I love home decor. Whats there not to like about buying pretty things that make your place uniquely you- I mean thats what really makes a house a home. And our home should be our sanctuary, our happy place.
My boyfriend and I are looking at getting our first place and its taking ages to find the right place that ticks all our boxes. But in the meantime we’ve already started building up our home and it’s been so much fun!!
One of my happy buys this month has been the small popcorn bowl from Crate and Barrel at Ion in Singapore for S$12.95. Crate and Barrel is one of my favourite home stores in Singapore- they sell some really nice items. And I’ve been wanting this bowl for awhile even though I don’t eat popcorn lol.
Another shop I love in Singapore is Kikki.K at Ion, they’ve been having a big sale and the place has been crazy packed. I love the stuff there and how lots of their products focus on mindfulness and positivity. Everyone definitely needs a bit of that in their lives. I got this matching set of candles and mug from Kikki.K. The candles are 50% off at S$27.45 and the mug is S$10. They are a lovely red and pale pink and would brighten up any area of your house. I adore candles they add a touch of tranquillity to any space. These candles have a cute fun twist, the pink ones are covered with leaves, ladybugs and birds and the red one says ‘you glow’. How cute!! The scents are Clementine & Honey, Sandalwood & Ylang ylang and Peach blossom. Very exotic- my favourite is peach blossom. The candles are supposed to burn for about 13 hours each. The pale pink mug says ‘life is wonderful’ and has a red cup holder. Feel good quotes are always a nice thing to have around the house to keep you positive especially when you’re having a bad day.
I got this beautiful crystal candlestick from John Lewis in London when I was there a few weeks ago. John Lewis always has all kind of gems and they deliver some items internationally. This candlestick was also a sales item and got it at 50% off at £20 which I think is definitely a steal. I love this luxurious statement piece which will transform any dining table!
I also got this gorgeous book ‘Paris from a fashion eye’ by Megan Hess from Harrods in London for £12. You can also get it from Kinokuniya at Takashimaya for S$32.10. Paris is one of my favourite cities it really is the city of love and the city of style! This book is so chic and cute and the white cover with splashes of colour is sooo pretty. It’s divided into Play, Sleep, Eat/Drink and Listings. And I’m obsessed with the beautiful detailed illustrations inside. It really does add that je ne sais quoi to any coffee table!
And last but not least is this heavenly rainbow coloured Molten Brown bath and shower gel set from Gatwick airport that I got at £13 (it was on sale too). I love Molten Brown products they’re so luxurious and always so aesthetically pleasing. And lots of their stuff are really colourful and fun too. I love the colours of this set and the luxe silver caps. The various scents are Coco & Sandalwood, Delicious Rhubarb & Rose, Jasmine & Sun Rose, Heavenly Gingerlily, Rosa Abso, Vetiver & Grapefruit, Bushukan, Coastal Cyprus & Sea Fennel, Tobacco Absolute and Russian Leather. They would look perfect in any bathroom and I can’t wait to try them!
So these are all my January home décor buys, hope you like them as much as I do! X
