Home Haul | h&m, Primark, and TIGER!

Hello everyone, hope everyone is enjoying their week so far!

Today, I am here with a home haul post! I don't think I've done one of these before mainly because I never bought too many home stuff in one go. I bought these in attempt to create a more organized, and hopefully tidy space for me and my new roomie to live in. I will also add in before and after photos at the end of the post so you can have an insight to my small little space.

h&m copper basket £12.99
 I have been eying up this basket from the moment I saw it... I resisted the initial impulse to buy this but then when I got home, I had a bunch of wires on the floor. I couldn't stop thinking about this beautiful basket and how it will simply add a touch of (almost) rose gold to my interior, whilst keeping my wires in a contained space. So I headed back to purchase it! The price is reasonable, I think you can get cheaper alternatives from tkmaxx as I have in the past but I don't think I've seen anything copper/rose gold in there... so I have no regrets!

TIGER Mirror £4

Sylwia (my roomie, hello if you are reading! ;D) has a similar mirrors to this one. It is just so handy to have around, especially to do your make. I've never had one of these because I never want to pay money for one. I never really felt the need for it but since seeing Sylwia do her make up in one place, I have longed for one for myself. Up until now, I was using my full length mirror, which can be a pain cause it's so big that it doesn't sit on your table, so you need to go and get your make up and then go to the mirror, etc... I grabbed this one cause the mirror is pretty good quality, as in it does not distort your reflection. It is a little on the small side but for £4, who can complain really. It is a self assembly mirror, so it is sold as a flat pack, which makes for easier transportation.

Tiger Square candle glass holder £1

I'm not sure if this counts as a home purchase but I bought it with the mirror so thought I would include this in this post. This glass plate like thing is meant as a candle holder but I thought of my lush sugar scrub when I saw it, I thought of how it would sit perfectly in there. I have used an empty nivea tub to store this which was fine but all I need was a little plate for it to sit on so it doesn't spill everywhere. This is £1 and perfect for the job!

Primark Double fitted sheets £5.80 | Primark Elephants Double Duvet Set £11
I went into Primark with the intention of picking up one thing, but yet again I came out with way more stuff than expected! For those who know me, well I mean my little brother and sister, knows that I have a little thing for Elephants... It all happened when we were at a family friend's home. I got bored and looked around the room, I then realized that there were a lot of elephant related (paintings, photos, little figurines, medium sized figurines, soft toys, etc) objects in the room. I decided to count them to past time, and my little brother joined me, before we knew it, we were going round the house shouting elephant at every elephant we saw and we got a total count of over 100, can't remember the exact number but it was definitely over 100! So ever since then, I pay a lot more attention to elephant related objects and this had so many elephants on it that I just had to purchase it. Plus I only have one set of sheets and duvet cover, and have done for years so I think I deserve an elephant upgrade! I also bought some sheets to go with the duvet set. My old ones are a lilac colour and I have make up all over that so let's see how long this one will stay clean for...

Primark Printed pop up laundry basket £2.80
 Yet another item that has been inspired by Sylwia. She has one of these, and I knew they existed but I always just stuck all of my laundry in one of those laundrette bags, you know the ones that old people have when they go to the laundrettes? Or in an ikea bag. It was fine but just looked a bit messy as you will see in the photos below. This was on offer, think it was only reduced by 20p but still saving none the less! haha

So as you can see, this is the before. I lied about my sheets, I have two but only one single and one double. This duvet is a single one and normally is a spare but I left my double duvet at my old flat so this will suffice. I also bought a double duvet from primark for £7 and so far so good, very soft and comfortable. BUT ANYWAY... back to the topic, this is before. You can see that I have a lot of appliances in the bottom left corner. My big ikea bag is my laundry bag.

Look how much tidier and brighter everything looks. I love how there are pattern clashes, I do love a good random mix of patterns. I think one of the reasons why it is so much brighter is because of the colour of the sheets but everything just seems to work with each other.

Of course I wouldn't normally have my sugar scrub on my table but for the purpose of this blog post, it will sit there. Haha! Apologies for the mess on the window seal but that's where my everyday beauty products live and it needs organizing, so that might be my next task!

I do love my little corner!

Do let me know if you enjoyed this post and want to see more home organizing style posts, or even if you just wanna see the rest of my room.

Until next time,
