Make Your House A Home

Currently listening to: Just Say Yes by Snow Patrol

Hello dear readers,

A random post today about turning our impersonal flat into our home.

As some of you may know, my boyfriend and I moved into our flat just under three months ago. It's not the nicest place and unfortunately there really aren't many places for me to display my candles, ornaments and photos but I'm trying to make the most of what we have.

With that in mind, I decided to buy some flowers when we were at Tesco two weeks ago. I used to buy flowers quite regularly when we lived in Poland as there was a flower stall at the bottom of our appartment block and the prices were very reasonable (eg five tulips for under £1) but I've never bought flowers in the UK, until now.

First up, I bought these rainbow chrysanthemums. I love the colours although unfortunately the colours aren't genuine, the flowers have been dyed, and you can see the pink dye has transferred onto some of the leaves and it's also turned the water pink.

I also bought two bunches of flowers which were on sale. I can't remember the names of these, I'm afraid. Anyway, one of these bunches was reduced to 89p, and the other was down to 50p. Both have lasted incredibly well considering they were reduced to clear two weeks ago.

Do you like adding little touches like these to your home?
Bye for now,


  1. Those flowers are all so pretty! :)
    I like adding candles, funky lampshades, and stuff like that ;)

  2. Thanks :-) They've really lasted well too which I'm impressed with.
    I love candles too :-)

  3. those are gorgeous! I want some flowers in my room too!!
