Random Haul - Ikea and Lush

Today I've got a post full of some very random and nice things I bought the other day. As you can see by the title the things in this haul are from Ikea and Lush.

I'll start off with Ikea. First up I bought some decorative pieces to have in my bedroom to add a bit of colour, so I got these fake flower roses for £1.75 each and I bought three. You can cut the stems to whatever length you want but be warned DON'T use scissors as the wire running through the stem will break them! I am absolutely in love with these fake flowers as these colour roses have to be my all time favourite flowers! Now of course the flowers can't stand up by themselves so to go with them I bought this vase which I can only describe as a milk bottle, and it was only £1!

Next up from Ikea I wanted to grab some bedding whilst I was there so I just got some plain white bedding and I really impressed with it (feel so old saying I'm impressed with bedding!) I bought this for a double duvet and 4 pillow cases, all together it came to £17 and it is honestly so soft I love it. Plus it'll make a great background for Instagram (be sure to follow me HERE, shameless promotion.)

As there was a Lush near to Ikea it would have been rude not to stick my head in, but of course that always ends up in spending money, I should have learnt that by now! I'm running out of my usual toner so I decided to go for something different, did a bit of research on Lush's website and went for their "Breath Of Fresh Air" toner, and I'll let you know how I get on with this. I've always been a big fan of Lush's "Honey I Washed The Kids" soap, so wandered over to their soap section, and after smelling "Miranda" I couldn't put the bar down. The ingredients to this all equal to a sweet citrus smell and I'm obsessed. One thing I will say is I don't think Lush's soaps would be very good for dry skin and I do personally find them quite drying!

I hope you enjoyed this haul!
I intend on adding in some makeup looks very soon to my blog again as I feel I'm lacking them at the moment!

  1. I just love Ikea and wish it was more closer to where I live :( we have to travel 2 hours to get to our closest Ikea so we normally go once a year or something in the summer :) I love how clean and fresh Ikea furniture is and it also lasts longer for the price compared to more expensive brands/shops. Love the milk bottle vase it's so pretty :) I also use the LUSH toners and find them great for using in the morning xx

  5. It's the best thing and the worse thing (for my bank balance) having an IKEA only 20 minutes away! IKEA hauls are one of my faves :-) Love your cheeky bargains.
