10 things I love

My sweet friend Rosie has tagged me in a 10 things I love post. So, here I go! Thanks, Rosie! ;)

I love ...

Being married
David and I got married a month ago. We didn't have a party or a honey moon, but it was the happiest day of my life. I still find it hard to believe I'm someone's Mrs! :D

Animal patterned clothes (and stuff in general)
Whenever I see cats, bears, bunnies (the list goes on forever) ... on clothes, accessories or pretty much whatever, that's it! I feel like I have to own it, hehe.
Here's a picture of me wearing a blue dress full of little chihuahuas, a coat full of bears, a shopping bag with two bunnies and a bear shaped leather bag.

The Union Jack
I've been obsessed with it ever since I went to England, I think, over 15 years ago. I've always wanted to buy a pair of these Chuck Taylors (tribute to The Who), but I never have.

Going to tea houses and restaurants that are not chains
This is probably one of the things I miss the most about Buenos Aires. All the coolest cafes and restaurants are one of a kind and have no branches.

I love cats in general and Dimitri and Dante in particular; they're so spolied! :p

Vintage stores
I'm thrilled about the amount of real vintage stores you can find here in California! I'd been to a few in Argentina, but prices were usually too high and original vintage clothes were not as abundant. Here, you can get a cool shirt for USD 12 and dresses for USD 30.

Finding cool bargains
Clothes, books, anything! We bought these succulents in a swap meet; they were 1 buck each :).

Going to concerts
This is one of my all time favorites: Belle & Sebastian in Buenos Aires for the first time. Other unforgettable concerts are: Bjork, Radiohead and Keane's in Buenos Aires, too.

Gummy bears and gummy worms.
We bought a huge bag yesterday, hehe.

It's unbelievable how much you can learn by visiting different countries. Some of the places I've been wanting to go forever are: Prague, Glasgow, New York.

1.- State who tagged you.
2.- State 10 things you love.
3.- Tag ten friends at the end of the post and notify them through a comment.

I want to tag:

Hope you are all having a nice day! ;D

Aww thanks for tagging me Miki! Your answers are so sweet and I think mine will match up with a few of yours too. Glad you are enjoying married life so much. I am going to send you a little happy marriage parcel soon. Do you fancy doing a bit of a swap too? crafty stuff, care package or clothes if you wish, nothing pricey.

I don't understand how in Bs As anyone would go to starfucks and pay +14 pesos for a (plastic) cup of coffee when we have hundreds of original, cheaper bares! I'm totally with you on that one

I love those Converse! They're so cool! I bet they'd look insane with black jeans. I also love non-chain restaurants! I like the idea of a family owned business....
