Most loved II

I really liked making my previous most loved post, so here's another one! Here are my most loved items of the past few days/weeks:

Accessory: H&M hair ties
I included some cute tie dye hair ties from Oysho in my Look elsewhere for sportswear post. Of course I couldn't justify placing an online order for a few silly hair-ties, so I was happy when I found these hair-ties in H&M, in every colour of the rainbow! Soft enough to wear around your wrist and perfect for the summer. I love the colours!

Fruit: Indian mangoes
I've been eating Indian mangoes for as long as I can remember. Living in a city with a huge Indian community, we were always lucky enough to get boxes and boxes of this Indian gold around this time of year. Indian mangoes cannot be found in supermarkets because they ripen very quickly, unlike African mangoes. They are very sweet and so full of flavour/scent. Last time I was in Belgium, I packed 6 mangoes for London, a little saddened about the prospect of finishing the last one. So you can imagine my shock/surprise/excitement when I found Indian mangoes in a little supermarket on Brick Lane. I'm starting to think you can find everything in London.. Best mangoes ever!

Music: Daft Punk
I used to be a huge Daft Punk lover but over the past few years I kind of forgot about it. But thanks to 'Get Lucky' my Daft Punk love has been rekindled once again. The new album is not my favourite (too funky and disco, but I'll give it another try), but I still love listening to Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger , Face to Face and my number one favourite Aerodynamic - Daft Punk Remix. Of course Get Lucky (the album version) is my summer jam!

Sport: tennis
Tennis is the one and only sport I've continued to play since I was very little, and the one sport I actually love. After a 2 year break, I've finally started playing again and it seems like I haven't completely lost my skills. My partner in crime and I play in Regent's Park and we're loving it. It's never too busy, the courts are in good condition (I still would have preferred gravel instead of cement) and it's easy to book a court. I'm definitely planning on playing more this summer!
My tennis essentials ;)
Store: Foyles Charing Cross Road
London's biggest bookstore which has nearly every book you're looking for. I have a list of books I want to read this summer but my dad bought me a book with 1300 pages that will keep me busy for a while. It's called 'London' by Edward Rutherfurd and I can't wait to start reading it.

Picnick spot: Primrose Hill
No doubt the best spot for a sunny picnic with an amazing view over Regent's Park and London's landmarks. 

Beauty product: Bioderma Sensibio H2O
I'm doing an updated skin care routine soon, where I'll review this product. But ever since I bought it back in April, I've been loving Bioderma's solution micellaire. This 'water' removes make-up like a dream. It's available in Belgian pharmacies and soon in London (it's sold in some independent London pharmacies).
