Blondie’s cookie sandwich and Bone Daddies


I had such a lovely monday afternoon guys. After work I took the tube two stops to Old Street and met up with Pharao. We bought two cookie sandwiches (!!!) from Blondies, a new pop up at the station, realised there were no seats so walked outside to find some. dsc07366-copy dsc07371-copydsc07367-copy dsc07368-copy We ended up here.. A relatively new area behind Old Street station with benches and restaurants.dsc07372-copy dsc07373-copy dsc07374-copy dsc07376-copy dsc07378-copyThe cookie sandwiches gets a 6/10 from me. Rather harsh I know. I would’ve prefered them warm and with ice cream in the middle – and the girls could’ve been a liiiittle more enthusiastic about selling them 🙂dsc07381-copy
Mikaela joined us and we spotted the restaurant Bone Daddies, so we obviously had to go there!dsc07382-copy dsc07383-copyMikaela confessed that this was her very first time trying Ramen and both me and Pharao was super excited that we got to share this amazing new experience with her, hahadsc07385-copy dsc07386-copy Yumdsc07387-copy

(She would’ve lost so many brownie points if she didn’t like it tbf..)dsc07393-copy Why is it that I always wear a white shirt when I’m eating soup?! Luckily Bone Daddies supply these lovely bibs 😉dsc07398-copyWe ended our meal with these amazing mochi ice creams. Salt caramel and coconut are my faves!


Wednesday list | What?


IMG_6831-0.pngWhat makes you stressed?
Not being on time, not knowing how to complete a task, when others are not on time haha

What are you doing tonight?
Meeting up with my bf after work and going to try on some winter coats. Cook a nice dinner and relaxIMG_7690

What’s easy?
It’s easy to be lazy, to be hard on yourself and to forget friends when you’re busy. It’s easy to make pancakes, to start something new and say yes/noimg_9739.jpeg

What’s for dinner?
I feel like cooking something with fish.. perhaps cod?

What do you want to do more?
Travel more, blog more, go and see more musicals, cook more, bake more, learn more, spend more time with people who lift me up and go to the gym moreIMG_6786.JPG

What makes you excited?
Planning trips, visiting a new city, anything related to food and seeing my friends/partner succeed

What makes you cry?
Where do I start? Youtube clips, films, (since NYC) saying goodbye to friends, chopping onion, when I’m irritated at G or friends or when they are with me. I cry of laughter, exhaustion and talking about difficult things. I actually quite like crying which may seem a bit weird. I like the feeling just after you’ve had a good cry – like you don’t have any tears left and you’re now ready to let it go. For me, crying is how I release my feelings.

What made you angry last?
I got really angry with myself last week when I forgot my lunch haha – other than that I don’t really get angry. More annoyed with things.

What tastes good?
Tacos, crème brulee, ice cream, meatballs, avocado, pizza, pasta carbonara, sweet potato fries, steak, halloumi, strawberries, sushi.. I can go on for a while.DSC03832 DSC03846 DSC03932 DSC04097 img_1756.jpg
What made you really happy last?
The joy I felt at Evan and Sofia’s wedding was unreal. More recently.. I was very happy seeing Pharao and Mikaela on Mondaydsc07161-copy
What are your weekend plans?
I’m going to see Troyboi on thursday (it’s not really the weekend but whatever), not to sure about friday, meet Tom for lunch on Saturday and probably go out in the evening.


My Saturday in pictures


My weekend started with a glass of wine after work on Friday and an early night – just what I needed. On saturday I spent an hour (or two) watching New Girl and did some blogging before my friend Nigel came around to cook me breakfast!Nigel! 🙂dsc07361-copyHe cooked the most amazing frittata with bacon, peppers and cheese. nom nom.dsc07362-copydsc07363-copydsc07364-copyAfter hours of catching up he left to continue with his own plans whilst I got ready to meet the Makool sisters!
Yas managed to somehow convince me to try out Five Guys.We ordered the normal burgers, fries and milkshakesYas <3And I tried my first ever double burger, haha.. After our gourmet meal we walked over to Selfridges and tried on some fancy outfits. Selfridges is already in holiday spirit!I said goodbye to the sisters and met G and we walked to Lights of Soho and had a relaxed evening drinking cocktails and sining along to 00’s rnbAnd yesterday I woke up and felt the need for a change so I spent the entire day redecorating my room. I literally moved all my furniture around and even though it’s all (obviously) from IKEA it was a pretty heavy job haha. It’s not completely done yet but once it is I’ll do a little room tour. Puss!


Esthechoc event at D thomas clinic


Last week me and Shannon was invited to a slightly unusual event: Wine and chocolate tasting at D Thomas clinic in Chelsea!
Esthechoc is the result of years and years of research and lab experiments at Cambridge Chocolate Technologies (yes, it exists). Let me try and explain Esthechoc:
Estechoc is a skin health anti-ageing dark chocolate containing 72.6% chocolate. It contains an insane amount of antioxidants (more so than a regular bar of dark chocolate) and cocoa polyphenols. They claim that the chocolate will not only raise insulin levels but also improve skin health in just three weeks!
Unlike some supplements that are hard for the gut to digest (like capsules), this is absorbed like any other food and therefore impacts your body and skin from the inside effectively. See, you totally get it now, right?
I entered the clinic and was greeted by the lovely girls from EBWPR. They had Chocolate mylk from Raw Press and lots of other yummy chocolate treats displayed. dsc07282-copy dsc07283-copy After a lovely introduction from EBWPR we had a great skin care talk with Debbie Thomas. She spoke about the importance of what we put in our bodies in terms of foods. Debbie has plenty of treatments that can help with topical problems but if you want a long term solution you need to look at absolutely everything – from what you eat to what you put on top of your skin.
After the talk we had a lovely wine tasting session with South London Wine School. We paired three different red wines to the dark chocolate and talked about spices, notes and berries. Super interesting! dsc07294-copydsc07288-copy dsc07290-copyAfter the wine tasting Dr Marek from Cambridge Chocolate Technology overwhelmed us with scientific talks. The amount of research they had done before launching Esthechoc is super impressive and I am convinced this is just not “another supplement”. dsc07295-copy dsc07297-copydsc07354-copy dsc07355-copy dsc07356-copyWe were given a goodie bag and I’m not going to lie, I secretly hoped we’d be given a trial of Esthechoc and we did! Yaayy!
Can’t wait to try these out. In the goodie bag they also had a lip balm and body butter from Body Shop and a face mask from Anatomicals – all chocolate of course!

Thanks EBWPR for the invite 🙂


My most recent pins


I’m just a tad obsessed with Pinterest (click to see my profile) and here are my latest pins! I pin everything from interior to clothes to recipes. Pinterest is the best place to get inspiration and cravings, haha.

This looks delicious.. Imagine a slice of bread with nutella on top? Oh my.
Apartment goals. Love the neutral tones and simple interior

Beautiful floral arrangement

I’m always looking for various ways to put my hair up! Will definitely try this soon

Just bought a spiralizer and can’t wait to test it out! This egg and potato combo looks yum

As much as I absolutely love the white and neutral scandinavian look there’s something special about dark interior.. It’s just so sexy. Doubt I would ever be so brave to decorate my own house in these colours but I like the idea, haha!

Love super thin and delicate rings.. My Selah Vie jewelry need some friends soon

Kitchen goals. Marble and cactuses. Love.

Stunning jacket from All Saints. I rarely like such a light coloured outfit but this looks cool
