Flat Essentials | Tool Kit & First Aid.

FirstAidToolKit 5

Moving into a place all by myself meant I had to have bits and bobs that I would admittedly normally rely on my parents for.

My grandparents bought me a pink tool kit, perfect for hanging things on walls and fixing little things, not to mention IKEA flat pack furniture.

How many times have we all got ill, needed something basic like paracetamol only to find we have to make a trip to the supermarket. Mum and I came up with a list of must haves for a first-aid kit:

  • Plasters
  • Paracetamol
  • Ibuprofen
  • Lemsip
  • Cold & Flu Tablets
  • Vapor Rub
  • Bonjela
  • Eye drops
  • Nasal Spray

Still need to get some safety pins, bandages, alcohol wipes and a thermometer.

What else would you have in your first aid kit?

No Place Like Home.

It’s true, there is no place like home. Glasgow for me is now home. My flat is now finished and I love it. All the little details have come together nicely.

Starting with my new keychain. Who doesn’t love a Lego astronaut complete with flashlight?! Thanks Grant!

Adding a bookcase to the hallway was a great way to use the space, as well as have a place to put my keys and store some of my bits and bobs in the shoe box at the bottom.

The living room is pinterest perfect (in my opinion). The grey sofa with teal accents really pops. The handbag photo frames on the wall look perfect.

A lovely rainy winter day up in Glasgow. Going to try and get more photos when it’s actually sunny. May be waiting awhile!

Still need to buy some new coffee table books to complete the display.

The artwork behind the TV fits in perfectly. Luckily it was already in the flat!

The big bookcase holds all things Fiona, from cookbooks to Le Creuset to lots of baking books, my lomo camera and some Lego…

Speaking of Le Creuset the handbag has been placed in the kitchen.

Unsurprisingly, the kitchen has yet more teal!
