A little January sales haul

Pastel blog sales haul
It seems so long ago now - January always seems to last for ages haha! - but shopping the January sales is one of my favourite parts of the year. I get a bit overly excited and even created a post Christmas sales 
wishlist! Here's what I picked up in the sales earlier this January, excluding this bell sleeves top.

I'd been admiring these gorgeous wooden letters from Urban Outfitters for ages - they are so gorgeous but were too expensive including shipping, I couldn't justify it and even contemplated having a go at making my own! Time passed and it was just an idea consigned to my Pinterest board until I happened to come across them again, reduced this time, while browsing the January sales cue squeals of delight

I immediately searched for an 'O' but, there being a small selection left, I opted for a 'Q' instead! the closest thing I love mixing pastel prints with touches of boheme, to create a cosy, rustic, almost Scandi feel. The warmth of the wood also stops the pastels becoming too cold. I had a wonderful time on Sunday evening in the #romanticgals chat, learning about everyone's dream retreat and decorating style!

I also ordered this huge mug from Urban Outfitters, with it also in the sale. It's so pretty and exudes rustic, bohemian vibes! The pattern reminds me of tree bark and it has a beautiful glossy finish.

I've been lusting after this calendar for so long, it's so pretty! Featuring adorable illustrations by Danielle Kroll, it was originally £24 from Anthropologie, but was reduced to an amazing £5. I managed to scoop it at £10 and am so in love with the gorgeous designs, each collection matched to each of the seaons.

I found this adorable little earphone jack on Blippo while ordering some stationary papers; the miniature coffee cup is so cute! There are many different designs and you receive a randomly selected one on ordering. I couldn't resist, I love the element of surprise and am so happy with the one I received.

It's so darling! I have a thing for miniatures and the doughnut even has little rainbow sprinkles on top. Love how the little mug is filled too - and oh the handle! Perfect for coffee/hot chocolate lovers.

I found this Philosophy shower gel in my local TK Maxx, Christmas Cookie scented. It's of such a good size and was only £5 in the sale! It smells heavenly, buttery, sweet and creamy, just like cookies baking.
