Been on the hunt for a pair of trendy sunglasses for a while now. I've always stuck to the aviator model and wanted to try a new one. I honestly don't even like wearing sunglasses.. I don't think I look good in them but I also think that they really complete a summer look. So I needed a new pair.
I checked out retail stores, drugstores and browsed through different markets and gave up after a few days. So when I casually walked through Spitalfields Market in Shoreditch I found this cool pair without even looking. But that's how things work right. Once you stop looking, you eventually find whatever you're looking for.
I love food. I'm a real food junkie. One of my favourite things during the weekends in London was visiting the markets, urban parts of the city and to eat, eat and eat.. And of course taking pictures of the food.
My friend Natalie made a travel bucket list, so I decided to make one too. I want this summer to be filled with traveling & adventure so I'll try to get the destinations off the list & enjoy life to the fullest.
Poor update, I know.. Follow me on Instagram - @isabeljarnstrom for daily updates. I am too busy working on the blog now but as soon as I got some time on my hands I will give my blog a makeover and start updating regularly.

90's style - choker & nails from Primark
These nails + adhesive cost me £1 & I didn't have high expectations on the quality. Turned out to be the opposite.
Tried bathing in seaweed from Urban Outiftters, which was relaxing. Beauty junk lipbalm from the same store and Charity Pot hand & body lotion from LUSH.
East London vibes
East London, Shoreditch is my favourite place in London. It has an urban and cool vibe to it in comparison to other places.
My new, fresh Nike Huaraches + Calvin socks.
If you ever go to London and need sneakers. Buy them! More affordable here than in other places. Huaraches from Footlocker and CK socks from Urban Outiftters.
Best pizza I ever had
At Pizza Express in Shoreditch. Spicy chilli and chicken pizza. Soo goood..
Love my yellow dress from bikbok. Summer is here!
New Sunglasses from Spitalfields Market, Shoreditch
My lovely friend Natalie paid me a visit.
We had a caramel & oreo cupcake from Hummingbird Bakery at Portobello Road.
Got up early, planning my writing schedule for May & blasting Wiz Khalifa - Elevated from the speakers. Got 3 days off work since 2nd May apparently is a bank holiday in the UK. Love that! I'mma relax all weekend, maybe go to Bricklane market, eat out and watch series. Also got the house for myself the whole weekend + monday. Time for some yoga, spa time and then I'll photograph some stuff for my insta & blog.
Visited the famous Portobello Road Market in Notting Hill last saturday. Been to it several times before but it's a great way to spend your weekend checking out all vintage stuff, having pizza slices and delicious churros. Bought some souvenirs for friends & family and some fresh veggies & fruits.

I'm all about feeling comfy in what I wear, so finding these zipper pants allow me to achieve the ultimate super comfy yet chic look. Matching all black with my leather jacket and white lace boot as a contrast to the blackness.

A few days ago I started wondering out of nowhere if I have a foundation brush or not? I have a memory of owning one from Make Up Forever but I wasn't sure. And to my big surprise, it turned up the day before yesterday and I got super excited. I bought it in Paris about 1,5 years ago and I haven't even used it. Simply because I prefer applying foundation with my fingers. But will give this one a try since it's super soft and good looking^^,
