Hello! I think before you start reading this you should grab a coffee or something lovely.
If I was made of money I’d have tried the Starbucks Praline Mocha by now, but *sigh* I am not, and I can only dream. (The whole Christmas range just looks brilliant.)
There's quite a lot of stuff in the shops now reminding me of that event near the end of December... Christmas...
I'm not really someone that does make a huge list of things they want, but this year more than ever I've noticed some really kooky things in the shops.
Like this Swatch watch, I've wanted a Swatch for YEARS and this one I think is just beautiful. I MUST START THINKING ABOUT GIFTS FOR OTHER PEOPLE.
Talking of gifts and Christmas, I had some sadness this week with my favourite earring being involved in a nasty car icident where it rolled under the car and was run over. *cue joke about my cherry being popped*. My friend Roz gave me them a while back and they'd become a staple accessory for college.
My heart broke.
Rather than go to College quite a bit recently, I have found lots of really cute boutique shops where I like to browse all the jazzy gifts and imagine a house full of them, maybe in the future…
My favourite of the things I’ve seen has to be the range of Colour Me Good colouring books from the 80’s/90’s/Record sleeves/Aargghh.. They are perfect for all ages and um, me if anyone wants to send me one.
Bowie record from the Colour Me Good Record Sleeves collection (approx. £7.50 for the book)
Other interesting things of the week was discovering the NME Smiths special magazine which I spent all weekend browsing with my Vincent Van Gogh doll, dancing nonstop to Morrissey..
AND I AM SO CHUFFED INNOCENT SMOOTHIES ARE BRINGING BACK THE KNITTED HATS FOR WINTER AGAIN! Going into Boots and seeing all the drinks tucked up snug just makes my day, humanity really can make me smile sometimes. On another note, imagine having the job of “Mini hat knitter for drinks” how fab, I think I have a new aspiration..
Have you seen or bought anything jazzy this week?
