Easy ways to update your home for spring

With January blues well underway and everywhere still looking bare post Christmas decorations, I thought it would be the perfect time to add a few new bits to breathe some life into my house in time for spring.

Adding some new prints, cushions or a new plant can make a huge difference to your space and the way it feels. I recently ordered this circular shelving unit from Rxhome and thought it was a great way to display some succulents and nick knacks. It would also look great with some tiny wire fairy lights wrapped around.

I also brightened up my fireplace area; which was looking particularly plain; with a yellow patterned vase and this lantern which came with a battery powered candle inside. It adds a really cosy vibe on these horrible dark evenings.

Another update I’m doing throughout the house is filling plain glass vases with fairy lights to brighten up my bathroom and hallway in the evenings since its dark at 4pm! I’ve also ordered this patterned yellow throw to replace the plain navy one on my settee and inject a bit of colour into the room.

Perfume Dupe – Next Rouge Absolue and Giorgio Armani Si

I was recently in Next testing out some of their perfumes and couldn’t believe it when I smelled the Rouge Absolue; it’s a definite dupe for Si by Giorgio Armani.

Si has been one of my favourite perfumes for years however at £99 for 100ml it’s definitely used sparingly; Rouge Absolue is a lot more affordable at £8 for 30ml.

I’ve been wearing it everyday since and can’t believe how long it lasts on my skin, I will definitely be going back for a bigger bottle.


Have any of you found any perfume dupes?
