A Mini Homesense Haul

We had to go out towards Wellington yesterday to get our car serviced and I’ve been wanting to go back to Homesense for a while so thought why not combine the two, especially since we don’t have a Homesense near here and our nearest one is in Taunton. It was actually a pretty awesome day yesterday, while we were without a car for a couple of hours we went walking instead and went to another garden centre (as you do!) we often visit there when we’re in the area but I’ve never walked there from the garage before.

Decorations For Halloween

This is the first year in a long time that I’ve got any Halloween decorations (except for a pumpkin that I carved the other year) but I’ve seen several other people (bloggers and people who post on YouTube) posting about Halloween decorations which gave me a bit of Halloween decoration envy to be honest so I thought I’d do a mini Halloween decoration area in my room.

A Tour Of My Room

If you haven’t already guessed by my sudden increase in blog posts on here over the past week, I’ve decided to take part in Blogtober. I didn’t want to say anything until now in case I got to day 3 and stopped, but here we are – day 5 and today I’m totally winging it. The posts on previous days were more planned out but today I’ve done the photos and writing all in the same day.

Generally speaking the furniture in my room is a bit mix and match, it’s not all one sort or anything but that’s how I like it. I’ve had the dark wood furniture for as long as I can remember, the light wood pieces are more recent additions. I have thought about renewing it and going for something more matching but for me I like this and while I still like it I don’t really want to change it. I actually bought all the light wood pieces around the same time from Argos.
