That'll Give You Summer Feels
10 Of London's
Hottest Summer Pop-Ups
This month, I decided to jump on the vegetable bandwagon and do #Veganuary.
Having heard a lot about the demons of dairy, I took the plunge – mainly for health reasons (and to try and lose a few of those Christmas Camembert pounds, too)
With that said, I headed to the shops on the 2nd January (New Years Day was a write-off given a killer hangover that could only be cured by cheese) to stock up on soy milk, quinoa and chickpeas.
I took the ‘fail to prepare, prepare to fail’ mantra in my stride and over the course of the month made a quinoa salad, ratatouille, a spinach and chickpea curry, a kale and tofu stir fry and possibly the tastiest mousakka I’ve ever eaten.
The biggest hurdle was definitely eating out. I’ve never been a fussy eater, so having to be that person and awkwardly tweak a menu took some getting used to. Skipping the poached eggs at brunch with avocado and toast and swerving the halloumi in a veggie burrito was tough. So tough.
I became a pro at reading labels and when in doubt, Google always had my back.
In case you hadn’t heard, Fifty Shades Darker is coming to a cinema near you on Valentine’s Day. So it’s no surprise that Jamie Dornan’s appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show involved more than just an interview. There was acting, there were plastic boobs and there were office supplies you’ll never look at the same again.
Watch and LOL…
In case you haven’t seen the world’s most liked Instagram, Queen B is expanding her hive with not one but two mini B’s. And when you break the internet overnight, it’s only a matter of time before the memes flood in…
Salt Bae becomes Salt Jay…

Ever since the iconic moment those curly locks were premiered on The X Factor *swoon*, it started a never-ending love affair for many of us. And yes, when 1D really became successful, the ‘I prefer Zayn’ traitors reared their disloyal heads but we all know that from the start, it was all about Harry.
So what is it about Mr. Styles that makes him so bloody gorgeous !? Oh, I can name a few things…
As told by Rachel Green’s relationship history… because she’s been there, done that!
The One That Wasn’t Right: Barry
Whether you knew it from the beginning or did a Rachel and just ran at the altar, there was nothing exactly WRONG with this relationship… something just wasn’t right. It may have been tough but you know it was the right decision – the world is now your oyster!
Ah, house sharing… learning life lessons whilst trying to keep sane in an intense, and often unbearable environment. The time that brings out the best and the worst in those closest to you.
If you’ve ever shacked up with pals, you’ll most likely recognise one or more of the below. And in all likelihood, you’ll fit neatly into one of these categories too…
1. The Food Thief
The always anonymous and ever-hungry. The one who gets in after a night out and treats the communal fridge as an all-you-can-eat buffet. The one your anger edges towards when you find there is no bacon to fulfil your barm in which you have oh so sacredly prepped the night before. Whether it’s a drop of milk or a whole pizza – they’re the reason you have trust issues.
V-Day is almost here! Whether you’re being whisked away by bae to your fave restaurant and a stay in a 5* hotel or heading to the bar with your gals, you wanna be the best dressed come date night, right?
Here’s what we’re <3-ing…
