t-shirts!!! and House of Holland

 I love a white t-shirt, it is probably my signature item of clothing, if I'm not wearing one on its own then there is probably one lurking underneath a jumper or coat!!! I find them such a staple, I have a few [a few too many to mention in this post, ha ha]
but really I love lots of t-shirts, wether they are white or not. a great slogan tee, patterened tee, picture tee and I love boyfriend style t-shirts.

in my inbox today, amongst the heeps of clothes store emails, I came across this beauty by none other than the House of Holland. I love the picture, they are describes as pom poms but they remind me of koosh kins I used to love them I was younger, actually I still do, does anyone else remember them? for more info click the picture below!!!

anyway back to the t-shirt, with further investigation I found this campaign on the House of Holland website, click here to see the film, it seems the pom poms have made quite an impact on some of their designs!!!
here are a few items from their pom pom range

anyway as this post is about t-shirts, and as I've been browsing the House of Holland website I thought it would be rude not to share some of my favorite t-shirts of theirs

ahh the humble t-shirt

clothes, clothes, clothes

wow what a walk in wardrobe!!! featured in sex in the city the movie. not even in my dreams would it be likely I'd have a walk in wardrobe like this. the vast space is just waiting to be filled with mountains of clothes, and what fun it would be buying the clothes to fill it!!!
I'd really be happy with carries old walk in wardrobe as pictured below, it is hardly unreasonable, I could defiantly make great use of it.  

so my mountains of clothes and lack of walk in wardrobe led to a little diy project called trying to fix my chest of draws so; my draws actually work, I can actually tidy my room, my clothes don't get ruined by getting trapped in broken draws.

after numerous attempts to try and fix the draws including; 
using nails and a hammer= fail
using duct tape= fail 
using wood glue= fail
using wood glue and duct tape= still a fail ahhhhh

so the draws on each attempt held for a while, until I actually placed my clothes in them!!!
really the amount of clothes I own is just too much to try and get shoehorned into the chest of draws.

for a while my chest of draws looked like the above picture, with the bottom two draws missing and the other draws crammed with clothes, you may notice the clothes trying to escape from the third draw down. 

I love a tidy bedroom and looking at broken chest of draws was not great!!!
a great pair of draws was needed, teeteehee

so here are my lovely chest of draws

they are from IKEA and after my dad spent a day putting them together [thanks dad!!!] they were in my room just before Christmas, yay!!! and my clothes fit in them
