The Berlin Wall

I went to Berlin with my boyfriend for our 2 year anniversary last week for 5 days and I practically fell in love all over again…with the city!

Now I promise that I will upload more content about my trip there as we did so much and there was so much to see but for now I just wanted to share this time lapse that I took while walking along east side gallery which is the site of the largest stretch of remains left of the Berlin Wall.

Walking beside the wall really got me thinking about the way people back in the day would have felt about this huge barrier and how for some perhaps walking where I was would have felt complete normal to them. It sure was an incredibly strange feeling and I recommend this particular journey for anyone who has the time in Berlin as it really was thought provoking and the art was both controversial and breath taking l.

Who would have thought that after a long time of lusting after a single pair of DM’s that I would soon be working for them.

1 pair of Greenland 1461’s lead to another and another and another until I reached my current total of 6 pairs…oops. Not that I’m complaining honestly they’re the best shoes (only shoes) I own nowadays. I am in a committed relationship with Docs… any other brand would feel like cheating when I have such a wide variety to pick from!

Versatility is key when it comes to my choice – wearing jeans all the time is great but sometimes I fancy a dress and I need shoes and boots that will suit all fashion and that’s why these boots/shoes are perfect for me. I feel like docs are the kind of shoe that allow you to dress them up or down and I’ll be damned if I don’t try and style them for a dress at my brothers wedding.

Without a doubt this isn’t the end to my collection, simply the beginning of packing out my wardrobe with boots.

Imaged: Pascal Silver Alumix, Dante Black, 1460 Black Maracaibo, Made In England Pascal Black (and 1460 Black Patent), 1460 Green, 1462 Greenland.

Costa and how I’m a walking billboard

 
  
I’ve been told before that people literally see the red brown of Costa and automatically think of me. People literally associate me with the trademark colour because I’m just that damn obsessed. My hair is even the same colour sometimes (I associate the colour with good vibes myself). It’s even a vital part of my outfits as you can see above dear reader

I’d say that I pretty much uphold Costa as a business due to how much I provide them to the extent that they don’t need advertising…they just need me. There’s even one outside my uni and I’ll be damned if I don’t get my vanilla latte every Friday to get me through the day. Honestly I’m obsessed and it’s not even a problem to encompass that particular white girl stereotype! Even my perfect date includes coffee at some point, it’s Costa or nothing friends. Provide a coffee? Instant friend. It doesn’t take a lot truly.

As far as addictions go I’d say Costa coffee is a pretty good one to have…what do you think?

Tourist Time

I’ve lived on the edge of London for my entire life so often I take the touristy places for granted. Ask any life long resident from London about the best tourist destinations and I assure you they probably haven’t been there because you never have to be a tourist in your own city. A friend […]

London Cat Village 

Not long ago now me and two of my housemates took a lil’ trip down to Shoreditch to visit the London Cat Village one of London’s cat cafes.

Let me tell you this was possibly the cutest experience of my life. You’re welcomed by an array of rare breeds and a  pair of slippers to wear around the place with some zen as it gets music while you nibble on cakes and have some tea (or rather try and keep it away from the cats). Despite the place being filled with kitties it’s extremely clean and the food tastes great to boot.

As you can see I became mother cat to the resident American Curl there who happily rolled over in my arms and swooned over how damn cute and fluffy the thing was and my housemate (ironically named Cat)  had another cute critter climb into her lap and hide in her scarf. ADORABLE.

As a frequent pet owner and lover of animals this was perfect for me who was feeling pretty pet deprived as I can’t actually own animals on the house I stay in. Seems that I’ll need regular visits to keep myself soothed.

100/10 would visit again and potentially become a permanent resident crazy cat lady
