Lunch at Caffe L'eto

caffe l'eto soho london matcha iced tea

There's a place in London that does good matcha. I repeat; there is a place in London that does good matcha. 

That's basically my life goal, find restaurants that don't massacre one of my favourite ingredients. 

I was introduced to this gem of a spot by Cherie, who was lovely enough to treat me to a birthday lunch when I was down in London for the Blogosphere Tea Party. Caffe L'eto in Soho was, unsurprisingly, busy; but anywhere that manages to do a decent matcha beverage can be as busy as it wants as long as it serves me food.

Things you need to know about your year abroad

hongdae seoul - things you need to know about your year abroad
So Imii wrote a post - that I connected with on a deep and personal level - about her experiences on her year abroad in Paris, and how it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows and macarons and the Eiffel Tower, but it was also the best experience of her life. It's a fab read, I highly recommend. It also resonated strongly with me as my own experiences in Seoul, as well of many of my classmates, were remarkably similar. 

For all our spouting about how fab years, studies, or placements abroad are - no one ever really talks about the tough side of it. Once the gloss is peeled off and you get into the nitty-gritty of actually living there, once you've seen all the tourist spots and settled into more of a routine than wide-eyed excitement at almost bloody everything, when it starts to feel more like real life and less like a holiday - no one really talks about that.

A Little Bit Alice

how to style a risky dress

Taking inspiration from one of my favourite characters today. I do love a good blue and white combo, and something about pastel blue dresses instantly makes me feel like Alice.

Mid-August Wishlist

mid-august summer autumn new season wishlist uk fashion blogger
Wow it's been a long time since a wishlist. Or it feels that way, if you consider 'long time' only relevant as a marker if it's been over a year. But with that 'new season' tingly feeling starting to thrum around the fashion world I thought I'd collect a few of the things I've been eyeing up recently into a coherent post. 

It's a bit of mix though, some summer things you can still snap up and hope september is more 'summery' than we've had throughout the whole of June, July and August, along with some bits and pieces that are definitely looking more towards Autumn and the colder months.
