My lovely friend, and loyal cat sitter Laura, recently went to Bath and brought me back a souvenir! Souvenirs you can eat are my favorite.

This was the first time I’ve had a ‘Bath Bun’, best to start with one of historical significance and import! Definately recommend a Sally Lunn Bun next time you find yourself in the historic town of Bath!

 

 

Landed back in London late Sunday night. So thankful that the Eurostar pulls in just short ten minutes from my flat so getting home was relatively easy(I sat relatively because getting a cab from Kings Cross is ab loody nightmare). There’s only an hours time difference between London and Paris so we avoided major jet lag but that doesn’t mean I did wake up with post holiday exhaustion.

With two suitcases and two duffel bags to unpack, our holiday clothes to wash(plus two weeks of backed up laundry because our washing machine broke and was finally replaced while we were away), dry cleaning to drop off, bed clothes to take the laundrette(British washing machines are small and I hate them), orders placed in my online shop while I was on holiday to package and post, and of course a restock for my fridge, I had a long ass day ahead of me. To be honest I didn’t really have much energy or brain power to commit to coming up with a look. I did though, because… what can I say I have a gift?!

I finished the ‘in house’ portion of my TO DO’s list and put together an outfit that didn’t end up seeing the light of day, it was more of a look than I actually had the energy to carry off so I took it down a few notches and ended up with a casual and comfy look that didn’t feel like too much. This happens a lot, I’ll put together a look in my head that doesn’t translate into reality how I’d hoped, or more often than not I don’t have the confidence to wear a look I’ve put together so end up toning it down considerably. I don’t get it right every time, and I don’t always look good, and that’s normal.

It was really hot in London yesterday, so cool comfort was in the cards, and with all the stuff I had to lug around I went with my MASSIVE Juicy handbag. I started with that as my foundation; and I did comfort and practicality my way.

I’m working on a blog about my holiday in Nice and Paris as well as a ‘HOW TO PACK’ guide too! Susbcribe so you don’t miss it!

 

Sunday we had planned to buy a new sofa. We headed down to the Loaf show room in Spitalfeilds measuring tape in hand. It was too big! 2″ stand between me and my dream sofa!

We went home via Spitalfeilds Market and ate our feelings. Lamb shwarma from Berber Q and the most delicious authentc Taiwanese  Pearl Milk Tea from Yifang Tea.

Amsterdam: a photo essay.

I shot a whole roll, the first day I was there… then realised I was so stoned I hadn’t actually put a roll of film in the camera. RIP all those photos that never were.
