I found this necklace in a 50p bin by the till in the local Cancer Research shop. Their usually fruitful £1 rail had nothing that caught my eye, although they did have some lovely little side plates outside for just 50p each. I resisted!
It's quite large at just over 2 inches long, and has a mood stone attached, which went quite a lovely shade of blue whilst I was holding it. It is shown here on a huge H&M scarf I picked up on Saturday for just 50p too. I thought it was quite summery, and it is a massive piece of polyester lawn type fabric. I have actually considered making something out of it, but think I'll just stick with a scarf for now!
Next, bought these DKNY jean style summer trousers a few weeks back, again just a pound, and forgot to include them in a blog post!
As I'm a little short in the leg, I've had them in the alteration pile for a while, and finally got around to re-hemming them yesterday.
No signs of use, and I did think I was going to have to fight the lady behind the till for them at one point, she said she'd had her eye on them. I'm planning cushion covers at the moment, but am happy to just have this lovely fabric in my stash for now!
Lastly, thought I would treat myself, and was intrigued by a vlog from Caroline over at Mrs M's Meanderings, on some really cheap make up from a company called Makeup Revolution. I chose some eyeshadows, lipsticks and a kajal. The whole lot came to £10, and at that price I had no qualms with the p+p of £2.95. Ordered late on 17th and the parcel arrived today, just as I got back in from the post office! I'm really pleased so far, although I have combined the lipsticks together to get a perfect colour for me.
Here's what I bought
I bought two lipsticks, both were a pound, the colours are Treat and The One. Treat is the darker of the two. I also bought a kajal stick, it twists open and was £2. The single eyeshadow was £1 and the colour is Envy, to me it looks like a beautiful dark teal and is matte. The two eyeshadow palettes were both £2.50 and are baked eyeshadow. The one on the left is Bang Bang, and the shades of green/brown on the right is Beyond Eden. Beware of the website, there is so much to choose from you may spend more than you intended to!
Have you bought makeup online? If so, was it what you thought when it arrived?
