Pizza East, Portobello Road

Yes, I know, the quality of these pictures is not really up to "blogging-standards", but I just had to tell you about my dinner last Thursday. My friend booked 11 places at Pizza East, 10 pm. It was the only time available, so we arrived to the restaurant with high expectations and growling tummies.

OPI collection

My favourite nail polishes in my collection are definitely the OPI polishes. I like them because they dry fast, the colours are special and most of all because they don't start to become all droopy after a few months (which, unfortunately, my Essie polishes tend to do). My OPI collection is not very big but I really like every colour. If you're looking for a new nail polish, take a look at OPI, there's an infinite choice colours.

Recipe: warm red quinoa and kale salad

When it's cold and rainy outside, I want to have something more comforting than a simple salad for lunch. I've found the perfect solution: a warm red quinoa salad with kale and halloumi. A steamy hot meal, which is quick, easy and healthy (my favourite combo as uoi may know by now)

Halloween inspiration

Every year, when it's time for Halloween, I never feel very inspired to do something original. But with a bit of make-up you can make the coolest halloween looks, without even having to buy a whole costume. On Youtube found the most original looks, so I'm showing you my top 5 today. 

Givenchy Antigona

I did it. About two weeks ago, I finally bought the Antigona (medium grainy leather) I've had been loving ever since I laid eyes on it in 2011. I think it's the most beautiful bag ever and I'm so happy with it!

Last week was all about Frieze, a huge art fair in Regent's park. My friend Isabel took me to the opening day of Frieze on Wednesday (check out her pictures), and on Thursday I took my boyfriend to Frieze Masters. My favourite was definitely Frieze Masters, with its more upscale feel, and the incredible works each gallery exposed. Frieze had a cooler and younger vibe, and definitely won on the food aspect. I took some snaps to give you a feel of Frieze and Frieze Masters.

Nike x Liberty

I haven't been a huge fan of the past Nike x Liberty collections, but the new collection has really caught my attention. Despite having only 3 styles - Dunk, Roshe Run and Air Revolution - I love the Liberty prints they used, which is one of their signature paisley prints. I don't see myself wearing Air Max trainers just yet, but I really love the prints and colours of these and I wish they had brought out more styles. But these are definitely the coolest Air Max trainers I've ever seen. 
Find them here and here.

Yoghurt berry breakfast smoothie

Being back in London means making breakfast smoothies again. I've been making several different versions this week and one of my favourites was oat-banana-milk-almond butter-cinnamon. This morning I made one which I liked even more, so I though I'd share the recipe. I also love to drink my smoothies from these fancy-looking glasses from Zara home; it makes my breakfast feel a little more special. 

- 1 banana
- 1 handful of frozen berries
- 4 spoonfulls of blueberry yoghurt 
- a dash of unsweetened almond milk

Blend, pour in a fancy glass and enjoy :)

You can also add a handful of oats to make it more filling, but I had this with a cup of tea and toast with almond butter; the perfectly balanced breakfast!

The best Monday

On Sunday my boyfriend texted me "Tomorrow, dinner reservation at 9, I'll pick you up at 8.30". I love surprises, so my Monday felt a whole lot better than usual. When I got home after uni, I spent some time getting ready and deciding what to wear. In the end, I went for a black silk shirt, high waisted black jeans, my new heels from Zara and some simple gold jewelry. For the occasion I also wore my Burberry coat for the first time, which I love very much.

New in: Primark goodies

The last few days have been a little busy but now I can finally say I've settled into my new London home. I don't have wifi yet so I still won't be blogging every day - soon hopefully! Today I had the time to do some shopping for home essentials, but I also needed some warm pyjama pants so I headed to Primark. I picked up a few things which I wanted to show you..

I ♥ fall

Summer is over, time for a new season. These are some of the reasons why I love fall: 
Baby pumpkins // scented candles // coffee + cinnamon buns with friends // the perfect weather for running in the park, semi-cloudy with a little breeze // cuddling with my kittens (I wish they were in London!) // Halloween // finally wearing my fall/winter clothes again // a brand new pot of Brazil Nut body butter from TBS // appreciating the last sunny days // starting to look forward to Christmas (am I too early?)

I'm also loving the fact I'm moving into my new London home tomorrow, I really can't wait to set up my room and make it a home

Wardrobe essential: the leather jacket

There's one item that I consider as a wardrobe essential, but which might not be obvious to everyone: the leather jacket. It's so versatile, perfect for during the day, the evening, a night out or a quick errand. Leather wears out beautifully and softens the more you wear it. I just couldn't live without my leather jackets. I have most definitely over-worn the one I bought last winter and I'm sure I'll wear it tons more this fall. 
Blogger inspo from Stylight
On Stylight you can get tons of inspiration from bloggers who upload pictures of their outfits. The great thing about this platform is that bloggers link the items from their outfits to online shops so you can find what you're looking for right away. It's like an Tumblr and online shop all in one! I found these beauties:

RiRi Hearts MAC collection

In three days MAC is bringing out yet another desirable limited edition collection, this time with Rihanna. The cool rose gold packaging makes me want to have the whole collection! I'll definitely have a little look at the eyeshadow quads, bronzer/blush duo and the super popular matte red Riri Woo lipstick.

Gordon Ramsay Plane Food

I love everything about traveling, except for one thing: plane food. I dread it. Gordon Ramsay saw this as an opportunity and started a restaurant at Heathrow where you can have a lovely meal but where you can also buy good plane picnics, finally. A Ceasar salad, followed by smoked Scottish salmon and topped off with a cheesecake. Yes, you can actually eat this on the plane now!
