Home haul ... I LOVE my newbies

Having picked up a few newbies for the home recently, I thought it was only right to do a little home haul post! I love seeing what people have been purchasing, I mainly watch YouTube video hauls, but as I don't do YouTube I'm sharing all here. I do have some new beauty newbies so look out for that in a post soon!

My first and one of my favourite things is my Primark carnival style light. I'm a little bit obsessed with these battery lights for the home and love copper so as soon as I saw this I had to have it. It's actually rather larger than I first thought, making it such a fab deal at £12. It's makes for a great feature even when not lit.

During the same shopping trip to Intu Merry Hill we popped into the fabulous Paperchase. I adore that shop, so many inspiring bits and bobs. On the way out I spotted the postcard stand and saw sooo many cute ones, me and my daughter loved loads. So we picked a few that we thought would go lovely in her new room, and we have since framed them all. Bargains at 70p each.

Since we have been changing my daughters room we have been on the look out for more books to add to our collection, and mini library (goals!). So if you love books you will be loving the next few items. We already have quite the collection but have added some amazing books recently.

We love children's classic books so when I spotted Mary Poppins on the Book Depository website that was a must. Up until recently I had never purchased from their website, but I have to say it's fab, postage is free in the UK and some of the books are great prices. This was only £3.75 and doesn't it have the most beautiful illustration on the cover, really sits well on our IKEA Mosslanda shelves.

More books from the Book Depository but via Amazon were the beauty's above, these are the Puffin Classics chalk editions. I have to say buying through Amazon is mighty annoying as you have to pay £2.80 each book for postage, but then some books are super cheap list price. So swings and roundabouts really. I thought these were truly beautiful and a great addition to our collection. 

For Mother's Day I received the most beautiful edition of Alice in Wonderland in the Barnes and Noble leatherbound book. I've been wanting more ever since, looking in TKMaxx most days as that's where my hubby found the Alice book. But I had a money off deal email from WHSmith's the one day and they were on a savings also, so I ordered these two that were on my WishList. I adore the Wizard of Oz stories and thought the Snow Queen and other winter tales sounds so magical. 

These leatherbound classics are the most gorgeously made and perfect keep sakes for our family. Having looked online I can see there are many more, but some are super hard to get as they seem to release different ones at different times. If you know more about this then please let me know. I would absolutely love to own the Narnia version and really want to add more to our collection. 

So that's it for my home haul. I have a few more hauls coming up, hope you like them.
