January Favourites 2014

Following on from my December Favourites post, I thought I’d share some things I’ve been loving this month.

The new year has been inspiring me to clear out and makeover areas of our home. At the moment I am working on my craft space! This little rabbit lamp from Tiger has already been placed on my new desk.

Continuing with the Tiger lamps, I also picked up this toadstool desk lamp, too cute.

Candles will probably always feature in my favourites. This scented sewing spool candle was a gift from friends. They are available on NOTHS.

As I’ve been getting my craft space organised, I have also sorted through my yarn stash.

Yarn-Winder

I borrowed this yarn winder from a friend and it’s been pretty relaxing to wind up everything! Somehow I feel like I can justify my stash now….

Still loving Scrabble of course! I’ve started the year super inspired to bring lots of new Scrabble ideas to my Etsy store. The new Scrabble keyrings are already selling!

Obviously I’m no beauty blogger, but I’ve been enjoying these Barry M Nailpolishes ALOT. Glitter nail polishes definitely brighten a dull rainy day and we’ve been getting tons of those in the UK right now.

This Pomegranate Barry M polish is from the Gelly range and I would recommend!

Improving my photography has been a goal of mine for some time now. The A Beautiful Mess Photography Book is helping with inspiration and tips.

Especially the DIY elements of course!

The fact that my Fuji Film Instax Mini camera is pink makes me want to take so many more pictures.

The Scrap booking posts on A Beautiful Mess have also inspired me to continue with my “I Heart Cambridge” one. I’m treating it more like a smash book and sticking in photos, papers and tickets etc.

There’s something about Polaroid photos isn’t there?

This time last year, Cambridge had snow. The weather has been crazy these last few months with freak storms and flooding across a lot of the UK. I haven’t seen snow since I went to Vancouver!

My goal for this month was to get organised and work hard on the craft space makeover. I’m super excited to show you when it’s done. The furniture is almost complete (I’m looking for a comfy crochet chair at the moment) and the decor ideas are coming together. Any excuse to scour Pinterest for craft storage ideas eh?

What have been your favourites this month?

Toodles!

  1. I’ve been on a major organise this month too and feel so much better for it! Although it was partly done to avoid having to do my tax return… anyway, lovely lamps, and excited to see the finished craft space 🙂 x

  2. I need Tiger in my life!!! (Roll on Feb hehe) I have been lusting after and Instax Camera for ages and I have never seen a pink one before. SO jealous! haha.
    I’ve just discovered A Beautiful Mess blog myself while searching for non-destructive ways to renovate a rented house. Such a great source of inspiration 🙂 Good luck with your photography! x

  3. Hi Claire- I picked up one of the colour-changing rabbit lamps in Tiger when I was in Denmark. It’s so cute! I accidentally left him switched on one night and drained the batteries so I need to sort that out! Might have to get a copy of the A Beautiful Mess photo book; I could do with some inspiration myself.
