It's been a very busy month hence the hiatus! Here's what I've been upto in pictures:

1. Travelling... At the beginning of June I headed over to San Sebastián for one my closest friends' civilised hen holiday. This stunning Spanish city is deep in the Basque region of Spain, very close to the French border, and has it all - beautful beaches, a gorgeous old town full of beautiful architecture and delicious food (or pintxos - the Basque region's version of tapas).
2.  Eating and drinking... (& 5) Coffee art and brunch at Granger & Co, at the newly opened Clerkenwell branch. Yum-to-the-my! Famed for his easy going approach to food and christened the 'egg master' by The New York Times, this is Aussie restauranteur Bill Granger's latest opening in London. I went for the Aussie Breakfast (minus the meat) and my tummy and I left suitably satisfied!
3. Buying... I am currently pregnant with my first child and have decided to go heel free, so I'm exploring all exciting flat shoe avenues! I love these bow sandals by Michael Kors, picked up in the My Wardrobe sale.
4. Buying... I've been getting into my make up palettes recently and this is one of my latest additions - The Narsissist Palette from Nars.  I'm a bit late to the uptake on this one but that's because it was out of stock for ages! It features 15 iconic Nars eyeshadows - a mix of matte and shimmery, easy-to-blend shades in some gorgeous hues!
6. Eating... You may have guessed by now that brunch is one of my all time favourite activities! Brunch coupled with pancakes is a match made in heaven! I wolfed these pancakes down in a flash at Chuck's in Hatch End, the perfect low-key brunch and burger eatery in North West London.
7. Sorting... My extensive jewellery collection into organised harmony! The Muji perspex jewellery organisers have been a godsend! I've arranged statement necklaces into the jewellery drawer chest, and earrings and smaller bits into the square compartments. Colourful trays and small trinket boxes hold bangles, watches and (a tiny part of my collection of) rings respectively.
8. Buying... This isn't my usual style, but for summer I just fell in love with this neon, tasselled, sequin cross body bag from Accessorize! I'd spied it a while ago and then spotted it on the ever-so-stylish Laura Fantacci of Wearing it Today, and decided it had to be mine!
