Lovestruck

I’ve always had a bit of a fascination with Love Heart sweets – back in my teenage years I filled my bedroom with love heart cushions and proudly carried around my mobile phone in a Love Hearts phone case. 
I guess it’s one of those quirky obsessions that never really left me entirely, especially when I spotted a few pieces pop up on My Mad Fat Diary recently…90s revival?  Yes please.
 This super tacky plastic money box was something I had previously had my eye on at Christmas in a department store – though I never managed to track it down in the sales.  I had a funny feeling I might bump into it eventually, it was when I got a tip off that they were selling them off in a bargain store in town, I knew I had to have one... 
Mwah!
£2.99 from B&M Stores
What could I possibly do with this monstrosity? Of course display it!
Did I mention it also came stuffed with Love Heart sweets.  Perfection.

  9. I never heard of Love Hearts! It looks so cute though, and I love that you got it as a decoration piece. It makes your room look so fun and quirky, and it kindaaaa makes me want to be a kid again =P
