This once again proves…wherever you go, the British have been there before you! At least that’s what I thought when I came across this uber-cool red telephone box. Obviously I’ve seen one before…in London, in Turkey, in a little town at the coast of the North Sea. It almost seems as though it’s the ‘moon’ flag of the British which they put everywhere they’ve been. Pssst, I want one for my room please!
I would lie if I said I needed a new bag, with over 20 lovely eye candy bags patiently waiting in my room to be used. But when I saw this great vintage style bag I simply couldn’t resist (wait, I have said that before about other bags…). Not only does it have a great ‘vintage red’ colour, but my initials in gold letters on it as well! It arrived at my house Tuesday morning, thanks to FedEx, and I’ve used it every day since then. I already got a lot of compliments on it and a friend of me even wanted to buy it from me. Well, she’ll have to order her own bag, because this cute bag is mine! I’ll make sure to take it with me when I go to its ‘birthplace’ Cambridge this summer. Cambridge satchels have been featured on many great blogs, like Fashionista, The Cherry Blossom Girl and, most recently, Style on The Couch.

…on a cold winter day.
What books do you like to read on a cold winter day, when you’re in your cuddly and cosy and warm bed? As a child I liked to escape into the world of Harry Potter, St Clare’s and Ink Heart, which helped me understand the importance of the word and books and send me to a world I’d be a part of for hours. Now that I’m older and more mature (at least that’s what I like to believe), I love reading Sophie Kinsella and Lindsey Kelk, and am writing my first book. The books I’m interested in may have changed, but I still need to escape into a different world from time to time by reading.
A large cup of tea may also help to keep you warm. A proper cup of tea always helps.
