You will soon learn to know how much I looove Ikea.. Here is another example of their geniousness; after finding out that over 100,000 people had liked “I want to have a sleepover at Ikea” on Facebook, Ikea in Essex organized just that.. A massive fan sleepover in their store, with new fresh Ikea linen, goodie bags and an evening snack in the Ikea Cafe! Wish I could have been there, especially to hear one of the TOWIE stars read a beadtime story, haha!
