 On tuesday Aimee and I headed to Winter Wonderland which is da place 2 b in London during the Christmas holidays. We went around the christmas market taking photos of everything (like typical Asian tourists-way to reinforce a stereotype), ate churros, listened to the weird mixes of Christmas songs, and took in the wonderful aromas of cinnamon, mulled wine and bbq. wait what. (they had sausages.)
We bavardé over gingerbread lattes in Starbucks for lunch then took the train and walked up 197 steps to Convent Garden (note to self: you need to get fit.) then walked to Charing Cross Road to check out the awesome book stores there. We spent ages browsing through shelves of unorganised piles of vintage books finding little gems of French books and old editions of classics. I think I've actually spent more time in those shops than actual shops recently, which is a bit sad, but it's quite addictive.

I got this leather rucksack quite a while ago and I've been using it endlessly these past few weeks, and its falling apart but I keep using it because I love it. My mum has told me to throw it away, but I'm too reluctant to throw things away, especially vintage things, and I think that's the reason for the load of crap I've accumulated over the years...

Have an awesome week lovecats
Lovee
