Fancy some cheesecake? I did. For those with a sweet tooth or just a thing for desserts, you’ll understand what its like to have a craving, followed by the need to tend to it. Yes, mines was cheesecake and conveniently with the ingredients at hand; the Madagascan vanilla infused mascarpone and cream went down a treat, topped over a crushed digestive honey base. Yum.
Coming from Brazil where the merchandise is far less authentic, I went a little crazy when I got to Peru. From traditional stripped gringo trousers, the cutest fabric backpacks, alpaca jumpers, blankets, scarfs and socks to pretty patterned purses, quirky leather handbags and funky footwear; I’ve become obsessed. I mean how can I not? Everything is so awesome. The bright colours. The cool textiles. The unbelievably soft baby lama apparel. The unique patterns. The authentic essence. I love it all and I can not get enough.
So I’ve gone passed denial and reached acceptance now, because since landing in Peru I haven’t managed to walk through a single textiles market and not buy a thing. After holding back my shopping addiction for 10 weeks, I’ve well and truly had a relapse- now I have no control. So yes, I’ve become a market junkie.
I’m not quite sure why or how I’ve gone back to embracing my inner shopaholic; it’s not like I’ve been able to walk into Zara, Topshop or Selfridges in the past 3 months. Nevertheless, I now have two pieces of extra luggage filled with South American goodies and I can’t wait to get home and utilise them all. I’m actually quite looking forward to summer in the UK. With less than 3 weeks to go; bring it on!
For someone like me who has never really been a trainer lover, but more of a pretty shoes- “loubis type” junkie, I love Nike Blazers and these lady-like “Nikeys”. These limited edition Nike Dunk Sky Highs represent the four FASHION capitals of the world; London, Paris, New York and Milan and are part of the “city pack” collection. Found in the glamorous-est of them all; New York City, in Soho’s Nike store; Im not keen on them all but nevertheless I was eager to snapped them up!
