Favourite Tapas Pincho Since I tried tapas in Barcelona I didn’t believe that I’ll find something as much as good in London. But I was wrong. Pinch, Mediterranean tapas bar, is at the end of the row of quaint little shops and pubs that lines Church Street in Twickenham.

With big outdoor seating space, Pincho seems to be full every weekend for lunch and dinner.
We opted for chorizo a la blanch with flaming brandy,chicken skewers ,pork belly,damon croquettes and patatas bravas . It was so delicious it felt like we are back in Barcelona.Which wasn’t surprising because we found out that chef is actually from Barcelona 🙂

Favourite Burger

Kua’Aina

I don’t eat hamburgers,I’m usually  chicken person 🙂  But when I tried this one at Kua’Aina in Soho I was amazed. This is a small Hawaiian restaurant but really famous.It literally feels like you are on one of Hawaiian beaches.And  apparently President Obama loves these burgers.

Everything on the menu looks delicious but I chose cheeseburger with fries an Rose lemonade.

They also serve pancakes which I heard are some of the lightest, most delicate-tasting pancakes in London.

I would definitely recommend this for your next meal 🙂

Kua Aina, 26 Foubert’s Place, London, W1F 7PP

Favourite Book

Girl on the Train

This is one of those you books you can’t stop thinking about it long time after you finish it. Actually it makes you really said that you finished it already because what you going to do with your life now 😀 Anyway , book is amazing! It’s about a girl named Rachel who catches the same commuter train every morning.And everyday train stops at the same place because of signal failure so every day she can watch the same couple breakfasting in their garden.She started to feel like she knows them.She even named them Jess and Jason.They seem like perfect couple until one morning when Rachel sees something shocking…

Anyway if you didn’t start reading it know. Commuting to work will never be the same for you 🙂

Favourite Trend

High weist shorts

I don’t know why but I like high waist shorts more then trousers. I feel so comfortable in it. It’s a shame that in London I don’t have much chance to wear them but that didn’t stop me to buy few because you never know. You can wear them with almost everything,shirts,crop tops,t shirt,heels or flats…

Probably the best person to get inspiration have to wear this trend is Taylor Swift

Favourite Tapas

La Pepita

I’m tapas monster 🙂 Even in London I want to have tapas every week. So first thing I did when we arrived to Barcelona was to ask our hosts were is the best tapas place. They recommended La Pepita ,small but lovely restaurant and bar in Gràcia. It was the best tapas I ever had!  From patatas bravas,croquettes to Spanish ham and even fried egg with crisps…everything was amazing.

After delicious dinner we ordered dessert which was definitely something that I didn’t know it exist – Corn Ice Cream with Popcorns and Raspberries. Surprisingly it was delicious just like everything .Good thing is it not too busy and guest are mostly Spanish so you can be sure it’s good 🙂  I would recommend everyone to go there when they visiting Barcelona

Favourite Place

Barcelona is now definitely my favourite city and everything is so nice there but the most amazing thing is Montjuic. I can’t even decide when it’s better ,during the day when the view is amazing or during the night when the lights and colours of fountain are amazing. And it’s so romantic

Favourite Shopping

Like a real Zara fan only thing I was thinking is Zara. And I have to say it’s much better than London Zara. It’s much bigger with much more choice(they say better quality as well). Mango,Stradivarius,Pull&Bear and Bershka are everywhere. Literally everywhere. Best part for shopping spree is Passeig de Gràcia where you can choose from high street brand to exclusive designer stores.

If you are weird and you are not into clothes 😉 there is a amazing colour coordinated market ,famous La Boqueria . Everything is fresh and delicious . It’s good that I had breakfast before,otherwise I would buy everything 🙂

Blake Lively and The Age Of Adeline

adaline

Since Serena and Gossip Girl I adore Blake Lively style. She’s endless source of inspiration and she always looks amazing. When she was pregnant she had probably the best ever seen expecting -mother-style .

Currently,the new mother,who gave birth to daughter James in December,is promoting her new movie The Age Of Adeline in New York and she keeps impressing with her outfit choices.

It’s already known that Blake Lively is some sort of superhuman when it comes to style. But no one knew that she can change her outfit between media appearances in lightning speed. She changed 9 outfits in less than 24 hours, 7 before noon!

In ‘The Age of Adaline’, Blake Lively plays a woman who has not aged for nearly eight decades. While it may seem like everyone’s dream, her character, Adaline Bowman, lives a life on the run, not allowing anyone to get close to her. Movie looks promising,and Blake is stunning  in every decade

But Zoe’s style isn’t the only one I like on the show.There is a Lemon Breeland who is great example for ladylike dressing.She wears pastels and nudes,embroideries and lace,glitter and quirky prints and she’s paying lots of attention to accessories.

The show is wrapped up last week and I’ll definitely miss it,not just because of great story and relaxing atmosphere,but also because amazing style inspiration

Gingham Trend Alert

MTI4Njg2ODc3MTUzNzY2MDE5

We all remember Dorothy from Wizard of Oz and her blue dress. Well believe it or not that dress is big trend this season!After plaid domination here comes Gingham style!I have to admit I like this one more because it’s more ladylike,reminds me of a sunny day and tea partys in the gardens 🙂 maybe it’s hard for you to imagine how would something that looks like grandma kitchen cloth could possible look good on you,designer managed to redesign it to look great. According to Diana von Furstenberg, Michael Kors and Oscar de la Renta this is  pattern of the season.

MTI4Njg2OTk5NTYwMzE4OTQ2

I will choose gingham shirt or dress but for those little more braver there are blazers,trousers or bags

What happens when Instagram meats good old polaroid prints?

Polargram!

I’m obsessed with Instagram,and I admit ,my food,coffee and friend suffer because of that so I was so delighted when I came across Polargram. I’m sure there is loads of websites like this but I’m really happy with Polargram(maybe because they sent my sweetie with my order 🙂 )

You can order 12 for £6, 24 for £9 and 48 for £12. The website also offers Instagram prints on canvases and in frames, which would both make lovely gifts.

No,I didn’t go to Coachella but I’m in that kind of mood I guess. So I was buying things that I don’t really need at the moment. It was hard to find this top because it was sold out on H&M website soon after they reviled collection H&M loves Coachella

Favourite Hair product

Tresemmé Perfectly (Un)done

As you may have noticed I’m a big fan of Tresemme,all products are great,solving all my hair problems. Now when my hair is untangled finally I wanted to do something about my too straight hair! I know,lots of girls would kill to have straight hair without fighting with hair straightener but you now,you always want what you don’t have . Even though there is whole collection Perfectly undone at the moment I’m using just a foam and hairspray. So basically this collection is created to help you achieve effortless summer wavy hair. It’s for those women who already have wavy hair to help them  style it easier and for those who have straight hair like me
