ASOS New Homeware Collection | Maddox Empire

Usually this time of year is all about hearts, glasses of champagne, hot gal makeup & clothes but I kind of had to stop everything to write about ASOS’ new homeware/living collection on the new section of the site. Did anyone know this was coming because I really didn’t? Anyway I’m in love with the new stylish accessories for the home, so much so that I actually took time out of editing a Valentines video to spend a little time shopping! You can shop the whole collection HERE, I’m not affiliated in anyway  just FYI.

Here are my top 10 picks:

  • ASOS Supply Scoll Frame Mirror for £35.00 – is it just me or does this mirror just scream grown up Disney princess? Well, that’s why I had to have it; it’s elegant yet girly (in a grown up way), bound to add a touch of class to any room.

  • ASOS Supply Pom Pom Throw at £28.00 – This is so beautiful and so 2019, I need them to do this in a baby pink or cream/white and yes, I would buy all 3. I adore blankets an these look super snuggly but lightweight as the listing describes, I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

  • Zuperzozial Bamboo Biodegradable Set of 3 Hanging Plant Pots just £17.00 – This beautiful bamboo piece is stylish, very eye catching and natural. Everything is included to set up right away, it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for to spruce up my kitchen a little.

  • Umbra Set of Concrete Wall Planters for £25.00 – I love these gold toned & concrete plant hangers. You can place them anywhere and can be used for a multitude of things, not just plants although they do look completely adorable with these little succulents in!

  • Kiss Me Love Hearts Kiss Me Light at £19.99 – Millennials everywhere will swoon over this little love hearts ‘kiss me’ light. It’s super cute, safe to touch unlike traditional neons and it’s already mounted so there’s no tricky bits to try and deal with fitting it to the wall etc. Also would be a good little Valentines gift, just saying…

  • Flamingo Candle ‘Hotter Than Hell’ in Pina Colada only £12.00 – who doesn’t like flamingos?! As we all know I love them that much I’ve decorated my hall way with them, so when I seen this I knew that I needed it in my life. Make a bold statement with this candle and the scent is perfect for the cup and coming season.

  • Chickidee Matte Gold & Pink Cutlery Set £14.00 – How beautiful is this cutlery set? This is a statement for anyones kitchen and if you ask me it’s a pretty good moving in gift if you’re giving a special someone a little key to your place this V day…
    Screen Shot 2019-02-04 at 14.52.47.png
  • Kado Copper Metal Straws for £9.99  – Remember when people used to think that doing a little bit for the planet was a little too much effort? Well not anymore, especially with these metal straws in a Rose Gold finish. They are just so pretty and they’ve been calling my name every since I laid my eyes on them.
    Screen Shot 2019-02-04 at 14.58.30.png
  • Sass & Belle Good Times Only Mug  for £9.00 – Well I like rainbows (must be a gay thing), I love gift boxes and I like mugs for nice things like hot beverages so it’s a yes all around from me!
    Screen Shot 2019-02-04 at 14.58.38.png
  • Disney Dumbo Mug for just £12.00 – drum roll please! I have saved the best until last with this little guy. I love him, he’s stolen my heart, take my money, thanks & bye. Honestly what more can I possibly say?

Christmas Date Ideas 2017 | Maddox Makeup Company

Tis the season to be jolly and romantic of course so here’s my Christmas date ideas 2017! Now is the time to take action and do the things you probably cant do all year round, it’s exciting and it gives you an excuse to cosy up together – if you needed one that is…

  • Ice Skating – for this one I say find an outdoor pop up ice rink, surrounded by lights and festive joy! I’m only being semi sarcastic but honestly they are a little more fun than an indoor rink this time of year because they tend to be a little more bumpy than the smooth, freshly buffed surfaces of that indoor rinks have. This way it gives you the chance to get a little closer and laugh at each other attempting to act like a pro on an amateur surface.

  • Christmas markets – obviously you need to do this whilst you can! The Christmas markets are only around for a limited amount of time and regardless of whether it’s your first date or you’ve been together years, it will give you plenty to talk about and look at incase of awkward moments – which hopefully there won’t be any of. Plus you can drink, eat & shop to your hearts content! P.s this is also a good time to be chivalrous buy them a little special something that they like whilst browsing – it’s memorable and thoughtful.

  • Reindeer/Deer sanctuary – I know that I’m suggesting outdoorsy type activities but hear me out. This will not look prettier at any other time of year, you want the frost on the ground, the crunching below your feet, you can walk around with some hot cocoa and search for a great souvenir likes some antlers whilst watching the animals in their habitat.

  • Take a trip – ok I know this time of year can be a little crazy but this is why you should take sometime out. If you’re scrooge then by all means book the lakes or somewhere hot for the weekend but if you LOVE Christmas then I vote Disney. Yes there will probably be loads of kids but let’s not pretend you wouldn’t love it as much as I do. Get involved, go crazy, have some festive fun!
