Weekly Favourites # 22

Where has the lovely sunny weather gone? I am writing this watching the rain pour and I hate it. Bring back the sunshine and picnics in the park! Fortunately there were sunny moment on our school trip to Hampton Court. It is such a gorgeous place and wandering around the gardens makes me so happy! Apart from that this hasn't been an overly busy week for me. On Friday I went with the girls to Dalston to the Night Tales event and the Street Food Market. We were far too early for the Night Tales, which took place in an empty warehouse / unit. The theme was Peruvian with Pisco Sours, Tequilla and street food such as Cerviche and hot chicken skewers being sold. There was a cool dance floor downstairs and tables to sit and drink at upstairs. Although we loved it there we did start to get very hungry so popped across to the legendary food market. I absolutely love this place. It is half inside and outside and crammed full of tables, bars and pop up restaurants. You could stay there all day and work your way around all the different cuisines. There are giant fires everywhere to keep you warm and a really fun atmosphere. I just wish I had taken a good camera with me so I could dedicate a whole blog post to it! I ended up having an incredible lobster roll followed by a pulled beef burger, with truffle mayo and a brioche bun. I love my burgers and this did not disappoint! We then headed back to the Night Tales to dance off our food! 

On Saturday I went home to help my mum rearrange some furniture in the house and to relax with amazing food and wine. I am now back in London feeling very full and naughty but looking forward to the fact it is now half term!

Posts this week have included: EcoTool Brushes // Joint in Brixton Village // NARS Contouring Palatte in Paloma

Favourite post: I have been loving wearing my hair in the halo / milkmaid plaits and I definitely think the best tutorial I have watched is Suzy from Hello October. It is so easy to copy, even if you have mid length hair like me! Watch her video here

Favourite product: I am in love with the contouring palatte from NARS, which is mentioned above. It makes the whole process quick and easy and I have no idea what I did before I got my mitts on this product! 

Hope you have all had a good week too!
