Burger and Lobster

Happy Monday everyone. No Motivational Monday post today, but instead a post for all of you food lovers. I finally got to go to Burger and Lobster for part two of my birthday celebration! I had wanted to go for the longest while. I dressed up a little (a post about my outfit will be up on Thursday), and set off with my hubby after work.

I can’t remember the name of the drink I chose – the green one is mine. I picked it because it had matcha in it, which I know is good for you because it is packed with antioxidants. It didn’t taste too bad, but it wasn’t the sweetest.

meal 2

I opted for the grilled lobster, as opposed to steamed. Whether you choose a burger, lobster or both, every meal comes with chips and salad. I would have really loved to try the lobster with garlic butter, but being dairy-free, I just went for the sweet chilli.

The food was delicious, but I wasn’t satisfied. I guess I should have known. How much meat can you really get out of a lobster?

My husband, on the other hand, got a burger and couldn’t finish it so, I had half of his, which was delicious. I should have chosen a burger and lobster. After all, isn’t that what the restaurant name suggests? 😉

I will definitely go back to get a burger or both.

Have you been to Burger and Lobster? What did you think of it?

Birthday ruffles

Blouse: ASOS

Black jeans: New Look

Blue mules: New Look (similar here, here, here and here)

This is what I wore to the theatre on my birthday. It was the perfect outfit because I was comfortable. I had been in a two-hour meeting beforehand, and I didn’t want the hassle of changing into something fancy. I just wanted quick and easy.

I am really loving ruffles and big sleeves, and I don’t think I will get tired of them anytime soon. They are elegant and feminine, and pretty to look at. The only thing that bugged me about this top is that it just about sits on the waist line, so whenever I lifted my arms, it would raise up. I had to wear a vest underneath because I was not keen on showing any skin. But apart from that, I loved it. This top and mules are due to be on repeat very soon.

Two more birthday posts to come and that will be it, promise. Have a great weekend.

Be initiative

DSC00057

Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend?


“Stop chasing what’s now and create what is next.”

When I pulled this quote out of my Happy Jar, I thought it was so relevant to the here and now.

There is only one way to do the same thing, but so many different ways to be unique. There can be a tendency to copy when you see someone succeeding in a particular area or doing a certain thing that is getting attention.

But instead of trying your hand at what they are doing, why not be initiative? You could be the one to think of the next big thing. Don’t be the same as everyone else. Be a leader, not a follower.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with doing the same thing as everyone else… if that’s all you want to be known for.

I’d rather be known for being initiative. How about you? I hope this post gives you something to think about.

Have a great day.

The shoes everyone is wearing this summer

Blue Suedette Heeled Mules

Mules! Whoever thought these would be back in fashion, eh? I remember wearing my mother’s black leather block-heeled mules around the house when I couldn’t be bothered to fetch my slippers from upstairs.

Now they are back and chicer than ever, and they have definitely grown on me. They come in different colours, patterns, with criss-cross details, low and mid heels. They are so comfortable and easy to walk in. They are perfect if you want to wear heels but don’t want to wear heels, if you catch my drift.

I bought these to complete my birthday outfit. How could I not? They were on sale at New Look for £10! I wanted to be comfortable and at ease. I didn’t mind not dressing up so much, seeing as part two of my birthday celebrations includes going to dinner on the day this post goes live. So I will dress up a little for that. A post about how I styled these mules for my birthday will be up next week.

This vibrant shade of blue is my favourite colour. I used to wear blue ALL. THE. TIME! My wardrobe was full of it. I have toned it all the way down, and now I only have four blue items in my wardrobe, including these mules.

What do you think of this summer trend? Do you own a pair of mules? If so, in what colour?

No one is in charge

Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend?

It was my 26th birthday on Saturday, so my hubby and I went to see the Lion King in theatre. I’ve seen it before as a child, but I wanted to see it again, so I told him to take me. I was trying not to compare it to the first time I saw it, because as a child, everything looks twice as big as it is. But I loved it nonetheless.

On Thursday, the hubby is taking me to Burger and Lobster, which I’ve been wanting to go to for the longest while. That was also a personal request. See, men are not mind readers. When you tell them what you want, that is exactly what you get. 😉


“No one is in charge of your happiness except you.”

You and I cannot allow people to dictate the way that we feel. This gives them power over us, and we are worth much more than that.

Don’t allow anyone to make you feel inferior or unimportant. I’ve had my fair share of that and it’s a horrible feeling. That is why I take pleasure in making people feel good about themselves. I enjoy seeing and making people smile because… why not? If I could turn someone’s frown upside down, why wouldn’t I? If I could make a positive impact in their life, why wouldn’t I? Why should I be mean ,or rude, or dismissive?

But the point of this post is that, you should be happy in yourself, despite whether others go out of their way to make you feel good or not. You should know and be content enough to flick your hair and walk with confidence, regardless of whether someone acknowledges you or not. It has taken me a while to get to this point, but I am happy that I’m finally here. If I leave the house and take pride in my outfit, I don’t need a compliment to make me feel better about myself. Hearing one would be nice, right, but it doesn’t mean that my world will fall apart if I don’t get any.

I’ve learnt to be my own person, to be happy with me. That is all that matters.

My husband can make me happy, and he knows how to, but when he is not around, I am completely content in my own company. Because, before I met him, I had learnt to be happy with me.

When you are in charge of your happiness, no one can tell you how you should or should not feel. Be confident in yourself. It will take you a long way.

I hope this has helped someone today. Have a great Monday.

My Dream Dressing Room

Every girl dreams of having a room just for getting ready in the morning. It would make the whole process of choosing your outfit that much more fun.

dream dressing room

My dream dressing room would be based on neutral tones. When my hubby and I buy our first home, this is also how I want it to be decorated. I think neutral tones—beiges, creams and whites—create a warm, comfortable and inviting atmosphere.

I’d have a shaggy carpet so that I could walk about barefoot in comfort. Nothing feels better than carpet underneath your feet. The ottoman would be for when I need to put on my shoes, and the chaise lounge would be for relaxing, or seating for when guests come over.

I’d have to have a pretty dressing table so that I can do my make-up in the same room.

Other necessary items include: Wardrobes that cover an entire wall — obviously because a girl can never have too many clothes. Check. Shoe shelves to store all of my shoes. Check. A rectangle floor length mirror in the corner. The best kind, for those full length selfies, but also so that I can inspect myself before leaving the house. Double check. And lastly, a pretty chandelier to light up the room. Lighting is a must in a dressing room.

My dream dressing room is simple and straightforward. I’m not one for fancy, showy things, and have always appreciated functionality.

Arhaus have all of your furniture needs. Check them out on Instagram.

If you had the chance to have your very own dream dressing room, what would it look like?

Good things take time

photo_2017-06-17_16-42-28

Happy Monday everyone! What did you get up to this weekend? The sun was blazing, but I did suffer a little bit. I’m not so good with heat and prefer lukewarm temps. Still, I made the most of it that I could and finally went to see Wonder Woman with the hubby. What a film! I want to be able to jump up and fly around like she can. Now, that would be cool. That is all.


“Be patient. Good things take time.”

This quote couldn’t be any closer to the truth. Rushing your blessings will surely cause you to trip up in the road.

Some people are so anxious to make it big or reach their dreams that they take shortcuts. But there’s a problem with shortcuts. Anything that is achieved in a rush and by cutting corners, rather than steadily and with a proper foundation, will one day come tumbling down.

I don’t know about you, but I’d rather put in all the effort now, even if I get to ‘play’ less, so that I can truly enjoy all that I’ve worked hard for in the future.

How about you?
