Very excited that in around 1 week I`ll be heading to Barcelona! I`ve heard so many great things about this amazing city and always wanted to visit it. Sand & sea, beautiful weather, great architecture, and delicious tapas. If you have any tips of things to do let me know!

 Going through a bit of existential crisis at the moment, trying to decide wether I should let my natural hair colour grow or not. I feel my hair needs a change, or more like I need a change and usually when I get that feeling my hair is the first to suffer. Decisions, decisions.

Travel: Poznań, Poland Photo Diary

 On Thursday I left London for the sunny and picturesque Poznań, which is one of the oldest cities in Poland. Although we stayed only 2 nights we had some amazing weather and got the chance to roam the city`s old streets, and eat delicious Polish food.
Unfortunately I didn`t get the chance to take as many photos as I would have wanted to but here are a couple taken with my Iphone.

The old town`s small streets are filled with terraces, restaurants & bars and people usually stay out till morning. On one of this quirky streets I got the chance to meet my date for the night: Charlie Chaplin. I like that he put an effort to dress up for our date.

Our hotel was right in the centre and had a lovely art deco design. Each room was inspired by a different city in the world.

I also met my evil twin in the bathroom of a Polish restaurant. Btw, how cute is that pink sofa?

 As it was really hot during the day (over 32 degrees!!) we mostly walked outside during the night. This cathedral was in the old town`s square.

 Finally this is one of the few times when I actually remembered to take a photo of the food BEFORE I ate it. These are Polish style dumplings filled with cabbage and topped with crispy bacon. Amazingly good!

London: Petersham Nurseries

Petersham Nurseries is probably one of the cutest places in London. If you love anything related to flowers, gardening, organic food, and shabby chic furniture you`ll definitely adore this place.
The best thing about this small piece of heaven is probably the Petersham Nurseries Cafe and Teahouse that is inside
a real green house which means you can have your lunch surrounded by plants and flowers. 
 I had a delicious salad (best tomatoes ever!), a banana cake, and Jasmine tea.

After lunch we checked the garden shop and the antique furniture. I came home with hundreds of photos. Everywhere and everything is picture worthy.

What do you think of my new love birds t-shirt?

By the end I wanted to buy everything or quit my job and become a full time gardener. A few more trips to this place and that might actually happen.

Outside London: The Crown at Bray


Saturday we had a lovely, warm day so we decided to have a small road trip to Bray, which is a very charming English village about half an hour from London. We firstly went for lunch at The Crown at Bray, a 14th century traditional pub with a lovely garden. I love this type of old pubs that have managed to keep their amazing, complex architecture and charm.

The food was delicious as well. I know the photo below might horrify some vegetarians but I just had to take a picture of it.

After lunch we went for a walk and found this lovely green field where we kinda just sat (took a nap) before heading back home.the crown at bray

For the trip I wore this summery, vintage dress I got from a boutique in Paris. Although when I bought it, there were still about 2 degrees in London, I just had this vision of wearing it somewhere on a beach with no shoes on and wind flying through my hair. 
Do you sometimes get this type of visions where you just know exactly how you would wear a certain piece of clothing the moment you see it in the shop? Please tell me yes so I know I`m not crazy :)
