Brunch, that lovely word that allows you to indulge with breakfast delights even in the early afternoon and as well to drink mimosas before 12! Walking around my beloved Fulham, I came across this little restaurant Manuka Kitchen.

Constantly I’m looking up to the people I’m surrounded by, and how in very different ways they inspire all the time. I would like to introduce you to some of them, and invite you to see their work and what they are up to at the moment. Firstly, I would like to introduce you to …

Talking About: Car Boot Sale

October 12, 2015

London is a wonderful place with hidden treasures in every corner. Some are free, some costs £5 and some… lets not get into that. I love to wonder around London when I have the time to do so during the weekends, and in this case we ended up taking part at the Car Booth Sale in Kings Cross. We had to pay a small fee to enter but, it was totally worth it.

Places like these always hide wonders, as any flee market would do, but this time, the exhibitors are curated, so they are all pretty amazing and to top that, most of the displays were on or around antique vehicles, having the owners dressed up in coordinating outfits with the fashion of the time.

Some displays are more “out there” than others, but they are all wonderful!

So if you come across a flea market or a car booth sale don’t hesitate to swing by, as it is a great place to find inspiration, some lovely food from the trucks to enjoy the last days of “warm” days.

As any day in London, the weather is something you can never fully prepare for. Although it was sunny and kind of “warm” I couldn’t contain myself and wore black and white.  I wore my little black dress from Zara, which is a must in every girls wardrobe, I paired it with a white shirt …
