The other day we ventured up to Leeds to drop my sister off at Uni. It made me feel so nostalgic seeing all the freshers getting accommodated in a new city. While we were there we couldn’t resist having a look around Ikea. I absolutely love that store! I entered with the mindset that I would just be picking up a few notepads, what I left with was less money than I intended. Part of it was due to not knowing when we’d be back, as we, sadly, don’t have an Ikea close to where we live. So I thought it would be good to stock up on things while we were there.
I bought this small glass vase which is perfect for storing my paintbrushes. Next, I bought a few more notepads. The paper quality isn’t the best by no means, but they’re relatively cheap, and I think you want something like that for sketching ideas and quick lists. I have wanted a low-maintenance plant like a cactus for a while so I picked up this 3-pack, they’ve really helped to rejuvenate my desk! Finally, I couldn’t resist throwing in a few scented candles too, it was difficult narrowing down the choices.
A few things I’ve acquired for the next adventure – minus the cactus. My old blue Vans were getting a little run-down so when I saw that Asos were having a ‘20% off everything’ day I jumped at the opportunity of purchasing a new pair.
Next up the GoPro! I’ve wanted one of these for a while but at the time couldn’t justify buying one. However, my next travel dates are quickly emerging and I know that I definitely want to have a go at making a film this time. I usually bring disposable, waterproof cameras on holiday anyway so I guess this was the next, inevitable, step up!
Finally, a beautiful leaf print bikini, I love the Martinique vibes it has going on.
