Millie Mackintosh || My Top Picks

As if we needed another reason to love and envy Millie Mackintosh...

Obviously Millie first made herself known on MIC (Made in Chelsea for those who must have been living under a rock for the last few years) and since then I have personally stalked her every move - not in a creepy way, in a perfectly legal and healthy internet stalker kind of way. I love her style, her fitness ethic and how genuine Millie seems, also who can't envy Pro Green and Millie's marriage, they are so loved up, and enjoy having a giggle with each other, thankfully they are as addicted to Twitter and Instagram as I am to them, so I don't have to go long with a #TBT wedding pic, or a sneaky sleeping video! So imagine my delight when Millie was to launch her own clothing line!
Her website launched today (today also happens to be Millie and Pro Greens first wedding anniversary...*cough* stalker) and crashed shortly after due to popularity! and although I have had to spend my day earning pennies to be able to afford such luxuries, I managed to sneak a peek on my lunch break at the modest but gorgeous collection Millie has launched her website with, and oh my, I was not disappointed!
The website itself is chic, elegant, easy to navigate and has pictures of Millie everywhere! But if I was that gorgeous, I too would have photos of myself all over my website. The prices are at the top end of high street, but the pieces do look like quality items - I can't yet really judge as I have only seen the pictures, I'm sure time will tell.
Right enough of all that stuff, lets move onto my top picks of the collection!

My Pick of the Dresses - Bonded Scuba Prom Dress

My Pick of the Tops - X-over Drape Blouse

My Pick of the Separates - Animal Jersey Mini Skirt
2nd Pick of the Separates - PU Shorts
(Couldn't decide on just one!)
I hope to get my hands on a few of the pieces soon, let me know your favourites in the comments!

Café Britannia | Review

Yesterday I visited this lovely little café Britannia on Mousehold Heath in Norwich. My friend had already been once before and recommended the place, so before we went into the city for a bit of shopping we popped by with her little one for a late breakfast.
The Café is at Norwich prison and is staffed by inmates. All profits are given to charity/ community projects, including tips. The place is decorated beautifully - very British shabby chic, no two table sets are alike and there is even bunting! The café is has plenty of tables, a few couches and a lovely relaxed feel to it making it very welcoming.

We were there for a breakfast, but they also do lunches and afternoon tea. They had a varied selection for breakfast from full English to croissants. I was amazed at how reasonably priced everything was, my Princes (Full English) Breakfast, was under £4! It wouldn't have been a big enough portion for my finance, but for myself it was perfect, and for him they do larger breakfasts and you can add more of everything for an additional small cost.
They have seating outside also, allowing you to eat whilst looking over the city, I cant imagine a more picturesque place to enjoy a morning coffee in Norwich, even when the sun refuses to push past the clouds.
I would highly recommend a visit soon!
