Where Upon She Decided to Sit in the Middle of the Road

Sunday’s photographic walk about took place in Dalston and Shoreditch. I live in Dalston and although I am unashamedly biased, I must say that I can never tire of my surroundings. Though humble and ramshackle, the area is vibrant, colourful and never ever boring.

The market stalls are usually empty on Sundays.

There is something about corrugated iron roofs! They remind me of growing up in Kenya. Heavy rain on iron roofs is a clash of noise.
Next door to the African Veggie stall. Never been a fan of plantain but I love yams.

Pondering interesting textures.


My friends!! WHO DOES THESE? I simply MUST know.

She sat in the road.

Spilled frills

Tidy up my tights!

My dress came was made by SELFI in South Africa.

Jacket was from my dear China Plate: http://xppinkxx.blogspot.com/
The frilly petticoat was from Gmarket

Tights from TABIO

Nude shoes with gold studs from Ridley Road Market.


I used VOV COLORSONG EYES single shadows to create this splash of colour that were a gift from the talented Anastasia!

Shades: 7161 Pink Pony and 7146 Shes Barbie Pink.



I bought him some shoes. So he jacket up his jeans to make sure he can see them as he walked. Bless


I bought him some black brogues from Crockett & Jones. They are handmade and each pair takes 8 weeks to make and involves 200 different processes.

I think mine must have taken 2 seconds upon a factory line in China. Haha

Time for tea! We went to our local tea shop, Belle Epoque in Stokey. I had the pistachio opera and Hiro had a lemon roll cake which was particulary tasty. I marvelled at the way they managed to craft a delicate layer of meringue over the roll.

A Few Changes at The House of Blues:

Have you noticed that I have updated my banner? I thought it was time for some spring cleaning.


I have my own domain! Yes, Worship at the House of Blues has it’s very own web kingdom.


Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee for me!
