New Cath Kidston goodies!


Hi all, glad you could pop by to see me, hopefully you're all sheltering from this horrendous weather we've been having this week.
Ive been desperate to show you my purchases from saturdays trip to the outlet shopping village-Bicester in oxfordshire but rubbish pooter has thwarted my efforts thus far!
Now, my main aim was really just to target Cath Kidston, but mum and i had a lovely day(including a pub lunch!)-she fancied a pair of Jimmy Choos but at 2500 pounds we thought perhaps not so she just ended up with a stanly purse in CK!

We took lots of sneaky pics in CK,, it was quite busy so we thought it quite unlikely they'd actually agree to us taking them! It was a lovely shop,quite big, and beautifully laid out, inspirationally bright. I COULD NOT believe how cheap it was, seriously i couldve bought the whole shop. Hopefully you can see the images in my mosiac okay(?)...
Before we set off i didnt have a set idea of what i wanted so i mooched around for an hour or so and heres what i selected..

I just had to have this wallet, for 12 pounds i couldnt leave it there could i?...and it matches my new ck paisley bag...

A little wash mitt for just two pounds, how cheap?

Two fabulous little make up bags(below),and another tea towel(above) to add to the 'do not use under any circumstances'pile, again LOVE the prints...
A new set of oven gloves as my old CK ones are a bit passed it now...

And very useful little nail kit in the adorable grey bird oilcloth...

You may have also noticed a little red spotty package, in it, is the blue ottoman rose apron i selected for melmel, she got her order in quick when i told her i was going, im sure we'll be visiting again, probably in the easter hols so i'll let you all know in case you need anything next time!
I also picked up the green checked box-which the flowers are on top of in the second photo, i needed it for all of my letter writing 'stuff' and it was only two pounds.
All in all a great little lot of goodies i think, i could have bought more but there was nothing else i really wanted, so i thought i'll wait a while until there is something specific on my 'wants and needs' list, and get it then as i'll appreciate it more.
So now i can happily revel in the new bits of CK dotted around the house/in my bag, for a few more weeks, i wonder what'll be next on my list???......

I've been waiting to see what you bought Kirsty. I'm going to brave the drive to Bicester sometime soon, I MUST visit CK. I must admit to using my CK tea towels and got one tea stained the other day :o(. Do you know my hubby keeps checking out your blog, incase he see's a pic of your landrover, or any tractors, :o) Men! xxxx
