Five under 5

Five under £5 for March

Five under 5 March

Five under 5 March

My five things under £5 this month are a bit of a random mix, but then that’s kind of why I started this feature, to showcase those mini treats throughout the month and style them in a regular post. I’m so happy to see so many other bloggers joining in every month too, they always give me ideas for things I could feature the following month.

Whereas there was a slight Valentines theme to last month’s post, this month it’s turned into more of an interiors post, starting with the gorgeous succulent plant I bought from my local florist Eden Floral Design in West Kirby for about £3.50. I love these plants and they seem quite easy to look after, so I’m hoping this one will stay in my home a while! I’m giving it some special care after a conversation with my friend the other week, about how plants have feelings and can communicate with the stars. What a lovely thought! So this little succulent is getting lots of chatter from me lately.

Next up are a couple of purchases from Primark. I popped in on my lunch break from work the other day looking for a shirt for Sam for World Book Day, and although I left without a shirt I ended up with these cool copper coat hangers (£3 for a pack of five) and this cut glass candle (£2). There’s a bit of a trend for copper accessories right now so I couldn’t resist these hangers, and I know I’ll be using them in outfit posts soon so that was the perfect excuse to take them home.

Candle from Primark

I nearly always light a scented candle in the evening so can never have too many, and this one was a total bargain. I’m sure the scent might not live up to the more expensive ones out there but it looks pretty.

Do you ever see something for kids and think, I want that for me? Well this time I ended up just buying this little kawaii cloud necklace in M&S and wearing it myself! It was £3.50 and I know it will end up in Florence’s room before long as she is taking after me as being an accessories queen with an eye for a bit of bling. Yes, I know she is still only two!

Finally, the postcard from Paperchase says it all – Live, Love and Take Pictures. They have such a cool range of cards don’t they and I have loads dotted round the house and stuck to my fridge!

So that’s my Five under £5 for March. If you’d like to join in you can with a blog post or just a photo shared on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. Just tweet me and let me know you’ve linked up using the hashtag #fiveunder5, and take the time to comment on a few other people’s posts.

Until the 5th of next month,

x Julia

    Oh, I adore all of these. I would have kept that necklace for myself too. It is so cute. And I also love that cut glass candle. What a bargain. It is beautiful and looks like it should be much more expensive. Thanks for hosting lovely. I am thrilled to link up for the first time. Hugs Lucy xxxx

    I love everything that you have chosen Julia. Succulent plants seem to be all the rage at the moment. I adore the necklace from Marks and Spencer. I have only just discovered the postcards from Paperchase and have just put 3 of them in frames for our new playroom. Infact I was very nearly going to include them in my 5 under £5 x

    I do love those hangers Julia! Great for some clothing posts! And that necklace is so unbelievably cute! I would so wear that too! I may even have to pop to my local M&S and see if they have one 🙂

    Love a bargain and the little succulents are so cute. They’re pretty much the only plant I can keep alive and apparently they bring you money 🙂 #MarvMondays

    I love that little cloud necklace, M&S is getting a whole lot cooler recently! I would definitely want to keep it for myself too but it would look very cute on Flo. I need to try and get to paperchase for some more postcards, I never seem to get the chance to look properly when I have little people with me 🙂 xx #Fiveunder5

    Those hangers are absolutely mint and I love the glass candle – I think a trip to Primarni is in store! I saw a gorgeous zebra bed spread in there the other day, they are really stepping up their homey stuff, and its so bargainous! x #fiveunder5

    […] I am joining in with Julia’s #fiveunder5 series from Rainbeaubelle once again this month. I really enjoyed having a browse through everyones treasured bargains last month and even felt compelled to hunt out some of them for myself. Every month Julia shares five things she has found that month, each under £5. Check out her most recent five under £5 this month here. […]
