Poundland haul – Miners blushes and Children’s books

We went to town not long ago, whilst my best friend was visiting, and, of course, Poundland was on our list of destinations. It just seems wrong to not pop in there and look around, even just for the children’s books and the beauty. That said, I think that once we have our own place we’ll be popping in there for snack type foods and maybe household cleaning and the likes too.

There wasn’t a lot in the way of beauty, or not things that appealed anyway, but I did pick up one real bargain and I got some great bargain books for The boy too.

Firstly, my beauty bits:

I picked up  the makeup sponges because I’ve been meaning to get some for ages so that I can try out gradient effects on my nails, and 24 for a pound seemed too good to ignore.

Of course the mega bargain is the gift box of three, yes Three, miners blushes! These weren’t in the beauty section, they were opposite on another aisle, in a ‘gift’ section. So so glad I found them. Three miners blushes for £1!

As you can see there’s a super pale pinky one which is almost white, it has a lovely sheen to it so I can’t wait to use it as a highlight powder. There’s a really pretty peachy shade and a lovely pink too. Can’t believe my luck in finding these; they’re a lovely formula and I am impressed with the pigmentation.

How pretty do these look for 33p each! The peachy one looks a bit pale but that’s because it had caught the light and so it’s the shimmer in it, reflecting. Can only just see the palest one, but you can see how lovely the sheen is – Perfect highlight colour!

Our other bargains came in the form of some books. Last time we went there was barely any children’s books but, thankfully, there was loads this time. I asked The Boy if he wanted a Mike the Knight one, or an Octonauts one, or maybe Peppa pig. He chose a pop up book of a mermaid in a castle which seems an odd choice seeing as he’s obsessed with the Octonauts. As such, I let him get his castle book but I insisted on picking up the two Octonauts books, too as I knew I’d regret it, they’re fantastic and even more so at that price.

 I also picked up a handful of multipacks of soft mints as both The Fiance and I have become crazily addicted this month, but that’s a whole other story!
