Now I’m going to let the photos do most of the talking here, but a couple of weekends ago we had a little family tea party. Not for any particular special occasion, just because I felt like doing something special and getting all my nice china out. I have a beautiful Cath Kidston provence rose design tea set that I won many years ago. It was my second ever comp win! But I’ve never got round to using it before, and it seemed silly having something so pretty and it being unused. So I got out my Cath Kidston tea…

I’m loving the new homeware items available in shops this season. Everything seems so much more colourful when the sun comes out! I still need to take a trip to Ikea, but it always seems like so much effort. I can’t help but buying cute little things for the home if they’re a good enough price. I probably don’t need half of the things I buy, but they’re just so sweet! I could spend hours browsing around being inspired by beautiful interiors. I’ve recently come across some stunning shabby chic floral wallpapers which make me wish I had a blank canvas room…

Last weekend I took another trip to the Cath Kidston outlet shop in St Neots which is fairly local to me.

Since discovering the Cath Kidston day bags I’ve started my own little collection. It started off with the berry red dot pattern, which I’ve used tonnes and it still looks like new! Liam then bought me the strawberry print one in the summer last year, which was the perfect adorable print for the lovely weather. My parents then bought me the grey rose one for Christmas, which I’ve been using most recently as it goes nicely with my big red coat.  And then finally, a few weeks ago I decided to bid on the white floral one, as I thought…

Today I dropped Liam off at Peterborough train station for him to go off for his Army training, and on my drive home I (literally) pass the St Neots Cath Kidston Outlet Store. It’s just off the A1, and in between Bedford and Cambridge. So as I was sulking a little bit due to being struck down with a horrible flu and leaving Liam, I decided to pop in. One of my most popular blog posts ever is this one I did last year on the big haul I got, and although I’ve been a couple of times since then,…
