Lyon - Part 2

The second part of my Lyon holiday, finally. Sorry for the delay, we had a big family reunion here in Glasgow and have been busy celebrating my Dad's birthday in amazing restaurants :)

Now for Lyon, on the Sunday we went to one of my favourite place: the flea market (Les Puces). It was about 30 degrees at 11 in the morning and the antic pieces were melting in the sun! Managed to find a cute little plate and some really cool retro coat hangers, a bargain.

All the usual sellers like to come for a glass of wine in this little Bistro where you can admire the Football scarves and big hams hanging from the ceiling.

This little shop was crazy, full of old books and creepy dolls. I didn't want to touch anything as it looked like it might all fall like a card castle!

This dress is one of my favourite summer dresses. I got it in TopShop 2 years ago and it's a perfect fit. My gran once told me "You have to always stay think enough to fit in this dress, it's so nice!" Thanks Mamy Pink!

This bike was so cool, the tyres were made of wood, it was so old! Would have liked it for myself but I found out that vintage wooden bikes can be very expensive!

My Dad and getting lost amongst letters...

Will be back soon with some photos of the birthday in Missoni hotel, how very fashionable! Hope you are all doing beautifully little borrowers.

Ps: Stay tuned for a soon to come BoRO shop...

Lyon (Part 1)

Hello darling Borrowers. Mommy E and I were both on holiday, sorry for the absence from the blog. But we are back now, Mommy E all tanned from Sonar and myself slightly less tanned but relaxed from holidays at home.

Spent a few days in France with Michael and my family to celebrate my birthday a couple of weeks late.

  It was very hot and I was glad to have my new Sessun dress, very light, perfect for the sun. It's funny, a couple of weeks ago I was saying how much I loved this summer's Sessun collection but how overpriced it was. And then, all my favourite items were on sale half price in UO. Bingo. I ended up getting the matching pink playsuit as well.

We had a fabulous lunch in an amazing restaurant. Check these out! And they were AFTER dessert, yep little treats with the coffee. Yumster.
Oh also, check out the quality of the photo...and why is that? Because I got a new camera for my birthday! My own Canon EOS 300D. It's brilliant, especially on close ups of food!



Can you guess the location? The water should help you...

More French adventures very soon...till then, have a lovely weekend! Xx
