Home wear haul…


Having spent quite a lot of time in the flat recently, I decided to do a bit of a home wear haul, to brighten the place up a bit and to get ready for the wintery season.

Living in a fully furnished flat was initially a great choice for us as we didn’t have the money to buy new stuff however, now that I can afford new furniture … it’s doing my head in!!!

All the furniture we have is so old and falling apart, I spend hours trawling through pinterest boards of the perfect living spaces and weep into my cheesy pasta.

Anyway… On Monday my mum took me to B&M, the most amazing shop in the universe! It literally has everything you could ever want! Food, Home wear, furniture, seasonal products, toiletries, pet care … EVERYTHING!

Here’s what I purchased …


This lush red checkered blanket and duck egg pillows!

The blanket has made me feel so festive and is also super cosy, with a sheep skin style lining… perfect for those chilly nights.  The pillows are nice and plump so have not only been great to lay my head on but also ideal foot pillows for my cast, win win!


This lampshade <3

So retro and I absolutely love it! However… Jon hates it, he doesn’t like the way it distributes the light in the room but I’m hoping that he is too lazy to swap it back and just gets used it it 🙂


Flower fairy lights.

I have been looking for these online for ages and could never find ones that I wanted but then I stumbled across these beauties for £2.99!!! This is more for the wedding but is making my living room look fancy until then! (Just need to find some batteries now.)


An adorable wooden owl.

Seriously! How cute it this little guy!!!! I hadn’t named him until this exact moment, so ladies and gentlemen….. MEET HAROLD! I have no method to this madness, I just feel like he looks like a Harold. He is now taking pew in my bathroom.


I really wanted some plants in my bathroom to brighten the place up a bit but i tend to kill plants (still not mastered this grown up skill yet!) So this find was so ideal! It is a fake lavender plant with a difference… it comes with lavender essential oil which you squeeze over he plant to make it smell FANTASTIC! Highly recommend! (Also considering Lola’s litter box is in the bathroom, anything sweet smelling is a massive plus!)


Anyone else LOVE B&M???? How are you making your home more festive this year?

Peace and love xoxo
