New Home Ware Bits & Pieces


I have to admit, I sometimes prefer buying home ware over clothes and makeup. I know, is that really bad of me?! However, when you have your own place where you spend the majority of your time (I work from home so I'm here a good 90% of the time), it's important it looks nice, right? I love nothing more than buying new nick nacks for my flat and making it look all pretty. I can't way to buy a house this year so I can go on huge shopping sprees to Ikea and make my Pinterest boards a reality.  Ahhh, the dream! I'm having to hold back on home ware purchases at the moment as I'm restricted in what I can add to my flat because it's rented. That means I have to add personality to it with accessories - cushions, candles, flowers - you know the drill! 

I've bought or been bought some cute home ware bits and pieces recently so I thought I'd throw them all together and do a post in case you like the look of any of them for yourself! As you can see from the images, there's a bit of a Copper theme going on and that's because I LOVE all things Copper, especially home ware. I'm trying to build a little collection of stuff as I already know it's the colour I want to accessorise with when my boyfriend and I get our first house together!! 


So starting off with said Copper bits and pieces - I was recently in New Look when I spotted this cute copper lantern and thought it would be perfect with a tea light in it on my TV unit. New Look actually have such a lovely range of home wear bits and bobs at the moment - I'd definitely check it out! I then bought another copper item to go on the other side of my TV unit (I'm very picky about things looking equal haha) and this time I got this super cute tea light holder from Urban Outfitters - I'm not sure how to describe it but it's very pretty!

The tea, coffee and sugar set is from Next and was a gift from my lovely boyfriend for Christmas. Most of you're probably thinking 'what a random gift' and while I agree it isn't the most glamorous of presents, he knew it was something I wanted so got me it as an extra alongside some other lovely gifts. He's very thoughtful! As I said, I want to have Copper accessories when we get our house and we already have a Copper kettle and toaster so this set was the perfect finishing touch to bring everything together. They also look amazing against the White kitchen in our flat. I also spotted a Copper salt and pepper set in NEXT so I'm thinking that will be my next (sorry, no pun intended) purchase! Another item my boyfriend very kindly bought me for Christmas was this tumblr from Urban Outfitters - it's a lovely frosted glass with a gold ombre effect and a cute striped straw. He knows how much I love things like this and I've been drinking water out of it non-stop since I got it.

Another item from Next I picked up just before Christmas is their 'Sandalwood and Amber' room spray which smells absolutely incredible. I don't know if this was part of their Christmas range or not (I can't find it on their website) but I'm hoping it isn't as it makes my flat smell devine! Also, the packaging is Copper so I was immediately drawn to it. I also bought the match reed diffuser but totally forgot to include it in this post. Oops! I was probably stood in Next for a good ten minutes sniffing all their candles, room sprays and reed diffusers - they've got such a great selection. Then again, pretty much everything in Next Home is amazing - I'd decorate my whole place with all things Next if I could! Definitely my favourite place for home ware shopping!



The Weekly Planner pad is something I bought a while ago from Not On The Highstreet and I bought it to go on my desk so I can keep my weeks organised and know what I need to do on each day. If you're a blogger, this comes in very handy as you can jot down which blog posts you want to go live on which day, important deadlines, meetings and events. I keep this on my desk at all times so if I ever need to jot anything down, it's right there. Not to mention it's ridiculously cute too!! Another item which is now sitting on my desk is a light up letter K my boyfriend bought me. He was out shopping at Fenwicks in Newcastle and had to buy me it as soon as he saw it as he knew how long I'd wanted one! I think they're so cute! Unfortunately you can't buy from Fenwicks online so I haven't got a link to it but I did find this website that sells virtually identical ones.

Finally, I just had to include these beautiful The White Company products. I was very kindly sent a candle and reed diffuser from their new 'Lime & Bay' range and they are incredible. They have a very sexy scent - it almost reminds me of mens aftershave and I LOVE mens fragrances so that's a winner for me. I can't wait to have these in my flat - The White company is such a beautiful and luxurious brand so it's a real treat to have their products making my place smell all lovely! I'd highly recommend you check out their products if you haven't already!

So there we have all the new home ware bits & pieces that I've recently added to my flat. I hope you enjoyed this post - home ware and interior design is something I'm really passionate about so I loved writing it! Do let me know if you'd like to see more home posts from me - maybe a flat tour?!

  2. I love each and every piece you selected. I'm like yourself, where I'm basically at home majority of the time so I feel as though-being a homebody- I want my space to be to my liking and if that means decking it out with a heap of cute homewares, so be it! or at least that's how I justify spending my money ;) gotta fill those blank spaces.

  6. Ahhh I love everything, I'm obsessed with copper atm too! Good luck with buying your first house, it can be pretty stressful but it's SO worth it! Also, the Sandalwood & Amber fragrance weren't part of the Xmas range but there so popular it's always in & out of stock (I work in Next Home!) - but hopefully you should still be able to find it in stores!
