Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas everyone!

One of the things I love most about this holiday is getting to spend time with family, relaxing, resting, eating and being off work. One of my favourite ways to wind down is to light some scented candles.

At work we did Secret Santa. I only started this new job a month ago and the company is quite big, so it did feel a little impersonal. I’m still a newbie and I only know a handful of people, but that was tackled by filling out wish lists. Our budget was £10. Unfortunately, we didn’t find out who gave us our gifts, but that was alright.

I asked for scented candles, a girly mug or nail polish, and my Secret Santa got me scented candles, which I was delighted with. I wasn’t expecting them to be this nice.

They came in a set of three from Anthropologie (I know because it said so on the gift bag haha), and smelt of pine needle and pine nuts. It’s such a lovely Christmasy scent. I love the gold chrome finish and the white and gold marble cardboard stand that they were presented in. I’ve left them like that on my window sill. When I light them up, I close the curtains, but leave them open enough for the candles to show.

Have a wonderful holiday everyone. Enjoy these moments with your loved ones and make the most of it. I will be going to church this morning, and then I’ll be helping my mother-in-law cook Christmas lunch/dinner. I’ll be spending today and tomorrow with the in-laws and on Wednesday, Julious and I will be heading to Luton to see my mum and stepdad. I’m looking forward to it!

How are you spending the holidays?

My Dream Dressing Room

Every girl dreams of having a room just for getting ready in the morning. It would make the whole process of choosing your outfit that much more fun.

My dream dressing room would be based on neutral tones. When my hubby and I buy our first home, this is also how I want it to be decorated. I think neutral tones—beiges, creams and whites—create a warm, comfortable and inviting atmosphere.

I’d have a shaggy carpet so that I could walk about barefoot in comfort. Nothing feels better than carpet underneath your feet. The ottoman would be for when I need to put on my shoes, and the chaise lounge would be for relaxing, or seating for when guests come over.

I’d have to have a pretty dressing table so that I can do my make-up in the same room.

Other necessary items include: Wardrobes that cover an entire wall — obviously because a girl can never have too many clothes. Check. Shoe shelves to store all of my shoes. Check. A rectangle floor length mirror in the corner. The best kind, for those full length selfies, but also so that I can inspect myself before leaving the house. Double check. And lastly, a pretty chandelier to light up the room. Lighting is a must in a dressing room.

My dream dressing room is simple and straightforward. I’m not one for fancy, showy things, and have always appreciated functionality.

Arhaus have all of your furniture needs. Check them out on Instagram.

If you had the chance to have your very own dream dressing room, what would it look like?
