Hannah came over to shoot last week and we thought we'd try something different seeing as it was raining, so we gathered every plant within reachable distance and thought we'd kick it back indoors.
Admittedly, they're not the best photos I've ever shot but I do quite like the overall vibe.

I picked this top up on ASOS in an XS (I never buy anything in my actual size) and low and behold it was tiny, so unfortunately it's since gone back, but I'm keeping my eyes peeled for a bigger size as I think it's so cute and Realisation-esque.

In other news, I'm off to LA & Vegas next week so I'm getting mega excited for that. I'm planning on going content cray as I've been feeling a little bit uninspired in London lately so hopefully that'll give me the kick up the ass that I so desperately need.

some interior updates

Interiors Interiors Interiors Interiors Interiors Interiors Interiors Interiors Interiors Interiors

So, as I mentioned a while back in my updates post - I was putting some energy into updating my bedroom. I mean, I say this but to be honest it was more "buy new plants and upgrade some things". Either way, I'm happy so I thought I'd share it with you!

First up was to tackle the bed. Something about it being mine again meant it needed to be new, and what better way to celebrate but a new mattress? Eve kindly gifted me their double mattress and honestly (not spon) IT IS GREAT. I've struggled with back problems for years, and obviously my sleep is compromised because of my M.E and it's just an absolute delight to sleep on. I really do notice the difference when I stay away from home, even just for a night.
If the mattress is a bit out of your price range, they also offer a topper as well as pillows, so get comfy.

Next up, was some more/new plants. I counted about six months ago and I had thirty six. I think we're nearer to fifty now. Either way, I nabbed both these and these from Next as I really fancied some tall planters. I tend to pick plants up in local florists and markets, but if you aren't lucky enough to have any near you - head to Ikea! They always have good house plants that are fairly low maintenance. I'd totally steer clear from bloody ferns though. Look at the state of mine!

I also swapped out my 6ft rail for two of these from Ikea (not pictured) as I liked the idea of them being slightly more stylish and also allowing me to put all of my bags/expensive shoes etc on them.

I've always fancied some art but never really found much I liked. Cue these Henn Kim illustrations popping into my sights. I haven't chosen where to put them yet, so I've just propped them up in various places.

Next I'd like to get a new desk chair, as well as some more bits and bobs to make the room feel as 'me' as possible. I'm due to move early in the New Year so I think that'll be the time to refresh!

Shop a few bits I'm lusting after here:

a city guide: madrid

Madrid

So I recently decided to book a spontaneous three day trip to Madrid, with the new man in tow and while I wasn't really feeling asking him to shoot outfit pictures just yet, I had to produce a little city guide.
It was my second time in Madrid, and I have to admit that I wasn't overwhelmed the first time so I really researched different places this time and think I found a few gems.
Madrid Madrid

1. parque del retiro
Starting with an obvious one, but we naturally had to have a little wander around El Retiro park. It's full of beautiful grounds and has a huge lake (? or pond?) in the centre where you can hire little rowing boats. Overall a pretty romantic place to stroll around - plus there's loads of little cafes to stop for an ice cream...

2. room007 sol
The reason we ended up picking Madrid for our little break was actually due to an email from Room007 offering us a complimentary stay which was perfectly timed. Room007 is a hostel but with all of the amenities of a hotel. We had a private room which was v.important to me (I don't think I'm a sharing kind of girl!) with a cute little shower and toilet encased within. The room was pretty much brand new and super minimal with a cool Scandi vibe which I loved. Pretty much all you need for a few nights R&R. 
Worth mentioning we did have a few problems with our reservation (i.e. a receptionist came into our room at 4am thinking it was empty and woke us up!) but the hotel dealt with it professionally and all ended well so overall I totally recommend a stay!

3. platea
This was potentially my favourite place to visit - Platea is a beautifully decorated 'restaurant' for want of a better word, but with loads of different cuisines and two cocktail bars inside. The atmosphere was buzzing and the fact you're seated with a menu rather than having to trawl around ordering from different places was a total plus.
I went for pulled pork tacos which were amazzzing, while Mike had a steak because he literally always gets that.
We also sampled the bar on the entry level and it was fab. I had a gin Collins while Mike had a Negroni. He's a bar manager/mixologist guy by trade and says they were good - so there's your review!

4. chocolaterîa san gines
A CHURRO RESTAURANT THAT IS OPEN 24/7. Need I say more? You get a mug of chocolate. Go already.

5. roommate oscar terrace
As our hotel didn't have a pool, and the weather hit a ridiculous 35 degrees - we went on a search for somewhere we could chill out and have a dip. While Madrid does have various lidos, I had heard that they get very busy so we looked for something a little more private.
Roommate Oscar is a hotel in the town centre where you can pay €35 each to relax on their roof terrace, use their towels and be greeted with a glass of champagne on arrival. Totally worth it and a lovely space. Just a warning though, everything up here is really pricey so bare that in mind!
