I did some shopping recently and I felt the urge to share it with the world. It's a pretty small haul, with a total of 4 items, but hey, a haul is haul right? I have to say I love all of my pieces and I'm looking forward to wearing them! I've actually already worn the fluffy jacket A ton.
So here they are!
Shoes: Zara trf €49,95
Dress: Asos (on sale)
Nude coloured blouse: Zara €29,95
Fluffy Jacket: H&M €34,95 (I have it in baby pink)
The only sad thing is that the print on the dress is not symmetric around the boob area, it's a pity because the dress is gorgeous but it looks quite funny. Hope I'll work that out, maybe I'll just have to accept the fact that it looks a little different cause Hey, looking different isn't necessarily bad right?
I've been to London many times now, and everytime I find new amazing places to eat! So here are some restaurants you should definitely go to.
Since it's a chain restaurant you'll find it all over London. They have delicious pastas but the best thing I've tried are their bruschettas, these things taste like heaven! If you don't want to spend too much money and you like Italian food this is the place to be. For less than £15 You've eaten a main course + one drink. I know for sure they've one near Libery but here's a link to find every Bella Italia restaurant in London so you can choose the nearest one.
I would totally recommend this pub if you're craving a burger. Their burgers are just magnificent! I've ordered the Big Ben Burger twice and everytime I'm hungry I wish I was there eating it again! The Big Ben Burger is a burger with bacon, cheddar cheese, an omelette, tomatoes and lettuce. Just the best burger I've ever eaten in my life! They serve it with french fries, bbq sauce and crispy onions. I paid around £13 for the Burger + a Coke. You can find this pub on the corner of the Buckingham Palace road and Terminus Place (I guess that's how it's called) But it's just on the corner next to Victoria Station, so very easy to reach by the underground.
This is the place to be for food from all over the world! I've gone to the same stall twice and everytime I get a slight food orgasm, no lie!! It really looks like shit but damn it's freaking delicious. For only £5 you get a big bin with rice and noodles and all sorts of chicken!!
Pinkberry Frozen Yoghurt Selfridges
The Pinkberry frozen yoghurt in selfridges in better than heaven if you ask me! You can find it in the selfridges food hall ofcourse and I can tell you it's definitely worth going to. They've 4 to 5 different flavours and countless toppings. I would highly suggest taking the fruit as topping, since it's fresh and very tasty. After choosing the flavour and four toppings you can choose sauce. There's chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, honey (I think) and some more. The price is around £5 and soo worth it since it's healthier than ice cream but as delicious or even better!
Lola Cupcakes Selfridges
This is another place better than heaven in selfridges food hall! The cupcakes just look amazing and sure they are! You've sooo many that you'll stare at them forever wanting to eat them all! Sadly the budget and the belly wouldn't appreciate that, so at the end you'll have to choose. But I'm sure every choise is the best since they're all AMAZING! They're somewhat expensive though, but for what you get it's totally worth it!
( Don't worry, these are the small ones, you do have bigger ones and even HUGE ones!)
The Old Dutch Pancake house
This place was recommended to me by my friend lizzie who's also a blogger and lives in London. As the name suggests you can eat delicious pancakes with all sorts of toppings. You've sooo many options that again it's hard to choose. You've the regular pancakes, the butterscotch pancakes, gluten free ones etc. I've chosen the butterscotch wtih bananas, stawberries and chocolate sauce, you can imagine how that tasted like, yes, indeed, freaking amazing! I think we paid around £12 for this and a Coke. You've a restaurant on the King's Road, High Holborn and Kensington Church Street.
I hope this helped you people out! Enjoy the food and London of course.
I personally think H&M is a hit or miss, sometimes you come out with lots of stuff and sometimes you can't find anything you like. I've been browsing around on their site and found some amazing stuff! These are the things that ended up on my wishlist
Gorgeous Scuba Skirt: €39,95
Top that matches the skirt: €34,95
Black and White midi skirt: €49,95
Batman oversized shirt: €12,95
Lightwash jeans: €19,95
Suède shoes: €69,95
Yellow Bag: €14,95
I do have to admit H&M gone up in prices, but for the quality you get I'm still willing to pay that price. Look at all those gorgeous pieces! They're just so on trend and cool!
