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, 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 Autumn/Winter 2016 pieces. However, there are also plenty of opportunities at select stores to pick up discounted lines in the mid-season Spring sales.
Since I decided on freelance writing as a career path, I’m 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 mode.
Therefore, I’ve been looking for homeware pieces of late to fill said office space.
Firstly, I was in Debenhams the other day as I love their homeware; it’s such good quality but also purse-friendly!
In fact, 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 the Codesium website.
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
In addition, Primark is currently offering some bargain dreamy homeware pieces.
Inspiration Board – Primark – £6 / Cushion – Primark – £5 / Notebook – Primark – £2.50
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!
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?)
This came hand-in-hand with a notebook that reads ‘Part Mermaid Part Unicorn… Therefore Completely Awesome’. (I love mermaids too!)
All four of the above items that featured 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.
