Following part one of my Christmas Market adventures.. Once we had consumed enough of the Christmas spirit (and food!) around Grande Parade we ventured off into other parts of the city for various presents for some favourite people in our lives. My little brother’s hitting a milestone this New Years Day, finally turning the big 21! I knew exactly what I wanted to get him even if it did mean costing me a pretty penny.. I’m going to have to keep quiet about what it is because I’m not sure does he read my blog..! Returning to one of my old favourite haunts as a teenager.. Darla wanted her Smiley pierced and I needed to get a few awkward piercings of my own changed around so we plonked ourselves down on the sofa and waited for that rather lovely piercing man to attend to us. Watching D getting pierced brought back a serious case of the piercing/tattoo itch. Maybe i’ll get one with my next pay check.. Is this not the most beautiful shop you have ever set your eyes upon? It reminds me of what my bedroom would look like if I continued to fund my habit of pretty delicate things. I really love the skull mirror and dainty bunting. Makes me want to hide away for a week and craft till my hearts content. More awesome bendy street performers. They were really funny and had a cute little mime-show going on. Seeing the little children wetting themselves laughing was priceless.
Finally, a favourite detail from yesterdays outfit. I’m not big into outfit posts but I do like the little details in some of my favourite put together outfits. My Octopus necklace got quite a number of compliments, wearing it as a broach with my sheer shirt made it pop out that little bit more without looking too much. It’s the little things in my life I love :) Have you been to any Christmas markets or plan too? I’m hoping to re-visit this market next weekend too! XO
