Collective Haul // January-March 2015


It's time for my bi-annual collective haul! I don't go on shopping 'sprees' or buy a lot of things in one go but still love seeing and writing haul posts, therefore I compile everything I buy over a few months into one post! My last one was way back in November, so I thought it was time. :)
I'll keep this one pretty short, just write everything I've acquired as a list here and let you look at the photos haha.

Saving Mr Banks DVD - When I ordered the copy for my competition/give away thing, my Mam asked me to order her a copy too. Well she ended up just giving it to me for my collection after she'd watched it, so that was pretty rad.

Ratatouille DVD - Dad surprisingly ordered this online for me after Mam and I's trip to Newcastle for her tattoo. We were in line to buy it but it was taking so long I had to put it back so as not to miss our train.

Toy Story DVD - Courtesy of Disney Movies Rewards! Yay!


Bird Notebook - From Home Bargains. I didn't need yet another notebook, but it had birds on...

Owl Ring Holder - Also from Home Bargains, although I don't wear rings I needed the owl to match my bird and rabbit ring holders. It's now home to my Pandora bracelet.

Mickey Mouse tee and Hufflepuff tee - After getting a pair of Mickey joggers which did not fit my muscle calves, I returned them to Primark and exchanged them for these two t-shirts. You already know 80% of my wardrobe is Disney clothing and if you didn't know, yes, I am a Hufflepuff.

Edinburgh Zoo Magnet and Panda Mini Stuffed Toy - Every day out or visit to somewhere like this I have to get a little soft toy, it's a kind of tradition of Jake and I's now. I also collecting magnets somewhat.


Easter sign - Home Bargains. As part of my Spring decor.

Tea Tree oil - I can't afford to repurchase my favourite toning water from Lush just now and my skin is suffering because of the lack of it. Tea Tree has always worked well with it and so I picked myself up a bottle to try and sort out the current situation.

Bunnies, Chicks and Wooden Decor - More little (and cheap!) supplies for my Spring crafts and decorations, of course from the one and only Home Bargains.

Knitted Bunny Creme Egg Covers - I follow an account on Twitter NWDogRescue, who help find dogs in kennels forever homes! Anyways, the occasionally are donated things to sell to help them raise funds to keep the rescue going and I just had to have these cute little buns!
Go give them a follow and RT some of the fantastic dogs they have trying to find homes.

Pansy Seed Starter kit and Daffodils - Apparently the shops aren't stocking all of their seeds and bulbs yet, and so I ended up with just this little Pansy starter kit and a little bunch of Daffodils to put in my window. They've opened up a lot since taking the photo.


Beauty and the Beast & The Lion King DVDs - A gift from Jake, only a few more needed to complete my collection. (I never buy them full price, otherwise I'd have them all by now. I just don't have the funds for that!)

Worlds Greatest Dog Photo Frame - We have a new B&M store that's just opened and on our trip to have a look at garden stuff we spotted this. For £1.99 who couldn't get this?! Just need to pick one of the thousands of photos I have of him to get printed...

Sunglasses - Another surprise B&M purchase! They are sturdier than my Primark ones and are green, so thumbs up to that.

Face mask and Wind up Bunny - My favourite face mask for my recently rubbish skin and a jokey
wind up hopping rabbit just to see what Baker would make of it. It was well worth the 49p! haha

Mickey Mouse 'Ye Olden Days' Movie Poster Canvas - I say it all the time, but I have the best Dad ever. <3



This seems to be a lot longer than I thought, but with it being over a full 3 months and nothing costing more than £13.00 it's a lot better than some who blow hundreds on one shopping trip! As always thank you Dad, Mam and Jake for the little bits you have treated me to too. Hopefully it'll be me treating you in the coming months after starting my new job :)
Have you bought anything cool recently? Tell me about your favourite purchase in the comments.

  1. The notebook is so cute. I never need notebooks but I'm always strangely drawn to them and the prettier they are the more likely they'll end up being bought! I like the Hufflepuff t-shirt although I am actually a Gryffindor. I can't say the Gryffindor t-shirts always look that nice though :(

    1. Haha Exactly! I have loads of unused ones...oops!
      You know, I've never actually found a fellow Hufflepuff :( No matter how many online quizzes I do I have always been Hufflepuff and Pottermore sorted me there twice! haha

  2. I'm quite taken by those glasses :)
    I also managed to find somewhere that sells that brand of face mask so I can't wait to pop into town and get some to try out :) Do you have any favourites that you recommend?

    1. Aren't they jazzy?! I love a coloured mirror lens.
      :O Awesome!! Cruelty free all the wayy. It depends on skin type but when my skin is in poor shape the one in the photo is fab and for when it's doing okay, the chocolate one. Mmm! But don't eat it. I tried it and it wasn't nice...

  3. I like the notebook! I always need notebooks for work, but I usually stick with Marvel Heroes covers. I might pop to Home Bargains for this one those, it looks lovely. I've bought all of the Harry Potter t shirts from Primark. I think the joggers are a bit strangely shaped, so I just indulge in the shirts instead =p I love the World's Greatest Dog frame, it's very pretty! Every time I go to Chester Zoo I also have to buy a little stuffed toy, it's usually a big cat though - my house is full of tigers!

    1. Home Bargains surprisingly gets a few cute things in now and again. Think it was only 99p if I remember rightly..
      Yes! They've started doing those skinny joggers and I have muscle-y calves that just don't look right in them haha.

      Aw cool, what a fab thing to collect! I just get something of what we enjoyed seeing most at whatever place it is we are at. :)

  4. Ah, these are all such great purchases! I actually still need to buy Ratatouille - I was sure that I already owned it but I haven't been able to find it for months, so I think I need to admit defeat and buy a new copy! It's so sweet that your dad thought to order it after you weren't able to get it on your day out.

    It's funny that you always get a new teddy at Edinburgh Zoo - I always get a new key ring! I now can't visit without picking up a new animal key ring, but it does mean I smile every time I look at my flat keys and see all my cute key rings.

    That film canvas is amazing - your dad has great taste!

    1. I didn't own any Pixar as I'm a little OCD and needed to finished collecting the numbered classics first haha! But my Mam loved the ride at Disneyland so much that we had to get it so she could see it. My Dad is literally the best dad ever!

      No matter where we go, Zoo, museum, whatever - I always get a little token to remember it by! haha It is lovely to have something like that to make you smile everyday :)

  13. That notebook is gorgeous! Home Bargains always have some excellent stuff, our nearest one is about a 30 minutes drive - on one hand, I think I need to lobby the store to open one in my home town but on the other hand, I'm sure I'd spend a fortune if we did have one nearby! :-) xx

    1. Isn't it? Yes, totally! Oh mine is in town which is just across the bridge (a 10min walk) from my house.
      I do refrain myself though and thankfully ours is just small/the stuff I like is just cheap! haha
