Apartment Update: En-Suite Shower Room

The second bedroom en-suite is finished. It’s hard to take photos as it’s such a small space, but here’s what it looks like after decoration.

Originally I wanted to replace the light fitting and add a few extra bits and pieces – mirror, towel rack etc, but in keeping with our fairly minimalist lifestyle I changed my mind. The room is fine as it is. I may buy a small basket for toilet rolls (if I find one I like), but apart from that it’s all done.

We kept the original blue & white tiling and so a nautical theme, by way of hand soap (keeping it simple!), was in order!

We added two hooks – one for M’s bath towel* (which looks a little stained in this pic – it’s not lol) and one for a hand towel.

*When the master bathroom is done he’ll be the only one using this room and so extra hooks are not needed.

The print used to hang in our previous house and it’s perfect for this wall space (and colour scheme!)

Overall we’re really happy with how everything turned out with such a small budget. The bright white paint, and new flooring, has made such a difference.

Menu Planning #29

Hi guys! Sorry for my prolonged absence.

I started out this morning with a quick fridge freezer inventory as I had no idea what was lurking in there after being away for a few days (and I don’t want to grocery shop until Thursday!) We have the following:

Freezer:

Breads: Panini x 4, Bagels x 19 (halves), Brioche Rolls x 4, Rolls x 2 and 0.5 of a loaf of Sliced Bread

Meat: Sausages x 4, Pork Loin Chops x 4, Burgers x 2, Bacon x 1, RM Quiche x 1, Meat Sauce x 1 (meal) and Chicken Curry x 1 (meal)

Fruit & Veggies: Peppers x 1.5, Green Beans x 0.75, Peas x 0.5, Corn x 0.25 Mango Pieces x 1.25 & Blueberries x 1.5

We also have mushrooms, spinach, potatoes, cheese, plain yogurt and one egg in the fridge.

We have a lot, which made menu planning easy.
