Sunday Spotlight - 13th July 2014

In my life this week…

New bed

This week my health seems to be having a real wobble. The biggest problems are my legs, which are so painful and restless that I don’t know what to do with myself, and the fact that I’m so exhausted I keep falling asleep. It’s making things like blogging rather difficult because I can’t sit and concentrate on writing my posts, so I will apologist now if I can’t post as much as I normally do. Something positive that happened this week was that my new bed has finally been put together. I’ve wanted a double bed for ages and love how pretty and princess-like this one is! This picture shows my bed before we got the double mattress and duvet, but you get the idea.

Tasty new drinks

Is it just me or has it been really muggy and horrible this week? I love the sunshine, but when it’s muggy and sticky I find myself feeling incredibly uncomfortable. That’s why I’ve been looking for any way I can to cool down a bit, and I came across this range of cool drinks. This coconut and lime one is so delicate and summery – it’s perfect for an afternoon tipple if you want to avoid alcohol. They also do Raspberry Lemonade, which is absolutely delicious! I think there’s a few more in the range that I’m yet to try, but if they’re as good as these ones then it will be hard to decide which to try next!


I had a little trip to Dunelm yesterday with my Dad and, despite my legs really playing up, managed to pick up a nice bedside cabinet. I also treated myself to a couple of cushions to go on my bed and I think they look great against the plain white background of the duvet cover. I love having lots of different pretty cushions across my bed – it makes it look even more comfy and inviting and I could quite easily leap on and star fish in the middle!

What has grabbed your attention this week? I love hearing about people’s new discoveries and you may end up sharing something that makes it onto my list next week!


  1. Jenny your bedroom is gorgeous!! And your new bed looks fit for a princess �� I love the one wall with flower wallpaper on, and all the others just painted, it looks so cute. My bedroom's the same but in chocolate and turquoise :) Really hope things pick up for you soon lovely, will be thinking of you xxx (@katiesfx on Instagram)

    1. Thank you Katie - it's funny as last night when I got into bed I suddenly felt like I was in a princess bed! Your room sounds lovely too sweetie :) xx

  2. Haha is that Jeremy Kyle on the tv in the background? ;) I love your room, it's so pretty and girly! I've had a double bed since I was about nineteen and I'm not sure how I'd sleep in a single now, I like to stretch out too much in my sleep!
