I’ve been home a few weeks now since my recent trip to Wisconsin and, after spending a bit of time while I was over there picking up bargains in the US of A (see the haul post here), it wasn’t long before I had a sudden urge to head to some of my favourite UK chains and see what’s on offer in my own country.
Spring/Summer lines are predominantly filtering their way into the UK high street stores, with some chains still trying to dispose of A/W 16 pieces. However, there are also plenty of opportunities at select stores to pick up discounted lines in the mid-season Spring sales.
I am currently in the process of building an office in my bedroom. This is going to be a little area that’s cute and homely, yet professional, where I can go to when I’m in serious blogging and freelance writing mode (watch out for an upcoming post where I go into detail on my newfound chosen career path). Therefore I’ve been looking for homeware pieces of late to fill said office space.
I was in Debenhams the other day as I love their homeware; it’s such good quality but also purse-friendly! It’s even more purse-friendly at the moment, as there is currently sale across the entire store, and you can get a further 20% off when you order online if you visit this website. There are also other deals and promotions for Debenhams on this site so make sure you check it out so you don’t miss out!
I bought this lovely ‘Sheer Vanilla’ fragranced candle at a discounted price, which I thought would sit pretty on my new desk. It will bring a little bit of sunshine to my office space with its yellow lid; oh and did I mention that it smells absolutely divine?
Candle – Debenhams – Was £6.50, Now £4.55
Furthermore, Primark is currently offering some bargain dreamy homeware pieces. Observe:
I fell in love with this inspiration board when I first saw it. I thought it would look perfect hanging above my desk and I can fill it with photos, pictures and quotes that will make me smile as I work!
Inspiration Board – Primark - £6
Along with the inspiration board, I just had to buy this amazing Unicorn cushion to prop me up while sitting on my desk chair. Not only do I love Unicorns, but my boyfriend always tells me off for being ‘too sassy’. (Meant to be or what?)
Cushion – Primark - £5
This came hand in hand with a notebook that reads ‘Part Mermaid Part Unicorn… Therefore Completely Awesome’. (I love mermaids too!) This super adorable notebook will make a great addition to my desktop as somewhere I can scribble down my endless jobs and to-do lists. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.
Notebook – Primark – £2.50
All four of these items that feature in this homeware haul just seemed to have my name on them; it’s almost like they were made with my office in mind! I can’t wait to put them in my new space and, at less than £20 for the whole lot, you can’t blame me for not being able to resist.
Enjoy your nice, long Easter weekend!
