Five Under £5 June 2016

I don’t have 5 things this month, but I do have 4 really good things to share with you.  If you want to get involved and link up your monthly 5 Under £5 finds then head over to Julia’s blog at Rainbeaubelle.

PEZ £1.00

Yes I collect PEZ dispensers & have done for years. I have quite a collection & at last count I had over 200. These are my latest additions & I am pretty pleased with the Snoopy ones, they’re so cute. I always buy them when I see them in discount shops & I never pay more that £1.50. I need a neat way of displaying them & I’m thinking of a little DIY project, making something to go on the wall to put them all in. I will keep you posted.

Alpro Go On Yoghurts 80p

These are delicious & I have been trying to hunt them down for weeks, Cornwall always seems to be the last to get anything new but I have stocked up on these so I am good for the next few weeks. They are so creamy & the fruit is so sweet and refreshing. Even if you’re not into Alpro I highly recommend trying these, I think you will be surprised as to how nice they are. I only saw 2 flavours, Mango & Passionfruit, but I hope they release a few more.

Succulent Plant £3.99

My toilet downstairs has no windows & so I can’t keep a real plant in there which is a pain, so I have been on the hunt for an artificial plant. When I came across this succulent in The Range at first I thought it was real it looks so convincing. It goes perfectly in my small toilet and brings a little greenery to the space.They come in lovely mirrored pots & I think they’re cute and so inexpensive. I need to pop back in and get a couple more.

Clipper Love Me Truly Chai Tea £2.99

I LOVE Chai and this one from Clipper is not only beautifully packaged its also one of the tastiest I have tried. Its spicy and full of flavour. I wish I could buy it in bulk because I drink so many cups a day. Its what keeps me going.

This Weeks Happy #7

Me & my Niece Alyvia

Scottish Roadtrip

This past week we took 5 days off & headed north of the border to Scotland where my family live, we make the 300 mile drive about every 8 weeks & its always such a beautiful journey. We didn’t expect to see snow but it made all the hills look pretty. The scenery always looks so different each time depending on the season, even though I must have done the journey countless times I never tire of it. I love getting to see my family & especially my niece who is 6 & is growing up so fast.

Date Night True Romance Date Night

My husband & I celebrated 15 years together in February & we never do anything extravagant to mark the occasion. This year was no exception. I spotted that one of our favourite bars Kosmonaut in Manchester was showing our favourite film and we decided it would be a fun way to celebrate. Pizza, cocktails & True Romance = my ideal date night.

Vanilla Chai

Chai has become my drink of choice over the past few months, I love how spicy it tastes. It’s become so easily available too & most supermarkets have their own version. The Vanilla one I have photographed above is nice but I think the original Tesco version is nicer. If you have a favourite brand of Chai then let me know, I’d love to try more.

Deliciously Ella Cookbook

In the past 3 years since my dad had his Stroke my whole family has started to eat better. My mum juices twice a day & has stopped smoking & her skin is looking incredible. My husband & I eat a Vegan diet & we have never been more adventurous & excited about cooking & meal planning. We have discovered so many tasty meals and snacks since cutting out all the processed food. I have been trying to do more of the cooking these past few months and buying some cookbooks has really helped. Deliciously Ella is the newest book in my collection & I have found it so easy to follow & even a beginner like me has been able to follow the recipes & cook some edible meals.

I have a post planned all about my favourite Vegan / healthy meals and snacks, so keep an eye out for that.
