Style Me Up, the London Way

When I think of London, I think of style, not necessarily stylish but style in its own right. From my experience, people are not afraid to dress as they please, with or without the influence of current trends. 

– I have a lovely memory of walking into my cousin's room, where she was sitting chatting to a friend while wearing a pair of jeans, t-shirt, dress on top, a hand drawn mustache above her top lip and something draped around her head. When I walked in, there was no reaction of anything out-of-the-ordinary, everything carried on as though she were wearing a conventional style of dress and no mustache... until of course I could not contain my giggles of admiration anymore and dashed out to grab my camera, to document that lovely moment of self-confidence and self-expression that I saw through her. –

London either encourages this self-expression of style, or people are just born with it. Next evidence of my London-style theory is Lewis Grant, Australian model and unique soul. From what I picked up, London definitely influenced this young man's style, and to be quite frank on the streets of Sydney to dress the way that Lewis does, can only be done by someone with confidence, strength and the need to express themselves through style. Although there has been a lovely wave of people inventing their own style in Sydney, looking to history for style influence rather than current, mass market trends, it can become quite tough facing people from certain suburbs that are aggressive towards non-conventional dress styles.

I wish to always surround myself by unique souls, people who are true to themselves and know what they like, which comes in hand with a confidence to move away from the conventional side of the 'safe mass-produced world'.

I finally tried the lovely Brooke Vardi's recipe yesterday. I've had the choped nuts and dates sitting in a container for a week, because when I went to make them last time I remembered that our blender died on me last time I was making pumpkin soup. So, finally with a new hand held blender instead, I got onto the rest of Brooke's wonderful recipe.

The green colour from the spirulina made this treats be a bit off-putting at first, and I must admit it took me three of them to get used to the flavour; but now I am hooked. I even made my mum try one last night and she seemed pretty worried (once again because of the green alien colour!) and probably because I was sitting next to her giggling like crazy; but when she reached for a couple more it was obvious that she liked them! 

I substituted the black sesame seeds on the outside with some more chia seeds, because sesame is bad for my blood type (I did however give in and put tahini in there, but put half a tablespoon less than Brooke's recipe). Also I added some dark chocolate chunks (any excuse to add some choc to a recipe) but it is definitely my favourite part, the crunching texturing of it along with its heavenly taste)

Also definitely check out the rest of Brooke's blog, it's filled with great ideas based on fashion, health (beauty tips too), travel and art; and she's such a lovely character with a beautiful energy about her.
