Last weekend Dot and I went to London to do a bit of shopping on Oxford Street. I only got a couple of bits from H&M and Uniqlo. We also had a look in Carnaby Street, as well as Heddon Street, where David Bowie shot the cover of his Ziggy album.

On Sunday I had my first ever bloggers meetup at Lakeside Shopping Centre where I met 5 other Essex bloggers. The lovely ladies I had the chance to meet are Michelle, who organized the meetup, Chloe, April, Haydy and Jen. We had brunch at Ed's Diner and then went to do a little bit of shopping before heading back home.

Next week I have an interview for a new job and I'm a bit nervous but really excited as well, wish me luck!

Have a nice weekend.

Dresswe Apparel

With party season fast approaching it is important that you start looking into what you would like to be wearing during the Christmas and New Year festivities. At Dresswe they have short cocktail dresses for 2015 on promotion, and these are my favourite ones:

 

The left one is a classic little black dress with a twist - it features a sash to cinch in your waist and a lace detail over the shoulders and bust to add texture and cover up a bit more. The right one is a little more sparkly, with sequins lined up to give the illusion of an hourglass shape, this dress also has a sash to mark your waist, a V-neck and short sleeves.

And as well as dresses, Dresswe has a big collection of cheap ankle boots for women, and a couple of pairs that I liked are these ones:

 
These real leather motorcycle boots on the left have a gold buckle and chain detail and a tiny heel, they would look amazing with everything from dresses and jeans to shorts and skirts. The ankle boots on the right look really similar to the Jeffrey Campbell Lita boots and you can get them for a fraction of the price. I'm not a high heel sort of person but the fact that these have a huge platform and block heels makes them more comfortable and adds stability.

Currently listening for the first time to Julian Casablancas + The Voidz album and it's nothing like any of his previous work with the Strokes or by himself, it's quite weird and don't know if I like it yet, maybe it it will take a few more listens. I'm still a fan of the ol' Jules and we'll go see him next month.

Reading | Endgame: The Calling

Endgame: The Calling


Recently I received an early uncorrected proof copy of the book Endgame: The Calling, by James Frey and Nils Johnson-Shelton. The story is based around 12 ancient cultures from all over the world that were chosen millennia ago to represent humanity in Endgame, a global game that will decide the fate of humankind. Endgame has always been a possibility, but never a reality... until now. 

As 12 meteorites strike the earth, it signals each of the young (13 to 20 year old) Players that their time to try and win Endgame has begun. The winning Player gets to save their bloodline, the others will not, and in order to do so they must find 3 keys hidden around the world. In the first instalment of Endgame we get to meet the characters and their personalities as they fight their way to find the hidden keys in this game of life and death. They all have been training for almost as long as they've lived but only the strongest will survive. 

As I read Endgame: The Calling, I got into it more and more and find that it has a similar theme as The Hunger Games - playing a survival of the fittest type of game. The only thing that I can't really stand is that the Peruvian player is the Olmec (a pre-hispanic Mexican civilization) and on top of that his surname is Tlaloc (the Aztec god of rain). Other than that, the story is quite gripping and I can't wait to know who Engame's winner is, and see how it translates to film (Twentieth Century Fox has bought the movie rights).

There is also a treasure hunt inspired by the book Masquerade: each book is a puzzle and with the first one you can win $500,000 USD in gold coins if you can decipher the clues embedded inside the book, which will lead you to find the location of a hidden key that opens the box with the coins, currently on display in the Caesars Palace Hotel in Las Vegas. 

Find Endgame: The Calling on Amazon.
