Red, white and blue fever has hit the streets, shops, imaginations and media like an old fashioned april shower. The Queen's diamond Jubilee is days away and I am more excited then ever! There is so much going this weekend, i can't wait for week to be over and celebrate! My grandparents live in Malta (which is still ruled by Britain) and posted this photo on their facebook yesterday (yes my grandparents have facebook :D) from their roof terrace:

Malta is such an amazing country, im planning a runaway trip this September. But they aren't the only ones to catch onto the 'british' fever thats taking over. After my granddad posted the photo on FB, we decided to hang our own bunting in our back garden to get to the spirit!

Ignore all the trash in the garden! we had been gardening and had yet to tidy up before i took the photo :) You my remember by birthday post, where i admitted my inner royalist and history obbession. It was all fed thanks to my family and friends that brought me a small collection of royal goodies (including Prince William and Princess Katherine barbie dolls!!!) you can read it again here. 

But this summer it is the high street's version of patriotic that's feeling me with excitement. Next are exclusively selling Olympic scarfs,as well as Team GB memorabilia. Everywhere has taken it apon themselves to be selling union jack, bikini's and swimwear; and every cake across the country is iced red, white and blue.

These are my picks of the high streets 'BRITISH' clothing (all are available online):





This is just a selection that i have chosen. But visit any of your favorite sites and search 'flag' 'jack flag' 'union' you will get a good list of everything they have on offer.

How are you celebrating the Queen's jubilee? Sunday i will be at the 'party in the park' at my local park, which is huge festival with loads going on, music, stalls, games, and a huge skate competion. Monday i'll be london!! there is an The Queen and Art exhibition at the national portrait gallery which i will give a good look around, plus all the great parks in london are having big screens showing live coverage of the Jubilee concert, thats being held Monday evening. if you in london and see me come say hi!

sweet dreams!
