November in pictures

A little late on posting this one, since it's already the 7th. New years resolution? to actually post things in a timely fashion.

Anyways, here's my November;

Yummy waitrose cupcakes. They have a really nice selection of pretty cakes on their bakery, that arn't too expensive. And they're even cheaper if you go at the end of the day and they are trying to get rid of them.

My favourite kind of starter; antipasti. This one was in Prezzo for my friends birthday.

My first red cup of the Christmas season. Everyone seems to have that toffee nut thing. I'm a gingerbread latte girl all the way!

The big lit up trees at Westfield (original, I still haven't been to the new one at Stratford) I went with my mum, who was down from Manchester for the weekend and she had never been. It was pretty funny because we walked from Goldhawk road to the Westfield, through Shepard's bush Common (which if you've never seen is gross). My mum used to work in Wood Lane, probably about 20 years ago by now, and as we turned the corner to the swishy tube station and the shiny-ness of the Westfield, she was really surprised. She said it had been such a nothing sort of place before.

 Some very cute cardigans in a store called 'Color' in the Westfield. However it was one of those shops where everything is one size and that size is tiny. I couldn't buy any of them.

 I couldn't decide if this was an actual yarn bombing, which is where people knit up covers for something then sneak out in the night and cover something with knitting, or something more planned. Either way, it was pretty cool.

Just some random, cool graffiti.

Dolly's brand pickle in an Indian Supermarket. What a good name for pickle.

One of those £4 boxes of food from Camden market. I didn't know this, but they are open until 11pm and by the evening are practically giving away the food. This is a box with everything that doesn't have lamb in it, I ate in the freezing cold with my friend Abi.

Hundreds of ladybird books at a carboot sale. I particually remember that cooking with mother book on the right with all its over saturated photos of food from the 1970s.

Okay so this is more October 31st than November, but how i spent my halloween. I was quite disappointed at the lack of 'proper' harry potter questions such as 'where does malfoy keep disappearing  to in the 6th book'. They were more 'look at this actor who played a minor role in one of the films. Name 3 other films he has been in'. The best team name was '99 problems but the snitch ain't one'.

This was at the food market on a Sunday on brick lane. I can't remember what food it is, I just liked the way it was arranged into neat sections.

 This I did eat. It's Indian Street food, and I can't remember what it was called. The woman smashes a hole in those crispy ball things, fill them with some lentil type stuff and then you dip them in that spicy water and stuff them in your mouth whole. Delicious.

And my favourite thing to eat, Ethiopian. It's all lentil based and rich without being spicy. yum. 

And a tasty meal in a caff. Looks like in November I mostly ate.

All photos I took myself. If you'd like to use them, please link back to my blog.
