It’s fashion show time! Check out these embellished beauties from Kurt Geiger. Currently fighting the urge to stroke them….
Never one to pass up an opportunity, I jumped at the chance of taking a Bobbi Brown free make-up tutorial at Selfridges on Oxford Street. I opted for a smokey eye because I’d never have the confidence to do something as crazy as this myself for fear of looking overdone. Loved the result, even if I did look a little silly taking the tube home in broad daylight. The girl was really kind and helpful, here’s what she used:
If you’re around in London, I’d recommend popping by. They’re offering all kind of make-up sessions, book-in early to avoid disappointment!
Sloane Square is one of those very pretty parts of London where people like to go and pretend they have loads of money. I have to admit the cafes and restaurants in the area are strikingly elegant. Tucked away behind the designer shops and streams of well dressed tourists, towards Pimlico, there’s this great place called Daylesford. If The White Company did restaurants, this is what they would look like; very white, very clean, very crisp. Daylesford is the home of yummy mummies and elegant middle-aged couples who sit together reading the newspaper. How very civilised. The food is jolly good, especially my favourite eggs Benedict and the prices aren’t too bad at all, considering the crowd and location…or maybe I’m just becoming a bit too used to London prices? Either way, this one gets a well-deserved 6/10 from me.
Ok, so, you can’t beat French crêpes in Bretagne but certain establishments in London do a pretty good job at trying. I can’t believe that I have been working a 100 yards away from this place for the past 8 months and it has, until this day, remained undiscovered.
Well, admittedly, I always knew it was there I probably didn’t want to discover it for fear that I will fall in love and eat crêpes every day and get fat. Anyway, feeling uninspired by my usual eateries and somewhat ravenous, I gave it a shot. My eyes were greeted with a crêpe the size of my head full of lashing of cheese and spinach and mushrooms (I opted for the ‘veggie’).
As the French say, bon, bref, it was delicious, even if I am currently trying to crawl my way out of cheese coma as I (struggle to) write this so don’t expect to be productive afterwards.
Oh, and I forgot to mention that they make it fresh in front of you too. Il faut y aller!
Dress down Friday! Admittedly, almost every day is dress down Friday at my work but somehow, with heavy eyes and a tired mind, Fridays always leave me longing for comfy jeans and converse. Today I’m wearing cropped jeans and converse, as standard, paired with a Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply tank top and Christian Lacroix beaded cardigan courtesy of my very glamorous Auntie. LOVE hand-me-downs! Oh and I completed my look with wet hair, no make-up and a coffee. Luckily I’m going for a Bobbi Brown smokey eyes make-up tutorial today so I shall be looking slightly sexier for my Friday night in with a good friend and colleague!
Waking up and smiling in the knowledge that it’s Saturday, chilling out on balconies, washing your sheets, indulging, getting drunk, dancing, feeling guilty for getting drunk, recovering, swearing to never drink again, making plans, reading, going for brunch, going for coffee, walking, going to the gym, chilling in the back garden, food shopping, clothes shopping, window shopping, buying flowers, baking, holding a dinner party, having a BBQ, inviting your friends round, rearranging your room and your life… the list is endless but the possibilities are awesome. Never ever have I appreciated weekends more since joining the big scary world of work.
