You know I try to live without regrets

I had an hour to kill in between shoots while I was in London for work and as I was in my old stomping ground I decided to have a little mooch around Leather Lane Market whilst grabbing a drink. I used to make regular lunchtime trips to this market on my lunchbreak when I worked around the corner. It's a shame it's only on offer during the week but I find the clothing stalls also make the rounds at Petticoat Lane on a Sunday.  It has some cracking food stalls and cafes alongside a few clothing stalls that offer various Topshop/Asos/Dorothy Perkins bits. It was very hit and miss but you never knew what you was going to stumble across and I got some amazing bargains. This day I struck gold and walked away with this black midi as well as the same skirt in baby blue and a mint floral asos midi. All for £30. How could I have said no?

Tomorrow I shall be off to Glasto and keeping my fingers crossed I haven't forgotten anything. I'm so excited to spend a whole week listening to my favourite bands and just generally chilling out without much care in the world apart from what cider i'm going to drink and what food stall to choose. I have a few posts for you scheduled but i'll see you in a week! Hopefully i'll make it back in one piece!
