Things I Loved In June

1) The Killing or Forbrydelsen, as it is called in Denmark. I could not have loved this show more ~ it is all kinds of wonderful. I used to do a happy dance when the next dvd arrived from LoveFilm.




If you haven't heard of it, it is a danish crime show. The Danish version follows detective Sarah Lund, as she investigates the murder of Nanna Birk Larsan. Sarah is now one of my all time favourite TV characters. She's absolutely obsessive about her case, in a kind of lone gunman of the wild west way. 


She will not stop till she gets her man (or woman!)


 Plus I love her jumpers. 




I need to borrow a Granny to make me one



2) How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff ~ huh what's that you say? You read my 2011 Faves list, you know I love this book to distraction? I should just write a review already? I am trying, but it's so hard to write it. I may have to resort to a list of love.


3) Wimbledon ~ yay for tennis and strawberries at SW1. And oh my gosh there might be a Brit in the final. Finger tightly crossed.


4) New Shoes ~ I usually spend my summer in flip flops, but I couldn't resist these. They're from CLARKS! For those of you unfamiliar with the store, it's where generations of british school children have been dragged for foot measuring and new shoes. Apparently while I've been overseas they have stepped up their game and moved beyond shiny patent shoes with buckles.






5) Sour Wine Gums ~ I love winegums and new sour winegums rule.

  2. While I didn't buy, I did spend too much time wandering around Clarks in London last time I was there. Super cute shoes!
