Another attempt to recreate the amazingness that is one of Winnie's food posts. She's definitely had a hand in getting me obsessed with all things dim sum related and I couldn't wait to pay another visit to Jade Garden to sample even more dishes and prove that I had perfect ordering skills. As human dustbins go, I pretty much eat anything in sight and have no qualms about most textures of food, making me the ideal person to try out new cuisines with. I hope any food bloggers reading this take the hint! The area of choice for this outing was Covent Garden, somewhere I'm always passing through but never have the time to properly visit. I spent a few hours there with Abi last weekend, admiring some items in the shops and resisting the urge to buy this green jumper.

The most annoying thing about the Spring/Summer season, is the confusion the weather brings. It rarely seems to reach the unquestionable New York highs, which made getting dressed easier. Here I question every decision, such as whether to wear tights or not (the answer is always yes until at least May) or if I will I look ridiculous wearing sunglasses when it isn't fashion week. I was almost tempted to wear my new shoes from Brandosa with bare legs on such a sunny day, but I chickened out at the last minute and resorted to my plum 120 deniers. The sandals are the perfect schoolgirl style, which I'm drawn to at the moment mainly for the twee factor and the fact that they're not black. I had resisted the allure of another blocked denim shirt for a while, but lo and behold, this style from Monki managed to convince me. It's the perfect slim fit style and is ripe for potential 'double denim' combinations that B*Witched never quite managed to master. I have rightly banned myself from any future denim shirt/jacket purchases, no matter how tempted I am because quite frankly, my wardrobe situation is getting ridiculous! I'm definitely going to try and donate some things that I haven't worn for a while and try and lay off the fast fashion for a bit.
I've been seeing these eggs everywhere in London and it took me a few days to work out what was going on, but it seems that there's a city-wide egg-hunt going on. I wish I'd made a bit more effort in trying to find them instead of stumbling upon them by accident as it seems there's some great designs from several of my favourite artists in the mix. Have you come across any yet? Random activities like this need to happen in London more often and I hope to get my little sister involved in finding some!
