A Little Excess Baggage....


Does anyone else believe that money spent during your holiday doesn't count?!


I started spending my money in duty free on Chanel, Mac and this gorgeous Lulu Guiness bag




and mum treated me to this bag to use on the trip




Linens and Lace from Burano, some was purchased in a shop that Elton John had visited!




Sorry the picture isn't great but there are curtains... napkins... coasters and hankies here


Venetian Postcards




Beautiful Tassels




Italian Toiletries




Tea Towels and a mask to decorate




Italian sweets and a pretty fan




and Lavender goodies by L'Occitane




Of course I couldn't forget my blog friends so here is some things I found to giveaway to one of you lucky people




The winner will receive everything you can see in the photo above!


Just leave a comment on this post by 6pm GMT Tuesday 15th July and feel free to spread the word!


I completely forgot my manners yesterday and didn't say thank you to everyone who had left comments to say have a great holiday! Thank you all!!!

Lola Enchanted said...

Hello~
Yes, it DOES NOT count!!!!
very pretty stuff!~

Alison Boon said...

Looks like Italy was lots of fun. I definitely think holiday spending isn't the same as everyday spending, perhaps that's why I have to ignore the first credit card bill after the holiday. I just pay a huge amount and open the next one. Much nicer.
