The week in photos

December 30, 2012

Since last weekend I was quite jetlagged and busy with life I missed last week’s Instagram post. That will now be corrected as I shall share the photos that have been taken on the week prior to my arrival in Florida. Next week I will show the Floridian photos and get up to date with them.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram under the handle @hellothemushroom

I couldn’t resist the Hello Kitty lipstick.

Jingle berry pie

An all black look, with high heeled Zara shoes.

Tights and glittery boots from Primark

Doodle at work

The messenger of the gods boots I got from Ebay. They’re awesome!

I’m making an elastic ball, courtesy of the royal mail. Will be updating it regularly.

Waiting for the train to the airport, wearing my lovely Office shoes I got from Ebay!

This is what lack of sleep looks like. Thank god for instagram filters. I’m wearing the gorgeous beret I got from Eulalia!

I was reading Vintage Life Magazine on the train. I’ve never seen the word ” vintage” appear so many times in one paragraph. Lol

Saying my (temporary) goodbyes to rubbish English weather, in antecipation of warmer days in Florida.

Fellow waiting passengers.

This time I flew BA. I don’t regret it. I was treated to a better seat with more leg room and a complimentary glass of bubbly by one of the crew members after I agreed to move seats so a couple could sit together. He said, kindness must be repaid with kindness and so he did!

Sitting there watching the planes take off reminded me of being a kid and going to the airport to see the airplanes!

It soon got old and I took to doodling my surroundings, out of boredom. After almost 24 hours after I left my front door in England I arrived safely in Tampa International Airport, after a 4 hour layover in NYC. Phew! The hubby picked me up and it was great to see him again.

Sunrise in Florida!

I will be posting more adventures over the next few days. Stay tuned!

    Ha, that paragraph had me chuckling over the surfeit of vintage, and the “vintage brides”. Doesn’t sound very flattering!
    Lovely shots of your journey to Florida, Sara. And those boots are amazing! xxxx
