I’m lying in the bed next to a poorly sleeping Oscar, who I should probably wake up from his nap soon, and thought I would write the first of 3 haul posts I have. I am deliberating whether to do one of the others as a you tube video, but I shall see how I go with that.
So anyway, as I was saying, a home haul. Now I haven’t gone out and bought a multitude of homes as quite frankly, given my credit rating, that would be impossible. What I have bought is little things for our flat. Including one that I didn’t take a picture of as it’s a bit difficult to show you the full effect of it.
First up is this gorgeous duvet cover. It’s very me and I actually had it on my eBay watch list for months but never bought it. Paul had been telling me about a duvet set they’d got in at work that was so me, it was perfect etc. The other week he did some night shifts, got a voucher and promptly bought me the duvet he was telling me about it. Yes it was the one I had on my watch list for months. I’m not sure who it is by, only that it is called Canterbury, which also happens to be where we live.
Carrying on the duvet theme, is this AMAZING one from George at Asda. I’d seen various bit of the George home range but nothing really jumped out at me, until I saw this.
Isn’t it just brilliant! I don’t think I could get a more perfect duvet for me. I love pin-ups, to the stage I will have a pin-up tattoo one day, and to just get a duvet with them on, is quite frankly wonderful. I haven’t put it on our bed yet but here’s a picture of the pillowcase
The background is tiny mint polka dots too. If you want your own, it cost us £14 from asda.
I’ve been getting into candles a bit recently, I’m so behind the times! I couldn’t justify the cost of the yankee candle jars so I went for the little samplers instead.
I chose Vanilla Lime and Sparkling Lemon, both quite sweet citrusy smells. Saying that they dont smell as much as I’d expect when you burn them. Do the jars smell more? Ideally I wanted the Hazlenut Coffee sampler, but typically that’s been discontinued. I can find the tarts on ebay so I might get one, but I hope the smell is strong.
Lastly, and the one I can’t show that well, is our new wallpaper for the front room. I can show you a picture of the pattern and the wall it will go on, so you’ll just have to imagine how it will look. When we finally get it finished I’ll no doubt be showing it off.
Have you bought anything nice recently? Do I really need to buy the yankee jars to get the full whack of smell?
