I have been meaning to join in with this for the last few months now, as it looks SO much fun! Julia, my good friend, who writes the beautiful blog Rainbeaubelle started this lovely idea of picking five things for under £5 to share. Isn’t it a lovely idea? So here are mine…with a few love hearts thrown in seeing as February is the month of love after all!
One// Postcard. I adore these little postcards from Paperchase! They are so cute, and make great gifts, or simply look good framed. At 0.70p they are super cheap too! I am starting quite a collection now, and love a good quote too! This love hearts one is gorgeous. Just perfect for Valentines Day!
Two// Say it with flowers. I am SO ready for Spring, are you? I bought myself these tulips today, in multi-colours, to cheer myself up after having a cough for over 3 weeks. Urgh. They are so beautiful and the colours are bright and stunning. The have instantly lifted my kitchen. Do you think my Hubby will get the message and also buy me flowers too for the day of love itself?! This bunch was £3.50 from Tesco.
Three// Journal. This spotty heart journal from WHSmith had me as soon as I saw it. At £4.79 it was just within budget! It looks very striking and pretty too. Great for recording all my ideas for 2016, and for making copious lists! I do like a good list! I am such a sucker for a pretty notepad.
Four// Coasters. These monochrome striped coasters from Dunelm have certainly brightened up my home! At £1.99 they were a bargain. I am going for a more Nordic look in my home now; minimalist and modern, and these work so well. I love them for holding my much-needed morning latte.
Five// Nail varnish. I love the mini nail varnishes from Max Factor, great for on-the-go looks. And this colour (soft toffee) is lovely. It was £4.99 from Boots. I love browns and pinks, they feature heavily in my wardrobe. I might wear it for our date night in because Hubby and I celebrate 8 years of marriage on the 16th of the month, and so we will be having a nice meal in and a few glasses of bubbly! Perfect.
So there are my five choices. All brightening up my home and life and little things I have picked up over the last few weeks.
Do have a fabulous February!
Love, Jess x
