Columbia Road Flower Market

Colombia Road Flower Market is one of the best things about Hackney. It’s beautiful, you can get wonderful flowers, the shops around there are great and there is loads of nice food around there too. Everyone knows it’s one of the nicest ways to spend a Sunday morning in Hackney- especially if you then get a chicken-centric brunch at Clutch or a delicious coffee from any of the little windows along the side of the market. It is definitely worth a trip, but it can get really busy so make sure you go early in the morning- or later in the day to snag some bargains on some beautiful flowers. And becausethe weather is finally nice and it looks lovely outside, why not pick up an assortment of nice flowers to bring spring into your house: To get to Columbia Road Flower Market, grab an overground to Hoxton or Shoreditch High Street- but if they are down for ‘Planned Engineering Works’ (or ‘Planned General Inconvenience’ as I call it, jump on the Central Line to Bethnal Green- …

Street Style: Blonde Kim

So Kim Kardashian is no longer a striking brunette- she is now a striking blonde. I honestly don’t know what to say about it… It’s definitely not awful, but it’s not great either. I guess it could be edgy, but I feel like the colour is wrong, and I can definitely still see some dark on the sides. It is far too yellow for my taste- and if it’s edgy she wants why not commit to full-on ice-blonde almost ice shade? The styling feels a bit wrong as well- sort of greasy. Oh Kim…I know you only wash your hair every 5 days, but surely the hair-dresser does it for you when you get it coloured. Sigh. Maybe this is like that time Katy Perry bleached her hair and everyone was like ‘OMG!’ only for her to dye it pink immediately. though somehow I doubt Kim is about to go all bubble-gum on us. So, what do you think?

Wednesday Wishlist: Spring

I guess if I was being totally honest, this list wouldn’t be a list at all. It would be a single word printed in bold and heaving with wishful thinking. SPRING, come at me bro! Thankfully, the sun has been out here in London, and it does feel like the weather is about to break. So, I have put together a little list of Spring essentials, in preparation for the BEST SEASON OF THEM ALL: 1. Vitamin C Serum for plump and healthy skin It’s no secret that I love a good serum. I was once told that for my age-group (20-something fabulous), Vitamin C is really the only age prevention serum that I need- so I jumped on the VitC Train and never looked back. Choo-choo. My skin routine is super basic: I use Micellar Water to remove my make-up and cleanse at the end of the day, and then apply the Vitamin C Serum. In the morning I scrub and wash my face, and apply the serum again before make-up. Easy. I have been …
