Homeslice Pizza

I love finding new and fun restaurants and recently I discovered this little gem in Covent Garden! Over the last few years Homeslice Pizza wowed Londoners with their pizzas, selling slices on the streets and at food markets from their mobile oven. But in March this year they finally found a permanent home and opened their Homeslice Pizza Restaurant in colourful Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden.

The formula at Homeslice is simple; Pizza, Beer, Wine, Prosecco! BOOM :)



The cosy 50-seat restaurant menu is simple; they only offer about 5- 7 pizza choices a day. The classic Margarita is always on the menu but the other pizzas change regularly but think toppings like pork belly, courgette & artichoke or bone marrow. Yummm…..

Pricing is just as simple because a slice of pizza, a glass of prosecco or wine or a pint are all priced at £4 each, eat in or take away! Or you can go all out and order the massive 20-incher, which will feed you and 2 of yours friends easily for only £20.


I had booked a table for me and six of my girls (yes they take bookings for groups between 5 and 10 people!!) and whilst trying to decide what pizzas to order, we got stuck into the prosecco and wine, which they offer on tap. My kind of place….


To start us off we ordered 2x of the 20 inch pizzas to share and they even let us have half half toppings on these enormous thin-crust pizzas.



It all looked and smelled delicious so we couldn’t wait to dig in!


At Homeslice you eat pizza the best way, with your hands! They only offer paper plates and napkins and no cutlery so you just have to get your hands dirty.

After quickly demolishing those two massive pizzas, we decided to get another two. I mean at £20 a pizza it’s just too hard to resist and we just loved getting stuck in with the pizza cutters haha.



With our bellies very full of prosecco and pizza we were happy girls!! The waiter was very impressed with our pizza eating efforts and said we’d set a new woman vs pizza record. Hmmm I’m not really sure that was a compliment but hey we will take it anyway ;)


The staff at Homeslice Pizza are super friendly and service is quick, without making you feel rushed. Homeslice is perfect for a fun casual night out with friends and I will definitely be visiting again!

The ZARA sale

YES!! Hooray, it is here again. The ZARA sale officially kicked off in the UK  last Friday. So on my day off today (between starting my new job) I couldn’t help popping by my local ZARA store to see if I could score up any lovely bargains. With the ZARA sale you always have to be in quick because the best pieces and sizes sell out super fast!


 After trying on quite a few bits and pieces I decided to get these items….


White ruched sleeve top, now £5.99
Orange open back dress (link), now £29.99
Classic striped T-shirt (link), now £9.99
Yellow top with frilled sleeves (link), now £29.99

And then I spotted these shoes!! I’d been lusting after some ankle strap heels for a while now, but I find most ZARA shoes ridiculously high so I’d resisted to buy a pair, until now..


Ankle Strap Sandal (similar pair here), now £19.99


Now that’s a whole lotta leg! ;)

Loving my sale purchases.  Are you going to check out the ZARA sale?


Today is my very last day at my current job and as I look back over my two and a half years here; I can say I have some pretty amazing memories. But in all honestly a job is a just a job and in the end what makes it special are the people you spend your days with.

I have been SO very lucky that through this job I have met one of my best friends who I know will be in my life forever. Erin, this hump day is dedicated to you. You are the most wonderful lady and you bring a smile to my face every day. I will miss your laughter, your encouragement, your stories, your passion, your energy, your colorfulness (in both personality and clothing co-ordination) and seeing your gorgeous little face across the office every single day. However I know that this is not the end of our friendship and even though we won’t be working together anymore, please know that you hold a very special place in my heart and I am sure we will continue being friends until we are both old and grey. And who knows, maybe we will end up living together on that house boat in Amsterdam one day ;)


Erin, when I am with you, I’m always smiling. You just make my heart happy!!
Thank you for being my friend. Happy Hump Day :)


Summer Outfit & Make Up Look

Here just a quick picture post of a recent summer outfit & make up look. When the sun comes out I love wearing bright colours and my coral maxi skirts is one of my favourite items in my closet for a casual look on a summery (London) day. Makeup wise I kept it simple and light with just some sparkle on the eyes and clear glossy lips.
