Home Sweet Home Brunch (and win £100 to spend at TK Maxx!)

Poppy-Loves-TKMAXX-Home

To say that I was jetlagged when I arrived in Seattle, is a gross understatement. But, take that to a whole new level and you’ve nearly got to the state I was in when I arrived home in London on Friday morning.

I could barely see straight I was so tired… but I had to stay awake. I was on a Keep Awake Mission, determined to not let the jet lag beat me… so I abandoned my suitcase full of dirty laundry and headed out for a walk in the sunshine (sunshine!) in Walthamstow.

As I walked, I felt the sunshine hit my face and I started to feel like myself again.  A key indicator of feeling like myself is my tummy rumbling. Thoughts of food filled my brain and before I knew it was a planning a Home Sweet Home brunch with LM, with eggs and hash (potatoes) and crusty bread and piles of clementines….  and THEN I passed TK Maxx and its beautiful perfect brunching homeware aisles called me…

I was powerless to resist ;)

I love the colour of this vase – I usually go for plain glass but I couldn’t resist this beautiful amber tone…

I picked up so many beautiful pieces at a fraction of the price they would usually be, from all kinds of  high end designers and brands. TK Maxx’s Home section has oodles of designer accessories and soft furnishings  – you can really transform your house into a home for far less than you might think.

I LOVE this skillet that found. I baked eggs on potato, bacon and onion hash… the perfect jet lag remedy.

I even found some heavy weight cotton napkins and a tablecloth! Perfect for Spring…

Every few minutes, another TK Maxx worker would come out of their stockroom, wheeling a trolley full to the brim of more home ware – apparently there are extra large deliveries of home products in at the moment. I started waiting by the doors for them, like I do at parties by the kitchen, waiting for the canapés ;)  You’ve got to be quick! Once it’s gone, it’s gone… and I saved well over £100 on this trip as the products were such amazing value.

I found a pink shell dish – it also came in a gorgeous blue, but once I saw the pink, there was no contest.

I’ve been looking for a chopping board like this for ages…

How pretty are these gold rimmed glasses?!

You can never have a jug that’s too big. And this jug is huge! Love it…

It was a bargain bonanza and in my jet lagged state I may have got a bit over excited… but I’m ever so pleased I did. These are items I’ll keep forever, and I’m already imagining future parties out in the garden with all these gorgeous pieces.

Gorgeous jars for storing my granola…

… and jars with pretty lids too…

A beautiful scented candle was the cherry on my brunch cake.

Take it from me, next time you’re jet lagged, or feeling a bit unlike yourself, get yourself down to TK MAXX for a spot of retail therapy. It works an absolute treat – the laundry can always wait. And on that note, I have £100 TK Maxx gift card to give away!

Want it? Just leave me a comment below!

Good luck. And now, I’m off for a snooze….

  1. What a brilliant selection of bargains you got! I love the homeware section of TK Maxx, I’m sure there are far more real bargains there than in the fashion aisles! My real star buy was a few years ago when I got three wonderful Portmeirion Christmas serving dishes for about a quarter of the normal price, and now the whole family looks forward to seeing them every Christmas.

  2. I love TK Max – very easy to get over excited in the homeware department! I am a big fun of dressing up brunch with pretty stuff and making an occasion out of it with my daughters x

  3. What a beautiful selection of things.
