It's still Friday with a couple of hours to go so I've made it in time for my Friday Five! Can I just say - hasn't the weather at the beginning of the week been lush?
Friday Five (1 of 5) Plant Life
I had a little pootle through Matalan the other day to have a nosey for a few things I'd seen on line. I didn't find any of the things that I wanted but I did find that cute little hanging plant in a macrame holder up there for five squid. You can't say fairer than that and there's no guilt involved because I can't kill it. I could drop it though which I admit to having done as the little bowl can slip out of the holder if you're not careful. Other good faux plants which I spotted on my travels include these two from Sainsburys which are available in store. Both under £6 too!
Available instore at Sainsburys.
Friday Five (2 of 5) Mules
Well I looked at all the options out there - floral, metallic, suede, pointy and non pointy and returned a couple of pairs that I ordered but eventually settled on these stripy ones. Comfy from the word off or as comfy as it gets when you do a circuit around the house for two minutes, I think that's my nod to the mule trend covered without breaking the bank. They go nicely with all the blues from my wardrobe which seem to surface when it gets warmer.

Friday Five (4 of 5) When Leather isn't Leather.
I had a love in with Cos this week when I nipped in to the Leeds store. I could have bought all sorts and in amongst those all sorts was this lovely grained leather bag. I played with it a few times before I finally put it down. And then as I was hanging out in the H&M bag section, a little bag caught my eye which was not dissimilar to the Cos one. A fraction smaller but I thought it was pretty good and the faux leather was spot on. Don't believe me? The Toast bag with the brown leather strap is real leather. The H&M one isn't. Not bad eh? I love it when I do a spot like that!

Friday Five (5 of 5) Pears
Aldi do really good loose pears. Not everything is good but the pears are good. Just thought you might like to know.
