Hello all!

The great thing about London is that random and interesting things pop up all over the city very, very often. Few weeks ago I was out in the South Bank and this is what I found.

So, let's go hunting:

Let's see what is around the corner:

So, that was my egg hunt. Which one is your favourite?
Are you planning on an egg hunt around your garden this Easter?
Whatever you do, have fabulous fun.

Save the Best for Last

Dear all!!

So, this is the last post celebrating Boye By Red's 1st birthday. Hope you've enjoyed the celebrations as much as I did putting it all together.

I saved the best for last, at least, in my opinion. This post doesn't have a theme or a narrative; it's all about pictures that I like, little details I have noticed walking around London. 
So, let's see what I chose:

And my favourite, of all the pictures I have take in the last 12 months is:

Is there a picture that I have posted that you like more than any other?

Hope you all have a happy and lovely Sunday.
See you all soon and thank you for visiting.

Let's See Who We Met Last Year

Dear all!!

One of my favourite past times is people watching. Too often I have my head in the book (if I am travelling around London) and forget to look up, look into people's faces and read their body language. Well, in the last year since I've started blogging, I have done exactly that and I had my camera ready to capture these wonderful characters on the streets of London. So, let's see who we met in the last 12 months:

We witnessed some serious food shopping in the Village:

And pretended we were not star struck when we saw the amazing Florence in our local restaurant (she is in the right hand corner at the bottom):

We saw some other famous people around:

And marvelled at David Bowie transforming from Ziggy Stardust to a bank note:

 We had a bottle of fresh water with our favourite redhead:

Paid our respects to the great artist from the last century:

And wished we could discuss today's state of the affairs with the great Malcolm X:

We were privy to a business deal where money and ginger beer were exchanged. Cool businessman and a happy customer:

We made friends with Cat and Dog:

And celebrated a birthday with two happy girls:

We also got freaked out by this little darling:

But then had a coffee with this gentle soul to calm down:

After we've pinched a few noses:

Flirted with a few boys:

And looked cooler than James Dean:

 We decided to take a break, sit down and watch the world go by:

Hope you enjoyed being reacquainted with old friends. Tomorrow is the last post of going down the memory lane and it will be my favourite. I have saved the best for last.

See you all here tomorrow.

Going Down The Memory Lane Once Again!

Dear all!!

Here we go again. I thought I'll be able to fit everything in 3 posts, but apparently not. We have done too much stuff in the last year, so the celebration continues throughout the week.

We didn't always stay in Brixton. We sometimes ventured outside South London and visited other interesting places in the great capital:

We went to Camden Town:

And West End:

We did the annual traditional thing and stood in a long cue to get cheese for Xmas:

But then, we found safe haven in the bustle of the busy city and had a break:

On our walk around East London, we said hello to the newly weds (although Prince William looks suspiciously like Prince Charles):

And had a break watching the old Auntie:

Don't forget, we also spotted Bonnie and Clyde doing a runner:

And on that note, I am out of here. See you all tomorrow.

So Much More To Share on Day 3!!!

Hello all!!

Welcome back! Let's see what's in store today. 

Well, you came to the movies with me. We saw two of my favourite movies of last year. 

We have also read together:

Got inspired by visual art in Brixton:

 The South Bank:

And in Shoreditch when we went to a Refugee Convention in December:

But we were not always so serious. We played dress up and I showed off my pretty new things. I don't go out and find pretty locations for my "shoots", I literally play dress up in front of my mirror. Vintage dress that I still haven't had a chance to wear:

A dress that looks like it is vintage, but definitely isn't:

My Diesel skinnies with three new tops:

Favourite jewellery designer, Tatty Devine:

And vintage silk dress I hid in the dressing room with, so the girl who was frantically looking for it in the shop wouldn't snatch it from me:

I also made sure that you can always smell the flowers on my messy coffee table. As some of you might know, carnations are my favourite flower:

Well, that's all for today, dear bloggers. Come back tomorrow for more going down the memory lane extravaganza.
