This past week was more eventful than expected. After coming home from Lagos I was hoping to spend the week relaxing. That failed rather miserably.. but in a good way if that at all makes sense. I ended up attending a magazine launch party on Wednesday (Twin Magazine). Being given the opportunity to do these things is surely one of the benefits of working in the fashion indsutry. Following the launch party at The Russian Club we headed over to Shoreditch house with some friends. If any of you ever get a chance to go there PLEASE try the burratta cheese.. it is to die for. Friday we ended up at an underground house music party in east London (Dalston Superstore) which was a great night full of music and dancing. I recently downloaded the Hed Kandi Beach House CD which is pretty good if any of you are interested. Saturday night we went to a friend’s loft/patio party in Angel… complete contrast of music from the first night given that it was filled with 90′s R&B but still great. I suppose my taste in music is rather ecclectic, if you will. Today of course (along with all my other Sundays) I spent the day embedded in vintage clothing/markets… mmm what a nice weekend! Here are some outfits I have worn recently.. along with weekend pics:

As promised, I have posted some pics from last night. Wild night I must say. Today Jordy and I went to the markets and explored more amazing food and shopping. We went to a random thai restaurant for dinner and just got back. We bought the most amazing tea today by this tea company called Yumchaa. I got the flavor Chili Chili Bang Bang and it is UNREAL. For all you tea lovers, check out http://www.yumchaa.co.uk – they deliver!

As promised, here are the pictures of where I live and my place.
Liverpool Street Station – about 4 minutes walking from my flat. Great area with a ton of bars and restaurants. Also, the Spitalfields market (which I mentioned in an earlier post) is just a 3 minute walk from my building. Here they call big grocery stores food halls. I am thrilled that I have a Tesco and M&S (Marks and Spencers) just a short walk from my flat. I finally did a big grocery shop there today.. feels nice not to have such an empty fridge!
My flat – its a brand new place and super clean! The view is great since I am on the 13th floor.
Thought I would share with you some of the stuff that I got since I’ve been here.
Vintage briefcase – actually, this one belongs to my dad. I have been eyeing this briefcase for months and he finally let me borrow it for my time here in London! Very excited about this one.
Bangles – Topshop.
Great statement pieces for any minimalistic outfit.
Raincoat – Topshop.
Necessity for London.
Met up with a friend for drinks last night at the Mayfair Hotel. Really trendy bar there and just a short 5 minute walk from where Starworks is!
sheer top – Urban, tank – Wilfred, pants – Topshop, lace-ups – Urban, bangle – Topshop
