Back in March I took part in a blogger competition (see my entry here) to renovate a piece of furniture, and I was lucky enough to win first prize! I was so so excited as the prize was a £300 NotOnTheHighStreet voucher and I love their website. I picked out all of my goodies right away and eagerly awaited their arrivals.

I forgot to add quite a few things to my new homewares post yesterday, so I thought I’d share them with you now before I forget again..  I found these extra deep cake tins in Wilko.

Primark has had some pretty good stuff in recently, and I’ve managed to find quite a few bargains. I did go off Primark a bit over the summer season as their quality had gone down hill a bit and the prices seemed to have increased. But lately I’ve refound my love for Primark once more and it’s a frequent Sunday afternoon destination for me! Here’s my latest buys from November..  I love wearing check prints in winter, and I found this…
