Easter at Kew

I come from a long line of nature lovers in my family.

Every year we spend our summers in Zermatt, Switzerland to gaze at the majestic mountains, exotic alpine flora and wild animals. Add to that the fresh, clean air and that mighty Matterhorn view and you can probably picture quite the postcard perfect scene.

So it's quite a wonder as to why we don't always make the most of the natural beauty that's on our doorstep. Thus, for Easter, we headed to Kew Gardens for a dose of all things flora and fauna (though sadly, I don't think anything can compete with my precious Zermatt).

Press For Champagne, Bob Bob Ricard

It's a truth universally acknowledged that champagne on your birthday is mandatory.

Naturally, to follow this cardinal rule and to celebrate my 19th birthday in style, my sister and I headed to Soho's iconic English-Russian restaurant Bob Bob Ricard for a glass of bubbly.

Spring to Summer Fashion Inspo...

I love this time of year for dressing; we can say au revoir to bulky layering, ciao to knitted scarves and adios to woolly hats. It's so exciting to dust off our spring clothes to usher in a new wave of style that the previous season made us forget. Though, I'm not a big lover of typical spring attire of pastels and florals. Instead, I like to opt for a lighter colour palette, looser fabrics and a peep of tanned, radiant skin. That's why my spring-summer fashion inspiration won't showcase any pastel pinks or floral dresses anytime soon ("florals for spring? Groundbreaking" - please tell me you get this reference).

So with the season in full bloom (literally), I've been endlessly scanning inspiration on Pinterest to freshen up my wardrobe for 2017. Here's what I found!

A Birthday in Bath Part 2

I fell head over heels for the Georgian architecture in Bath. Symmetrical, weathered and classically simple, Bath is saturated with picturesque architecture in every corner. So on our second day we headed out into the cold to feast our eyes on just that.
