Weekly Favourites # 32

This week has been a scorcher in London so I made the most of sunbathing either in London's beautiful parks, such as Green Park and St James', or sunning myself at Brockwell Lido. On Tuesday I met up with Jude and Selina and we shopped down Oxford Street where I bought some beautiful bikinis from Victoria's Secret. We then spent the afternoon sunning ourselves before walking through the parks home. The girls made sure we swung by Buckingham Palace as they couldn't believe that I had never seen it before! We also made sure we stopped off at the very lovely The Thomas Cubitt in Belgravia for a glass or two of wine, if you are in the area I would definitely stop here as the food looked incredible too! Wednesday and Thursday were spent at one of London's outdoor swimming pools: Brockwell Lido, with Selina and Kat. Although busy we managed to secure a spot for ourselves and the cool water ensured we never got too uncomfortable in the blazing sunshine. On Wednesday evening Selina and I relaxed on her balcony with wine and popcorn before heading to a friends for a lovely BBQ.

On Friday I met my parents at the Royal Academy to see the Summer Exhibition again and the Dennis Hopper: The Lost Album Exhibition. Both of which were excellent and well worth the trip. We then met my boyfriend and tried Vinoteca as I have only been once before and the staff we so lovely I have always wanted to go back. Vinoteca Soho is an excellent wine bar that also serves delicious food for an affordable price. The staff definitely know there stuff when it comes to the wine and are eager to help you with you selections. We were all so impressed with out food and I will definitely be heading back there soon. 

This weekend my brother Bill came home and we celebrated his new job with delicious food and wine. It was another excellent week although now the weather is starting to cool I am not sure how long my lovely new tan will last!

Favourite post: If you have been reading these weekly posts then you will know I have finally got the whole gym thing! Unfortunately as I am on holiday for most of August I have frozen it for a month but for this week I have found the blog Em Talks really inspirational for food and fitness tips. She has a gorgeous figure and gives very honest and helpful tips. She also does lots of fashion and beauty so definitely check her blog out!

Hope you have all had a good week too!
