A £20 Primark Homeware Haul

I absolutely love homeware, and Primark is one of the best places to pick up some really lovely little pieces. From the title, £20 may not seem like a huge amount to spend on a 'haul', but I managed to get six gorgeous items for that, which I think is an absolute bargain.

The pieces I'm most pleased with are two beautiful trinket dishes. They were down to £2 each in the clearance section and as I couldn't decide which one to get, I bought both.

The first is a plain round dish with the most gorgeous gold mermaid tail protruding from it, designed to hold rings and necklaces on each of the fins. The seconds dish has a scalloped edge and an adorable little pineapple in the middle. I'm going to keep one on my makeup table to hold lipsticks and the other on my bedside table as a decoration (although I haven't decided which one yet!)

The prettiest item I bought was a £5 lantern made out of copper wire bent into a geometric prism. It's not very bright as the lights inside the 'bulb' are little warm-white fairy lights and not filament lights, but it looks so cute on my bedside table in the evenings.

I also bought two other items that aren't pictured (for various reasons.) The first is a super soft grey memory foam bath mat with 'Gorgeous' embroidered into it for just £6. It's so squishy and I was hoping to use it as a mat in my doorway, however it's so plush that the door can't shut over it! So I may let my mum put it in the bathroom instead so as not to go to waste.

The second item is a pineapple and guava scented candle tin, however I haven't photographed it as it doesn't look too pretty right now. The wick struggled to light when I tried to use it, so I have instead scraped some of the wax out with a spoon and am currently using it in my wax burner. It honestly smells absolutely glorious, which is what I bought it for, and so I'm not too disappointed (plus it was only £2.50)

The last item I bought is a little more practical. For just a quid I got a baby pink cactus-print mini storage bag which I was going to use to take my lunch to work in, but I feel it's just too cute for that purpose now! Instead I'm going to use it as a beach bag when I go on holiday later this year as its the perfect size to keep my purse, sunglasses and sun cream in.
