Zara September Looks

Zara’s september lookbooks offer something different to those of previous. Their selection of models represents a variety of ages and styles. With particular emphasise on this months coats. I have to say the images appear slick clean and professional keeping in line with the general marketing approach for Zara. Zara online is in fact one of the few online stores I feel confident in using, free returns and an email letting you know when your item will be delivered come in very handy if there’s ever a problem.

The whole range of clothes this season seem to bring back the simplicity and elegance of line. The knitwear is back in full force for winter with a range of cardigans and jumpers keeping you warm no matter the occasion. The series of images doesn’t manage to exhibit shoes very well yet they are clearly displayed with multiple images around the website.

Studs play a reoccurring role within the collection this september. In my opinion studs are often overused however the designers at Zara have used them in a minimalistic style.

Some of the coats such as the one on the bottom right are very eye-catching statement pieces and would probably have to be worn with very plain trousers. Not to say that for some of the clothes we have seen similar things before such as the silver jeans on the right are very reminiscent of some I purchased two years ago from Zara. That being said I think this fall Zara really have some great clothes, affordable? Not as much as in previous years yet I hope to see a good winter sale.

Notes Music Coffee (Covent Garden) Review


So round two of notable coffee shops around London, will soon be able to do a Limassol installment. Notes Music Coffee is a charming idea pulled together very well by the ambiance of the cafe. The jazzy music really calms you down from the rush of the street just outside and I can imagine this to be the perfect place to stop over on a rainy day. Yet whatever it is although all the elements of a great place are there and they are executed well something just seems a little off. At the back although almost empty when I first sat down I couldn’t help but feel there was a real lack of space.

I ordered and apple juice which I have to say was probably some of the best apple juice I had ever had and a chicken sandwich which was tasty yet while eating it the bread made it a little difficult to look elegant while eating. They had a Studio Ghibli film on in the background which added some charm to the atmosphere. The store they had chosen had plenty of old fashioned London character. Although if walking by again I would probably stop along I wouldn’t necessarily plan my day around stopping by here.

Pros

  • Great Music, some amazing jazz
  • Good food/drink
  • Nice film posters and soothing to see a film played in the background
  • Beautiful Chalk menus near entrance
  • Great building
  • Rustic and Warm Interior
  • Plenty of Seats available

Cons

  • Staff seemed slightly rushed
  • Seems a little tight near the back
  • A little Dark
  • Something seems to be missing
As you can see I’m only nit picking, I would still advise you dropping down for a visit and form your own opinion, I might just have to find out the playlist they have on during the day for some home listening.

Kitchen Italia Covent Garden, Birthday Celebrations + Review

So just recently me and my friends went on a quadruple event Pre Birthday Day. I had a great time and we went to check out the new Covent Garden branch of Kitchen Italia. It was pretty sweet, underground felt like a food speakeasy. Thought I’d give you a quick roundup of the good and bad.

Pros

  • Great Interior Design
  • Tasty Food
  • Reasonably Priced
  • Helpful Staff
  • Good Music
  • Awesome Neon Entrance Light
  • Good Location
  • No Service Charge! Thank goodness

Cons

  •  A little empty makes for odd atmosphere
  • Some portions are just under the perfect size
So there you have it! Would be a brilliant restaurant if there were a few more people to liven up the place! So if you’re in Covent Garden make sure to check this one out! Enjoy the photographs!

Tapped and Packed Coffee Shop Review

The big high street chains now dominate the coffee front, constantly launching new products, new sizes, new freebies, new offers, new food. It all just needs to slow down and get taken back to simple, good quality coffee. With a clean trendy interior and some good music. It’s not hard. Now I am by no means a coffee expert but I adore good coffee shops due to the atmosphere, the people sitting around. Tapped and Packed seemed to be brimming with conversation between the customers, it’s a really social environment.

The cutlery was a huge talking point for me and my friends. Very antique style, one even had Mickey and Minnie mouse on which was great for my Disney obsessed friend. I had a Latte and with two spoons of the charmingly rustic brown sugar on the table and it was very smooth, had an odd aftertaste but not unpleasant, that is probably because I’m a coffee newbie. The store has a modern yet slightly gothic design. I adored the tree trunk table in the center of the shop. The mirror on the right hand was a nice piece of eye candy. The lamps also very Iconic. I was rather stuffed from my birthday meal earlier so I couldn’t try the food. So to sum up:

Pros

  • Great Interior
  • Great Exterior
  • Real smooth coffee
  • Social atmosphere
  • Music played at the perfect volume
  • Good Location next to a Tube station
  • Reasonable Prices
Negatives
  • Can be hard to find a seat sometimes
  • 40p charge to pay with Card
