Sorry for my lack of posts lately, I’ve been watching far too many episodes of The Undateables on my iPad in bed (how had I never seen this before?!). I’ve also not been shopping since Boxing Day so I haven’t had much blogging material, but I’ve collected together some of my most recent pound shop purchases, including some branded beauty buys and cute homewares. I picked up these four Rimmel beauty products all in one sweep at my local Poundland store recently! I was really pleased to have found them, any my mini haul included the Scandaleyes gel eyeliner, Colour…

Christmas is coming! Here’s one of my first festive blog posts (I’ve already showed off my Christmas jumper!). Poundland is one of my favourite stores at this time of year as they get new deliveries of all kinds of goodies and this year they have an amazing range of Christmas bits. Not the usual cheap and tacky bits, they have some actually nice things in! Check out these Christmas pretties… I couldn’t resist this cute little star shaped ceramic dish. I thought it would be nice to put Christmas sweets in or a candle. Dunelm sell a really similar one…

Perhaps a slightly dull blog post, and also similar to the one I published a few days back, but I felt the need to share with you some of these bargain buys I’ve picked up recently! Home Bargains and Poundland are pretty much my go to shops for all things cheap and satisfying. Although Poundland has been a little bit disappointing for me lately, I’ve seen some people get some great stuff including Rimmel Apocalips and their Stardust glitter nail polish (see here)! So keep your eye out for some branded beauty goodies in the pound shops! I picked up…

Whenever I’ve seen beige or nudey coloured nail polish in the shops, I’ve never picked one up. I always thought they looked a bit boring and gross, and brighter shades have always appealed to me much more! But I recently saw my friend Isabelle with nude nails and I really liked it. I think she used the Barry M matte nail paint in nude vanilla. So when I saw a similar shade in Poundland by Maybelline called ‘Porcelain Beige’ I thought I’d give it a whirl.. they’re £4.50 in Superdrug! It’s from the Forever Strong range and it claims to…

Last weekend I went into Bedford town centre instead of my usual shops in Milton Keynes, and I came away with loads of new goodies! They have a Poundland, Pound World, and a 99p Store in Bedford, and for once I actually didn’t pick up anything in Poundland, but got lots from the other two stores. I don’t usually like the 99p Store as I used to find it really tacky and it doesn’t help the store in Bedford is underground, dark, cramped, and has an odd smell. But I’m glad I persevered into the cave shop as I got…

I love a good bargain, especially when it comes to homewares! I’m obsessed with buying house stuff, even though I live at home with my parents. I have a bad habit of buying all sorts of things just because it’s pretty, or cheap, or usually both. Here’s what I’ve bought lately from my favourite cheap shops Home Bargains, B&M + Poundland. These gorgeous little mugs were only 99p each from Home Bargains. I just bought the blue one at first and then picked up the pink one on my next trip! They’re super cute and have a very Cath Kidston…
