Jumbo store haul

Today was a long and pleasant day for me : I was for most part of the day in great company with my work colleagues at an IELTS seminar (I am an English teacher first). I learnt a lot of useful information on how to best prepare my students for the all important IELTS exam and I exchanged ideas and experiences with my lovely colleagues. Since I was in close proximity of a Jumbo store (the one on Bulevardul Theodor Pallady 51G) I decided to check it out. And of course I didn't leave empty handed.

I tried to stay focused and buy ony the necessities. It is a lovely store full of temptations. There are home decor items, storage and stationery, toys, cosmetics and make-up and many more. It is a large store so you need a little time to go through all the items at leisure, but I am sure you won't leave empty handed. The prices are reasonable so you can easily find gifts for all your loved ones in the store.
I wanted to find some decor objects to use as background in my videos for Periscope and Youtube. And what is more inspirational than Marilyn Monroe to add a touch of glamour and femininity? Just perfect! The painting cost only 6 ron. Another object I bought is the silver round placemat (9.99 ron) as a background for the photos. I have to see if it works like this, since it is silvery and shiny, but I love it.
Another item I fell in love at first site, was the London photo frame. I am in love with London, I have been there 3 times already and I would go anytime. This photo frame brings with it many beautiful memories I will treasure forever. It cost 9.99 ron.
I also loved this festive, fun card as soon as I saw it in the store. I think it will match Marilyn well. It was 2.99 ron. And last but not least, another item I love!! You can see it in the first haul photo. It is a push pins set shaped as sexy pink lips. I loooove it! Sexy and fun! I can't wait to pin all my photos and other information with it. The set was 3.99 ron. I hope they'll bring it in red lips too! 

I paid in total 33 ron for this small haul I showed you. I am very proud of myself for resisting the temptation of buying the entire store. Oh I will definitely be back! I already have some items on my wishlist. Anyway if you are looking for some Christmas shopping inspiration go and check out the two stores in Bucharest : Jumbo in Bulevardul Theodor Pallady 51G and Drumul Dealul Bisericii 67-109. Tell me What do you recommend I should buy from Jumbo? Until next time,



  1. pff, cat de dragute sunt!!! <3 mor ca n-am si eu jumbo :))

    1. Nu muri. Lasa ca sunt sigura ca se vor dezvolta si in alte orase din tara. Era plin ochi de lume. Nu am mai apucat sa fac poze ca eram pe fuga la final si imi era frica ca ne dau afara si nu apuc sa caut ce ma interesa. Este foarte mare si plin de bunatati. Si convenabil ca pret. Cu siguranta voi reveni.


I would love to hear from you
