Food Stories






{ all photos by Food Stories }

I can't believe its end of July already, where did the time go? 
With more than 6 months of the year gone, how is that New Year Resolution coming along for you? I think I am on good progress, on the travel side I have taken at least a holiday a month, have hosted a few girls get-togethers and more brunch/afternoon tea in the diary, been going to the spa for massages and skin treatments quite regularly and in the last 6 weeks really focused on the exercise side (I recommend Jillian Michaels workouts!) and is noticing a difference in my fitness levels.

So that leaves two things remaining, reading more books, as I have only read 2 so far this year there is definitely lots of catching up to do! Also, eating more healthy which I have been doing at work (that means mostly salads at lunch) but now I want to cook more and using healthy whole foods. The internet is a wonderful place with full of ideas on the healthy eating, whole foods front. I am currently obsessed with a few Berlin based blogs. Food Stories being my favourite with their gorgeous photos (helps with the incentive to cook), clear instructions and wonder recipes. They have many non-sweet recipes up too but I have a major sweet tooth which is reflected in my images choices! 

Enjoy rest of your weekends xxx

The Chilly Springtime


{images via Style Du Monde}

I don't know about you, but I am particularly sensitive to the cold air, early Spring days are the period where I can dress dramatically differently one day to the next (all depends on if the sun is out or not!)

I also feel guilty hiding behind the thick winter coats since the flowers are clearly signalling spring is well underway. I have tried to pull together 3 different looks, should cover you in the most "chilles" of Spring days to when the sun is shining so warm and brightly you want to go bare legs...

Look 1- for days you think winter is back 
wear your warm long coat but put away the skinny jeans tucked into long boots, instead try wide leg trousers and vintage white trainers



Look 2 - for days where its semi-cloudy but warm
dig out that perfect spring light coat or wool jacket, wear a thin sweater underneath
pair with slighted cropped trousers & smart slippers




Look 3 - for days where the sun is beaming above
this is the first chance in the year to go bare legs, but wear ankle boots not sandals,
wear your long sweater dress, leather wrap skirt optional for that pop of colour,
don't forget to take a warm wrap as when the sun sets it will get colder

I am totally in love with this new florist a friend recommended, they delivery by bike & attribute profit to charitable organisations, on top of that,
their bouquets are out-of-this-world beautiful & refreshing
you can tell that the owner put real thoughts and creativity into creating these lovely bouquets
say good bye to the boring roses or tulips only bouquets!

More Strawberries, More Champagne

A little late but a Happy 2015 to all dear readers
Have you all started your New Year's Resolutions?
In case you still need ideas, here is my list...

It all evolves around the central concept of "Bettering Myself & Be Happy"

1. Host more girls get-togethers, whether thats in the form of afternoon teas or the occasional glass of Champagne, bottom line - Friends are important, spend more time with them



2. Read more inspirational books (and watch less entertainment TV) - Reading will help you to expand on your understanding of everything



3. Eat and cook more healthily - Good health should be the top priory



4. Travel more - See more of what the world has to offer



5. Spend more hours at the Spa - Pampering & de-stress are beneficial to both the body and the soul


Did any of the above make your list too?

Little Things of Joy



I agree with Brigadeiro 
macaroons, flowers, candles, red shoes & fresh juices are my top little things of Joy too
especially when they have been displayed so beautifully!

FYI, in case you are looking for the shoes, you can find them here

{London} Polpetto



{ photo by me - Polpetto Berwick Street }

it took a good few minutes to decide whether this post should sit under Interior Decor or Food
not because the food was not worthy of its own mention
(quite the opposite, they were small plates of utter deliciousness)
but because the decor & atmosphere was just so unique 
the long leather banquette, the vintage glass lamp shades, the shabby chic walls
not to mention the embossed metal panels on the ceiling
if vintage or originality is your cup of tea
then Polpetto will be your little place of utopia 
service was friendly, attentive but easy going

back to the food 
everything I tried was just so tasty, full of favours yet not overpowering
the right balance between hearty yet not too heavy

to sum up in 3 words
delicious, delightful & unpretentious 
hence permanently marked as one of my favourite spots in the London dining scene

{Fashion Blogger}: Olivia


{ photos via Olivialsr }

I am obsessed with this girl
her style is clean, simple and oozes of modern chic that looks so effortless

Winter can be a hard season to dress for, 
not to mention the added difficulty of what to pack for a holiday
but Olivia makes it look so easy on her recent trip to the Scottish Highlands,
who knew oversized coats teamed up with a pair of Nike trainers can look so elegant?
I will be supporting this look in the coming cold months for sure
