I'm Back!!!!!

and determined to continue this time.

I have a lot of catching up to do and some people I need to contact. Will try to get some of it done in the next day or to as I have some photos to download etc.,

In the meantime, the Cath Kidston Christmas Gift guide has just been posted through my door. And what amazing eye candy it all is!! There is so much in there that is tempting me and yet I am trying hard not to spend

So here is my challenge: I will not buy from Cath Kidston but will attempt to create the look through cheaper alternatives.
I have already started as I have bought this for £6.90:instead of this from CK for £15:
And this for £2.30:

Instead of £5 from CK:
