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. 

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 and they make me feel so cozy and cheerful.

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~
