My favourite finds: For the love of a £3 pot

Welcome to the next in my series of how to justify your random purchases to your husband. Two posts in, can I really call it a series? Let's go with it. I'm sure there'll be many more to come. Well, I know there'll be many more to come. I just can't help myself.

I initially popped in to my local Matalan store to pick up a few bottles of their vanilla room diffuser. At two for £6, they're the best quality AND the best price that I've come across. It's worth stocking up.

Home trends: Gorgeous greens and a touch of tribal

Home trends: Gorgeous greens and a touch of tribal

I know that we're in the dismal depths of winter but let's have a little chat about the new Spring Summer 17 homeware range from Matalan. It has just hit the shops and it's a little bit special. Gorgeous greens, zesty yellows, and a touch of tribal influence for those of you who like your interior decor with an exotic flavour. These are pieces that are going to add a much needed touch of colour and comfort to your home while the days are still so short and dark. Don't get me wrong, I like the cosiness of winter, layering blankets over beds and sofas, and warming my hands on hot cups of tea, but I also like to introduce lighter, brighter products and fabrics in to my home at this time of year to combat the post-Christmas comedown. It stops me from missing the glitz and sparkle of December quite so much.
