Summer style with TKMaxx


It really is supposed to be Summer right? Instead here in Croydon it has been grey skies, windy days and I have resorted to wearing tights to work again as its been that chilly. We have still managed to get out and about but more bundled up than the Summer Holidays should be.

The team over at TKMaxx asked me to head out to be my local store to pick up some items which say Summer Style. As we live in a flat we don't have an outside space (but the outdoor lighting aisle did make me swoon a little) I headed to the area which makes me happy - home ware.

Summer to me says - cocktails and ice cream, in that order and if you can combine the both then I am a happy lady!!

Firstly - how lovely is this "bag for life" - that is a summery print if I ever saw one. I will be packing this up and taking it away with us to carry swimming stuff etc about (even if we are only in a caravan in Weymouth!)


I picked up these happy things to add some summery style to my kitchen.

The mason jar cocktail shaker was a particular bargain reduced down to £2 (as the Margarita mixers were missing from this one) but I needed (first world issues) a cockatil shaker and this one is pretty lovely.

The plastic palm tree print glasses are a great size for serving cocktails in or in the case of the kids lemon squash with fizzy water - a current favorite of theirs. These were also in the reduced shelves.

The Bar Plus Tropical Cocktail mixes are something new  - according to the instructions you just add rum. And rum we have.

The Ice Cream bowls were something which jumped out the shelves to me. I did see other that were more "realistic" in design with chocolate sauce and sprinkles but I loved the pastel shades on these. They are a decent (aka large) size to be able to fit in a good ice cream concoction (ice cream, fruit, sprinkles......)

The teal bowl is actually made of metal. Its lovely and deep - a nice serving sized bowl for those additional extras on your meal - like tortillas, the odd bit of cheese or even just for eating popcorn from in front of the TV.

Go check out your local TkMaxx for a real summer bargain - they had some lovely outdoor cushions and plenty of bright summery bags and purses to really brighten that wardrobe at a lower price.
