Finishing touches with home treats UK

Alternative Style Blogger Foxxtailz
I think I've harped on enough on this little blog of mine how I wished I was a home owner and how renting a property leaves you a little bit restricted when it comes to how you want to decorate your home. In a bid to make my current rented property, I'm always on the look out for home ''bits'' to place around my home, it's an easy solution to make your house feel a bit more homely in a none permanent way. I'm also a massive fan of stuff, [not in like a hoarder way, you won't seem me on hoarders gone wild or anything] like having things out so your home looks like a cave of wonders which was the polar opposite to the home I grew up in, in my mum's house, everything was minimal whereas, in my house, I like to have stuff out, I feel it gives your home more character.


Thing's you can add to your home if you live in a rented property:
  • Pictures/art walls providing your landlord has ok'ed you putting up pictures [I know some can be kind of iffy] putting up pictures of your favourite artworks immediately gives your home some personality.
  • Wall hangings. this is a great one if you don't want to paint/can't paint the walls in your rented property. James and I have picked up a few from Camden Market and various other places and it has given our bedroom and our spare room that colourful boost it needed.
  • Bedding. I have a pretty vast collection of bedding now . . . . but I've found something as small as having interesting/colourful/ bedding really makes a room too.
  • Decorations/lights. I have an abundance of decorations and lights I've picked up cheaply over the years. They are perfect for adding the finishing touches to the rooms of your home.
In my quest to help me enhance my home with smaller details, I was very kindly given the chance to pick out some home bits from home treats. I Picked out the cinematic light up box and milk bottle drinking glass set.

The Cinematic light up box I was really excited because 1) hello the perfect blog prop and 2) I'm a sucker when it comes to atmospheric home lighting. I thought this was a really cool and different way to achieve just that without having to fall back on the old fairy lights time and time again. Plus, it looks super cute nestled on my bookshelves between my fave books. The light up box is powered by batteries instead of a power lead so there are no restrictions where you can place it! 

The milk bottle drinking set has become my new fave thing ever. So far I have used them for blog props [of course] little mini vases to hold little mini flowers and to make the yummiest drinks and cocktails ever. These would be great for wedding table drinks, summer house parties or special occasion drinks! For now, I've favoured having them dotted around the house with my favourite flowers. 

What tips do you have for decorating your home? What would you pick out from home treats?
