Tree down and presents neatly tucked away, the festivities have quietly slipped away with only the snowcapped rooftops reminding us of the magical spirit of Christmas cheer.
Gazing out of the window across to the snowy South Downs, it looks beautiful and cosying up on the sofa I feel wonderfully contented. Taking in the clean lines of our newly decorated living room and feeling more than pleased with the soft furnishings, I am over the moon with how our first home is coming together.
Feeling fresh and excited about the new year ahead, and wanting this to remain as a continuing theme, I’m feeling inspired by all things pretty! First to capture my eye is Cath Kidston’s Wild Rose Heart Scented Cushions. Already a fan of their sweet smelling companions, the Scented Drawer Liners; these cute hearts will look gorgeous dotted around the home! Secondly Neom’s Luxury Organics Hand Wash with its beautiful scent made a real impression on my hands, leaving them clean soft and feeling totally pretty! The delicate packaging of the bubble-licious Cherry Blossom Shower Gel, a L’Occitane favourite, will sit beautifully in the bathroom, pampering me with prettiness every morning!
An absolute must for any home is the ability to create a calming ambience and I love the Cowshed Knackered Cow Relaxing Room Candle. Its cheeky name adds instant personality whilst the fragrance and soft light helps restore and inspire the mind.
To finish my pretty-feat Annick Goutal’s Mandagor Eau de Toilette will look perfect perched as a statement piece on our retro chest of drawers in the bedroom. All petite reminders of my freshly inspired year ahead!
