Ebay Bargain Haul – January 2016

eBay bargain haul

I can not believe that the last time I did one of these posts it was before Christmas and back in 2015, where the hell has the time gone!? For most of you your first payday since Christmas is to arrive any day now so what better excuse to treat yourself?! January as a month sucks for most people, it’s cold and grey so make yourself feel better before the end of the month by checking out my Ebay bargains of the month.

copper fairy lights

Copper Wire Fairy Lights- £3.95- Buy Here
Fairy Lights seem to be a blogger/ interior lovers dream at the moment and this is now the second set that I have bought, oops. I am set to make every inch of my flat look like a Disney Princess’ treasure trove naturally. These thinly wired fairy lights have a copper tinge so if you look quickly they’ll look like rose gold (every bloggers dream!) when in fact there is quite a lot of silver in them, but oh well they’re still pretty. Just whack some AA batteries into the box and switch them on to get your bedroom/ hallway mirror/ living room/ anywhere else twinkling.

line a day diary One Line A Day Diary- £11.07- Buy Here
I have been scourging the internet for presents for my mum’s upcoming birthday and I stumbled across this diary. I have seen them in Urban Outfitters before but I am pretty sure they were quite a bit more expensive there. My mum can be quite negative about herself and I thought this diary would be great for her to focus on one positive thing a day to write down so she can look back and see how great life is.


crystal necklace
Crystal Necklace- £1.99- Buy Here
So far I’ve bought three of these necklaces in various colours and they are really pretty and sparkly. The necklaces are slightly longer than your standard 16-18 inch chain which means you can layer them up with other necklaces and the price won’t break the bank. The necklaces do take a little while to arrive as they come from China but for the price and the super pretty colours they’re well worth it.


skull cushion

Skull Cushion- £6.99- Buy Here
Over the past few months I have been hauling interior stuff through Ebay and I have bought about four cushions in the past month despite the fact that I am starting to run out of space to actually put them in. I could not resist this cushion though as it’s brightly coloured and featured a repeated sugar skull pattern all over it. I managed to nab the cushions themselves really cheap from The Range for literally a few quid so this worked out a bargain compared to ones I’ve seen in Camden which are pretty similar.


elastic hair ties

Elastic Hair Ties- £1.99- Buy Here
When I go to the gym or go swimming/ to aqua aerobics I like to wear elastic stretchy hair ties because they don’t damage my hair when it gets wet/ sweaty. The elastic ties stretch a lot more than your standard hair tie and they don’t sag like you get with normal ones after a while. I’m doing all I can to keep my hair healthy and these definitely help. This set of 10 random colours will keep me going for a while.

Have you had any good Ebay bargains recently?
