A little bit different...a home haul?


That stupid black thing is really annoying me in this photo..o




I'm one of those people who constantly browses online and adds stuff to their online basket and for a while now, I've had my eye on lots of stuff in the home section of Urban Outfitters. Some of their clothes are nice, but most of it, is way over priced (even their sale things). But I made use of the sale and picked up the above.

I thought the love frame would be cute on my shelf and I've recently come to near completion of having my room finished, so it's just a little touch. I think I'll put make up brushes in the mug on my dressing table; I'm a sucker for a cute mug. And the last two were more or less impulse buys. For the last few months I've been keeping a diary, just to document "my life". How exciting. And I've seen this book pop up n a few blogs and I just wanted to have a read as I'm so interested in the blogging community.

£3.99 for standard delivery is disgraceful; I can tell you I was not a happy girl. For the express delivery it was a tenner! Who has a tenner to spend on next day delivery; well not me anyway! As with all online purchases, I had a quick google for "Urban Outfitters promo codes" and received hundreds of codes, lots and lots didn't work. However, I did find one for a cheeky 10% off and it worked. I'm not sure if it is still active, but if you've had your eye on something, it's worth a try. The code is:  'SS13WEB' and it does work on sale items.

What do you think of Urban Outfitters and my little haul?

  5. You got some lovely things :) I have the mug with L lighthouse on
    Sometimes if you see something on the UO website, search it on eBay. It's usually from a cheaper seller with free delivery.

  11. Great haul! I'm always on the UO website and like you I much prefer the home section although the American website is so much better for stock, sucks! I'm with you on the delivery charge, good thing you found a promo code. Anyway love the frame, how cute is that?! I may need to pop over to the UO website right now. :)

  12. I love UO but rarely buy their home things, I really like that diary and the idea of keeping your make up brushes in a personalised mug! Might have to give the site a wee skek now! xxx

  21. Agreed - UO is totally overpriced and I'm definitely one to take advantage of their sales, too! You scored some lovely things. I love the 'love' frame. So adorable :)
