The warm weather here up North has made me realise how very impractical the clothes in my wardrobe are. It's no secret that I much prefer Autumn over the other three but when you are faced with temperatures up 24C in your home city and are in a puzzle over what to wear that's when you know you need to go shopping! Above I have listed a few pieces of clothing I have my eye on and some I have already purchased. I think it's important to purchase clothes that could be worn throughout the year where possible and hopefully, some of the items I have listed above will help me meet that goal.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post, Summer is almost over but for now lets make the most of it :)

Wishlist: Cushion Galore

I've been doing up a few rooms in the house recently, specifically transitioning the rooms from the Autumn/Winter decor to give it a more Spring/Summer type of feel. This obviously means brighter colours or even pastels - something a little more vibrant. The easiest way to transition rooms into the next season, I feel, is by upgrading your cushions. This small change can bring around such a huge difference to any room, be it the lounge or even the bedroom. I thought I would share a few of my picks today...

I'm loving this bright yellow cushion, it features a quarter foil print and would make such a huge difference to a room, it's from Yorkshire Linen Co's linen cushions collection and is so inexpensive. I have one very similar in the office and it looks great against my white furniture, really brightens up the area. Bright colours are really eye catching, but cushions with one-liners are too. This cushion from Etsy is dark in colour but the bright white slogan is apt for the current season! The next two cushions are from H&M, they have such an amazing range of homeware and the items are so inexpensive. I love these geometric cushions! My fifth pick is a lot pricier than the others but you totally get what you pay for. The geometric print is on another level, and the blue and peach shade blend together perfectly - it's from Urban Outfitters. My last pick is a must have check cushion cover from Dunelm, this light blue shade would look perfect with white decor.

Hope you enjoyed this post - I included a few different stores just to give you some variety. In the Spring and Summer, I always go with brighter cushions in general. Geometric patterns seem to have carried through to this season which is nice to see so that too is a great way to update your rooms!

Let me know what you think? Do you update your decor often? I probably do it excessively! 

Fudge Urban Hair picks


I've recently become boring in terms of using the same few products for my hair just because I know they work and I didn't really want to try anything new in case it wasn't as good. I was so glad though to come across the Fudge Urban brand. I thought I would review a few of the items I got...
