Read, Write, Do

[Ruffled blouse - Primark a few years ago, Jeans - Topshop, Leopard print pumps (these are my new favourite comfy shoe) - H&M]

Pre-holiday stress has taken over my life.

Today's dilemma is about what books to take with me. I'm pretty sure I'm not even going to get much time to read since I'm not going on a typical "lie beside the pool all day" kind of holiday (if I was I'd need to take at least five books!), but the plane journey takes 11 hours so I will probably read then at least. I may have to take a last minute trip to Waterstones on Sunday!


Aside from clothes shops, I think Waterstones (a UK bookstore) is probably my favourite other shop, even if I don't purchase books there that often.
I just love browsing the whole store (especially the travel writing section, and the recipe books and all of the fiction...) and being surrounded by all of these works that people have spent their time and energy and passion completing. It is very inspiring!


Aside from clothing stores, what is your favourite type of store to visit?
