The other day I went to Whipsnade Zoo. Instead of a ticket, you pay for an annual pass so I felt I should revisit to get as many visits on my £25. I hope the weather gets a lot nicer so I have more of an excuse to go. I do love the zoo.
Anyway, I purchases a few thingies in the gift shops which I thought I'd share with you. :)
I thought this headband and ring were lovely. I'll really enjoy wearing them in the spring! I was never a huge fan of fabric rings/jewellery but this one I think does actually look like a flower rather than a bundle of fabric.
How cute is this!? I didn't get a picture of the clasp but it clasps tight shut. I don't have a wish to go inside... "I wish for nothing, I can get by, I know so many less lucky than I..." Name that film for brownie points. :)
I overestimated the heat of the sun that day, and went out wearing a vest top and 3/4 length cropped denim jacket so was freezing and grumpy. I saw these lovely feathery fellas and immediately cheered up. They're sooo warm. At the time I was quite gutted there was no cheesy 'Whipsnade Zoo' logo on there...now it's probably for the best...
I love meerkats! I have sooo many meerkat teddies. I hate the "simples!" meerkats as it was thanks to them meerkats became a craze....they were my craze first!! Haha. I was actually really good and put these fellas back on the shelf as I'm trying to a bit more money conscious...but my friend bought them for me. :)
I bought this for my friend. It's a dinosaur pen - only £1.50! He's been named Kenningworth.
Whenever I go somewhere I purchase a pencil as a memory. I did have one from Whipsnade Zoo, but it broke. So I bought a purple one for me and a black one for my friend.
So that's it! Thanks for reading! I have so so so many posts lined up so expect loads coming up. I will leave you with some photos of some animals that I took that day. I didn't take many at all but here are just a selection...
