Things I Love Thursday // A Very Kitsch Shed

There is a lot to love this week, first and foremost, is my shed… It is now (almost) fully decorated and I am currently sat in my pink gingham fireside armchair with puggy on my lap. Surrounded with white wooden walls and kitch pastel teal and pink canvasses up and pink rose fairy lights twinkling around me… I even picked up a teak fold down table from a junk furniture shop and have half covered it in pink floral sticky back plastic (I didn’t work out how much I needed so I need to go and get somemore and hope that they have the same pattern!) This is finally my perfect work area! There’s still lots I want to do with it such as have a bit more furniture, some shelving or something to store a few bits and pieces. I need a floor lamp for working in to the evening and possibly a heater for the colder winter months that feel like they are closing in. Aaand there is a few finishing touches to made to the paint work around the doors and windows, but I was so eager to get in here, I just couldn’t wait to start work any longer! I think it may even be a space that Brad and I can sit of an evening enjoying the view, with some dinner and wine!

Things I Love Thursday

Decorating my shed inside and out, my office is finally in use.

 Of course, launching my new Mermaid Gossip website and getting some great feedback.

 Covering my fireside armchair myself, saving £400 if I had have got someone else to do it, it is by no means perfect but it will do me and my shed.

 Discovering this Wifi Extender existed to allow me to work at the end of the garden with no trouble with a dropping internet connection.

 Getting back in to my jeans, this actually happened last week but I think I forgot to mention it, I am officially a stone lighter than I was in January! Wuhoo! Go me!

 Spending time catching up with Grandma over the weekend

 Being back in Bournemouth and realising how much I miss the beach, especially now I have Puggy, we went for at least four beach walks over Saturday and Sunday to make the most of it!

 Spending last night with Brad in the shed, eating a lovely meal that he cooked, and making 90s nostalgic playlists on Spotify and blasting music out of the Basscase until midnight last night! So much fun.

Fun Stuff

 I love all the treasures that The Dainty Squid has collected from the beach, just makes me wish I was still living near the beach even more!

 All the celebs are doing the #ALSIceBucketChallenge and donating money to a great cause, but this one Katy Perry did is brilliant!

 HAHAHA! These perfectly timed doggy photos are just brilliant!

 How cute is Megan’s Blogstock festival outfit – I hope there will be a round two of this festival so I can go next year!

 Did you see my post yesterday featuring my new Mermaid nails? – Here’s some more cute nail designs.

 Eeeeek and these space cat designs are too cute for words!

 I really want to try some of these awesome colour contact lenses for some of my outfit posts in the future.

 I am huge fan of doing and making things for free or almost free, this is such a great way to save £s on a new bed!
