Latest Purchases #66 – IKEA Haul

Apparently today is ‘Blue Monday’, the day where a lot of people start to abandon their New Year Resolutions and generally feel quite rubbish about January being so cold, dark and bleak. That’s rather depressing to read and I think it’s a load of rubbish – don’t let a date or the media dictate when you should feel miserable or happy. Yes, it is always that little bit more of a challenge to get out of bed on Mondays but don’t beat yourself up about it!

In an attempt to stay cheery, I thought I would share my weekend purchases from IKEA as we all love a good haul post, don’t we?

I went with nothing particular in mind to buy so could just feel free to browse and pick up a few items that caught my eye, including:

  • This lovely stag front door mat; the perfect welcome when you come over for a brew


  • Some wrapping paper. IKEA have a great little stationary collection now with cool notebooks, washi tape and wrapping paper. I picked up a few rolls of this brown paper style which should keep me going for a good few birthdays.


  • New bedding. Since we decorated our room with a yellow and grey colour scheme, we found we don’t have much in the way of bedding that really goes. I picked up two grey and white sets for an absolute bargain; the striped set was £13 with an IKEA Family Card and the wiggly set was only £4.50!

  • New cushions. An easy way of adding a pop of yellow into our bedroom to keep the colour scheme consistent.


  • Milk bottle vase. Only a pound and very useful for my blooms.


Not a huge haul, but a few nice bits and pieces to add to our home.


About hannahhotcakes

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
