Haul | Back to University

9 September 2014

I am moving back up to university soon so I've been on the lookout for new items for my room, kitchen and bathroom. I have only bought a few items because I'm going into my final year therefore I have collected lots of home-ware over the past two years and have all the general items you would find on the 'take to university check list'. But I think it's important to go into each year with some new additions as it changes up the interior of your room, especially if you're staying in the same accommodation like myself. 
I love bright colourful things, as you may gather from this haul. I  naturally gravitate towards bright things but also as I'm away from home it's nice to have colourful things to make the environment more welcoming and homely. It's mostly very grey and constantly raining for most of the university year, especially up North, so a pop of colour always lifts my mood. 

Here are the details and there are a few click-able links: 

Trio of cannisters from Asda Living £1.50 (sale)  - I am in love with these cannisters and they were such a bargain as they were five pounds originally! 

easy comfort food cookbook - This is not actually a new purchase as I found it in my kitchen, but I'm taking this along with me for when I want to make some hearty food. Also I find it easier to follow recipes from cookbooks rather than the internet. I'm trying to eat a lot healthier and hope to carry that on whilst at university but this book will come in handy when I need some of that comfort food. 

Yellow speckled mug from Wilkinsons £2 - It's massive so will be great for soups.

Happiness mug from Wilkinsons £2 

Accessory Hanger from Primark £1. 50 (sale) -
It's looking a big dusty at the moment and I think that's why it was on sale, but once I've cleaned it up I'm using it to hang necklaces and bracelets. 

Incense sticks in Vanilla, Frankincense and Rain from Evolution £1 each 

Leaf  incense holder from Evolution £2 

Pencil case from WHSmith £3.99 

Shower curtain from Asda Living £5
