Summer Wishlist purchases: Alphabet Bags bag

Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside

It was last on my list but the first item I bought. There were so many cool designs to choose from but I couldn't resist this one. It made me think of childhood holidays and my Dad singing old songs to me. It's from Alphabet Bags, who I cannot recommend highly enough. Super-fast delivery and such sturdy products. I still have a bag I bought from them 2 years ago- that one said 'I refuse to participate in a recession' haha!

Cardigan: New Look, T-Shirt: Topshop, Shorts: Topshop, Tights: tightsplease.com, Boots: Blowfish, Bag: Alphabet Bags

Sadly I'm not by the sea side and I can't walk along the prom, but I did have a nice Saturday off in the sun last weekend. Edd and I suddenly decided to check out The Cube. This incredible building is right next to The Mailbox in Birmingham, and I am so excited for it to open properly. Not that any of the shops or restaurants will be in my budget but no one can stop me walking through and having a nose!

The building is open now but there isn't anything open. I hadn't realised it is hollow with the floors winding round the outside. Very interesting architecture. Apparently the top floor is going to be a Marco Pierre White restaurant. Perhaps one for when I'm rich!
How cool are these statues? There are quite a few of them, apparently they are based on real people of Birmingham. And you can read more here.



Hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend! I'm wearing quite a bizarre outfit here as the weather threw me!

I just checked out Alphabet Bags...awesome! I hope they ship to the US. I always need bags to carry my books around in. Thanks for the comment, I'm glad you appreciate my love for The Zombies! Do you have "Begin Here"? It's 31 songs of Zombie goodness...unbelievable.
