I love Ikea- its propably the best furtanture shop in the whole world and your childhood was missing out if you never went there.
My sister and her fiance was looking for things for when they move out and I urgently needed extra storage in my room (as its bacially two rooms after returning from a year at uni 3 years ago squashed into a tiny box room), and a bedside lamp. Bought some pretty boxes and a very cool lamp which is noway near as bright as I need but Chris has fallen in love with.
It was a very fun day- acting as parent when my sister started bulling her fiance, putting my seat belt on wrong, getting lost driving round Tottenham (lucky was me in the driving seat), and having the hilarious moment when a man was so intent on checking me out that he obviously turned back to stare and walked into my sisters fiance. I am in no way bragging- it was just so funny to watch we were all practically wetting ourselves.

My socks were repeatably falling down all day and the sun is in my eyes in these photos but I loved the opportunity off once again wearing my summer clothes out into autumn. I'm starting to tell that either I cannot buy summer clothes, or I buy clothes that are suitable all year round, or I am really good at making use of my summer clothes. I have yet to buy new clothes for this season, not that I don't want to (if only my bank was healthy) but more I have so much stuff that already is on trend I can't justify it.
Am I alone in being so ... OK with the a/w season? I love layering up!
