i love the way you dress the trees (and the streets for that matter). in that fiercely fire-blazing kind of way.
and those crispy leaves. that “crunch” makes me giddy.
the way you end the days with darker, cooler nights, that allow me to go home, wrap up and drink something warm.
i get to wear boots. brown ones, high ones, black ones and wedged ones. and my feet are oh so thankful.
in some ways you make me forget that the harshness of winter is what’s next. deceitful? maybe. but your warmth lasts longer than i think it should. so i forgive summer for the lack of. well. sunshine.
pumpkins. cinnamon. hot chocolate. scarves and coats. bonfire night and fireworks. chocolates, golds and sunset yellows.
oh and i can also just about handle the cooler nights because christmas.
that’s how i feel since it’s been 13 days since my last post.
anyway, these lovelies make me want to have braids again #hairenvy
these ladies remind me why i started my natural hair journey…
which i haven’t really talked about much on this blog of mine. but these are my inspirations. and i’m over a year free of hair chemicals. yay me.
and thank you pinterest.
this past weekend one of my very good friends visited from the states. well he’s actually brazilian but he lives in utah, where we met. it was his first time in the uk so of course, london was a must. on his first morning here i decided what better way to be introduced to british life than a big full english breakfast. after a bit of browsing i stumbled on a cute cafe (thanks tripadvisor). mimo’s cafe is a fabulous italian cafe bar just outside of paddington station. you can’t beat £4.50 for a good breakfast. especially in london. mimo’s gets a huge thumbs up from me!
oh did i tell you that this happened?
never in a million years did i think i would see my name on a coke bottle. i celebrated by not drinking it and posting a picture of it on instagram instead. besides, i’m not drinking anything fizzy anymore remember?
while i spent the majority of the weekend in london this past weekend my mum and niece had a fashion show without me. i loved the photos!
with my fedora and floppy hat they definitely wore it better.
talking of my niece….we caught her watching cartoons on her dad’s phone rather than napping….which is what she was supposed to be doing.
and this is my favourite quote on pinterest from this week…
i hope you’ve had a lovely start to october. here’s to autumn days, halloween, nights in, lots of hot chocolate, duvet covers on rainy/windy nights and 5th november. i do love autumn in the uk.
