Five things I like this week

fthingsjune2

1. Blue JuJu jelly shoes! – I have these in glitter but pretty much want them in every other colour, they’re so comfy and go with a surprising amount of clothes! From Topshop.

2. Orange ankle socks – mm good colour. Goes perfectly with my other favourite colour at the moment (blue), from Cos

3. Lapin & Me sunshine baby lapin lamp! – What a perfect shade of yellow. I am scared of the dark so it would be perfect to sleep next to.. Buy here.

4. Light acid wash denim pinafore skirt – Love this, it’s mega cute and only £20. From River Island.

5. Bunting necklace from Tatty Divine. – Bunting is like the illustrators cliche, and maybe a bit twee at times.. but I think this necklace is a bit less twee than most bunting themed items!

24 and not much wisdom

I promise blogging will resume soon, I turned 24 at the weekend so was busy being spoilt. But at the same time one of my wisdom teeth (bottom right to be precise) decided to come through to say hai and infect me, and I have to say… pretty much the worst.pain.ever. Anti-biotics, painkillers and rest for me.

Cute ring, right? Don’t think mine looks like that though.

The new Boards of Canada album Tomorrow’s Harvest is being transmitted live tomorrow at 9pm UK time . I cannot wait! Lets hope the site doesn’t crash (a la MBV… festival tickets and every other thing like this in the world..). The album is being released officially June 10th. I’ve waited patiently for this, they are my favourite electronic artists of all time. Maybe I will see them live sometime…..

Here is one of my favourite Boards of Canada songs, June 9th. It is also the date of my birthday so I think it was meant to be.

Paris pt. 2 – Deyrolle and Blueberry sushi

IMG_4620
We visited Deyrolle which is an amazing shop in Paris! You can buy all the taxidermy in there. They had a giraffe, a polar bear and other big bears, if you had over 20k of euros to spend, this is the place! They have drawers and drawers of beetles, bugs and butterflies that you can select and get put in beautiful boxes too.

(I got told off for taking photos… iphone photos i’m afraid! Would have loved to have photographed EVERYTHING in there!)

Earlier in the week we watched Jiro Dreams Of Sushi which is an incredible documentary based around sushi master Jiro Ono who is still running his business of amazing Michelin Star sushi at the age of 85! It is very inspiring and also made us hungry for Sushi.

I read about Blueberry Maki Bar online and it was in the top 10 reviewed restaurants out of nearly 10,000 on Trip Adviser so we visited! It did not disappoint. The food was perfect, and I don’t really even like sushi..

Feeling rather drunk and full of food we rode the metro back to near our hotel.

I decided the Eiffel tower looks like the Blackpool tower (check out my northern points of reference!)
We walked and explored and ended up in Jardin des Tuileries..DSC_3277
