Here comes the Summer sunshine.

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend, in this beautiful weather! I had a lovely day yesterday, we went back up to Durham for Jonathan's step-mum's birthday and had a yummy meal. We stopped off in Lancaster on the way up, mainly because we'd checked out the weather and it was much colder in the North East! It was about 20 degrees in Lancaster which meant I could walk around in a nice summery dress without my big coat (or cardigan!) on, yeyy! The sun gets me so excited for summer, hopefully this weather is a sign of what is to come, although I doubt it, in unreliable Britain.

Of course a new city meant new charity shops, as you know this is my latest craze, I literally haven't been in Topshop or River Island for a few weeks now. I find my self looking at the prices and questioning if I really need it in my life. I kinda got the hubby into the charity shop spirit, as he's decided that they are a really fab placed to by shirts for work. Especially as half the time they are designer or at least not £3 from Primark and may last longer. Unfortunately he didn't see any he liked, but I will convert him!

I, on the other hand, had another successful trip. After nearly giving up I spotted some gorgeous shoes in a window..

These are my babies. They have literally never been worn (hence the sticker), I'm only a size 5 but I tried them on and they look fab! I can't wait until it's worn enough not to wear tights, these would look perfect with some summery-coloured nails and a cute dress. They are really comfy too, and the best part is I only paid £6.99 for them, I'm totally in love with these shoes.

Have you done anything fun in the sun?
