Camden

Camden, a place where you can eat, shop and rave. Camden is one of my favourite spots in London, yes it does get a lot of tourists, but if you ignore all those people, there are treasures to be found and talented people selling their wares. I think the key to a good market is diversity and Camden definitely has that!
Take Cyberdog for example. This place is Mecca for anyone who loves to rave...hardcore!If you want want PVC, fluorescent clothes and masks, this is the place to go. You cannot miss it, as the beats blare throughout the market!
Boots galore. I love the look of second hand leather boots as the leather has that lovely worn in look.

Apologies for the photos, I took them on my phone! There are so many gems to be found in some of the stores, I was so tempted by the blue top with the silver sequins.....

How cool are the old Varsity jackets?!
I need some of this china! I do love a good cup of tea (I'm Irish, what else do you expect!), and what better way to enjoy your tea than out of some beautiful dainty cups!

Somethin' old Somethin' new

I received my goodies from ASOS the other day, kind of hid them from the boyfriend.....I'll slowly show them to him over the coming weeks/months so he doesn't freak out!! Don't get me wrong, I buy everything with my own money, but I end up in my overdraft A LOT.....so he frowns at me sometimes :o)
I'm getting quite into shirts these days. I love the button detail on the shoulder.....
Kinda gives the shirt a military feel.
I wasn't too sure if I was going to like this dress, but it's so beautiful on! This picture doesn't really do the dress justice as you can't see how the different layers drape. Well it looks like this on (except I don't look like this model!!!)
I think this is my favourite buy by far.
This dress is quite simple. I do love an over sized/slub style dress. Hides your belly after you've had a huge Sunday roast!!!
The zip detail on the shoulders gives this simple dress a bit of "oomph".

Matt black spike earrings.


This is my something "old". Got this leather bag in Gran Canaria about 10 years ago (that makes me feel old). The strap broke a couple of years ago and I just got it fixed the other day. I really love this bag, for some reason it makes me think of the 70's and music festivals! I'm going to start using this bag a lot more in Spring/Summer. Speaking of which, received the H&M Spring season magazine through my letter box today. Damn you H&M.....now I've got plans for my next pay cheque!



Ooh leopard print maxi dress, yesssss please and thank you!

Girl Crush.....

I must confess, I have a crush on these two ladies. They are both quite different, but they both have great individual style.
Rihanna and Emma Watson.....!



Do you rate these ladies?!

I HATE SALES......kind of

YO.

I don't know about you, but I HATE sales. People turn into animals and many other kinds of unmentionables. Look, if you didn't like it enough to but it at full price, why are you tearing the woman's hair out next to you to save a few quid?!
