Jack Wills

I was pleased to find that Selfridges in Birmingham have opened a Jack Wills concession (even if it is a small one!)
My love for this brand started during the summer when I was fortunate enough to visit the quaint little town of Salcombe, Devon.
It was on my excursion through the little high street that I stumbled across the brand with the famous pheasant logo.
All though I am now pretty much addicted to this shop (and will probably be purchasing a few Christmas gifts from here in the near future) I was a little upset to realise that the products I have purchased so far are not quite as 'British' as the slogan 'fabulously British' would have you believe!!

A little self indulgent haul before Christmas!

It has been a while since I have brought any make-up products or clothes (been watching my pennies) but this week during my 'stay-cation' I went a little crazy!

Making the most of my last few holiday days this year , I have managed to combine days out with some retail therapy.........this was the result!

Last but not least.............. Dress from George

Recent travels

With the rapid approach of the end of this year and the threat of loosing my annual vacation days, I decided to do a bit of a 'stay-cation' and visit the places I had been talking about visiting all year.

It turned out to be a very eclectic 5 days off work with visits to Oxford, Bicester, Blenheim Palace, Birmingham and even a short stay at a local spa!

Has anyone else done a stay-cation this year?
