I'm Moving : Homeware Haul

If you follow me on twitter you will know that in 2 short weeks I am going to be moving out for the first time (yes at the age of 23!) and moving into a flat with my lucky boyfriend! 

So for the last few weeks I have been picking up a few bits here and there for it - it is addictive - and when I mentioned doing a little homeware haul on twitter you were all really interested so I thought I'd go ahead and do one! (My twitter is @KirstieLouiseS )
Here is just a few things I have picked up for my new flat!
(Obviously I've been ordering pretty new furniture too but that isn't here yet and I didn't really think kitchen utensils and a wok or two would interested you all!)
I actually picked up this canvas a little while ago (you may have seen on instagram!) but it has just been sat in my room, because I am lazy, so I thought it would be perfect to take to the new flat. 
I love everything it says - it is so true (minus the fact I hate coffee). I'm thinking of putting it up in the bathroom as it goes with the colour scheme in there ... and it does say "bubble bath" on it! It is from good old Matalan and was only £8 - bargain!

I love these boxes so so much! Don't you think they are so pretty?! I've had just one for ages and when I knew I was moving out I thought they'd be perfect for storing lots of stuff in (as I'm not taking all my furniture from home).
 At the moment I have one for photos, one for all my travelling memories - (tickets, photos, bits and bobs etc) and I have a third one in which I haven't filled yet but I think it would be perfect for birthday cards/postcards and little memories that I have kept over the years ....I  may be a little bit of a hoarder! I also really want to buy another one for nail polishes and at the moment my storage for all of mine isn't great! I'm going to keep them under my dressing table when it arrives! They are from Tesco and are about £4.25/£4.50ish!

These are just some tissues boxes (boring to some of you) and I merely bought them because they had a cute pattern and they were on offer! 
2 for £2 in Boots and they are meant to be £1.99 each anyway, bargain I'd say! I thought these would look cute on each of our bedside tables (nice and symmetrical!) .... yes he is having a flowery box of tissues and will have to deal with it!

Sorry about the annoying flash in the photo! Now I know some of you may find this a weird thing to have bought so soon but because I yo-yo so much with my weight I knew I had to have these to keep on track! Quote my Mum "you WILL put on weight when you move in with a boyfriend" .... No I shall not haha! I got these paricular ones as they are digital and I feel they are probably more accurate that your ordinary scales! They are from Boots and were around £16ish I think.

This is something I bought maybe over a year ago. (I know I know it shouldn't be in this recent haul blah blah blah but shhhh it's being included!)
 I saw it on play.com and obviously fell in love and with it being only £3.29 or so I had to buy it. 
It is a Wizard Of Oz tea towel and when I bought it I said "this is for when I move out!" so here she is! Looking on play.com now it is a ridiculous £17.21 ... but I'm sure you can find it cheaper elsewhere!

These cute floral lined wicker baskets are from Tesco and were only £9 for the pair! I thought these would be perfect for storing products in!
As you can see I have been picking up stuff for the boyf and I already! All these things have been on offer (£1 or just over) so I grabbed them while I could - will keep us going for a while! 

Candles, candles, candles I love candles.
I have been buying the "Damson and Pomegranate" one for years from Tesco and it is probably one of my favourite candle scents ever. So, when I went into Tesco and saw that they now make an extra large version of it for only £5 I was in there like swimwear!
£5 for 80hours burning time of the most amazing smell - you can't say no!
The other candle I got is the Yankee Candle in "Black Coconut" and again (of course) this was another bargain! I have been eyeing up this badboy for months, I love coconut scents and Yankee candles are always such good quality and this was HALF PRICE!
Yup, the Clinton Cards by me at the moment are having a big old sale (possibly closing down the poor old thing!) and this included some of the Yankee candles so I got this for £8.49 instead of £16.99 - Barry Bargain! (and it will go with all the furniture I've purchased so far!)

Lastly, something I nearly forgot about, is this little sweet jar! (Photo from phone instead of camera - sorry!) I actually saw this in a charity shop and with it being only £1.50 I thought - why not! It is a cream china and covered in Liquorice Allsorts - perfect to whack in the kitchen and keep little treats in!


Let me know what you think of this post and if you want to see anymore updates or posts about my move and new flat!

  13. here are several corporations who charge further on varied conditions. As an example, if you would like further packing materials and boxes, then you will got to pay extra worth. to boot, if your home attics is brief or your stairs are slim that produces moving troublesome and therefore the loading time is extended, then the prices of moving might increase. The worth of moving conjointly varies consistent with the space. So, it's continually higher to possess a transparent image before you sign the deal with a Mover.
