Happiness hit her like a train on a track

5 things that made me smile today:

1 - they played 'this charming man' in starbuck
2 - the sun was shining
3 - watching the world go bye in kensington gardens
4 - the most lovely comments I've ever recieved
5 - Seeing a butterfly. (that sounds kind of soppy!!!)



Sun shining. Double decker red bus. Dragging my Mum to Kensington. No time for Portabello. Popped into urban outfitters. Love that shop. Fell in love with everything. I mean everything. Tried on a cute grey dress but decided against it as have already somehow managed to spend almost all of my money. Hat nearly blew away. Got some starbucks. Went and sat on the sun loungers by the lake in Kensington gardens. Ran away when the man came over (we had to pay to sit on the sun loungers). Got more starbucks. Forgot sunglasses - hence the squinting. Went into American Apparel. Left american apparel. Truthfully, I find it rather boring in there. Got the bus back. Got an ice cream. Went home and ended up watching breakfast at Tiffanies and Roman Holiday back to back.

I'm too lazy to even write in full sentences, whoops!

Just wanted to say thankyou for the lovely lovely comments and the advice on how to tag, I think I understand it all now. Also, some of your '50s film star names' are pretty fantastic!

How was your monday?

This is probably the last post before I leave for the slightly sunnier land of Spain for three weeks - hopefully I will come back with a bit of a tan and lovely pictures to show you all! x

  3. Hi Sophie,
    Left you a reply as comment on my own blog (like THAT makes sense!). Thanks for your comment on mine, just been looking at yours even briefly & immediately added you to my blog roll (streetstylelondon) - please do add me if you'd like.
    Love the photos, the way you write.. it's almost got a Beat Poets vibe. Love those striped chairs, too.
    What did we do today? Drove back from gorgeous North Wales & beaches. 6 hrs. Totally knackered, too.

  16. Sounded like a great day to me! I love Breakfast at Tiffany's and Roman Holiday. They're both amazing. Audrey Hepburn is literally my icon. Have you ever seen Funny Face or My Fair Lady?
    Great photo too.
    Thanks for the comment! It was really nice! And although I wish I could do my own hair and make up that well, it was actually done by a professional make up artist, so it completely fitted the time period. (50's in my case..)

  19. Sounds like you had a lovely time! Starbucks is enough to make my smile even on my worst days. Watching the beauty of nature is so refreshing, I don't know it just fills me up with this warm feeling inside!
