Painted faces in the park

I spent most of the weekend nursing a sore head! It was totally worth it though, as my weekend included being let loose on my friends’ faces with face paints (as seen above). Nothing like having a whiskey in one hand and a paintbrush in the other.

Apologies for the hiatus; I just haven’t been taking photos. I kept finding myself in cool places without my camera, which kind of defeats the whole point of having a camera. In the meantime, enjoy our faces.



High Tea of Highgate

I’m spoiling you with Bethany recently. She and I went for tea in High Tea of Highgate and it was SO CUTE. We also befriended these two little boys who shared a pot of tea. I know, tea. At their age (11-12), I was getting mucky outdoors on my bike and generally being a little bit feral. Tea in a teashop did not feature in my view of the world.



A few more from Camden Passage

Most Islington residents (or wannabe Islington residents) will tell you they love Camden Passage. It’s cute, there’s a lot going on and there’s plenty to see, whether you want to eat, buy a necklace from a junk shop or ponder on some antique furniture.



Issy’s Milky Way

Look where Bethany and I went today! I’d heard a few whispers about Issy’s Milky Way so we decided to check it out. It’s adorable. There are cupcakes and other sweet things, milkshakes and coke floats, toasties and a lovely waiter with a very tall quiff. We each got a milkshake and Bethany got an Elvis cupcake and we marvelled at the various kitsch wares for sale around us.



In my own back yard

It has been a little while! I’ve had no compulsion to pick up my camera, having been so busy with work. These are of our modest little garden that has no grass, so only looks pretty covered in snow. I’m dreading the inevitably icy walk to work tomorrow but for now I’ll savour the crunch of new snow under my wellies.



Silly faces

Bethany came to stay! We rolled out of bed at silly o’clock and skipped off to one of my favourite local cafés for lunch. She got this amazing hat from River Island, and we had much fun with it. Just look how lovely she is! An afternoon well spent.



Two Karat Kitsch

For me, Camden is all about the tacky feast for the eyes. I haven’t actually bought anything there for a long time, but sometimes I go just to take it all in.
