Home is where the heart is...

These are some of my favourite presents from this Christmas! Desperately wanting to make my new place feel homely and comforting I had asked for Homesense vouchers. Homesense don't have that many stores and not everyone has heard of them but they are owned by TKMaxx and their products are truely beautiful. I have my eye on a large mirror for £200 but that will take quite a bit of saving! 

The cream cabinet below was purchased with my vouchers and I am still unsure of what will go inside but it was just too cute to miss. The little JOY hanging decoration was a little stocking filler from my Grandparents, they thought this was sweet because I work for JOY! The mugs were from a set my boyfriend bought me for Christmas, they are tooo cute with little strawberries around the edge. 
Cream Heart Cabinet - Homesense £24.99
Strawberry Mug - BHS £2.50            


I have wanted a birds cage for about 6 months now but could never justify buying one so now was my opportunity, again another Homesense purchase! The Home decoration was bought by my parents which is just soo lovely, I think this was from BHS too. The mirror below was another present from my boyfriend, again another BHS treasure.  
Birdcage - Homesense £9.99
Strawberry plate - BHS £3.00


Another purchase from Homesense was a throw and a duvet cover from the V&A. The cover was a bargain and the throw matches perfectly. 
Duvet Cover - Homesense £16.99
Pink Throw - Homesense £14.99
