Spring Etsy Shops UK

Over the last 12 months, I have spent more time in my house than I ever have and therefore I feel like I've put more time, money and effort into making it a space that I enjoy to look at. Etsy is also a website that I have really fallen in love recently, but with such an array of shops and pieces to find, it can be a little overwhelming, but I have put together a list of my top picks. 

I have been eyeing up the Lemon Printed Glass from John Lewis, but then I found this Peach and Cactus Glass Mugs and now I'm tempted by them. I think they'd look lovely on a Summer's day with ice cold water and chopped up fruit. Also to go in the kitchen I spotted these Linen Tea Towels and I've been looking for some good quality tea towels which very simple to look at and watch my kitchen aesthetic. 

I feel like tassel garlands are typically found in nurseries, but I don't think that should stop you from adding them to your own either. I think they add a little colour and texture to an area like on top of your bed or around a mirror. This Neutral Earth Toned Garland looks like such a gorgeous pick!

For more decorations, I have been eyeing up some new prints to scatter around the house. This Vintage Vegetables Illustration would look great in my kitchen. whilst this Celestial Boho Print would go very well with my bedroom theme.  

In my living room, I've been feeling like I need to add some new pieces as it's been a while. I want to add this cosy looking Tufted Cream Pouffe which not only looks great, but is practical too. On the walls, I think this Embroidered Mesh Hanging Decor would fill a space in my print wall that I have up in my living room. If that doesn't suit that area nicely, I feel like this Macrame Hanging Shelf would look amazing with a plant on! 

Coming away from Spring home decor, I also stumbled across some cute hair accessories for the upcoming months. The first one being the Daisy Hair Clip Set which would look so cute in dutch braids to keep my hair away from my face and the Strawberry Dream Bandana gives me all the cottage core vibes. 

Have you found any great Etsy finds recently?

Spring finally feels like it's just around the corner and as I've been getting excited for the sunny days and longer evenings for some time now, I feel like I've built up quite the wardrobe wishlist. Over the next couple of seasons I'm looking at mostly floaty dresses, embroidered details and generally cute outfits to see me through and today I am sharing with you some of my favourite finds. 

I'm obsessed with looking at & Other Stories pieces because all of their dresses look absolutely perfect for Spring and Summer. This Puff Sleeve Maxi Dress is absolutely dreamy - I feel like it's something a modern day Cinderella would wear. This Ruffled Cotton Midi Dress is also high up on my list as well as this Frilled Embroidered Dress which I think would both fit well with a straw hat and sunflower field. 

H&M is another brand I have been absolutely loving. I'm coveting a lot of their pieces, but recently picked up this Puff Sleeve Dress which is honestly so dreamy if you're looking for a comfortable, yet cute dress. If you enjoy more prairie style dresses then this Satin Cream Dress may be the one for you, although I'm personally waiting for this Broderie Anglaise Dress comes back in stock soon. To finish the look, I picked up this Straw Hat with a gorgeous long ribbon - you can tie it around your neck and drape it around your face for a very 'cottage core' look.

5 Things On My March To-Do List

March To Do List 2021
- All links in this blog post are affiliate links. For more info head to my disclaimer. - 

It feels like it's been a while since I checked in and even longer since I consistently blogged, but with everything going on, I haven't been motivated to update my blog in some time. I definitely feel like I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, so I thought what better way of getting back into blogging than with a classic March to-do list post, where I share what are my goals for the next month. 

Start Spring Content

If there was a buzzword for Summer 2020 it would have been 'Cottagecore' and I absolutely fell in love. It incorporated everything I love about the warmer months and I finally found a style I coveted. If you do enjoy that sort of content and you already follow me on my other social media channels, then you'll be happy to hear that this is going to be a great influence in my upcoming Spring content that has actually already started to slowly start! 

Hunt Down Some Spring Flowers 

March wouldn't be the same without my annual mission of finding cherry blossom trees. I've already spotted a couple, but I can't wait until they are fully in bloom! Although we're a far way of wisteria and bluebells, it didn't hurt anybody to have a look anyway - especially towards the end of the month. 

Get Some New Houseplants 

I started my pursuit to being a green fingered goddess last year and started to fill my house with plants, which to my surprise, was a success. Over the Winter, some of those plants look like they've seen better days and many have sadly gone to houseplant heaven, but I'm determined to give them another shot. I'm currently eyeing up some houseplants shops on Etsy including Verdant Houseplants and Stupid Egg Interiors

Regularly Blog 

My last monthly to-do list was back in December, which says a lot about my blogging routine as of late. Although I'm regularly uploading on my Tik Tok and Instagram, my blog has taken a back seat as I've struggled to find the motivation. I want to rectify this and start upping my weekly blog posts again, so that I can share with you my beauty favourites and wardrobe finds. 

Find New Beauty Products 

Following on from my quest to blog more this March, I also want to try out some new beauty releases. It's been a while since I treated myself to anything new and I'm slowly running out on some of my favourites, so now feels like the perfect time. I'm thinking of opting for the Versed Cleansing Balm which has been on my wishlist for some time, but I'm also tempted to try out the Fresh Strawberry Face Wash as my skin is in dire need of some extra TLC and it also tends to react well to their products. If it's makeup I'll end up treating myself to, I think the Dior Forever Cushion Powder is dreamy - the packaging is absolutely divine! 

What's on your March to-do list?
