Every week I spend so much time looking for some amazing home objects of desire, chairs that make dreams come true, light pendants to glam up any room and accessories that make your house your own unique space.
So I figured I better start getting organised with my ever-growing wish list, and why not register it here and share my top home crushes with you every week?
The one I've picked this week is one that's been in my mind for my bedroom makeover (which will be after the lounge makeover but before the guest bedroom and study makeovers... Seriously this amount of rooms to design is suuuuper exciting - and good at keeping me busy just in case I wasn't already busy enough!).
Anyway, back to #whatiwant this week!
I've got one word for the Jazz Metal Armchair by The French Bedroom Company: GLAMOUR!
It was love at first sight when I saw this retro inspired armchair. The gold makes it so on point and the frame design is so cool, a great statement-making armchair!

13 sleeps till Christmas! This is the most exciting time of the year but also one when we feel drained, longing for that well-deserved Christmas break when we can just chill in your PJs in the best Hygge style you can achieve at home. Whether it's a movie marathon or binge-watching that TV series you've long had on your must-watch list. Whatever your happy-doing-nothing is, it gets even better if you can do it in style.
How is your Christmas shopping going? I hope well, but if not, there is no need to panic just yet! There is just over a week left to shop online and just under two weeks to hit the shops.
If you feel like you are out of ideas for someone special, here's something that might help! Think of their favourite colour... then look for things in that colour palette! Colours bring the best out in people (ok, so does chocolate!), and anyone's favourite colour is certain to lighten up their mood. Check out the blush gift selection I've put together for you!
It's time for our 9th Christmas wish! Don't you find most years that December gets so busy and long because we simply have so much to do, whether it's planning for Christmas parties and hosting, decorating our homes, shopping for gifts and taking the children to lots of Christmas parties (or if you're childless going to lots of parties!)? I also have the added bonus - as lots of people! - of a December birthday at home as my daughter was born between Christmas and New Year which all adds up to a fun and magical but oh-so busy month!
Which is why this next wish will make the fun and magic last for months to come...
I still remember my first digital camera, I was so excited to get it and use it, it had a tiny screen and probably only had a 2 megapixel image sensor. Don't we just love how things have evolved over the last two decades?
However today's wish brings you something just a bit traditional but with lots of fun guaranteed!
