A Little Homeware Haul


Would you believe it? Me doing a homeware haul! In the whole time I've been blogging I've never done a homeware post, but hey, there's a first for everything, right?
Technically this isn't all from one big shopping spree but over a course of a few weeks and I thought it would be quite nice to save up all the things I've bought to go in my bedroom and actually write a blog post. You may have seen a few of these already on my instagram but I wanted to put them all together in one place.
Now i'm just dying to show you what I got.


Cushions
I've wanted some pretty cushions for my bed for while now and managed to pick up these two little square ones for under £10. I was in New Look when I came across the "Dream Like A Unicorn" one (£5.99) and it was the last one sitting on the shelf in their reduced section. Well you can imagine my delight, so now this sit's on my bed and reminds me to be happy every night before I go to sleep!
The Applique Owl cushion (£3.99) happened to find it's way into my basket on a recent visit to Home Bargains along with a few other items. Sadly, I couldn't find it on line to put a link, so if you ever go into one of their stores it's a case of grab it while you see it.
Both of these cushion are small enough not to take too much space on my bed but cute enough to make it look a bit more girly.



Candles
One of the things I love about Autumn is having the wonderful smell of candles burning and getting all cosy in the evening. The reason I was in Home Bargains in the first place was because I was trying to hunt down this Wickford and Co Gingerbread candle I'd seen in Saira's You Tube video and she had mentioned how wonderful it smelt. After searching in a few stores, I finally found the very last one left on the shelf! It's a really great bargain at only £2.99 and it looks almost identical shape to another more expensive brand! I couldn't wait to start burning this one (as you can see!) and it has the most gorgeous sweet spicy fragrance, it reminds me of the wonderful aroma in my kitchen after I've been doing some baking and this candle really does have the smell of freshly made gingerbread. At such a great price I also couldn't resist picking up the Halloween candle as well, which I've yet to use but it does have a wonderful warm, spicy fragrance.
If you love the smell of pumpkin then I promise you'll love this Lindsay Lucas Pumpkin Pie Candle. I picked mine up from Etsy for £4.99 and it smells divine and it's literally as though I've just served up a slice of pumpkin pie!



I wanted to add some warmth to my bedroom and thought gold tones would be perfect. So continuing with the candle theme I was so happy when I spotted this rose gold tea light holder in Card Factory for £1.99, can't complain at that price. The funny thing was I that I'd not even gone in to the shop thinking about home accessories. I'd popped into pick up some wrapping paper. Well it now looks so cute sitting on a shelf in my bedroom.
This pretty gold hanging heart also came from Card Factory and cost me £1.49! Yay, another bargain, and it looks quite at home hanging on my dressing table mirror.
Something I was in need of was some extra storage for my makeup brushes and I've seen quite a few about like this one in Wilkinsons and thought this would be just the thing to keep all my brushes tidy. However, I'd already got an unused one in black which was in my office but didn't quite go with the theme in my bedroom. So my other half very kindly painted it with some gold paint that he had left over (which you can get in most hardware stores) and hey presto, it's now home to some of my makeup brushes and looks so pretty sitting on my dressing table.


I picked up this mini hanging storage rack in Poundland and absolutely loved the pretty detail on it which I thought would be handy to store some of my most used lipsticks and jewellery, so they would be easy to get to everyday. It originally came in white so my other half painted this in gold as well to match everything else. I'm one very happy lady!


I fell in love with this absolutely gorgeous copper foil print as soon as Jemma put it on her Etsy store. I'd been eyeing it up for a few days and in the end I just had to get it. While I was waiting for it to arrive I picked up this beautiful gold frame from Wilkinsons for £5.50 to continue with the gold theme in my bedroom. I'm extremely happy with this lovely print and it just looks adorable hanging on my wall!

So that brings me to end of my very first homeware haul and I'm so pleased I've done it all on a budget. Now my bedroom really is looking all warm and cosy.
