Do you have a purchase that brings a smile to your face?

I'm also rather pleased with another of my recent purchases. A special mug just for me to use while the kiddiwinks are at school. Its a beautiful Cath Kidston mug. It is such a pleasure to use and it came in its very own little tin. Think I'll use the tin for a special stash of biccies just for me :)
I was also very lucky to be Lonely Hearts 50th sale on Folksy. For which she generously gave me a £5 discount in her shop. There was no hesitation here I knew exactly what I wanted. This bag which is just lush. Buying anymore bags was a big no no for me as I have bought loads (and I mean loads) this year. So with a discount how could I hold back. Well, clearly I couldn't :)

Tonight I am going to be pampering myself. Not by spending money but by giving myself a facial, manicure and pedicure. I was scheduled in for a Dermalogica facial on Monday but I cancelled in a bid to save the pennies. So I thought well I have some yummy beauty products at home, a bottle of wine in the fridge (and some Green & Blacks dark chocolate) so what could be nicer (apart from a salon facial he he). Nope there won't be any ghastly pictures of me in a face mask!! But I did find some pictures on the t'old tinternet that made me smile and hopefully they do the same for you.
Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Wow I've managed to blog everyday in October so far. I'm so very proud of myself and I've even managed to change the look of my blog, just a little. The changes are very pleasing to me if no one else. I've also managed to learn a few technical things, some courtesy of fellow bloggers, that make this blogging malarky a little easier. Anyhow, this is not why I am blogging today its to give you the final instalment of my giveaway wins to date.
So thanks to Anna Ryan at funky diva designs on Etsy I won a fantabulous make-up brush wrap in the most delicious fabric, which I receieved yesterday. Again I've used Anna's pics as you can all do it so much better than me. I'm just one lucky lucky girl. Please take a browse round Anna's beautiful shop by clicking my link (there are some fab goodies using beautiful fabric).

As I say my pictures really don't do justice to the yummy goods that I received from Jennie and yes the eclairs have all gone. Jennie has already passed sale number 200(yes I am that late in blogging about it) and she'll be at sale number 300 before we know it!!
Next up will be Dottie Designs but you will just have to wait and see the pics of the beautiful gift I received.
Thank you everyone for reading and I'll be back ha ha

First I want to change the look of my blog. Its very boring. I want to prettify it. Any help here would be appreciated. Think it will be a rolling change as I get to grasp of how to make the changes and what to change.
So, today at least I've said something. No pictures but some words have been typed.
Bye for now and I promise I will be back again this week. As I said any suggestions would be considered and I love to read any comments :) xx Take care xx

Well I'm not very good at this blogging. Only just started and I fell off the wagon. Its been a whole month since I last posted anything!! So I thought I better just type something, a catch up if you like, even if it ends up being garbled rubbish he he.
My excuse first of all is the summer holidays. Having the kids to entertain leaves very little time for blogging. Just getting my head around twitter so have been spending time on there too. As well as my usual Folksy spending.
We have 6 more sleeps till our holiday too. Which we are all excited about. Maybe, in the future, I'll blog about what a personal milestone this holiday really is. Just maybe, when I get to know you all a little better.
I haven't forgotten about T52MMMC either. I have done a few crafty bits. Today included! Very proud to say I made some earrings and a bracelet. When The kiddiwinks return to school I'll do a big T52MMMC blog with pics :).
So a further round up in words of the summer holidays so far is:
Cooker broken, new cooker, illness for us all, kids at grandparents for 1 whole week, 1 week of freedom for mummy, new haircut, lots of Folksy buying, birthday party, trips to seaside, book club set up, curry night, dinner party arrangements, cheesecake recipe sourcing, lots of book reading, uniform and shoe buying (so expensive), clothes buying, visiting parents, parents announced new move, penpal searching (today) and all the other usual summer chaos of days out/in with a 7 and 4 year old.
Also will do blog posts about the fantastic goodies I received from WhimsicalWren (100th sale) and Trinket Box (giveaway winner). - apologies to these 2 lovely ladies for not doing one yet.
Next post will be after my hols unless I sneak another one in. Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your holidays everyone. Bye for now.
