At the weekend we headed to up north to Hampstead for the Hamstead Summer Festival. Hampstead is already a gorgeous neighbourhood and this street festival just made it even nicer to wander around. In an attempt to embrace summer I went for all white. These jeans are my go-to summer item now, so much love for white jeans.
Just to keep it interesting and add some colour, I brought the green bag! Perfect summer colour.
Bag: Michael Kors
So the festival was great, food stalls, music, yadda yadda, blah blah - THERE WERE BIRDS OF PREY. Now normally I hate birds, I get the fear. It's the flapping. If eyes are the windows to the soul, than birds have dark souls, void of emotion, and full of malicious intent to poop on everyone, and peck their eyes out. Birds are creepy is what I'm saying.
But look at the baby owl! She's so cute! Julie's spirit animal is the owl, and she was in her element with this Boobook owl. This is the look of owl induce euphoria.
And their heads do turn backwards! Super cute sightly demonic birds... But wait until you hear the chirruping sounds this little boobook makes - watch the video and prepare to squeal at the cuteness.
I was more infatuated with this one. This is a white hybrid falcon. I think I like birds of prey because mum would always point out hawks at home and she likes them. In New Zealand there were so many hawks I started a daily hawk count and would randomly shout out 'HAWK' every time I saw one (which would go much like this), because I'm cool like that.
No one was supervising this one and we were to afraid to touch it, but it was so fluffy.
A trip to Hampstead would not be complete without a trip to La Crêperie de Hampstead. You can tell by the queue and the fact it has been a fixture since 1980 that this place is good. The crêpe caravan of heaven is found just off Hampstead High Street beside the King William IV pub. They do both sweet and savoury to keep everyone happy, but all I really care about is chocolate so no surprises what I got!
A dark chocolate hazelnut crunch, admittedly you can't see any chocolate because it is buried inside where when I came across it, it unexpectedly spilled out all over me. I was a mess by the end of it, but a delighted mess all the same.
