OOTD and Country Living fair!

Hi cupcakes, So yesterday I went to the Country Living Spring fair in London. It's being held at the Business Design Centre in London from 24-28 march.
Our tickets were £11 but buying them on the door they cost £15!
I had never been before and although it was an experience I wasn't to pleased with it :(
As you probably all know by now I love shabby chic things so I thought I'd be swept away by all the amazing trinkets and prettys but I wasn't! Although I was excited to get a goodie bag!
As bad as I feel it is to say..I would suggest to save your £11 or £15 and head down to your local garden centre or my EBAY (if you like anything in my ebay but you are outside the UK please email me
To be honest I found it ironic that a place filled with ladys yet no one acted very "ladylike" very busy with lots of pushing! I don't want this review to sound like I hated it because I liked looking around but would I go :(
I did buy one thing though..A retro looking popcorn box! lol I saw it and had to get it..I love eating a bit of butter popcorn while watching a dvd! yum
I managed to take a few pics and a quick snap of my OOTD (I cut my head out of it as I got really bad travel sickness on the way back and looked ill)! here are a few pics..

How to make your own body scrub..

Hi everyone, Here is my quick, easy and cheap way of making your own body scrub.
My favourite type of body exfoliator is a sugar scrub because the grains are smaller I find it so much easier to use and for me rock salt scrubs just fall off the skin and just leave a big ol mess! Does that happen to you?
So I stopped in Tesco after work and found this cute glass jar for £1.25! and the sugar was 99p
I already had oil..Now it's up to you what oil you use..I actually used baby oil as I had a whole bottle and never use it. Other options are olive oil, grape seed oil (good for tightening the skin) or almond oil (good for healing scars) Mix the two together with a spoon..ET voila!
This is also a good idea as a gift if you put a little ribbon or pretty material around the top!
So this was made for under £5! I'm super pleased with my home made mixture I can't wait to have a bath and scrub away! :)

Duvet decision

Hi Dolls, I have recently discovered some tears in my much loved duvet cover! sob,sob :(
It's my most loved one I've ever had. I bought it a long time ago so it's done well. It is a gorgeous cherry blossom pattern and it was part silk so it was so soft and warm..I'm so sad that I'm forced to part ways with it..But hey,ho New Year new cover!
So I've picked a few pics from google images of some that I like..I would like to hear your thoughts on whether I should go for a simple cover or something patterned.
My bed cover is in my video room tour(below) so you can have a look at the rest of the room and let me know if you think I should go plain for a change or more with a pattern? what do you think?
