•Sigh, seems that Tuesday blues are just as bad as Monday's when you return from a 4 day weekend, especially when it has been spent away. Istanbul was lovely; thick with an energetic atmosphere, buzzing at all hours and full of friendly faces. I was sooo happy the sun shined the whole time (could've been a disaster as getting around by boat is the easiest option for travel) and I didn't have to dig out an umbrella once.

You need to spend at least a week in Istanbul to see everything it has to offer, so 3 nights didn't really do it justice but my favourite spot was The House Cafe in Teşvikiye, the perfect place to get comfy with a Turkish coffee after lots of walking and do nothing but people watch in the peaceful tea gardens.

The shopping too is awesome by the way, just a shame we didn't have lots of time for it but aside from the familiar Zara (I picked up this jacket with leather sleeves on a quick rummage), Topshop and H&M stores, there is also Vero Moda, C&A (old school!), and Pull & Bear on the same high street level. If you have the budget, there is everything from Gucci to Prada, Miu Miu to DvF, Yves Saint Laurent to Chanel... The list goes on. Note to self: save next time!

Hope you don't all mind me sharing a few of my fave pics from the trip xoxo
