Poundland Bargains!

Welcome to another post all about my latest bargains! I could literally spend hours looking through all the pound shops and boot sales hunting for bargains you never know what you're going to find! This week, I went on my first Christmas shopping trip of the year. It's only two weeks into November and the town centre was ridiculously busy, the queue in Poundland was about ten minutes long - good job I was feeling patient or I would have given up, it was like Christmas Eve in there!

I always head straight to the beauty aisles (after trying to enter through the no entry part of the store, oops). I was really good and managed to stop myself from buying more shampoos, conditioners and shower gels which I do not need! I bought a Rimmel Glam Eyes HD palette which I am going to give my mum for Christmas. They are dark shades which I know she likes, and seeing as it was so cheap it leaves me more money to buy her some other treats too! Next, I finally managed to get my paws on an OPI nail varnish - yes that's right! I had read about them being sold in Poundland but hadn't seen any for myself but then I found 'Shatter' by OPI which can be used as a top coat over any nail colour. I only found the one otherwise I would have bought more! I also bought Rimmel's 'Wake Me Up' instant radiance shimmer touch in Radiant Rose. It's a small sized tube at 14ml, but this may be the original size I'm not too sure! I'm looking forward to trying this out as it promises to give me a healthy looking glow. Then I picked up some exfoliating gloves as my old pair have been scrubbed half to death so it was time for a new pair! It's so much easier to exfoliate using these. The last beauty product I bought was Along Came Betty's 'Big Headband' to keep my hair out of my face when doing my skincare regime and makeup, I think it will be handy.
Non beauty wise, I bought a Coca Cola money saving tin. Nothing too exciting I know, but I love the vintage Coca Cola signs so I thought this would look pretty in my room. I will of course attempt to save pennies in it too. I then found these really cute retro style postcards which were a bargain at 50p each. I'm not planning to actually use them as postcards but to find a nice spot in my bedroom for them to sit as I think they look really pretty. I've saved the best until last. A mini sparkly Christmas tree - yay! Yes, yes I know it's not quite December and all that jazz but seeing as it was only a pound I couldn't leave it there! It's so gorgeous and I can't believe how much of a bargain it was!
Have you bought any bargains lately? x
