This is the third of my Five under £5 posts, and I have to say I’ve become quite addicted to shopping around for them. What started as a bit of fun has turned into a great excuse to spend more time browsing – and buying – little treats, and although they won’t solve the world’s problems they might just cheer you up a bit.
This month I have been spoilt for choice with choosing my five things and am already nearly there with next month’s selection too. I’ve had such a lovely response to them that I’m even thinking of asking you to join in – it doesn’t have to be a blog post, it could be an instagram photo, twitter or Facebook post. What do you think – would you fancy putting a five under a fiver together too? If so, I’ll be publishing December’s post around the 7th so you have a few weeks to think it over.
Mini deer decoration, £3 Paperchase. Florence picked this when we were shopping one day and has since adopted it into her collection of Sylvanian Families.
C&B Salted Caramel Biscuits, £5, Booths. I bought these primarily because I liked the tin, but the biscuits are very good too.
Choc Shot Liquid Chocolate, about £2.50. This chocolate is 100% natural and can be used as a sauce, a spread or squeezed into warm milk and stirred to make hot chocolate. Sam loves this before bed and it’s become a bit of an autumn ritual. It is good though – I like a bit on my raspberries and yogurt. What a rebel!
Earrings, £5, Topshop. I just loved these little gold-coloured numbers. I don’t wear earrings day-to-day but like to put them in when I go out.
I just realised this could be counted as a sixth thing, but it’s more of a prop so I’m not classing it as a cheat! It’s this chilli plant, which was £3 from a local florist. I bought this purely because it looks nice but I have to say it seems pretty easy to look after so far. Such a vibrant colour too.
So what do you think your five under £5 would be? Join me for December’s post around the 7th of the month and you could be in with a chance of winning a prize.
