shoedrobe reviews

If you’re anything like me, you’re totally shoe obsessed.

Much like Carrie in Sex and the City, I cannot stop buying shoes.

They call to me while I walk by in store windows, they slink into my browser history and they all somehow end up in my wardrobe.

I can’t help it, I have a problem, OK? View Post

miss selfridge maxi dress

Summer is officially in London… and ahem, on my travels in America!

As you travel away from the coast and into the mainland of California, the weather starts heating up significantly. The sun beats down on your neck, and you better make sure you have a pair of sunnies in your bag at all times.

So while we were staying in Napa, I couldn’t think of a more perfect outfit for wandering through the vineyards, sipping on glasses of the finest Pinot Noir than a flowing maxi dress. View Post

visiting san francisco

After a dreary first morning out escaping from Alcatraz, we were back on the mainland in sunny San Francisco, in time for the perfect thing… BRUNCH.

You all know I love a good brunch, and after a series of recommendations we found ourselves at the Buena Vista Café. It’s sat atop of a hill overlooking the water and the entrance to the cable cars and is the perfect spot for a good greasy fry up. View Post

visiting alcatraz san francisco


It’s one of those mythical places in the United States that was home to some of the most notorious criminals of their time, including Machine Gun Kelly and gangster Al Capone.

The Island is located in the San Francisco Bay, 1.25 miles (2.01 km) offshore, so for visitors, you take the Alcatraz Ferry out to see the action.

We woke up to an incredibly foggy, hazy morning in San Francisco. The air was definitively cool. View Post

flying to the west coast

Confession time.

I’ve never been to the West Coast.

I mean, Joe likes to tell me that our stopover flight at LAX on the way to Hawaii for our honeymoon counts, but I don’t think so. My definition of visiting somewhere is um, physically leaving the airport. Maybe? (I should probably do a Twitter poll on this in the future) View Post
