Latest Homeware Buys

Hello everyone

I have been meaning to do a homeware haul for a while now and have finally got around to it!  I am a sucker for bedding I think I have a slight obsession with it and find myself drawn to bedding whenever I go into homeware stores. 

I saw this duvet cover on Matalan's website for £30 and was so tempted but tried to reason with myself as I have many bedding sets that I did not need another..yeah like that lasted long!   As it happens I logged on one day and Matalan had some 'One day deals' and this bedding happened to be down to £12.50!  I had to have it as thats a complete bargain. I was not disapponted either as its stunning. Sorry I could not get a better photo of this.

I also purchased these gorgeous cream curtains from Kaleidoscope for our spare room.  We have ust decorated it I will take some photos when its finished.   I wanted the bedding to match but unfortunately it had sold out! These are gorgeous they are fully lined and are like a silky material with a gorgeous lace trim.  They were only about £40 which I thought was great for such pretty curtains.

Butterfly lampshade from B&Q.  If you look closely you can see Ollie is trying to photobomb my photograph!!!

I have a Primark haul coming up and an Online haul.

I hope you enjoy reading my hauls...personally I love reading haul posts so if you are doing any please let me know.

Liebster Blog Award Tag


I have been nominated the Liebster award by a blog I love reading /  Thank you so much for this :) 

I had to answer the questions below and then set 10 questions and award this to other bloggers.  I will just nominate anyone who wants to do it but please let me know.

Here are my questions given to me:
Here are the questions I was given: 
1. If you could only shop at one clothes store for a year, which one would it be?

Oh gosh this is hard as I like many but if I had to choose I think it would be New Look. Basically I think they do everything pretty well.
2. When and where was your last holiday?

Palma Nova, Majorca last July
3. What’s your favourite band or genre of music?

This I cannot answer as I honestly like all genre's of music apart from Rap.  I mainly tend to like Rocky/Pop or Indie.
4. What’s your worst bad habit?

I have slight OCD so I check things a lot, this can be annoying.  
5. Who’s your celebrity crush?

hahah well believe it or not it used to be Simon Cowell...glad I go over that one..phew!  Then it was Jack from Lost. I suppose now I have to admit I do like Aliajz from Strictly Come Dancing..he has a gorgeous smile and a nice body.  I don't think I really have major crushes though I mean everyone seems to like certain films stars but I have never had that! I don't tend to go for who everyone else goes for aka Brad Pitt etc! 
6. Would you ever consider plastic surgery?

No never ever!  Don't get me wrong I don't think I am perfect and I would love to make some changes but would I ever do way! 
7. What’s your favourite cuisine?

Italian or English.  I am vegetarian and I have to have gluten free so it makes food options a bit more limited but I love GF Pasta or GF Pizza.  
8. Have you ever fallen over in public?

Yes....many times!  The worse time was in work years ago when I tried to get up from my desk in a rush and my heel caught on the wires under the desk and i just went smack down on the floor right in front of a team of people having a meeting!  I laughed so much I cried was so funny but very very embarassing! Another time my heel caught in a pavement in a busy town centre....!  It always seems to be in front of loads of people.  Glad I don't wear heels much now! I am a bit clumsy I walked into a recycling bin at work once too. 
9. What was the last book you read?

Sophie Kinsella - Shopaholic to the Stars.  I keep meaning to buy The Girl on The Train as everyone is raving about it! 
10. Do you have any tattoos or piercings?

I hate tattoos, I have nothing against anyone who has them its their choice but I just feel to me its just ruining your lovely skin...!  Each to their own though.  I have my ears pierced and when I was younger I did want my bellybutton pierced but never did it.
