A Day Off

Yesterday I had the day off, this is how I spent it:

Lunch at Comptoir Libanais. I met up with my London bff Reda after making her take the day off too so I had someone to spend my day with!

 Reda wears: Dress from Pakistan, Boots from Dune, Waistcoat from Unconditional on Monmouth Street
 I Wear: Dress - TKMaxx, Cardi - Topshop, Tights - from Italy, Shoes - Carvela, Bag - Marc by Marc Jacobs, Necklaces - Vintage
Posing in Carnaby Street. I discovered why I mainly take photos of myself rather than persuade someone to photograph me, I'm so fussy! Every time it was always 'can you take another photo, just one more, pleeeease?!' I felt really bad!

Pancakes and Milkshakes at The Diner. This was recommended as the place with the best American Pancakes in London, and I could see why! Ok, so it wasn't the best dinner ever, but it was my day off! I'm allowed!

Mask Making at London Twestival! Twestival was so fun, I ate tacos and cupcakes, and drank smoothies, and played giant jenga and met loads of great people. Sadly I missed most of the bands, as we kept wandering into different rooms and coming back to find out they'd just finished a set! Also the mask is Reda's, mine was awful! It was so heavy with glue and gems it broke!

I finally hit my flickr limit for the month this morning, so these are on photobucket, which is soooo slow! Maybe I need to invest in a premium account, or take less pictures?!

You guys look gorgeous, I love Reda's dress. And now you've given me pancake envy too!

Yeyyy sounds great! Love how we both had super fun days off (I've done the same again today, but this is making up for no days off during the LPC).

Sounds like a great day off. I love how the glasses look on you: very cool! And I love Reda's dress: it's amazing.

Oooh the soup looks really nice! What was in it? & gosh, the milkshakes; mmmmmmmmm! I know what you mean about always wanting to take your own photos - I always feel bad getting Phil to do mine!

Looks like the perfect day off! I love both your outfits (Reda is so cute!) And why did I miss the fact that you wear glasses?!
