Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

My Food Story | Continental Breakfast

I’m sure at one point while staying at a hotel you have had this very light breakfast. For me however I’m always having this.  Here is my everyday continental breakfast staple.

Whether you are staying somewhere abroad or in your home country, I’m sure you have seen the traditional hotel continental breakfast. This is a light breakfast with some fresh orange juice or with coffee, a bread roll with butter and jam. So not a big blow out full English meal as you also often get with hotels.

I’m mentioning this as I often get asked by people on what I have every morning as my breakfast. It actually quite a topic of discussion – who have thought it. I admit I never have thought about what everyone has for breakfast. For me, it just a meal or a snack to stop you feeling hungry till lunch and one that you don’t really think about. As often in the morning you are half asleep and you need something quick to help wake you up.

So my answer is when people do ask me on what I have for breakfast, it always, ‘continental’. As I mentioned it quick, light, and help keep hunger at bay. I have been having continental breakfast for so long, I now don’t really think about it and it just a normal routine for me.

I first started having continental breakfast while I was at boarding school. We would wake up at the crack of dawn and go into the dining room to find a spread of croissants, bread rolls and pastries. And that would be our breakfast, often for me it would be the one meal I would have all day as I often never liked their other foods. The night staff would make us also have some fruit juice with our breakfast.

continental breakfast

It just continued as I got older, I would wake up (never at the crack of dawn – god I was so pleased to leave school as then I don’t have to wake up so bloody early!) and walk down to my local bakery to buy some pastries and fruit juice.

I also should mention that I hate cereal. I never been a cereal eater and for myself personally I don’t think there anything worst then eating sloppy wet oats or wheats first thing in the morning. Yes, I know all about the wonderful benefits that cereal has, but I just don’t like the taste.

That why I’m always having a continental breakfast. Richard doesn’t always join me; he prefers cereal or porridge. But he often does and it nice as we can eat breakfast together.

When we went traveling through Europe a few years ago, at every hotel we stayed at has a continental breakfast included into the board. Which was nice as it was a meal we didn’t have to worry about or paid extra for. Throughout my time I did eat a lot of croissants.

What do I have every morning as part of my continual breakfast routine. Its usually croissant with orange marmalade, fruit juice and a yogurt. Quite simple and plain really; But that how I like it.

So I’m asking you, what do you have every morning as your breakfast? And do you ever have a continental breakfast?

    This is so intriguing to me. We are quite the opposite, breakfast around here is a huge deal, and lunch is very simple. In the summer we are more continental with breakfast I suppose, but that’s mostly due to the heat. I enjoyed reading, and hearing your perspective!

    I love having a continental breakfast every so often, it feels like a total treat and reminds me of going on holiday!

    I actually don’t eat breakfast — I have found that I’m not hungry first thing in the morning, and if I do force myself to eat it seems to make me hungrier the rest of the day. So I’ve started skipping it most days and just eating an early larger lunch. 🙂

    I quite enjoy continental style breakfasts too! I love a good croissant, though some morning I’ll maybe just have a yoghurt or piece of toast if I’m at home. Not a fan of sloppy cereal either (though I get through lots of dry Frosties cereal – I eat it like popcorn with films in the evening…!) x

    I have a dairy and wheat allergy so I usually have a green juice or eggs. Boring, but satisfying.

    Supposedly we are told that breakfast is meant to be the most important meal of the day. However the truth for many of us is we all have busy lives and just have something fairly light to start the day, and move forward from there. So I can relate to this post a lot, even though many people have said to me that I should eat more in the mornings.

    I haven’t had a continental breakfast before, but I could get used to trying something new! The croissant looks delish! I usually have a slice of bread *toast* with strawberry jelly on it. Sometimes I do eat basic 4 or Rice Krispies Cereal!!
