    I didn't spot a Tangle Attack but I have two TT dupes I was sent to review, so would have to resist buying one.
    I spotted some cute little Calippo lip balms - orange flavour - ideal for warmer weather. The range of items available on the drinks and snacks 3 for £1 had expanded since my last visit and included Walker's Crisps with the money draw offer.
    I spotted some items that appeared to have gone missing had returned - hair dye, Bloo Maxi toilet blocks, and 550 ml bottles of Lenor.
    Not particularly good value were the sachets of Mr Muscle drain cleaner granules, probably a variation on caustic soda, which you can buy in Wilko's.
    500g of sultanas was decent value, and I got some Bobby's coffee syrup (vanilla) which is quite nice. There were some packs of Lotus coffee biscuits to go well with this.
    Some of the Jane Asher cake decorating items were 25p, bags of toffee were 50p as were Hallow'een sweet packs.

    Not much in the way of books, the only one I can really recall was a biography of Conchita Wurst. More for children though - lots of Horrid Henry and some other popular titles.
    Erma Bombeck, American writer: "If I had my life to live over again... I would have burned the pink candle, sculptured like a rose, that melted in storage." Don't keep things 'for best' - that day never comes. Use them and enjoy them now.

    I usually get the blue Neutradol carpet powder to use in wheelie bin, since my local had above product in thought i'd try it.
    Impressed after a few days in empty wheelie bin it smells much better, albiet with a chemical blast when I open the lid! Gotta be better than the rubbish odours!

    They're talking about these on HUKD today - 6 x 330ml Schweppes Grapefruit & Blood Orange cans, which is a bargain.

    These will fly off the shelves (mind you, typically for Glasgow, today it's raining)

    Was looking for some cooking oils yesterday - saw my local Poundland has "Ibero" Grapeseed Oil in 250ml and Ibero Salad Oil - Virgin Olive Oil/Sunflower Oil 500ml in Trongate, Glasgow.

    Not sure what Grapeseed Oil is like (seen it mentioned more on skincare forums!) but thought I'd give it a try.

    I thought of all my Poundland thread gals today as I wore the Pretty Polly undewear today under a jersey dress. It was their first outing. They were the nude coloured shorts. They were fairly comfortable and not restrictive. Looked nice and smooth on the tummy area. Thumbs up from me!

    They're easy to get on and off for a pee, which is a bonus! Worn them on a few nights out and they're comfortable and unobtrusive.

    I found some Burt's Bees tinted lip balm in the Glasgow Sauchiehall Street store today. The colour is Calla Lily, it's a rose pink. Feels and looks good on. I bought 2 and then picked up some more in Argyle Street, though they didn't have as many in stock. A great bargain.

    Hastily making up a beauty bundle for my sister's birthday From Argyle Street, Glasgow, a few hours ago:

    Vaseline Intensive Care, Advanced Repair, Fragrance Free, 200ml (cheapest I can see it is on offer at Superdrug for £1.69 http://www.superdrug.com/Vaseline/Vaseline-Intensive-Care-Advanced-Repair-Lotion-200ml/p/320704 usually around £3.)

    Beautifully Scrumptious Deep Moisturising Foot Pack, Tea Tree & Peppermint (seems to be booties, you wear them for 20 minutes). Also in Honey & Almond, Moroccan Argan Oil Extract or Deep Moisturising Macadamia varieties.

    L'Action "Lifting" Mud Face Mask With Essential Oils 15g.

    Fing'rs Prints Girlie Glam, 31039 Sweet Sihouette, Press-On Nails With Charms (wear up to a week, easy off, 24 nails in 12 sizes, 2 charms with 6 adhesive tabs).

    Lots of NYC eyeshadows (mini palettes or in stick form), eyeliner pencils (be aware the Showtime range has flecks of glitter in it), and I picked up an NYC BB Beautifying Blushable Cream Stick in 002 Never Sleeping Pink.

    Also got a twin pack of Gift Bags with tags, one large, one medium, you can see the love heart design bag at the top of the photo. The smaller Gift Bag says "Especially For You" in Pink.

    Here's a review of the NYC Blush Stick (sorry I mucked up the lighting on the photo, but you'll get a better look at it here) http://www.budgetbeautyblog.com/2015/03/nyc-cosmetics-beautyifying-blushable-bb-cream-stick-soho-pink-never-sleeping-pink-swatches.html

    Post #6862- bin was emptied today after 2 weeks. I only needed to add a little new powder, much less than I was expecting. Bin still smelt pretty good. Really impressed.

The younglings want to look amazing in strappy sandalled heels & haven't put the time & prep in. My incredible fellow Scout leaders are nearly out cold on their feet so a thankyou half hour of the circulating teapot & these applied to any foot without blisters acts impressively inside & out!

    Some bits and pieces from Argyle Street, Glasgow: Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick in 01 Princess Rose shade.

    This store also has Superman Water Guns (took a picture!).

    And in Union Street, Glasgow: Kellogg's Fruit Winders 6 x 17g rolls, AquaMax Cream 100g ("SLS-free, emollient for softening, protecting and moisturising dry skin. Colour, fragrance and lanolin-free - for psoriasis, eczema, etc").
    Wall's Twister and Starship 4 lip balms 4g, Colorsport Rapid Lash-Gro Eyeliner, Black 3.5ml (bought the last few - these were in Poundland last year some time? Prefer this in Brown, tbh!).
    Dove Summer Glow + Soft Shimmer in Medium/Dark, 250ml (seems to be a Dutch import, but has a sticker on the back in English).

    Saw the Vaseline Lip Therapy baubles in Union Street too, but didn't purchase (aren't those mini Vaselines around £1 anyway? Not sure, though).

    I realise some of the above may be old news (as a few of these have been in Poundland a while) but worth mentioning for those who don't know.

    Reviews of AquaMax here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/product-reviews/B007CIL1JC/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_summary?ie=UTF8&reviewerType= all_reviews&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=helpful

    Edit: I can see AquaMax themselves mention their product is now in Poundland, though they do say for "99p" (must be a mistake) http://www.aqua-max.co.uk/aquamax-emollient-cream-now-available-in-poundland-stores-at-99p/

    The Vaseline tins can be found in Home Bargains for 89p I think. The "lolly" lip balms were 2 for £1 last year I recall although they were in different packaging. The Dove Summer Glow is £1.99 in Home Bargains so I hope I can find some in Poundland near me. Don't know about anyone else but my Poundland hasn't had any really good bargains lately, like the hair products by famous brands that would usually sell for £4 - £5 in Boots etc that they used to get in.

    I'm not sure it's a bargain but I bought a couple of wooden plant trellises the other day. My local only had the thin trapezoid shape in stock, but Stratford E15 had the rectangular ones in.

    I put a pic of one of my receipts on a HUKD thread so they're definitely £1 each (unless it's a mistake in that store - unlikely, though)!

    I saw similar Dove Summer Glow bottles (without the "Shimmer" part) for £2 in the nearby Poundworld, too.
