I always do a Portobello market trip at this time of the year. Sunny autumn days make me want to go and rifle through the stalls of really good value cashmere they always have there, perfect for stocking up for winter.
There were some absolute bargains, with prices as low as £8 for a perfectly lovely Aran jumper. I didn't buy it, I'm chunky enough without wearing chunky jumpers. Aran was everywhere though; I saw a girl looking very lovely in a bobbled number. My Grandma used to knit me and my brothers Aran jumpers that we refused to wear because they were too itchy.
I didn't find the fluffy jumper of my dreams either, sadly.
I liked these dresses, really well-made in thick African printed cottons. And only £15.
Who doesn't love a good button rummage?
As it was a girls day out, cupcakes were high on the menu. These were pretty tasty looking...
...but we saved ourselves for black bottom cupcakes at the Hummingbird Bakery. No pictures of those, they didn't last long enough.We nearly died when they described them: dark chocolate sponge with cheesecake baked in the centre. I am totally going to try making these at home, here is the recipe.
