I almost couldn’t contain my excitement over Cath Kidston coming to Newbury, I was actually really gutted to miss out on the opening and a complimentary Cath Kidston Newbury button badge. Nevertheless, I had Saturday to get my fix and one of the first things I did last Saturday morning was get down to Parkway and pop into the new store.
I must admit that I was a little disheartened as the décor is a little less exciting than previous Cath Kidston shops that I’ve visited but it’s still full of all the lovely things that make Cath Kidston the brand it is. I’ve got a little saving to do but it’s safe to say I’m planning on being a frequent visitor.
Seeing items in the kids section in Cath Kidston can tend to end in disappointment. If I was little enough I would basically dress in their kids range from head to toe. That fox scarf and hat are so cute and although I hate them, I might stretch to lusting after those wellies a little.
It’s so nice to see Cath Kidston stocking Quail now rather than their imitation version. These cuties are the perfect match to my money box but I still have my heart set on the pug ones I mentioned a few weeks ago.
I was tempted by a great pair of winter pyjama bottoms but as they’re something I don’t need right now I didn’t pick them up but I did manage to get a few things, two out of the three items were even things I needed so it was a successful Cath Kidston trip yet again!
Sunglasses case: £12
It even came with a glasses cleaning cloth (is that the right word, it doesn’t sound like it?), which was a nice touch as I hate finger prints and the like, particularly covering my eyes.
It also has vitamin E, which I’m convinced explains my almost instantly ‘less-gross’ nails after a nail-biting binge around a week ago. I can only recommend it and although I admit it’s far from budget, you don’t need a lot at a time so it will last ages. For the amount you get, I think the price is incredibly reasonable considering the difference it’s made so far it’s actually great value against similarly priced brands.
