A weekend of bargains!

After another lovely weekend, I thought a nice way of drawing it to a close would be to share some of the bargains we managed to purchase before it was too late!

I'm always a sucker for a bargain and sometimes for items I didn't really 'need'. Whilst in ASDA we found this cute little bed set for a whole five pounds! I will have to update this post when it gets put on my bed! I really, really want a faux fur cushion to go with it now, or a throw!

I also decided to pop into Boots this weekend to scope out a new make up remover. I adore the Micellar waters by B. range and Garnier but thought it was time to test out something different.  I found this delicate little number at a bargain price of £1.39!

This cleansing water is soothing with Aloe Vera being one of its main ingredients. It's consistency is watery, however, on application with a cotton wool pad, lifts dirt and make up easily off the face. It is kind to your eyes as well so you don't have that uncomfortable sting if there is an accident! I also find that after using this twice now it is fantastic at lifting waterproof mascara so there are no dark marks or smudges left under the eyes. Yep, I can finally say goodbye to that morning panda look, after thinking I had removed it all the night before!

I think it is quite a moisturising product as well; in the past some cleansers or removers of make up have left my skin red raw, dry or sore. Having sensitive skin means I am always concious of the ingredients I use on my face.

As it is January I am trying new products that might be a bit healthier; after a bit of a heavy Christmas! I love having coffee at the weekend with Sean as a treat. In fact we have had a mini coffee haul courtesy of Taylors of Harrogate again. This little selection should keep us going a LONG time!

I definitely recommend the 'Brasilia' (strength 4) and 'Indonesia' (strength 5 with a strong hint of cocoa).

Anyway, I digress.

I figure that whilst I enjoy a coffee at the weekend, I do not necessarily need to be drinking as much tea and coffee at work that I currently do. So after perusing through the large selection of alternative teas I found this little beauty!

Clipper do a lot of different teas but I think the 'rise and shine' appealed to me the most! This is a lemon tea and I am hoping that this will offer me that wake up call we all rely on at work! I'm feeling positive so I will give it a go this week and update you all soon!

What bargains did you get this weekend? I would love to hear if you saved some money this weekend buying something you love or maybe something alternative to what you are used to??

Thank you for reading,

  2. Thank you for your kind words! My aim is to share my bargains and experiences. I'm not a rich girl so I will always scope out the best deals. :)
