Hump Day Breakfast at The Wolseley

For me, Breakfast is everything! It's my favourite meal of the day, so you can imagine my delight when I received an invite to a bloggers breakie at The Wolseley, from the lovely folk at Farfetch * fist pump*.

Last Wednesday, I excitedly jumped on the tube (with a rumbling stomach), and headed to Green Park to meet my fellow diners; what a gorgeous bunch they were. As we made our way to our table I couldn't help but feel a little in awe of the venue.  The art-deco interior, stairways, marble floors, the chandeliers... sheer plushness!

 The Food

I'm the most indecisive person when it comes to ordering food, but in the end, I went for the salmon on scrambled eggs, which was so yummy! I will confess that I did have a case of  food envy when the pancakes arrived. Ha!

Once we all placed our orders, we were given a talk on all of the cool stuff coming up at Farfetch. Farfetch has been on my fave online brand list for a while now, so I'm super excited about everything that we were told. Let's just say, they have some pretty wow things in the pipeline this year! If you're not too familiar with the brand, in a nutshell they are all about supporting independent boutiques/brands across the globe. 

We then spent the next couple of hours eating, laughing and yapping away. As always, I love meeting fellow bloggers and hearing their experiences and advice. That's the good thing about the blogging world, in my experience, all bloggers that I've met are incredibly supportive, friendly and uplifting.

Last year, I took a mini break from blogging due to various reasons. Spending my Wednesday morning with Farfetch and 4 lovely bloggers reconfirmed that my blogging juices were back and that I'm ready to get my blogging back on!

Big thank you again to Farfetch for such a gorgeous breakfast and a lovely morning!

A Star Print Affair

Show me an eye-catching print and I'm all over it. And there is something about a starry print piece that just makes my stomach flip. A quirkier alternative to florals don't you think? When I stumbled upon this dress on I knew I had to have it!

The dress is true to size but it does have a low neckline and seen as I'm not particularly blessed in the bust area department (flat-chested girl problems), I did have to pop down to my alterations guys to adjust the straps and bust area.

I teamed my dress with my fave floppy hat, suede pointy lace-up boots, a faux leather quilted jacket (that I recently rediscovered) and round frame red sunnies.

Star print is not always easy to pull off, but the easy-breezy silhouette + double side slits on this maxi = winner!

The lovely folk at ASOS have only gone and marked this down to an eye-popping £9!!! (Scream!).Which is good for you but not so good for me as I did pay full price (Grr). So if you're feeling this dress as much as I am, I suggest you get clicking and 'Add to bag'. (#Justsayin').

Side note: The first photo made it on to ASOS #Asseenonme
