Under the roses. Behind the ivy wall.

Recently in Barcelona the temperature has really dropped, which quickly reminded me 
of England. 
When I left England I was very excited at the thought of leaving - like anywhere when you stay for too long. After moving around the country and then finally to London, I felt like my time in England was coming to an end. 
 But as the saying goes, "You don't know what you had, until it's gone." 
Today, I have suddenly realised how I actually miss that freshness in the air, the magical misty 
mornings, the greenery, forests, lush gardens, the rain (yes, the rain) and randomly, the supermarkets. 
What I would do for a Waitrose or M&S ready meal right now... Anyone who doesn't
come from England, youtube a Marks & Spencer food advert and you'll understand. The other day someone told me that British food has a bad reputation? I think they have been going to the wrong places haha!
Anyways, nostalgia over. 
Here is a super cool outfit which would be perfectly suited to a lunch in a beautiful garden restaurant 
(as I was imagining!)

Lazy Sundays

Lazy Sundays

| Top -  Biyan, Netaporter | Shorts - Custom Levis, Etsy | Heels - ASOS | 

Today I am going to attempt to do as little as humanly possible.
I will dedicate today to my unmade bed, delicious food and maybe a breezy ride on the back of a motorbike.
Sundays are my favourite day of the week...

Take me to Paris

One day in Paris

| Underwear set - Topshop |

| Stripe top - Topshop | Skirt - Farfetch | Pumps - Zara |
| Pearls - Tiffany & Co. | Bag - Zara | Sunglasses - Zara | Lipgloss - Nars |
| Waterproof eyeliner - Debenhams | Paris skyline umbrella - Umbrellaheaven | 

Paris, the city of Romance. I have never been and really want to visit!
I have heard many great things about the city and have met many Parisians - most of them crazy, all of them stylish.
I think this outfit would be perfect for Paris- had to include the Paris skyline umbrella. Very cool.
I can imagine myself strolling around the beautiful streets wearing this, then taking a break to enjoy a lazy coffee in a quaint, picture perfect cafĂ©.
This Topshop underwear set is very ooh la la. Hiding this under the unsuspecting outfit would make Paris proud. Take me to Paris now...

Sex, drugs & rock 'n roll

Groupie love

| Fur vest - Topshop | Leather skirt - Mango | Lace top - Target | Heels - Topshop |
| Earcuff - Accessorize | Sunglasses - Moscot | Flower headband - Modcloth |

I love this outfit. Rock & roll style just always looks effortlessly cool.
All these pieces are so versatile and easy to wear, this look is more of an evening outfit but could easily be dressed down with a pair of flat ankle boots. 
I thought the rock & roll lifestyle would be the lifestyle for me... Until I decided to move to Ibiza. The world's party island, where madness is the norm and reality is non-applicable. 
No, it wasn't rock music and no, I did not turn into a groupie but wohhhh was it an intense experience.
I honestly do not know how people can keep this lifestyle up for years on end. 
The highs, the lows, the insane, crazy and plain weird events and characters that you meet along the way, would just not happen in everyday life. 
When I finally left Ibiza, armed with two suitcases too heavy for their own good, 300euros left to my name and a dog with one eye...(long story) - via what turned out to be an eight hour ferry/party boat, complete with DJ's, gogo dancers and a mass of people who wanted to get very very drunk, I felt exhausted
But at the end of it all, lying on a sun lounger slowly watching the island shrink into the distance and welcoming the vast glimmering ocean ahead, I was smiling cheekily inside (at that point even my face muscles could not muster a smile.) I had given my entire summer to the whirlwind of magical mania that is rock & roll. And was it worth it... Most definitely, yes.
