We went to town a few days ago and we went to those oh so inevitable shops… Poundland and Primark – It seems impossible to go to town without visiting these establishments and it seems impossible not to buy at least Something!
To be fair, we got some fantastic bargains, and I actually went to Primark with something I actually wanted to get!
Poundland first. We got a few home bits, a few toddler bits and a couple of beauty bits.
For the boy we got a Pirate Adventure book, a duo of a football and a rugby ball (he’s a bit obsessed with football out of the blue at the moment) and an awesome giant bag of bubblebath! I love getting his bubble baths from poundland, so much cheaper than elsewhere and often more exciting too.
I also picked up a vanilla candle in a screw top jar, couldn’t beat this for £1, even the jar will be fantastic to keep afterwards. We also picked up four plastic picnic plates, which are homeware but they’re not going to be used as such; I’ve kept 1 for putting nail polish on for nail art and the other three are for The Boy to go as a part of his tea set. Lastly, four really pretty floral coasters. All of these things seem like they’re worth much more than £1 each!
The couple of beauty items I picked up were a ‘Bourjois rouge hi-tech lip tint’ and a Famous sparkle top coat. The lip tint is a weird colour but seems to be ok blended out and dried on. And the famous polish is gorgeous, it’s an iridescent polish with the tiniest holographic glitters in. Can’t wait to try it out.
From Primark it was two bargains:
I went in to buy the candle after seeing one similar on a post on Katie from ‘Beauty and the Baker
‘s post. They didn’t have the exact same one but the one I got smells divine and is so cute.Whilst I was in there, though, I saw this really cute polka dot dress for £5 – These £5 dresses are just soooo nice, well made, lovely style, lovely patterns and such an amazing price. I don’t have a polka dot dress… or I didn’t, I do now!
Here’s a quick closeup of the candle I picked up:
