Stepping Into Summer Like...

Leave a Comment
Tomorrow it's the 1st of June, which means we are one day closer to Summer and I couldn't be blimmin' happier! I spend the entire Autumn and Winter mourning Summer and dressing like I'm heading to a funeral (as my Mum kindly reminds me everytime I step foot outside the house) and count down the days till I'm back in my beloved dresses and sandals.

I definitely feel like my style thrives in Summer and am a basic biatch for the rest of the year, so when it comes to Summer, there's only one way I like to stand out...and that's with my shoes! I don't know what it is about Summer shoes, but I have a seriously worrying lack of self control. I have an embarrassing collection of sandals and summer heels, but yet I still find myself obsessing over a new pair every week and always find my fingers walking themselves to the 'Shoes' section on asos...gets me everytime!

So I thought I'd put together a little wish list which I've currently got going on in my ever-growing online baskets to give you some shoespiration (is that a word?) to liven up that Summer shoedrobe this year!

*WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR FINANCIAL DAMAGE * 

ASOS HITCH A RIDE LACE UP MULES  - £45

ASOS TIARA FLATFORM ESPADRILLES - £32

ZARA CONTAST WEDGES - £50

ZARA WEDGES WITH CROSS-OVER STRAPS - £40

KURT GEIGER EMBROIDERED WEDGE SANDAL - £120

ASOS POM POM WEDGE SANDAL - £45

ASOS TOOT TOOT CHUNKY PLATFORM SANDAL - £45

KURT GEIGER EMMIE LILAC 3D FLOWER SANDALS - £85

ZARA CROSSOVER METALLIC SANDALS - £40

And there we have it...the shoes I am lusting over this month. 

As you can see, I got a whole lotta love for mules and platforms!

Berlin Photo Diary: Day 3

Leave a Comment


On our last day (sob), we headed out for a spot of brunch in Kreuzberg - the land of fab brunches.
After chickening out of trying the German mixed platter (told you I'm pathetic with foreign foods), I played it safe and went for a gouda cheese & prosciutto ham toasted sandwich and although it was definitely not the most German thing I could have tried, it was delish.


After our brunch stop, it was time to do some hardcore museum-ing before we flew back to London that evening. After cramming in all our sightseeing on the Saturday, Sunday left us time to properly explore Berlin's history - and my god there's a lot of it!

We headed to the Checkpoint Charlie Museum first, which although interesting, left us feeling a tad overwhelmed with information and wasn't really worth the €13 entrance fee. 
The Topographie des terrors museum where we headed afterwards was so much better...and even better, it's FREE!




The Topographie de terrors museum was bone chilling. Not the most pleasant of reads, it documents the build up to the Second World War in chronological order, documenting all the monstrous activities of the Nazi's and of Hitler himself. 
Although extremely unpleasant to read and deeply upsetting, I highly recommend it and am glad I got the opportunity to go. 






After walking around both museums for hours, we were all museumed out and spent the rest of the afternoon strolling the streets of Berlin, where we finally found one of Berlin's infamous photobooths! 

(Please please please can we have these London?!)



After hogging the Photobooth for a good 40 minutes and pissing off all the Germans, we headed back to Kreuzberg to grab our bags to begrudgingly head to the airport. BUT....not before a cheeky stop off at Burgermeister! 
We had been so excited to try the famous Burgermeister burger all weekend and saved it for our final day for a final blowout and GOOD LORD it did not disappoint! Check out my review of this juicy beast here 



And that was that, another trip ticked off that ever-growing bucket list & the trigger of the worst holiday blues I have ever had!

Until next time...

Berlin Photo Diary: Day 2

Leave a Comment
After an absolute fail of an attempt of catching the sightseeing bus around Berlin on our first day, it was time for take 2 on Saturday, with a very unwelcome companion in the form of a monster hangover in tow. We started the bus tour at East Side Gallery and hopped on and off the 2 tours, to visit Berlin's most famous sights. 

As cheesy and as touristy as they are, the sightseeing buses really are the best way to see the whole city, especially one as big as Berlin. We hopped (I say hopped, I mean dragged our sorry hungover asses off) the bus at  The Brandenburg Tor, The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and The Reichstag Building before finishing the tour of Berlin off by scoffing our faces with currywurst and beer by the Brandenburg Tor.
