A Space of My Own

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely week. I thought I'd post a quick little home post today. I recently posted about my new dressing table on Instagram, and a lot of you were interested in it, so I thought a post with links and information would be useful for some of you. I'll write a more in depth post at some point, but I thought a quick little post might be fun.

I recently redecorated my bedroom and this is the almost finished product. I still need to sort of my bookcases (I need to either stain them or paint them) and I need to sort out my carpet. I am in love with my new furniture though.

Dressing table: Dunelm
Cauldron candle: Luna's Locket
'Witch' teacup: Thirteen Curiosities 
Lipstick holder: eBay
Brush holder: Dunelm. I bought this in store and I can't seem to find it online!
Hat cross stitch: Coven of Stitches 

I'm really happy with it. I have always wanted a dressing table but I had to have a desk for my studies. This feels so much nicer! I love being able to sit down to do my make up (I sat on the floor previously so this is certainly an upgrade) and I think my bedroom is so much more appealing now.

I hope this helps some of you who were curious! I'll definitely write a full home post with some more detailed pictures. I also have a bedside table which matches the vanity. I'm so pleased with my furniture. The dressing table holds a surprising amount and feels sturdy. My room feels so much more elegant now. I love curling up in here when I arrive home from work.

I hope you are all having a lovely week. I'm going away for Easter on Friday, so I might be a little quiet online. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter if you celebrate!

It's finally March! I have always loved winter but I am ready for Spring. I'm looking forward to light evenings and sunshine.

I thought I would post a little update for February, albeit late. It has been quite some time since I posted a monthly update. January was rather uneventful but I have a few pictures to post for February.

Overall, February was slow but not too bad. January is my least favourite month so I'm always pleased when it is over. One of my favourite days in February was my visit to Newstead Abbey. We walked around the house but only spent a few minutes in the grounds because it was freezing! I would like to go back again in summer. I haven't shared many pictures because I've posted about Newstead Abbey twice now (here and here) and I didn't want to repeat too many pictures!

It was a lovely day. Newstead Abbey is one of my favourite places and I always enjoying visiting. I would like to go back and explore the gardens again.

Of course, most of my day trips were actually dog walks. I love walking Bree. She gives me a reason to get outside when I would rather be curled up in bed, and I like the exercise.


I'm also hoping to write more blog posts now March is here. I always feel a little more inspired when spring arrives. I did write a review of the Crimson Peak novelisation for Altvenger Magazine, which you can read here if you are interested!

I apologise for how sparse this update is. I'm hoping to have more review posted soon, and I might start writing some short reviews. I'm also hoping to organise more day trips once the weather picks up. I'm definitely excited for spring!

Did you do anything nice in February?
