Hello everyone! I thought that I'd jump straight in with a few recent home purchases. But what about an introduction? I'm sure some of you are wondering why I haven't started with telling you a bit about me, well... I wasn't really sure what to say so if you'd like to know who I am before you start reading my post then head on over to the About page. Otherwise, lets get cracking...
I love this pale pink alarm clock! It's something that I've been wanting for ages to replace my old yellow alarm clock (yellow? I know, yuck!) and I finally found one today at my local Debenhams store. The pale pink colour compliments all of the white furniture in my bedroom because it adds a bit of colour but isn't too bright. There's an adjustment wheel on the back of the clock so that I can set an alarm, although I've yet to use it - but I'm sure it isn't too difficult to use. The only issue I may have with it is when I'm trying to get to sleep as the seconds hand makes a noise when it moves, which could prove to be rather annoying!
This picture frame is also from Debenhams - I found it whilst searching for the alarm clock. I love the pretty patterns on the frame and, even though I don't know what photos I'm going to put in it yet, I couldn't resist the urge to buy it anyway.
I've never kept any plants in my room before but a friend pointed these out to me on a recent visit to Ikea and I thought they'd be a great decoration for my room. Each cactus is in a plant pot, which is filled with soil, and that's inside the white pot so when you water them it won't leak out and make a mess of your room! Additionally, they don't have to be watered very often so if I forget to do that (which is highly likely!) they won't die. Unfortunately you can't order these online at the moment but who doesn't like a trip to Ikea anyway?
Let me know in the comments below what home decorations you've bought recently or any that you would like to buy.
