I found this old hat in my wardrobe this morning and had completely forgotten how much I used to wear it. I like the combination of girly lace with a more chic, rough edge and this hat in combination with my vintage Levi’s does the trick.
This weather here in London makes me slightly depressed- it was pouring rain when I finished my class today, but after all it allows me to sit inside a cozy cafe with a hot bowl of soup- and I can do exactly that at The Book Club just down the street. And wear fashionable hats!
Much love, Hanna xx

Recently I have swapped my obsession for Zara with Mango- I love the chic, western look of their spring/summer collection and this dress is just one of the many items I have had my eye on. I am starting to build up my summer wardrobe for all my travels after the exams and I noticed an urgent lack of summer dresses but thankfully it won’t be very difficult to sort that out!
This weekend I am back in Cheltenham at my boyfriend’s parents for Easter- it is nice to get a quick break from London’s hectic atmosphere. So happy Easter to everyone!

A few days ago I bought my first proper lens for my Canon 600d and today was the first time I had the opportunity to try it out. Before I have used the 55mm basic lens that comes with the camera and though it works alright, it’s not particularly good in lower light conditions and doesn’t blur out the background much. This one- the 50mm f/1.4 is a hundred times better and I am so pleased with it- cannot wait to try it out more!

A wrap-around piece is a great and simple way to make an outfit more fun and I love combining colours and prints like this striped dress and red leather jacket. It gives a casual yet chic look which takes no time to prep.
Now I am off to get a new lens for my camera! Exciting!

Those who read my blog know that my Sundays are dedicated to Columbia Rd. flower market, and I never get tired of it! On days like today, with bright sunshine and warm weather, there is nothing better than taking a stroll down through Shoreditch with a coffee to-go in hand to have a look at all the beautiful flowers and sit with an ice-cream in the park. My flat is always filled with bouquets, tulips and roses (and sometimes lilies) on Sunday afternoon and today was no exception. I also always save time for a visit to the fruit and vegetable market by Shoreditch High Street station and afterwards chill on the terrace of the Ace Hotel with my endless amount of articles.
I hope everyone have had a relaxing and joyful Sunday, I just got back from my hot yoga class and after finishing the last of my studying, intend on sitting back on the couch with a Sunday dinner and a movie!
I bought this bright red handbag at the airport in Porto just before getting on my flight back to London and haven’t started using it until now. I have a thing for a splash of colour to a basic outfit, especially now in spring, and I hope this bag will come to good use.
Happy Saturday btw! Weekend again :) In London we have a cloudy and grey day here but tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and bright so I am taking the opportunity to get some work done before my evening hot yoga class.
If you ever take a trip to west London or happen to be living close by, there is one restaurant you absolutely have to try. My boyfriend introduced me to it after discovering it when he used to live in the area and now every time we go over to Notting Hill, we book a table for dinner. Walmer Castle- on Ledbury Road, just up from Portobello, lies the best Thai place in town. What looks like a normal British pub from the outside is actually the host of a remarkably good Thai restaurant on the second floor, with views over the streets of Notting Hill (and evening sun if you happen to get a window table). I love spicy food, the more authentic the better, and I have to admit their Thai green curry completely won me over. Match with prawn crackers and sweet & sour sauce and the evening is fulfilled.
