Due to Christmas looming close, my mum and I felt it an appropriate excuse to take another London trip. We began at Whole Foods as it never gets old. Although Whole Foods has such a predictable crowd (think New Balance trainers, iPhones, etc) although it is essentially just a supermarket that sells prettily packaged products and labels screaming ' organic ', it still boasts a great atmosphere and endless photo opportunities.

By the time we reached Highgate the light was fading and twinkly Christmas lights strung in the bare trees on the green in Highgate were the only source of light. We stopped for red velvet cake and tea at this point before heading back to the train to rest our battered feet.
In other news, despite breaking up from school and simply wanting to relax and lounge about all day binge watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer on Netflix, I have been surprisingly productive. We battled the throng of Christmas shoppers in Sainsburys and wrapped presents and I also managed to meet up with friends yesterday. Myself, Anne Claire and Alex grabbed breakfast at Bill's (blueberry pancakes with strawberries and maple syrup accompanied with peach ice tea) and then went and got our nails done in wintry shades at a local nail salon. We then headed back to Anne Claire's where we baked far too many cookies, attempted to decorate them and eventually ended up on Tumblr, beaten by the wretched biscuits. Today I wrapped even more presents and I sense tomorrow will become a pyjamas all day on sofa whilst watching every Christmas movie in existence day. I wish you all a merry Christmas, I hope you all have a absolutely brilliant day and get some great presents. I hope to blog before the new year but if not happy new year too. I'm hoping to head to London in the new year and will definitely blog about it. I'm aiming to buy more vintage next year and want to blog more about music and clothes and get my act together. Speak to you soon!
