IKEA x HAY. YPPERLIG IS HERE.

This is a sponsored post produced in collaboration with IKEA.   It’s funny how a brand so rooted and celebratory in its Scandinavian heritage can feel such an intrinsic part of the way we live our day-to-day lives here in Britain. I can measure my life in pieces of IKEA furniture. At the age of …
