Lidl's Irish Cream v.s. Baileys' Review

I never drink Baileys' at any time of year other than Christmas.  But as soon as things start to get festive, I always buy a bottle, and sip it when wrapping presents, watching Christmas films or getting the decorations up.  Most of the supermarkets do their own version of Baileys', and Lidl is no exception.  But is it any good?

Elf's Day Off from the Workshop

Father Christmas was very kind to give this little elf a day off from the workshop.  I used my down time to take a trip to Cardiff indoor flea market, that was filled with antiques, vintage, shabby chic, junk - and Christmas displays.  I took advantage of the backdrop to make the most of my elf-like attire.  I'm probably a little too tall to be an elf, but I like being helpful, cheerful and wrapping presents, so I fit the job description.

November Purchases

So, did I get a bit spendy in the Black Friday sales?

Nope!  I didn't do any Black Friday shopping whatsoever.  I wasn't really that tempted to be honest, and the day was spent wallpapering instead.  A new skill for me, so it was an educational and cheap day's fun.  What I did buy in November was either off Ebay or from charity shops and car boot sales.

First up was this sweet vintage brooch, charity shop (£1).  Signed 'Sphinx', which I didn't know anything about until I read this on the Susan Caplan website: "Founded in Cheswick, England, Sphinx created costume jewellery of unparalleled quality. International fashion houses purchased and sold them as their own. Sphinx frequently did not sign their pieces so that they could be marked by said houses."
