Five under £5 May 2016

This last month has been a bit of a whirlwind with the arrival of a Barney, a slow recovery from birth and now an infection so I actually haven't been buying too much until the last week or so but I have still managed to bag a few little buys under £5 so I am linking up with the Five Under £5 linky once again.


First up some hits for myself, a couple of items I had seen recommended on beauty blogs. The Make Up Revolution Iconic 3 palette has been cited as a dupe for Urban Decays Naked 3 palette and with the bargain price tag of £4.99 I figured it was worth a try. I have to say I am so impressed with it, the shadow colours are so wearable and seem to last the day really well. The double ended brush was just £1 from Primark, they have a whole range of brushes now, i love the rose gold and I can never have enough eyeshadow brushes so I grabbed a couple of these.


Next up is this gold chevron patterned notebook from Home Bargains,  I can't remember exactly how much but it was definitely less than £1. I can never have too many notebooks, I use them for jotting down everything from blog post ideas, meal plan or for planning home ed activities. For me paper and pen just can't be replaced by technology.


My last two buys are baby items. This fabric storage tub was picked up in TK Maxx(I just love that shop) for just £3.99, it is the perfect size for keeping all the bits I might need during middle of the night wake ups, nappies, wipes, muslin etc and saves me hunting around in the dark for things.
The satin edged cellular blanket was just £2.49 from Aldi in their recent baby event because I loved the colour. I have a couple of cellular blankets from a previous baby event and they have washed so nicely, I can't believe how little they cost!
