So we spent Saturday shopping for bargains to refresh our new home!
We went to Lakeside in Thurrock and shopped in Ikea and B&M.
I struggle to keep plants alive, so I decided the best thing for everyone involved is for me to get artificial ones. Ikea sell some pretty realistic ones and you can pick up some funky, bright pots to keep them in.
I couldn’t resist the baby cacti and David bought a Venus fly trap too. These ones are real so fingers crossed we get this right.
I love Ikea for three reasons
1) An accidental haul won’t break the bank.
2) The smell that hits you in the face as you enter Candle heaven.
B&M are fantastic for cheap but stylish décor. I got this gorgeous set of two mosaic lamps for £14.00. I also got a soft throw in the sale for £12.00 and some magnets and notepads with cute and bright quotes for a few £’s just because!
What did you get up to this weekend?
p.s. No plants were harmed in the making of this post.
