Sunday Brunch at Thomas’s Cafe Burberry

Today it was raining so much in London, but I had the perfect excuse to dress up a little and get out of the house. We had a table booked at Thomas’s Cafe Burberry and we could not wait to enjoy a Sunday brunch there. 

It was our first time in the Cafe and I was just amazed by the look of the entrance. The place is literally around the corner from the Burberry store in Regent Street. Very convenient location if you’re spending the day out and about shopping.

We went in and we were suddenly approached by a very friendly gentleman who took our coats and escorted us upstairs -apparently the downstairs seating area is for tea-time, but if you want to enjoy a meal the main restaurant is located on the first floor-.

The athmosphere was so calm and sophisticated, perfect for a rainy Sunday. The place had already scored a 10/10 and we hadn’t even tried the food yet.  

Everything on the menu looked so delicious that we decided to order a green tea and a cappuccino while we deliberated what to eat. In the end, Mike decided to try the lobster benedict (that came with fries!) and I got the salmon with scrambled eggs. It all tasted amazing! I think I had the best smoked salmon I have ever had. 

We couldn’t have left without having a little something for dessert -we both have extremely sweet teeth- so we treated ourselves with some spiced orange and chocolate cakes. Yum! 

I can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu, including the cakes!! Thanks for having us Thomas's Cafe. You definitely brightened up this rainy Sunday. 


Love,

Laura xx

It's Weekend O'Clock With Jord Wood Watches

IMG_0806.JPG

Hi guys.

Christmas is around the corner and I get to go home for it this year. Couldn't be happier!
It's the time of the year when everyone gets together with the family and the ones we love. This weekend Mike and I got to escape the craziness of London during the holiday season and headed down to the south coast to visit his family. 

Everything is different here. It's calm and peaceful, the air feels cleaner and time seems to slow down making the days feel longer. Plus, of course I am always going to love a village that is next to the sea!

The first thing I packed into my bag was my beautiful new wood watch from JORD and then all my outfits revolved around that beautiful timepiece. It's just so easy to combine with neutral tones and knits this winter season. I love wearing it with my camel coat.
JORD watches are made from unique woods from around the world. Mine is the perfect combination of deeply grained Zebra-wood and anchoring navy blue.

During our stay in the south coast we went to this little coffee place that looked like a winter wonderland on the inside. The whole place was beautifully decorated with delicate Christmas ornaments and cute homemade gingerbread houses on the windows. I couldn't help but take a lot of pictures while I was there! My watch matched the room perfectly; both so rustic yet elegant.

JORD wood watches make the perfect Christmas gift for someone who likes to make moments count. Moments are more important than minutes and your watch should tell more than time. 

Also, there is a cool giveaway happening at the moment! Just by clicking on the link below and signing up you will receive a $25 JORD eGift note and then one lucky person will win a $100 JORD eGift note!! The giveaway runs until the 15th January 2017 at 11:59pm. Good luck! :)

Happy Christmas season to all of you!

Lots of Love,

Cosy Knit Season

As we are getting close to Christmas time, the temperatures are going down and it's hard to find a piece of clothing that is cozy, keeps you warm and still looks good on.

This year I bought my knitwear quite late in the season because I could not find quite what I was looking for. Until I saw that big woolblend knit jumper in cream from Zara. It comes also in a darker gray tone. I love the string detail on the neck-line; it makes the jumper a very versatile piece for these upcoming cold months. You can tie it up to the top or loosen it down and create a more laid back off-the-shoulder look - can't live without it!

If you like neutral colours you can just throw a pair of white jeans and a grey coat on and you're good to go.  Otherwise, wear it with black or blue jeans and black boots if you prefer darker colours.

 Have you found your favourite jumper for this season yet??

Love,

Laura xx

Have you heard of Freddie's Flowers?

Hi Guys!
Sorry I haven't been posting for a while. Been super busy since I came back from the summer holidays. Today's post is quite floral. I know we are going into winter but - who doesn't like flowers all year round? And if they can be fresh, local and seasonal the better!!!

A few weeks ago I was strolling around South Kensington, London, with my boyfriend looking for a good spot to have a little nibble for lunch as we saw this green bike with a basket full of fresh flowers attached to it. We stopped out of curiosity to see what was going on.

His name is Freddy and he owns this cool business that is all about delivering fresh, locally hand-picked flowers to your doorstep every Friday. Cool, huh? Keep reading.

The process to get a beautiful bouquet of flowers to bring life into your home is super easy. You can do it all online visiting their website or, if you are lucky enough to bump into their lovely decorated bike and friendly staff around London, you can do it right there and then.

Once you are all signed up and have made an account you can select what weeks you want to receive flowers and which weeks you don't . No compromise at all! There is some weeks where I have preferred not to receive them - whether because I have been away on holidays or because I just have decided it that way. 

You might be asking yourself how you can find out what the flowers will look like every week. Well, each week the website will be updated with a picture and a description of the next week's flowers. Then you can decide whether you want to tick the box and receive a nice flower delivery on that week or whether you'd rather pass and wait for another week flower type.

This was my first delivery. The flowers are all handpicked on the same morning before they get delivered. They arrive nicely packed inside this brown box and next to some tips on how to arrange the bouquet and a little description about each type of flower that is in the box. You also get two sachets of flower food, so your beautiful flowers can look fresh for days!!

Beautiful right? Here is some of the flowers I got on my second week.

Pastel Sunrise in Cantik swimwear

C Λ N T I K | meaning 'beautiful' in Bahasa Indonesian, is for the free spirited sun seeker and lover of all things beautiful and exciting. A luxury swimwear line Inspired by Brazil, adventure and exotic locales, CΛNTIKSWIMWEAR symbolizes the strength and beauty of women all around the world. Designed on the shores of Sydney, Australia - made on the beautiful island of Bali, Indonesia.

That's how the brand describes itself, but I can't even begin to describe how that swimwear line feels agains the skin. The styles are double lined for extra comfort, soft feel and coverage. They have also been perfectly cut to fit a woman's figure and have been designed to flatter the most feminine body areas. Isn't that amazing? 

There is a wide range of colours to choose from for both bikinis and one-pieces. I couldn't help but surrender to the looks of the PALMS Byron One Piece. The style was sold out on the website for quite a long time and I was impatiently waiting until they got it restocked. It was literally love at first sight, definitely a summer holiday must have. I couldn't be any happier with it!

Keep up the good work Cantik swimwear, your line is truly inspiring.
