The Uni Homeware Haul

... So Far

Lots of photos today and (hopefully) lots of home inspiration for you! I've left my blog rather neglected the past week but now you've seen just how much shopping and organising myself I've been doing you should understand. I move into my halls on Saturday and will have an ensuite room, share my flat with 7 others and cooking wise be self catered. Perhaps I should be at the stage where I'm getting excited but really there's nothing but nerves at the moment so if anyone's got any tips to combat them it'd be much appreciated. Obviously as a student, none of these things break the bank with the majority being either from Asda, Tesco or Dunelm Mill. I'm going to list links and prices of the more interesting and my favourite items but if you want to know about anything else, just leave me your question in the comments. If not, simply tell me what your favourite item is I've picked up and whether you're now after any of these. I think my personal favourite has to be the 'Unnecessary Item Fund' coin tin (£2.50 here) simply because I know that's what I'll use it for! 

Anyway, I hope this gives you some ideas and I'll be back to more regular posting as soon as I can.

  1. You've got some lovely things! I love the mugs and bowls. I loved buying things for university, I went totally over the top and took to uni so many things I didn't really need, but the shopping part was so much fun! As for the nerves, I just kept thinking everyone is in the exact same position and feeling the same nerves as you're feeling. When the initial meeting everyone is over, it'll be so much fun.

    1. Thank you, I've definitely been using shopping to distract myself from feeling nervous so far! And yes it's very true that people are in the same situation, just I worry they'll simply handle it better than me haha xx
