Holiday Haul

Last month I went on a coach trip with my auntie to the Cotswolds which included a trip to Highclere Castle where Downton Abbey is filmed which was hugely exciting. On the trip we visited loads of cute little towns and villages which meant that I ended up buying a lot of cute little things from gift shops and antique centres. So, I hope you enjoy seeing what I got and I will be uploading the day by day photo diary soon. Also, if you have any more post suggestions I would love to hear them and I have created in the side bar a poll of which posts you would like to see from me which I would love for you all to vote in!

Postcard, Charles I bookmark, rose soap and 'Sing as though no one can hear you' bangle - Highclere Castle (AKA Downton Abbey) gift shop - they have the best gift shop ever!!
