EAT.

I'm pretty excited about today's post, as EAT. is one of my favourite lunch pit-stops. This time me friend and I visited the Southbank branch, which is definitely my favourite branch, when the sun is shining there is nothing better than sitting outside of EAT. In London, it can be hard to stay healthy whilst walking around, as you have a whole array of choice, and sometimes you feel overwhelmed at the choice. If you are looking to get a filling lunch, but still want to keep it clean, then I would highly recommend EAT. The hardest part about my experience in EAT., was choosing what to have. The menu is amazing, and it all looks so delicious. They do salads, sandwiches, soups, noodles, hot food and much, much more. 

After uhming and ahing for a good, let's call it 5 minutes (realistically, 20 minutes) I finally decided to go with the Falafel and Hummus salad. I'd never had Falafel before, but I was up for trying it. My report. It did not disappoint. Just looking at the salad makes my mouth water, the flavour combinations were remarkable. It was one of those dishes, where the tastes contrast but work together, creating an unforgettable meal. And it was all so healthy. If you aren't into salads, then my friend got a pulled-pork burger, which smelt divine. 

Believe it or not, this post is not sponsored by EAT. unfortunately, nonetheless I highly recommend visiting an EAT. if you are ever strolling by, you won't regret it.

I hope you liked this post, if your interested in more posts about what I got up to in Southbank, stay tuned as they will be out very soon. Thanks for reading,

London Street Style

Again, in this outfit I wanted to show you guys how great the colder months are. The reason I say this, is because I feel like you can totally create a whole different style, from merely changing the way you layer clothing. If you read my Transitional Outfit post, you will notice that I am wearing my beloved denim jacket. If you compare that outfit with this one, you can see a dramatic difference. This outfit too me looks a lot more seasonal, and autumnal. Patterns are always in during the Autumn/Winter months, so wearing any type of pattern is a good way to stay stylish. To achieve that look, I layered my check shirt from Topman, over my heavy denim jacket, also from Topman. 

I love the way this outfit looks, as to me it's very seasonally appropriate, but doesn't look trendy, and as a result, it wont (hopefully) go out of style. I generally like to keep away from trends, as that way my wardrobe becomes much more versatile.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post, let me know your go to autumnal pieces! Thanks for reading,

Nik

The Best Value Juice Stop

Finding a good value juice place is never easy. Unfortunately I am one of those people that, (stupidly) I am willing to pay ridiculous prices, for something that can be bought a lot cheaper. You may have caught onto the fact that my local cities, are Bath and Bristol. Unfortunately I don't know of any juice bars in either of these Cities (if you do, do let me know!), so whenever I come across a juice bar, I jump at the opportunity. 

As I was visiting Greenwich market (post coming soon...), I was becoming rather tired and wanted a pick me up. Instantly I thought coffee but, again unfortunately I can't drink coffee, as the caffeine makes me jittery...therefore I settled on a juice. I haven't explored Greenwich much, but I had heard of a place called Turnips, which is basically a fruit and veg stall, that sell fresh juice. Turnips is amazing.

The reason I am so impressed with Turnips, is because of the whole array of freshly squeezed juices they have on offer. You can see the Baristas making the juices fresh! It's so lovely. As you can tell by the pictures, the juices aesthetically look amazing, a colourful array of natural goodness. I went for the Watermelon juice, and oh my goodness. Wow. I was so impressed, I went back to get the Cucumber and Mint Lemonade, which was so refreshing. If you are ever planning a trip to London, make sure you stop off at Greenwich market, for the juice place alone, you won't regret it.

If you know of any cool juice bars in you area, let me know! Thank you for reading,

White Horse Street Outfit

On this particular occasion, a friend and I decided we would take a stroll around Hyde Park. We somehow ended up in White Horse Street. Again, for some reason, I found the name of this street very interesting, so as any blogger would do, decided to have my picture taken next to it. It was one of those days where the weather was very unpredictable, and whatever you decided to wear, would have been the wrong choice. Therefore I tried to play safe, and went for the warmth.

Recently I picked up this tartan shirt from Topman, which I have fallen in love with. I feel like I've picked it up at the perfect time as well, as tartan and prints in general, always become a staple throughout Autumn/Winter. Topman, in my opinion, are at their best during Autumn/Winter, as throughout the summer I feel as if they can be, tacky and too 'trendy', whereas in winter they are always full of, really great quality sweaters and shirts.

I hope you enjoyed this post, thanks for reading,

The Breakfast Club

Yes, now the time has come for my point of view, on the extremely hyped about...The Breakfast Club. I love the whole theme behind The Breakfast Club. The fact that it is inspired by the many wonderful John Hughes films, and that it would have easily been called Save Ferris! I'm sure you've read many blogposts about The Breakfast Club, so I wanted to check it out for myself.

