Asia de Cuba Restaurant

I had been dying to dine at Asia de Cuba for a while but its combination of Cuban and Asian cuisine always managed to scare me into a safer alternative. However, since I found myself back in London for the summer, I figured I'd finally go for it! 

The eclectic decor can only be described as library meets portrait gallery while the entrance is littered with interesting props like this human-sized chess set. However, somehow it seems to work much like the food itself. After spending a few minutes decoding the menu, I finally settled on a starter of scallops and plantains as well as a dish aptly named "Chicken Milanasia" to share - both were delicious. If you're one for trying new things, this is definitely the place for you!

New Track: Giant in My Heart - Kiesza

To sum this up short and sweet, Canadian artist Kiesza's second single, 'Giant in My Heart' is 
one of my current favourite tunes. Tbh, I don't think it needs much of an intro, just a quick listen will surely make you see just why.

Oblix Restaurant

So this time last week, I was 32 floors above London soaking in the skyline. The views from Oblix at The Shard are beyond breathtaking, and the food even more so with the extensive cocktail and wine list adding to the opulent atmosphere. Despite mocking the seeming overuse of egg whites on the cocktail list, I have to admit that the Pomegranate was one of the best I've ever had! As you can see from our extensive table of food, there is more than enough to choose from on the menu with everything from steak tartare to duck with smoked carrots.

Le Specs Sunglasses

Le Specs has been loved by A-list celebrities like Rihanna and Kate Moss for years. However this year, the UK festival scene has been especially inundated with models, quasi-royals, and socialites such as the Delevingne sisters and Cressida Bonas rocking Le Specs sunglasses. These highly affordable sunglasses range from the bold and oversized to the feminine and subtle. Their range of reflective lenses also adds a much needed color boost to any summer wardrobe. 

I love the black "Bowie" and the ultra marine "Hey Macarena". Having just ordered both, I think it's fair to say that this brand has my endorsement!
