H&M Home Haul


I've been shopping like crazy...

And I feel like I'm getting old, because nothing feels as good as shopping for things for my home at the moment! :) I placed an order on H&M Home and today I wanted to share a few cute things I picked up from them. I'm so excited they started delivering their home things to Slovenia!

Let's start of with this grey blanket, which comes in a few other colors (here's hoping I can eventually convince my boyfriend to get the pink one as well). It costs 30€ and it's incredibly soft, perfect for snuggling up! I'm kind of getting tired of those super soft polyester blankets because they get ruined fast and don't look very expensive, so this is a great alternative.

I also got a whole bunch of candles: Honey Blossom - a sweeter scent, Green Tea - sharp and citrusy, and Cotton Flower - gentle and soft. I'm so glad I was able to get a few candles from H&M, I love them and they're a good bargain at only 8€.

My favorite buy is probably this beautiful round vase, which is glass and has a gold rim on top. I think it would look stunning with peonies, which I really need to buy if they're even still in season! The vase costs 20€, and there is also a smaller version available.

I got a cute napkin holder which goes nicely with the coasters I showed you in my Zara haul. It cost 8€ which is a bit stupid since it's just a bit of metal... And it also comes in rose gold.

Finally, because I am a child, I got a plate and mug with a cat motif. Of course I had to buy them, do you even know me? :P I think they're adorable, and I'm pretty sure they're meant for children, but I'll probably use them for photos and decor. They are both 6€ and there is also a bowl available.

I'll definitely order from H&M home again. I keep wishing these companies did furniture as well because I'm sure it would be adorable. But until they get on that bandwagon, I'm happy with their cute decor stuff!
What's the last thing you bought for your apartment?

Mini Summer Airport Haul


What's a girl to do when she gets to the airport 3 hours too early?

Well, shop - of course! I only ended up getting a few bits but I still wanted to show you my haul from the Nice airport. They have a tiny Duty Free and I wasn't that into the stuff there, but I still managed to pick up 4 new products.

Perfume

Starting with perfume, I got a long-coveted scent - Elie Saab Le Parfum L'Eau Couture EDT. This scent is absolutely divine and so, so special. It doesn't have a lot of notes, mainly vanilla, orange blossom and green almond. I smell all of those and they make for the loveliest soft scent. It's inoffensive and perfect for hot summer days when you don't want to wear something as cloying as Bronze Goddess, for example. I love it! Available here  from 62€.

Body

Next up, I found a well-stocked TBS section and I just had to pick up a few things. I was very curious about the English Rose range, but they didn't have testers and I decided to be a sensible human being and not blind buy. I did however, find some bits from the Honeymania range, and ended up getting the Body Butter and Shower Gel from the line. So excited about these - honey is my favorite note of all time. Body butters are around 15€, and the shower gel was 6,40€.

I also grabbed a Strawberry Body Polish from The Body Shop, which is a product I've had before and really loved. I don't remember the scent being quite so sickly sweet, but I'll still use it up. I know my boyfriend will love it, even if I don't. The body polish cost around 8€.

That's it, my teeny tiny France haul! I wanted to wander into Sephora, but the only time I was there, I was completely exhausted and couldn't handle it (shock! horror!) Next time for sure, though... I have a few more trips in my future. ;)

ZARA Home Haul


I'm back from France!

You know what the best part of coming home is? Yep, finding a bunch of new packages waiting for you. :) ZARA Home recently started delivering to Slovenia, and since I love their home stuff, I needed to order a few things for our apartment. Here's what I got.

Kitchen/dining

Let's start the haul with these gorgeous gold coasters. Our living room is kind of oak-gold-white themed, with some grey as well, so these look lovely, mixed with our current bamboo coasters as well. These were in the sale and are out of stock now, but you can check out more coasters here.

I also got 4 of the cutest geometrical white mugs, because we need to clean out our mug collection - we have a bunch of them that don't match at all, which bugs me to no end. These are 7€ a pop here.

A set of tea towels also found its way into my basket. I find we're always ruining them and they need to be replaced quite fast. Again, these are out of stock, but you can check out more tea towels here.

Bathroom

I got this really nice set of a glass and soap dispenser in white with a black border. I think they look really chic and they look great in our bathroom. I also got a white soap dispenser for our toilet. The prices for these range around 8€, and I think they look so classy in the bathroom.

I couldn't get past this tissue box with mother of pearl design. It was a bit of a disappointment as it's basically just a mask that you put over a paper box of tissues, but it still looks very pretty. I think it will look nice in my bedroom as well. It was crazy expensive (for what it is) though, so I'd think before ordering. I can't find it on the website but it was around 35€.

Missing in action is a grey bathmat I just couldn't make look good in the picture, oops! Overall I was pleased with my order - everything's a bit overpriced but the items are lovely.

I also placed a cheeky order on H&M home, which will probably be my next post. I have a tiny The Body Shop haul from the airport as well, so that will be coming in the next few days for all my beauty lovers. Hope you're keeping cool guys - this heat is killing me!
