A plethora of bargains

Just a few items i picked up when i was in the Uk 
earlier in the month.

I'd ordered the Dark Materials trilogy off ebay but had it delivered to 
my mum's house by accident!
No bother, it just meant i had more books
to rub all over myself in glee!

My best bargain being home, 
apart from my dainty doll eyeshadows,
was my £1 disney dvds!

I'm not even ashamed to admit i am a disney freak.
They are my childhood, they are my future.
Animation forever!!

Anyway, onto the bargains :)

I've been trawling ebay trying to find these for cheaps,
i eventually found them in a shop called 'The Works' in the mall for £7.
Properly chuffed.
I'm currently halfway through mockingjay.
It's been a while since i last read them so i have no idea what's going to happen.
Yes, my forgetfulness comes in handy sometimes!

Ugh another amazing series. 
My performing arts teacher recommended these to me when i was 17,
thank you Mr Lewis, best knowledge you ever gave me!

My boyfriend has just finished playing Bioshock Infinite.
The mention of tears [not wah crying tears, a tear in material etc] had me dying to read The Subtle Knife again.
Once i've finished mockingjay i'm going to dive right into these.

I've never read this but the blurb sucked me in.
Sounds so interesting, and it is a tome, not a book, a tome.
It was a quid!

I saw JK Rowlings new [well, old] book the casual vacancy in the same shop but i left it.
Not sure why, hadn't heard good reviews so wasn't convinced.

Kind of wish i'd got it now, reckon it was only £1 too.

A little treat my dad got me in a charity shop in Lymm.
Cost him £1.
Oh he does spoil me :)

Some bits i picked up from the bargain shops.
Not really very interesting, just things i've wanted to try and things i can't get in Berlin.

Paperchase haul!
God i love paperchase.
I spent under a fiver in here and not pictured is the wrapping paper and birthday tags i used for my mum's birthday presents.

My 35p dinosaur pen.
Why did i only buy one!?!?!?!?
Non, je ne regrette rien.

I've never used a magnetic bookmark and i have to say, amazing.
75p for these lovely treats.
And they don't fall out of your book when you're lugging it around the house.

I miss home again!
I also bought a lot of clothes.
They are all mainly grey and boring though, so i can't be bothered taking pictures of them ha!
I walked into asda one day and they were having a half price clothing sale.
Other people might be a bit snobby, i guess, when it comes to supermarket clothes,
but i swear, i live in them.
I shop at asda all the time for clothes, it's just so affordable and seriously, 
they really are doing something right this year.
The clothes are amazing.

Ok, i've bored myself now.
The most exciting thing i brought to Berlin was all my books.
I might treat you to a post about my meagre bookshelf here in Berlin.
Get excited!!

I'm hoping to do a giveaway when i hit 50 followers to say thanks for showing interest.
Fun Fun! 


  1. £1 Disney DVDS?! What black magic is this?! Also Estee Lauder for a £1! Wow. You have got yourself some amazing bargains there. I love the magnetic bookmarks, I might have to see if ours have any as I want a pretty one as I'm forever using the first piece of paper I find x

    1. Haha black magic it is!! If you can't find the bookmarks i can send you one of mine...i don't need all 4!! I am ashamed to say i used to be a page folder! Then i used scraps which kept falling out, now i have the magnet, wahoo :D
