Reading Nook Wish List

When chaiselongue.co.uk contacted me about the blogger competition they're holding, I was immediately intrigued as since my recent move I've been in home decor mode. I had the idea to have a neutral little reading nook that smells lovely where you can sit and shut out the world for a while. Here are my picks:

Fabrice Cosy Armchair: £345
Strawberry Buttercream Yankee Candle: £19.99
Biscuit cushions (I love the custard cream and party ring): £22 each
Chateau 2 Drawer Hall Table: £326
Bird Table Lamp: £78
Disney Wonder Linen Spray: £8
Wall Canvas: £20

If you feel like entering the blogger competition, here's the details.

My Graduation

 Last week I graduated from my 4 year teaching degree, it was a really nice day despite it being super hot in the gowns.
We took lots of group photos after the ceremony including many attempts at the 'throwing the mortarboard' photo and also photos of us looking silly with our hoods up!
Afterwards my parents took me to a restaurant for a Bellini and a lovely dinner.

I can't thank my friends and family enough for supporting me through the ups and downs of my degree and I couldn't have done it without them. On to the next challenge, my NQT year!
