Birthday and tea

Yesterday me and Mike went to the park and then for afternoon tea as today I turned 22. We were the only ones in the whole restaurant which was quite eerie but nice and relaxing in comparison to other restaurants where you are pretty much sitting on peoples laps listening to their conversations. We also did some charity shopping and plenty of walking so it was nice to unwind with a cup of tea at the end of the day.

Me and Mike have been decorating our bedroom. The lighting was so beautiful on Sunday, I decided to take a few photos.

Thrifty designer goods

I picked up this beautiful Vivienne Westwood purse for only £4.50 from the charity shop British Heart Foundation. My lovely friend Sara tipped me off about it one evening and the following morning I made the mad dash to claim it. It has a couple of marks and has clearly been used but I don't mind. I remember I once read a story about someone finding a Vivienne Westwood ring in a charity shop for £5 and never thought anything remotely similar would happen to me so I am very grateful for this purchase.

I also ventured to a local jumble sale. I don't usually have much luck with jumble sales but as boot sales are coming to a close I am trying to go to more jumble sales to feed my thrifty addiction. I spotted a huge table of 20p clothing but after about 10 minutes of hunting through and arm ache I gave up. Luckily I didn't leave empty handed and found this 1980's Chanel no.19 atomiser for a mere 30p! Despite the bottle inside being empty I just couldn't walk away.
