A coffee date

What a busy weekend I've had.  The make up bag and brush wrap that I showed you in my last post have proved to be very popular and I've had quite a few orders to fulfil!  I'll post some pics soon, but as they've only just gone out in the post I don't want to spoil any surprises! 

As my other half was working from home today we decided to take some time out and go on a date!  We try to do this every now and then, making the most of the time our 2 year old is at nursery by spending some time together, just the two of us. 

We headed to a nearby town, had a little browse round the shops, and stopped for coffee....OK, coffee and cake....

My tasty little treat was a raspberry and almond bake....and delicious it was too!

OH went for a scone....topped with lashings of thick clotted cream and strawberry jam, mmmm!

Have you drooled on your keyboards yet?!

While having a look in some shops I spotted this gorgeous cup and coaster set and couldn't resist buying it! 

Isn't it gorgeous? I love it.  It's very Cath (Kidston) like, but without the price tag!

I also needed a few buttons for the make up bags I was making so headed to some of the charity shops that I knew had plenty for sale and managed to find these beauties -

I was specifically looking for large white/cream ones so I was very restrained and only bought what I needed for the job in hand! 

Isn't it lovely when you have a little unexpected outing, and manage to find a few pretties to brighten up your day?


  1. Heehee I drooled on my iPod so technically that doesn't count!! :D I love dates with my husband. With the youngest not yet in nursery and only rare babysittings we have a date night a few times a month at home when the fabulous 4 are all tucked up in bed. Sometimes we're so tired but it's always been worth the effort! Love the pretty items!! :) x

  2. Sounds like a lovely impromptu date! I wish the husband (eeee) and I were able to do it! I love your new products! So lovely! xx

  3. Sounds like a lovely date and some pretty purchases as well :)

  4. :-)
    Yes, I had to clean up some drool after seeing the photo of those scones!!!
