Bits & Bobs

Second of my scheduled posts, hello! I should hopefully be out & about, eating lunch or doing a bit of shopping right now, but I thought I'd share a few bits & bobs I picked up a few weeks ago in TK Maxx!
First up are these gorgeous books, aren't they lovely? The covers are so delightful, that even though I've really no need for books like these, especially ones I've read, I just had to buy them! They were £7.99 each instead of the usual £12.99, although now I want the whole set, haha! These are Puffin Clothbound Classics, they even have an adult range (Penguin Clothbound Classics), that are equally as beautiful, but not quite as brightly coloured.

I don't really know how to display them, I don't have a bookcase, these rest of my books are stored in a tub under my bed, but these really deserve to be on show. Any ideas?

I also picked up this set of Ciate Paint Pots (usually between £9-11 each, for just £10! Seriously, I rarely buy polish anywhere else but TK Maxx, the prices are too good! I've bought tonnes of Nails Inc polishes before for a steal, as long as you don't mind just seeing what they have, rather than than be after a specific colour, it is definitely a cost effective way to buy normally pricier polishes.
I hadn't actually tried Ciate out before, despite seeing good reviews about the brand. I love the little bottles, the bows are sweet, & the nail polishes are definitely good quality. I am actually most impressed with the cuticle oil (smells so nice!) & also the topcoat, which is almost as good as my beloved Seche Vite!

  4. Those books are so lovely! Waterstones have recently started doing more traditional book covers I think they are so much nicer to have than more modern covers. I've never tried Ciate either might have to keep an eye out at my local TK Maxx! x

  8. Hi Georgina! Long-time lurker here - hope you're having a great holiday! Say, with those books, you could buy a little display shelf (or box), paint it or wallpaper it in a pastel shade, and display the books on the wall, perhaps? :)

  16. Such gorgeous books! Not to mention they're books that I love <3 I think they'd look pretty anywhere.

    One of my goals in life is to have a really pretty bookshelf to display all my books. It hasn't happened yet though XD

  17. oh i want those books just for my daughter when she is a little older (or ALOT older). xXx

  18. Such pretty books! I've only read the secret garden out of the three you got, but I remember it being really good. I bet they would look really cute with some bookends on a table or something. Or you could just leave them lying in a pile. They're pretty enough to qualify as knick-knacks.

  19. Hi Georgina. Been reading your blog for ages but don't think I've ever commented. Re your gorgeous books, there are a couple variations on this book frame out there:

    I've been meaning to get one for ages because some book covers are just so dang lovely!

    Please check out my (new) blog. I will be doing outfit (dress) posts soon (also based in UK) :) http://www.ellomennopee.blogspot.co.uk/
