Bocca Di Lupo, London

{ photo by me }

Tucked away a quiet street in Soho,
this boutique restaurant is the the perfect place to sample delicious dishes from all regions of Italy
fancy the shaved radish with celeriac and pecorino from Umbria
or the roast poussin with the panzanella salad from Tuscan?
the choice is hard but can be made easier by sharing dishes with a group of friends
Just make sure you end the meal with a plate of tasty  chestnut and pistachio gelatos

The atmosphere is also lively and buzzing 
overall a very enjoyable Sunday lunch

The Long Summer Dress

{via the}

This look is perfect for the inner rock chick that lives in all of us
choose a short sleeve long dress in a deep colour (stay clear of pastel colours)
throw on a pair of ankle boots
borrow your boyfriend or dad's watch
add a small cross body bag
and there you have it, looking gorgeous is that simple

Pudding for Your Skin

{ photos by me, recipe via InStyle Magazine}

Must be a typo you say? How can dessert be good for your skin you say? 
No I am not trying to label an all green smoothie as dessert
this is the real deal but on a healthy scale

 this receipt is so easy anyone and I do mean anyone can make it

Line a small bowl with fresh Raspberries (full of vitamin C)
Fill the bowl with Coconut Milk (rich in fibre)
Sprinkle a tablespoon of Chia seeds ideally (high in omega-3 fats)
ok I cheated I used Flax seeds, try to find Chia seeds as they will turn the milk into jelly
Chill in the fridge for 30mins and voila!
A perfect light pudding for summer that is also a treat for your skin

Modern mixed with Mid-Century

This stunning home belongs to Joshua Bariuan, I love the use of dark coloured wood mixed with crisp white walls and furniture. Also how cute is that sphere shelf in the bathroom? It goes perfectly well with the square clock next to it, creating an interesting contrast of colour and shape.

{Weekly Lookbook}: White, Blue, Black + White

{ via Le-21eme }

Apologies for the un-inspirational title, 
you must think I am so illiterate I can only spell colours,
while that is not too far from the truth, 
I was trying to create a more vivid image through the title,
clearly failed, let's just focus on the image

I am noting this look down in my "key looks for the season" folder
Start with a 3/4 or 7/8 sleeve white top or jumper
pair with a mid-length blue skirt, ideally made from a textured fabric
finally throw on a pair of black shoes with white soles

I have my eyes on these EYTYS alternatives which I think are so versatile not too mention comfy hitting the casual trainer look spot on
