August in Pictures

As many of you know, I am an avid instagrammer. I can't get enough of it. So why not share them with you all over again, you lucky people.

In August I went to Ibiza, was lucky enough to be a bridesmaid and ate an awful lot of food. There were birthdays, dinners, drinks and of course, a beautiful, beautiful wedding (more on that soon...). And just like that, Summer is over. I am curled up on the sofa with a blanket and a cup of tea, watching the making of university challenge.

Rock and roll. Excited to see what September will bring!

Lust List: Tiny Tattoos

A few weeks ago now Company magazine (oh why, oh why are they not printing anymore?!) tweeted a link to 50 of the coolest small tattoo ideas which got me thinking... I have always wanted a tattoo. I've been through all the phases - hearts, birds, writing - but never totally settled on what I wanted. I've scoured pinterest and the like and come up with my favourite ideas for you but somehow I still can't bring myself to do it. Maybe I'm just too chicken?

Coq d'Argent: EC2

A few weeks ago, fresh off a plane from Ibiza, I donned my dancing (eating) shoes and headed up to fancy central London for a slap up meal with the housies to celebrate Jess' 24th birthday!

If you haven't be to Coq before, do. It's a lovely little(ish) place at No 1 Poultry. You go through a small door straight into a lift and up to a roof garden which has an open balcony, perfect for when it's sunny, but also a walled terrace which is great for when it's not.

Gin cocktails aplenty we settled down to study the menu.

We went for the set menu which is perfect for when you want something a bit special but don't want to pay a huge amount of money. Still craving seafood I went for the whitebait which was cooked perfectly and with just the right amount of chilli, followed by the duck (what else?!). Poor Bex sat next to me had to endure me taking photos of her Champignons before she could eat them too.

As it was a birthday we decided to skip the pudding and Bex bought the most amazing carrot cake I have ever tasted (caution: they will charge you for this). An enthusiastic, if not quite in tune, rendition of 'Happy Birthday' followed and we tucked in.

Lust List: White Interiors

This week I discovered a new blog, Lark & Linen, and fell head over heels in lust with her house envy posts. These images come courtesy of RSA Associates - an interior design company based in Texas. The huge glass doors in the bedroom, the classic white and pale wood in the living room, the huge shower in the bathroom... If I had a house, this is the house I would have.
