Who wouldn’t like to live in a brightly painted townhouse off of London’s infamous Portobello road? And armed with that car… well, you should know by now how I feel about the colour yellow…

BRUNCH OF THE MONTH: MAY

Cafe Noir Tel Aviv Brunch

When I arrived in Tel Aviv last weekend, the first thing I made sure we booked was brunch. After all, what is a weekend with no sourdough bread nor smashed avocado?

With Tel Aviv being one of the greatest foodie cities in the world, and given that I was with the expert of Tel Aviv dining herself (Leah is co-founder of website Telaveat – check it out for amazing eating-out inspiration), I was fully confident I would have an utterly yummy brunch – or three!

On a sunny Saturday morning, Café Noir was bustling with both tourists and locals. I played it safe and opted for Shakshuka, a traditional Israeli dish. While I had no complaints – with a spicy kick and soft baked eggs the shakshuka really is delicious –  I envied the table next to us that all indulged in Cafe Noir’s “Israeli breakfast”. With 2 eggs any style, tomato and cucumber salad, tahini feta and olives chesse and a bread basket with butter and jam, it looked the real weekend deal.

Café Noir, I’ll be back for that! 

BEACH BUM

I’m not a big fan of shopping for the hot weather. I struggle to find shorts I like and feel comfortable wearing (if they don’t cover both cheeks, what’s the point?) and I’ve never owned a proper beach bag. I’m happiest when donning skinny’s, an oversized jumper and a bright coloured clutch. That said, last summer I found this jewel of a jumpsuit and I’m still obsessed. It is my go-to beach outfit; it has a “hippy beach chick” vibe, it’s comfy and though I hate the word practical when it comes to clothes, it totally is. Strictly beach attire, it is the perfect piece to throw on over a bikini and absolutely beats that whole six inch heels in the sand look that I just won’t ever understand!

What are your holiday beachwear essentials?

My best friend Leah lives in Israel and this weekend Phoebe and I came to surprise her. These past few weeks I’ve had to resist sharing my crazy feelings of excitement with you on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and I have to admit, it’s not been easy (how lame is that?!)

But the look of utter shock on her face when she saw us coming through the departure gate made all the secrecy absolutely worth it. Spending the weekend being a beach bum and catching up with my lovely friend that I don’t get to see nearly enough has been amazing and I can’t wait to tell you more about a great weekend spent in the great city Tel Aviv!

It’s been the best.

I hope nobody has the Sunday blues as bad as I do!

bank holiday monday

Bank Holiday Monday was spent revelling in the sunshine, devouring a picnic spread that could have fed a football team and playing a very noisy and competitive game of Articulate (…and learning that I have terrible terrible general knowledge).

How did you spend the Bank Holiday?

Champneys Spa Tring

A couple of weeks ago Mum and I escaped for some peace and quiet. Armed with gym gear, swimwear, pyjamas and little else, we headed off to Champneys Tring for the night to spend two days dressed in their signature cuddly white robes and matching slippers.

I am so SO excited about my new Pom Pom plimsolls. So excited in fact that I threw them on with no socks just minutes after their arrival just as I was running out of the house. A whole trip into London later and the backs of my feet are red sore and in need of an ice bath, badly.

Luckily my fashion philosophy tells me there is no pain without gain when it comes to shoes and at least now they are well worn in!

But should you be thinking of purchasing (and you so should, they are my new favourites), I recommend some time to wear them in before going off galavanting! I already can’t wait for more outfit posts with my new shoes. What do you think?

P.S I finally have a Quirky Chicken Facebook page! Do check it out clicking this link here
