Kingfisher

Recently, my friend Joshi came to visit me here in London. You may remember from my previous post, we went to London Fashion Weekend during his first day. We then devoted the second day to finding Joshi his perfect bike to take back to Canterbury. He'd already carried out his own research on what make he wanted and we just needed to find a shop not too far away that stocked them, so to Highbury & Islington we headed!











Dress (worn as a top) // Choies     Jeans // Monsoon     Nike Air Trainers // eBay     Camera Bag // Asos     Sunglasses // Primark     Necklace // Present

I was sent this white dress from Choies to wear and review (read my full report here!). As you can see, it was pretty short to wear as a dress, so I decided to wear it as a long top. I wanted to show off my new Nike's and remembered I had these aquamarine jeans from Monsoon that matched with the vibrant colours perfectly.

I also took the chance to show off my new camera bag. It's so perfectly me in its navy and white stripes! It's by New Look but I bought it from Asos

So, back to our bicycle hunt in North East London. Joshi knew he wanted a Bobbin Bike, and we managed to find a Micycle shop in Islington that stocked this brand. From looking online, Joshi quite liked the Daytripper (anyone else just sing the Beatles song?), but after testing it plus others, he decided on the Kingfisher, and how very apt considering the colours of my outfit for the day! Whilst his new bike was being serviced, we popped to a lovely vegan cafe called Ez and Moss, where we had some delicious food and scrumptious carrot cake. After picking up Joshi's bike, we took a long and beautiful walk to Kings Cross, where we ended his visit along the canal.











Now, in my last post I hosted a London Fashion Weekend giveaway, but no one has entered yet, so I've decided to tempt you all a bit more by adding some extra goodies in to the bag! Here's what is already in the giveaway.



Hello Fashion magazine, Garnier cleansing wipes, Lavazza coffee, Maybelline Great Lash black mascara, Artelac Rebalance eye drops, Essie nail varnish, Label.m shine spray for hair and a £25 gift card for Hello Fresh, all inside an exclusive tote bag designed by Lulu Guinness for London Fashion Weekend. All this apparently wasn't enough to tempt anyone into entering. So here's what I've added.

Lee Stafford My Big Fattest Silky Smoother hairbrush and colour fade protection oil treatment, gold bejewelled cuff from Very, Oriflame triple core lipstick, Ecco leather purse, and Green People anti-ageing facial oil and hydrating firming serum.

All you need to do is leave a comment with your email address so I can contact you if you win. You don't even need to follow me, but if you'd like to then you can find me on Bloglovin, Twitter, Instgram and Facebook. Winner will be chosen next Sunday 12th October at 7pm BST.

Thanks for reading and good luck with your entry :)

Oh there are so many cats around where I live. We had one decide it was going to live with us. She then turned out to be pregnant and had 3 little kittens in my housemates bed. She lives next door now, even had more kittens there too!
