We're back :)

HELLO EVERYONE! I'm back after over a months absence, and I'm so glad to finally be able to post something. It's been such a crazy month one way and another.. I hope you all had a great New Years, and a good start to the year. 

Lately I've been feeling super restless. I'd love to go travelling again this summer (most of you probably remember my holiday photos from last summer which was so fun omg) but when I was thinking about holiday plans I realised that even though I absolutely loved everywhere I went last year, I really want to go somewhere different. Having said that, I'd love to go back to New York, because it was just unbelievably amazing. But, money wise, I think I'm going to have to stay a little closer to home, which I really don't mind at all. There's such a variety of culture within Europe itself. If any of you have any suggestions of great holiday destinations which aren't too touristy or resort-y, let me know :) 

Love you all so much xxx

Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium

So it's fair to say that our love for cats hasn't really been kept much of a secret. Because of this, we thought it was only fitting to head down to Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium in the heart of East London. The concept isn't something entirely new, it's basically a regular cafe (which serves really nice food by the way) with the addition of about ten cats just running about, and a hoard of cat toys and climbing frames all around the walls. It was quite possibly the cutest thing I've ever seen. For anyone visiting London, its would make such a nice stop-off - it would fit it really well with a trip around Old Spitalfields market and a wander round Brick Lane.

I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas

FYI: I can't play the piano to save my life - this was my rendition of 'Chopsticks'...

I firstly would like to apologies for my ridiculously long absence, and assure that I have not in the least forgotten about you. I know I say this a lot but I have been insanely busy these last few weeks at school, and by the end of the term I was sort of running on empty. I actually remember sitting next to one of my best friends in a maths class and fretting to her about how I was worried my bodily functions were going to shut down one by one. Thankfully for all of us, the Christmas break has come and maybe I can even fit in some blog posts (that'll make a nice change). Some new motivation is that I actually just bought a new camera, which is a tad snazzier than the old faithful. I'm still very much getting to grips with it but you should (fingers crossed) be noticing an increase in photo quality soon. Merry Christmas all you wonderful people, have a good one xxx

Mini Autumn Lush Haul

It's the time of year again when Lush bring in all their autumn/winter stock, (which is my fave), so I decided to pop by quickly and pick up some things. I didn't go too crazy, but I thought I'd take some pictures of what I got anyway, partly due to the how photogenic a bag full of bath bombs can be. 

The first thing I picked up was Candy Mountain Bubble Bar which is a bit of a cult favourite - it smells like Snow Fairy shower gel, which I personally really like, though I know others find it a touch over powering. I love the sweetness of it. Oh and it's pink (bonusssss). I also wanted to try the Luxury Lush Pud Bath Ballistic. I haven't actually used this one yet but it smells amazing. It's also got a really sweet scent, and the word on the street it that it turns the water different colours which really excites the child in me. I all got the So White Bath Ballistic which smells kind of like Apple Cider, which is a really nice, warm and comforting, but refreshing at the same time. They've also changed the formula so that it turns the bath water pink, instead of being colourless like it used to be. Dashing Santa had to make a reappearance, as did Star Light, Star Bright Luxury Bath Melt because, let's face it, I can't resist sparkly things.

The Horizon Tries But it's Just Not As Kind On The Eyes

Being an inhabitant of central-ish London, greenery can seem a somewhat foreign concept. It's so nice to get away from the concrete sometimes, as much as the city dweller in me hates to admit. I often forget that there are green spaces in London. It's actually really nice first thing in the morning to visit a local park or nature reserve, whether it be for a brisk jog (not likely) or for Sunday brunch (that's more like it).

I also need to talk about my brand new Topshop Mom Jeans. Those who have been reading for a long time will know (or will have come to realise through sheer obviousness) that I hate jeans. Or, most jeans. I've got quite a bottom-heavy figure which I don't love, but I've kind of learned to work with. I know that body-con or skater silhouettes which hit about mid-thigh tend to work the best, as do skirts and dresses which highlight my waist. Jeans, however, have never really incorporated themselves into that library. Mom jeans, in particular, I've considered a bit of a no-no, ever since they remerged as a 'thing' last year or so. But after seeing them on so many people I thought I owed it to myself to at least try some on. I decided to buy them on two grounds: 1) They're actually surprisingly flattering (thanks, Topshop high-waisted section) and 2) I've kind of decided to give up caring how wide my hips look.
