And if you ever said you missed me then don’t say you never lied…

I spent this last weekend in London visiting my best friend (Hi Kay!!) and going to see my favourite band Brand New at Wembley. The gig was amazing and London was fun, though a little confusing and busy!!

On Sunday we went to Camden market- I’ve wanted to go for years and I finally got the chance this weekend!! It was very, very big and nothing like I expected. Very busy with so much going on!! I’d love to go again when I have more money and more time and when I was more awake!!

One of my new years resolutions this year was to start Vintage shopping and from my experiences this weekend I know I’m going to find it very hard. The truth is, I like things to be ordered, I like organization. I like all my rails nice and in order, with everything neatly arranged by colour and style. I don’t like rooting, I don’t like hunting. After a few hours looking round Camden I was gagging for a nicely organized shop (which I found and ended up desperately buying a gorgeous lace top for £10!!) and a coffee. But I’m determined to crack it. I’m determined to be one of those people who can effortlessly say “oh it’s vintage, I got it for £4.”

I’ve been desperately googling charity shops in Birmingham and advice on how to shop in charity shops, and I plan to have one day where I head into town and force myself to root for something beautiful.

I bought my first vintage purchase today though- a gorgeous pair of black mid-heeled lace up boots from ebay. As much as I hate charity shopping I love a good hunt on ebay, and I am frequently rewarded for my efforts.

Today has been a bit of a non-day. But I’ve done lots of looking online for lovely things which I’ll put up on my next post. Oh and I’ve listened to a lot of brand new!!
