5 things I like this week


I feel like I have not been on the ‘blogging horse’ lately. Posts few and far between. I guess my ‘real life’ has been quite busy recently (including two weekends not in London) and so the motivation was well and truly lost during the weekdays passing by. But fear not my friends, it is now time to get back on this shit, if any of you give a shit! These are the five things I need/want/dream about this week!

1. Red leather bag from Topshop – looks so soft, mmm. Bloody hell though, since i’ve been writing this blog post it has sold out. It seemed to go in the sale, hot damn…

2. Petit Bateau Navy parka in showerproof cotton – A coat. A nice coat. It’s something I should actually buy, but can’t be bothered to be poor all month to actually buy it.

3. Bear star constellation brooch from Tatty Divine – Shiny and black. Perfect.

4. Petit Bateau heavy jersey shirt – I’m getting my wisdom teeth out this week and I think this will be my reward to myself. A £56 stripey jersey top. Overpriced, yes. Worth it, probably.

5. The White Pepper leather sandals – I bought these, they shall be with me soon, so soon! Maybe not the most practical shoes ever for winter but whatever, I DON’T CARE! Socks and tights are the best combo ever so i’ll be able to whip that out a lot with these… I love most items on The White Pepper. There is serious restraint on this keyboard right here.

“It’s cleaner high up and the air’s fresher, AND there is less dusting to do!”

This documentry by the BBC, part of the Britain on Film series, is the best thing I’ve seen in ages. Filmed in the 60’s and put together recently with archived footage, it’s incredible. This episode is based on housing and is full of amazing 60’s high rise flats and what it is like to live inside them.

5 things I like this week


1. Mini skirt in cow print. Moo moo milky from Zara – Cow kinda goes well with this dusky pink don’t you think?

2. Nice and warm wooly jumper from Topshop – SEPTEMBER is the best month! Cold and warm, but the best month for wearing the best clothes. Jumpers, boots, tights. But not too cold or rainy (good for the fringe.)

3. Mulberry Alexa in Blush – Well good if you have got £1100 to chuck at a bag, which by the way I do not. But I can think about it yeah? Though would I just get mugged if I ever bought a nice bag? Someone tried to rob me on my bicycle when I only had a tote bag! Like really, is this a concern in London!? Can you insure expensive bags?

4. Little metal bracelet from COS – I’m getting all matchy matchy here. Would look cute with the jumper though I think!

5. Amazing Abigail boots from Topshop – Well, i’ll probably buy these, because I am obsessed with boots and always buy them from Topshop despite their boots always getting ruined within a couple of months..

5 things I like this week


1. Deadly Ponies Mr mini fill n zip fur handbag from Celestine Eleven. – How amazing is this? If only it wasn’t £530…

2. Blue NW3 Charlie Dress from Hobbs. – Very simple and such a nice cut. Would be the kind of dress you can wear in lots of different ways! Think the uniform project.

3. Beige vinyl coat from Topshop – very 60’s. Love love love.

4. Fluffy pink jumper from Topshop – Hurry along now summer, there’s too many pretty knits to wear come the colder temperature. Dressing for summer sucks.

5. Paris pencils from Etsy – I want to go back to Paris so much. These would do for now though I guess!
