Most Popular Posts of 2015 | Poppy alla Norma

With 2015 almost at a close, it seems like the perfect time to review my year of blogging on Poppy alla Norma. There have been 52 blog posts uploaded in the last 12 months, and I thoroughly enjoyed writing all of them – taking and editing the photographs, not so much…

It’s crazy to think that complete strangers from all over the world are interested in reading what I have to write on my li’l corner of the internet, so I just want to thank each and every one of you who read Poppy alla Norma, leave comments and follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Bloglovin’ and Pinterest. It’s so lovely to know that people like you actually read this blog, and I truly appreciate every single view, comment and share on social media. The blogging community is wonderful, and I’ve spoken to so many lovely people I otherwise would have never have met. This blog has been such a big part of my year, and I hope it continues for many years to come.

Anyways, enough of the mushy stuff, let’s have a look at the most popular posts on Poppy alla Norma from the past year!

As we get closer to the start of university, I am getting more and more excited at the prospect of moving back to Hull. My boyfriend and I will be living in a two bedroom house just a five minute walk away from the university and we can’t wait to move in together. We had a couple of problems when we first got the keys, including a horrific stained kitchen carpet and a faulty gas cooker that tried to set fire to me when I turned it on, but thankfully our landlords have taken them to the tip and now we’re ready to move in properly. The house doesn’t feel particularly homely at the moment, but with the help of some stylish monochromatic accessories like these I’m sure we’ll have our own little home away from home in no time.

Review: The Melt Crowd by Flamingo Candles (July Box)

Review: The Melt Crowd by Flamingo Candles (July Box)

It’s been a while since I posted, hasn’t it? Between working and sorting through everything in my bedroom for the first time in nine years (!), I haven’t had any time for blogging! Nevertheless, I’m back with a review of possibly the nicest-smelling monthly subscription box around.

I have to admit, since moving to university I have become a total candle addict. Whenever I end up in the homeware section of a supermarket, I make a beeline towards the home fragrance section and I can never seem to resist throwing a couple of votives or tea lights into our trolley.
