It’s been difficult to post since Christmas. My mother in law has been here and we’ve been out practically every day! My house literally looks like a tip and my laundry pile is so high I can’t see over it. Sigh, I guess that’s what happens when you are out all day and not doing any housework!
I was SERIOUSLY spoiled this Christmas. I don’t think I’ve ever been so spoiled actually!
My sweetie got me a Sony docking station for my iphone complete with DAB radio which if you’ve ever mucked about with a stupid aerial and still get a ‘snowy’ sound on your radio you’ll just love this! You see hubby being a bit of a tech-geek has set up our tv to connect to a computer and an amp and a playstation. Then you’ve got to change some or other setting, find the DVD section blah blah blah! Basically, you need a degree in rocket science! But now that I have my docking station on top of the fridge all I do is pop in my iphone and I can listen to whatever’s in my itunes. Yippee!
DH was just the sweetest of sweeties and got me a Lush gift voucher as a surprise gift. I was in there on boxing day and got some gorgeous products to pamper myself with.
The Hair Doctor is just amazing and is packed with Irish moss powder, extra virgin coconut oil, lanolin, almond oil, vegetable glycerine, soya lecithin and brewer’s yeast – all to condition, strengthen and mositurise the hair. Then to improve the shine it contains red henna and rosemary. Fullers earth absorbs grease and gives a deep down clean to the scalp, and peppermint stimulates the blood flow. This hair treatment is just AWESOME!!!
Cosmetic Warrior facepack tightens the skin, fights spots and gives the skin back its natural balance. And did I mention it leaves your skin feeling like silk afterwards?
I also got Ocean salt which is now my favourite face scrub and the tiny hands solid hand cream which is just luxurious and really cute in the shape of a hand.
And now for the kitchen makeover. I’ve decided that I’m sick and tired of living in this drab looking beige house and that I want to add a bit of my personality and bring the place to life. Generally, I’m going to make this house into a home. Starting with the kitchen. I’ve been searching online and here’s some of my inspiration.
I love the sort of kitschy Cath Kidston retro shabby chic look. It’s colourful, bright and cheerful. Everything a kitchen should be.
I adore the red and white polka dot crockery! I want it all. Loving the shelves displaying the crockery so it’s part of the decor.
No rest for the wicked, eh?
