Weekend Treats - Ikea


Today we did one of my favourite things. We went to Ikea. Its rather pathetic really but I get really excited over Ikea. I'm not quite sure what it is about the place but I just love it there! I bought myself a few gorgeous little treats for my bedroom and I thought I'd share the Ikea love.


I bought a large glass vase and two sets of Star Fairy lights. I'm going to put one set of the lights in the vase and one around my bed or dressing table mirror, I havnt quite decided yet. What do you think? The star lights are actually battery powered which is good in one way, as theres no worrying about where to plug them in and ruining "the look," and bad because of the constant battery replacements. I have however devised a cunning plan. I'm going to buy some rechargeable batteries to remedy this minor issue :)


I also bought a set of large tealight candles, spiced apple and cinnamon of course, and with it I bought two gorgeous little tealight holders. They are a beautiful deep pink/purple shade and were an absolute steal at £1.79. The entire lot of goodies cost me less than £20 and I now have even more wonderful additions to make my bedroom even more of a relaxing safe haven to escape to in the winter.


Do you love candles, trinkets, and ornaments as much as me?

  2. I also have these star lights, I have red ones which you don't plug in and white ones which you do. They are both exactly the same and from Ikea. You will be happy to know that the battery doesn't run out to quickly.

  20. I also ADORE IKEA!!! My hubby and I make a day of it! I could spend the entire day in there and then after have a nice lunch topped off with that yummy ice cream cone they have for a $1! Living in Manhattan the closest IKEA is in Brooklyn so we have to take a fairy there, which is all really really lovely! I love the lights! Lovely pick.

  25. These are great! I love that you don't have to bother to plug them in... though it is always a dangerous proposition letting me loose in IKEA :)

    I am LOVING candles from Bath and Body Works right now, especially the 3 wick ones in Leaves and Creamy Pumpkin. So amazing, definitely worth checking out - especially since they usually have deals on.
