Favourites: July Edition

For my July favourites I want to focus on my favourite household objects.  More specifically my favourite objects in my favourite room.


We have recently moved house and are working our way through the rooms getting them just the way we like them.  The first room was my dressing room / office, I might do a post on that another time.  We are just putting the final touches to the living room, this is the room that’s quickly become my favourite.

We don’t have a TV (we watch a lot of Netflix and DVDs) so we normally just load whatever we want to watch up on a laptop.  Our living room is very minimal and I love that your eye isn’t drawn to a massive black rectangle as soon as you step in.

For our anniversary we bought ourselves a new radio/CD player/Bluetooth speaker system.  We are in love with it, it looks really sleek and a bit retro and is super simple to use and set up.  The sound quality is great and it comes with a whole load of features like an alarm and a sleep timer that we’ve not really looked into yet.

We have a lot of green in our lives. Hubby’s parents recently adopted our cats and since then we have felt a real lack of life in the house – plants are the next best thing to pets I think. They lift your mood and they can be interesting to watch grow and change.  They will fill the four legged gap until we are ready to welcome a new fur baby into our lives.

I’m a knitter, and, as such, I make many many blankets, cushions and sometimes foot stools!  Knitted fabric is a wonderful texture and when it’s a nice colourful pattern it can be a real feature in your room, we have a table/basket (we got ours from IKEA) that holds all our blankets when it’s too hot for them.

Everyone loves a candle, right? I particularly like The White Company for candles. At the moment we have Ocean Tide.

We are planning to add a chair and a coffee table to this room and then it’s done done done!

What’s your favourite room and why? Let me know down below!

 

Tea Collection

I’m a BIG fan of tea.  It’s the first thing I drink in the morning and we often have a cup of decaf before we go to bed.

What better way to enjoy your favourite drink than with your favourite mug!  I’ve got different mugs depending on which tea I fancy or what time of day it is.  For example I’ve got a tin mug with owls on that I only ever use for herbal teas that I’m taking to bed.  My ‘EH?’ mug only ever has standard Yorkshire Tea with soya.  My fox mug however has found special favour and gets used at all hours and for all hot drinks, even coffee.

 

At the moment I’m particularly enjoying mint teas.  Especially the Buttermint tea from Twinnings.  I’ve never taken to fruit teas and I’ve only just started to enjoy green tea.

I love to run myself a hot bath and just soak away any stresses with a cup of mint green tea.

Tweet me pictures of your favourite mug & tea combinations! If you want to see more of my tea drinking habbits then you can follow me on snapchat too! (beccymundy)

Mega Haul!

Day three and four of my advent calendar were very exciting, another classic Shea Body Butter and also an eye liner from The Body Shops makeup range.  I’ve never used any of their makeup so I’ll be giving a little review of that soon.

I’ve been collecting together enough stuff for a big haul video which you can see over on my YouTube channel or watch below.  I’ve also been snapping a little on my snapchat so go follow me there! (beccymundy)
