London Day

IMG_1020 IMG_1022 IMG_1023  IMG_1024

A few weeks ago Lauren and I went on a girl’s day out around London which was long overdue. When Travelex challenged us to see how far $160 (about £100) would go in London, we gladly accepted and thought it best we do it together – always better with friends!

We wanted to make the day as stereotypically London as possible {or what people think every day in London is, this is not my day-to-day norm, sadly}. We started off with brunch at Thomas’s at Burberry. We ate brunch amongst the plaid scarves and trench coats and took way too many pictures of the food. Afterwards we decided to head to the National Gallery which is one of my favorite {and free!} museums in London. We finished off the day with a nice, calming massage {so necessary after walking around touristy Piccadilly Circus}!

A huge thanks to Travelex for the day out!

Pretty Things

Teeny tiny life update: I’m super busy which I love, but I do miss consistently blogging! Here are a few pictures from my camera roll lately:

01. A little corner of the bedroom that is my favorite because it has my favorite Acne Studios bag {from when I bought this scarf, which I wear everyday}. I also found that little geometric planter from Etsy for $14 and I love it.

02. My absolute faaaave beauty products right now that I found out about from the nicest girl that did my makeup when we were visiting L.A.: rose petal toner that will change your life {it’s only $7.99} and lotus oil that is perfect if you have combination skin. I use both of these every night and feel so luxurious afterwards.

03. Beautiful autumn flowers at Liberty where I splurged and finally got this. It smells SO good.

04. My favorite R13 tee at the moment that I purchased during Shopbop’s last big sale. It’s the perfect borrowed-from-the-boys-look tee and I’m wearing it all the time, with everything.

 A few snaps of life lately:
01. I’m loving my new crossbody that I found for a steal at Vestiaire Collective. Still one of my fave places to shop – all my best pieces in my wardrobe are from there! PS: Speaking of bags, there’s a huge 20% off classic bags sale here.
02. We had breakfast at No. 11 and the food was actually gross and cold but it still looked pretty.
03. I’ll never get tired of these cute little houses with pretty painted doors and perfectly manicured shrubs.
04. I’ve been using this dry oil and loving it – it’s the perfect way to enhance your tan. And it smells like the beach!
05. Loving off the shoulder tops and this one is super comfy.

Hope you’re having a great week!

May has been crazy busy: work, trading yoga for boot camp classes {so insane!}, and I’m randomly playing violin in a rock band – what? A quick weekend trip to Lille, France has been the highlight and I can’t wait to share more trip photos with you soon!

A few little snapshots of May:

01. Walking around Belsize park and this gorgeous wisteria caught my eye.
02. A beautiful homemade Peter Rabbit cake for a beautiful baby shower.
03. Loving my Bumble & bumble Surf Hair goodies. This stuff gives my crazy curls a perfectly messy look – I’m obsessed {and all of these products smell like the beach}!
04. A sneak peek from a long weekend trip to Lille {also a peek here!} A full post to come. {P.S. I’m wearing an Iro jacket and my trusty Rag & Bone Newbury boots.}
05. + 06. Tom’s Kitchen is my new favorite place for breakfast – their Brioche French toast with caramlized apples is YUM!

Hope you’re having a great week!

Chiltern Firehouse

Over the weekend I went to Chiltern Firehouse with some gal pals – good food with amazing service – made complete with cocktails and bathroom selfies, of course. The cornbread fingers are pictured {they are served with whipped maple syrup butter – YUM} and my American food cravings were completely satisfied. The outside patio area feels like a little Beverly Hills retreat in the middle of the city and it was the perfect place to relax and people watch. Already planning a trip back!
