London's calling








Hello! I went to London yesterday with a friend and had a lovely day of shopping and coffee breaks. I managed to get some cheap things, and didn't go crazy with spending, which ordinarily happens when I set foot in the Oxford Street Topshop, but newly outraged by the prices, I didn't even bother and went to Primark, H&M and New Look! The necklaces were very cheap, buy one get one free at £4, and they avoid the usual tackiness of H&M jewellery (I've been buying a lot of jewellery from there lately, are they getting better, or am I being more open-minded?). I love these two tops from Primark, the cookie monster tee is from the men's section - XL for a pyjama top, and the other one has three great parts to it, it's red, peter pan collar and peplum! And it was only £3, amazing! I'm going to customise the New Look rose headband, taking off the green leaves so it's more simple and elegant. And lastly, thanks to my best friend Merlin, I now have these amazing pieces of jewellery, she gave me the pendant and I'm borrowing her home-made ring-chain-bracelet!
