Waffling on About Perfume Bottles

Ikea Perfume Bottles
Perfume Bottles
After the spring dispenser thing (technicall terms only here) on my beloved Daisy broke I headed to ebay for a new glass bottle but all the versions I liked were around the £15-£20 mark so instead I started to use the power of my nails to spray a tiny bit onto my wrist whilst the rest dribbled down the bottle. Waste. I was actually perusing Ikea for a milk whisk when these beauties called me over and for £7 (ish, it may have been £7.99) for all three I couldn't resist, and the fact that Thomas was paying made it even better!
Not exactly an incredibly exciting purchase but they look nice so I thought I'd share. Another thing I've been loving this week are waffles. WHY HAVE I NEVER TRIED MAPLE SYRUP BEFORE? And eating them for breakfast as a week-off-work treat made them even better.
Waffles and syrup
I blame these for my lack of blogging this week. That and the fact I've spent the weekend visiting relatives I sort of forgot existed in the land of Grim(sby), it was a very Northern and a very Royle Family affair and there were tacky foil christmas decorations everywhere - poet. I did get to see my nephew again though which was nice, we had a full on conversation where the words "ball" "gone" and "bah" were repeated a lot.

  20. These are super cute perfume bottles, you found them at Ikea? What a great find.

    Maple syrup is quite good, I do have to say that I try not to use too much though or it just ends up everywhere - like my hair, I always somehow get maple syrup in my hair.

  36. Frequently driving another auto is a spectacular affair yet then selecting your auto and arranging upon the cost of the auto with the sales representative is a cerebral pain. Most importantly in the event that you have not as much as impeccable credit, discovering fund for your auto makes it an awful affair. check cashing
