University Homeware Haul


So for those of you who don't follow me on twitter, I got into university! Yay! On results day, I actually had an operation, so it wasn't your typical celebrations, neither was the rush next day to go shopping for the long list of things you need! As I'm almost fully recovered now, I wasted no time in getting my list sorted and my shopping shoes on and seeing as I am becoming slightly obsessed with homeware, I thought I would show you the first trips successful purchases(minus the boring kitchen crap!).

This picture sums up my love of orange. It's literally my favourite colour and at home, my bed is full of blankets and cushions so I want to make my university room as warm and cosy as possible, in the hope that it quickly feels just like 'home'.. The owl cushion was £4 from Home Bargains, and the orange cushion set of 2 was from Primark for £5. BARGAINS.

I'm on a tin collecting rampage at the moment, found this in my grandma's kitchen, nabbed it and am going to store maybe my lipsticks in here..? I'm not sure, if you have other suggestions please leave a comment!!

 Ok, these cute little Cath Kidston esque tins were my bargain of the day, I was loving life when I picked this set up for 99p(!!) from Home Bargains! So pretty and I'm thinking the perfect size for bobby pins, hair bobbles and then miscellaneous pens etc, which obviously I have plenty of as a geography student..all we do is 'colour in' right...?

I wanted a little corkboard to pin a couple of photos/pictures from home, a few quotes I love and then reminder notes in the hope that one day, I can achieve the skill of organisation.. I think it was like £3 from Wilkos. My bedding is also from Wilkos, because I'm so upper class obvs, and I am obsessed with the black and white pin striped one! Sooo nice, and I think both will go really nicely with my orangey themed cushions and cream blanket! Both were £7-7.50ish.

My mum bought me these silver dog and cat photo frames for my little pets that I'm actually going to miss more than my human family members!! I can't believe I won't see them every day, will be so weird to not live around animals.. They were £8.95 each from local boutique.

I decided to show you some boring kitchen crap, to make sure you weren't going to sit me down and tell me that I can't live on/cook with blankets or cushions..or tins..or photo frames.. so along with glasses/dinner set/toilet brush(!), my mum picked up these kitchen utensils for me. Not quite sure what most of them do but hey, I'm about to find out!

The pop up laundry basket which is FLAT PACK, so cool, was from Primark for £3, didn't really need it but hey..

The cute cupcake tea towel was like 99p from Primark aswell, because obviously I'm all about washing up..!

This tin is my life. I put cutlery in it, just to make it look useful because I don't actually know what I'm going to use it for but I just love it! I'm not even 100% sure why but it was 89p from Home Bargains, shoot me..

I drink a ridiculous amount of tea, so living without a place to put the teabags, instead of the actual bin, would be an absolute travesty right! Plus the pattern matches my tumbler glasses(not in the picture) so it was a necessary purchase..

If you want me to show you things I bought that are actually important, if you like me are on your way to university like me, leave me a comment down below to let me know and I will definitely do that! Also let me know if you would like to see a uni room tour when I've settled in :)

If you have a homeware haul, PLEASE link it below, I'm becoming obsessed and need to read it!

Hope you enjoyed!
