It's been weeks since my birthday and Valentine's day but given the occasions and a reason to get out of the house, I decided to get a little spruced up and take some photos of my outfits but I somehow forgot to upload them along the way... a habit I need to shake! As I was scrolling through my camera, I stumbled upon the photos below and thought to myself, POST THEM WOMAN! So here I am, and here they are:

This first outfit (pictured above) is my idea of the perfect mish mash of items to keep warm, look chic but most importantly - eat comfortably!
Every year I like to organise a dinner for my birthday with my besties and family and so I always go to my sister for food advice because she is the ultimate foodie and knows all of the best spots in London - and I'm talking hidden gems! As a sushi-lover, I wanted to try something new and trust my sister to know just the place: Rockstar Sushi bar.
Cool name eh? But even cooler restaurant! First of all, it's tiny. Situated in Wimbledon, Rockstar Sushi Bar is not necessarily the kind of place you would walk past and think: "Hmmm, I must go in there!" but big mistake guys! It's odd location, casual rock and roll layout and limited number of seating may be deceiving at first but the food is beyond words.
The amazing thing about the limited capacity mixed with my party of 12 diners meant that the restaurant was now at full capacity and we had the place to ourselves! Such an awesome experience, and not only were we the only diners but the restaurant isn't normally open on a Wednesday but given we were at capacity and it was my birthday, they made an exception :)
I had such a wondeful and memorable evening and highly recommend you give it a try if you're ever in the area.

My second throwback outfit dates back to Valentine's Day, where Fabio & I were invited to dinner with some friends who had organised a couples dinner at a lovely middle-eastern restaurant with belly dancers and live music on Wardour Street in London. I again wanted to go for comfort given we were going to be eating and sitting down most of the time, so I went for my favourite 'special occasion' boots - my suede thigh high Loubs and paired them with this fab find from TK Maxx, a Helmut Lang dress.
I hope you guys enjoy these types of posts, do let me know a I'm pretty sure there are a few other outfit photos hiding on my camera that I would love to share with you. Much love and until next time! – xx
