It’s time for the March Five Under £5 already, February always seems to fly as it is that little bit shorter and as I write this the sun is shining through the windows so I really hope spring is here to stay. As always I’m linking up with the wonderful Julia from Rainbeaubelle and I’ve spent the last few days trying to remember a few things I have bought this month and gathering them all together.
The postcards are a set from IKEA I bought them before Christmas to display a couple then put the rest away. I just came across these two in a draw and thought they would be perfect to go on my picture ledges for spring. I’m sure they were only £1 for a set of five.
I am so in love with these two Barry M Sunset Daylight Curing nail polishes, I picked these up in Boots after seeing them on a Five Under £5 that Lisa did a few months back and I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say they have revolutionised my nail polish habits! I think they were £4.99 each but were buy one get one half price. The idea is you buy your favourite shade from the Sunset range (I went for Vengeance is Wine) as well as the Sunset topcoat and they do the same job as gel manicures without the UV lamp. You have to get the topcoat for it to get the gel finish and protect the nails and I have managed six whole days without chipping which is astounding considering my nail polish sometimes doesn’t even last a couple of hours! Even better they come off easily with regular nail polish remover. I am totally sold on these and will be going back for more shades.
I had ordered some things from Matalan for Lucas new bedroom so when I went to collect them I had a mooch around and picked up a few more bits. They have the cutest home and gift range at the moment with lovely spring colours. I bought this ‘Hello Sunshine‘ enamel mug for Lucas’ room to put is colouring pens in. I love it and it was only £3, they had so many nice hand-painted mugs I really had to stop myself from adding a few to my basket.
While I was there I spotted these giant chalks which I thought would be great Easter gifts, I don’t buy chocolate for anyone any more after seeing the sheer amount we receive so I try to go for something for the outdoors in the hope the better weather will be here. I can’t find these on the website but I only bought them a couple of weeks ago so they should be in store. The chalks were only £3 and I know it keeps my boys entertained for ages drawing outside on our patio. I bought a few sets for my three and to give away to family.
That is my Five Under £5 for March and everything I have picked seems to be a little brighter than previous months, It has been a subconscious decision but must be sign that I ready to brighten up the home and add a little more colour to our days.
