BOUJEE BAR CARTS & AND THE ESSENTIALS I'LL BE STOCKING ON MY OWN BAR TROLLEY
If you can't tell just from that first word, I am sooooooooooooooooo excited writing about this because I have wanted my own bar cart in my home since I moved in a few years ago. I know I'm pretty late to the 'carty club', but it's my first bar cart dammit and I'm going to make it a big deal!
Now that most of the furniture for my living room is in place (or awaiting delivery), I can move on to thinking about some creative styling, such as gallery walls, new fabrics and textiles, and more accessories of course. Y'all know I love to play around with moodboards, colours and products already, so naturally I'm already away with the fairies thinking about the overall finish of the bar area.
I always remember seeing gorgeously styled bar carts when I worked in the corporate world (in the city), and it always made me feel like I was somehow prestige because I was getting my San Pellegrino water off a marbled gold trolley instead of the top shelf at Sainsbury's. I'm bringing boujee back with a collection of my favourite bar carts to date, and then setting out the essentials that'll always be in stock on my cart so that I'm prepared for entertaining at all times!

Let's start with the most obvious item shall we? The bar trolley! Firstly, before I go on, I just have to say how much I love Wayfair. Argos, who? No I kid, because Argos will always be my go to for many things; but not this baby! I am always astounded by the range of premium-luxury products at Wayfair, against the amazingly affordable prices. Just look at this:
