haven't had a dream in a long time

Monday, 9 December 2013

Hello again. It feels like ages since my last post (which was only saturday?!) but I had a really busy weekend and thought I may as well share some of these photos with you, while I have some time at last. Mock exams have literally worked me into the ground, but as they're all done and dusted for this year I can relax a little and get back into blogging more frequently.
As I mentioned in my last post I went to Birmingham for Clothes Show Live on Saturday morning, and then I went to a sleepover party for my friend's birthday. We ate classy kebabs and chocolate brownies and popcorn and watched movies and made a music video to one direction...it was awesome. After a lovely pain au chocolat for breakfast I ventured out to Oxford Street and Covent Garden on Sunday to try and do a spot of Christmas Shopping...which didn't exactly go to plan as I ended up just spending my birthday vouchers in Beyond Retro and Topshop and getting squat for my friends and family. Oops. 































I wore my new shoes (they're camper bowling shoes omgomgomgomg), cardigan, shirt and bag from Clothes Show, with leggings, and my teddy bear socks from Topshop. Taking these pictures was really awkward as halfway through shooting a man decided to pop out from the door behind me, which was totally unexpected and made me completely jump out of my skin.


I absolutely adore this 'Talented Tote' bag from http://www.doodle-bag.com/...it's really sturdy and oh so cute at the same time. The robin logo makes it perfect for christmas too.


We then had dinner out in my favourite place ever (Maxwells in Covent Garden) where I discovered the best restaurant dessert I've ever had...warm apple pie with icing sugar, caramel sauce and cinnamon ice cream. It was like heaven and I wish I had taken a photo to show you but unfortunately it didn't last very long. Afterwards we decided to walk around Covent Garden for a while and soak up all the christmassy atmosphere. I spent forever in the Moomin shop and would have bought lots and lots of cute tin mugs if they hadn't of been so expensive.



That's all I've got for you today...I have a review coming up shortly, and then I'm going to Eleanor Hardwicke's zine launch on Thursday and will probably have a post from then. Hope you're all well,

  1. I went to the clothes show too! The vintage stalls were so good and it looks like you bought some lovely things. Covent Garden is one of my favourite places <3 And I am incredibly jealous of those socks.
