I was going to do a Christmas themed Ebay bargain haul but then I thought December is way too late to do one. The Royal Mail would never get your delivery to you in time if you ordered now (good luck if you have!)
So instead this bargain haul are some of the things I’ve been treating myself to over this month because you need treats when all you’ve been doing is Christmas shopping.
Glitter Phone Case – £3.49
To begin with is this phone case. Going completely against what I said above about these being presents for me, this was actually something I bought my mum. My mum is a complete magpie and if something glitters she loves it never mind how tacky it might look. I was looking around for a new phone case for her because her old one is very tired and came across this one which not only is glittery but has purple edges (her favorite colour, hooray!) I wasn’t expecting great quality for the price but it’s a decent thickness plastic and feels really durable and the glitter isn’t the kind which is going to come off on your hand everytime you use it. Bonus!
Yankee Candle Reed Diffuser – £9.99 – Buy Here
I’ve only really just begun using reed diffusers as candles always used to be my jam but my mum is obsessed with them and the house always smells wonderful when I go round to visit so I thought i’d get one. Obviously if you can Yankee is the choice for everything like this and when I found these reeds on promotion I had to snap one up. I currently have Midnight Jasmine but you can get them in a number of scents aswell.
Yankee Voltive Candle Cookies for Santa – £2.99 – Buy Here
Sticking to the Candle theme I have been stocking up on voltives over the past few months to sample a load of smells before committing to spending the money on a larger candle. I bought the Christmas Baking Candle from Asda which is probably my favourite scent ever (it pretty much smells like you’ve got cakes baking all day!) but this Cookies for Santa scent is a bit more neutral and perhaps less over the top. Regardless of it’s name I am going to burning this right through the New Year.
Medal hanger – £13.95 – Buy Here
For those of you who have been reading my blog for a while or know me you’ll know I have been doing races, obstacle runs and other forms of endurance activities throughout 2015 and iIve already got a good collection of medals in my possession. With about three or four already planned for next year (and probably more to come) I thought it was about time I got a medal hanger. This is a perfect size and is going to look amazing on my way when I manage to get it up, my only issue is I think i’ll fill it up too quickly and need another.
USB plug – £2.89 – Buy Here
Now for something boring and super practical. This USB Plug has made my life so much easier. Beside my bed I have a double plug but alternate between charging my Ipod, my mobile, my camera, my fitness band and my SLR camera (the list goes on!) And it was always such a pain to keep pulling plugs in and out but with this plug I no longer have that. I can plug in four different USB leads to the one plug and charge all my products at the same time whilst always knowing where the cable is going to be. Seriously one of the best things I’ve bought!
Collapsable Reflector – £3.48 – Buy Here
Photography is something I really want to focus more on in the New Year so I bought this reflector in a bid to help me to get more light into my photos so I don’t have to rely on my flash. I have used it a few times and it has been a great help with adding in some light but I do need to play around with it some more. For just a few pounds it’s going to be fun adding more little bits like this to help get my photos to a point where I am happy with them.
