Some Everything Five Pounds buys

I haven’t really done much sales shopping this year. OK, well I’ve done some, but it hasn’t all arrived yet so I can’t share my spoils with you.

What I can share is my most recent buys from Everything Five Pounds, which is a veritable treasure trove of bargains all year round, not just in sale season.

Starting with this absolute zingy beaut of a (faux) leather jacket. I know faux leather can be a minefield, often resembling shiny crap, but you’ll just have to trust me when I say this is super soft and squishy, looks really good quality, and is a beautiful colour which will brighten up milder winter days and work into spring and summer too.

I think I was drawn to this dress because it reminds me of Christmas, which I realise is now a distant memory after a whole week back at work. I plan to wear it layered over a fine jersey polo neck jumper with ankle boots for office wear.

Love love LOVE this casual jersey jacket, which not only has some blingy stars on the front, but some rather dandy retro style embroidery on the back. Perfect for throwing on with jeans and a t-shirt for those inbetweeny days of spring, which can’t be too far away, can they?

Talking of spring, how lovely and easy to wear is this pale blue boho blouse? Perfect with leggings or ankle length skinny jeans, I’ll be chucking on loads of silver jewellery and some sandals with brightly painted toenails.

Lastly a couple of shoe purchases, because shoes are my favourite wardrobe items of all.

These 90s-esque platforms, which will be super stable thanks to the chunky heel and the buckled strap.

And, again thinking towards spring, these fringed lace up open toe espadrille ankle boots.

Anyway, because I had some Christmas money and each of these items only cost a fiver (clue’s in the name) it’s technically new stuff for FREE! And who can argue with that?

Have you been buying any sales bargains, or anything at all? I’m hoping my deliveries will arrive imminently, and then I can pick what’s staying, what’s going, and share some more buys with you.

Thanks, as always, for reading! x

A girl can never have too many pairs of shoes…

…so what’s a girl to do when H&M puts sale temptation in her way?

Buy, of course!

A girl can never have too many pairs of shoes

Starting with these boots, which aren’t exactly seasonal right now, but are:
a) a veritable bargain (real suede, for just £15!)
b) neutral
c) timeless

H&M tan suede platform boots

And then, their non identical twin, in the black, which are also:
a) a veritable bargain (real suede, for just £15!)
b) neutral
c) timeless

H&M black suede platform boots

And finally, leopard print ankle strap platforms, which need no explanation, but are:
a) a very veritable bargain (only £12!)
b) neutral (you can wear leopard with anything, honest!)
c) my favourite colour (what do you mean leopard print isn’t a colour?)

H&M leopard print ankle strap platform heels

All still available on the H&M website, if anyone fancies new foot furniture.

You are welcome.

My current favourite things

Nivea fruity shine lipbalms. These are just gorge on my lips. I reviewed them here.

Nive Fruity Shine

Selling on ebay. It’s such a pain but worth it when you make a few pennies (because that means guilt free future shopping by reinvesting the profit!)

Rodizio Rico. A Brazilian churrascaria in the Mailbox in Birmingham. Basically a full on meat fest. Men with meat on skewers carve it on to your plate at your table. I took my Dad for Father’s Day. He went caveman!

Platform sandals. Way easier to wear than you expect, because the height of the sole offsets the height of the heel. These are my most recent ones, part of a mini haul from from Matalan.

Turquoise and silver jewellery. Perfect combination, and surprisingly versatile. Looks great with a tan (which I unfortunately don’t have at the moment; thanks for nothing summer 2015). Lots featured on my Pinterest bejewelled page. This one is a recent purchase from ebay (I’m buying as well as selling!)

Silver and turquoise necklace

My Naked Flame balcony burner. A Christmas present from the husband. Fill it with burning gel and set it alight – it’s mesmerising to sit outside in the dark and watch it flicker away.
