Whilst I was having an early morning scroll through Instagram over the weekend, I spotted Julia’s #fiveunder5 series and promptly fell in love! Every month she shares five things she’s found, each for under £5, for a little fun and inspiration and invites others to do the same, and so here I am.
This month my five items are a mix of home, beauty and books…
Yankee Candle Tealights: Christmas Memories
These were £3.49 in the sale at Clintons, as they’re Christmassy scents. I bought another couple of packs, too, Candy Canes and Christmas Cookie. I love Yankee Candles, and I’ve been bought a couple of gorgeous burners over the last year so I have them burning every evening.
Sarah Bernhardt Peony
For just £1! From the pound shop, so totally and utterly irresistible! I adore peonies, and have several now. I just wish that they bloomed a little longer than they do, but then for £1, I’ll take the hit!
Bluesky Nail Polish Pretty In Pink
OK, so this was actually £5.50 from Tesco, though close enough, I think? And in my case it was actually free as the Husband had a Tesco gift card so I had this little treat!
Summer at Shell Cottage by Lucy Diamond
Another Tesco gift card treat. This was in the 2 for £7 offer, and it’s the first Lucy Diamond book I have read. I really enjoyed it, so I will be on the lookout for more.
Horrible Histories Books
These were all just £1 each from Poundworld. My daughter really enjoys the TV programme, and I do like to foster a love of history, so I grabbed these bargains when I spotted them there this week.
So there you have it, my five under £5 for January. Would any of these things have tempted you?
