I'm still here...
So slight hiccup on the technology front, my laptop wouldn't switch on for AGES but miraculously hubby managed to fix it today so this evening deserved a quick catchup post.
I have been SO extremely busy, I now have a 3 year old, can u believe Esra is 3?! It only seems like yesterday I was posting pregnancy pictures. Also to top it off, she started nursery a few days after her birthday so I have been all over the place. It's taken a while for her to settle in as she's quite shy but she now happily waves goodbye knowing that I will come back for her. Also as a side note I am not prepared to answer any nursery/pre school related questions for privacy reasons so please don't ask.
What else? I chopped off all of my hair, if you follow me on Instagram you will already know this but I just wanted a refreshing change, it's something I have wanted to do for a couple of years now and I'm so glad I took the plunge as it's been 3 weeks and I still LOVE it.
How's the new place coming along I hear you ask.... Well it's been crazy, we obviously still haven't finished but things are a lot more settled and everything has a place. I have been on an organising decluttering mission and have donated so much stuff it's unbelievable. But, it's all positive and a clear tidy home means a clear tidy mind. I am loving the minimalist style at the moment and am minimising anything and everything I can.
For my dressing table in the bedroom I went for the Ikea 'Malm' table and 'Alex' drawer unit. I don't have all of the accessories and styling pieces I want so it's bare at the moment and I'm a bit stuck.
I have also decided to use it as my blogging spot and the only way I can get wifi in our bedroom is if I strategically place the laptop on an angle on the edge. I clearly need a wifi booster in my life. I have happily been browsing pinterest whilst I have my tea seeking inspiration for my makeup/blogging table. I am also thinking to remove the glass top from the table as I just don't like the shine it gives, bad idea or not?
I got the 'Kolja' mirror and the light bulb strips to go on either side, but I'm not so sure if I want it like that now. Luckily we haven't had a chance to hang anything up so I'm taking it as a sign that maybe I am destined for a different mirror. This idea is all because we got new grey bedding and I have visions of a rose gold antique but modern mirror hanging. Grey, Rose gold and white and maybe a few hints of peach sounds lovely, what do you think? Shall I use this boring square mirror or get something different?
My makeup is all stored in the drawer, and it's working out nicely. In the tall 'Alex' unit I keep skincare, nail care, body care, jewellery, magazines, travel bags, electricals, hair care and hair tools in that same order top to bottom. It's been a real lifesaver and I would own a few more if I could.
I still need a dressing table chair, I stole one of the dining room chairs for now but I need something nice, not the boring ones from ikea. I would also quite like to hang some shelves so I can place some photos and books. I also need a vase and some splashes of colour!!!
Need, need, need. Want, want, want..... It's never ending.
