One look that I have been seeing around the internet and seems to becoming quite popular is the combination of stripes and bright colours. Some fashion combinations such as colour blocking, stripes and florals and clashing prints have passed me by and personally I’m not sure if I could pass them off successfully, however this is something that I could get on board with.
Here’s some of my favourites from the stripes and brights fashion brigade:
I really do love this look and you don’t even have to embrace it full. You could simply wear a nautical dress and pair it with some bright coloured shoes or a bright bag to still get that stripes and brights look. I think I may have to hit the shops this weekend as this is such a great spring/summer look that anyone can pull off, even me.
Do you like clashing two different looks in your outfits?
When Itsu opened up it’s doors in Oxford before Christmas I whipped in through those doors like a hurricane. I’m a massive sushi fan and had heard really good recommendations about this companies food and seen plenty of photos of their food on my Instagram feed via other bloggers.
The lovely people at Itsu contacted me to review some of their products in their snack range – of course I said ‘yes’ in a shot! I received boxes of the dark chocolate covered edamame beans, wasabi peas, honey cashews, crispy sea weed thins which are part of the bite size range and also a miso soup pouch.
I devoured the dark chocolate covered edamame beans almost instantly as they reminded me of the ones that I bought from Trader Joes a few years back – how I wished we had a Trader Joe’s in the UK. The dark chocolate was lovely and bitter and the beans inside had a nutty texture. These are incredibly moreish so I’m glad that they came in a small sized box.
The honey cashews fell straight into Alfie’s arms as he loves honey covered macadamia nuts so these were definitely for him. They didn’t last very long I can tell you, so they must have been good. I tried the crispy seaweed thins broken up over a salad they added a lovely crunchy texture.
I have yet to try the Miso soup and wasabi peas aren’t really my thing so I can’t really comment on these. There have been too many bad experiences with wasbi sauce with my sushi that I don’t care to remember, so the peas aren’t really my cup of tea.
Overall, I was quite impressed with this range of products and I love Itsu’s philosophy of ‘eat beautiful’ and they have extended this to their snack rages too – creating healthy snacks for when you are on the go. The price list quoted on their new online grocery site are for cases of products, however I know that these are available in individual packets from their restaurants and I have also recently seen them in Sainsbury’s.

One of the things that I have learnt the hard way and still learning what works best for me is how to fuel my workouts. There have been times where my stomach has growled at me in anger as I haven’t eaten enough to fuel my workouts and other times when I have felt queasy […]
