Home Decor – Spring 2017

Hello lovlies,

Ever since we’ve moved into our new apartment I have taken such an interest into home decor. With Spring on it’s way, I thought there would be no better way to welcome it than to do a blog post on some dream products that I dream to add to my living area. All the items I have written about below are from Arhaus.com – check out their living room page, it’s guarantee to inspire you – https://www.arhaus.com/furniture/living-room-furniture/?icn=main-living&ici=nav-living

From my wardrobe full of clothes to my make up looks, I love monochrome and I think that when it comes to home decor, monochrome looks very classy and on trend. However, I have an incredibly bubbly personality and I like that to reflect in my home decor for when my friends and family come over. See below for my top picks from Arhaus.com, following my dream of monochrome, with pops of colour.

I think this sofa is my favourite product I’ve added to this post. Not only is it the most gorgeous peachy pink colour – it’s also a crushed velvet material and that texture really adds something extra to the room.

Another trend that I am loving is metals. Any metal from copper to gold, however it is important that you stick to one metal in a room, if you have silver, copper and gold all in one room it can look really strange. This table is perfect, it fits in so nice with the sofa and brings a touch of contemporary to the room.

I believe that what really makes a house a home, is wall art. Now these won’t be to everyones taste however I have completely fallen in love with these gorgeous art pieces. They really mix in well with the monochrome trend, yet are just mesmerising to look at.

Finally – this candle is so up my street, I have a very similar ornament to this at home and it is a piece that everyone comments on when they walk through the door, it is such a unique piece and adds a bit of grunge to the decor.

What I Got For Christmas 2016

Hello lovlies,

I cannot believe that Christmas was already 2 weeks ago, I can tell this year is going to go just as fast as 2016. Anyway, I love reading posts on what people got for Christmas as it gives me inspiration on what to buy other people for any upcoming birthdays or special occasions. A lot of the items I was bought for Christmas have either been put away or eaten so I have just captured the presents that I had around.

First of all is what I got from Jake. He spoilt me rotten again this year, as he always does. Without going into massive amounts of detail the present’s that he bought me are below. The most special one being the tattoo voucher, my favourite tattoo artist in Norwich works at ‘Ink Addiction’ and he had remembered the times that I’d mentioned how I’d love her to do my first tattoo.

Below were the two main presents from my parents. It makes me laugh when I think back to Christmas day and how excited I was when I opened these presents, they are such Adult things to get excited over but they are 100% the best items we could have asked for and they have absolutely transformed our apartment.

I had to show you guys this candy sushi, it was from Jake’s Nan and Grandad and I just thought it was awesome!

I was incredibly lucky this Christmas and I never take for granted how generous my friends and family are.

Let me know what you got for Christmas!

An explanation and my new year goals…

Hello loves,

So 3 months ago I composed a post saying how I was back and would stop being slack and just concentrate on uploading my blog posts once a week etc. Well you guessed it, shit hit the fan again and unfortunately the end part of my year wasn’t a great one.

Last night I laid in bed chatting with my fiancé and realised how much I missed writing blog posts and also reading blogs. It gave me a real hobby and was giving me a chance to sit down, even for 20 minutes, and have some real me time and just get lost into reviewing a product or reading a blog post about something I am really interested in. So I’ve decided that I really want to concentrate on my blog this year and get it out to as many people as possible. I’m giving it a real makeover and I hope the current followers I have can support me in getting up and running again.

I’m not a massive one for new years resolution as I am a big believer that you shouldn’t wait for one single day of the year to pledge the ‘new year, new me’ idea, however this year I have given myself a few points to focus on and here they are:

  • Don’t get sucked into the drama/gossip and avoid anyone giving off them negative vibes
  • Don’t rely on anyone to make yourself happy – you’re the only one that can look after yourself properly
  • Get the decor sorted in our new apartment!! (WHY IS ALL THE HOMEWARE I LIKE SOO EXPENSIVE?!)
  • Start putting money away to organise holidays and weekends away

I’d love to hear what goals you’ve given yourself this year!

Thanks for reading and I promise I won’t be this shit again,

Tori Moore xoxo
