The Week


Letter For the King//Scarf from local hijab shop/Clinique Chubby Stick//Tea-just because!

READING:

Letter For The King - Tonke Dragt : I've been wanting to read this for a while but because I have a mammoth To Read list it got pushed back in favour of things I had to read like HOLES but when Mina picked it for the Hot Key Book Club book,  let's just say I was just a teeny weeny bit overexcited! Needless to say, it hasn't disappointed...so far!

WEARING:

Scarf - Autumnal weather and all - it's getting colder, cold enough for me to whip out this lovely, lovely scarf that's perfect for 'transitional' weather - I've taken to carrying this in my bag (yes, just like an elderly lady, I'm prepared for all sorts!).

Clinique Chubby Stick - Super Strawberry: This little beauty came with a magazine (which I bought just for the lip pencil) a few months ago and has joined the ranks of Favourite Barely There Lip Colours - an actual category (where all the colours are almost all the same - to an untrained eye that is!).






PLUS:
We took a trip to the V&A museum on Friday and it was brilliant!  I think my favourite exhibition was the Disobedient Objects one - which is all about the creative way people express themselves in protests - in terms of the things they use. Then we decided to trek to Westminster Pier and walked by the River Thames - it was lovely and pretty with all the lights - methinks the best time is at night, it all looks truly beautiful then!

Until next time!

Launch Party

The Rise and Rise of Tabitha Baird  launch 


So last night I went to my first ever book launch (exciting times) - it was at the beautiful Daunt Books in Marylebone - I hadn't actually been there before and my word it is gorgeous! It looks like the loveliest library with an awesome section for secondhand books.

The launch was for Arabella Weir's new book - The Rise and Rise of Tabitha Baird - (published by Piccadilly Press and one of the first books I worked on!) and was so nice. Arabella did a touching speech - complete with a little story embarrassing her poor son - who was there . . . fun for the rest of us eh!




Until next time!
