Festive Photos

Well readers I promised you a picture post, so here I am. Photos of Christmas around London.

A decorated window of Selfridges in Oxford Street and one of the Christmas trees by the entrance

The Oxford Street Christmas lights and some of Regent Street too.

Some of the decorations inside the Disney Store
Selfridges lit up beautiful and purple
A Christmas tree in Fortnum and Mason, Piccadilly
And some of their in-store decorations and window displays with the 'Showtime'Theme.

And with that I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Book Review!

Curse my temperamental internet that never allows me to post when I really want to. I have had this problem for the past two weeks, and I only have a small window of opportunity that lets me blog, so here is a short one.

Here is a great review of the Bollywood Breakup Agency by the lovely people at Trashionista

After the first review, it was nice to read some positive thoughts on the book.

And in other news, my next post before Christmas will be a picture post   :D

See you on the other side.

Happy December

I thought I would do a different post today, something that has nothing to do with the book for a change, as I have been doing a lot of that lately.

Things I am looking forward to ...

  • Ice Skating 
  • Winter Wonderland
  • Christmas lights
  • Christmas Carols
  • Snow (providing I don't have to travel anywhere)

What I am not looking forward to ...
December just reminds me of when I used to work in retail, and as soon as the first of the month hit us, all we would hear was Christmas music. I am no Scrooge, I like this time of year, but there is only so many times I can hear the same songs over and over again, and I only used to work part time.
Not only that, every year we are bombarded with adverts for CDs that contain the same songs, and every year they tell us it is the 'only Christmas album you'll ever need'. So why oh why do they sell that same CD every year with the same songs on it? Surely the people who would have wanted to buy the music would have bought the music by now.

So tell me ... What are you and aren't you looking forward to this December?
