Shopping in London

I visited London last week, hoping to enjoy the sales. I think arriving over one week after the sales have started is a bit too late though and I ended up buying most things in Primark as usual..

I have to say that is has been 1,5 years since I had been to London and I found many new shops. It's like you find a selection of the coolest shops in the world and there are all there on and around Oxfordstreet; you will find most of the Spanish shops (mostly Inditex) such as Zara, Mango, Massimo Dutti, Bershka and Tezenis (was surprised to find a huge shop one of the corners of Oxford Cirkus), you have some of the Danish shops such as Vera Moda and Bik Bok, you have Japanese shops such as Uniqlo and other shops that I personally like such as Urban Outfitters, Dorothy Perkins and All Saints. As always I also visited Topshop on Oxford Cirkus - a great shop but did not find any must-haves this time. Nevertheless, I wanted to reccomend the new restaurant/coffee shop they got downstairs, called Eat. Healthy sandwiches and soups with an Asian twist. I got a vegetable-noodle soup with duck dumplings - yum!

Back to the shopping; I found a long blue skirt in New look, reduced to 10,00 pounds and then the rest I bought in Primark.

I got a long blue cardigan (12,00 pounds),

- a t-shirt (3 pounds), a black cardigan (6 pounds) and a small bag (4 pounds).

Christmas presents

Since the holidays do not really finish before after the Holy three kings (6th of January) I only recently received my last presents. Here a small recap of the some gifts;

Got mainly clothes and jewellery this year, which is fantastic as it's always something you can use. On the picture; A couple of blouses from H&M, a top from Vera Moda, a dress from Esprit (really cute actually) and a scarf from Dayaday. I also got a jewellery box, a small table (for breakfasts in bed, yeh!), a book, slippers and perfume.

Jewellery wise I got a necklace from my dear boyfriend from Tiffany & Co. and two pair of really cute earrings from family and a friend.

While I was in Denmark for Christmas I also bought a small present for myself; these pair of shoes from Dope, reduced to 200 kr.

From me to me...

Okay, I know Christmas is all about giving to others - but before Christmas (when shopping for gifts) I fell over the loveliest necklace in our local Marc Jacobs shop! I did not, I am proud to say, buy it at the time - did not really have the money...! However just after Christmas when the new pay went in I couldn't get to the store quickly enough to get my LOVELY new chain!!

I think it is so adorable!! and best of all it was not expensive at all! It is from a new limited edition and I got it for 175 kr.! (23,33 Euros!!)
