I’m kinda making going to the ideal home show at Christmas a personal tradition as I went last year. I prefer to go on my own because it is CRAZY busy and I can walk round all of it in just under two hours! When I first went I was literally blown away by how magical everything looked, being greeted by hugeeeee Christmas trees when you go in, it’s beautiful! As I went last year I kinda knew what I was in for but i had a lovely time all the same.
A new favourite from this year is that yankee candle were there with discounted prices!! i am so gutted i ran out of money so couldn’t get a large jar of merry marshmallows as it was only £15 but i am happy with what I’ve got and i have a little sample of merry marshmallows anyways 🙂
4 wicker hearts for £3, Glass pieces red heart £3, star candle lantern £3, 6 Christmas decorations £4, four red buckets £4, wooden blue bear £3, China glaze polish in visions of grandeur £5, pile of stuff came in free goody bag that i got with the show guide and lastly touch of silver twice a week brightening shampoo which i actually got in the boots at Waterloo station but i still got it today so whatever! i think that was £3.09 (in case your wondering, but you don;t have blonde hair?! it’s because i used colour b4 to create an ombré affect and as I’ve bleached my hair before it’s a bit brassy so i’m hoping this stuff makes a bit of a difference at least).
It all came to a total of £28.09 which i personally think is pretty good cause if you brought the lanterns, buckets, decorations ect in a normal shop you would pay way more and the china glaze is a ridiculous deal at £5 considering how much they are to buy normally and i have wanted a china glaze polish for sooo long and it’s the most gorgeous ruby red, the picture doesn’t do it justice! it’s a lot more deeper and kinda has a tint of magenta too. I also must add it is completely opaque in one coat and glides on like a dream! such a good formula and perfect for Christmas which is why i got it ’cause you can’t help but feel festive at this place!
Today i also got to meet my new baby cousin! he is the cutest thing i have ever ever ever ever ever ever seen! so today has been rather lovely! If you’ve never been to an ideal home show i really suggest you go, i got my ticket for free with a promo code so always look out for those and it can be a really cheap day out, depending on how much you spend in there haha. – Amy x
