Millennial Style Guide: How to Look Your Best This Spring
Several months ago, during the most important fashion weeks, designers presented their spring collections and set the trends for the upcoming season. The spring is almost here so now is the perfect time to see which trends will stick around, especially when it comes to millennial fashion. Known as the generation who doesn't like to be told what to wear, like, or do, millennials are particularly picky when it comes to dressing. However, it turns out that certain trends are too adorable to be ditched, so here's how to look your best this spring.
Think pink
Two shades of pink dominated the fashion scene and imposed themselves as the colors for the spring of 2017 – one is ballet slippers blush-like pink and the other one is electric pink that brings the '90s fashion back to the scene. What's so special about it, you might ask? Well, for starters, it doesn't have that girly or feminine vibe pink is usually associated with. On the contrary – it's much more popular in boyish clothing, such as sweatshirts, and combined with not-so-girly materials, such as leather and faux leather. Find a bomber jacket or backpack in either of these shades and you'll surely turn some heads this spring.

Top 10 Favourite Places in London | CharlotteBehappy




Today I thought I'd thought I'd share some of my absolute favourite places to go in London. I've done my best to include travel information that would be useful, but usually I know this places by heart and I'm not the most knowledgable with roads and directions etc (so Google maps may be slightly more reliable).
You might see a recurring theme here of parks and outside places. Everywhere is free to visit, but obviously you've got to eat. This isn't the post for you if you're looking for museums and galleries, but it is for you if you want amazing views and beautiful places to go. The list isn't in any order, so here we go.

1. Primrose Hill/Camden/Regent's Park
Camden is probably the one place that we've all heard of and know as being 'cool'. Camden Town and market is all very nice (although expensive for a market). The houses around are beautiful, so it's well worth talking a walk around them and going to Primrose Hill. Primrose Hill is quite a small park compared to other ones on this list but there's a large hill which is definitely worth the trek. At the top are beautiful views of London, where you can see the BT tower, King's Cross St Pancras, the London Eye, the Shard and more. It's one of my favourite views in such a beautiful area. You can also see London Zoo, located in Regent's Park and it's easy to walk to it (and you can also see a few animals). Regent's Park is a massive park that has an open air theatre and beautiful well-kept areas with loads of flowers and fountains. To get to Primrose Hill, you can take the Northern Line to Chalk Farm or Camden Town and walk. Regent's Park can be reached by Regent's Park station (Bakerloo line) or from a walk from Camden.

Cambridge | CharlotteBehappy




So a few weeks ago, I had the chance to visit Cambridge.
I thought I'd share a few snaps from my visit as well as let you know some of the places we visited.

So we got a 9:00am train from Liverpool Street to the city centre. It was a pretty quick journey, and we arrived in about an hour. We then walked to the city centre which wasn't too far.
The first place we walked past was the Polar Museum at the Scott Polar Research Institute (where lectures were actually going on). This was a small museum with artefacts and art depicting different expeditions to the North and South Pole.
We then visited the Fitzwilliam Museum which is essentially the British museum of Cambridge. It has tonnes of art from ancient times as well as a few bits from various other time periods.
We then walked around the town centre, visited from Churches and Cathedrals, looked at the historic colleges (although we weren't allowed access to them), walked up the river past some punters, and found some food to eat.
We also visited a small museum called the Whipple Museum. This was a museum which documented the history of Science, and famous inventions which led to discoveries and advancements in the Scientific field.
 

Finally, we visited the Cambridge Botanic Gardens. This was no Kew (which I visited earlier this year - see here) but it was still beautiful and had some nice sites to see.
After that we sat in a Costa waiting for our train home.
