Uninvited Guest

Hello all!!

I like squirrels as the next person, but not on my balcony and not the very curious ones that want to come into my house.
This little madam was particularly nosey and curious. Every time i tried to shoo her away, she would come closer!!

And finally she was on her way to someone else's terrace. Let's face it, they might be cute, but at the end of the day they are rodents with fluffy and pretty tails. I am not fooled :-)

Have a lovely week!!

King's Road is Pretty

Hello all!!

King's Road in London's swanky Sloane Square has become one of the places I seem to frequent more than any other in London lately. 
Since I started taking my yoga classes just of King's Road I have come acrross lots of lovely places I never for some reason go to that often. And I love rediscovering places in London.They sort of become new in a strange way.

Although I didn't practice yoga yesterday, I still went for a bit of shopping in King's Road. The street was buzzing and I swear you'd never think there is a recession in this country. People were buying in literally every shop in the street, as if they were giving stuff away for free.
So, in the spirit of spending money, I also treated myself to two lovely things. These fluffy and warm slippers, (from Habitat of all places). See what you think:

And then, an entirely spontaneous and accidental buy. A vintage, designer bag, for just £16!!!! And it is new. I spotted it in an Oxfam shop and as this is a very rich borough of London, the stuff in charity shops there is mostly designer and of very good quality. So, here is my new favourite bag by Edina Ronay:

And from the side:

I also spent time looking at this pretty little exhibition:

As I said the street was buzzing with people and Xmas lights are already on too. The whole street looks very pretty and sort of celebratory:

After "working" so hard, I was ready to spend the evening with a glass of wine and my current read Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel (strongly recommended. Her first Booker Man Prize winner from 2009 about the Tudor times, Henry VIII and Thomas Cromwell amongst others). 
Saturday night at home? I hear you say. Well often, those kind of evenings are the best. And indeed it was a lovely evening. I was ready to work hard this Sunday morning at my yoga class. And it was fantastic! Re-energised and ready for the week ahead.

Hope you had a lovely weekend and are ready for the coming week.
