My Favorite/Most Instagrammable Restaurants in London

Fashion and Travel Blogger Glitter & Spice Shares Her Favorite Restaurants in London and Most Instagrammable Spots in London, England

In case you can’t tell, I was torn between two names for this post: my favorite restaurants in London versus the most Instagrammable restaurants in London. In the end, I decided on some combination of the two. Because why choose one when you can have both? (Shoutout to my dad for that nugget of wisdom)

While you’ve probably heard of some of these spots (or possibly even most of them if you’re a local!), I really tried to find a few restaurants off-the-beaten-path on my most recent trip to London. So there’s sure to be a restaurant or two even a true Londoner has never tried!

Keep reading for the full list and please share your favorite restaurants in London in the comments section! I’m always on the hunt for a new, delicious spot. Extra points to Gryffindor if I can add it to my list of the most Instagrammable restaurants in London too.

My Favorite Mobile Apps for Photo Editing

My Favorite Mobile Apps for Photo Editing | How I Edit My Photos | Editing Photos for Instagram

Today, I’m answering a question I get all the damn time. And I mean all. the. damn. time. Honestly. At least once a week, I receive a DM on Instagram, asking me what I use to edit my photos or for the best mobile apps for photo editing. And after answering this question literally 50+ times this summer, I thought it about time I just wrote a blog post.

So, today’s one of the rare blogging basics posts that were actually requested by my non-blogger followers! In this post, I’m going to explore all of my favorite mobile apps for photo editing, including apps that make my Instagram Stories look better and apps that I use to make me look better.

The Best Sun Safety Tips (With Help From a Pro!)

Best Sun Safety Tips for all skin tones | How to Choose Which Sunscreen to Buy | What Sunscreen is Best For You | Summer Skincare Tips for a Sunny Day

Okay…. yes, I meant to click “publish” on this post over a week ago. And then I encountered a few backend site issues / incompatibilities (ugh, Gutenberg). So it took me a little longer than originally planned to get this post launched. But now we’re here so YAY.

In case you didn’t know, August is summer sun safety month. To be honest, I didn’t know that either until my college bestie, Kristen (aka the founder of SnappyScreen), told me earlier this month. And I immediately jumped at the opportunity to work on a post with her / shoot the sh*% with her while she tries to keep me on task and talking about sun care and all I want to do is talk about food, travels, and rehash stories from college.

If you don’t know Kristen or her company, SnappyScreen, it’s basically being a spray tan booth, but for sunscreen (and this is why she’ll never hire me as her head of marketing). There are SnappyScreen devices at tons of resorts around the world, and they even make their own sunscreen called SunStyles which you can buy anywhere that has a SnappyScreen device. Kristen’s just about the most informed sunscreen expert I’ve ever encountered, so – to be honest – 99% of the best sun safety tips I share below are actually her best sun safety tips. So…. thanks for writing my blog post for me, Kristen!

The Comfiest Shoes for Summer Travels

Stylish Walking Shoes for Travel | Stylish Walking Shoes for Europe Womens | Women's Waterproof Shoes for Travel via travel and fashion blogger, Glitter & Spice

Hey there. Yep, it’s me. Still alive. Just been super busy (read more about what I’ve been busy doing here). While I got accustomed to working a 9-to-5 again (and to maintaining a more normal sleep schedule), I decided to take a break from the blog. Partially because I was too tired each night to write anything sensical, partially because I was really just looking out for y’all. I know, I’m so sweet.

To mark my return to the blogging world, I thought I’d share my top picks for the comfiest shoes for summer travels. Because I feel like just about everybody is on vacay celebrating pre-back-to-school right now. And I’m stuck reliving my June European Adventure in my dreams (#cubelife is my reality).

What to Buy on Prime Day 2018 (and What I Bought!)

Best Amazon Prime Day 2018 Deals | What to Buy on Amazon Prime Day | Best Dresses on Sale Right Now via fashion blogger Glitter & Spice

Happy Amazon Prime Day! The deals launched yesterday at noon Pacific time (2PM Central)… and since I wrote this blog post last night at around 8:30PM, there are probably a whooooole lotta deals I’m missing in my roundup that launched while I was sleeping! You can shop all of the deals by clicking here. Andddd you can shop the rest of my picks (again, all sourced last night so I might be missing a few!) here.

Before we dive in: you might recognize the location for today’s photos. Yep, these photos were taken when I went to Versailles last month. Why am I posting a LOFT dress taken at Versailles for Amazon Prime Day? Because today’s pretty much the closest I get to feeling like a pretty pretty princess / a big spender all year.

Vacuum? Add to cart. New TV? Pish posh, let’s do it – it’s basically free. Okay that brings my total to about 40% less than I had budgeted… so let’s grab a few more things BECAUSE WE CAN.

Or is that not how y’all shop?
