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!

A Little Home Decor


Not too long ago I was browsing around Westfield with Jason and we stumbled across Zara home. I've been to a few of the stores before but hadn't been inside since we moved house in february and the 'Sale' signs incited us inside.....'Shall we?...'

I picked up a few bits and bobs, these two glass jars I thought were gorgeous and I had to get a big AND a little one.
I also always love the smell inside the Zara home stores and since the candles were on sale I nabbed the amber one (Its so delightful burnt inside the flat!)
I also have quite a thing for mugs and cups and this little teacup & saucer were also on sale, I couldn't resist.




So I also picked up some cute elephant doorknobs, Jason really loved this globe (he has quite the thing for globes) and we both marvelled at this NEON gorilla. It defiantly will be a talking-point within the flat, its hilarious and so bright, I've named him Caesar.

Also, Here is a photo of Riley looking rather dapper

We bought this little bow-tie from a shop just outside Westfield called Purple Bone, They had lots of cute bits but this especially caught my eye!


Hope you liked this little home-haul!

Lunch at The Elgin










Top - Zara (similar)
Jeans - Topshop Joni
Kimono - River Island (White lace kimono kind of similar)
Bag - Vivistyle
Flats - Topshop

It was a drizzly day in London, I needed to walk the dog and was also feeling a little peckish. My sister Danny (She's on youtube here) had just come back from her holiday in Kos and I hadn't seen her since being in israel so we planned to meet at a cool pub-turned-cafe/coffee house in Maida Vale called The Elgin.

I had walked past this place over a dozen times and always had a little peek in but hadn't actually gone in and sat down. What a little treasure! They allow dogs which means major brownie points from me! Its so hard to find places in London that allow dogs - They are really friendly, the food and coffee is delicious and the vibe of the place is really chilled out and comfortable.

We sat and chatted about our trips away and what the countries were like, laughed about old jokes and tried to keep Riley from jumping on the sofas. (He tried and failed a few times, always involving falling over)

Luckily I chucked a jumper in my bag because it was supposed to rain that day and indeed it pissed it down! But it was lovely nevertheless!

*A little heart to heart*
I especially enjoyed popping out that day because sometimes with what I do (blogging and youtubing full time) it can be quite lonesome. Jason works during the day Mon-fri and I have worked from home for years now and I do actually love being on my own a lot of the time, then again sometimes it can be hard with no one to talk to and no one to work with.
I can get stuck in a cycle sometimes of being on my own and not even wanting to go out much when really I should and I can get myself a little down in the dumps thinking about how I need to get my work done but then also feeling quite alone!
I am pushing myself to do more of my work out of the house and to go and meet people more which always cheers me up a little and I even tend to get more done! Meeting Danny was lovely & we always have a right laugh.
I just felt like having a little heart to heart as I don't usually share alot of my more in-depth feelings here on my blog but these feeling really went along with this post.
If you work from home and sometimes also have these feelings you are not alone!
