Slim Jim’s, Valentine’s & Shopping


Last time I was in London was for the Kyary gig and afterwards I went to Slim Jim’s with Aisha, Kai, D, and Ken. Slim Jim’s is a Whisky Rock’n’roll bar with its main decorative feature being a ceiling full of bras. As you can imagine, we looked a bit out of place considering we had dressed up immensely OTT ‘Japanese Kawaii Fashion' for Kyary. The bouncer on the door at first wouldn’t let us in as he said they do not allow fancy dress! Oooo I felt the burn of that comment. ‘This is just how we dress’ was said and after an awkward pause we were let in XD

Thankfully they had some very yummy cocktails so it was worth going haha!

As the night wore on Kai and I found ourselves in the ladies toilets having immense fun with their giant full length mirror and a posca pen to add to the graffiti all over the walls. We were so engrossed in our new activity that we lost track of time. The guys thought we had gotten lost and sent Aisha to look for us hahaha!!

On the left: Kai decided to express what she believed to be my feelings for her. Pretty accurate imo ;)

Then this happened…

Valentine’s Day was the next day. I was so surprised that D got me gifts! Victoria’s Secret and chocolates – so perfect!

I wore my Hate Hearts Tshirt by Drop Dead on Valentine’s as it amuses me so to be ironic :’)

D and I had MASSIVE pancakes for food at The Old Dutch in Holborn. I had pear and cinnamon. I am always impressed with their pancakes and this one was no exception!

Later we met up with Kai and Aisha for an evening walk around Central London, vaguely heading towards Covent Garden.

Giant Wreck It Ralph ad in Leister Square :)

In Covent Garden we found a collection of pretty decorated giant eggs…P1020450

We then came across these giant red metal letters spelling out LOVE. Upon further inspection there were little metal hearts padlocked all over the letters. Each one had a little message written on by a couple or someone wishing for love. Such a lovely thing to see!

Also whilst I was in London it was Pancake Day! We went to a place called The Diner, which is retro American themed and had amazing thick scotch pancakes. Along with endless coffee refills and orange cream soda. Nommm.
My dish was called ‘The Lumberjack Breakfast’.2013-02-12-20-22-16_deco

This Forever 21 pastel dominated area makes me so happy :3P1020444

I fell in love with this Disney room spray description and scent. MARSHMALLOW CLOUDS <3

And a magazine that appeals to my taste faultlessly. I love every page.

Bedroom Decor Haul

I’m currently in the middle of  redesigning my bedroom in a vintage roses theme, and using three main colours: dusky pink, mint, and cream.

I’ve been buying some pieces over the last few months, and found quite a few bargains! Thought I’d share them with you guys in case you are looking for something similar :)

Three canvases that fit my vintage roses theme perfectly! £4 from Ponden Home.


Deer canvases, £6 from Asda.

Pretty cream leaf-detailing chandelier, £20 in the sale from Homebase. I’m really happy with this!

Cream Heart Jewelry Wall Hanger. For the price you’d think this would be small, but it’s surprisingly really big! £6 in the sale from Asda.

Medium Storage Boxes. I love the print on them! £4.99 from Store 21.

Mint x pink floral polkadot small fabric Boxes Set for my dressing table. From Ebay.

Metallic heart box, £2 in the sale from Store 21.

Mint vintage letter rack. Won on eBay for £6. (That I’m currently in the process of decoupage-ing, as you can see)

Vintage print File Organiser. From Store 21. £2.99.


Bunting! Fabric one on the left £7 from Asda, plastic one on the right 99p from Homebargains.

P1020730 P1020734
Pomegranate and Acai Tea Lights and Glass Holders. £2.75 for 50 from Asda.

Pink metallic rococo-style picture frame, 99p from The Works. They come in various sizes, and I bought the medium (£1.99) and large (2.99) frames too. Super pleased with these!

Put a postcard I bought at Manchester Art Gallery in it. It’s of the painting Ophelia by Arthur Hughes, based on Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Love this painting, it’s so ethereally melancholy.

Plus! some cute stationary. These blank notelet cards are so useful, and I think I may frame some of the rose ones as they match my bedroom theme :) They were ‘buy one get one free’ from The Works. One costs £2.99.
