TK Maxx Haul | Candles, Stationery & Clothing (but mostly candles)

Oh hello to you, my little blog, long time no see.

First of all, let's address the elephant in the room. I am no longer 'OhZelda'. Well, my header isn't anyway - I'm still in the process of changing my url and migrating over to Wordpress, which is a whole other can of worms! I kind of grew out of the 'Zelda' nickname around 2 years ago and have fallen out of love with it.

If you're sat wondering 'what in the world is lttlems?', it's simply 'Little Ems' without the majority of the vowels to make me look somewhat more cool, hip and down with the kidz than I actually am. My family have always referred to me as 'little em', and whenever in the presence of another Emma, I always end up the 'little one', whether it be in age or in height haha.

It's no secret to anyone that I am an absolute TK Maxx and Homesense ADDICT. I'm sure it's no surprise, that I fell into TK Maxx after Christmas and bought a ton of stuff... I didn't realise until I'd gotten it all home (on multiple occasions, might I add) how much I'd actually ended up buying, so I thought I'd haul it all for my first video of the new year!

I've linked the products below as best I could - unfortunately some of them weren't available on the TKMaxx website so I've linked the most similar thing I could find - if you're after the exact one I got, it's probably still worth running down to your local to see if they've still got some!

Moving Out For The First Time & Why I Will Never Be A Vlogger

As I'm typing up this post, I'm sat in my own little bedroom, with an overload of copper decor and accessories, whilst my boyfriend is playing his PS4 in the lounge maybe a bit too loudly. And it feels gooooood.

I'll be the first to tell you that being in a long distance relationship is difficult. It really does make you appreciate the other person when you finally do get to see them, but I won't lie and say that it's not hard work, because it is. And it's a position I never thought I would be in. At the start of this month, I made the decision to be an independent, grown-up woman (for all of 5 seconds before I ended up cracking fart jokes etc etc) and moved out of my dad's home, almost 200 miles away from the tiny town I had lived all my life. And just like that, the long distance relationship was no more, and we had moved in to our first place together.

Aside from the dramas of actually moving, vlogging is something that I really, really want to be good at. But apparently it's something that I'm not fated to do. Seeing as I have my own little YouTube channel now, I had a brainwave that I'd like to try and introduce more vlog-style content - and I'd try to vlog the whole moving process over a few days...

I failed miserably.

Alas, I thought I'd edit it all together anyway for those of you who would like to know how NOT to vlog, it seems that I'm your gal...
I'd love to at some point make a sit down video (because apparently I find that much easier than actually remembering to periodically pick up a camera) where I talk more about my moving out experience and how I dealt with the whole process - especially since my worsening anxiety really tested my coping skills. Yay for my crap brain!

For now, feel free to head on over to my channel and take a gander at my failed vlog attempt - whether you enjoy vlogs or just need something horrendous to laugh at, I've got you covered.



Huge Copper Kitchen 'Stuff' Haul

Oh boy, do I love a good copper object. 
The time has come for me and my boyfriend to think about moving into a little place of our own, and we'll be doing just that next year! Moving out means having to start from scratch and all of a sudden actually needing to buy your own kitchen utensils. It's big stuff. 

I'm a copper obsessive. If there was an 'I-love-copper-anonymous' club, I'd be top of their list. I'm incredibly lucky to be the girlfriend of somebody who also enjoys copper things, and seeing as we share the same interior design taste, there was no holding back when it came to me raiding Aldi for their copper kitchen wares. 

I. Bought. Everything. 
No literally, everything.

The link to the Aldi Special Buys page is here, I'm not sure if these bits will stay on the website after their time is up or if they'll just stay in store until they're sold out, but it's worth having a look! 

As always if you enjoyed the video please go on over to my channel and let me know - I"m gonna have a LOT more home-y stuff to show you if you're interested!
