Stroll Around Downtown Athens

*LATE POST ALERT*

So this post is from way back before Christmas when the leaves were starting to change (as you will see from some of the pictures). A good friend of mine and myself headed downtown for lunch and also a nice wander around. She just got a new camera and so we also wanted to try it out! First shot was a mirror selfie!

We started off at Transmetropolitan for a late bite to eat.

My friend ordered one of their Calzones and I went with a Sicilian slice of the vegetarian pesto pizza. I can say we both had our bread intake for the week!

With full bellies we went for a stroll. It was such a nice day – blue skies, sun, and a crisp breeze! Here are some snaps from downtown Athens.

Finally, we made our way to Walker’s Pub for a coffee and a hot chocolate.

Right by Walker’s Pub is the best shoe repair place in Athens.

My friend had to drop off a pair of boots so we popped in quickly and while she handed them over I snapped a quick picture. When you get in there, shoes surround you! They are everywhere. However, they always do a great job and are very honest with you.

Italian Dinner

The other night after I got off work my husband, a friend of mine and myself all headed out for an Italian dinner. It wasn’t anything fancy but just a laid back evening with good food. We headed to Depalma’s, a restaurant a few minutes down the road from us, and settled in a booth with the menus on hand.

We started with some fresh bread and olive oil and also some housemade focaccia bread with spinach and smoked gouda sauce.

Starter

This was followed by fettuccine with meat sauce for myself.

Spaghetti with meat sauce and meatballs plus a side salad for my husband.

And Shrimp Charmaine for my friend Jill.

Shrimp

Shrimp Charmaine – sautéed shrimp with a spicy sun–dried tomato, spinach & jalapeño cream sauce over fettuccine.

Everything was covered with shredded parmesan cheese!

We also paired this with a bottle of red wine! Nothing fancy.

Dinner was followed by dessert (we went all out! ha). The Chocolate Torte, Zuppa Inglese, and Cannoli were all brought to the table and quickly devoured.

Dessert

Zuppa Inglese – Sponge cake soaked with rum and expresso topped with chocolate and vanilla mousses.

I kept the evening casual with jeans, a sweater, boots, and a hat.

Favourite Boots

Boots 2

Highland // Newbury // Lowland // Anouk Boot // Jayden Cross Engineer

Coleen Quilted Boot // Hunter // Apogee // 5050 // ‘Paddy’ Chelsea Boot // Western Booties

I LOVE boots! Here are some of my favourite boots that I have seen this season. Firstly, the over-the-knee boot. Stuart Weitzman’s Highland boot is everywhere right now and with good reason. This boot comes a few inches above the knee and fits like a legging. The heel is 3.5 inches, which makes it not only comfortable to walk in but a boot that can be dressed up or down. The colour choice is also fantastic (love the Topo and Charcoal). The Newbury boot is a classic and also one that is so comfortable. This boot looks great with jeans, a white tee and a blazer. The Lowland – with the Highland being so popular and perfect why not make one that is flat!? A good pair of black high-heeled boots is a must for every wardrobe. This pair fits the bill nicely. You can never go wrong with a pair of Frye boots. I have some similar to this in a light brown colour and wear them all the time. They are so comfy and are made really well.

A pair of flat riding boots is another great staple through the winter. I love the quilting on the back of these. The price is also great! Growing up in England we always had wellies. I love these Hunter ones. They make rainy days and walking through puddles so much more fun! They also come in some great colours. I love these suede booties. They look so sleek and sophisticated with dark skinny jeans. The suede is buttery soft and they are so easy to get on. Another classic – The 5050’s which are great over-the-knee boots but ones that are not to the thigh. I feel like you either love or hate Chelsea boots. For those of you who love them this is a great pair. Lastly, these cowboy-ish Chloe booties – I thought these were fun…however they do not come with a fun price tag!

What are some boots you love this season? Let me know in the comments section below.

Monthly Favourites – November

This post is a bit late (Thanksgiving threw me off with my posts) but here are my Monthly Favourites – November.

F84 F84 Close

This is my most reached for foundation brush F84 (I have had it for years)! I love how it buffs the foundation into the skins and gives a natural (non streaky) finish. I have a couple of the different ones that are in the same family (F80, F82, F86) and really like using them all but this is my favourite.

Ed Sheeran

Hozier

I have been listening to Ed Sheeran’s album non-stop since I downloaded it on iTunes. I think it is great. I have also really been enjoying the Hozier album. I downloaded it after hearing the “Take me to Church” song and hearing from a friend that the album was really good.

Candle

This Yankee Farmer’s Market candle was a gift and I burned it non-stop in November. It was the perfect scent to get you in the mood for Thanksgiving.

Shadow

This Cyber Lilac eye shadow is perfect for ladies with green eyes (and everyone else!). It is a pretty shimmer purple colour and I have really enjoyed wearing it lately.

Newbury Front Newbury Back

These Newbury boots have rave reviews online and I decided to order a pair and see how I liked them. I choose the grey pair with the piping because I have a black bootie that is very similar in shape and so wanted something a bit different. These were also on sale (I got them on shopbop during their cyber Monday sale – which lasted a few days) for over 50% off! They are made of Nubuck and are so soft and comfortable! I see why they have such great reviews!

Juicing

 

Juice

Finally, my last favourite is an item I have had for years! My husband and I got a juicer (sharper image – not sure the model) a few years ago as an engagement present from his parents. We both love juicing but hadn’t pulled it out for a few months….well that changed in November and we have been using it constantly!

I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving with friends and family! I cant believe it is already December. This year has gone by so fast.

Lots of Love,
