Sometimes I think the best bits of a room are always the small details.
Sprigs of fresh lavender stuffed into an enamel jug, candles in vintage style glasses, bright purple agapanthus, and cute summery prints.
I really hate air fresheners but I’m a big fan of scented candles and I picked up this one in Ikea this morning. I think even when it’s all burned out I’ll try and salvage the cup as a jewellery holder or something. I also found this white and green printed cotton in there. I love the little birds and it was only £1.80 for 60cm! I picked it out before I’ve even thought about what I could use it for. Maybe another top?
On a slightly different note, those of you who follow me on twitter (@HannahLayford) or instagram (@raspberrykitsch) will already have heard that I’ve been chosen as a lifestyle blogger for Benfield. That means I’ll be taking a little 5 week test drive of a new Kia Picanto and blogging about my adventures along the way! I’m really excited to get the car and can’t wait to share the trips I’m going to be making. I thought in addition to the blog posts though it may be nice to set up a pinterest board so I’ve started pinning bits and pieces relating to road trips because (obviously) I don’t have the car yet.. you can follow it here. Any ideas for nice trips out in the North East or England much appreciated. One of my friends helpfully suggested that maybe we could take it on the ferry to Norway. I can assure Benfield though that I told him this would definitely NOT be happening. Unless, of course, their insurance would cover me for a mini Euro road trip..
