24 Hour Fall City Guide

Hey beautiful souls!

London gave me opportunities, laugh, I had the chance to met amazing people. 
London gave me emotions even if I thought my heart was broken so many times I can't feel anything anymore.
And when people ask me what can I do when I have 24 hours in London?
Take a deep breath and came with me for a little journey.
First of all the National Gallery to see some of the greatest paintings. Walking in the city and seeing everything from the London guide is great, but to see the whole soul of London?!
Try to find the small things and gems in Camden, Islington, Shoreditch.

One of my favourite place is next to the Docklands. It's unique. You can just sit next to the water and look up to count the airplanes, you can explore the area and find the little gems there.
So my advice is join me tomorrow at the Trinity Buoy Wharf to make some unforgettable memories.

It's a nice way to mix art, culture, and if you are hungry you will find yourself in the USA drinking shakes at the Fat Boys Diner.
On the 25th November you can attend at the launch of the audio guide to TBW. This free event is for the public to explore the site where cherry pickers sit alongside artists, studios and where London's only Lighthouse shines over a 1940s diner.
Yes you read it right.
Lighthouse in London.
Full moon.
Chilly weather.
Hot tea at the Tea Studio.
Music at the Bow Creek Café.
You can book online here or just go there to see it yourself.
And if you need an online site where you can plan an event yourself whether you are planning a yoga class or a mindblowing festival go and use Eventbrite.

See you there.

Straight outta tha 90's

Hi everybody,

I was born in the 90s and sometimes I feel so old, other times just proud to be a 90's babe.
When I need inspiration, I go back to the original sources like Rachel Green! Do you remember her style? It is flawless! Great, clear, and always wearable.

Amazing right? I created a 90's inspired look, hope you will like it as much as I do. I fell in love with this skirt, I'm literally wearing it for days already. I just can't get enough of it. I'm wearing a mini skirt, a simple white vest, black tights and black&white shoes. I made my hair up, and that's it. 

White vest, Mini skirt,  Monochrome shoes,  Glasses

And almost forgot the cutest thing: my new glasses. I tried to look nice, I know I failed, but I still think, these glasses giving you the perfect look ;) What do you think?

Definitely you need to look forward to it ;)

Smells like Christmas!

Hi everyone,

as you saw my title there is something magical in this post. 
It's just the end of October and I know exactly that we have a fabulous halloween  before us, but I got a little surprise from the Internet gift store last week which I would like to share with you. Maybe this will be your perfect gift for someone you love, who knows...
Christmas can mean many thing but for most of the people it means love, family, presents, lights, cakes...
And there is no christmas without the childish excitement of opening the advent calendar.

After you entering the world of adulthood, you kind of feel you have no right to do it anymore.
BUT of course you can find joy in opening windows to have a little surprise for you every day of the last month of the year.
That's what makes it magical. Waiting for something special, when you are thankful for the little surprises everyday.
I wish I could just give you my gift to smell it. Because the Yankee candles are smelling heavenly. There are no words to describe it. As pretty is the whole package as freshly the smell is.
I wanted to make a special inside look for you, but I just don't wanted to open it. It just felt wrong. So forgive me my little excitement for December.... but I can't wait to see my beauties in the box.
At least but not last some information about this cute box you can find it under the name of Yankee Candle Advent Carousel, there are tea lights and votives behind the windows. And the heavenly smelling fragrances? Here you go: Berry Trifle, Bundle Up, Christmas Cookie and Cinnamon Stick, Red Apple Wreath, Candy Cane Lane, Angels Wings, and Snow in Love.
Goooooosh, my December will be so great ;)

Tea & Cheese Tasting

Hi everyone,

Once upon a time, there was a day when I made my tea "wrong" I wondered, why the taste was so strange, then I realised I forgot to put sugar in it, since that day I drink my tea without sugar. 
The only way I like it sweet when my dad makes it. He can make the best tea actually.
  This is a fact (for me)
London changed many things in my life. One thing is for sure my relationship with tea. I feel like we are getting more emotional with every day. Working in a place where is everything about tea is pretty nice and interesting. 
I never thought I would ever attend a Tea & Cheese Tasting. But as the wise people saying, never say never.

