Tenerife 2018

Last month I was able to head to my home island of Tenerife. I love how it's more affordable to visit from London, and it was so nice to catch up with my friends. I even visited some of my old teachers from school. The weather held up well, despite the cold weeks they were having. I am hoping I will be able to go back again this Summer. Above are some shots from my visit.

Who else is happy January is on it's way out? Although the weather has been an improvement from previous years spent in Slovakia and Austria, it hasn't exactly been tropical (my kind of weather). I have been living in jumpers, and battling cold after cold. This colour combination is one of my favourites, and I do love a good neutral on neutral. This outfit was incredibly cosy, and I wore it to cycle around London (along with a coat, of course!). 

How has the first month of 2018 been for you?

If you know me personally, then you know my style has always been very classic. Tweed pretty much sums that up. I really, really love it and to be honest when it comes to the high street, Zara really does it best. Hence why it's probably the only shop I can't walk past without going in!

This past month, I have been focusing a lot of energy into making my house a home. It's such a joy to buy a piece here and there and see the difference it makes, and the excitement it brings. Things as small as putting up hooks and a shoe rack when you first walk in,  have made such a difference! It really does do a lot for your happiness to make the most of the small things. 

This weekend, my plan is to get the Christmas tree and decorations up, including lights. My neighbours have been putting me to shame, all the homes are so beautifully lit. Definitely a perk I didn't see coming about living in the UK again. 

I hope your weekend is going well, and the gift wrapping isn't too intense :)

Burgundy and Blue

I love the blue and burgundy combination here, and the mixture of textures. This checked coat has gotten so much use, and I have only had it a couple of months or less. It's a great piece for the wardrobe, and adds something extra to an otherwise easily boring winter outfit. 

This weekend has been really nice and low key. Next week I am looking forward to having a few days off and meeting a good friend in London at the weekend, who is flying in for a couple of days. Also have you put up your Christmas decorations yet? Seeing as I just moved back to the UK, I don't have any decorations yet, but I can't wait to start on it! My neighbourhood is already looking very festive, and I feel guilty for not contributing yet. 

Burgundy in Autumn

I managed to go home to Austria at the perfect time, with all the beautiful Autumn colours in full swing. I originally bought this dress to wear to my friends wedding in Northern Ireland, but have quickly realised just how versatile it is. Day to night to business, it works for all occasions. All you need to change is how you style it. 

This weekend I was working, so I have had today off. Last week I spent a night in Central London with my boyfriend, and we visited Leicester square which already had a Christmas market set (which very much reminded me of Austria!) and then we tried Bubba Gump Shrimp, it was ridiculously good. Also, being that I grew up in Tenerife, churros are something I have missed out on over the years. If you are in London or nearby, I highly recommend the churro place near Bayswater station, and I rather think I may go again as soon as I get the chance!
