Saturday night me and Rory decided pizza, cider and a movie were in order.

With an Italian playlist and a Jamie Oliver pizza crust recipe we diced and mixed and tossed and then perched in front of The Devil Wears Prada. I think between the two of us we knew every single line from that movie.

We maybe overdid it on the dough and I was eating pizzas for days. Not that that's a complaint.

From My Phone

I always find pictures I forgot I took when scrolling through my phone photo album. So I thought I'd share a few!

I think these were called Traveler's cookies? Or perhaps they were called Crack Cookies. Because I had one and I want more. (At Greenwich Market)

Do not miss that snow, do miss that little face. (A picture my mom sent me!)

Afterwards we wandered through Covent Garden to a few thrift shops there, I loved these colorful sweaters (Old Man Sweaters, as my mom calls them!)

Finished the day with a Sunday Roast compliments of my roommate Tom, and some roasted pears for dessert from Joe.

Another successful Sunday in London.

 The weather was gorgeous (again) the other day, so I made my way to cross off another item on the London To-Do List I have going.

I read about Daunt Books someplace or another, and had seen a picture of that gorgeous interior and that was enough for it to be added to the exclusive list (or not so exclusive.. it's about as long as my arm).
I walked here from London Bridge, with a two-hour mini break at Trafalgar Square where I sat writing and drinking a juice and people watching. It was so warm! I still can't get over this weather (I know, I know, shut up about the weather Sara).

After sitting for aaages I decided to get my butt in gear and made my way to Daunt Books while the sun was juuuust starting to make it's way down in the sky. Sidenote: the days are getting longer and that is just another thing I could talk about repeatedly but I'll save you that. You're welcome.

Daunt is on Marylebone High Street, which is quite a cute little street if you ask me. I sent a text to my friend Ashley shortly after arriving saying something along the lines of "heaven must look like this." Because ohhhhhhh my. It's just a really pretty shop. And is full of really pretty books. I could have happily spent an entire day in there looking at everything and now the list of books I want is even longer than usual.

Go here if you're ever in London and you love books! Feel free to buy me the book of love letters in the third photo down while you're there.
