Cute Shop – Nima

Last week I was on my way to a cafe to meet a friend when I came across the CUTEST little shop called Nima. I was drawn in by a window display that seemed to have the theme “all the things Charlotte would like”.

I loved how things weren’t so organised, just placed in every available space. Like these adorable books.

I very nearly bought these…in fact, I may have to go back and buy them…

I WANT IT ALL.

In the end, what I did buy was a map of the world with a layer of scratch away surface on it, and you have to scratch away countries that you’ve been to. I also bought two water glasses with funny fake branding for tap water on them.

If you have someone to buy a gift for I think this would be the perfect place to find a chic gift! The only downside is that the woman running it doesn’t seem to want to be friendly at all, and when I asked if I could take photos for my blog she was like “yeah, whatever”. I think if this was in England they’d love to know who is giving them free advertising…but anyway…

While I was in London I happened to take a new turn and found one of the oldest department stores in Britain – Liberty. I decided to brave this shop in the busiest shopping period of the year in order to get some presents for both my Grandmas and one of my sisters.

First stop – beauty. It’s really awesome because there are loads of signs explaining why the products are great.

Grandmas – SORTED. Even though it was packed, the staff still had the time to advise me which was nice.

Spent way too much time looking over all the different cards. One thing Germany can’t do is cards.

Onward to the home department…then through to the Christmas shop…

So many pretty sparkly things!! The head home buyer spends the whole year looking for the perfect collections – and it really shows.

LOVED these. If I thought I could take them home without ruining them, I would have bought them in a flash.

Look at this cheeky chappy!

There’s a fab new show on channel 4 about this very department store – and I’m addicted. I was in the shop before I saw the show, and there really is an amazing feeling about the place. It’s like magic.

Here’s an advert for the show. If you have access to UK tv (*cough*proxy*cough*) then go for it and have a look on the channel 4 website!
