One more for the road...

Am clearly on a bit of a posting spree today! But this continues the sunglasses theme, so indulge me.

These pics were from last saturday when B and I had a date night- not anything too extravagant, just a simple commitment to going out and doing something other than take the easy option and camp at home with the tv and some take out (and it is usually me that wants to stay home and vegetate). B planned the date, and definitely gets brownie points for originality.

We started with a visit to the Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising in Notting Hill. Great place!! Like teleporting back through the ages to see the types of things that nestled in typical British cupboards and pantries over the decades. I highly recommend.

Then we went to Tiroler Hut for dinner- a nearby Austrian restaurant with rustic fare, excellent apple schnapps and a quaint little old man playing a keyboard in the corner.

Kate wasn't there (in case you were wondering), but this is the photo they use on their website which is pretty hilarious and dated looking. Nevertheless, they have hearty food, generous portions and really friendly staff. I felt a bit like a stuffed sausage myself when we left, but a great place to visit if huge quantities of meat, mash and beer appeal.

Finally, we watched 'This must be the place' at the cinema. Bizarre flick. Sean Penn as some kind of Ozzy Osborne/Robert Smith/Michael Jackson hybrid character is superb. I loved it. B thought it was just plain weird. You decide.

This is what I wore:
 (Skirt- Carin Wester; Jacket- ASOS; Skivvie- Uniqlo; Sparkly socks- Tabio; Shoes- Opening Ceremony; Bag- Givenchy)

I'm also currently obssessed with this paprika coloured lip pencil from Nars- it's a Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in 'Red Square'. It's loud, bright and lasts all day. Most of all, it makes me smile.
(Sunglasses- Club Monaco; Necklace- Kenneth Jay Lane)

B- thanks again for the great date :)
