THE STORE THAT IS YOUR GO TO, TO BUY CHEAP SNACKS AND CLEANING PRODUCTS.
BUT IS IT?
POUNDLAND HAS STARTED TO DIP ITS TOE INTO THE WORLD OF HOMEWARE AND HAVE PRODUCED SOME REAL GEMS.
WHO REMEMBERS THE ZEBRA AND CACTI VASES? I REST MY CASE.
On a recent Poundland dash of my own to buy barney bears and toothpaste I was stopped in my tracks. For months I’ve lusted after the textured glass vase from H&M Home. Don’t get me wrong with the vase range costing under £20 it’s hardly breaking the bank.
Poundland have now released a range of candles in a very similar design to the H&M Home vase and you guessed it they only cost a pound.
Yes my heart did skip a little beat with excitement thinking of all it’s uses. My only issue was, the candle wax. I’m impatient for one and two well there is no two I’m just really impatient and I want to use the jar ASAP.
I’m a custom to burning the candle at both ends but I didn’t have the first clue how to remove a whole candle wax from the jar.
After chatting with my Instagram followers about the subject and a bit of googling I came up with my plan. Now it’s time to share this information with you.
THERE ARE LARGE ONES,THERE ARE SKINNY ONES, THERE ARE SHORT ONES, THERE ARE LONG ONES…. WHAT AM I TALKING ABOUT? HALLWAYS OF COURSE.
The last hallway update was late 2018,when my love for Farrow & Ball Hague Blue was at its peak. Admittedly I still have big love for Hague Blue but I do become bored very easily. Instagram and Pinterest can often make you feel like a child in a sweet shop. I’ll have one of those and one of those and before you know it you’re decorating the same space multiple times a year.
I started to question myself, if you love Hague Blue then why change it? Why not find ways to update the space without decorating.
When the online print store Posterlounge contacted me about a collaboration I saw this as a perfect opportunity to use prints as a way to update this space, more on that a bit later.
IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR…. AND THE BUSIEST!
I have finally started my Christmas shopping and where better to shop than Tk Maxx.
Shopping in TK Maxx is always such a pleasure, I love how all the items are in their designated area so I can shop with no stress. I can literally spend ours walking the aisles looking at what they have to offer.
Tk Maxx house so many big labels at small prices and because I have so many people to buy for all at different ages and with different interest I needed to visit a store I could buy something for everyone whilst not breaking the bank.
I also like to try and find items that are a bit more unique, TK Maxx certainly didn’t disappoint when I was looking for something a little bit different.
Lets talk SLEEP! It’s not our strongest point in this household, we all want that real creme de la creme of sleep but we just aren’t quite achieving it . If it’s not a child waking up in the night it’s from the mattress that just isn’t doing it’s job. Now I can’t change the first as unfortunately I have a child we joined the ‘No Sleep Club’ from day one but I can change the latter.
Not another Interior/Lifestyle blog I hear you say!
I won’t try and sugar coat it, that’s exactly what this is but this Blog is by me so without further ado let me introduce myself.
Some of you may already know me from Instagram as the face behind House of Chester, my name is Michaela I’m a mum of two children and one fur babe Winston the untrained slightly bonkers French Bulldog oh and not forgetting my long suffering life partner Andrew. Living our lives in Essex
