Hello my lovelies! Since moving into our flat in September, I've been gradually accumulating more and more homeware in the hope of beautifying our new nest. This past month alone has seen me taking 3 trips to IKEA and I'm actually on a first-name basis with my postman due to the obscene amount I've been ordering off eBay. Usually, I'm quite an eclectic decorator, rarely possessing any refined 'theme' such as vintage or gothic - my rooms are generally just a jumble of randomness. However, as this is our first year free from the suppression of student accommodation, Martin and myself decided to decorate our new abode like real grown-ups!

How precious is this bunny lamp? This absolutely adorable accessory was purchased in Asda of all places! It was love at first sight, as the second I clapped eyes on him, he had hopped his way to my heart. I'm actually tempted to decorate the lampshade with painted pink polkadots to bring a bit more life to him, what do you think? Oh, and did I mention that he was a steal at £20?
This tiny trinket box is perfect for storing your bits and bobs. For fear of any jewellery becoming tangled, I currently use it for hair ties and bobby pins galore. It's no surprise that I purchased this in Paperchase as I loved the charming little detailing of the roof and chimney!
Jars are everywhere at the moment, injecting your home with an ample dosage of shabby chicness. Wishing to stray away from the generic jam jar, I found these gorgeous bubblegum pink ones on eBay. They're very reminiscent of a sweet store and have been filling them with fairy lights and fake flowers, giving them a more magical feel.
I'm still in awe that I snapped up this shabby chic vanity mirror for a mere £4.99 from B&M Bargains! It's an ideal size for any side table as I like to store my nightly moisturiser in the little drawer compartment for convenience.
These tiny tealight candles add an air of elegance to any room. I haven't had the chance to light them just yet, but even when unlit, there is an intoxicating strong scent of roses emitting from them. Of course you've probably seen these beauties floating around the blogosphere, and at £3 a pop from IKEA I couldn't help myself join in the craze.
