gloucester road // fox + feather.



Last week, I finally made it up to the Fox+Feather shop, after they tweeted me recently. I was supposed to go up for their open evening thingy, but couldn't make it. They very kindly saved me a goodie bag, and said to pop up any time! Gloucester Road is quite a walk from my house, but it was a sunny day, and I decided to make a whole afternoon of it.

If you're not familiar with Bristol, you won't know that this area is full of art. Everywhere you look, there's something awesome to see! Graffiti, brightly painted buildings, interesting shops... it's definitely worth a visit.






The Fox+Feather shop was so so cute! The windows were beautifully done, and the displays inside were so pleasing to the eye - there's clearly a lot of attention to detail! So many pretty things, I could've spent a lot of time and money in there! Unfortunately I currently don't have much of either..

You can also shop online, if you don't live in/near Bristol!
















The sun was starting to go down as I left, so I trotted back down into the city centre, admiring all the graffiti I missed on the way up! 








I had a few minutes to myself, so I rummaged in the ridiculously generous goodie bag, and immediately put this scarf on my head! I love it, and it kept my ears nice and warm :) then I had a meeting about our Christmas Tea Party! Any meeting that involves a hot chocolate and cookies & cream cupcakes at The Birdcage is a meeting I want to be involved in! 

Such a good day! I walked home completely on a high!

  17. I've just stumbled across your blog and, scrolling down and already thinking "I love it!" I saw the photos of Gloucester Road and now I'm even more enamoured with it - I live here! I'm pretty new to Bristol and excited to see another (and much more well-established than myself) blogger in this beautiful city!
