I went out for a family meal for my birthday, in a lovely Caribbean Restaurant in Exmouth Market, called Cottons’. Superb food and great service I must say! My taste-buds were officially tantalized… Even my mother enjoyed it, and she is a complete and utter Caribbean food snob, ’cause she thinks her Curry Goat is the best in London – her nose was left a little out of joint following her belly being filled rather nicely. Her quiet clearing of her plate spelled that out pretty clearly. Yes, we had the Curried Goat – typical I know – well, more like the Goat had us, as we simply couldn’t move afterwards. Sadly I didn’t take any photos of my meal with my “proper camera”, I took some on my phone, but thats one of the first generation Iphones (I refuse to invest into any more Iphones until like the Iphone 10), which is as much use photographically as a green screen…

I channelled Lady Mary Poppins, for this outting, but gave my look a little 80’s twist!

I didn’t get to get my Lace-Up Witch Boots from OFFICE, into the frame *boo* so I’d suggest wearing a studded black Witch Boot from OFFICE, these boots are quite amazing, might I add?
They are current SS13 for OFFICE.
All that was missing from this get up, was a Little Black Parasol Umbrella, but it wasn’t raining that night, and I have a bad habit of losing umbrellas just about anywhere and everywhere!

If you live in London and get to check out Cottons Restaurant, please do, I promise you and your stomach will not be disappointed! I’ve grabbed these images from Google Images for you… (no copyright infringement intended, promise.)

Good Evening Bloggettes and Followers…

Happy Snow Day!

At long last the snow is here – mind you, I hate snow. Not because I’m all “bah humbug” or anything, just because it’s a nuisance. Snow usually means, someone like me is unfortunate enough to slip a disk wearing inappropriate shoes on an ungritted path. Snow usually means, someone like me, having to dodge the streets of Hackney at the sight of school children welding giant (stone-filled) snow balls. Snow usually means delays to public transport, when someone like me actually has somewhere important to go. What snow doesn’t always mean, is a SNOW DAY, where everything is closed and no-one can get to work; that’s what snow meant a few years back for London Town. Sadly, my roads are gritted just enough to permit the (smooth enough) running of public transport, but not quite gritted enough to stop me from slipping right onto my arse.

Now, since the sad passing of my Deena & Ozzy Platform Shoes (I wore her right down to a regular shoe height), I have been long looking for an apt replacement. Much to my dismay, I could never find a platform with a nice enough shoe attached, or a shoe with a decent enough platform, that wasn’t a garish colour or a lurid PU fabric. Luckily enough, just last week I found a pair from OFFICE in the sale, probably because they are pretty ugly, but I think they are pretty ugly, in a pretty kinda way. You know, the way stiletto nails are “pretty” ugly when they are less Ursula from little mermaid, and more Rhianna, Hackney Weekender? Yip.
What is great about these Moon Boots, is that they pivot me high enough from the ground, so that I look as if I’m hover-walking on ice/snow/sludge!

Here are my Snow/Moon/Space Boots:

What’s more is that they are surprisingly comfortable! Clunky shoes all the way…
