Poundland Jewellery Mini-Haul

May 6, 2015
Poundland jewellery

Ring holder – £1.00 I love a bargain and on any given shopping trip simply cannot resist a browse around all and any pound shops in the  nearby vicinity. I was aware that Poundland (the undisputed king of all pound shops!) had launched a jewellery range last year sometime, but I’ve never really seen many things that much grabbed my interest. A lot of it looked cheap and nearly all of the pieces in my local stores were gold toned…

January Sales Haul

January Haul001

You know when you probably shouldn’t go shopping but you do anyway? Well Pants and I decided that a touch of retail therapy would be the perfect pick-me-up when we went into the city to send my lovely boyfriend back to university in Holland after the winter holidays, in fact the proximity of Debenhams to the coach station means it was all sort of meant to be. I knew right away that Christmas money would almost certainly be sent to…

Sunday Scents: Chupa Chups Strawberry Scented Candle

Chupa Chups Strawberry Scented Candle

Being a vegetarian the sweets of my youth are often completely off limits due to frankly revolting ingredients of animal origin, but Chupa Chups fruit lollies are one of the treasured few that are not only vegetarian but vegan!  I’ve been able to continue loving Chupa Chups sugary scents (and flavours!) well into my cruelty free lifestyle so when I saw this candle in Poundland I knew it was definitely for me! I wasn’t expecting too much from it, and it’s…

Jess Glitter Nail Varnish – Rock Chick, Ibiza, Tiger Lily, Celebration & Alfresco

Jess Glitter Nail Varnish

 I’m a sucker for a bargain and can never resist poking my head in Poundland to see what manner of lovely things I can purchase for only one hundred shiny pennies. I often pick up Revlon and Sally Hansen polishes for a fraction of the RRP, but skip past the lesser known or own brands. I’ve never heard of Jess before, but the Poundland website tells me they are a new and exclusive range which would explain why I’ve not…

An Accidental Haul

We set out for our little shopping trip yesterday with a thrifty mindset and a small budget. Four hours later that all went out the window! We’ve added links where the items are available online, otherwise you’ll have to hit the highstreet and track them down yourself! Red links are Amie’s treats and blue are Gemma’s treasure, black things we both picked up! In our defence we did start off well so first up is the charity shop treasure we…

Primark “Rock Chic” Accessory Haul!

September 30, 2013
Primark Accessories Rock Chick

I’d actually only planned on popping in to pick up some £5 fake uggs to laze about in, but I couldn’t help a tiny little look at the other bargains on offer! Although I frown in despair when I see a fashionista sporting a bullet belt or a trvegrym band shirt that they’ve never heard of, I do love being able to pick up “alternative” accessories at high street prices! Okay so I only really wanted the black and silver…

Calvin Klein Tempting Glimmer….in POUNDLAND?!

I love a bargain, and more and more often I seem to be finding cosmetics of high RRP in Poundland of all places! In the past few months I’ve found Sally Hanson, Revlon, Rimmel and Max Factor items all for only a pound, but this I think is the steal of the century! The original price for these was around £15.50 each, so that’s £75-ish of make-up for a fiver! I picked up (L-R) Vinyl black, Retro silver, Vintage metal, Bare…

NOTD: Emagerd nail wraps how do these work arrrghhh!

Zebra print nail wraps

As I sat down to do my nails today I thought…finally….at long last….today is the day I try nail wraps. I have quite a collection building up but I’m always too scared to  try the nicer ones out as they only have one use, and I don’t want to mess that one use up! I grabbed these disco zebra offerings that I picked up in Poundland ages ago and tried to figure this wrap thing out. Turns out it’s not…
