I feel like we are finally starting to clear our heads after Christmas and now the shops are filling up with Valentine’s and Easter treats I thought I’d join in with Rainbeaubelle‘s Five Under £5 again this month. I still haven’t bought much the last month but I nipped out to Aldi today and found a couple of things to share so I rustled up a few more I had around the house.
I went to Aldi to buy their new Lacura eye cream and serum, I’d seen them recommended on Let’s Talk Beauty and if Vicki recommends something I know I’m going to love it. They have just come out today in the special buys and the eye cream is just £4.99! The packaging is gorgeous and I’ve finally realised that I need to start using eye cream regulary so I’m looking forward to trying this out. While I was in there I spotted these pink, white and red fairy lights and they were just £2.99! I’m so happy with them, I still have some star lights up from Christmas so I’ll replace them with these for the Spring season.
I shared a few books that I have in my reading pile for Spring and this book was one of them. I bought it in Amazon’s 3 paperbacks for £10 offer so although it is over £5 individually it is cheaper if you buy it in the offer! One – Sarah Crossan is a young adult book about conjoined twins, it always shows up in my recommendations so I wanted to give it a try.
I also bought these little Bookplate stickers from Waterstones, they were reduced to 99p and I thought they were cute. I pass on a lot of books when I’ve finished reading them that I don’t want back but there are a fair few that will always have a permanent place on my bookshelf so I’m going to start labelling them, like a complete book nerd. I can’t find them online but Waterstones has a few other designs if you fancy getting some.
Lastly, I am hoarding these Kinder Egg Joy treats. If you have kids no doubt you’ll have seen these on YouTube. They split in half and one half is the toy and the other is filled with delicious gooey chocolate – it tastes just like the inside of a bueno and you get a little plastic spoon to eat it with! My boys were so excited when they spotted them, they call them prizes. I found them in poundland on offer, 2 for £1 which is cheaper than everywhere else I’ve seen them. They make a right mess when they eat them but it’s amazing how excited they can get about a kinder egg. One of these has my name of it, I had to buy four in the offer!
