In my opinion, one of lifes great pleasures is having little things to look forward to; and in this instance it was a lovely Sunday spent in London, guzzling on waffles (or granola if you are as boring as me), picking up bunches of flowers (peonies to be exact) and finally getting around to watching films that everyone but you has seen (Amelie- and it was really good). Now, please understand I don't spend every Sunday doing things like this. The usual routine is spent in coco pop stained pjs, watching another cooking show on Channel 4 and occasionally leaving my bedroom (all of which, I hope you understand, I fail to document)- hence why recording days like this is special to me.
16 17 IMG_3170p 18 With a morning beginning at Duck and Waffle (incredibly long awaited- but certainly worth it)- we sampled the berry waffles (so good), pastries and Nutella (obligatory) and granola (fail safe)- which all delivered, as expected. If the maverick in me was feeling brave I probably would have actually gone for the duck, which, judging by my rubber-necking standards looked amazing- but I think I could have had anything and left happy- and although the lift to the 40th floor left Joe and I clammy handed and slightly shaky (nervous flyers and nervous of heights- cute right? no.) it was worth it- even if we did have to be moved to the middle (the views were amazing though).
19 IMG_3347p 20 IMG_3335p 21 Understandably, our trip followed suit with a flying visit to Columbia Road- with a pop in to Lily Vanilli (as far as I'm concerned it'd be rude not to) and a sweep of flower buying on the cards, it's one of the East ends finer ways of spending a Sunday- and although the supermarket usually caters to my weekly bunch of £3 flowers; it's certainly nice to treat yourself, right?

Anyway- the sunglasses! Paired with a fashionably white face and tanned legs (lols on me) this month the Take 10 ladies and I were challenged to style a pair of Ray Bans from Shadestation.co.uk and with sunglasses counting as my current 'accessory of choice' it was easy enough to throw them on (matching with my new £20 Zara bag bargain) and be off; and although they've now taken residence on Joe's face- I'm a pretty massive fan. Check out the other ladies awesome classic looks below...
