Right here, right now
We are taking advantage of the blue sky and sunshine, sitting in the garden for the first time this year.
The perfect Sunday!!

This week saw the arrival of my mother and her friend S.
A and I had a lovely time at Costa in Westfields.
I bought a new lipstick by Chanel called La Diva
Received the latest issue of Harpers Bazaar in the post with the fabulous SJP on the cover
On Tuesday Shirina nd I went to the O2 and saw Beyonce in concert. She was great and I really enjoyed it but I felt that it was missing something.
On Wednesday we all squeezed into my little car, A, Shirin, my mum, S and I, and drove to Alexandra Palace. We stayed there for a few hours, having lunch, coffee, playing in the sandbox and feeding the birds.
Thursday was all about London and enjoying every part of it, including afternoon tea at MAndeville Hotel in Marylebone
I renewed my Grazia subscription and got a couple of nailvarnishes and top/base coat as a thank you

A and I went to Westfields this morning to buy dinner and to get A a few new dresses.
I've been looking at this lipstick for a few weeks now and finally got the chance to go to a Chanel counter and really look at it. I think I'm in love :-P
Its a creamy lipstick with matte finish and it doesn't dry out the lips. Perfection!
I took these lovely springtime pictures in Woodford last Wednesday when the weather was gorgeous and it really felt like spring. It was warm in the sun and cold in shade...
Its finally moving in the right direction, weather wise. Not that it's been particularly cold here this winter, but it has been wet and the sun has now been showing it's shiny face a bit more :-)
Here are the rest of the pictures I took whilst in Covent Garden on Friday last week...
We went for a walk in the sun and on the piazza we discovered The British Heart Foundations cute display of love for your heart. S and I decided to pay the £3 for a silver heart and cement our love for all eternity :-D
Would have been a bit more romantic had I done it with Husband, but I gues it will have to wait until we return to Paris one day...
It was a lovely day away from housewife duties at home. The fact that the weather-gods were shining on us as well was just the whipped cream on top of our cake!
Whilst we were in Covent Garden last week, we also paid a visit to a fairly newly opened sweet shop on Long Acre called Sugarsin.
Such a cool place, seeling Swedish pick and mix sweets, amongst other cool items like hampers and large glass jars old skool style to fill with the sugary stuff...
Another place to visit again soon
A Swedish day
I discovered this Swedish bakery reading about it on a blog and dragged Shirin with me to have a semla in Covent Garden last Friday.
When we walked we were greeted with a Hej hej, just like back home. All the customers and staff were Swedish and it made me feel like I was back in Sweden, any city or town, having a fika with my biatch :-P Can't wait to go again!
Brick Lane, again...
I took the tube with G on Thursday for a photo day at Brick Lane. We walked thorugh Spitalfield market to Brick Lane and Cheshire Street and one of my favourite walls. I also noticed that the cherry blossom trees had blossomed and I had to document it as it is my very favourite time of the year and they are soooo pretty
We were so lucky with the weather. It rained a tiny bit when we left my house, but by the time we came out of Liverpool Street station the clouds were breaking out, letting the sun shine. A gorgeous day!
Photo day with Chaotic House
Thursday last week I had a photo day with Gemma from Photography by Chaotic House
and this is the result (be warned, there are a lot of photos in this post):
We took a few pictures by a wall next to my house and then I changed at home and then we were off to Brick Lane, East London where I changed into a third outfit. I originally had five outifts but the idea of carrying the clothes around on the tube and then changing on the street didn't really appeal. Luckily we didn't have enough time for five outfits anyway as the sun was setting, the good light disappearing and I had to pick A up from nursery. I brought my camera (these outfit pictures are taken with my camera) and took a few streetart photos which I'll add to another post :-D
This was just a great experiment. Gemma is a photographer looking for her thing and we just added a category to her portfolio. She was one of the photographers at our anniversary-party last year, have look here
