Mini Primark Haul - April 2015

Love them or hate them, Primark is great when your freelancers purse strings are a bit tight and you feel like a treat. There are some things I probably wouldn't buy in there, but the store is great for basics, and PJ's - I am slightly addicted to Primark PJ's - love the fluffy Winter ones, and their Summer collection. So here's a haul post to share a few of the super cute things I bought, and a few bargains as well.

Cardigan - £5

This was an impulse buy I found on a sale rack. I did need more in the way of cardigans and it's lovely and warm and comfortable, perfect for this weather when it can get a bit chilly. Hopefully it will hold out well in the wash and last a long time, really happy so far - it just attracts the bits if you're sitting on the grass in the sunshine.

Trainer Socks - £2.50


Super cute Care Bear motif, a nice fit and good range of colours (purple, blue and pink). Impulse buy I had to have and I think good value for the quality and being a licensed product.

Basic T-Shirts - £1.50 each



One thing I'm often buying each season in Primark, as old ones wear. These are from one of their basic ranges, with a slightly looser fit which I liked. Great range of colours and styles in the t-shirt aisles here. Always happy with the quality and value of the basic shirts as well.








Mickey Mouse PJ Top - £4.00


Almost like a Japanese cute Tsum Tsum Mickey, really cute design, great for summer, and ideally goes with a pair of PJ bottoms I have at home (with nothing to go with). Just a pity they didn't have matching bottoms in store instead of tiny shorts. This will be great for the summer though.







Little Mermaid PJ Set - £10.00

Bright, colourful and full of all the characters from the film on the bottoms, with an on-trend American style print on the top. They came up a bit bigger than their sets usually do, but still fine for a PJ fit, and they are still fairly light for warmer weather, and wearable in autumn as well. I love this store for Disney PJ's!!

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Cake Of The Week - Weetabix Loaf Cake (Guest Post)

  Have you had your Weetabix?!   As promised in last week's post, I bring you a healthy cake ( well as healthy as cake can be!) that is full of fibre, uses no fat, contains one of your five a day, and is as cheap as chips to make. Has my fab marketing pitch sold it to you yet? The quirk to this recipe? The main ingredient is that old breakfast favourite, Weetabix! I can almost see a few noses wrinkle up but please don't let this put you off. This is a lovely moist, fruity bake with a slightly chewy outer that sits perfectly with a teatime cuppa, and is great for lunch boxes as it travels really well.   I would definitely recommend giving this bake a whirl to share with your nearest and dearest. Don't spill the beans about the main ingredient and see if anyone can guess!   For this week's bake you will need the following equipment:  a 2lb loaf tin, baking paper, a mixing bowl,  a wooden spoon and a teaspoon.   Ingredients: 3 Weetabix biscuits ( own

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car
