Home Updates To Do This Weekend.
I think there comes a point in your twenties where you use your weekends wisely, and I definitely try my hardest to make the most of the two days I have away from my desk!
Although I still haven’t toned down my social life (I have at least swapped night clubs for late night, cocktail filled dinners!), I usually reserve a day for catching up on life admin!
I spend a few hours tidying up my house – basically punishment for the night before – and rearranging a little, I think rearranging your rooms is a free way of getting a whole new look! While I’m at it, I usually try a few little updates too…
Arrange Your Kitchen Worktops
I know this isn’t true for everyone, but our kitchen is where we spend a lot of time! The window seat and coffee machine combo mean we often spend entire mornings catching up over endless cups of flat whites, made by the barista in the house (aka not me, I suck).
Head to H&M or TK MAXX and pick up some marble/wood mix chopping boards, a jar of Pink Himalayan salt and some cute pinch pots and get to work. I also recommend hitting up Anthro for brass measuring cups and adorable trivets.
Style Your Coffee Table
Our coffee table used to be a bit, er, wild… to say the least. It was cluttered with magazines, candles, remotes and hand creams – that was until one fine day I had enough and decided to give it a new lease of life.
I stacked magazines neatly below, and used coffee table books to add height on top. Then I styled the candles and other bits and bobs on top. Easy peasy!
Add Some Blooms In To The Mix
I’m a huge fan of fresh flowers, I usually use the Bloom & Wild App (I guess this is UK only, but I’m sure your city will have something similar). They’re pretty good with updating their bouquets regularly and they come in a few days and last aaages.
Failing that, nip to your local florist and buy a bunch of eucalyptus! A lot cheaper than an entire bouquet and so pretty and freshly scented.
A few small changes and your home will feel like new. Will you be trying these?
