Things I did this weekend...

.drank lots of very tolerable cava at the Jimmy Choo for H&M launch party on Friday night. and bought the shoes above. sleek, comfy & perfect to bring my vintage dresses up to date for the upcoming party season. {funded by selling one or two things on e-bay}

.ate burgers & drank beer in the American diner near Carnaby Street with Husband, my sister & her best friend. followed by vodka cocktails back at our flat.

.went out for breakfast. i love going out for breakfast but we don't do it very often. we walked there in the peeing rain and ate in a lovely Turkish cafe round the corner from our house.

.went to a dinner party. which was lots of fun.

.worked in the vintage shop & made new blogging friends talking to customers.

.made bread sauce to go with the pheasant Husband roasted for supper last night. which was yummy.

Oooh I quite a few things from Jimmy Choo/H&M too! Yep, I was able to find my own purchases from stuff I didn't keep (umm, there's a lot of stuff).

The launch definitely sounded exciting. Did you keep anything else?

Ooh! Not just shopping Choo for H&M, but going to the launch party too! Very classy, my dear :)

And those shoes are sure to steal the show no matter where you go!

Thanks for stopping by my blog & for offering London help. I so need need it. Mostly looking for shopping, eating & drinking info. I've done the touristy things on my last trip there. :)

Oh and how fabulous are those shoes?!?! And I must say, that's pretty amazing that you got to go to the launch party!
