A few days ago I had a bad experience in one my beloved areas of London. Having someone suddenly jumping on you from behind grabbing what they can may scare anyone to bits, but my initial reaction was anger(!), I got a hit in with my umbrella and ran after the creep who jumped into a nearby building. After getting away with nothing more than my phone, and hopefully problems with the police, I hope he thought it was worth it. Now in the aftermath I’m relieved it ended there, it’s insane how far some are willing to go, but lesson learned is that it could happen to anyone when you least expect it, so stay safe, tuck your phone away and grab your beloved handbag a little harder!
Ok, from now on I’ll be posting here as normal, my mum has left London and this holiday season has come to an end, time to roll up those sleeves, get back to business and try to stick to those new year resolutions. I always like to see the beginning of year as a blank page that you’ve got one year to fill, day 3 of January and mine is pretty empty but I’ll catch up I promise.
Images taken on a shopping spree with my mum on Saturday, didn’t buy much for myself but I’ve got to admit I’m pretty good at pushing my company to. I wore a shirt by Dior, angora knit H&M, skirt Whyred, coat Topshop Boutique, boots Giambattista Valli and bag Celine.
When I was a kid I wasn’t as thrilled to find soft presents under the Christmas tree as harder ones, don’t get me wrong, I always appreciated what I got but soft packages those days most likely contained something practical, home knitted jumpers and socks, perhaps not what makes a 8 year old jump to the roof. Well, the joy of receiving soft parcels has definitive changed for me and when I unwrapped this lovely cashmere jumper by Carven on my birthday a couple of weeks ago it was all happiness and childish joy.
Ended this day with a wonderful late dinner at a french restaurant Chez Gerard in Covent Garden where I used to be a regular, I might end up there again soon as they serve excellent snails and even though it’s quite a touristic place the atmosphere is cozy.
