I have already posted here about the No7 lipstick I picked up on holiday, but I thought I'd share some of the other things I got my hands on when I was away.
For so long I have heard this and that about Yankee candles. Yet never before have I actually come across them (surprising actually!) Well, on holiday I did, and having smelt every single scent of candle I chose to get two sampler size ones - Black Cherry and Pink Sands. I keep these beside my bed, and they are seriously the nicest smells I have come across. The candles are so heavily scented that even sitting on my bed I can smell them. Sampler sizes cost under £2 each
The Granite Shop:
In The Granite Shop I picked up two tin candle holders. (Perfect for my Yankee candles!) These are really sweet, with a cut out heart pattern. They caught my eye immediately and were each £3.50
Soo I have a thing for tin. And in Wayoutwest I came across this tin - made of actual tin.. And fell in love with it! Oscar Wilde is someone I have heard about but I don't think I've ever read any of his works! However here he is with a motivational message - what more could a girl want on her tin? I'm not sure what I'll eventually put in it. Currently its sitting on my dressing table on its side so that the face is pointing at me. It was only £3.99
To set you straight, Fisherman's Mission is pretty much what it says. This is a charity set up to support the fishermen of the fishing port I visited up North. They sell a lot of second hand books, so in I went and stocked up! I also came across a huge box of old postcards. Most from around the 1920's - from all across the UK and also France. Wow. They sold at £1 each, so I took 4: views of Edinburgh, Ben Nevis, Stirling Castle, and Rhum & Eigg (islands) - all of which mean something to me.
One day whilst visiting a town, I passed a Mackies which had a sale on. In I went. I picked up these statement necklaces for £3 each (originally £12 each). I have been looking for something like this for ages so it was a good find!
