Olivia Burton Wonderland Watch

Wearing a watch isn't something that I'm used to - I haven't worn one since I was 12 years old! However, I thought that it was finally time to invest in a decent watch. A lot of people recommended Olivia Burton watches to me so I started browsing them on Topshop's website and instantly fell in love with the various colours and designs. I settled for the Wonderland Black and Gold Watch but it was a tough decision between that and the mink and rose gold watch (which I may have to buy at a later date!). The midi dial is the perfect size for my wrist - I was tempted to buy a big dial watch but I now know that would be far too big for me as I have quite small wrists! I find it very easy to tell the time accurately because the markings on the watch are clear and the size of the strap fits my wrist perfectly. Let me know which Olivia Burton watch is your favourite in the comments below.

Home Decorations

Hello everyone! I thought that I'd jump straight in with a few recent home purchases. But what about an introduction? I'm sure some of you are wondering why I haven't started with telling you a bit about me, well... I wasn't really sure what to say so if you'd like to know who I am before you start reading my post then head on over to the About page. Otherwise, lets get cracking...

I love this pale pink alarm clock! It's something that I've been wanting for ages to replace my old yellow alarm clock (yellow? I know, yuck!) and I finally found one today at my local Debenhams store. The pale pink colour compliments all of the white furniture in my bedroom because it adds a bit of colour but isn't too bright. There's an adjustment wheel on the back of the clock so that I can set an alarm, although I've yet to use it - but I'm sure it isn't too difficult to use. The only issue I may have with it is when I'm trying to get to sleep as the seconds hand makes a noise when it moves, which could prove to be rather annoying!

This picture frame is also from Debenhams - I found it whilst searching for the alarm clock. I love the pretty patterns on the frame and, even though I don't know what photos I'm going to put in it yet, I couldn't resist the urge to buy it anyway.

I've never kept any plants in my room before but a friend pointed these out to me on a recent visit to Ikea and I thought they'd be a great decoration for my room. Each cactus is in a plant pot, which is filled with soil, and that's inside the white pot so when you water them it won't leak out and make a mess of your room! Additionally, they don't have to be watered very often so if I forget to do that (which is highly likely!) they won't die. Unfortunately you can't order these online at the moment but who doesn't like a trip to Ikea anyway?

Let me know in the comments below what home decorations you've bought recently or any that you would like to buy.
