Breakfast with Dorina at The Shard & Wishlist

Words can't describe how grateful I am when opportunities like this come up. Being invited to places like The Shard makes me realise where I started from in blogging and where I am now. Never stop chasing your dreams as one day, they'll come true if you work hard enough opportunities will come your way.

I was invited to breakfast with Dorina to celebrate the launch of their latest summer collection and what better place to have it than, The Shard. Emma and myself made our way to London Bridge in time for breakfast at 9am. Once inside, we had a walk around meeting all of the Dorina team and lots of amazing influencers. We also spent a while going through the underwear and bikini collection, taking turns to pick out our favourites. 

We sat around the table where there were boxes full of goodies from Dorina - we'd been totally spoilt! Whilst we were eating, we were all chatting around the table about adventures and experiences we had planned over the summer. There were a few influencers off to Bali and another had recently moved to LA so there were lots of exciting stuff going on. 

After breakfast, Emma and I made our way to Westminster where we spent the majority of our afternoon sightseeing and gathering lots of content. 

I'd love to say a huge thank you to Dorina for inviting me to have breakfast with you all at The Shard and I can't wait to fall in love with the next collection!


Here's a few of my top picks this summer from Dorina:

Visit to Pretty Little Thing's Showroom & Wishlist

Last week I paid a little visit to Pretty Little Thing with my bestie, Emma Corrie Hill. We were spending the day in London and thought I would be nice to pop in and see the girls again. When we got to the showroom, around the room were rails full of new summer and festival clothes for us to pick from. They were literally giving me all of the summer vibes that's for sure!

Me and Sam were in the process of booking a holiday at the time so I decided to go for some outfits that would be great for an evening abroad. The good news is, me and Sam finally managed to book our holiday and we actually fly out on the 20th May. Talk about last minute haha. 

With that, I thought I'd share a little summer shop with you to browse through. They're also the number one things on my wishlist at the moment.

Boohoo X Stefflon Don Launch Event & Wishlist

A few weeks back I was invited to the Boohoo event to celebrate the launch of Stefflon Don's new collection which was held in Libertine Club, London. It was an absolute honour to be invited by a company such as Boohoo to an event with an exclusive performance by Stefflon Don. As you know from the songs I'm forever posting on my insta stories, I love that kind of music and couldn't wait to she had up her sleeves.

I actually drove the event and managed to bag myself a car parking space right outside the club. I've been driving through London quite a lot recently and I'm quite liking it. I love being in the comfort of my own car and not restricted to train timetables.

Me and my friend Rosella Castellana watched Stefflon Don's performance and it was insaneeee! We managed to get a space right at the front and had the best view the whole way through. Stefflon Don is such a great performer and got the whole crowd involved which is always good. 

The collection dropped the day after the event and since then, they've been adding lots of new lines which I wanted to share with you all throughout my wish list below.

Have you shopped the collection yet? What do you think of it? Let me know in the comments below.

This Weeks Latest Accessories from Coconut Lane + Discount Code!

A few weeks back I decided to sell my iMac computer after having it for just one year. Throughout the 12 months of having it in one stationary position, I come to realise that I needed something a bit more practical, something that I could take everywhere with me as I'm always on the go. That's when I decided to also sell my MacBook Air and upgraded to the latest MacBook Pro.

As soon as I got my new laptop, I was so worried about not having a case for it as I know what I get like. In the past when I've been in a rush, I've thrown my old laptop in my bag next to one of my hairbrushes and pulled it out later with hundreds of scratches - I don't want to be doing that again! That's when I found the perfect one on Coconut Lane's website. Now with summer around the corner, I wanted a case that was a bit bright and colourful.

I carried on looking through Coconut Lane's website and came across the matching doughnut notepad that I fell in love with. You guys know I'm obsessed with my notepads so one more wouldn't harm haha.

If you're looking for some new accessories or heading abroad this summer, make sure you check out Coconut Lane's website as they've just released their latest travel collection and it's super cute! Oh and don't forget to use my discount code for 20% off your order 'robynbates20'.

5 Things I'm Loving this May

I'm quite impulsive and find myself slightly changing up my daily routine every so often to freshen things up and to implement new things. Sometimes I get to use to certain products or tasks so I like to  try out new things that may work for me. Here's a few things that I'm loving this month. 

Watching TOWIE whilst working out. When I was in senior school, I was addicted to TOWIE and wouldn't be able to miss one episode. Since I started blogging, my lifestyle became a bit hectic and I couldn't find myself committing to many TV programmes at their original scheduled times. Now I like to watch TOWIE on playback whilst I'm doing cardio in the gym. This may be whilst I'm doing a fat burner stop/start treadmill sprint or a fast paced incline walk. I started watching catch up TV as always avoided cardio so this helped to take my mind off of what I was actually doing. 

Keeping organised on my new MacBook laptop. I love being organised but I often found myself changing the way I plan things from using a traditional diary, to my iPad, to a notepad etc. Now that I have my new MacBook, I love keeping myself organised by using my reminders and calendar apps on a daily basis. 

Keeping my bedroom tidy. Since I started blogging, I noticed how messy I became with maintaining my bedroom. Over the past 2 years, I've had parcels scattered across my bedroom floor with no real organisation behind them. I've been trying my upmost best to put everything back in it's place and making sure everything has a home - not just the bedroom floor!

Keeping on top of my work tasks. Admittedly, sometimes I've let things slip and have found my to-do list pretty overwhelming. It's not necessarily a bad thing as I have lots of ideas and plans and just wanted to tick everyone of them off in one day. It's pretty impossible and sometimes I've not known where to start. The key is to take one step at a time and this month I've been doing a good job of staying on top of my work load. 

Editing my photos using Lightroom. Lightroom has been around for quite some time now but I always opted for using iPhone editing apps as they're quite straight forward and easy to use. A lot of my friends had started using Lightroom and I wanted to see what all the hype was about. Like with anything I do, I try my best to research before forking out on programmes and softwares. With that, I thought that downloading Lightroom would be a great alternative and I've been addicted ever since. I've discovered lots of new editing tools and I'm excited to create my own style and filter on things. 

What are you loving this month?
