Happy New Year lovely readers, I hope you thoroughly enjoyed your festive break and are excited for the new year and all that comes with a new chapter. I, for one, am super excited about 2018. But first, I have spent today putting things in new places which I was very lucky to receive for Christmas around the home and thought you would like to see the new beautiful additions to Number Five.
Ferm Living Plant Box
I have been a very lucky girl this year and my wonderful better half got me this stunning Plant Box from Ferm Living. It's a beautiful muted grey, so simple in it's design but so perfect. I've added it to the hallway as I think it will be such a fantastic place to store those bits and bobs I always bring into the house with me. I've added in my plant present from my little nephew, who is an excellent present buyer at only ten months old, and I'm waiting to see what else around Number Five will fit perfectly in the new plant box.
The Insta-famous slippers, which by the way are so very toasty, were my secret Santa from the kinda brother in law.
Oliver Bonas Oil Diffuser and Marble tray
Last year I spent far too much on candles, just because. So this year I'm trying to recreate a beautifully scented home but with an oil diffuser and selection of essential oils. The great thing with essential oils is you can switch it up based on your mood; want to unwind, sage and vetiver are perfect, need help sleeping, lavender and eucalyptus are wonderful or if you are a feeling a little down orange, rose or Jasmine can help perk up your happiness levels. I love how versatile this little burner is and a few drops of essential oils has the room filled with a beautiful scent. I love the gold and marble, it's a fave in any home accessory for me and looks special whether a candle is burning underneath or not.
Such a beautiful thing needs a beautiful home, and this marble tray again, from Oliver Bonas is the perfect place for it and looks fabulous on the coffee table with all my lovely bits and bobs.
Adding a little more happiness into my life...
At the tail end of 2017 I forgot to look after myself, I was too focused on my day job and it all got the better of me. Lovely friends got me these two lovely journals to make sure I'm keeping a focus on me. I can't wait to start using these and reflecting on the happier, more important things in life.
Here's to an amazing new year for us all, I can't wait to see what the new year brings...
