Cookie Monster Fancy Dress Costume

Cookie Monster Fancy Dress Costume

If you’re looking for a super easy idea for New Year’s Eve or for your next party, try this Cookie Monster fancy dress costume I threw together on the morning of Halloween this year.

Sadly, I didn’t go to any Halloween parties, but I thought it would be fun to answer the door to our trick or treaters as Cookie Monster! I bought the T-Shirt a couple of years ago actually, with the intention of customising it into a really hilarious dress, but I never got around to it. So with one simple addition of a cookie necklace it made the perfect super easy fancy dress costume – no more excuses for not dressing up! I made the necklace myself by drawing some chocolate chips with a Sharpie on a circular piece of wood, but you can get some really cool ones from Etsy and who doesn’t want a cookie necklace to wear every other day too?

You can pick up the Cookie Monster T-Shirt from Amazon* for less than £8 too!

So there you go, a super easy and fun Cookie Monster fancy dress costume! Do you like costume parties? I love dressing up! Share some of your favourite fancy dress costumes in the comments below or @me on Twitter!

Bathroom Inspiration & Our Wet Room Bathroom

Ceridwen's Cauldron Bath Melt by Lush

It was going to be one of the last rooms on our list to renovate, but last week our shower started playing up and it looks like we’re going to need to rip out our wet room bathroom sooner than we thought!

When we first moved in, the bathroom was very clearly the most recently fitted and decorated room in the house. I wasn’t a huge fan of the wet room bathroom design and as time has gone on the room just look shabbier and dirtier. The floor that has been fitted has a very rough texture, presumably to avoid any slips on the floor, but it makes the room so hard to clean and stains really easily as well – so now the floor is kind of pink from my hair dye – oops!

Having said that, I can definitely see the appeal of having a wet room – even though I’m only 30 years old I struggle a lot around the house due to an ongoing issue with a weak muscle in my back. I have to avoid bending and leaning over as my back isn’t strong enough to maintain that position – causing problems if I ever drop something on the floor… which is a lot!!
With a wet room I never have to worry about stepping over a shower tray or getting laid down in a bath and not being able to get out… but I do miss having a bath so much!

When Premier Bathrooms asked me to share their walk in baths and shower prices with you I spotted an answer to all my problems – a mini walk in bath! I was always a shower person until recently, but I discovered the amazing healing powers of a bath through a series of Lush bath product reviews and now I’m distraught without one. Not only do they help you relax your mind, but the heat and relaxation is great for my back muscles too.

Unfortunately our bathroom is too small to accommodate a full size bath, but these walk in baths come in all different shapes and sizes which is perfect for tiny bathrooms and the little door means I don’t have to struggle to get in and out on my own – there’s little more embarrassing than being 30 years old and needing help to get out of the bath when you’re wet and naked!!

So suddenly I’m excited about the idea of renovating our bathroom sooner than expected and maybe I will consider another wet room bathroom after all – as long as I can choose the style of floor myself! Here are some ideas I’ve got floating around my head for our new bathroom renovation:
