A peek inside my room #1


Operation Tidy is going well but I still have a long way to go before I achieve my dream bedroom as fantasised about here. As Operation Tidy progresses, I will gradually be revealing parts of my room so you have more of an insight into how I live and where I blog from. My first room related post is also a little bit of a haul post based on two purchases I made recently. The first being this rather gorgeous circular plate:

TK Maxx - £9.99

I love nothing more than a good candle, but candle wax can be a devilish little sod. I’d been searching high and low for something to rest my candles on and TK Maxx came to the rescue. £9.99 was nothing for such a generously sized plate. Plus with all the blues, swirls and glitter, it was by far the prettiest design I’d seen. The chest at the foot of my bed is now designated as “candle area” and I’ve tried to keep things quite minimal with just this plate, the remains of my Valentine’s flowers and my leftover Yankee Candle mango tea lights:


My second mission of late was to find some new bedding as I’d become bored of purple. And what happened? I find bedding on the one day I wasn’t actively looking for it!

 Asda - £11 (no joke!)

The mocha coloured print almost looks gold when viewed in a certain light. And as and when I fancy a change, I can flip the pillow cases and peel the duvet back to reveal the reverse side:


So last weekend, as well as enjoying my born again bed with candles flickering in the background, I also made that cake I spoke of. But I improvised and used chocolate frosting instead of cream cheese:


Also, I discovered that I may need to go to Porridge Eaters Anonymous:

  1. I love your candle plate, the colours and all the swirls remind me of a galaxy. The bedding is beautiful too. I have never been a porridge fan, I just can't get past the texture of it, yuck

    1. I've never liked porridge either - I totally get what you mean! I've only started eating it recently as it keeps me warm in the mornings and fills me up stopping me from snacking on so much crap late morning sort of time! x x
