I’ve always enjoyed shopping for cute little bits and pieces be that make up, clothes, baby items or my latest obsession homeward. Since buying our own home a year ago my focus has been on making it look all pretty whilst tolerable to my very masculine fiancé.
Our theme is soft purples and grey cozy comforts with plenty of yankee candles and soft fluffy pillows. I prefer to hold something in my hand for the house before I buy it (unlike clothes and jewellery where I'm an online girl) hence Next home and The Range are my favourite haunts for our little love nest.
First up I thought Id show you some of the candle related goodies I have picked up to replace my ageing Lovely Kiku Yankee candles. Yankee candles remind me so much of being a teenager when I used to go into Clintons to sniff all the candles (usually only coming away with a small jar for my pocket money may I add). In my university years it was all about the large jars.
Summer Scoop - two simple words strawberry ice-cream.
Sweet Apple - The freshest scent of red apples that reminds me of days spent round my grans kitchen table with its over flowing fruit bowel.
Pink dragon fruit - The most difficult scent to describe so ill leave you with Yankee description of tropical fruits, personally its the smell of my house this summer.
Next up are these gorgeous tea light holders I picked up for £1.50 each in Next, they are almost like little flowers sitting on my mantle piece looking so pretty.
Finally Ive seen these vases countless times at weddings and been intrigued at their unique shape……wine glass vases what girl doesn't want a giant wine glass for when the OH has pushed that little bit to far or the baby has emptied every single toy in the house unto the living room! Sadly ours is simple filled with potpourri. £10.99 from The range.
Hope you enjoyed my little homeware haul and show me what you guys are loving right now.
