As it s Pancake Day, PJ and I could not possibly miss out on having some pancakes for lunch today. As we both try to eat healthy we went for a better option - banana pancakes. If you think that they are difficult to make, you couldn't be more wrong. Just mash up a banana and two eggs in a bowl (per person). Add some cinnamon or vanilla and then fry on a tiny bit of coconut oil. When it comes to toppings, it's up to you. We went for peanut butter, almond butter, strawberries and some more nuts. But try having them with blueberries, cream or maple syrup. Simply delicious! Enjoy your Pancake Day!

Finally got it! And it was a bargain too! The black bra / bralette craze has been going on for a while. Margaret Zhang and other bloggers have been on the quest to find the perfect one for moths now. I have to admit that I was somehow reluctant to begin with as I'm not really into black underwear...
But this time it was different. I could not help but wonder what it would look like on me. And, as I suspected, it looks just perfect! It is by Lovaine - a young and fabulous young British shop owner who I have been following on Instagram for a while. If you're into beautiful jewellery you should check her out as well! (this post is not sponsored by her and it was not a gift. I simply love her designs!)
I shop in big high street chains most of the time. But little pieces from local(ish) designers are what does it for me. They usually are intimates that I do not share on my blog... But this time I made an exception. Have you got your yet? Roll on summer! I want to wear it under an oversized t-shirt showing off just the edges of my perfect black lace bralette ;)

What does you Sunday morning look like? This morning I woke up fully rested and to boost my metabolism I went out for a run before it started raining. I exercise every day just to be in shape and get a bit more toned and slightly leaner. I was really proud of myself as it look me only just under 24 mins to run 5k. Beating my personal best!
After a long hot shoer and getting dressed I indulged myself into my usual breakfast: soft boiled egg, crisp-bread sandwich, almond milk porridge with fruit and a little coffee. There's no better way to start a day! Have a lovely Sunday my dear readers!

Yes, I am biased. I have been shopping at Zara for years now and it's simply because I love their clothes. They are affordable, decent quality and beautifully designed. So.... after soaking up the fashion at London Fashion Week I rushed shopping to get some blush, mint green and white pieces. You saw my selfie wearing the matching set here. Soon (hopefully, if weather allows) you will be able to see all of them in a proper outfit post.
Pastels are definitely what I'm going for this season. Have you got any favourites? Anything you crave for? I am on the quest to get a perfect pastel pink coat!

I don't know how about you but I had a great morning. Managed to get tickets to Vogue Festival 2014 at approximately 10:02 this morning. I've visited it last year and were overwhelmed by the size of this event so I just had to make sure I get there this year as well. Now I just have to wait for the tickets to arrive and roll on 29th of March! Are you coming?
