sunglasses | ralph lauren

this has been my a bit of a winter uniform for me, i have developed a new found love for berry/plum shades of late. my bag (a sneaky sale purchase) has basically been surgically attached to me since i bought it. my snazzy sunnies were my christmas gift from jay, they are my first pair of 'proper' sunglasses. 
as this is my last post of the year i wanted to say a little thank you for your lovely comments and putting up with my infrequent posting! 
i hope you all have a wonderful new years and i'll see you on the other side!

i just wanted to share a few snippets of christmas, i've been pretty poorly over the last week so it was a very relaxing and quiet christmas with lots of sleep and not much chocolate (i plan to make up for this very soon)
i somehow managed to co-ordinated my whole outfit on christmas day right down to my socks?
i hope everyone had a lovely christmas!

last weekend the lovely lot at citizen m invited me for a day of festive fun. 
we started with brunch at borough market, once we had eaten we wandered round the market annoying stall holders by taking lots of pictures of their food (we looked like a proper gang of bloggers)
after walking off our brunch we jumped in a taxi and headed citizen m bankside for a cupcake decorating class with the cookie girl, turns out cupcake decorating is not my calling however but eating lots of cake is my calling. 
we finished the day with cocktails and chatting about blogging, it was so great to hang out with anoushka, helen, claire and helen such lovely blogging babes.

minty fresh.

jacket | rare london*
jumper | boden*
bag | vintage
jeans | primark
loafers | office

a rare appearance of my bespectacled state (which i should really be all the time but i'm a rebel so ya know...) 
this is a classic uniform outfit for me, i pretty much have jeans glued to my legs most days and my collection may be getting out of hand...
these shoes are jays fault, he just had to pop into office and i spotted these babies which is have been eyeing up for months. well they were on sale so it would be rude not to and now i am also the proud own of a super bright pink pair of trainers (which i secretly love) but both are pretty so i'm not feeling that guilty.

a rainy saturday in borough market.

what do you do on a rainy saturday, obviously head to the most crowed place you can think of.
however when this place is full of food it makes it feel like slightly less of a bad idea...
this place is of course borough market, i may have been inspired to go after watching bridget jones the night before.
after nabbing myself a watermelon juice, burger and a chocolate and coconut donut (it took me half an hour of wandering around until i decided on this combo) we took advantage of the rain easing up and strolled down southbank. 
i did try to take outfit pictures however it turns out i look super shifty when there are people constantly looking at me, so i have one picture to show from that (still looking pretty shifty) cracking out the old favourites on the jacket/bag/boots combo but with my new dress (which is least season but new in possession to me)
its still a novelty for me to have saturdays off work so i'm trying to do something different each weekend to make the most of living in the city!

ever since i have lived in london i have always wanted to visit richmond park, i finally managed to go on sunday and realised i only live half and hour away!
my main reason was to go see the deer, ever since i saw kitty and nathan's deer charming pictures i have wanted to try and get as close as i can to them (turns out not that close) 
we had a little picnic and walked as far as our legs would let us, then realising that we had to walk a mile to the station once we had left the park! 
its such a beautiful area, especially in the autumn light.

on monday i went to an event on my todd, this is not something i do often due to being a panicky penny, however when citizen m hotel invited me to listen to james warner who is the art director at GQ and hope lawrie who is a celebrity stylist, well i couldn't not go could i!
after being super early i met the other blogging babes that were attending the talk, katy, amy, anoushka and jodie who were all super lovely and listened to my nervous rambling!

we where greeted with wine, cheese, olives and other italian delights whilst having a chat about blogging (of course) obviously we had to arrange the food to make it instagram friendly before we ate it (i missed this by getting lost finding the loo in true liv style, but amy and jodies pictures are making me hungry again)
we listened to james and hope talk and asked lots of questions (especially when hope said she had styled mary berry) and compared the world of magazines to blogging, it is remarkably similar at times!

it was such a great way to start the week, although i was a little bleary eyed the next morning after two glasses of wine and a mojito on a school night (plus its rare i'm not in my pj's after nine)
thank you citizen m for such a lovely evening and getting the chance to meet such interesting and creative people!
