Life Through My iPhone: Week 7

Wowzas. Where has the time gone? This is the last week of June already and in two days time, it'll be July! In 6 months time, we would have already celebrated Christmas - there's a thought for you!
Anyhoos, another Sunday, another post of my week in photos...
Clockwise from top left:

Big Ben and Houses of Parliament: I see this London landmark pretty every day of work and it's so surreal to think that I work within minutes of it. My place of work is changing in a couple of months time so thought I'd snap this picture while I still can

Joe's Southern Kitchen: Went here with friends on Saturday evening... anyone care for a "Suarez"??

Ballerina Statue: Thought this was super pretty. It's in Covent Garden by Broad Street and the Royal Opera House is relatively close by - rather apt I thought. Can you spot my two crazy friends by the phone boxes??

Benefit Chair: Wandered to the Benefit pub after eating dinner at Joe's and fell in love with this chair. If I ever make it big in the blogging world, I am totally buying this chair. 
Enjoy,

Life | Pound World Haul


A new Pound World store has recently opened up in the concrete jungle of Croydon, and having recently tried to make a conscious effort to become a little more thrifty, I just had to pop in to see what was on offer. As the name suggests, everything inside is £1. ONE POUND I kid you not. It's unbelievable and of course I spent time in there browsing around the aisles looking for some bargains.

Beauty: Myleene Klass Nail Wraps




Part of my recent Pound World haul was the Myleene Klass Nail Wraps I found inside which I thought were pretty cute. Myleene Klass is someone that has been in the spotlight since I was a kid listening to hear'say to where she is now designing her own clothes range so when I spy her nail wraps going for a pound, it was something that needed be tried.

Beauty: No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour in Blackcurrant


When Boots have their No7 voucher promotion coupons flying around every time you spend over £5, and with the expiry date looming, it would just be cruel for me to waste it and let it stay at the bottom of my bag especially when you can get £3 off their make up range and/or £5 off their skin care range. Time to hit the No7 stand and find out what bargain I can pick up...

Travel | Throwback | Antalya, Turkey


All over Instagram and Twitter on a Thursday, social networkers participate in Throwback Thursday where they post a picture of something memorable that happened to them a few years ago. Instead of posting a photo, here's a blog post reminiscing about the time I went to Antalya, Turkey.

 In April/May 2013, one of my best friends and I decided to go on holiday together and the destination we chose was Antalya, Turkey. I have known this person since Year 7, though not properly until Year 9, which is still over 10 years of friendship and counting so needless to say, we've been through a lot together.

Beauty: Hot Pink Lips


As soon as the sun hits town and stays around for more than just a couple of hours, all the girls break out in the summer colours. Move over spring time pastels, it's time for the bright lights to take centre stage.  Neon is coming back into trend namely on our nails but it is not the only bright summer colours that we're wearing. It's all over us from our clothes to our make up and hot pink lips are no exception.

Life Through My iPhone: Week 5

Can you believe it? We're are over half way throughout the year! Are you loving the glorious weather that we've been having in London recently? Beautiful blue skies and lovely sunshine - absolute happiness. Hope you've had a good week and have a great Sunday - anyone celebrating Father's Day? Either way, here's another glimpse into my life...

Life | The Summer Tag!!



Having actively had my blog for not too long, I have never participated in a blog post tag. Oh the shame it comes with it! So while reading blogloving on my morning commute as I always do, I found that Fee from Make Up Savvy (after seeing Georgina's from Makeup Pixi 3 who I believe is the original tagger) posted one and saw it as the perfect opportunity for my first of hopefully many blog tags. So without further ado, let's get rolling with it!

DIY: Mint Choc Chip Milkshake

Hi lovelies,

Summer has definitely started to hit on London, and about time too! Anyone will tell you that I am not a morning person in the slightest, so to wake up with the sun streaming through my window and bright clear blue skies are very welcome. Plus I've embraced on wearing no tights already - bonus!

Food | Bodega Biarritz 1881 | Barcelona




Everywhere you look in Barcelona, all the restaurants are serving tapas and we hardly sampled any. So for our next meal, again relying on TripAdvisor, we quickly determined our next place as one ranked #64 out of 5633 restaurants in Barcelona based on 141 reviews with prices starting from £4. The place? Bodega Biarritz 1881 located in the Gothic Quarter, about 5-10minute walk away from our hotel down Las Ramblas.

Wong Kei: Ahh! Not much to say here other than there's a blog post coming soon on this restaurant! (Edit: blog post here)

Nail Wraps: Super disappointed with these - I'll explain why in a post on 24th June. Keep your eyes peeled for this one
(Edit: blog post here)

Westminster: Never seen Victoria Street look so empty and quiet but it was thanks to the State Opening of Parliament that occurred earlier this week

Chinese Bakery: Nom nom nom! Get in my tummy!

Barcelona: Hotel Arc La Rambla Review


For the duration of our stay in Barcelona, we stayed at the Hotel Arc La Rambla - a 3* hotel located on one of the main streets of Barcelona, and from where it partly gets its name, Las Ramblas. Going to Barcelona would be the OH and mine's first holiday abroad where we would actually stay overseas. The only other time we have left the country was for a day trip to Paris for Valentine's Day earlier this year so that doesn't count!

Barcelona: Las Ramblas and the Columbus Monument

  
There is one street in Barcelona which is near impossible to avoid if you visit this beautiful city. It's the street that is lined with trees on both sides, pedestrianised section in the middle and has a number of stalls and restaurants enticing you. It's also one of the biggest tourist traps in Barcelona. It is none other than Las Ramblas or La Rambla

Life Through My iPhone: Week 3

I cannot believe May has come to an end and we're now in June! How crazy is that?? I can remember how I celebrated New Year's Eve (being quite grumpy I couldn't celebrate it at home in PJs - the best kind in my opinion) and I can remember how I celebrated it the year before (getting the OH drunk which turned out hilarious) but I still cannot believe we're now halfway through 2014! 

Anyway, without further ado, here is my week in pictures as seen through my iPhone...
