Pocket London with Shopa

Hello Hello!  Hope everyone's weekend has been a good one!  
I had my lovely friend Amy come to stay with me and we enjoyed a very nice time indeed.  Friday we dined out at Arepa which is a fabulous Venezuelan restaurant in Haggerston then Saturday was spent mooching around Hackney enjoying Prosecco in London Fields and food from Broadway Market.  A perfect Saturday.

 I was recently contacted by Shopaa shopping platform connecting retailers with customers offering an easy online shopping experience from a selection of brands!  Shopa got in touch and asked me to style up a piece from MIC Louise Thompson's brand Pocket London and I am in love with this sweatshirt!  Its the perfect Summer jumper - cropped, lightweight with a cool and colourful print.  Styled with ripped jeans, chunky boots, scrunchie and my obligatory gold accessories it oozes a 90's vibe.

She popped the Question!


Hello lovely people, obvious opening question  - Are you all enjoying the SUN!!! 
 London has come alive this past week and I for one am certainly revelling in this glorious weather, I even walked a bit of the way to work last night and this morning!  The kick I have in my step today is not just down to the weather but also down to the fact that last night my best friend of 17 years asked me to be her CHIEF BRIDESMAID!  I was in complete shock as her and her fiancĂ© drove up to London to surprise me and pop the question, now that’s pure friendship in my eyes and I was totally honoured.  Roll on 2017!
 Now I have shared my happy news I also thought I would share Tuesday outfit, god love the light evenings as I can now snap my work looks!  Skirts, brogues and slogan Tee’s are the focus of this look actually, this whole week has been a mix up of skirts with various different shoe styles.  I’s waaaaay too hot for trousers on the dreaded central line tube!
 What have you guys been wearing now the suns out, I need to start updating my Summer wardrobe so let me know your favourite Summer pieces!

London Life

So I thought this post was about due as 8 months ago I moved to London and can honestly say it was the best move and decision I have ever made.  London is everything everyone says it is, fast paced, hectic, smelly, loud, expensive...   

I spend every morning and every night under the arm pit of some hairy man (sadly, never a hot man).  Once the suffocating commute is done I am rushing down the street tutting at the slow walkers as I make my way to work.  I am 40 minutes early, but yes I am still rushing, because in London everyone rushes.  Once the rushing is done I get into work, do what I need to do before breaking the daily slog up with trip out for lunch.  
Usually spending money in Pret, Itsu or at a new smoothie place it's then back to to the office until 6pm.  The rushing and commuting takes place again and its home to my lovely housemates, I'll eat, blog and then finally go to bed, absolutely exhausted.  Then repeat.

However...

Everyday I see something new whether its a cool piece of wall-art or amazing street style inspo.

I've tried foods I would never have even touched before (no joke I now eat avocado, quinoa and Buckwheat).

I have made new friends who have now become very good friends (and excellent boozing buddies)

The monthly oyster card ticket - with this card all travel at the weekend is basically free (it's not but it feels like it is).

I can officially say I work in fashion.

There is always something to do.

There are the coolest vintage shops, hidden car-boots and vintage market stalls ever in London.

My local pub shuts at 2am every Friday and Saturday night and its a proper good East End London boozer, oh and it's award winning to!

There are better places to take blog pics, better roads, houses, graffiti, walls whatever back drop you fancy London's got it.

I can finally go to Blog events with minimal drama and no expensive train ticket.

It's cultural and interesting and forces you to learn about people and things you would never have needed to before.

I regularly meet people with the same interests as me... blogging, shopping, photography, drinking *ahem*

Anyway the list could go on trust me, but I just wanted to jot a couple of notes down about our wonderful capital and my experience of moving to it.  If your thinking of moving here then do it, don't wait, do it.  I waited until I was 28 and my only regret is not doing it sooner.

#OOTD

Happy Friday seems to be the most appropriate way to start this post, knowing I don't have to set an alarm tomorrow is literally the best feeling ever.  Although I have nothing to get up for I am still having a quiet one tonight, it's 10pm and I am already in bed, absolute party animal, I know.  

I'll keep this short and sweet as I am insanely tired but here's a quick shot of what I wore this week when I went out and over indulged in famous Brick Lane curry.  
Thank god the outfit was baggy...

Monday Musing - Lace Up Sandals

Lace up sandals, what better inspiration for a Monday morning seeing as Spring is well an truly here and today's the day that I go on holiday!  
Me and a couple of my girls are off to Egypt to chill the F out, go mental at the all inclusive buffet and try every cocktail on the menu.  

I. cannot.wait.

I absolutely love a high sandal but sadly I don't wear heels enough, I am all trainers and chunky boots since I moved to London.  I am getting my Lace up Sandal wish list together and must admit Free PeopleASOS and John Lewis all have some great picks, roll on payday!

90's Vibes

Put your hands together for my latest chazza shop piece... 
I bought this denim jacket a couple weeks back for the grand old total of £2, a serious bargain don't you think?  I feel very me in this outfit, denim, a scrunchie and an oversized shirt, rocking a very 90's vibe which is fiiiiine by me as it's definitely my fave era.

I hope you all are having a good weekend so far!  I came home Thursday so have been enjoying some TLC, the sky box and M&S food back at the parents!  Can't beat home comforts can you.  Last night was spent dining out with some old pals catching up and having the usual photo shoot sesh throughout our lovely tapas tea, standard.  

Continuing the theme of eating out Amy and I enjoyed a lovely brunch at The Garage Lounge in Southsea (check out my Insta for all related food pics) where I scoffed down a bacon sarnie, again standard.
