Marc by Marc Jacobs ‘Haul’

Marc Jacobs Necklaces & Compact Mirror

You probably all know by now that I’m a Marc Jacobs fan.
Well whilst I was in London last month I decided to stop by the ‘Marc by Marc Jacobs’ store.
I absolutely love the store. It’s spacious, laid out well and in a gorgeous building, in a lovely part of London.
Whilst I was there I said I would treat myself to a little suttin’ suttin’, kind of like a celebratory gift to me, for finishing university and exams etc. Of course I could have picked tons of items, but I didn’t want to spend too much. I was thinking of an iPhone case as I’ve been wanting one for a while, but I love my Gemma Correll one too much.
I finally decided on the ‘Wishbone Necklace’, ‘Monocle Necklace’ and the ‘Heart Compact Mirror’.
I’ve been eyeing the wishbone necklace and mirror for a while, although I actually hadn’t seen the monocle necklace before, but I have a thing for monocles so I had to add it to my collection. I also loved the idea of a manly monocle mixed with gold and pearls.
I can’t wait to start accessorising with these!!

I’m a pretty big foodie, if you hadn’t already guessed, so I wanted to post a bit about food in London.
There are some amazing places to eat and pick up food, and these are just a few of the places I visited on my last trip.
Kind of like a Where to Eat in London – I have included the name, type of restaurant/cafe/store, the location of the place I visited, and a link to their website, as the bigger places have more than one location.
I had to split this series into two (maybe three) posts as I just had too many places and photos I wanted to feature.
If you’re curious about what I ate feel free to ask but I didn’t write it as I think it’s self explanatory from the photos.
I wouldn’t have included these places if I didn’t love and recommend them.
So if you have the chance you should definitely check them out!

Here are a couple of my outfits from my recent London trip. I actually had about 4 outfits for the trip, but I was so busy I didn’t manage to get photos of them all. I could have drawn these out and made two separate posts, but I figured one was enough.
At the moment I really love pairing basics together with cute accessories. So I decided on a couple of simple outfits as I wasn’t sure what the weather would be like. As it turned out the weather was a bit chilly for the first couple of days, and then it got pretty hot. I also knew that I would be doing a lot of walking, so I didn’t want anything too awkward.

I think I’ve got enough wear out of my Topshop necklace already! I’m so glad I bought it – I love it so much. I wear it as often as I can. I feel a little bad for all my other necklaces, but they’ll get their turn soon enough.

Photo Diary: London

 Lilli Vanilli Bakery, M&M Store, Bubbleology, Cheap Monday, Monki, Absolute Vintage & Tatty Devine

Just a few snaps I took on my recent visit to London.
Before I had to move away for University I used to visit London quite often, as I live close enough, so I don’t really do the tourist-y things. I do however like to visit lots of shops and cafes! Apart from spending time with my lovely gals whilst I was there, I did visit the new Monki store and Cheap Monday as I haven’t been back since they opened. I also re-visited my favourite Tatty Devine store and plenty of vintage stores. 
For lovers of Match/Green Tea, Bubbleology in Soho has Matcha bubble tea. We stopped by and I had to grab one! 
The guy who was working was a bit odd, and didn’t really have the best customer service skills to be honest, but the bubble tea was lovely.
I apologise for the lack of photos.
I was taking them off my phone very early this morning (couldn’t sleep) and ended up deleting some by accident, in my half-awake state. Farewell pictures of delicious cakes and food, you shall be sorely missed.

Photo Diary: The Breakfast Club, London

The Breakfast Club, Hoxton, London

Whilst I was in London, the fiancé’s sister (who very kindly put us up for the weekend, thank you) decided to take us for breakfast in The Breakfast Club. I hadn’t been before, so the whole experience was wonderful.
It reminded me a lot of the places I had gone to for breakfast in America. The menu was packed full of a variety of amazing dishes, whilst the ‘smallest disco in the world‘ in the toilets, acted as entertainment. Like the ‘Fraggle Rock’ wallpaper? I did.
The 3 of us all choose very different breakfasts: 
The fiancé – Breakfast Burrito, his sister – french toast with chunks of apple and eggy bread, and finally me – The All-American. I allowed myself to forget about my diet that weekend, and I’m so glad I did
The All-American was like the breakfast I remembered having when I was 16, on my first trip to America to visit my family. Tasty and filling; I didn’t eat until dinner!
We left around 12, and the queue outside was massive!
It’s a popular place, so if you do decide to visit then you should probably do it before the rush.
They always say Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and if you’re starting it at TBC you really can’t go wrong!
