Home Haul

Hi everyone! In case you didn't know I will be starting university very soon which means moving out of my already tiny room and into an even smaller room.  I already struggle to find space to put all my crap so logically I've been buying lots more crap. Here's what I've been buying to make me feel more at home in my new surroundings.  copper wire basket
I hate how much I love the copper trend as I'm sure it will pass soon and I'll be left with a tonne of copper themed items I don't want anymore. However I couldn't resist this wire basket from H&M Home. I don't really know what I'll use it for, I thought about a bin but I think the holes might be too big for that. I'm sure I'll find a way to use it though because I loooove it.

Urban Outfitters Cabo Copper Pencil Holder
Again with the copper, I won't be able to move for copper in my new room! I'm currently using this to store my makeup brushes (face brushes that is, I put an eyeshadow brush in and it fell straight out the bottom, hilarity ensued), I think it's going to look really cool on my new desk.
Primark Hangers and Tiger Towel Hook
I am constantly in need of more hangers and naturally I went for these copper ones I spotted in Primark. You get 5 in a pack for £3 I think which isn't as good value as their other hangers (the velvety/felt ones) but I prefer how these look. I really want to get more but can't find them in the Primarks I've visited recently. And I got this towel hook when I was in London, my room probably has somewhere to hang a towel but I'm sure I'll find a way to use this. It was only £2 anyway.
Tiger Bowl and Pot
Tiger is so cheap and has some really cool pieces. Specifically this geometric bowl and pot (which I think I'll use for my toothpaste and toothbrush).

If you love homeware and you haven't been on the Asda website you are missing out my friend. It's amazing! There are about 10 things I want. The hare bedding was actually from my mum a while ago but the woodland bedding is still on the website along with some gorgeous other designs. And the best thing is they are only £12 for a double duvet! £12!! That's cheaper than Primark, people (which has got weirdly expensive in the home department recently, not amused Primark). 
The Range Nuts About You Mug
Why do I buy this stuff? I don't even drink hot drinks, why do I need a mug?! Ah well, it's cute and tea/coffee drinking friends or family can always use it if they visit. I'm afraid I won't be the one making the drinks though (not a talent of mine). 

pretty honest
I know it's not technically homeware but it will go in my room. I've started reading it already and I'm really liking it so far, especially the stuff about dealing with beauty counter staff- I am terrified of them.

That's not even half of the things I've been buying for the home recently but it's the most interesting/easy to photograph. I bought a lamp which I absolutely love, it's big and grey and gorgeous but I couldn't get a decent picture. Anyway I hope you enjoyed today's post! Thanks for stopping by, lots of love,

  3. Hi Annie. I know this is a weird comment, but are you interested in selling your woodland bedding? I've wanted it for so long x
