Visiting Ikea...


On Wednesday Todd and I took advantage of only having one little with us and hit up Ikea. Now before I continue, I've got to admit that I don't do well at Ikea. It's so busy and with the only way out being all the way through everything. You can't just run in and out. I start to feel a little trapped and hanging to get out into the open space outside again. It just feels like a big maze. Plus Todd's not such a fan, I basically bribe him with the dollar hotdogs.

But I had spotted a few things online that I really wanted to see in person before I made up my mind about some DIY and decorating projects that we are working on. And let's face it, I was pretty keen for the dollar hot dogs too!






Jeans - Target, Top, Cardigan and necklace -Big W, Sandals - Mooloola 

It was fun. Half the store was blocked off as they were setting up new displays, which only added tothat awesome  trapped feeling, and meant some stock was nowhere to be seen. We had some hits and some misses, but we have made some fun plans which will see us heading back there in the next couple of weeks. Can't wait to share with you what's on my list of lust-haves and what we have in the works soon!

Do you love or loathe Ikea?

Oh, how I love IKEA. My bank account cringes at that name. The closest one to me is 2 hours away, but I love making those special trips every once in a while to stock up on things. I'm currently debating on buying a couch from them...ah!

Hi. I am hopping over from Passion for Fashion. Great casual outfit. Beautiful cardigan. Love the color and your necklace. As for Ikea.......uhm, I loathe it and I love it. I am often disappointed in reality, but it's still worth a visit, tho.
BTW I am now your newest follower.
Happy holiday weekend.

IKEA is an odd store....I've been twice, just for the experience, but my husband and I just mostly walk around and think, "nope, we have enough stuff in our house already!" :P I do like the little mini rooms they set up, those always seem fun!
