Interior Wishlist

Following on from my earlier post, I have also been doing a litttttle bit of Internet window shopping.

Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy with the way the interior is looking at the minute - we've finally got everything how we want it. But that never stops us from looking, does it?!

Below you can see my wishlist, featuring some amazing things from H&M home and Zara Home, taking styling tips from the ever-so-chic Emblem Furniture, who have - in my opinion - some of the most beautiful show homes out there.

Let me know what you think!

Interior Updates

It's been a long time since I last updated with an interior post, I was doing some Pinterest browsing recently, and the festive decor got me in the mood to share some of my Christmassy home updates.

I've been obsessing over gigantic red doors, floor-to-ceiling uPVC windows dusted with snow and wreaths covered in holly and berries. Buuuuut, living on a boat, these are some things are just pretty impossible for me to achieve!

Anyway...

We put our tree up last week, and we're very happy with the outcome:

 

We opted for reds and golds because, well, that's just the festive 'norm' isn't it?!

My Mum bought us some gorgeous decorations in the shape of a boot, which look the same as the boot we have drawn on the side of the boat. So naturally, these went up straight away!


Whilst buying my tree, I also caught sight of these amazing bright red poinsettias. I think they look extremely festive, and it's brightened up the room.

Mine was a mere British pound from B&Q. Bargain!


Last but not least - an absolute 'must have' interior update for the festive season is 'Christmas' scented candles.

Rob bought me 'Christmas Memories' by Yankee Candles last year and I'm absolutely obsessed with the smell. It has hints of cinnamon and spices, and makes you feel nostalgic for Christmas baking and, well, Christmas Memories!

My other two favourites are a 'fir tree' scented candle from Homebase, and a 'Mulberry' scented one. I'm not entirely sure where I got this, but I have a feeling it was Wilkinsons.

How have you updated your home for Christmas?

What to Wear: Business Meeting / Job Interview

Making the right impression at job interviews or business meetings can be hard - I'm always torn between wanting to pull out all the stops and playing it cool.

What's most important is that you feel comfortable - there's nothing worse than feeling as though you're in someone else's clothes, as it can effect your ability to perform. You want to be relaxed, because if your audience thinks you're calm, it'll make them warm to you even more.

Here you can see some of my favourite pieces this season that can be incorporated into your work wardrobe:
