And Other Stories...

OMG I am so excited! My favorite store H&M is opening a new brand called & Other Stories. They are opening stores in Barcelona, Berlin, Copenhagen, London, Milan, Paris and Stockholm this spring. The London store is on Regent Street at the site where Mamas & Papas used to be- it’s a big store over 3 floors if I remember rightly.
The store opens on Friday 8th March- I will be there! If you sign up to their mailing list www.stories.com you will be able to buy online from Thursday!
Oh dear- my bank manager is NOT going to be pleased!
Here's a few choice images from their tumblr http://and-other-stories.tumblr.com/ - check it out to whet your appetite...

Instagram Lover x

I opened my instagram account half way through last year & very quickly became obsessed! I've become un-enamoured with Facebook- too many adds & too many idiots. But what I like about Facebook is the photo's, the voyeurism, lets face it I'm just plain nosey! 
Instagram's great because it's not just peoples babies and random nights out, its more snapshots of their lives, a truer representation of them selves, you like something, you snap it, make it look pretty & post! Plus people post and repost beautiful images, cute images (baby animals anyone?) - plus two of my favourite things fashion & food!!! I'm totally sold. I'll post my own photo's quite often so I thought I'd post the last few posts from others I've liked & give you some ideas of who to follow. 
I'd like to follow you so please post your instagram contact in comments & I'll check you out! Looking forward to meeting you!!!

The Londoner's Blogger's Lunch

A few weeks ago I saw a post from The Londoner who had the genius idea of arranging a bloggers lunch in London. Somewhere to grab a cocktail, pizza and meet some lovely fellow bloggers. If you don't follow Rose aka The Londoner check out her lifestyle blog, always there to add some interest to a boring lunch hour, filled with tales of her antics and lovely recipes- Slutty Brownies anyone? Rosie also has a gorgeous tumblr called A Nice Little Tumblr which I love to scroll through every now and again to fill my tired eyes with some beautiful images to make my heart sing! Any hoo- Rose very kindly organise a get together at B-Soho on Poland Street.

I picked out my outfit (very important!) and braved the snow and arrived fashionably late to the party on my own, fought my way to the bar and ordered a January friendly lime & soda. Feeling a little nervous at the prospect of integrating myself into the throng I was very kindly rescued by a quintet of lovely ladies who had also come alone.

A good time was had by all, we chatted and talked living in London, blogs even a little politics! Of course we swapped details eager to share our blogging fruits... Please have a look and follow!






It was great to meet Sophie, Vivi, Candace, Virgina & Eveliina (who I promise I will meet up with!!)

Also don't forget to check out Rose's blog's:
