With the holiday season swiftly approaching I got in the mood for various shades of green – hence the slightly christmas-tree-y look you see in this post.
The Nylon Sky necklace (a belated birthday present from my bestie) has actually become one of my favourite accessories. You should definitely check out the Nylon Sky online shop or, should you ever be in London, pay a visit to their booth at Sunday Up Market.
Pin It Now!
This lovely Deli on Broadway Market is likely to become my favourite local eatery a) because it's close to where I live (I just have to traverse London Fields and that's always a nice thing to do) and b) because besides delicious pastry, REAL bread and great snacks they serve yummy greek yoghurt with granola and homemade compote. Gotta have my greek yoghurt place, guys!
2. Labour and Wait
Under different circumstances (i.e. me not being a poor student) I would furnish our apartment with ALL Labour & Wait products. But for now we have to settle for just the blue enamel milk pot. It's a start..
3. Rosé colored eyeshadow
NARS | Grand Palais
I'm not very adventurous when it comes to eyeshadow. Up until now, I had exactly 1 (O-N-E ) shade to resort back to: Benefit's creamy 'Birthday Suit'. But when my friend Carolin gave me this NARS duo eyeshadow, I really fell in love with the rosé shade. Never thought this day would come. What's next? Blue?!
Apart from the great food and location (top floor of Dover Street Market – hint: that's NOT a market) I love coming here to read the magazines I can't afford to buy. Make sure to stop by if you're ever in London.
5. My Hamptons Maptote
Maptotes are a nice, playful alternative to all the grungy hipster canvas totes out there. Plus, everytime I carry my books to school in mine, it reminds me of the beautiful day I spend at the beach in Montauk last summer which already feels like a million years ago..
6. After Party
I sighted a stylist using this product the last time I went to a salon and thought: hmmm, that looks doable.. Now I am officially addicted.
7. Columbia Road Flower Market
Probably the best way to spend a Sunday afternoon is strolling down Columbia Road (after having had breakfast at L'eau à la Bouche, see above). Apart from the flower market there are plenty of cute little shops and cafés. And with a little bit of luck, you might even get to see Lily Cole..
A little reward from me to me for all the hard work I did for uni in the past weeks. I just love chunky sandals like these. And for those of you in the Northern hemisphere: They also work well with tights/socks.
