and I've been putting out fire with gasoline

Happy Friday lovelies! Before I start rattling on, let's all just take a moment to appreciate the fact that this is my second post of the week...crazy right?! Maybe I am getting better at posting after all. Anyway, on Sunday my parents and I took a lovely afternoon trip down to Brick Lane to get some bits and bobs and grab a coffee somewhere. The weather was absolutely gorgeous for once, and as us English get a little over-excited at the rare occurrence of a sunny day, there were even ice cream vans out. It was also incredibly busy as Sunday is the day of the Sunday Up market on Brick Lane, which means stalls of food, games on the street, an indoor market...the list goes on. It's by far my favourite day to visit, and I got a good few things for school and upcoming birthdays and the like. 
 
 
 
 
 
I wore my cut-off dungarees from Beyond Retro, shoes from Rokit, shirt from the east end thrift store (it worked out to cost me less than £1!) and socks and bag from Topshop. My necklace is from Urban Outfitters. The bracelet I'm wearing is from Hirst Antiques, which I wrote about in this post. I love bangles and felt this one added just enough of an edge to my outfit without being too attention-grabbing.

(beautiful magazines. I like to treat myself to one every now and again....on this occasion I bought a copy of Excess (It is so perfect, each shoot is like a dream) though I have been known to opt for Oh Comely, Lionheart, Nylon etc.)
 
(street art I liked...acknowledge that I had to take this picture out of a car window. The things I do)
 
 
 
 

I'm going to be Bridesmaid at my cousin's wedding tomorrow, which is both equally exciting and slightly daunting...I am supposed to be having my hair and makeup done professionally, which will be a totally new experience as I usually like to do it myself and the way I like it. I'm excited though, as the artist did the hair and makeup at the wedding I went to in April and it looked amazing, so fingers crossed it will turn out just as nice on me! I'm sure I'll get some photos for this here blog so you'll be able to judge for yourselves.
Have a lovely weekend,
