As I revealed in my last post, we’re moving house, which means I actually have a legitimate excuse to buy things – not that I ever needed one. Of course, some of it will be boring appliances, cleaning materials and odd bits that were always there in your parent’s home so you don’t even think to buy them until you move to a new place (pegs don’t grow on trees people!).
With all that in mind, here are a few bits I’ve picked up recently:
OVERSIKT MUG – IKEA – £1.90 EACH
I like big mugs, and I cannot lie. I realised when wandering around IKEA that I had zero matching mugs, which of course meant that I had to get some. When I saw these monochrome bad boys, I nearly squealed – this is what my life has become.
GODDAG TABLE RUNNER – IKEA – £5
We have a cute little dining table for our new place that will fit nicely in our living room, and I wanted something that would go with whatever decor we choose – enter GODDAG, the holiest of table runners.
COTTON BALL LIGHTS – B&M STORES – £4.99
I’ve wanted some cotton ball lights for a while and I couldn’t get over how cheap these ones were from B&M. They had a multicolour version too that would look great in a child’s room.
Who said electrical purchases had to be boring?! I loved this retro-effect toaster. I did originally pay £16 for mine, but it’s now gone back up in price. Still fairly reasonable for a 4-slicer!
LETTER BOARD – B&M STORES – £7.99
I already know owning this letter board is going to result in some hilarious notes between me and Gavin. It’s larger than it looks in the photo, but I think it will make a great addition to our future gallery wall or picture shelves.
MONSTERA PLANT – IKEA – £15
DAIDAI PLANT POT – IKEA – £2
THIS is my pride and joy. I have wanted a monstera plant – commonly known as a cheese plant – for such a long time, but they’re often around £50-£60 in garden stores and I wasn’t prepared to risk that amount on something I might inevitably kill…. but £15?! That’s definitely reasonable. I have been a good girl and read up online how to keep this baby alive, so I’m hoping it flourishes into an even bigger beauty.
