Bright old things2

I have really enjoyed the Selfridges “Bright Old Things” campaign, which was a twist on their annual “Bright Young Things” exhibit. The window displays  (which I think I saw them taking down the other evening when I went past on the bus) were mesmerising, the stuff was all awesome and I loved the reminder that something doesn’t need to be designed by a young “up and comer” to be innovative, exciting, fresh and cool!

Also, this is now my life motto:

I also liked the casual and proud use of the word “old”, showing us that it’s not an insult or something to be feared and avoided.

(A reminder I actually really needed as – at the grand old age of 28 – my friends and I spend an inordinate amount of time panicking about our encroaching agedness/any visible signs of ageing. I think some grip-getting may be necessary!)

😀

Hope everyone is having a good week so far!

Selfridges

I’ve spent almost all of my 27 Christmases in London and I have to say, it never gets old. The decorations, the atmosphere, the lights, the bustle… it never ceases to put a spring in my step and a smile on my face!

I had my annual Christmas dinner with my friends from school recently. It was at my house this year and, as we had recently had a big turkey dinner for Thanksgiving (apparently we do that now), we decided to keep it casual and just all bring whatever food we fancied and have nibblies and drinks instead of dinner. This is how we ended up with 3 cheeseboards 😀

I wore:

Shoes tree

Zara nouveau grunge t-shirt, River Island sequinned jacket, M&S treggings, my new favourite necklace that my Dad gave me, and my new sparkly Converse trainers. I also wore my Revlon Black Cherry lipstick, which my friends all complimented me on, but said that I should be aloof and bitchy whilst wearing it, and giggling was strictly forbidden. (You can guess how well that worked out – especially once the alcohol started flowing and we decided to write our own Cards Against Humanity questions….)