1.: Kyle and Robbyn, our hosts 2.: Trinity Buoy Wharf is magical 3.: Cheese!

The days were running after each other and the calendar showed the 8th October.
You know that people are loving the pairing of cheese and wine, but if it's tea and cheese? Some people may think you just gone crazy. But you just need to try it.
I never was a cheese person, I like it, but I never got excited about it.
If I can be honest (surely I can be more than honest here) it was surprisingly a taste sensation.
I never felt flavors so intense, it was a strange and great experience.

There were 6 pairing as you can see on the picture as well. 

  1. Green tea with Tripple cream - in other words, my favourite pairing. It was more than nice, the cheese melted like the tea and the cheese danced in your mouth.
  2. Hojicha (Japanese tea) with Brie de Meaux - After the first pairing, you just don't ask anything, you try to reach your maximum capacity of your taste buds. And you actually kind of doing 'mmmm' sounds every seconds.
  3. Oolong with Morbie 
  4. Oolong with Taleggio - the third and fourth cheese goes with the same tea (taste is already different). You can feel the difference. If I need to choose then the Taleggio is more likely for me.
  5. Assam with Compte - Alpine herbs and flavours. Assam is a very intense tea, and this is my reason to not to like this pairing so much. Probably I need to make a step forward, grow up, and starting a new friendship with Assam.... who knows.
  6. Finally Jasmine pearls with Gorgonzola Picante - such an interesting pairing. This tea is magical! I'm not kidding it's like you drinking flowers. Usually I like it and the other times I feel like it's too much. So intense.  
If you think you will be not full after this event, you are just so wrong. I felt like I ate so much, that I needed to rest a little, when I got home :D
You can find many useful information about tea at the Tea Studio website.

Did you ever attended an event like this?
Would you try it?

Hi lovelies,

a little throwback in this post which brings us back in September, when I attended a store event, to see the SS16 collection of Yufash.
The day was on the 20th of September, the sun was out, the LFW was on, and we had a little time to pop by at Dover street on that afternoon.
As a welcome they give us champagne, cupcakes and of course we had the chance to see the new collection.
The most exciting fact was that they used fake hair to make some pieces more extravagant, which kind of looked cool, but I will stop talking/writing, here are the pictures.

Happy Life

Hi everyone,

I'm not sure if you know it or not, but I'm a really huge fan of TED talks. I always find inspiration in those videos.
I have many favourites about beatboxing, philosophy, psychology, confidence, biology, music, digital technology....  so basically you can always find new things to be interested.
I'm passionate about the research of happiness and I like to learn more and more about how people communicate with each other either in verbal or nonverbal.
To be honest I can't watch Sam's speach without crying. His advices are simple... Really simple, be with people you love, don't feel sorry for yourself long, look forward, and never miss a party. Simple as it sounds, but kind of the hardest decisions to make.
And you see him. He is brave, he was happy, and he had that prom, which he was looking forward to.
His journey ended on the Earth last year, but his message is still with us and the way he saw the world and spoke about happiness inspires many people.
"No matter what I choose to become, I believe that I can change the world."
Yes, you can and yes, you did Sam Berns!

Take care!

London Fashion Week

Hi beauties, 

this is the last day of September, which is crazy. AGAIN!
I know I'm telling you this every month, but I surely don't know where the time flies.
I was lucky enough to attend LFW this year as well, which was awesome and soooo tiring :D
I loved many shows, Pam Hogg was killing it and I liked many clothes from the Swedish School of Textiles. I didn't want to bother you with catwalk pictures. Because I'm sure you saw enough of it, so here are some shoots from the LFW.
Follow my Instagram for more.

Take care!
