Harry Potter. Creating potions using a wand. Who could not love that? Well I surely do and this is actually a thing in The Cauldron, an immersive cocktail experience based in Dalston.
Upon arrival to the venue, you’ll be handed a box with a wand of special characteristics to use throughout the experience. You’ll proceed downstairs to your post and don a robe like you’ve just joined Hogwarts. The set up of the scene could easily pass for the Potions class held by Professor Snape in said establishment.
This week I visited Brew // LDN, a new craft beer festival launching in London for the first time this year. Behind it are the time from the annual Craft Beer Rising festival, which ran for the last time in 2019. BrewLDN is at the time the UK’s biggest craft beer festival, hosting more than 150 breweries and it took place at the Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch. Tickets cost between £15-£25 depending day and time of visit.
Hello all – this is my third collaboration with Femme Luxe, this time I’ve opted for choosing rather elegant items that also stand out. As I usually say in my hauls, Femme Luxe tends to look a bit (much) slinky but there are a few things that are actually pretty classy if you know how to look for them. I think this is my favourite Femme Luxe haul so far as everything I got is absolutely stunning. Take some searching but there’s definitely good stuff there.
Make sure you follow my 21buttons account as I post all of my outfits there, these included!
The first item and the star item of this haul is the White Mesh Polka Dot Extreme Ballon Sleeve Top. Needless to say this top caught everyone’s attention and I got endless compliments from it as I walked in it across London. Please note it’s totally see-through so you can wear with a nice bra directly or use a white or nude shirt below. It’s a definite statement item so best to style with something simple below, like black skinny trousers and black boots. It’s a great item to spice up a winter look. Quality seemed pretty good to me as well. This blouse was born to stand out.
Next up is also a top, similar to the polka dot blouse but a completely white one and with smaller sleeves. The White Polka Dot Mesh High Neck Top – Claudia is also a stunner and looks pretty classic when styled correctly. I didn’t like how the model is wearing it with a square string top as it makes it look tacky, I wore it with a white long sleeve t-shirt, nude trousers and a hat for a more sophisticated look, and loved the result. I could easily also wear this one for work while the White Mesh Polka Dot Extreme Ballon Sleeve Top one is a little bit too extra and could possibly affect my productivity if too many people are asking where I got it, lol.
Aveiro is one of the cities I visited between Lisbon and Porto in my 8 day trip around Portugal. Aveiro is a very beautiful city with enough things to do for a full day. I stayed in Aveiro for one day and two nights but one day and one night would have worked as well. You can also visit it as a day trip from Porto via a tour like this one here. See all things to do, where to stay and how to get to and around Aveiro in this post.

Visit the cute striped sea side houses at Costa Nova
Ok, I’ll admit that this was the reason I visited Aveiro. And it was Instagram heaven as I expected. These striped houses by the beach make the freshest photos ever. An important thing to note is that Costa Nova is not in Aveiro but getting to it is very easy either by car or local bus.
