One year later...

Tomorrow will be the 1st anniversary of having my Pashley Princess :)

I wanted to mark the occasion by getting a little something made especially by one of my favourite London based Jewellery Designers. I got a call on Wednesday telling me my order was ready, so yesterday me and The Boy went out on a special Cycle Saturday to Brick Lane (via Spitalfields) to collect my piece.

First stop was St John Bread & Wine for breakfast - we'd set off early enough (breakfast is only served between 10 - 11am) to stop there for something to eat. On a cold March morning, the pots of Tea and quite possibly the best "door stop" Bacon Sarnies you'll ever eat in London were necessary!

After filling our faces, we cycled on towards Brick Lane to collect the Name Necklace that I had ordered from Tatty Devine...

... I'm sure my smile tells you that I'm more than pleased! A massive "thank you" goes to the lovely girls at Tatty Devine for this - especially as they made sure the necklace was made on time for the anniversary - that was a very nice touch indeed which was appreciated :)

The past 12 months have been fantastic & I'm loving all of the links, friendships and adventures that have come with it... and I hope it continues to be this way... Cycling & Fashion - it works! :)

Of course, I can't blog without mentioning the outfit for the day...
