Lomography Gallery Store

Yesterday the boyfriend and I paid the Lomography Gallery Store a visit. Not Ben's cup of tea if I'm honest, but I really wanted to go, and he's nice so he came with me!

The shop is really cool - it's got a huuuge lomowall - the biggest in the UK, apparently - and you can buy the full range of lomographic products.

One thing I did find annoying is that there wasn't any price tags on anything. When I asked a sales assistant, she told me it was a way to entice people to talk to them. I think it's just a ploy to make people spend more money than they should! I was quite restrained though. I came away with the Lady Grey film and fotoclips. I also got a freebie pack of buttons as I checked in on foursqaure!

After all that excitement, we headed to Nando's for lunch, then a spot of shopping in Covent Garden. I bought one of h&m's £3.99 bodycon skirts in a lovely rusty orange colour and this tee in green from Zara, which I'm in love with! Stopped off at Candy Cakes where Ben treated us to a double chocolate cupcake each, before heading home.

Delish!

The rest of my weekend has been spent watching X Factor [anyone else think Frankie Cocozza is really crap and just looks a mess?], laying in bed and drinking lots of tea, taking photos on my Diana F+ using the instant back and generally slobbing about. That's what Sundays are all about :)

  1. Oh wow, those cameras look amazing.

    And so does that cake!

    I also think Frankie is awful, no idea why he got through!
    Who do you think will leave tonight? :)

    I also agree on what you think about Sunday's, they are there to be lazy!

  2. Frankie is absolutely talentless and should brush his hair and get those women's names lasered off his arse.
