Veni Vidi Vici

With the help of a special friend from down under, and yes that means Australia, these wonderful photographs were in fact able to be taken! My Aussie companion and I took on Newbury street this afternoon, well armed with our favorite Starbucks drinks, in order to take on the brisk 30 degrees weather. The common latin term, Veni Vidi Vici, best describes this adventure filled day. This term means "we came, we saw, we conquered"; or in this case, we window browsed, we enjoyed the Christmas tree lights, and we conquered the shops.  My mate and I were able to stop into the Marc Jacobs store and nonetheless we were more than satisfied when we came across this adorable pom pom black beanie hat. The pom pom was too cute, we just couldn't resist and before I knew it, I had made a cash contribution to the store! I was also lucky enough to come across this wonderful book called Grace, a Memoir, written by Vogue's current creative director, and former model. I've been told it's a must read and am quite interested to break it open considering Grace Coddington is one of the most influential, successful and creative figures in the industry. 
What a wonderful day, a wonderful thanksgiving and a wonderful holiday break, much to be thankful for!
