There's nothing to beat some retail therapy for brightening up a cold, dull January day. The mere sight of a charity shop never fails to get my pulse racing and on entering the hallowed ground my heart is all of a flutter. No clothes rail is left overlooked whilst boxes of bric-a-brac, tangles of beads, bangles and conjoined belts, shelves of books and baskets of underwear are rifled through in the hope of uncovering a hidden gem.
Today's finds in the British Heart Foundation included a TopShop ditsy print ruffled blouse for £2.99 and some TopShop suede pom-pom pumps for 1.99
These vintage glass decanters were 10p each from the Salvation Army and perfect for filling with brightly coloured bubble bath.
Despite today's weather, Jacob, my 34 year old tortoise decided to make an early appearance from his winter hibernation.
