Getting Eco and chic at HomeSense

Cardiff interior

Recently I was invited to have a little look around my local Homesense in Cardiff, I knew it was owned by TK Maxx and stocks some amazing interior goodies but until now had not had the time to pop in but one thing is for sure is that I will be back again very soon.

I really didn't know what to expect in terms of shop layout, stock etc but the store is really clean and fresh with a clear layout, making it very easy to find what you need. I loved all the individual and unique items they had and I truly believe in a store like this you could pick up something you would be hard to find anywhere else.

I love these retro chairs

Another thing I was pleasantly surprised at was not only the designer pieces such as Dior and Ralph Lauren but also a lot of ethical and eco products, which is what I love in my home and stocked up on during this trip as Green products can be quite expensive but with up to 60% less than normal retail prices I made the most of it.

How amazing is this Scotter wicker chair!

Being on two floors the store had something for every room from the kitchen to the bathroom to the lounge and bedroom with some lovely fabrics, sofa's, chairs as well as recipe books, kitchen utensils, wall canvas's and beautiful packaged food that would be perfect for a gift. The store also suited any kind of budgets with little nic-naks being as cheap as a pound up to some chairs being a few hundred.

A few things I picked up

I was on a mission to find a new frying pan and with a little money to spend I managed to get some amazing things for just £30, including an All Natural Soy candle, a Eco bamboo spatular an environmentally friendly frying pan, Laura Ashley garden gloves and a little treat for John in the form of a Ralph Lauren bathmat - can you believe it, all of that for £30!

I love my new frying pan and think it fits in perfectly with our current kitchen, although we are in-between houses the things I picked up will be going with us for sure and once we have finally found our new home I cannot wait to visit Homesense again to pick up something special for it.

I also got to meet another lovely Cardiff based parent and lifestyle blogger Emily from TwinMummyandDaddy, check it out if you have time

That's me :)

I was given a voucher from Homesense to try out the whole shopping experience, my views are 100% my own.
