The builders are almost out and soon we can start decorating our loft. I am beyond excited. And with the skylight, velux and large window at the back I can’t wait to fill the airy space with greenery. I have never been a good plant person, which is why I am thrilled with the current trend of cacti, succulents and plants of the green yet dry variety. Plus, they are selling them in Ikea – which you’re far more likely to spot me in than a garden centre.

It’s a great way to bring the outside in, especially with cramped London living. We actually don’t have a garden (or even a balcony!) so it’s the closest thing to a garden we’re getting right now. I’ve also just bought this Terrarium from Urban Outfitters – I was excited to find something affordable (I’d previously been looking at The Urban Botanist – amazing but way out of my league) it’ll go with my copper edged trinket box from H&M Home…

And this coming weekend? Well it’s my birthday and we are taking some time out in London seeing new sights (and staying at The Ace Hotel – we got a great deal booking early and staying on a Sunday night – I can’t wait!).
