Little Blue Dog

The sweetest little blue dog I've ever seen

Do you like Ikea?

Until I moved to Edinburgh, I had never been to one of their shops. Now, though, I really do enjoy wandering around through the expansive showrooms, getting inspired by items that are not too far out of reach: the affordableness of Ikea is definitely one of the best qualities for me. We've only bought one flatpack item so far (a bookcase) but it was such a good price and so easy to assemble.
 
We went today on our day off together: my boyfriend had never been there before, so we strolled around imagining our future home, and finished off the trip with Swedish meatballs (because you have to really, don't you?!).

I also stocked up on scented candles. They are so cheap and smell wonderful: not too artificial. And as our window is as good as boarded up (it is so old that the wind pretty much just blows straight through all the gaping holes) our stuffy room definitely benefits from the regular lighting of scented candles!
 

Such a pretty water glass: and only 50 pence!
Fruity, berry candles: They make our room smell wonderful. The glass pots are recycled from Gu desserts we've had!

Caramel laces and sour cream and onion crisps
