Homeware Haul | Ikea & Primark

Over the past three weeks, I have had a couple of trips to Ikea and Primark, as I've been changing things up in my room lately. Be warned - it's only grey and white!

The first place I went to was Ikea, where I bought the Fniss Waste Bin to keep under my desk for 95p. My old bin was a brown and woven bin, so things were always falling out the bottom. Plus, it was just quite ugly.
I picked up a Kingsize Krakris Duvet Set for £5.50 - £5.50 what a bargain. Basically a steal at that price, so I could not resist! The grey squiggles go really well with the colour scheme of my room; I love it! To match the duvet set I bought a little cushion of the same Krakris range for £1.
Also to have on my bed I bought a grey Polarvide Throw, which was only £3. So many bargains at Ikea!
Something I've had my eye on for a long time is the Tejn Faux Sheepskin Rug. It's soo cosy and soft and looks lovely in my room. Oh and it was £10!
Finally, I purchased some cacti - probably the only colour in this haul is the green of the plants! It's the Cactaceae 3 pack for £4.50, and no surprise, I bought them in the white pots. 

Next I went to Primark and only came out with one thing: a two set of grey 'honeycomb textured' cushions, which are so lovely and soft. I believe these were about £5 reduced from roughly £7.

Then, I went to Ikea again (I'm quite obsessed with that place) and bought two Skurar pots that I was umming and ahhing over getting last time. I love love love grey, so I got them in grey! They will be so nice for storage as well as display, and I can't wait to use them. One was £5, and the other was £6.
I got a Kardemumma Plant Pot for £2.20 as I've had a money tree sitting in an ugly green pot for soooo long. A white one was definitely needed.
My next purchase was a little bit random, but it was only 80p. It's the Korken Jar, and I'm not completely sure what I'm going to keep in it, but it will look so cute sitting on my bedside table.
Last but not least, I bought the Pokal Mug which was £1.70, and of course I went for white! I'll use this to drink tasty smoothies from, or maybe as a vase.

That's everything I've bought, I hope you enjoyed reading and having a nosey into my latest purchases - what have you been buying lately?



  1. I love the duvet, especially at that great price! I really want some cacti of my own too! Great haul x

    1. Thank you Erin :) I know, I couldn't believe it either! xx

  2. Hello, I just came across your blog and was wondering if by any chance you happen to sell your small IKEA Krakris cushions 35x35cm (grey white). My 2 year old daughter has had 2 of them since birth and they have become her MOST IMPORTANT items in life! she calls them Fuffy, we have at this point lost one in Cuba while on vacation and the second one is deteriorating bad, because as you can imagine, she drags him all over the house and he has now turned grey instead of white LOL including 100s of machine wash cycles. We are living in Canada but also stay in Austria for months at a time. So if at all you are willing to sell them, you would make a 2 year old princess incredibly happy ! please please please!!!!
    kind regards from a mum
