Flamingo Gifts

Wednesday, 13 May 2015

I've always enjoyed shopping for homeware, but lately it's taken on a whole new turn and I've become a bit obsessed. As much as makeup and clothes excite me, there is something about interiors and making your space look as pretty as possible that appeals to me so much more. 

As you can probably guess, my favourite interior themes are pastels, florals, and all things vintage-esque. My room at home is a Cath Kidston dream and I'm hoping when I move out for good I can still add a bit of that candy sweet prettiness into my new home. I know it's not to everyone's taste, but I absolutely love it.

I find browsing online for homeware the easiest way to go about it, and a website I discovered recently that ticks all of my homeware boxes has got to me Flamingo Gifts. Absolutely perfect for quirky, unique and adorable gifts and homeware bits, I could honestly spend hours browsing this website. So, when I was recently sent a few bits from the lovely people at Flamingo Gifts, I just had to share. 

First up - say hello to my dream French Blue telephone*. I have wanted one of these retro phones ever since I was about eight years old and I used to play on the one my big sister had (yes, you can have hours of fun pressing those buttons - well, you can when you're eight). There is just something so vintage-retro-sixties-Barbie-Dreamhouse about them that made me always want one in my home, and this blue colour goes perfect with my decor. It's really easy to set up and has the best vintage ring to it ever - trust me. I don't think it's a bad price at £39 either, and you can get them in a host of different colours. 

In keeping with the retro theme, I just couldn't resist this amazing VW Campervan wash bag* - I've always had a thing for these retro campervans and I'm always on the look out for more storage solutions for my endless collection of beauty products, so this seemed the perfect solution. It's really roomy and well made and just looks amazing sitting on my dressing table. 

Finally, I've been wanted to start up a collection of biscuit-shaped cushions (because, why not?!) for a while now, and this cute-as-a-button Party Ring biscuit cushion* kicks off my collection perfectly. I have visions of a multitude of biscuit cushions perched on my sofa at some point, but for now this one is happily on my bed. I have a fixation with food-related homeware items, and with cuter-than-cute things like this on offer, I don't think that will change any time soon. 

Have you bought anything from Flamingo Gifts? They honestly have SO many amazing items, and they stock the fabulous Flamingo Candles too!
