New in// Uni essentials haul

Uni essentials haul
As I mentioned in my back to uni wish list post a while back, I'm determined to make my room really cute and somewhere that's relaxing to be this year. I'm not 'finished', but I think it's coming along nicely :) So here's a little haul of the things I bought that I'd consider 'Uni Essentials'. Most of them are pretty cheap and cheerful too. Some of these things I bought absolutely months ago, but I thought I'd round it up into one post. It's not exactly pinterest perfect, but I definitely want to do a room tour/plant tour of here too.

Plants// these make the room feel so much more homely and stylish. I have a couple of roses and a basil plant (which are so much higher maintenance than what I am used to, eeek) and a few cacti and succulents. I love my plant friends! I also tried my hand at propagating an aloe and my Flaming Katy plant from home- and the baby plants look so cute! I hope they'll survive :o Propagating plants is fun and all you need to buy is more soil- I repurposed some old jars to put my aloe babies in and it is pretty aesthtically pleasing, not gonna lie.

H&M Rug// I mentioned this rug in my back to uni wishlist post, and I finally got round to buying it. It's so gorgeous! And it was cheap, for a rug, at under £20 Perfect for hiding the dorm carpet. Also you get free delivery and 20% off at H&M online with Unidays, just saying.

Paperchase melon notebook// This is my vocab book for year 3 Japanese, it's so cute and the perfect size. Marcus has a matching one with bananas on it, which makes me v happy.

Hooks// These might not have looked anything fancy, but I bought some command hooks to hang up my hats. They're supposed to not leave any marks on the wall when you're done, fingers crossed that's true!

Japan poster// I couldn't resist picking up this vintage inspired poster from the poster sale at uni!

Paperchase post cards// These are only 70p so I couldn't resist picking up a couple when I was in town the other day. They're a cheap and cheerful way to decorate.

Mason Jars// I'm going to get a blender soon so I can have my smoothies in mason jars like a real blogger. Yeah, I'm basic. I just want my pre drinks to be aesthetically pleasing, ok? But actually. they are much sturdier than the tall glass I had before, and if you're as clumsy as I am. being difficult to knock over/ break is a definite bonus!

Umbrella// Fold up umbrellas are a must in the UK, and this one makes me feel really cheerful even in the rain~

Room diffuser// We're not allowed candles so I had to go for a diffuser. The one I have at the moment is called Passion flower and mango from Sainsburys- it's quite strong but smells fresh and was pretty good value.

Caffetiere and coffee// Making a proper coffee feels like suuch a luxury, and ground coffee isn't hugely more expensive than the instant stuff I was buying but it tastes so much nicer. If you're looking for something that will make you happy every day, buying nice tasting tea and coffee is a good place to start :) This caffetiere is from John Lewis, and when I was there I picked up a tea infuser as well.

Slippers// Speaking of things which make me happy every day, these were a present from Marcus, and they make me feel so cozy and cheerful. Thanks Marcus <3

Thanks for reading! Have you guys picked up any nice interior pieces lately? Where is your fave place to get home ware from? I'd love to know~
