Heyyyyy, finally an outfit post yay.

Today, Melissa and I went to London for a Christmassy outing. We went to the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park first of all, visiting the huge Christmas market, smelling the quintessential smell of Christmas (cinnamon, nutmeg etc.) and eating some churros. Nom nom. However, we didn't spend that long there and we still had a whole day to do something, so after taking some photos in Hyde Park, we went to Covent Garden for some lunch at Starbucks and a wander around the market and some shops. I got some overpriced American candy from Cybercandy (but it's JUST SO GOOD) and then our final stop of the day were the book shops along Charing Cross Road. We spent ages in them, browsing the huge selection of a massive mish mash of books. There were loads of old editions of classics, some newer used books and finally in the basement were the foreign books and the bargain shelves (£1 for a book or £4 for 5, so good.). After looking at all the shelves for a good forty minutes, I finally decided to buy the original French edition of 'Le Petit Prince' and a guide to Paris written in 1955. I was so glad that Melissa took me to these shops, they have such a wide selection of different books for really reasonable prices and I could easily spend a whole afternoon in there.

Onto the outfit, I got this jumper on sale for £15 from H&M on Monday which is so good seeing as I was actually going to buy it full price, but decided not to as I wasn't completely sure if I actually liked it or not. But when I got home and started to style it with other things I started to wonder what was my life like before without this amazing piece in my wardrobe?! It's so warm and cosy and I'm in love with the colour. Another new purchase is this slouchy beanie I got from ASOS. I'm not really a winter hat person but seeing this hat on the model on the website convinced me that I SHOULD be a winter hat person. Not only is this hat very practical for the chilly weather, it's also beautiful with the shimmery speckles on plain navy and I love the slouchy-ness of it.

Also, I finally developed my photos from The Drums so hopefully I'll scan them on Thursday and I can show you guys how amazing they were. There were some crappy photos, but I got some good ones of Johnny, but I just wish I had better ones of Connor (ahhhh, Connor.) and Jacob, but Connor was right on the other side of the stage and Jacob was at the back doing his synth thangggg. But more on that later...

I'm going to go back to stuffing my face with chocolate now, I have so much, but hey, it's Christmas so it's totally justified.
