These pictures sure bring back memories of my London trips! During my first year at University, I went down south a handful of times to explore the city and many of its gems - second year however, I was only able to hop down twice - these were taken back in March by Hoxton Square where Francesca and I attended a little event, but first we stopped by Bill's Restaurant for the first time. I absolutely love the shape of this dress from Boohoo with its over-layer and minimalistic look, which I paired with these dainty heels that I also bought a while back. 

One thing for sure is that I'll be returning back (hopefully in the next month or so)! The city holds places that I can't wait to see again and there's stiil a bucketful of places I'm yet to see - what would be some of your must-see sites there? Hope you all have a lovely week up ahead!

It sure has been a while! The past couple of months have been the combination of completing my Second Year at university (thankfully, on a great note!) and gradually finding my feet with all things related to family and friends. None of it has been easy which is why I had put my blog on a break for the time being, but it's forever a platform I love returning to. A lot has happened I'd say since - I've came across such wonderful people, I had the opportunity to visit and stay at places I'd never imagine, I'm (weirdly) looking forward to my final year of my degree - and I'd say I've grown a lot more as a person especially. With how crazy life can be at times, I've learnt to live 'more' in the moment - worrying about the past or what will be  isn't in the slightest making progress. Sometimes it's all about just keeping your head high and remembering that there's just so many things I'm happy for, even when things feel like they are falling apart. Either way, there's always a lot to look forward to and we can only hope things fall into place! 

That aside, I was pretty dazed by how colourful these pictures have turned out! Summer has definitely had its moment and I'm hoping to make the most of these warm days and blue skies. I spent the day, visiting local attractions which I haven't seen in years, and popping by a popular tea place for the first time. How has your Summer been so far?

How exciting, this is the first post of the year 2015! Whilst I have a couple more things I'd like to share here (and just before I can grasp it's the end to a beautiful time), I wanted to share my journey just a few days before Christmas where I went to good ole' London with my friend, Francesca. It's within the past year or so, that I've been travelling up and down England but the one thing that stays true to my heart and is always something I look forward to, is visiting Covent Garden during the festive wintery season. From the incredibly huge baubles to the incredibly beautiful tree, all parked by the lovely Laduree which we couldn't resist, I demand that visiting this place at this time becomes an annual tradition of mine! 
As mentioned, we helped ourselves to sandwiches at Laduree which I hadn't visited in forever, and Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park was next on our list to cross off. For those who haven't been or have the faintest idea of what it is, Winter Wonderland can be spilt into two; on one side, markets and stalls full of quirky, unique and beautiful pieces and on the other, all sorts of rides you'd find at a Funfair - but a whole lot cooler. And knowing me, of course, I couldn't help but buy a cute dainty dragonfly necklace...in the first 5 minutes of being there! Along the way, we saw so many beautiful d├ęcor - I had to seriously cut down on the number of pictures in this post! - and I also managed to finish off my Christmas shopping along Oxford Street.
This has been the first time visiting London as a Second Year student so I'm compelled to plan even more exciting trips there this year (and by all means, if you have any suggestions, let me know!). Hope you have a lovely weekend!
