We’re baaaaaack! Hooray, it’s so lovely to be home! We had such a wonderful ‘staycation’ – lots of good food, fine wine and happy times – and now we’re totally shattered and ready for a sleepy Sunday evening.

We visited some amazing charity shops in the city, including a great Salvation Army with such lovely, friendly staff! I found a fur stole I was really desperate to buy but at £15 and with the Mr giving me disapproving looks, I left it behind. I still feel really sad about it! I’ll definitely be back when my shopping ban is over, hunting down more bargains!

Before I shuffle off into an evening filled with pasta, PJs and trashy telly, I wanted to announce the winner of my elsiebelle competition… the lovely Vicky from LadyBug Says! Well done Vicky, I’ve emailed you!

To everyone else who entered (and anyone who loves fabulous jewellery) – don’t dispair. You can still get your hands on delicious elsiebelle goodies for less… for 20% off (before p&p) at elsiebelle.com just enter the code ALITTLEBIRDTOLDME at the checkout.

Happy shopping, happy Sunday! 🙂



The leopard print coat and red lipstick combo looks amazing! Sounds like you had a lovely weekend and well done for sticking to the shopping ban! x


Love the leopard print fur jacket, I’d love onebut boyf gives me funny look every time I stroke one!

When the shopping ban is lifted you’ll have to go on a major charity shop day to make up for it 🙂

Happy Sunday x


Totally jealous of your brogues! I have no luck because of my tiny feet. Glad to hear you had a nice time!

Glad you had a great weekend. I really do love York, it’s so beautiful.

I love the polka dot dress, is it recent Primark stock?

Love, Amy Marie.


So glad you had a lovely time! That dress is beautiful – you’ve found some real primark gems, I never find anything as nice as that when I go in! xo


Glad you had a good time Jen, both outfits are gorgeous as always!
Bad luck on the stole, very madmen!

Glad you had a great time! Love both outfits of course, especially that leopard coat! I have one kind of similar, I should bust it out more often 🙂


Glad you are back, sounds like the break was just what you needed. I’m afraid I’m with Mr on the fur!
Love both your outfits and want that dress!

Well done on sticking to the shopping challenge. Hopefully if you were meant to have it, it’ll still be there when you’re allowed to spend.
