)

Wishlist: Cushion Galore

I've been doing up a few rooms in the house recently, specifically transitioning the rooms from the Autumn/Winter decor to give it a more Spring/Summer type of feel. This obviously means brighter colours or even pastels - something a little more vibrant. The easiest way to transition rooms into the next season, I feel, is by upgrading your cushions. This small change can bring around such a huge difference to any room, be it the lounge or even the bedroom. I thought I would share a few of my picks today...

I'm loving this bright yellow cushion, it features a quarter foil print and would make such a huge difference to a room, it's from Yorkshire Linen Co's linen cushions collection and is so inexpensive. I have one very similar in the office and it looks great against my white furniture, really brightens up the area. Bright colours are really eye catching, but cushions with one-liners are too. This cushion from Etsy is dark in colour but the bright white slogan is apt for the current season! The next two cushions are from H&M, they have such an amazing range of homeware and the items are so inexpensive. I love these geometric cushions! My fifth pick is a lot pricier than the others but you totally get what you pay for. The geometric print is on another level, and the blue and peach shade blend together perfectly - it's from Urban Outfitters. My last pick is a must have check cushion cover from Dunelm, this light blue shade would look perfect with white decor.

Hope you enjoyed this post - I included a few different stores just to give you some variety. In the Spring and Summer, I always go with brighter cushions in general. Geometric patterns seem to have carried through to this season which is nice to see so that too is a great way to update your rooms!

Let me know what you think? Do you update your decor often? I probably do it excessively!
