The Summer Drink

July 30, 2015

It doesn't feel as though theres even been much of a summer here in the UK, but it doesn't stop me from wanting to make the most of it by getting into the summer mood. I decided to make a summer drink that would be perfect for a hot day, and this is what I came up with. I've been obsessed with fresh brewed mint tea at the moment, so this is a Fresh Mint & Apple Mocktail.


Fresh Mint
Boiling Water
Cloudy Apple Juice
Elderflower Presse


Boil some water and then pour it onto a handful of fresh mint. Leave to brew and cool down slightly before pouring over ice. Top up with a third of apple juice and a third of elderflower presse. Add some fresh mint and stir. And that's it. Simples.

This is a beautiful drink perfect for hot summer days. (P.S it looks cutest when served in a jar/cup like this one from John Lewis!)

British Summertime

July 13, 2015

I recently got a few new additions for my wardrobe and therefore thought it was only right to do an outfit post about them! In summer I love nothing more than being comfortable and casual, so I picked up this grey and white striped shirt from H&M. It's lightweight and perfect for a British summer.  I also think it looks a lot more expensive that it was (£15 if you're wondering!). Another amazing summer addition is these beautiful sandals which I managed to snag for an incredible £16 in the Zara sale. The silver metal detailing toughens up a simple outfit like this, and quite frankly they are also incredibly comfortable! 

P.S please ignore my severe RBF (Resting Bitch Face) , I promise I was not as moody as I looked - I'm working on it...
