Couple of weeks ago, Aimee and I headed to Brick Lane and a vintage fair in Spitafields Market, then I gave her a little tour around where I live, and by tour, I mean we went on the high street and checked out some charity shops there... The vintage fair was not as big as the ones in Bethnal Green, but was still awesome, and I bought the box/bag I'm holding in the photos. I spent quite a while deciding on whether to buy it, as I'm saving up for a dslr camera, but Aimee suggested I could use it as a camera bag/box, so I figured that was enough to justify the purchase and I bought it (thanks Aimee! :D ) It was £10 and I got it for £6 saving me a super £4 towards my camera fund. Win. And Aimee also bought a camera bag for £10, and it is sooo lovely, it is red inside and had animal hair inside, but we brushed it off and now Aimee looks totally awesome with her awesome camera bag. My box/bag was kind of awkward to carry around though, it didnt have a strap, so most of the day I was carrying it under my arm withouth knowing, which looked a little awkward...After we headed to a few charity shops around my area, Aimee bought another bag and I nearly bought a suitcase but bought a mini cooper instead, which was probably one of my most random purchases. Then we did some baking, and if you follow our twittererers, you would probably know how it turned out...if not, just guess. Clue: we totally burnt it.

I've cleared out my room recently too, ready for when I move into my new room which is so much bigger than my current room, which I'm quite excited about. Can't wait to be rid of this faded yellow carpet. Yes, yellow. I really want a clean white minimalistic room, but given the fact that I have so much crap in my room, that won't happen, so I guess I would just have to take the 'car-boot-sale-like-random-junk-everywhere' theme into the new room. *sighs*

Oh, and for some summer music, check out Little Comets, they have been around for a few years and they're pretty awesome.

Peace owt


p.s. I won't be posting many outfit posts for a while, I broke my camera and may have to go back to using a really old one...on a more positive note, it would mean I might be buying my new one soon!
