Obviously, my first port of call was Topshop to see the wonderful coat that captured my heart last week! Alas, the dangers of falling in love with a picture on a website were all too evident :( The faux fur was coarse, the leopard spots were a lot more spot and not very much leopard, and, worst of all, the fit was altogether unflattering. At least there was no call for wrestling with my conscience on the shop floor over whether I could justify parting with £98. I don't see how I could have justified more than £20 for it.
So, as I technically saved myself nearly a hundred pounds, I bought myself a few little treats.
I happened to be walking in the vicinity of Hotel Chocolat, and the gravitational pull of all that chocolate dragged me right through the door. They were giving out samples of their Raspberry Ripple Puddles, which were very nice indeed. I don't know how it happened, but before I knew it I was stood in the queue with a selection of yummies. I got salted caramel and praline marbles, Dizzy pralines, Salted Soft Caramels and Dark Chocolate Brownie Chocs. The salted caramel and praline marbles are amazing, I had them before quite a while ago but then they were discontinued, but now they're back and I'm very pleased :) I know I'm on a diet, but with fancier (and pricier) chocolates like these I don't eat them in a binge like I might a bar of Galaxy, I eat them more slowly to properly enjoy them, so overall I eat less. That's my theory anyway.

I think that's more than enough of me for now,
Hope you're well,
