#5: spring in the air?

First I want to give a huge shout out to the invention that is flat white. My neighbourhood is full of choice for great coffee, and every day there is a new bakery or cafe opening up, so very tempting. I can’t seem to get enough of almond croissants or cinnamon buns. It’s terrible when I am also trying to step it up in the gym. But, as with everything, balance is key.

What is it though with coffee shots that we love so much? Instagram seems to never get enough of them. Honestly my cup always looks grubby, lipstick marks and spills… I’m not one for a polished coffee shot. The coffee is there to drink & enjoy - fresh!! 

Introducing yellow into my very monochrome wardrobe. There is personal style, then there is trend. I suggest 75% of your wardrobe should contain your essentials - your staple items - and in my opinion because these are the pieces you’ll wear the most you should invest. Go for quality over quantity, at least most of the time. If you go for classic, understated and tailored looks you will always have something to wear, even on bad days! When it comes to the trend pieces, go high street. Because these are the items you might not keep beyond the season. I know, it’s terrible. But are you really going to carry that seagrass basket into Winter?

My best find on the high street this week was my new £34.99 blouse from H&M and powder pink suede flats from Mango at £19.99 (sale).

I admit, it was unnecessary indeed - but after posting the blouse on my stories the amount of people cheering me on to go back and buy it; it just had to be done. The good thing is the very low risk - these items slot straight into my wardrobe and will get a lot of use. 

This weeks beauty buy; Benefit Hydrating Concealer. it looks like a lipgloss, give your area of concern a quick swipe with the magic stick, and voila - it smoothes, hydrates and covers. £17.50.

To end this blogpost with a bang, I’d like to show you something SEXY! On Saturday my dear husband took me to Sexy Fish and it did not disappoint. It was buzzing, swanky and the music was cool, the service was great. Most importantly the food was amazing, all our plates were empty and our bellies were full! We tried 7 different little dishes, so too much to mention - but I don’t think you can go wrong with any choice. Always book, ask for a booth for comfort.
