London in Summer

This time last year I was 3 weeks into an internship at LOOK magazine, in London. I stayed in London for 5 weeks in total and even though I was working 9-5 I loved using my weekends to explore. I’m really lucky that my sister lives in London so in my opinion I get to see ‘Londoners London’ rather than ‘Tourist London’. Fair enough maybe some of the things on my list are slightly touristy but hey it’s what I love about London!! Just a heads up all of my favourite things involve food and drink…..

 

#Borough Market – This is my favourite place in London. If you have never been, it’s definitely worth a visit. They have great lunch stalls where you can grab a bite to eat while you wander round all the stalls displaying amazing looking food. Last time I went I had an amazing lunch of falafel and then wandered round, bought punnets of berries, stopped for a brilliant pint of cider and then grabbed some cakes and pastries to head home with. There is so much more than this though there is champagne, fresh fish, fresh smoothies, the biggest watermelons I’ve ever seen, the best duck wraps with home-made plum sauce, brilliant coffee and amazing baklava! If you love food this should definitely be on your list of things to do. The full market is open Wednesdays to Saturdays.

#Evening Picnics in the Parks – One of my favourite nights in London last summer was when me and my sister grabbed some bits and bobs and some sparkling wine after work, and headed to Regents Park for a picnic. We weren’t alone with our idea but that just created a lovely atmosphere. There were people on pedalos and champagne bottles were popping all around us. It was such a lovely way to wind down in the sun, after a long day of working.

#Getting Ice-Cream from Amorino and Walking Through the Streets and parks of Chelsea – Have you ever noticed the streets in Chelsea are full of colourful houses and pretty gardens? Everything you think London is dissappears as you are faced with beautiful,idilic, colourful houses. However let’s get back to the food side of things. I discovered Amorino whilst I was in Paris 3 years ago, they are the brand that sculpt your ice-cream into a rose (if you have ever seen photos of that on Instagram). They basically create the prettiest ice-cream cone you’ll ever see. I would say it’s too pretty to eat but it tastes too good not to eat. My favourite flavours are amaretto and cherry but they have so many wonderful flavours I am yet to taste them all. Heads up, they also have stores in Soho, Covent Gardens and Islington!

I think these 3 things are my favourite things I have done in London during the summer months however I am sure there is a lot more to do I mean I haven’t even mentioned the endless amount of beer gardens, how much I love the chaos that comes with London, the pedalos, parks, shopping, cocktails and everything else that comes with such a diverse exciting city!

Can you tell I love London just a bit?

Oh So Casual

I was hoping to post some of my new ASOS goodies that I got in the post at the weekend, but the rain has been ridiculous so, unless I was willing to get soaked new photos were not an option! Surely this weather is not just annoying me? I mean, I expect some rain it is Scotland but this level is getting a little ridiculous.

Luckily, I remembered I had never posted this casual look that I wore when travelling to Tenerife a few months ago. The top I am wearing is from H&M. I love how the unfinished effect it has. I don’t know about you but I never know what to wear when travelling do you dress for the country you are going to or do you dress for the country you are leaving? Anyway travelling to and from Tenerife this summer I wore my ZARA jeans a simple t-shirt and my checked shirt, a great casual look. My jeans really comfy and I thought if I layer with my checked shirt then I can take it off once I arrive at my destination which, I am 100% sure will be warmer than Scotland.

In terms of my hair style, this is my go-to hair style on holiday. My hair isn’t long enough to have a pony-tail so, in order to get it out my face in the heat this is my chosen style. I have to admit this is also my chosen style for hanging about the house, whenever I can’t be bothered and well, the majority of the time haha.

I am trying so hard at the moment to stick to some sort of schedule for my blog! I am currently working to; an outfit post every Tuesday, a lifestyle post every Thursday and a wishlist every Sunday. Give me a follow if you want to keep up with all these posts.

I think this is the quickest photo shoot I have ever done. As I was getting ready to take these, in true Scottish style it turned from glorious sunshine to rain within seconds. I really wanted to shoot this so it became a challenge to get as many photos done before the rain got too heavy, such a nightmare Anyway, this outfit is made up of all my favourite things that I currently have in my wardrobe. I could never make my mind up about double denim but since I bought my denim jacket its a must and I love the look. This ZARA denim jacket is such a bargain at £29.99 and the skirt is now in the ZARA sale so definitely a bargain. A stripey top to me is a key wardrobe piece and I have about 5. Finally, the accessories are the accessories I wear nearly every day, my Topshop boots, my ASOS belt and my Larson and Jennings watch.

Focusing quite a lot on my blog and social media platforms at the moment, while I have time to spare. I have begun to notice Instagram photo opportunities more often now but I still get that moment when I’m like ‘oh I wish I had taken a photo of that’ and the frustration kicks in, does anyone else get that?

Anyway, with all my social media sites being more active than ever before I would love if you could check out my social media and give me a follow.

I have just moved out of my university flat and back into my room and it’s an absolute disaster. My room at home isn’t exactly big and neither was my one at university but trying to fit everything from both rooms into one just isn’t working and I have come to realise that I have so much junk that I don’t like or need. So, instead of being proactive and sorting it all out I just spend my days looking a Pinterest bedrooms that look like heaven, and create home wishlists of pretty stuff that I would buy to replace the junk. I can’t wait to move somewhere new so it’s a blank canvas and I can kit my room out to my style now. So there is my home wish list, very simple but so cute.

What do you think?
