Lennon and the teacup

Tea is much like a reliable friend - always there to solve the little problems in life. Though I wouldn't be surprised if tea were the true elixir of life. If there is anything that'll help me through the day (read: dissertation research, hangovers, all-nighters in the Media School, photo editing), it is a cup of tea. And a big one at that.

Lennon and the teacup

Often, I will return from the Boscombe and Pokesdown vintage shops with a new bow tie. Yesterday however, I came back with the ultimate vessel for the ultimate beverage. This five-inch diameter teacup came from an adorable place called 'The Crooked Book', which combines a bookshop with a café and vintage boutique. I had to resist buying a few other things while I was there, including retro kitchen utensils and mahoosive teapots. Once I have a place of my own, I will be raiding shops like The Crooked Book for their delightful homewares, as to decorate my house with a vintage quality.

The John Lennon-esque sunglasses were a cheap find from 'Clobber', down the other end of the street. I had always felt reluctant to buy round sunglasses, since I was never too sure if the style would complement the shape of my face, but this particular style appears to suit me well. (You can judge for yourselves in an upcoming outfit post.) I love finding quirky accessories to make my personal style a little more intriguing, especially when I cannot afford to buy a new jacket or such like.
