Things I Love Thursday (Belated Post)

So it appears my Blogger had a problem on Thursday night and decided not to publish the post I had lined up! So here it is a couple of days later!

Forever 21

For those of you who are American, this probably isn't a big deal for you, but as an English girl I was so excited when I found this shop in San Francisco!
It reminded me a lot of H&M but a fraction of the price! I was so shocked to see how cheap everything was! Naturally, I could have bought pretty much everything back with me but I was good and only bought a pair of leggings, 2 jumpers, and a lightweight jacket.

Since returning home I've been eyeing up their website, and am so happy that they deliver to the UK. I can see my wardrobe being full of their stuff in the future!

Vintage Furniture & Quirky Household Items

As very briefly mentioned in one of my last posts I am indeed moving at the end of the month. My husbands job has been moved to London, so in an attempt at saving some pennies we're moving in order to be only 40 mins away from the capital. We've found a cute 2 bed house to rent in a quiet estate (BIG change from where we are now), so with a new house comes new furniture to fill it with!

We both have very strong opinions when it comes to furnishings, so it's always a challenge trying to agree on things. But we do have a mutual admiration & respect for vintage designs. 

We've been eyeing these beauties up on Ebay.

The second one may look a little plain, but we're not afraid of painting furniture or changing things to suit our style. 

We're also after some quirky bookends for our collection, and came across these which I love!

How cute are the last two!?

Etsy is also a good place to look if you're after something unique for your home.




So right now my life is a little hectic still, and I'm really hoping I'll find the time to get some sewing in before we have to pack everything up (roughly 3 weeks till we move) as I haven't sewn since Sept!
If not, as i'll have a room dedicated to it in our new house I can at least share with you my plans for the room, and what will be on my machine next!
