Thrifting on the 1st Feb...

What better way to start off February, than with a spot of thrifting?

I didn't have a very enjoyable week last week, it was rubbish. I actually ended the week in hospital! (It's a really long story which I won't bore you with, but I'm fine now and it wasn't all that serious). So, to cheer myself up, I took the day off today to recover and met my mum and sis for coffee and thrift time.

First score was this Jigsaw top above. I loved the orangey/terracotta embroidery. £6 from Cancer Research in Bury St Edmunds.

I also found this little cute-cream-coloured-cape (try saying that a few times) for £2.50 from another thrift shop in Bury St Edmunds. I'm not sure exactly what I'll wear this with, but it is really pretty and a nice girlie addition to my wardrobe.

And finally, this union jack belt in Oxfam for £3.99. Bit chavvy... agreed, but I was feeling patriotic. I'm going to try wearing this with a floral dress... not sure why... I just had a vision and in my head it looked good! We shall see...

Before falling ill, my colleagues and I did manage to choose a winner for the competition to be published in my ickle magazine.

We had more than 50 entries, so picking a 'best' was an impossible task. So it came down to what
most suited the February issue. And the winner was... Congratulations!

Thank you all for your entries, they were all fantastic. The magazine is produced monthly, so I may publish some more of the articles as the months go on. I'll be sure to let you know if I do. And feel free to keep submitting articles you feel may be suitable.
