TK Maxx haul


Bit of a different post to cosmetics, but I love interior decor & I know lots of you do too. Plus, just sharing these gorgeous finds, so you know where to go to get some amazingly beautiful things.

I decided I needed new storage boxes for when I move into the new uni house. My room is a sort of box itself so I need lots of storage solutions. I went into IKEA..came out with a gorgeous bed throw that I've been lemming for ages, a cutlery holder & another cushion (I swear I have a cushion obsession, I have about 7 for my bed so far, it's a weakness!). So I come out of IKEA with no storage boxes pretty or big enough for my liking, TK Maxx next! I love TK Maxx for home furnitings, it has some amazing pieces, always the best place to go for something that's super pretty & usually quite unique (ie not an IKEA print lol).


I found this wicker basket, didn't need it, but err the Cath Kidstoneqsue print had me at first glance & I had to have it. I now have the decision of either having it at home or in my uni house! I also found some gorgeous V&A bedsheets for £13!! These I decided to keep for home since I'll be redecorating soon & these would be beautiful. The mug was also a beauty at £1.99, I feel rather grannyesque with it, lol. Then the box, ohhh the box. I don't know what I'll use it for, maybe jewellery, but I just had to have it. I mean look at it!



So these are my recent buys & no doubt I'll ant to get more things, pictures for my walls, shelves, more pretty things.... & hopefully some boxes!!

OOo I am going to TKMAXX tomorrow i'm not sure how good mine is going to be though. Is it really hard to find amazing stuff in there because it looks like the majority of stuff in there is tat that no one wants!xxx

Oooo I love EVERYTHING!!! It's all so pretty, I'll have to have a nosey in my local I think. I haven't been to TK Maxx for yonks as it always resembled a crappy jumble sale and I could never see anything worth buying but maybe it's improved since then... Ooo I want to go NOW after seeing your gorgeous buys!

@lola & @whitebutterfly01 ohh no, you don't have it? I know the US have TJ Maxx (I think that's what it's called!)

@claire loise they have some amazing boxes! They have big wicker ones, but the smaller cardboard ones with prints/pictures are fab!

@lisa I know what you mean, I think it's improved a lot over the years, but you still need a good hour or two to rummage through everything.

@glam I am I love the boxes from there =)

@superficialgirl ahh I know, I've turned all floral & girly, hehe.

@little floral button you lucky thing! specially when they have all the gems every now and then!

@Amy aww, I find that with some of them, but we seem to have some really good ones here. I haven't heard of that shop! I'll keep my eyes peeled though, a homeware shop full of tkmaxx home stuff would be amazing!!

@Simplynatural77 Hope it's at your local! They have two sizes, they're just beautiful =)

Aww thank you so much hun =)
