I'm enjoying picking up bits and pieces for my room at halls, above are a few of my favourite picks. I'm not allowed candles in my room instead I opted for a room diffuser from h&m, which smells so fresh and floral. I've gathered all my kitchen pieces from Ikea, all very minimal and white. Lastly a copper lampshade (again Ikea) and an old lamp, I've put the two together as I love the contrasting metals.
Next on my list is to stock up on stationary!
Although there are a lot more lists to write, I have found some lovely places to keep myself busy (for the first month at least).
A favourite of mine being the White Cube Gallery, I had known about the gallery previously but didn't realise there are three of them in London! Hoxton Square gallery is a short walk from where I'll be living, Duke street I could combine with a not-so impromptu shopping trip, and the Bermondsey gallery will have to be visited as well, just to round it up (photo above).
I've found a few cafes, bars and galleries, all in walking distance. The Book Club being at the top of my list, but if you know of any places in the Shoreditch/ Hoxton area please do let me know!
Also I've included a photo of my favourite birthday card. Botticelli, this painting being one of my all time favourite pieces of art. Not entirely sure why as I'm much more of a Renaissance sculpture kinda girl..
Since it's my birthday in a couple weeks I've been on the lookout for a birthday present, I'm finding it really difficult to pick something I'd like. Especially after finding these few pieces it's proving ever harder to make a definitive choice!
I bought this coat at the beginning of summer and it seemed a bit silly posting about it then, but now I've started to see glimpses of a/w fashion more so I've jumped at the chance to put it on here!
It's been nicknamed the London coat by my mumma as it's a city coat and was bought primarily for my move to London (4 weeks!).
