I was lucky enough to venture into Liverpool on my own this week. Yes, toddler free shopping!!! I know it sounds mean and i love my little boy but he is a wanderer, a runner, he will find the tiniest corner of a shop and hide there until I, flustered and slightly panicked, find him giggling and wrestle him out. So….the propect of going alone is always appealing!
After getting some new shoes and a couple of essentials i wandered into primark (i always try and go as early as possible, as people get a bit loopy after 10am) I found this lovely jam jar glass for £1.50 (wish i had bought 4 now!)
Its cute and everywhere seems to be serving cocktails in these recently as a bit of a modern spit and sawdust twist on a cosmopolitan. I am not sure what im using it for yet, maybe fresh flowers, maybe cutlery at a BBQ, maybe i will just have a big ole cocktail to myself!! (Sounds the more likely option!)
I also bought a couple of lightshades, The pure white paper dome ones with broderie anglaise style holes in. They are so pretty. I am also not sure where or when i will use them but there were too lovely to leave for £2 each! The trouble is, i shop for the house im going to have, not my current one, which means when my future house arrives, all my beautiful wares and purchases will come out of the cupboard and be on show! Does anyone else do this or is it just me?!
I also wandered into Cath Kidston for a peek, I like the style of lots of things in the shop but i like to find my own little treasures and bits from different places. The shop is lovely, really well laid out and you will always find something for someone in there! This trip, i found these for Finn….
Finn is train mad at the moment, he LOVES them. So i got him these as i loved the retro feel and they are lightweight and easy for a picnic. £3 each! He loves them! They are available from the website
