Kylie has hit her 20's.


As of today (31/03/2014) I, Kylie, am now officially 20 years old. Have a 20 year old Kylie selfie! I feel the older I get, the less I make a big deal over my birthday. I mean when I was younger I literally counted down the months until my birthday but these past few years I haven't really realised how quickly my birthday has come! I didn't celebrate it last year and I didn't celebrate it again this year, mostly because I have a deadline tomorrow. Just spent some quality time by myself. I went to Starbucks for a Soya Hot Chocolate accompanied with a M&S Victoria Sponge slice - my very own birthday cake for one albeit without the 20 candles. I then spent the afternoon in the library and in the evening I spontaneously decided to hop on the DLR to go to Westfield, Stratford to have dinner (Pad Thai for one!) and some delicious Pinkberry froyo. Honestly, having some time to yourself is all you need sometimes - to do some thinking, reflecting, appreciating. Okay now I'm getting all philosophical... anyhow, thank you for all the kind birthday wishes on my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. :)

Street Food: Lobster Buoy.


I stumbled across another new stall I saw at the Greenwich Market today called "Lobster Buoy." It was nothing spectacular - just a nice, basic, lobster roll. Albeit a bit pricey for such a small portion. The next stall on my "to try list" is one selling Kimchi Burgers.

Dinner: The Byronosaurus Rex at Byron.


I went to Byron late Monday afternoon after my haircut to grab some late lunch/early dinner. I ordered the limited edition Byronosaurus Rex/B-Rex burger (only available from 25th February - 28th April) as well as some courgette fries. The courgette fries were the BOMB.

B-Rex - 6oz hamburger, onion ring, crispy smoked bacon, American cheese, jalapeños, pickles, onions, BBQ sauce and mayonnaise - £10.25

You know you're a foodie when you go into a restaurant by yourself and ask for a table for 1! But on another more serious note, I think I should go on a "restaurant" ban because I spend way too much money eating out lol.

An extremely overdue haircut.


I finally got my haircut today. For the first time in over 2 years. My hair used to be down to my bum and now it's an inch or so below my boob (as in the picture above). I was quite (very) nervous when I went into the hairdressers because honestly, I just don't like them. I literally walked in not knowing what I wanted other than having all my dead ends chopped off. I left it up to the hairdresser to decide what to do with my hair, all I told her was I wanted to keep as much of the length as possible. If I had to describe my hair pre-haircut it would be extremely thick, shapeless, very unmanageable and that there's a lot of it. I'm actually quite happy with the end result. I now have some long layers at the back of my hair and I also have some hair framing my face. I still think it needs some getting used to but at least I don't hate it. The best part is that my head no longer feels weighed down with copious amounts of hair. BUT (there is always a but when it comes to a haircut), it was hella expensive... I paid £46.40, which I personally think is really unreasonable for just a haircut. -_-

Pre-haircut vs. Post-haircut

New start (ish.)

Guys, I've lost all my photos from my posts in 2012-2013 because I didn't know Blogger was somehow synched with Google Plus (!!) and stuff happened and it resulted in all my posts pre-2014 being deleted. What even is Google Plus?! To this day, I still have no idea what its function is. -_-

Enough of me ranting, I mean it's not as if I can recover all my lost posts. Lets end this post on a high by saying how wonderful the weather is today?! I could actually go outside with no coat/jacket/scarf. I am ready to embrace spring in all its glory now. The sun makes me happy so here's a smiling "selfie," dimples and all. I've started taking more selfies since getting contacts, which, I have to mention, are pretty life changing (once you get the hang of putting them in your eyes that is - I still need like at least 10 mins to put my contacts in LOL). I'm really liking the natural "no make-up make-up" look nowadays.
