Happy weekend everyone! I headed to the East London on Saturday, exploring bricklane, one of my favourite vintage markets in London. It’s bit chill today and I fancy for a cup of coffee to warm up ourselves. I found an unique spot in Boxpark, Shoreditch- it’s #guardiancoffee shop. Oh ya it’s served coffee of course… from Nude Espresso. And that must be some kind of purpose putting the hashtag at their name? As it is quoted from their website,
“#guardiancoffee is a brand new, caffeine-infused pop-up destination here in the heart of East London’s creative technology community. Launched in partnership with EE, #guardiancoffee welcomes anyone and everyone to drop by to debate the issues pertinent to the UK’s tech sector, share ideas and opinions, or simply enjoy a great cup of coffee.”
So, it’s tech coffee pop up shop. Once you enter the place, there is a big projector data displaying news, tweets and blog, etc. Then all the tables have a tablet which you could read news or browsing while enjoying a cup of coffee.
This place is designed very minimalist with wooden table, bench and floor. And spot the brand with initial ‘G’ from Guardian everywhere and blue colour from illustrations on the wall.
I would like to share my weekend outfits. Today’s theme is casual effortlessness and layer it up!

As the climax to end the year 2013, I headed out to France early morning of 24th December to spend christmas eve with Victor’s families. The last few weeks of December had been such a crazy whirlwind at work, and I’m looking forward to christmas holiday. It turned out to be a lovely and very relaxing holiday. I felt bit nervous seeing his whole families at first time but they are very sweet. I extremely enjoyed festive foods and mouthwatering french foods. I am signed in as a french food lover! Here’s the recap some of my favorites:
Victor said I won’t miss scallops and snails during this festive season. Some of people might find it terrible but definitely not for me!
We headed to Franche-Comte, a countryside in France where most of Victor’s families live. They have good camping bread, cheese, champagne and wine.

Long time during medieval people in France-Switzerland mountains melt their ‘bad cheese’ and eat along with meats. Nowadays, people melt their good cheese and eat as meals.
Typical french festive cakes/ ice cream cakes. No wonder why my jeans get tighter after eat!
Another french tradition- the first sunday after Christmas, they share a piece of almond cake in family or school. If you are lucky you will find a figure in a piece of cake that you eat. Then you will be entitled as a king/ queen with crown of course! And you may select your king or queen and give a special kiss! French kiss maybe?
And I’ve got it!
I wish you all have an ultimate holiday! x
I’ve found a nice quote to welcome this year 2014-
“You know you’re on the right track when you become uninterested in looking back.”
2013 has been super amazing for me! I’ve got my sponsorship visa to stay in UK, love my job, start business with my great boyfriend and I can’t even mentioned how many times life has been so good to me! I am so grateful for what I have been achieved in last year.
Wish a very Happy New Year 2014! Hope it turns out to be our best year ever!
