Remember when I took part in Money Supermarket's Secret Santa challenge? It was a really feel-good thing to do, so when they got in contact asking if I'd like to take part in another challenge all about celebrating life's little wins I jumped at the chance.
For the What's in Your Pocket? challenge we were each given £20 to spend. No strings attached, just £20 to evoke that feeling of finding cash you didn't know you had in your pocket. We could spend it on whatever we chose, or save it towards something bigger. As you can probably guess, I could think of lots of things to spend it on, but in the end I decided to use the money for something I wouldn't normally do.
Despite having moved in nearly three years ago, some areas of our house just feel unfinished. I had a few little quote postcards lying around as well as this frame from TK Maxx, so with a spare £20 to treat myself with I decided to invest in making our hallway a little more like home.
The first thing I spent my money on was a print from the very talented Jaymie. She was really helpful and due to a mix up actually sent me two prints across - I encourage anyone looking for a new piece of art to check her out! With a bit of change leftover I then bought three simple frames and started chopping up a couple of Elle magazines. Being subscribed to it means I get sent collector's covers, and I'd fallen in love with February's Scarlett Johansson and this month's VB. It seemed such a waste to just leave them stacked with my other magazines, so I put them in frames and now I get to enjoy the beautiful photography every time I go upstairs.
Without being too Anne Hathaway about it, I'd like to thank MSM for getting me involved in this challenge and providing me with the kick up the bum I needed to get this project started. I have plans to expand upon the hallway but for now I'm really loving it!
