Can you believe it is almost the bank holiday weekend and it is pay weekend too, if your like me and paid monthly you will know the excitement of payday.
Today I have a really fun homeware haul post with one of my fave brands for home decor Marks and Spencer. As we are starting to come into Autumn I picked items that will freshen up my existing decor.
Have a peep below for all the items and you might find something in the post that can be your payday treat?
Also there is 20% off Home and Furniture this weekend until August 3rd so perfect for that payday treat!
For more info and t&c’s click here.
I fell in love with these cushions, the mini embroidered ‘home is where the heart is cushion is a steal at only €16, it is a heavier fabric too and feels like a type of wool, perfect for cuddling up to in the evening.
The Rosie rabbit cushion further below is also great value at €20, last week I picked up my nephew jack a vintage Peter Rabbit book so when I seen this cushion I had to have it. I just love the vintage style of the print and I also love animal print cushions especially in Winter as they make the decor more cosy.
You can find the mini cushion here and the rabbit cushion by clicking here.
If you follow me on snapchat you will know that I am a little bit obsessed with all things bees as the moment. I wish you could smell this candle, it smells delicious and it is a blend of relaxing lavender and calming chamomile. The scent fills the room and isn’t too overpowering.
Its actually quite big too and its roughly 330ml and its only €16, have a peep at it here.
This teacup bird feeder is too sweet, as you know I am obsessed with garden trinkets and teacups so when I seen this it went straight into my shopping cart, this will make a pretty feature hanging near the tree and hopefully I will attract some birds to it in Autumn. It is €20 and click here to view it on the website.
I am obsessed with all things floral, this hand painted style jug will make the freshest of flowers look even prettier. I can’t wait for the gorgeous Autumn colored flowers to bloom so I can put them in this jug.
I love flowers in the house but some of my rooms don’t get enough natural light and fresh flowers tend to droop before their time so I love artificial flowers, it can be hard to find realistic looking flowers too. The ones in Marks and Spencer always look amazing and so realistic, this cherry blossom and rose ceramic vase would lift the dullest of corners and it is €40 and you can view it by clicking here.
Nothing adds warmth and texture to a room like a soft throw does, I love coming home from work, pouring a pot of tea and snuggling up on the couch watching tv or reading a good book.
I love check styles for Autumn too, they just look so cute like something from a cottage, these styles are timeless and never go out of fashion, I got this purple color to match in with my decor.
Its also machine washable which is handy if you are like me with pets, you can find it in the site here,
Even Blondie was loving the check throw.
My garden goodies.
If you follow me on snapchat you will have seen I am obsessed with the garden this year as it is my first year to grow bulbs and seeds in my flowers beds. I am excited to see what is going to grow and blossom in Autumn.
I adore little trinkets for the garden that catch your eye so I couldn’t resist this mini bird bath, this is also heavier and shouldn’t smash if any of the birds knock it over. You can pop it in the flower bed or on your garden table.
Hands up who remembers being a kid and your parents ringing a bell for you to come in for your tea. This love birds garden bell is so sweet and I just had to get one for the garden, I love that it looks vintage and love trinkets like this to catch peoples eye.
Here is the links to all of the items, just click on them and it will bring you directly to them on the marks and spencer website.
Home is where the heart is cushion €16.
Artificial cherry blossom vase €40.
Lavender and Chamomile candle €16.