So my family and I decided to stop eating candy, crisps, chocolate and cookies for over a month. I know it's fast time right now, but it's actually kind of coincidence that we started together with the fasttime. Normally we stop eating 'bad' food before Chirstmas but this year we decided to do it after.
So What are we going to do?
Were're not going to eat any 'bad' things mostly candy, chocolate, crisps and cookies. So bad things you eat between your meals. Instead you can eat fruit, healthy mueslibars, nuts etc.
I've also decided not to drink any soda, only water and fruit juice is allowed.
And I'll try not to eat junk food which will be pretty hard since I live in a dorm, so I won't be too strict on that one. But I really want to complete the first two 'resolutions'.
Me and my dad came to an agreement that we can stop for one week in between the 40 days. We did this because my parents are going on holiday and everyone eats bad on holiday AND because the 27th of march is my Birthday, and who wants to eat an apple on their Birthday? I'm sure I don't!
So If you want to do this, you can do it with us! We can talk and nag about how difficult it is, and jump from joy when we have the 'break' within the 40 days! So who's in? Let me know via twitter, facebook or the comment section if you think this is a great start for a healthier life and if you want to take part!! This starts today, but you can start tomorrow if you want too! And it end on Easter (20th of April)
I'll be so proud of myself and you guys if we can do this! I love eating crisps, chocolate and cookies, so if I succeed not eating that for 40 days it will be a great accomplishment.
Okay, you probably all think I've won the lottery, and I can't even believe it myself, but I've bought another Mulberry! I know I've just purchased the Mulberry Bayswater Satchel around two months ago, but I couldn't leave this baby in store. For the record, sadly I haven't won the lottery.
I went to a store in Bruges, called Domenique Meire, where I knew they sold Mulberry. I was looking for the dome rivet continental wallet but they didn't stock that, meanwhile I saw a little 'sale' rack with Mulberry bags at the end of the store. And it was love at first sight! A gorgeous Mulberry Alexa for less than half price! I took a look at it, but than said no to myself! How could I justify purchasing two Mulberry handbags in 2 months? So I walked away with pain in my heart. A week later I was still thinking about the bag, and what a 'bargain' it is. You'll never find a half priced bag on their official site! So I went back and bought it! I have to admit to you girls that I'm totally not rich and that I'll have to save half of my working money every months till July to pay myself back, since I've borrowed the money from my own bank account, but hey, it was totally worth it. I do want to make clear I still save half of my working money every months for my 'future' life! I think it's very important if you like designer or just even shopping in general, that you still save a certain amount for the future. Because spending every cent is just not the way to go.
So here is my gorgeous baby
I don't know exactly which size it is, but I guess it's the regular 'medium' size. It has a gorgeous 'fur-y' look, but their is actually no fur going on, it's all in the leather, if you take a closer look, you can even see subtle sparkle in the leather (which you can see in the third picture below). This certain print is 'limited edition' according to the sale assistant.
The bag comes with a shoulder stap which I'll probably use most of the time. You can also carry it with the top handle, I do think it'll be hard to carry it in the crook of your arm since the top handle is quite small. And as you can see the Mulberry logo has been stamped in a lot of the hardware.
As you can see the bag closes with the postman's lock and two clasps. The interior is lined and the bag has two inside pockets, you have the main compartment, a zipper pocket and a little 'phone' pocket (picture above).
This bag is bigger than my Bayswater satchel so more like an everyday kind of bag, you can fit an umbrella, water bottle, small makeup bag etc. The last two pictures make the bag look a bit more yellow, but the pictures before that are a perfect resemblance of what the bag looks like! I absolutely adore this bag and will use it a lot! If I've used it for a couple of months I'll do a review on it telling you what I like and don't like about it. The sales assistant already told me this particular leather is very durable and doesn't need a lot of treatment in contrast with my bayswater satchel which is very vulnerable and needs a lot of care.
