Chalk Board Canisters - Matalan // Coral Mirror - Matalan // Grater - Matalan // Tongs - Matalan // Chalk - The Range

Today Matt and I woke up late, well 10am and that's late considering we usually wake up at 6:30am work days. Knowing that we had nothing planned for a change we did the usual of pottering around some shops. The reason behind heading to Matalan was supposed to be for work clothes for me, but we didn't end up buying any clothes and dropped a small amount on the home-y items in the sale. 
The first things that took our fancy were the tea/coffee pots where you can write on the chalk board on the front. That was me sold so we bought three. I like it because as you can see we don't have a normal tea one, it's peppermint tea because that's my tipple of choice. They came in at a bargainou £2.50. At only £2 the neon coral mirror is just perfect because a) the colour is awesome and b) it has the magnified side too. 
We needed to replace a couple of kitchen utensils so picked up a bright grater and a bright pair of tongs which were 2 for £3. We also got two really soft throws for the lounge which I am currently snuggled under and they were only £2.50.
The Matalan sale was awesome, I seem to have posted about this shop a fair bit recently but this was the normal store and not the clearance shop!
After that we had a filthy Mc Donalds and headed to The Range to buy some chalk to write on the pots!

What did you get up to this weekend?
My last week in my current job - ahh!




  1. I really want those chalkboard jars from Matalan but the colours don't really match my kitchen!

  2. Love those coffee pots, really cute idea! :)
