Two weeks ago I had such a lovely weekend, that I wanted to pop some photos on my blog to record it.
Firstly, I managed to take an outfit photo (I'm not sure if anyone actually likes seeing my outfits?!) but I liked what I was wearing, so I took a few snaps.
I was channelling 'The Railway Children' with my cream tights and new boots that I got for Christmas. They are soo comfy, and quite pretty yet hardwearing!
I had arranged to meet the BF at Camden Town, so I got to the Tube station and waited on the platform. It was freezing! When I met him we headed off to get something to eat at The Diner. Its a great American style diner and the food is sooo yummy. Also, as you know I love anything retro, so The Diner is definitely a winner with me!
I had the Blueberry Pancakes with maple syrup and a Cherry coke!
I neeeed to learn how to make pancakes that taste and look as delicious as theses.
I love blueberries, and the blueberry compote was gorgeous! The BF went for a burger with trimmings!
After our meal we had a nice walk around the stables market area. They had some gorgeous fairy lights up left from Christmas, it looked really magical, especially as it started to get darker.
I love the markets in Camden, but the stables especially, as they have a lot of vintage goodies and some gorgeous dress shops too. I was very restrained though, only browsing and didn't buy a single thing, which makes a change for me!
On the Sunday we decided - spur of the moment - to go to the National History Museum, as there was a pop up ice rink set up in front of the museum, and so we decided to give it a whirl!
As we first walked in we saw this stunning carousel, which looked so pretty lit up in the dark.
The trees all around the ice rink were draped in fairy lights and there was Christmas music playing (a little late, but still nice none the less!) it was really lovely, and very busy!
We were really lucky with our timing, as it was the last day before the rink closed, and as we got off the ice it just began to rain! We had been outdoor skating once before, in our first year together, at Somerset House, which was also lovely, but we both agreed this rink was nicer, and that it was good to have the museum near by to visit after the skate!
It was a lovely end to a really lovely weekend, and something I think we will make an annual tradition.
I love having this new year, for new ideas, experiences and creating memories and traditions.
What are you enjoying about 2012?
