So you're going to uni soon, and you have a whole mix of emotions. Part of you is buzzing with excitement whilst another part is a bag of nerves, packing up your life for a whole new adventure. By now you already have a long list full of the important necessities you must take with you when you go, including enough underwear to last for weeks and as many clothes as you can fit in your bag.
There are other things that perhaps you haven't even thought about yet. Maybe you don’t want to admit it to anyone just yet, but it's guaranteed: you are going to miss home at some point sooner or later. You are going to want your family, a hug or a familiar face. So, you absolutely need to have nice homey things that remind you of your loved ones.
Below are just a few of our favourite "Going To Uni" items that we can guarantee will brighten your Uni room (and your day when that home-sick feeling is kicking in!)
Multi Frames are a fantastic way to display lots of your cherished photos - our favourites are the Heart Multi Frame (£20) and the Love Collage Multi Frames available in White and Black (£14.95 each) although there are lots more stunning multi frames in store and online to choose from.
Perfect for adding a delicate touch we have vintage effect Cream Rose Garlands (£8) and sweet fairy lights, ideal for draping around bed posts and mirrors. Our fairy lights come in pink or cream roses (£9.95 each), or adorable butterfly lantern style lights too (£14.95).
Cushions are great for snuggling up with and can be fab display pieces too. We have animal cushions, shaped cushions, square cushions, quoted cushions... Personally my favourites are Owl shaped cushions available in green, purple or red (£15) and these large beautiful embroidered butterfly cushions (£24.95)
Clocks are highly important - you don't want to be late for a lecture! We love this Vintage Roses Alarm Clock (£15) and this Vintage Atlas Map Clock (£19.95).
It's also important to keep a tidy room - which is where our retro Coca-Cola inspired waste paper bins come in handy (these are on SALE in stores whilst stocks last for just £3!)
Candle lover? We have just the right fragrance for you. Whether you're in to fruity, floral, citrus or spicy scents, pick from our gorgeous candle range and you won't be disappointed. Our Heart & Home Soy Wax candles are now on SALE (all way under half price and going fast so be quick!) and we have new jar candles arriving in all stores this week!
The last set of items shared with you here today are a must have. There's nothing like having a brand new bag to take with you on your brand new adventure. We have large roomy bags in our Flutterbyes Collection perfect for carrying books and papers such as our Folder Bag and our Carry-All Bag (£20 each). It's also particularly nice to have the matching Toiletry Bag (£12) if I do say so myself, to store all of your cosmetics together in a cute and stylish way.
I hope this post has been of some help to you (or your child) if you are about to go to Uni, or even if you just want some moving out or gift ideas. There's lots more gorgeous items in stores and online so please feel free to take a visit!
Love, Flutterbyes. x
