Since having my own flat, I love going interior shopping almost as much as I love clothes shopping. I think at least one Sunday a month warrants an Ikea/Home Sense/T K Maxx/Debenhams home accessories shop, hoard, haul, whatever you want to call it!

So this Sunday I ended up in Ikea, pure heaven – if you exclude the 25 trolly bashes to the leg, screaming children and monstrous queue at the end.

Ikea LeedsI went in looking for a lemon tree. After seeing one on Pinterest I’ve had it in my head that I need to get one for my flat to brighten up the place for spring and who knows if the lemons taste nice, to use the lemons for my very overdue housewarming cocktail party!

I came out spending £50 – oops! But I got some really CUTE bits.

So here it is, I managed to bag myself a cute little lemon tree to call my own, along with a few other accessories along the way.
