Fashion: Anna Sui Exhibition

I realised the other day at work that I have one week left in London before I head to the big apple off on my holidays. With moving house, starting a new job and doing up our new pad, I've sidelined museum fashion exhibitions in London that I've been wanting to go to. With the turn of the season of shows now upon us, I've literally got a week to see all the art gallery and museum exhibitions that I wast to see before they all close.

So after work on Thursday night I walked over Tower Bridge to The Fashion and Textiles Museum show of 'Anna Sui' I'll admit, I've never actually been to The Fashion & Textile museum (Bad fashion student, I know!) and now I've been I'm not sure why, it's supper close to London Bridge and in a sweet spot for little shops and independent cafes.

So here are some of the photos I took whilst at the Anna Sui Fashion exhibition, If you're able to go, go it's on until 1st October so you've got a couple of weeks left, no need to book, just rock up and students get in for £6 which is a bargain! All details can be found here 'Fashion & Textile Museum Website.

Homeware: New Plant Friends!

If you read my previous post 'How not to spend a million pound in Ikea' you'll know I'm currently on a homeware crusade in an effort to make my new house a home.  We've lived back in London for about two months now, unpacked all of our things but aren't yet 100% there with furniture or home furnishings.

So off to Ikea we went and £212 later, we came home with some much needed shelves, curtain poles, and plants amongst other boring, adulating / household essentials. Ahh, Adult life.

I'm a big fan of greenery, Adam (My boyfriend) isn't quite as keen. He's currently claiming that the flat is like a jungle, with plants and greenery among our books, bedsides and windowsills.

Homeware: How Not Spend A Million Pounds In Ikea

Hey all!

I love Ikea. I mean, who doesn't? And now I actually have my own flat I'm even more 'pro Ikea' the minimalist aesthetic, the matte finished and of course, the price have all got me sold.

The only downside to my ikea thirst is the fact that I live in Zone 2. To get to IKEA would take me an hour and a half and I'm pretty sure that during that time I'd kill my other half (Hi Addie!) in a car park in Croydon after taking a wrong turn thanks to google maps. Another crushing reality is that we don't have a car, so we would have to fork our for an uber or a van to get all those overgrown plants, veggie Swedish meatballs and undeniable homeware bargains back to base camp.

So with my Dad coming to stay next weekend we've roped him in to drive us to Ikea for those few final bits and bobs that will make our house our home.

So here are my tips for not spending a million pounds that you don't have, on stuff you don't need from Ikea and also how not to kill your other half in a car park in Croydon.
