I had a lovely weekend in Cardiff at my almost-Stepmum's hen do, full of feather boas, drag caberet and willy-shaped straws! But it actually wasn't tacky, I think because a lot of the women were older and/or married we didn't act like a group of sexed-up screaming banshees (although we did see quite a few of those groups while we were out!).
And I also had the oppurtunity to pop into a couple of charity shops; one while on a ten minute train change at Cosham - I decided to go to a charity shop instead of getting food which my stomach was very angry about - and the second when I got off the train in Cardiff - there were three in a row but I only managed to go in one because I had to meet the others.
I picked up a cute little brown bag and a yellow cardi in the first one, and a brooch and a pendant in the second. Here are some pics:
I love the cute price tag on the bag. The picture of me is my outfit of the day, the cardi is nice and warm and I think the pendant goes really well.
So I know everyone is giving up things at this time of year, but I have banned myself from buying anything online this month. It might not be a big deal for everyone, but I don't work near any shops so I do ALL my shopping online. And even though I get loads of bargains I spend so much money every month. So it's going to be quite hard for me! Although I am helped by the fact that a lot of sales are ending, and also because I don't have any more room for clothes anyway!
I am kind of tempted to not count ebay as online shopping, even though it totally is...
Last thing - if anyone reads this blog and isn't a follower, please can you follow me? It's only so I can see if any more than 11 people are reading, no other reason. Ta!
