January Favourite Finds 2017

It’s January favourite finds time! For those of you who are new around here, each month I share some of my new favourite things, places or events and I love to hear yours too! Big or small, new or an old favourite – they’re all great! So, onto my January favourites!

UE Boom Speakers

Technically this is a December favourite as it was a Christmas gift, but it’s certainly been getting a workout all January long! My love for podcasts is well documented and this nifty bluetooth speaker has taken my listening abilities to the next level. No longer do I need to carry my phone around my apartment with me and the sound quality is fantastic. I love it!

Wall Decorating

My apartment has lots of plain walls and after years in rentals I’m still getting used to the fact I can actually permanently hang things, so this month I have done just that! I was given some gorgeous photos of Melbourne laneways for Christmas and have paired them with some framed photos I took on my trip to Slovenia last year. I’m so happy with how they have turned out and they have added some excellent colour to my living room.

I also printed a photo of some friends and I in Ireland together which is hanging in my bedroom and makes me smile every time I look at it. Now all I need is a rather large abstract piece for above my couch, so if you know any artists I should look into I’d love to hear about them!

The MCG

If you follow me on snapchat you’ve probably seen an influx of photos from the MCG over the last few weeks, and that’s because I’ve been spending rather a lot of time there! In fact, I have been to more than 10 days of cricket this summer so far, with a few more ahead of me as well! It’s one of my absolute favourite parts of summer here in Melbourne, and I’m lucky to live within walking distance so I can just pop down after work. If you’ve never been to a sporting game at the MCG I recommend you put it on your to-do list, it’s a pretty incredible place!

Kikki K Goodies

After 8 years at the same job I resigned at the start of January, and I’m starting a new role in early February so I thought it only right to buy myself some Kikki K goodies for my new job. I love all things stationery and feel so much more organised when I have a clear to-do list and a fresh notebook. I’m looking forward to kicking off my new job with all these goodies on my desk!

      I have to avoid going into Kikki K unless I know what I need otherwise I’d buy the whole shop!

    I think the thing I hate the most about renting is not being able to hang my art and photos wherever I want. We used to have it all over the place in our old homes, and now we are restricted to one piece per wall. It’s horrid. I love your collection!

      It took ages before I was comfortable actually hanging new hooks in my walls even though I own my place – I was so used to renting!
