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!
