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.

I have a new favourite thing. My mum came to visit last week and we went shopping in Camden. It’s odd, but I hadn’t really bothered to wander around until my mum came, despite living here for the last 3 months. I suppose it was because I spent half of my teenage years in Camden, so I knew what to expect. It was fun watching my mum’s facial expressions¬†if we walked past any mega goths, though. We found this cuter than cute T Rex necklace at a stall by the canal and it has been around my neck for most of the weekend. Small pleasures.



Chocolate cupcakes with white chocolate chips

My friend Tara came round again yesterday for more baking (+ air punching to Magic FM + watching Hercules on DVD). I like how these cupcakes turned out. Just your standard cupcake recipe with plenty of cocoa powder and some white chocolate chips thrown in.

I need to stop buying cupcake cases.

Note the Harry Potter lightning bolt, noughts and crosses and x_x cupcakes.

My x_x face brings all the boys to the yarrrd, and they’re like, baking is harrrd.

Also, a few shots from a confectionery shop in China Town! Seeing as we’re on the subject of sweet things.

My eyes widen whenever I walk into any of the Asian food shops in London. They’re always so cute and enticing. I’m easily tempted by cute packaging. Just the other day I was in a Japanese food shop on Brewer Street and came out with koala-shaped biscuits in a colourful, patterned box. Needless to say, I hadn’t even thought about them again until now. I don’t know if I even have the heart to eat biscuits shaped like koalas. If you want to sell something, put it in a cute box.
