LE PAIN QUOTIDEN






Dress - Motel Rocks*
Bag - Vivistyle
Sandals - River Island
Necklace - Small silver shop on holiday

I have had this dress for a little while, its from Motel Rock's Vintage selection, I couldn't wear it a few weeks ago because the weather wasn't up to scratch but I saw it in my wardrobe and snatched it out as it was so hot this day!
The fall and flow of the skirt of this dress is absolutely beautiful, I had so many compliments on the day, I felt so feminine and pretty in it, thats always good!





I had wanted to try out Le Pain Quotiden for ages, I always see it dotted around London when I'm out and about - I used to think it was just for bread and then I realised they serve you all types food! (doh) I went for a lentil avocado salad with added smoked salmon and my mum and Jason went for the eggs with mushrooms on bread and they said it was lovely

Mine was also very good, super healthy and I'm glad I added the salmon for extra flavour. On the table they leave scattered rapeseed oil and balsamic vinegar etc so you can add as much flavour as you like...which I like!




At the front of the restaurant they sell loaves of freshly baked bread, pastries, cakes and the like - It's all very tempting! They also do a smashing coffee and the teacups they come out with are traditionally French, big and comforting to hold (I have a strange thing for mugs and cups!).
 

It was a lovely little lunch and I recommend it if you like something quite healthy or a cooked meal that still has a home-touch feel to it in the middle of London. Not always easy to find!

Lunchtime With Depop



Despite the fact someone was with me while this photo was taken, I was going to say that my lunchtimes usually consist of me on my onesies, taking a break from editing, filming or whatever else I'm doing - Having some food and catching up on my social media or browsing around my phone for a bit.

I just can't help myself, I always think that I should read or something (and sometimes I do!) but my phone is so damn addictive!
 


The first meal there was from a lunch in LEON, I had the Ham hock salad which was too good for words and then I often stop by The Elgin in Maida Vale and this time I had a chicken, lentil & broccoli salad which was also yummy. I often also grab a croissant because they are my total weakness.

Back to my phone and things, I like to watch Youtube videos with my lunch or go through my apps. I have been loving depop recently and wanted to take a moment to talk about it a little more!




You are most probably aware of Depop, Its taken bloggers...and the world...by storm! Its set out a little like instagram except what you are scrolling through is items that people are selling and you can purchase them through the app with a few clicks, through Paypal. Its so quick and easy!

It is also super easy to set up (I'm quite stubborn with setting up new things and filling out forms) I was pleasantly surprised.  Again, I'm sure you know of it but if not, check out mine if you like! Its under 'Beautycrush' and every now and then I pop a few more things up onto my account.

I also Love that brands have accounts too. Some of my favourite online stores sell items on Depop and you can often nab one-off items - Handy!

I am still working on another 'Weekly Eats' post so this is a little peek into some more things i've been eating but we all love a good app and so I thought I would share more about what I do during my third favourite meal of the day...app included!

A thank you to Depop for kindly sponsoring this post =]

SHOREDITCH SUMMER






Top - Bershka
Skirt - MotelRocks (In White)
Pumps - Topshop
Bag - Vivistyle
Glasses - Ray Ban Clubmasters

The other week I was strolling around the Shoreditch area, it was that strange English 'in-between' heat so I went for a lightweight jumper and one of my favourite skirts. This skirt isn't on the website anymore but I found it in white on there! Its such a lovely material and I find it really flattering.

We ate at Cottons in BoxPark (Yummy caribbean food) and afterwards walked it off and did a little shopping, after taking in all of the street art. I love how artsy East London is!

The Lace Skirt




Jumper - Monki (Very Similar)
Under-shorts - Shop in Melbourne
Bag - Vivistyle
Pumps - Topshop
Lips - MAC All fired up

I am in love with this skirt, I picked it out from Urban Outfitter's website and as soon as I received it I couldn't wait to style it. I wore it out for a coffee with LilyPebbles last week and because of the added jumper it had me covered for the unpredictable weather.

It's see-through (obviously) so I popped on some white shorts I had from my trip to Oz. I'd suggest something nude or white underneath, its not actually too difficult to work with!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
