If you’d like to join in with Five Under £5 you can head on over to Julia’s blog Rainbeaubelle and link up. It’s a great way to find cute bargains each month and I love sharing the things I’ve found.
I’ve been flying through books this month to the point where I have really had to limit my Kindle purchases as it’s getting out of hand. I bought The Red Queen for my Kindle several months ago now and struggled to get into it. Just a few days ago I started it again and just flew through it, I absolutely loved it and I’m not sure why I didn’t get into first time round, maybe it has a slow start. If you’re a fan of The Hunger Games and The Magician’s Guild this is a bit of a mix between the two – it’s an easy, entertaining read. At the moment this and it’s follow up book The Glass Sword are £4.99.
I nipped into H&M today to return some clothes I’d bought for the boys and ended up coming out with this cute yellow knitted headband which was £4.99 and the gold bar necklace which was on sale and was actually only £1 when I got to the till! I love anything in this mustard yellow colour and I was originally looking for a new bobble hat but this caught my eye. I’ve tried it on at home though and I’m not sure, I think it clashes a little with my hair but I’ll persevere.I went a little crazy in Home Bargains a few weeks ago buying stocking fillers for Christmas – they have so many Star Wars products it is perfect for Lucas. I always like to buy them notepads, pens, toothbrushes, socks, all little treats to go alongside their main Christmas present. I can’t remember how much these Star Wars gel pens were now but they won’t have been a lot. I got these for Lucas and some Paw Patrol ones for the twins as well as notebooks, pencil cases and rubbers. I bought a lot but as I need to get three of everything and I love getting it at a bargain price.
While I was there I also got this set of three little notebooks for me. I’ve been saving them knowing I’d need to photograph them so I’ve only just opened them up and found that one is lined pages, one is grids and one is dots which makes me really excited, I love dotted notebooks! I started my Bullet Journal a few months ago but I don’t take it everywhere with me, I thought these would be handy to keep in my bag to jot things down in when I’m on the go. They are super cute covers too and only 99p.
Even though it is early November I am still getting excited to see Christmas starting to creep into the shops, next month’s Five Under £5 will definitely have a few festive items!
