For the love of Ikea

Yes that's right i braved Ikea today and actually it was quite pleasant. No rowing couples, no tantruming children, no trolley bashers. It was quiet and i managed to get loads of bits without spending a small fortune. I know alot of people really dislike Ikea and i wouldn't go and buy everything there as i like a bit of variety in my life but you can pick some fab bits up and the kids section is amazing. I went with my mum and we spent ages looking at all the random little bits that the men in our life would just find boring.
So i wore
Green polka dot dress-Primark from an age ago(found in the garage)
Pearl headband-Primark
Pearl initial bracelet-Topshop
Studded flat sandals-Primark
It never fails to amaze me how things can look so much more interesting when named in Swedish. I picked up some sweets
and this Cider type drink for Phil.
My mum got some amazing cheese and Dime bars of course!!
Happy Friday everyone! I'm going back to packing yet more clothes and books xx

  6. I like Ikea in small doses. We only ever go probably 2 trips a year. The last thing I got from there was our cat basket!
