Sunday Midi

I've always been a 'mini' girl, in regards to dresses and skirts. I like mine really north of the knee, but I've always wanted to try out longer styles.

This dress has definitely made me a fan of more midi length pieces. I always thought I'd I'd look really short with anything below the knee, but I'm surprised how much I love this. And I'm also a massive fan of the detailing around the neckline. I need one last burst of summer now.

Also love my new Shore watch. The mint strap looks fabulous while the watches themselves are inspired by the British seaside. Each piece is vintage inspired but with quality you can wear everyday. What's really great about the watches is that the straps are interchangeable so you can change them depending on your mood or outfit.

Dolce Gusto - Coffeegraphy

Calligraphy has always been a skill that I wanted to learn, but I could have never predicted that my first experience of it would involve coffee rather than ink!

To launch their new coffee machines: the Jovia and Oblo machines, Nescafe Dolce Gusto invited us down to try our hands in this unique calligraphy class. We first had out writing style evaluated and were given a matching cup of coffee as ink.

We were sat down with the founder of Lamplighter London - who specialise in creative design pieces, such as wedding invites and modern calligraphy - and were ready to get started. We were each given full writing equipment and templates so we could get started. I had no idea how hard a skill it is, even with a template. I kept blotting up and squeezing coffee all over my page - not the aim. But I did have a lot of fun and I can't wait to practice a bit.

We did get the professionals involved and  managed to get my name in coffee calligraphy which I now have up on my wall.

The two new coffee machines are contemporary, unique and very stylish, each allowing you to produce coffee shop standard coffee in your own home. The both also come in various different colours and are able to produce over 30 hot and cold drinks - amazing right!

Belgium

I spent the last long weekend in Belgium and it was a lovely holiday. We went predominantly for the Formula 1, so spent most of our days at the beautiful track in Spa, watching fast cars whizz by, and eating a lot of waffles. It wasn't my most fashionable to trips as it was a bit cold and I knew there would be a lot of walking.

Saturday - Qualifiers Day - was a bit rainy, as in it started off nice, then I got drenched. We tried to find shelter, but then that flooded and we had to scramble out via some fences. We then had to watch the Qualifiers in the pouring rain. We didn't mind though. The atmosphere was amazing and it was great seeing my favourite drivers fly past.
(I'm not screaming from the weather in the picture below: my jeans were far too tight and I'd developed bruises around my waist by this time).

Like I said, it's a stunning circuit, surrounded by a lot of greenery up in the mountains, with only small cities nearby.

Race day itself on the Sunday, had a lot better weather. It was still a bit chilly, but the sun was shining so we could enjoy the race comfortably. My brother and I managed to get on to the track after the race too to see the winners ceremony and got to hang out at the start/finish line, where I had to take pictures and do the cool task of picking up bits of tire that was on the track!

We ended our trip by spending 20 hours in Brussels, where it rained for all 20 hours. We didn't explore the city, but decided that we had to do the Grand Palace, then we just wandered in and out of chocolate shops. I seriously bought my weight in chocolate. The Grand Palace is a stunning location, and hopefully I can go there again on a day when there's better weather so I can properly enjoy it.
