THE 5 NEW THINGS YOU HAVE TO BUY FROM KMARTLifestyle
09 August 2017
Nothing gets me going more than when someone sultrily whispers, “let’s go to Kmart”.
You may agree to disagree, but as far as I’m concerned, Kmart is truly our answer from the Gods in regards to affordable, chic homewares. But I had a thought – how many times can you redecorate your house?! Surely, there’s a minimal market here? It seemed I answered my own thought when I moved in to a new place only in February and recently realised that I’ve already redecorated my lounge. Three times. Much to my partner’s disdain. And it’s all because of Kmart.
Homewares aside, need makeup? Kmart. Need a new knit? Kmart. Need a new bag to cart your Chihuahua around, or a unicorn outfit for said Chihuahua, or an inflatable crown, and a glamping tent to put it all in? Kmart. But that’s another story for another day.
Needless to say, it was hardly a chore to peruse the aisles on my recent Kmart visit, scoping out my five very fave buys for the bathroom, kitchen, lounge, bedroom… You name it. Get that shopping list ready, because here they are;
1. THE VELVET CHAIR - $45
Don’t throw your next three paychecks out the window on an overpriced fad chair. Let’s be honest – we rarely actually sit on them, they’ve become much more of an inspiration corner of a bedroom or lounge. So save your pennies for another day, and pick up this soft velvet chair with rich blue hues from ya local, chuck a throw on it, and poof! Just amazing.
2. THE CIRCULAR PLANT STAND - $22
So simple, yet so inspirational. The new circular plant stand from Kmart is a must-have on the decor list and can be kept inside or outside – I’ve mentally mapped out how it will sit near my balcony table, with candles and greenery…. Oooh.
3. THE PINEAPPLE FAUX PLANT - $4
Oh my giddy aunt… This may be the cutest wee faux pineapple plant ever and it looks totally adorable on bedside tables, on your bookshelf and next to your handsoap on the bathroom bench. As for me, I’ve got a crate shelf and I’ve dotted several of these cuties around next to photo frames of cats. So fetch. Oh, if you missed it, you can pick up one of these wee treasures for less than the price of your soy cappuccino.
4. THE ROSE GOLD LOOK CUTLERY SET - $19
Totally “in right now” but classically elegant, this rose gold set is a winner on the dinner table. I actually love the look of these so much that I likely won’t use them and will just brandish the knifes and wave them around a bit in pure joy, or keep them in a clear glass jar to admire their slender figures. They’ll last and keep really well though, as they’re made of stainless steel.
5. THE BAMBOO BATH CADDY $17
The homeware that launched a thousand lips…. Now everyone who’s anyone knows about it, which means you better run into store and grab yourself one quick! Not only is this item pretty much pure luxury on the eyes, it’ll very much help you live your champagne lifestyle on a beer budget. Pop it on your bath with a book or candle (not both, because danger) and a glass of bubbles for a wild night on Instagram. #justgirlythings
