Biking with Santander

One of my life regrets is never learning how to ride a bike. That always really makes people surprised but I just never got round to it as a kid.

And then in comes Santander. They're the new bikes around town so when they invited myself and several other bloggers for a ride round the Science Museum, I knew this would be the time to learn. The team there was great. Everyone knew that I couldn't ride a bike, and had never been on a bike before, so they were all really helpful. They calmed my nerves and gave me a few practice rides before sending us on our way.

I absolutely love the Science Museum. I make it my mission to visit at least a few times a year, and going to the 'Lates' (where it's open after 7pm for 18+) is my favourite time to go. To have a private tour alongside some of my favourite bloggers/friends was quite an experience. Our tour guide was fabulous and I learnt so much. The space section was my favourite place. Loved finding out about the space stations and shuttles.

I definitely struggled a little bit. Ha! In the picture above, you can see my face in fear. I pedalled a bit but walked with my bike most of the way. But it's encouraged me to learn. I think I might grab one of the Santander bikes on day after work and try to learn.

More from Greece

I've had a wonderful weekend - I turned the big 2-7 and celebrated in style with the gang I went to Greece with, which reminded that I still had some outfits to share from that holiday.

This is one of my last looks from Greece and now I'm suer eager to go away on holiday again. I never seem to wear any of my holiday looks in London and I'm really missing walking around in shorts and cute tops - London, you see, has been quite cold this July. 
This top is the high light of this look for me. I love the two different colours at the front.

This hat though. I bought it while delayed for a flight back in February, and it has seriously come with me on every holiday I've had this year. And it's been in pretty much all of my holiday looks. I guess delayed flights have some advantages.

Greek sunsets have probably been my favourite ever. They are stunners and everyday we were treated to different views and colours for the sunset. This was my favourite bar in Thessaloniki - it was located on a hillside and looked over the whole city and some ruins.

And because Cat and I are so cool.

The Playsuit

One of my favourite days in Greece was the day after the wedding. The brides mother hired a coach for everyone who wanted to come along and gave us a tour round the whole city.

I actually haven't been near a playsuit in years. I could never find one that really fit right but I took a gamble on this one and it really paid off. I would say it's on of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe right now.
I am currently hooked on Jane the Virgin and Petra is my current style icon - she's all about showing off the legs in heels, so I emulated her here.

I actually wish I was back in Greece. The weather in London is awful and these pictures of the sun make me want to go on holiday again.

The whole day was so fantastic and we made some really good friends with some of the other wedding guests - people that I can call friends now. We travelled around the city together checking out churches (where Cat and I got in trouble for being inappropriately dressed), catacombs and even had another boat ride on the Arabella Ship - the ship that is actually a bar and cruises round.
