Last month I told you the exciting news that I’d been chosen to be an ambassador of the Poole HomeSense store, and as well as giving away a voucher for the store I’d also had a tour and been given my own voucher to pick up some treats. For those of you that aren’t familiar with Home Sense, they’re part of the TK Maxx group and have the same ethos of offering designer and branded items for super bargainous prices. The homes section is always my favourite bit in TK Maxx so when I discovered Home Sense – which also sells books, stationery and body and bath products – it’s fair to say I was a little bit excited and have been a dedicated follower ever since.
Home Sense stores are always beautifully laid out, with items grouped in colours and displays that provide inspiration for little corners of your home. Personally I always head straight to the soaps and candles, I’m a sucker for pretty packaging!
Colourful throws and blankets are perfecting for brightening up a cosy Autumnal afternoon…
The cookbooks are always a must-stop for me too. So many bargains to be had! I was very tempted by the Leon cookbook but am still working my way through another one of theirs so forced myself to wait! (Too many cookbooks, too little time…)
I loved this little cupcake baking inspired display….
And this is what I treated myself to. Some new towels for the bathroom, some chocolate (it was by the till, how could I resist?), a vintage looking tea jar, a beautiful plate, some dog bowls for Bodhi, some candles, some cinnamon sugar (hello morning smoothies!), a book on British walks and a crate for storing bits in the bathroom. All this was £75 (I put some of my own money towards it along with them generously giving me a £50 voucher). I’m so thrilled with all the lovely pieces I picked up, I got some real bargains!
Bodhi loves his new dog bowls, they definitely brighten up the kitchen and are better than the horrid plastic ones he had before!
