You know when something is really serious and you really shouldn't even snigger - well, thats when I laugh the hardest

So very tired. Still, what a nice way to start the summer holidays! I've been practising my teenage traits by going to bed at 2.30 in the morning and waking up at midday. Well, I would of woken up at midday but the problem is that I set my alarm for 8.30 in the morning to go on a trick to petticote and brick lane, hence the tiredness.

To tell the truth I was a little dissapointed with petticote lane - it was just cheap crap - however there was one decent stall and I got a bargain nautical dress for a tener!

Brick lane, on the other hand. was pretty amazing. For starters, the atmosphere was great and there were some really funky (yes I do still say funky) people around. I spent two hours in rough trade which is this amazing vinyl store - I just love the music mixed with the bright, crazy covers.

My dad decided to treat me and bought me this nautical catsuite which I had just about fallen in love with. Big time. I was almost crying out of joy when I tried it on - its vintage and nautical - they are two of my main obsessions! I also bagged a bowler hat for 18 pounds which is quite good seeing as most i tried on were around 50 pounds which was a huge rip off!

Then I had to go to beyond retro because that was the main reason I really wanted to go in the first place - and I was, quite frankly, blown away by the rainbow of vintage underskirts pinned to the ceiling! I didn't buy anything and I only spent ten minutes in there because I needed to pick my little sister up form school but I really really need to go back soon!

All in all, a good day, no school for almost eight weeks, the sun was shining and I had quenched my nautical thirst for a day or two. Maybe just a day ...
