My best friend Marion came to see me and we hit Covent Garden with nowhere near as much money as we would've liked but........
I think Tottenham Court Road has one of the biggest and best paperchases ever. I think I could own everything in that shop and not be disappointed by any of it.
The owl print seems to be their thing this season and I love it - I would have it as wallpaper!
Then you get Octopus in Covent Garden - they have 3 stores in a small area and no photo can do it justice. The cheese graters have dolls heads on, the dustpan and brush is a big dressed lady, holographic bags, the cutest radios......it's just cool and you have to see it to believe it. If I ever get married my wedding list is so getting done at this shop.
And then we found Ella's Bakehouse. THE most amazing cupcakes with edible glitter on. Which means as I eat my insides start to sparkle so it must be good for me.
I hate that Marion isn't living right next door - she is one person that I have no airs and graces with - I can be totally myself - whichever 'self' that is on that day and it's ok. I can talk to her about anything and everything and basically much to her poor ears disgust, I do! Everyone should have a friend like her. (marion, you can pay me later!)
Sunday I spent the day trying to find out about a course in Native American Studies - but alas there appears to be nothing available in the UK. This saddens me but led me to a very interesting group set up in Scotland that might enable me to learn what I need to but not be able to offer me a qualification and I am more than ok with that.
