The Souvenir Tee

T-shirt (NY), Cardigan (H&M), Denim cropped jacket (ASOS), Skirt (Topshop), Belt (Zara) Wooly Tights (PrettyPolly)

I wore this outfit last Sunday, before the all the snowmen started appearing (I can't believe I haven't made one yet as work has been getting in the way!)

I bought the tee in the Summer when I went to NY (of course) but have failed to wear it since. Probably because it is so touristy and I always see people with them on, whether or not they bought the tees in NY or UO. I decided to wear it today regardless. At the tourist info centre in Birmingham they have 'I heart Birmingham' tees which I find rather amusing. Birmingham isn't really all that happening for tourists...but also because 'Birmingham' takes up far too much space on the t-shirts and 'I heart B'Ham' just looks wrong.

I have also been tagged by the ever stylish, Starr

A) Four places that I go to over and over:
  • The Bus stop (boring I know...where I stare wistfully into UO which is located exactly tempting)
  • TopShop. I can't resist having a quick window shop after work.
  • Paperchase to buy materials for making cards and touching all the pretty paper.
  • Chung Ying Garden Cantonese restaurant in Birmingham (China town)
B) Four people who e-mail me (regularly):
  • Aunt
  • Uni friends
  • Facebook (kinda combines everyone I know)
  • Blogger/Amazon/ASOS/Bank etc.
C) Four favorite smells:
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Coffee
  • Baking cakes
  • New Books
D)Four places I would rather be right now:
  • Hong Kong, Causeway Bay to see my aunt's new apartment.
  • Japan...someone take me please!
  • Somewhere warm with a Australia.
  • At my best friend's house sipping tea and eating Nachos!
E) Four people I tag:
F) Four TV shows I watch:
  • Gossip Girl
  • 90210
  • Lost
  • Mei-chan no shitsuji (very cheesy Japanese drama. Hilariously bad/good. I'm not sure which!)
