Beach Day shopping spree review

After Going to the beach on Wednesday, which wasn’t really all that in the end due to overcast weather, Kelly and I returned home with lots of goodies for our home.  We had visited various shops looking for specific items such as light shades, ornaments and a new picture frame for my late dog Kato.

I’ve mentioned in the past just how much I love B&M Stores, so when I noticed there was one in Redcar I just had to go in! Its always the same when I go in this shop – I start off carrying a hand basket and soon end up needing a trolley!  Anyhow, after spending around an hour in this store Kelly and I were not disappointed.  Within our trolley we had managed to get a teal light shade, beige vase, beige throw, cream throw, twig lights and a rattan heart for our spare room – all of which look desirable!

For my office I also managed to get a light shade, back support for my computer chair and that all important white picture frame for Kato!  We also bagged ourselves cream leather coasters for our bedside cabinets (perfect for when I have tea and toast in bed) and for our dining table we purchased a mulberry table runner and leather table mats.  Our table actually arrived on Thursday along with our guest room furniture – so Thursday was a day of flat pack DIY!

Dunelm Mill Shopping Spree Madness

With the sun shining and Trev at hand erecting our Birlea Lynx bedside cabinets, Kelly and I headed to Dunelm Mill with Shelley (Kelly’s mam). I was extremely excited on this venture, as I was a Dunelm Mill virgin.

With a budget of around £285 we wasted no time in grabbing a trolley and filling it to the brim. We browsed endlessly around the store looking at valance sheets, throws, cushions, lamps, curtains and mirrors. I was in home furnishing heaven in this place, mixing and matching furry cushions with chenille cushions. After around three hours of browsing we had decided on two gorgeous crystal style lamps for our bedside cabinets, a stunning silver freestanding mirror (which we will be securing to the wall once we have removed the stand from the back of the frame), various shape and size cushions, a luxurious bed throw, a fancy picture frame, a pleated valance sheet, a cream roller blind and of course those essential memory foam pillows. Unfortunately we didn’t see any curtains which struck us, and to be honest they were rather expensive. We got to the till and paid for everything then made our way back to the car.

Shelley parked up and was howling as she had realised that it was going to be a tight squeeze fitting the huge mirror in to her little Corsa Sport. In the end, Kelly and I were seated with the roller blind down our left side and this long thin mirror resting on our heads, luckily for me I benefitted from having the memory foam pillows on the back seats – so at least I had some support for my spine! What a way to end a fantastic shopping trip.
