#MyDunelmBag - Dunelm Home Haul | £50 Blogger Challenge

#mydunelmbag, mydunelmbag, my dunelm bag, my dunelm bag blogger, dunelm haul, homeware haul

The lovely people at Dunelm's PR agency recently got in touch with me to let me know that I had been selected as one of five bloggers to take part in their My Dunelm Bag blogger challenge associated with their new TV advert #mydunelmbag and asked if I would like to take part?

If you've read some of my recent posts, you'll know that money(or lack of) has been quite a big issue with the whole "moving into my first home" thing, so this opportunity couldn't have come at a better time, and I am super grateful to be invited to take part. So I instantly replied with a "yes please!" - Thank you Dunelm!

The concept of the challenge was to create a new look for a room or area of your home by buying products from Dunelm, within a budget of £50! To help me with the challenge I was kindly provided with my own personalised Dunelm Canvas Shopping Bag , the new A/W 2014 Dunelm Catalogue, and a pretty little £50 gift card.

The A/W Catalogue was packed full of inspiration and decor themes/ideas and gorgeous new colour schemes. I picked out a few ideas of what I wanted to buy first but I literally couldn't wait to go shopping! We headed to our local store which is located in Wolverhampton and spent a good couple of hours browsing all the aisles to make sure I didn't miss anything!

With such a generous budget, I quickly realised that not only could I create a new look for one room, but I could re-vamp two rooms in our new house! The rooms we chose to do out are the bedroom and the bathroom!

BEDROOM
For the bedroom, I knew exactly what I wanted, and I loved the "Beautiful Birds" section in the catalogue so much that I had to go and get my hands on some of these items! I have totally fallen in love with Duck Egg Blue and pastel colour schemes lately, and thought this would go beautifully with the decor of our new home...

Duck Egg Beautiful Birds Duvet Cover Double (£19.99),
Duck Egg Beautiful Birds Storage Box(£4.99),

Wedding Lovebirds(£2.79)

Bevelled Edge Mirror Plate(99p), 

Decorative Heart On A Stick(£1.49)


The duvet cover is obviously the main part of this look, it looks super pretty and really good quality, especially as its piped around the seams. There are a range of colours in the duvet print, so plenty of colours to tie up with in the rest of the bedroom decor - light pink/dark pink/grey/dark brown etc. I then picked up a couple of the storage boxes, as I think these will be ideal to use as storage on our bedside tables. I then picked up a couple of small decorative pieces including the ceramic lovebirds, which will be sitting on top of the mirrored plate on a side table. Then finally I grabbed this really cute heart on a stick, which will look super cute in a tall stem flower vase!

You can find each of these items by typing in the names on the search box on the Dunelm homepage. Or you can see the full Dunelm Bedding selection for more ideas!

BATHROOM
I had no idea I that I was going to be decorating the bathroom, but as soon as I noticed the gorgeous Rose and Ellis bathroom collection, I had to have it all! I love the design and pattern it is very Cath Kidston-esque! The bathroom we will have in our new house is completely white all over, so this gorgeous pastel blue floral look will brighten it up a lot!

Rose and Ellis Clarendon Collection Shower Curtain(£7.99)
Rose and Ellis Clarendon Collection Lotion Dispenser(£4.99)
Rose and Ellis Clarendon Collection Light Pull(1.79)
Rose and Ellis Clarendon Collection Soap Dish(£1.99)
Rose and Ellis Clarendon Collection Tumbler(£2.49)

I managed to get most of the essentials with what was left of the budget. The main and most noticeable item is the shower curtain, but I then got the matching light pull which was a total bargain! Along with the sink items - soap/lotion dispenser, soap dish and tumbler, all with matching design.

You can find each of these items by typing in the names on the search box on the Dunelm homepage. Or you can see the full Dunelm Bathroom selection for more ideas!

Overall the items came to £49.50! So for just under £50 I have managed to create a new look for not just one, but two rooms for my new home!

If you read my last blog post you will already know that we are getting the keys to our new home on Monday 27th October, I have now added the photo's of what the products I bought look like in our new home! Hope you like it! :)

  10. This is such a great post! Can I just ask, although the bird print bedding is gorgeous, where is your original bedding set from (pictured at the top) as I really love it? xxx

    1. No worries, the original bedding was from Tesco a few years ago, unfortunately it doesn't look like they sell it any more, but I'm sure you'd find a similar one :) xx
