H&M is one of my favourite stores on the highstreet – their clothes are affordable and there’s always something I’ve got my eye on, so when they launched their Homeware range I knew it would be dangerous!
Firstly I picked up a glass vase (you can never have too many vases, right)? I adore it as it reminds me of a science lab with it’s shape & the text on the front. Unfortunately it doesn’t hold many flowers as the neck is so thin but I’ve been using it to dry out some beautiful roses & gypsophila.
I also picked up a little tea light holder in the same glass style with the scientific text on it. When I was little instead of being a ballerina or a pop star, my dream was to be either a detective or a scientist making potions so these additions on my desk make my inner child very happy.
(FYI, now I’m older I’ve come to realise that one of my dream jobs would to be a cosmetics scientist, creating perfumes to be specific. I can’t imagine anything more incredible than being a perfumer and the ‘nose’ for fragrances).
I also picked up a printed marble mug and ceramic chopping board. These were with the intention of holding makeup brushes & displaying jewellery/makeup rather than being used in the kitchen and i love them both!
As I said, I purchased these online, but I also visited the store in Westfield and want to say I really wasn’t terribly impressed. Apart from metal wire baskets I wanted, there wasn’t anything that particularly stood out to me and Andrew was huffing and puffing at everything I picked up (shopping with boys, eh)! Hopefully I’ll have a better in store experience next time!
Have you ever picked up anything from H&M? What’s your fav highstreet home store?
