So this post is probably a little bit late as the last carboot sale I went to was at the beginning of October but I didn’t think these few items were worthy of a whole blog post, so I’ve added a couple of charity shop buys in here too! Sorry it’s such a short post. Soap & Glory Mother Pucker lipgloss – 50p L’oreal Lumi Magique Base Primer – £70p Clinique Full Potential lipgloss – £1, all carboot sale. I’ve not used this properly yet as my Mum has decided she likes it, but it seems to be more of…

Today I got rather burnt on my holiday! But I did visit a beautiful garden with lots of pretty birds and water features and have a big yummy dinner. Before I left for holiday I prepared a load of blog posts to publish whilst away, so here’s another short one. Here are some of the goodies I’ve picked up recently in charity shops. Nothing too exciting, but bargains are always fun! The little tiny middle deer ornament is made by Wade and I picked it up for £1 from a second hand shop. The other two kitsch vintage fawns were…

Nothing makes me feel better than finding a good bargain, and knowing it’s preloved makes it that bit more special. Waste can be a big environmental problem these days so it’s always nice to know you’re ‘rescuing’ an item from the landfill and reusing it instead. And charity shops also have the extra bonus because as well…

I’ve been on a few mini trips to the shops lately trying to get prepared for Christmas, and I’ve picked up a few random bits for myself along the way! Today I went to London with my 8 year old niece; we went to Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park! But I’ve been soooo ill the last few days so we didn’t spend long in London. I’ve had some kind of stomach bug and now I’ve just got a full on nasty cold! Hope I’m better by Christmas! So here’s what I’ve bought lately 🙂 I bought a vintage set of…
