Last weekend I visited Oxford city centre to see some family, and then on the way home I also popped into Bicester Village outlet centre. Both the city centre and Bicester have a Cath Kidston store, but the one at Bicester is an outlet so things are a bit cheaper! I hadn’t bought myself anything Cath Kidston in a while, so I thought I would treat myself to a few things.   So here’s the goodies I picked up: Tea towel,…

Just a little post on how I reused a few Cath Kidston free magazines to make these (large!) bookmarks. You can order your free Cath Kidston magazine from their website here.

It’s Christmas Eve, Eve! Exciting 🙂 On Wednesday I received an email from a magazine in Birmingham saying I had won a competition, but because the prize is quite large and heavy I had to collect it, and I had only until today to get it! So living 70miles away from Birmingham, I was worried I wouldn’t be able to collect it on time. But I finished work early yesterday so hopped on the train to fetch it. You will see…
