I love the Argos home ware range- it always has on trend, good quality, affordable pieces. When we moved in to our house, we furnished most of it using Argos! It was just so useful being able to get the styles we want, at prices we could afford, and having branches nearby made it really convenient too. Therefore, you can imagine how thrilled I was when they very kindly offered to send me some of their items from their home ware range to review!

How amazing is the birdcage tea light holder?? The style and the detail is just gorgeous- I absolutely love it! In fact, I love it so much I am considering buying several more to use as table centre pieces for our wedding instead of traditional flowers! I can imagine draping strings of pearls through the bars, and perhaps adding some silk flowers or vintage brooches. I may use little wooden pegs to attach the table numbers written on luggage labels to the bars. I think it would be just beautiful! And at £19.99 it is an absolute bargain. I can't say enough good things about this product. I love it!

I think there is something really elegant about this little clock. It's actually an alarm clock, and I love the simplicity of it. It's a lovely soft grey and I love the style the numbers are written in- I think it's a beautiful font. I like quite minimalist, yet pretty and feminine items and I think this fits this style perfectly!

I think the crochet cushion is another item that could be described as minimalist yet feminine. I really love crochet items at the moment, and this cushion is a lovely shade of cream that will go with anything, with chunky buttons to stop it being too plain.Our bed has rather a lot of floral and pattern going on too (sorry, David!) so this cushion balances it out nicely!

I am in love with these beakers! How retro and lovely are they? The pastel tones are so pretty- I love the hint of mint on the inside of the large one (mine) and the soft pink of the small one (Lily's!). Argos now has a selection of ex Habitat stock at very reasonable prices and these are part of that range. They are just perfect to serve some milkshake in with some pretty paper straws! I know this sounds like such a gushy post, but I actually have nothing negative to say about any of the items, I am so happy with all of them!

Here's the exciting part! All of these gorgeous items totaled at just pennies off of £50- so Argos are very generously offering a £50 voucher to one of my readers!
