What's on my coffee table?

Back when I shared the post about my dressing table, I got a few requests to do more decor related posts. Well, I can't say I'm an expert, but I do know I like to keep our place tidy and I also like pretty things! haha So I went ahead and adapted the "What's on my bedside table?" tag (which I did ages ago, check it out right here) and now I give you "What's on my coffee table?"!

I absolutely love my coffee table. It is the IKEA Klubbo . It's massive and that's exactly what I like about it! I almost went for the smaller version, thinking this would be too low down, but evertyhing about it is great.

I like to keep my candles on my coffee table or else I always end up forgetting to burn them (bad blogger)! The ones currently on there are the ones I mentioned on this post and I think my favourite might be the Rituals Under a Fig Tree. It smells very sophisticated for the price! hehe I also have this huge Audrey Hepburn coffee table book, which I got from my father-in-law for my birthday last year. I absolutely adore it, I always look at it for inspiration. There's also a new one from her time in Rome while filming "A Roman Holiday", which I got for Christmas! Alexa Chung's IT is also on there, but only because it looks very pretty. I understand the hype around it because, I mean, it's HER. But the book itself is very childish. 

 I like to have fresh flowers around whenever possible. I find they completely transform the mood of the room and they just make me happy! I like to keep this cuticle balm on there as well so I can apply it when I'm mindlessly watching tv, or else I never get around to it! Also, the obligatory Playstation controllers... You'll know from this post I'm absolutely obsessed with playing Call of Duty, it's the only game for me! haha And I am in love with my coasters, is that really weird? They look so nice and expensive, but only cost me £12 for 6 at Home Base! LOL

What do you guys think? What do you keep on yours?
