Opps I Did It Again

Its confirmed I have absolutely no self control when it comes to shopping abroad!

I've just got back from a flying visit to Paris, I got in late last night had a presentation this morning and then managed to sneak in a trip to the Vallee Village which is an outlet village similar to Bicester Village. As lovely as the Vallee Village is it is the Vallee Europe mall that gets me every time and to be honest it is one particular store...the huge SUPERMARKET!!! I can spend literally hours wandering the aisles. Today it was the
fish counter that caught my eye the most.


I truly believe that if we had fish counters like this in UK supermarkets more people could be persuaded to try fish and most importantly try different types of fish rather than stick to the old over fished favourites. Everything on the counter looked delicious and was affordable.

As its not really practical to take fish on a plane I had treat myself to something a little more portable...and what better than some marzipan fruit and veg! They count towards my 5 a day right!?

I did pop into a few other shops while I was there (it would have been rude not to!) and I am not the new owner of the perfect party outfit...

Top - Zara

Skirt - Zara

Necklace - Maje

Bag - Bershka

I did also buy the best black trousers from Zara, I have been on a black trouser mission since last winter and finally I have found them...slim fitting, super flattering and not too long for a shorty like me!

Age But Not Before Beauty!

Last Tuesday I headed off for the much lauded Sunbury Antiques Market at Kempton Racecourse and boy did it live up to the hype...I came away with not only a ton of inspiration, but also some truly unique pieces - a very pink fox fur hat, a pretty silk handkerchief, green glass necklace and a beautiful brooch for my Mum for Christmas (not shown here - no peaking Mum!)

I can't wait for winter to arrive so I have an excuse to wear my unashamedly pink hat!

There was an incredible amount of spectacular furniture, but unfortunately it will be a while before I have a house big enough to fit my favorites!
