Budget Copper Home Accessories

Since first posting about my love of metallic home accessories, that fleeting affair has become a fully fledged obsession. More pointedly, copper home accessories! Copper accents make any interior instantly appear more cosy, while adding a touch of scandi style or industrial home style without much effort at all. Accents and accessories are a brilliant way of introducing some freshness in to your decor without having to spend big, which is fantastic if you're anything like me and change your home accessories season to season.

Recently I was looking for a few budget copper home accessories and happened to notice one store in particular really killing it with this trend. Whether you're aiming for cosy or scandi style, George at Asda have everything you could need and at affordable prices!

Copper Globe / Copper Wall Clock / Copper Succulent / Copper Hi Ball Tumbler / Copper Bell Jar Lamp / Copper Wine Glasses / Copper Leaf Plate / Copper Photo Frame / Copper MirrorGeometric Side Table / Succulent in a Copper Pot

I cheated a little with the inclusion of the geometric side table as it's more of a brass finish but isn't it stunning? It comes in at £79 and is the most expensive item listed here. I think it's worth the price tag given that it's glass topped. The beautiful copper globe is showing as out of stock on the website at the moment but I've spotted it instore and it's just as striking in reality so I'd highly recommend checking your local Asda Home because at £15 it's quite possibly the home bargain of the year for me.

Wanting to test run the copper home accessories trend but you're not quite ready to incorporate copper accents into the likes of your living room? Then why not start with your bathroom or the kitchen? Kitchens and bathrooms are the perfect rooms to deck out in copper accents teamed with deep bottle greens for an industrial / botanical feel. These two trends complement each other in such an aesthetically pleasing way - in fact, I've chosen to redecorate my bathroom in this exact combination!

If you happen to be in the market for some budget copper home accessories, I'd thoroughly recommend checking out the range at George at Asda. Prices start at just £2, so you can kit out any room you choose without being hugely out of pocket.

Beauty | Empties

In all my years blogging there is one style of post I've yet to write, which is surprising considering it's one of my favourite types to read. Every month I pore over these posts, reading with curiosity the details of products my go-to bloggers actually used. Reviews are fantastic and a great source of opinion but I find empties posts to be more of a tell as to which products have been used in their entirety. How often have you seen a blogger chat about a product only for it never to be mentioned again? This is a way to combat that. To give you a glimpse into the products that I use up and either never purchase again or hastily restock when I'm running low. These are recommendations that I live by personally so I hope you enjoy!

Beauty, Empties, The Style Guide Blog

Please keep in mind, being my first empties post this may be a little longer than the usual but I'm hoping it will be a frequent instalment here on The Style Guide Blog. I've kept it to just Beauty Empties this time around and trust me, there are some ride or die products in here (for me anyway!).

Plus Size Fit and Flare Winter Coat | Simply Be

Winter coat season has always been an exciting time in our family. Since before I can remember, I would have always gotten a good winter coat and as I grew older I found more and more care went into selecting that piece of clothing. Fast forward to recently turning 33, I find I still put as much effort into securing a good winter coat around this time of year. One thing is for sure... there is more choice than ever before - especially on the plus size winter coat front!

The one type of coat I've always been drawn to is a fit and flare style coat, because I'm bigger on the bottom than I am at the top, this shape provides what I want in a coat, neat on top and a nice skimming skirt on bottom. When Simply Be offered to let me choose a winter coat, I went straight to their Premium Fit & Flare Coat and though I did browse through others, I knew this was the exact shape I'd been looking for.

This coat spoke to me on a number of levels.
