Weekend Bargains!

I love finding a bargain and so most weekends I'll have a scout about in the discount and pound shops. I also love browsing online for bargains- it's a bit of an addiction really, especially when I should be doing something more productive! This weekend was no different so after a visit to the new Chinese buffet in Wrexham, I was ready to have a mooch about the shops and this is what took my fancy.

In Discount UK I bought the Naked Shine hydrating conditioner for £1.99 and a classic Carmex lip balm stick for a quid. I seem to get on better with Naked's conditioners than their shampoos, and the ones I've tried previously have been lovely so I have high hopes for this one. I got the Carmex as my lips have been feeling quite sore lately and this has worked well in the past. It's also much more convenient and hygienic to use than the ones in pots. I also got a Wet n Wild '3 of a Kind' lips, eyes and cheek stick in the shade By Sunset Strip which is a sort of pinky peach golden shade. I think it'll work best as a blush and would be a good choice for Summer. I've not tested this out properly yet but it seems nice enough, albeit with a slightly weird scent. For a quid though I can't grumble too much.
In Asda I picked up the hair bobbles for a pound, I think. I'm always losing mine and these seem to have the perfect amount of give to them. If you have thick hair then you'll understand how frustrating it is sometimes to find the ones with the right elasticity!
Today I had a look around the Poundland in the town where I live with my boyfriend and was pleased to find some Filthy Gorgeous nail polishes. I remember seeing these in Debenhams a few years back but they were a bit pricey if I remember rightly. I chose the shades Pulp (dark purple) and Air-Kiss ( bright blue). I love the design of the bottles and can't wait to try them out.
I also ordered a Bourjois nail polish from Ebay which arrived on Saturday. It's from the 10 days no chips range, which I think is discontinued, and is in the shade 26. I really wanted to get my hands on this as it's meant to be a dupe for Essie's Splash of Grenadine. I only paid £2.69 for it so it was a much cheaper option! Again, I'm looking forward to giving this a go!
Have you bought any bargains lately?
