Sunshine and Shopping

Today I enjoyed some shopping and sunshine at McArthur Glen Outlet with my friend Amy.
What I wore:
Pleat skirt New look, Top New Look, Denim jacket H&M and Necklace Topshop

At McArthur Glen there are lots of popular brands such as Ted Baker, Vans, French Connection, Nike, Next and Levis all at discounted prices.

I bought this top from Saltrock RRP £21.99 I got it for £15.99. I love the acid wash/dyed colour of the top I can't wait to wear it!
There were some great sunglasses and handbags but unfortunately I am on a budget this month so no more for me.

Then we went down the road to the beach at Ogmore.Photobucket
such lovely weather! hot and sunny, the water was still a bit chilly though.
There were lots of sheep on the grassy banks by the beach with their little lambys too, so cute! Also imagine living in one of the houses by the beach I would never want to go to work if I woke up to see the sea from my window every day!!

Have you got any bargains recently? How have you been enjoying this heatwave?

Kiss the Cook

A week or so ago over on Beautiful Mess (one of my favourite blogs) they did a post about their favourite cookbooks. I thought this was a fantastic idea, so I want to share with you my pick of the best too.
My favourite recipes are:
From the Moomin Cookbook the Meat and Macaroni Bake and the Ham Pie.

From Hamlyn's Fondue Cookbook the Dutch Fondue and the Cider Fondue

What I also like to do is keep a folder full of pages from supermarket magazines with recipes I would like to try or recipes I have googled searched for on the web. Its a good habit to get into because you will have a good resource for dinner party ideas or just a tasty evening meal for yourself.

If you read my blog much you will know I love River cottage and have recently dabbled in bread baking so this would be the perfect next addition to my shelves.
Handbook no3 Bread

I havent blogged properly in ages I think Ive forgotten how!!

Also swapping from pc to mac has me a bit lost as well, I can't seem to get the hang of the tiny differences :/

Mostly I have been working but here are highlights of the last few weeks:
My friend Vinnie's Alice in wonderland birthday teaparty PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
Visiting the Cotswolds
My newest beauty purchases (Benefit blusher Hervana smells delicious!!)

I will do a slightly more detailed post about the Wonderland party as I made my costume using my sewing machine and there are some pretty photos.

Any post ideas you want to see from me?
