I know it was a little while ago that I went to Turkey now but I was just looking through some photos and I wanted to share with you all the most beautiful place I have ever been to. It was like something I have dreamed of, or those photos you see on Tumblr and think 'man, I hope I'm lucky enough to go there one day'. So here it is - the Balin restaurant in Beyobasi
Situated by the coldest river ever in the mountains this restaurant is also a trout and chicken farm. All the tables are around and over the river, underneath the trees. There's no menu, you are simply asked on arrival 'chicken or fish' and you can watch the owners wife fish one of the trout out of the pools next to your table and fillet it then and there. As a veggie we went for some freshly made bread (still warm out of the oven), home-made baklava and cheese rolls. All washed down with plenty of chai, of course.
We particularly liked the rope swings. The waiters had fun swinging us over the river the hardest they could!
I could have sat here all day!

Having said that we would visit each others home towns a year and a half ago, I finally followed my house-mate, Laura, back to Shropshire for the weekend. After doing a good bit of shopping in lovely boutiques and being tourists around the gardens and castle ruins in town we settled down to a cream tea in the cutest little cafe I have ever been to (and I've been to a few!)...
My dress is Zara, kimono is ASOS and my necklace was from a stall in Camden. Laura is wearing an outfit which she bought that day in Wildheart boutique in Bridgnorth.
If I could have sat there for the rest of the day (or the rest of my life...) without getting rained on I so would have. Beautiful!

Last weekend my folks came down to London for the day before they headed off to the airport so this gave me an excuse to be a total tourist for the day. My favourite! The weather, unexpectedly turned out to be beautiful so we headed to Hyde Park. I've never been to this side of the park before and we found the most beautiful gardens next to the pond.
I'm wearing my favourite urban outfitters dress, office sandals, topshop bag and shoddy & mungo necklace (made by my mums clever friend!)
After admiring the water lilies and watching this little critter refurbishing his home for far too long we headed over to the Serpentine Gallery where they have their annual pavilion for a cup of posh tea.
