A day in itself

March 7, 2012

Yesterday was pretty much the best day that I’ve had in quite a long time. It began awfully, with a tumble on my walk to work, followed by me spilling an entire jar of coffee on the floor, and not being able to find a plaster to stop my hand from bleeding… Thank goodness I was only working  a half day! I finished shortly before 1pm, raced home and scoffed some lunch before hopping on the 1.30pm train to London Bridge. By 3pm I was happily skipping along the road to Whole Foods, aka Shop of Dreams. I love this place! Even though I’m on a super tight budget at the moment, I love just wandering down the aisles, looking at all of the different products. I love that you can get so many things from across the world – in particular Peanut Butter & Co and Clif Bars! I so wish they stocked Larabar and Lunabar. But they do have a cabinet of vegan truffles and marshmallows, so I can’t complain too much!

After I had stocked up on some Dark Chocolate Dreams and picked up a Saf wrap for later, I headed across to Carnaby Street to finally see the new Monki store! It was better than I had expected; two floors of super fun features, wonderful accessories and gorgeous clothes. It took serious restraint to only leave with a handful of rings and a new purse.

I absolutely love them! I was also dribbling over some metallic gun-metal leggings (£15) and a whole bunch of t shirts. I will return with more pennies!

After sighing with resolve that I should move on, I picked up one of my favourite notebooks from Muji before popping back to the tube and heading over to my favourite museum, Wellcome Collection for a little browse. The museum was between collections so I sat and took a moment to take in Sigune Hamann’s installation which observes the innocent wave: a combination of still images and short films look at the history and intriguing importance of such a simple gesture.

Before I knew it, it was time to get going and meet Mr T in Angel to see Youth Lagoon. The venue was absolutely amazing: a dis-used metal works, the space was raw and industrial. Brilliant. I went to bed exhausted but sometimes it is just brilliant how much you can fit into one day so simply, and which can put such a smile on your face.

    OH gosh, I have those days ALL the time. We are so similar, I’d happily walk around the aisles of a supermarket, which is probably why my mum is always the one to send me shopping :P

    Sounds like a lovely day after you got the morning over and done with! I love Muji as well, I seriously need to stock up on a lot of their stuff x
