The Homesense Haul and Event

Before last week I'd never once been in a Homesense store. Now, don't get me wrong, I love homewear as much as the next person, there just isn't a store particularly local to me. (But where I live nothing is particularly local, so that's certainly not a criticism). Anyway, last week I was invited to a bloggers event, held by the lovely Southampton Bloggers, at the Homesense store in Hedge End, and I certainly enjoyed my first visit.

On arrival, we were greeted with drinks and nibbles, and were very lucky to be given a £20 gift card to spend in store. While at the event I met some really lovely bloggers, and even caught up with Helen, who I haven't seen in agessssss. (Go and check her out if you haven't already!) The store was huge, and absolutely full of gorgeous homewear bits. They literally sell a bit of everything, so are definitely worth checking out if you're after some new pieces. I mean, I saw everything from gorgeous stationary to chilli sauces, pet toys and faux succulent planters.

Now, on to the good stuff, what I bought... As with the nature of Homesense, I unfortunately can't link any of the items as there tends to be very few of each item, and hence you can't shop online. But I thought I'd show you my buys nonetheless. My entire haul only came to £27, whatta bargain!

The larger wire basket was only £9.99 and the other was £4.99. I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to use them for, but I just couldn't leave them behind. While wandering I also found the two plant pots which were only £3 apiece. I bought the fake flowers to display in one of the pots, and I still can't believe how well priced they were? The white blooms were £1.99 and the foliage was only £2.99, amazing.

I haven't posted an OOTD in soooo long, so I thought I'd include a little one in this post. I wore a stripy cropped Topshop tshirt, H&M trousers and Primark sandals. These trousers are my absolute favourite at the moment, so much so that I have them in both black and navy. The best part is that they're only £7.99 a pair!!

Have you ever been to a bloggers event?


  1. Absolutely LOVE the wire baskets! Might have to pop on over to my store to find them!

    1. Aaaa thank you Caitlin, let me know if you do! x

  2. Oooh cute post! I’ve never been to a blogger event, but aspire to one day! I hadn’t previously known much about homesense but they seem to have some pretty bits. I’m after some sort of plant or fake flowers, they seem to brighten up a room! I imagine those wire baskets would have a lot of uses too. Thanks for sharing! :-) xx

      Yessss, I'd recommend heading to your local store for a wander x

  3. Homesense is such a great store, we have one in a local retail park and it's one of my faves for Homeware! I'm glad you had such a nice time at the event :)
    The outfit is great, I love the trousers, such a bargain too!
