Hunting for balls in Soho
(And other stories)

Balls-Bros-Soho

Balls: Balls Bros | Sunnies: Chanel

I often find myself running around Soho for various meetings and whatnot, and I’m lucky that I have a few dear pals who work in the area, who can skip out of their offices and come and meet me on their lunch breaks…

I am therefore always on the hunt for new spots for lunch in Soho, and love hearing about new cafes that have popped up (and always sad to hear when one has popped down).

A stroll, some sunshine and
lunch at Goode & Wright, Portobello

Goode and Wright

Today I found myself back on Portobello Road, where I haven’t been for a few weeks… I’d missed it. I do think that the sun always seems to shine down on the Bello, no matter what the weather. It could be snowing in Walthamstow and I’m pretty confident that it would be blue skies and carnivals in W11.

Nordic Afternoon Tea
at Aster, Victoria

Nordic Afternoon Tea Aster Victoria

Some of my dearest people come from Norway, with one special girl in particular, who knows me even better than perhaps I know myself. She’s one of those. Any time I hear Norwegian, or Swedish being spoken on the tube or in a cafe, I think of her and wish I could just pop round for a cup of tea.

But it’s a bit tricky, what with the whole ‘other country’ thing and lack of private jet.

Bonnie Gull – an actual seafood shack
(in Soho)

Bonnie-Gull-Soho-Seafood8

I’m allergic to oysters. And Chloé is allergic to crab and lobster. So we thought we’d make the perfect pair to pop into Bonnie Gull‘s seafood shack in Soho and between us, try as many of the dishes as we could possibly manage.

And we loved it.

Les 110 Taillevent

I must apologise to you for the delay with this write up. You saw it on my insta stories, you fell in love, I promised you a piece on my blog that weekend… and then life happened and everything in my world came to a bit of a grinding halt.

So for the past few weeks I have been playing catch up like I’ve never played before – I’m juggling balls like a (semi) pro circus act and I have most certainly dropped a fair few along the way… (I said semi).

Lunch at Coppa Club, Market Place

Coppa Club

Last week I met my cousin Rosie for a quick al fresco lunch in between meetings. As we were both around Oxford Circus on that day, we headed to one of Market Place’s newest arrivals and took full advantage of the glorious weather, settling ourselves outside at Coppa Club.

Friends, Fish & Flamingos
at Babylon, Kensington Roof Gardens

 

Babylon Kensington Roof Gardens

Enough of this grizzly weather – it’s Summer over at Babylon. And there are flamingos too. So ditch the umbrella, head over to Kensington and hop in the magic lift, which will whizz you up 100ft to the magnificent hidden gardens, where cocktails are flowing and seafood tastes as though it was caught in the ocean just 5 minutes earlier…

Berlin Brünch has arrived
at German Gymnasium

German Gymnasium

I have never taken a trip to Berlin (I REALLY want to go) but even though I’ve never been, the whispers of the legend of their famous brunch has travelled over the seas and is something I’ve always longed to indulge in… (not the main reason I want to go to Berlin, but yes, it’s up there).

The Shed, Notting Hill

The Shed Notting Hill

I’d been meaning to go to The Shed for ages, ever since one of my friends visited and then didn’t stop talking about it… for a long time, actually. I think she still is.

I knew it was going to be special and I knew that it was going to be delicious… but what I wasn’t prepared for was how fun and barnyard-chic it was inside and how absolutely beautiful and PRETTY every dish was…

Supper at Sea Grill,
Puente Romano, Marbella

Puente Romano Sea Grill

This afternoon I boarded a plane, which flew me through the skies (clever) and landed me a short drive away from the Puente Romano Beach Resort and Spa in Marbella…

We arrived at sunset and by the time we’d arrived at the hotel it was all very dark outside, so I haven’t yet taken any photographs of the resort itself… I can’t wait to open my curtains in the morning and see the sun pouring in!

Pancakes in London: my ultimate list

Tom's Kitchen

Pancakes at Tom’s Kitchen

Toot toot! Pancake day is on its way and when it comes to crepes and pancakes in London, I am proud to say that I am extremely well informed… it comes from years of experience and dedicated research… which is very hard work and I’m sure you all feel very sorry for me.

This is a list of my favourite pancake haunts in London, which includes the crepe stand in Hampstead, where I first discovered, aged 14, the joy of nutella with banana… and sitting on a bench to eat it, in the rain, with a bestie.
