Selfridges and a concert!

First of all can I say hats off to everybody else who is much better organised than me and still blogging away during the school holidays! I am afraid chaos reins here and admist all our days out, crafting, and general holidaying and reading all of your blogs(!) I am failing miserably at keeping up to date with mine! BUT here I am now, so this weekend guess where we went?!
Have you ever seen a stage like it?!
Of course we couldn't possibly go to London without a pilgrimage to my favourite shop first - Selfridges! So we made sure we got parked up early at Wembley and took the tube into town for a quick spot of tea and banoffee pie...
Followed by some shopping .. This is their kitchen department at the moment, a very vintagey vibe going on..
This is their Christmas department, an aladdins cave!
Don't you just love these soldier decorations... £9.99 (gulp!)
And what about these ones from Alice in Wonderland aren't they gorgeous... (a snip at £14.99 each !!!)

A few purchases were made ... (lining Ms Kidstons pockets again...!)
A bit of clothes shopping - a pair of winter boots and a fab cardigan called a DKNY cozy. Have you seen these? My friend told me about them, what a fab idea, a bit pricey but you can wear them 12 different ways so I am hoping to get quite a bit of wear out of mine, as long as I remember how to do it, but you do get a booklet with instructions which is just as well :-)...

Then we had just time for a quick bowl of scrummy noodles, and then back to Wembley for...
the LOUDEST concert I have ever been to and was AMAZING! Did anyone else go?!


  1. Sounds like a fab day!

    I can never resist Selfridges...
    Purchases are always made!
    Usually from CK, but they have a great haberdashery on the 3rd floor too!

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog today :-)

  2. Hi Sally! (I can't make a mistake this time!)
    What a fabby weekend you had!
    Many bloggers went to Selfridge's too!
    Have a good week!

  3. I wonder if we passed each other in Selfridges and didn't even notice!!!

    You have great taste and brought exactly the same 2 purchases as I did from CK the other week!

    My friend went to see U2 and he said it was the best concert ever!
