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!
