I love these posts. I am a very nosy person by nature. And so I am fascinated to see what my fellow bloggers have purchased for under £5.00. I often get tempted to go out and buy some of their wonderful finds.
I’ve been meaning to join in for a while. As always I have found it hard to get myself organised. I could probably purchase 5 items from Poundland – but that would be cheating.
Welcome to my first Five under £5.00 post. This month’s finds are a little random but I think they are fabulous so, hey, I am just going to roll with it.
Five under £5 – March 2016
My first product is for Little Miss H. And is this gorgeous pale green bow hair clip from Marks and Spencer, which I bought for £2.00.
We are currently growing Little Miss H’s fringe out. It has now reached that annoying stage where it just hangs in her eyes and irritates her. I have bought a variety of hair slides to try to persuade her to let me clip her fringe out of the way. This cute green bow seems to be in favour at the moment.
My second purchase for Little Miss H is this bright and beautiful rainbow belt, which you can see in the photograph above.
Little Miss H is very tall for her age. She is not yet 3 but she is already wearing 4-5 years trousers and jeans. These fit her perfectly for leg length but they sometimes fall down because she is quite slim. I decided that a little elasticated belt would be the perfect solution.
I am also obsessed with rainbows. And when I saw this rainbow belt, which was £3.00 from the Little Bird range at Mothercare, I knew I had to buy it. It looks adorable with jeans.
As I keep on buying Little Miss bits and bobs for her hair, her hair accessory collection is now quite vast. In fact, it has out grown its current home and needs to up-size.
I love this brand and I couldn’t believe that this tin was such a bargain. The bright colours and shape make me smile and Little Miss H’s clips, ribbons and hair bands are very happy in their new abode.
I then decided it was about time to buy something for me.
My next purchases for under £5 are a perfect excuse and/or accompaniment for some me time.
A copy of my favourite magazine (Red Magazine – £4.10) and some Jelly Bunnies (£1.00) to nibble on whilst lusting after all the fashion that I can’t afford.
I have been craving Jelly Babies throughout this pregnancy. And a packet does not last long when I am around.
But this feels wrong. A pregnant lady gorging on Jelly Babies feels like a scene cut from The Silence of the Lambs.
However, I feel that I am allowed to eat as many Jelly Bunnies as I would like. And I have!
These gelatinous rabbits are only around until Easter. I don’t know what I will do once they are no longer gracing the shelves of our local Sainsbury’s.
What do you think of my thrifty purchases for this month? Will you be venturing out to buy any of them?
