Item of the day: Poirot from Waterstones

When I was Christmas shopping in Truro a few backs I popped into Waterstones, as you do, and marvelled at the festive paperbacks. I fell for these beautiful editions of Poirot - The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding and Hercule Poirot's Christmas. Aren't they just the perfect stocking fillers for bookworms? I have to admit,… Continue reading Item of the day: Poirot from Waterstones

Item of the day: The BFG from Waterstones

I'm a sucker for beautiful books and the latest edition of The BFG is no exception.

Instagram is a wonderful thing but it doesn't half increase my wish lists! I spotted this beautiful edition of Peter Pan on Waterstones' Instagram and it just screamed out "I'm so much cooler than that other edition you shared last week!" And it's right. Look how pretty! It's only £9.99 too!

Item of the day: Audrey Hepburn tote bag from the National Portrait Gallery

I'm gutted that I can't make the Audrey Hepburn exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery (day trips on the train to London are virtually impossible when you've got a three-month old) and have been perusing the online shop on their website to make up for it. I love the quote on this tote bag -… Continue reading Item of the day: Audrey Hepburn tote bag from the National Portrait Gallery
