Chelsea In Bloom 2018





Hey everyone, if you don't live in London then you may not know about Chelsea In Bloom that happens every year around the time that the Chelsea Flower Show starts. The Chelsea Flower Show is held every year at the Royal Hospital Chelsea it is an outdoor festival that celebrates the wonders of the different types of flowers that we have. There is also shows, artisan gardens, a nursery pavilion, music, shopping, food, and drink. 

The shops close to the show put up floral displays every year to get into the spirit of things. This is actually the first time that I had visited Chelsea In Bloom and I absolutely loved it. You tend to find that most of the displays are around Sloane Square, Kings Road, Sloane Street & Pavilion Road. 





As you can see from the photos there are some amazing displays. It was great fun just to wander around and ask strangers to take photos for me as I was alone. The beauty of an attraction like this is that lots of people go alone so they don't mind taking your photo if you take one for them. 

My favourite display was the bus and the arch display where I am standing underneath. I just love how creative some of these are and when you see them in real life they smell amazing as well. The whole area of Sloane Square has an amazing atmosphere as everyone is rushing around to get photos near the floral displays. 

Unfortunately, the show ends tomorrow which means that the floral displays outside of the shops will begin to disappear as well. If you are looking to visit Chelsea In Bloom then you should look to visit around the 22nd of May next year for a chance to see all of the floral displays outside of the shops.

Review | Suvlaki Soho, London



Hey guys, today's blog post I thought that I would share with you a restaurant that I visited recently in Soho, London. I was out with my Greek friend when we came across this Greek restaurant in Soho. I had never been to a Greek restaurant before visiting Suvlaki

You can find Suvlaki on Bateman Street just off Greek Street. The closest tube stations are Tottenham Court Road & Leicester Square. The restaurant itself is very small but has a warm and inviting feel to it. As soon as I walked inside I fell in love with the interior of it as it has real Greek feel to it. 




We didn't actually end up eating a lot as we only wanted something small so we got a few dishes to share. For starters, we got some Tzatziki which is a dip made up of yogurt mixed with cucumbers, garlic, salt, olive oil & sometimes lemon. The Tzatziki was really yummy and tasted a lot better than the one I usually buy from Tesco. We also went for some olives as we are both a fan of them. Both starters were served with warm bread which you could tell was fresh as it tasted delicious. 

For our mains, we both got one of the Suvlaki wraps which the restaurant specialises in. We both decided to get the pulled pork wrap which came with cucumber, tomatoes, and feta cheese. The wraps were probably my favourite part as they came warm and for me the size was just right. You can order a large one for around £2/£3 extra however, I wasn't hungry enough to eat a bigger one and I knew I would leave a lot otherwise.

The food itself was very reasonably priced as you can find dishes from £2.50 - £12.00. When we went there were lots of customers who did what we did and got a few different dishes to share. Overall, I loved the experience and the food was really yummy so I would definitely go back as I would love to try the other dishes. If you are looking for a quick bite to eat and something a little different then definitely check out Suvlaki. They also have a restaurant in Shoreditch as well as Soho.

Wishlist | Boohoo Festival Vibes


Festival season is just around the corner but are you festival ready? If you are nowhere near ready then have no fear because Boohoo are here to save the day. They have tons of festival items for you to choose from. I would say one of my favourite items they have is their Mac's because they look fab as well as keeping you dry if it rains (Which it probably will let's be honest guys we live in the UK). You can check out all of their festival range on their website.

Getting Back Into The Swing Of Things


Bank holiday weekends are always a lot of fun especially when the weather was as amazing as it was. Yesterday it hit 28 degrees in London which was higher than Havana and Los Angles! I couldn't quite believe it as you can experience all four seasons in one day here in London. Although I wasn't actually in London to experience it myself where I was reached 25 degrees it felt a lot hotter though. 

The beginning of last week I felt so unwell and just not myself so I rested a lot at the beginning of the week. However, towards the end of the week things picked up and I actually had about three interviews in the space of a few days which was quite hectic. On Saturday morning I went to watch my eldest nephew play football which was a lot of fun and then stayed over at my Dads for the weekend.

On Sunday we had a BBQ with family and friends and made the most of the sunshine. I was going to come back on Monday but the thought of driving home on a Bank Holiday really put me off. I finally feel like I am getting back to my normal self as the last couple of weeks I really haven't been feeling well. 

It was really nice to have the sunny weather as I think we could have all done with brightening up considering the weather we have had recently here in the UK. I definitely mad the most of it as I managed to read some of the book that I am currently reading and had many cups of tea outside while taking in my surroundings. 

I also feel like I am getting my YouTube mojo back and I really want to sit down this weekend and film some videos. I am of course going to film when I go to Hong Kong. I cannot wait to go there as it's only about two weeks away now which means that my excitement is growing by the day. 

Every week I want to try and do the things that I used to do whether it is reading a part of my book every day or to watch a new film once a week. When you are working full-time sometimes you don't have time to do the things that you would like to do so now I would like to incorporate them into my weekly routine.
