Recently It was Iggys 12th birthday.
HOW DO I HAVE A 12 YEAR OLD?!
Iggy is now a giant. A beautiful long hair giant man child. He’s now taller than me, probably about 5’9/5’10 and very much an early developer(the word bloomer is super weird to say) I was very much the same. I was the tallest girl in the school, he’s the tallest boy. I was early to go through puberty, he is too. My feet stank no matter how much I cleaned them, his entire body is a stank factory. And as he’s a boy he isn’t the tidiest or cleanest thing in the world.
He has carpeted room and it’s not the best place for this messy boy.
So I surprised him with my studio. I recently let my friend live in while she was transitioning from her Melbourne to Sydney move, and I honestly don’t desperately need the studio as my living and dining area is massive and works fine to work from.
Leading up to his birthday and being on a strict budget, I had to carefully plan how I would decorate.
Iggy LOVES and I mean LOVES super soft blankets and dressing gowns and pillows and anything he can snuggle in. Winter is his favourite because it means he can lay in bed playing video games with a bunch of soft blankets surrounding him and wearing soft cozy clothes.
Best and Less wanted to help keep Iggy warm in his new room and make sure he had some new warm clothes for his favourite season. So the week before his birthday I went incognito to find some goodies and I was very pleasantly surprised.
I wanted to keep the colours in his room greys and blacks and warm it up with some wood. I headed in and found some super warm and lush soft $10 throw blankets for his bean bag in case he wanted a warm blanket. I found a big super soft microfibre blanket for the end of his bed and some awesome cushions. They were 2 for $15 can you believe that!!!? I was also super impressed with their bath mats. They’re such lovely thick woven mats, I grabbed one as a mat for his new Bunny. I just popped her food bowls on it and its so thick it contains any spills and I dont have to have ugly paper down.
He was SO excited when he got home from school. He said he felt like he was in a hotel room because he was so cozy.
