I don't know where time goes these days. I don't seem to have time to blog, I never go to the cinema, my magazines go unread, supermarkets are exotic places that get visited once every three weeks or so. It doesn't feel like other commitments and interests have taken over in their place, so I can't explain my current predicament. I am, however, clearly still shopping. Some things never change...

Markus Lupfer is right up my street. It is quite clear that I could never say 'No' to a jumper with a sequin pattern of a cat and dog in a Christmas style wreath, right?

First off I must tell you the momentous news... I DID NOT GO TO BARNEY'S. Really. I didn't. In fact for me I didn't shop that much, despite still returning home with two full bags. One bag was actually full of M&Ms, nuts, goji berries, cereal bars and agave nectar so that doesn't count, right? Not all the thrift stores on the Upper East Side were open but enough for me to get a couple of goodies that I was chuffed to bits with. I also went to J Crew for the first time (woah, overpriced much?) and had a quick whizz mostly around the accessories of H&M and F21 which we of course have in England but always seems to stock stuff that sells out in seconds back home. Clearly we have different tastes across the pond. It's a win win shopping situation for me.

My Mum talked me out of buying these Zara shoes when they were full price but luckily they were featured in the sale so I picked these up for less than £30 around Christmas time. They are the kind of shoe that invite comments. Taxi drivers say they pulled over for me because the gold flashes caught their eye, strangers in supermarkets tell you they love them and they even seem to steer on the right side of kooky cool for the guys at the office who haven't fallen about laughing at them. At least not to my face.

Whistle stop trip to NY last weekend to see G, visit the Joaquin Sorolla and the Art of Spanish Dress exhibition at the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute, hit the charity shops and run some in Central Park.
It all went pretty well apart from the bit before the plane had even taken off on Friday night when a bag fell on my head from the overhead lockers. Turns out they do injure people. I had, and still have, whiplash from that one incident over a week ago now. I am all glamour.
