Good friends are hard to find. I am so lucky to have both "met" and actually met some wonderful friends through blogging and Twitter. It came out of the blue really, when I started blogging it was all rather anonymous. I naturally assumed it would stay that way and yet over the months and years I've grown very attached to people I regularly communicate with and really got to know. This Christmas I was very lucky to be given some thoughtful presents with this knitted Hobbs tank being sent to me by Alice, when I opened the pretty packaging I was so excited to find such a perfectly 'me' item! This is something I will truly get much use out of and will treasure for years to come.

I've definitely found my Autumn/Winter signature style and hopefully it's one I can happily stick to for the coming years with only a few additions now I have so many pieces I can put together. Blouses are my new weakness it seems but it is so difficult to miss out on one that ticks all the boxes. This week I mulled over my shopping habits after prompting from a few different sources, questioning how much I buy, where from and how much for. Pretty much everything is from charity shops these days and mostly sub £5 an item, sometimes considerably below. I probably buy too much. In fact I definitely buy too much, my clothes wont fit in my large wardrobe and yet most of them get worn, some frequently. Parting with any is difficult and I'm often raging that I've got rid of something that I really wish was still in my possession. You can't win. On the plus side, however, my spending is all going to good causes, I'm supporting a wide variety of causes from research into chronic illnesses to supporting the elderly and animal care so even if my shopping is a little over the top, my generosity shouldn't be brought into question. Clear conscience.