I visited the Tower Bridge branch, which is the newest. When my friend and I were trying to find it, we almost walked straight by as it's not very in your face...on the outside. The outside is a very appealing, simple, white, cafe looking place, on the inside? It's a whole new world. The decor is very loud and quirky. It has that art deco, vintage american diner, feel. The ceilings are pink, and there are pineapple lamps. I was sold already. I would like to point out, that if you are looking for a quite place to have brunch, I do not recommend The Breakfast Club, as I said, the decor is loud, and so is the environment. Luckily, I enjoyed this as I like the high energy of The Breakfast Club.

I was very impressed with the service, especially as it was packed full. Every single table was full. The staff were all very helpful and extremely friendly, it almost felt like you were talking to a friend. I genuinely enjoyed everything to do with The Breakfast club, apart from one minor problem. The coffee wasn't very hot at all, which was kind of a bummer, although, luckily for them I enjoy iced coffee! I ordered Smoked Salmon with Scrambled Eggs, on toast. Which I thoroughly enjoyed, it was delicious. The Breakfast club, is definitely one of the best brunches I have ever had.

If you're ever in London, I feel as if going to The Breakfast Club has became apart of the to-do-list, and I totally support it! I hope you enjoyed reading this post,

Nik

Transitional Outfits



If you are from the UK then by now you can definitely tell that we are heading into autumn. For the weather we are currently experiencing, dressing for it can be a nightmare. One moment the sun is shining, the next, the heavens have opened. My tip to you would be, layering. 

I decided I wanted to not get completely drenched, and tried to dress sensible. I wore my Denim Jacket, which is from Topman, (I also wore my Ralph Lauren Hoodie, which isn't pictured). Wearing something with a hood underneath a Denim Jacket, has became a bit of a habit recently, as I feel like it is a nice way of staying stylish but being practical. The top I am wearing is from Jack Wills, and is so warm. It's going to last me years, the quality is extremely good. The t-shirt is in between a normal tee and a sweater tee. I really don't like sweater tees, so this is a great way to avoid wearing one, but remain warm! Do I even need to say what I'm wearing on my bottom half, you know the drill. Black Slim Jeans form H&M, and my Black High-top Converse, of course.

I just wanted to give a little heads up in this post. Post may be rolling out less frequently, as of the start of September I am heading back to my final year of school. For the people who are not from the UK this means I am starting my GCSE exams, which obviously is a very serious and stressful time. However I am still going to try post at least once every fortnight!

If you enjoy these tip styled posts, let me know! Thanks for reading,

Liebster Award

I'm sure by now you know how the Liebster Award works. So I'm gunna get straight on with it. I was nominated by two lovely bloggers. My first nomination was from Malensu and my second, from Veni. As I had two nominations, I've decicdedd to pick questions from both of theirs, instad of creating two posts! But first, here are some rules,

Make sure to link back to the blogger(s) that nominated you.
Answer all of the questions provided.
Nominate 11 bloggers of your choice, who have under 200 followers.
Create 11 questions of your own, for the bloggers you nominate to answer.

Why did you start Blogging?
I've actually done a whole blogpost on this, which you can see here. But the main reason was because, I wanted a creative outlet, and blogging seemed to fit the bill perfectly.

What is your biggest Pet Peeve?
I feel as if I could easily create a blogpost dedicated to this. But the one that springs to mind right now, is when people eat really loudly. It drives me isane.

What is your favourite movie?
This is a tough question. I think it has to be Forrest Gump. The first time I watched, I felt I learnt a lot from it. I made me have a different perspective on the way that I view things.

What is your favourite post to date?
I am a big coffee drinker, and I'm a sucker for high quality. When I saw that Steve had created a post all to do with Coffee, I was very excited.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Honestly, London. It's not the most exotic place ever, but I visit London quite frequently, whenever I leave I still feel like I'm missing out on something. Also my family has a lot of history with London, so in that sense I feel attach too. Fortunately, if all goes to plan, in roughly 3 years I should be living there!

Who is your style icon?
I wouldn't say I really have a style icon. However, I really like Oliver Proudlock's style, although I am not a fan of the bun!

What is one song that you could listen to all day?
This changes all the time. But at the moment, I think it's oOoO - Oberhofer. 

What is your favourtie TV show at the moment?
I am a huge fan of television shows. But at the moment, it's 100% Game of Thrones. If you follow me on twitter, you would already know this. I am a newbie to the show, and currently half way through season 3.

What is your dream job?
Truthfully, I think it would be blogging. I enjoy it so much and to do this full time would be a dream. Something to do with literature.

One trend you hate?
Mens hot-pants. That's what me and my friends like to call them anyways. Very short, skin tight, shorts on Men. It looks so ridiculous! 

One thing in your wardrobe that you can't live without?
At the moment, it would have to be my denim jacket. It's great for layering and keeps me warm!

Now for the bloggers I noinate,

Sunaina

Evelina
