The new season means a new wardrobe, and if you’re anything like me you’ve probably already made some major clothing swaps to welcome summer. Stuffing duvet coats away until the winter, bidding a fond farewell to turtlenecks and saying hello to bare legs – I’ve already treated myself to a couple of new second-hand dresses and a thrifted midi skirt alongside a new pair of sandals. But my wardrobe is already bursting for the summer months so I’ve decided to turn my attention to something else that could do with an update: my home. These days you don't need to get up a step ladder with a tester pot to make some major changes to your surroundings – in fact, it’s never been simpler. And with a few well-selected homeware pieces it’s a breeze to get your home looking as good as new without forking out the big bucks.
I’m a complete home decor addict – I cannot stop buying it and you’ll always find me browsing online for new and second-hand finds. When it comes to affordable and unique homeware buys, eBay is my go-to. eBay has already been making headlines since it was officially announced as the ITV2 Love Island sponsor when it catapults back onto our screens on June 6, promoting a more sustainable way to shop compared to previous years. And the same applies for homeware - whether it's an item from an independent brand or a second-hand find, I’ve already discovered at least 10 things I’m adding to my cart as we speak.
