Pink, Black & White

Gap Sweater // Gap Jeans // Madewell Shoes //
Zara Bag {similar} // Kate Spade Watch // Elizabeth Stone Jewelry Bracelet

I feel like this outfit sums up the tone of my closet without even meaning too! I love a good stripe and you'll have seen this sweater on the blog before. A lot of my recent outfits have been a mix up of old pieces as I was on a shopping ban for Lent and I have been trying to cut down my spending in general while we save for things for the house. 
I have worn this combination so many times in the past couple of years, yet for some reason it has never quite made it on to the blog. These jeans are the prettiest shade of pink and although these are old I have linked a similar pair here for you all. 
Circle bags were big last year and the trend seems to have continued into this year which I am super happy about because my first purchase after Lent may have been another one, look out for it in my April faves post!

Weekend Comfs

Happy Monday Everyone. I thought I would stop by and say hello again! I spent last weekend in Venice and I can't wait to share more on that with you all. This is going to be my first full week of work in 4 weeks because I have had so many long weekends, it's gonna seem like a long week I can already tell. 
This is a super simple comfy outfit I have been reaching for on weekends where I have lots of errands to run and things to get done. I actually shot this look a few weeks back now but without realising I reached for these exact same pieces again this weekend. I love how soft this pullover is and it comes in a whole bunch of colours. I was debating between the green and pink so I let Sean decide for me and he choose the army green, he probably thinks I have too much pink in my closet but there isn't such a thing as too much pink in my opinion.

A Look Into My Closet

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend, didn't it just go by in a flash? 
I wanted to finally start sharing some pictures from my home with you all. You all haven't really had a chance to see much on the blog and even on my Instagram I have only shared a few glimpses (follow the hashtag #athomewithstacey to see more). 
The living room is about to get its make over finally and I am so excited to finally see the main room of the house come together, I just order the new sofa at the weekend, I'm finally going to have the corner sofa I always wanted! 

I knew I wouldn't be able to decorate everything as soon as I got the keys because buying the house drained all my funds so lots of saving has had to take place, but one of the first rooms I did want to get done was my closet! I had always wanted my own dressing space and although we don't have much space in this house, the smallest bedroom made for the perfect room for my office/closet.

I was on a  budget so I knew I wanted to use the IKEA Pax wardrobes, ever since my first trip to IKEA I have had pictures saved on my phone of want I dreamed of having. If I had a bigger space I would totally love to have a whole shoe section too, but that's still dream. 
I really love the Pax system because it's so easy to customise, I already had a good idea what I wanted to create thanks to many trips to IKEA over the years and Pinterest (my inspo here), so I just ordered online, got it delivered to house and built it all with the help of my Dad, yes it's super easy to put together yourself! 

It's not 100% finished yet, I still need to add some of my favourite prints above my desk and actually organise my desk but it's almost there. It's my favourite space in the house so far and Bella loves to hang out in here with me too. I've linked as much as I can below but if you want to know where anything else is from just leave me a comment!

March Favourites

So I might have been bad at blogging in general so far this year but I have managed to share my favourites with you every month for the first quarter of the year and I'm proud of myself for that. I love collecting a list each month of things to share with you all, let's see if I can keep it up for the rest of the year! So here are my faves from the month of March.

I have loved Lush products for as long as I can remember and nothing beats a bubble bath with one of their bubble bars. I have tried a few of their face masks over the years but Santa put a different one in my stocking this year and I couldn't wait to try it out. It's the first time I have used one of the jelly face masks and they are so fun! The consistency of this mask starts off like jello and then as you rub it into your fingers it becomes incredibly smooth. I love the feel of this on my face and I'll definitely be repurchasing. An added bonus to this mask is it has a longer shelf life than some of the other face masks Lush does and you don't need to keep it chilled.  

I feel like I don't need to explain why these are a favourite, do I?! I mean if you haven't tried a Cadbury's Mini Egg in your life, where have you been? I like a lot of sweet treats and especially the ones that appear around Easter time, if you made me pick only one Easter Treat it would be these. I can easily demolish a whole bag in one go, whoops! The diet will start after Easter haha! 

I told you that I would be sharing another favourite from First Aid Beauty on the blog soon. I have been using this primer for a little while now and I already have a feeling it's something I am going to keep repurchasing over and over. I love just wearing this on its own with no make up. It gives my skin a very subtle glow and I don't even really know how to describe the feeling but my skin feels so healthy. Oh and it smells pretty amazing too! 

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen me post daily outfits featuring these thermals over and over (one made an appearance on the blog here). They are one of the cosiest pieces I have ever owned and I normally reach for one of these to throw on after work as soon as I get home. They are a closet must have in my opinion. Sizing can vary by colour I have found, I have XS, Small and Medium, it really depends on how you want them to fit. I found the beige colour to run the smallest and the lilac one to run bigger. I would stick with your regular size if you want a slightly oversized fit.  

We are big fans of DW Candles in this house, I love that they come in so many different fragrances. I have had scents for every season since I moved into my house and a very sweet little girl  stocked me up ready for Spring. These candles look so pretty sat around the house and I can tell you every DW Candle we have burnt so far has filled the house with a strong fragrance (I actually find these smaller ones better than the bigger size). It'll be no surprise that out of these three the peony one is my fave ;) If you are in the UK you can always find a variety of these candles in T.K Maxx and Homesense. 

I LOVE ice cream,  we are going to Italy soon and I am going to be in heaven. I had heard of Halo Top but had never seen it. So whilst I was browsing the ice cream aisle last month I was super excited to spy this brand. Now it's not the cheapest ice cream but it's a lot healthier (well I'm telling myself that) for you than others, so I feel like this is my not so naughty sweet treat. I picked up the cinnamon roll favour well because I love cinnamon rolls too, so I figured this ice cream would be a winner. The results are in and I think you're always going to find a tub of this in our freezer. It's on offer in Tesco at the moment and they got some more flavours in, I picked up the mint chip because it's one of my all time favourite ice cream flavours. Can you tell I have a lot of favourite things?! 

I'd love to know what you have been loving so far this Spring, leave your favourites in the comments below :)
