Books A Million is a great bookstore with Joe Muggs coffee. We usually go in there on a Sunday morning for a coffee after we walked the dog, and to catch up on some new books and magazines. We found a great new cook book called 'Double Delicious! Good, Simple Food for Busy, Complicated Lives' by Jessica Seinfeld. The recipe's are laid out very clearly, there are not loads of ingredients, and each one has the calorie count at the bottom of each page. The graphics and colours are all very retro, I think this one is going to find it's way into our kitchen sometime soon !
The store also had these these bright covers for your keys, we loved the graphics and thought they are a great idea :
We had to look twice when we saw these ! I am the Mustache Poo, Andrea's the Nerdy Poo with the glasses, which one are you ?
We also found some cute 3D cards, each one creates a stand up scene as you open it up :

Cage The Elephant is a band from Bowling Green, Kentucky that got together in 2006. The band has built up a large following in the US, the UK and Canada for their distinctive sound and high-energy live performances. This is a track called Shake Me Down :
We were in Bath & Body Works at the weekend, the wonderful window graphics pulled us in. The whole store is jam packed with a bright fruity summer like palette. Some of the packaging is equally inspiring with tropical graphics and colour co-ordinated labelling. Having never been in one of these stores before, it is definitely something that we will be checking to see what seasonal changes they make.
