Vacation or London?

One of my favourite things to do in my spare time is explore my hometown London. In such a big city, there's always so much to do and discover. Especially in the summer, the rooftop bars open and the street festivals begin, you will definitely find me stuffing my face with food. 

Being a blogger, I'm always on the hunt for new streets, cafes and fun locations to shoot. It's an opportunity to discover a new trendy place. Cute story, on my shoot with Mark, we went inside a little pub on Portobello Road Market (wish i noted down the name) because I had to change my outfit, thought nothing of it looked like a normal pub, red leather seats, a bar and a bit dark. After changing, I went back to meet Mark and found him at what didn't look like the pub anymore. At the back of the pub was indoor garden restaurant, that made you feel like you were Spain or Italy. Our natural instinct of course was to take pictures, luckily my outfit fitted the setting.

After seeing the secret garden inside the pub, we were inspired to find more fascinating locations within the area. That's when we stumbled upon the colourful mews and the old vintage shop, immediately felt like i was on holiday and not in London until I heard the sound of cars beeping again and the memorable phrase 'Please stand behind the yellow line'.

So if you're around Portobello road area, be sure to wander around and get lost because there are some cute independent coffee shops to eat in and fashionable vintage shops to get lost in.

Top 10 Sale Hacks

Let's face it, how is it possible to walk away from the big, bold, red sign with the white capitalised word that says "SALE" on it.  From the moment I wake up and my inbox is crying for me look at it full of those delicious emails, how can I not take a bite? ..... However, we don't all want to lose our  money all at once do we? I pride myself with being a bargain hunter, therefore I'm going to give you an inside on some tips on how to approach a sale.

Numero Uno: STAY CALM - No literally, we tend to pick up everything we see and rush, sometimes we don't end up seeing everything, and will miss out on a good sale. Take your time. do not rush. 

Numero Dos: Don't buy everything on the first day of sales, the price will always reduce, wait three/ five days into the sales.

Numero Tres: Look both online and in-store for the same shop, for example, zara their sale online will sometimes have items that are either sold out in store or are online exclusives.

Numero Cuatro: Go first thing in the morning! Everything is fresh, tidy, you can take your time before everything gets messy.

Numero Cinco: Do not 'panic buy' because everything is on promotion. Ask yourself these questions, do you really need it? Are you going to get much wear out of it? When are you going to wear it?

Numero Seis: Sometimes it's nice to go shopping with a friend, it helps having someone to remind you of that one item you came into the store for.

Numero Siete: To save you over spending, think about what you need and what you are looking to buy before going in to a shop.

Numero Ocho: Don't feel disappointed if you left with nothing, because it's better to buy something you ADORE rather than an item that was cheap.

Numero Nueve: Wear a backpack or a small cross body bag with the necessities only, phone, lip balm and purse! It's important to be hands-free when sale shopping, you don't want to be carrying heavy shoulder bags with you, they will only just weigh you down!

And Finally ........

Numero Dies: Take it easy and have fun!

What's your sale hacks?

Rips & Lace


How has your week been?

I finally have a day off, YES! So I decided to write a post for you lovelies. As I mentioned to you last week I've been working on some projects. Around a month ago, during easter I collaborated with Mark Castillo, whose a very talented, amazing photographer so much fun to work with! I can't wait to show you all the outfits we shot together in the upcoming posts. Here is one of the shoots! 

OMG! When I found out that Topshop Oxford Circus, have their own monogramming section I was head over heels. I love personalised things, whether it's a notebook, jacket or even a pen, I am a sucker for it! I feel that is a nice touch to have something that is unique and yours. 

'AS IF' get it? ;) Clueless if one of my favourite all time chic flicks, so why not monogram Cher's quote on your ass!! Also can we talk about how cool these jeans are!? Ripped hem's have been taking over, they are statement, edgy and whether you are a girly girl, rock chick or even just like the simple things, these jeans will suit all of you! So If you're around Topshop at Oxford Circus, grab yourself a pair of these jeans and personalise them ;) 

Zara always have nice staples that look so luxurious and are great quality. This top for £17.99 is one of them! When I looked at the price I couldn't believe my eyes, I thought it would cost a lot more. Hunnies, when a top is that nice and is that price, you don't think twice you just GRAB IT AND BUY! It's so pretty and elegant. I've worn it so many times this last month. Normally I'm a bit funny about all lace tops because they can give you really bad B.O ( Bad odour) But trust me this top doesn't do that, it also comes in white and black. 

Next week I'm travelling to Amsterdam, this is my second time going. On the first time I found it  very hard to find cute places to eat. If you have any recommendations comment below!!
