Mini American Haul

Apologies for being AWOL on here recently, I promise to show this blog more love over the next few months. I’ve got a few Christmas baking recipes I can’t wait to share so keep your eyes peeled!

One reason I’ve been MIA is because I was in America for a few weeks for work (wish I could say I was sitting by a pool sunbathing – sadly that was not the case). However, just because the reason behind this trip was business related, doesn’t mean it was all work and no play! There was no way I could leave without partaking in a little shopping trip…because you know what they (I) say, “when in America, shop!”.

Although I was left slightly disappointed with the fashion choices on offer, I did manage to pick up a few bits and pieces.

One store I was most excited about visiting was Target. For any American peeps reading this, you’re probably thinking WTH! But after hearing all about Target on the internet space, I couldn’t wait to check out all the crafty goodness they had to offer. Let’s just say I wasn’t left disappointed, they had everything you could ever want all in one store. From clothing, to makeup through to snacks and homeware, I could’ve easily spent 4 hours browsing…

Down The Cake Hole We Go – Columbia Road Flower Market

I may have lived in London all my life but there are still 1001 hidden gems I have yet to see within the city I call my home.

A couple of weeks back, one Sunday morning, despite the rainy British weather, I thought I’d see more of what’s in my hometown and decided to head on down to Columbia Road Flower Market in East London in search of some flowers to add a bit of life to my rather dull bedroom. Continue reading

Mini Primark Haul

I’m a sucker for bargain buys which is why I try and limit my trips to Primark. On many an occasion I have entered and left with a billion things I never knew I needed and that is exactly what happened when I took a 10 minute trip to the store during my lunch break last week. I thought I’d have a quick browse to pass the time, with no intention of buying anything but Primark seems to have a hold over me, I can never leave empty handed!

Although I moan, I was actually quite pleased with my purchases and thought they deserve to be shared.

Here are the things I bought –

View From The Top

I’ve sorta been obsessed with these “view from the top” shots recently. There’s something about these type of images where all the focus is on your shoes and accessories that I love…..I think it’s because I can go out without a full face of make-up but still get some good shots to put up on Instagram! That’s deception at its best!

It’s also just a really cool alternative way to showcase what you’re wearing rather than the standard mirror selfie.

I love that it makes me look taller than I actually am which is always a plus!
