I Drink Cups of Tea

Remember the days when we loved the so called Nu Rave and listening to Kate Nash and wishing we dress like Blue Peter Presenters? Well I certainty do.

I realised I still like the likes of the Klaxons, Teenagers, Kate Nash and all those other bands I swooned over my Uni years.

So I am afraid but I am going to post some Kate Nash Songs, as her songs reminded me of a two boy at that stage of my life. I had a lot of silly teenage mixed emotions with them both (I can say I was definitely a teenager at Uni as I started Uni at grand age of 17). It is quite sad I would probably cry if I saw them again with the background music playing a bit of Kate Nash. I am so daft and a loser.

I probably feeling a bit Kate Nash mood due to stupid school girl crush. Must learn not to lust after forbidden fruit.

P.S. I like the cartoon youtube videos of Kate Nash song. Very keepfing with the Blue Peter wannabe look. Kids presenter sheek!

"There is a willow grows askant a brook,
That shows his hoar leaves in the glassy stream;
There with fantastic garlands did she come,
Of crow-flowers, nettles, daisies, and long purples,
That liberal shepherds give a grosser name,
But our cold maids do dead men's fingers call them:
There, on the pendent boughs her coronet weeds
Clambering to hang, an envious sliver broke,
When down her weedy trophies and herself
Fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide,
And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up;
Which time she chanted snatches of old tunes,
As one incapable of her own distress,
Or like a creature native and indu'd
Unto that element; but long it could not be
Till that her garments, heavy with their drink,
Pull'd the poor wretch from her melodious lay
To muddy death."

In a very odd mood and been loving my flower garland too much. Must start wearing it with long vintage dresses and curly locks again. Wished I had long gingery hair. Damn this devil's black hair.

Parisian Love and Madrid Affair.

Wearing my standard red beret I have owned since I was 16, vintage breton striped cropped jumper from Paris, Vintage Watch necklace and rosemary beads from the Vatican.

Feeling Parisian today and missing Paris. Need to visit it again for better cliché camera moments when it is not pouring with rain. Definitely need to visit Rue des Rosiers for their vintage cheap shops. I cannot say no to EUR 5 fur and EUR 10 bags.

Some of my favourite shops around the area. I regret not eating a falafel around Saint Pauls, I hear it is the best in town. More excuses for me to go!

Looks like I have to settle for Madrid next weekend. Yes girls and boys I am flying to Madrid for a long weekend with the gay husband to visit his sister. More for the sake we both need a cheap holiday and with free accommodation and cheap airline tickets we are not denying the offer.

*SPOILER * Angels Retro Sale *SPOILER*

Some will know the success of the warehouse sale in 2008 well it is sort of back again with a retro sale next year on Saturday 6th February 2010.

They had a military sale last weekend but I was unfortunately making my way to Paris buying vintage fur and dresses (one went down very well last night during a work Christmas Under 30s night. That night was deferentially as some will class as 'meat market').

SO highlight Saturday 6th February to make another trip to rummage and fight for all your retro finds.
