Everything is hotter this June!

With the Summer in full force, we can finally say UK's been hit by the sun and for good this time. I don't see it disappearing any soon and fingers crossed to that! I have so many things planned for the Summer as it's the time of the year when I am full of energy and want to do anything and everything. If you're like me and hate being indoors in this hot weather, below are my Summer recommendations to how you could make your Summer a tad bit cooler.

Try out a new restaurant! It seems a bit too obvious but I am amazed at how many people I come across who don't experiment with food. I am a vegetarian, picky and trying to eat clean and still manage to find a tonne of superb spots in London to chill at. If you want to try genuine Indian Food and are looking for a relaxed yet chic atmosphere, head over to Roti Chai near Selfridges or Dishoom near Covent Garden. How about some delicious Dim Sum's at Ping Pong or some fresh (and chewy!) Bubble Tea at Bubbleology? I recently went to this place called Funky Brownz in Hendon and it was the perfect combination of fast food and Sheesha. Brilliant!

Fancy some whale watching? I do! I have been since a few months now and it's been on my birthday wishlist too but still hasn't come true. Sad times. But I WILL do it soon as Summer is the perfect time to spot them. From conversations with family and friends, I came to know that it's apparently an 'old people's thing to do'. Well that's what people perceive it as. Sure. I dare you to tell me that when a a whale or two starts dancing in front of your boat or even better, swims underneath it, with you biting off all your nails as it moves your floating device a little. Hah.

This is how it would be according to me...

But this is what could happen to you if you think it's an 'old peoples thing'. *evil laugh*

Pack your bags and take a trip abroad. Below are some of my favourite shots from my trip to Barcelona, Spain last Summer. I'm heading to Italy this August for a vacation and there cannot be a better thing to do in the Summer then experiencing Summer in a different country. It can be for a quick weekend or an entire week but heading to another nation gives you a whole new perspective and makes you even more energetic to spend the rest of your Summer in UK. If you have no plans to head out of country this season, I believe roof top cafes and bars are a hot spot to hang out in this weather with my favourite picks being The Boundary Rooftop, Radio at Me London and Hot Tub Cinema.

Retail therapy always works especially as you need revamp your wardrobe in the Summer and what are you going to wear to all those places I mentioned above! My favourite places to shop online are undoubtedly Look Fantastic, Chemist Direct, Topshop, Selfridges, H&M and Boohoo. If you're a retail therapy addict like me and leave Mr Postman wondering 'What the hell does she earn to order SO much every week?', have a look at the Barclaycard's hot offers this June to aid your spending limit a little. Who doesn't mind some extra cash eh?
