A couple of weeks ago my man and I escaped London for the weekend and hopped on to the Eurostar to Brussels. I hadn't been out of the UK since February when I went to Cape Town, and whilst it was a great holiday, I definitely did miss a summer getaway this year. So, when a too-good-to-miss offer from Eurostar popped up in my inbox, I couldn't say no.

Before this trip I'd never been to Belgium so was keen to see what the capital had to offer. Brussels is a pretty small city, which makes it perfect for a short break. Similar to many European cities, it's full of narrow cobbled streets, historic charm, patisseries, and a H&M on every corner. Oh, and every other building is a bar.

We mostly spent our time wandering the streets, exploring the city, stopping off for waffles and a tipple, and stocking up on chocolates to take home. The food was fantastic and overall, prices were cheaper than the likes of Paris, Barcelona and Rome.

These are just a few snaps from our trip but you really need to visit to appreciate it fully. I'll be popping up full outfit posts from my time there shortly!
