The Blogmopolitan Quiz

So this morning I'm just chillin'. Y'know, reading some blogs, following links from blogs and reading some more blogs. Blogs. So many blogs.

Then I discover (Definitely) My Cup of Tea, written by Crissy.

All cool and dandy.

She's got some pretty cool posts and I'd definitely recommend checking her out. Good writing, good ideas. Oh and she's from Spain? Awesome.

And then I clicked on her About Me page.

She's only from the same freakin' city as me!

Now, it's a pretty small city okay? Like titchy. You could probably fit the whole of Palma de Mallorca into one of London's boroughs. There's only like 400,000 people living there compared to London's 8 million or whatever.

So in honour of this pretty awesome coincidence (I do so love a good coincidence), I'm gonna do The Blogmopolitan Quiz featured on her blog.

You know those questionnaires Cosmo magazine features when they interview a celeb? It's pretty much that.

The only thing missing was the little doodle self-portrait. So I took it upon myself to add that too!

Lunch at Taylor St Baristas

Looking for somewhere to have lunch in London?

Tucked away in a little side-street near Bond Street tube station is a teeny-tiny little coffee shop called Taylor St Baristas.

One of my work colleagues took me here a few weeks after I started working in the area and I was totally blown away by their amazing grilled sandwiches, delicious salads and out-of-this-world coffees.

I've been going back every since!

My Top 5 | Summer Music Albums

There is nothing I love more in Summer than sitting out on a terrace or in the garden, covered in suncream, hair pulled back, shades on and sipping on a cold glass of something fizzy. (Prosecco is always good but a lemonade and lime would do nicely as well...)

Add some speakers and good tunes and I'm set for the day!

I LOVE summer music. Chilled out vocals, acoustic guitars and casual beats vs sunny, boppy 90's Pop. There's nothing better! (Christmas music? Well yes. I do love Miss Piggy's cover of Santa Baby... But Christmas is a whole 5 months away so lets stick to the Summer tunes for now hmm?)

There's some fab new stuff out this year (Ed Sheeran's X comes to mind!) but we all have those favourites that we listen to over and over. The tunes that you can listen to at any time of year and they immediately take your mind back to Summer.

I have a list of individual songs I go back to as well, of course. But I think there's something special about an album, where you can just press play and know you're going to enjoy every single track.

So here's My Top 5 Summer Music Albums!

IN BETWEEN DREAMS - Jack Johnson

OK can I just start by saying that this album IS Summer.

Recorded in Hawaii, it is pure acoustic, surfer magic. Jack's chilled out vocals, the acoustic guitar, the ukelele, gorgeous lyrics, chilled out vibes... It's got it all.

Perfect summer chill-time.

Favourite Tracks: Better Together - Banana Pancakes - Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

Fashion Inspiration | Cruise Day-to-Night


I've never been on a cruise.

It's one of those things that I've always been interested in. I just tend to get very hideously, horrendously sea-sick. So it's not really featuring in my future life plans.

For some reason, the thought of cruising always makes me think of flowy white dresses, parasols, sun-hats... and Leonardo di Caprio.

That might be the other reason I'm not that crazy about the thought of cruising. Well... we've all seen Titanic. And we all know what a big fraidy-cat I am (and if you didn't before, you know now!)

But the elegance of it all! The class! Dinner with the captain, silk evening dresses, ropes of glittering jewels.

I sometimes seriously think I was born in the wrong century.

So when I was asked if I'd be interested in putting together a day-to-night outfit post for the Virgin Holiday's Cruise Fashion Competition, I knew immediately what my key piece was going to be: this gorgeously simple, white, short-sleeved midi dress from Topshop.
