Did you say high tea darling?
I have already mentioned that I was totally spoilt for my birthday and my good friend Karen made sure that our mutual friends Hannah and Helen also got a decadent afternoon out. As we all have birthdays at the really inconvenient time of early January, Karen took us to The Dorchester for champagne high tea. While I am sure I looked like a big tourist, I managed to take a few photos of our afternoon. If you do go, try the Paris tea, it was our favourite and a personal recommendation from our waitress Celia.
Guaranteed fun night out!
You will need a pub, group friends, wine, pizza, plenty of board games and a cute dog for good measure. It was my birthday and I hate big parties where I am the centre of attention, so this year I wanted something low key and fun. I personally couldn’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday evening, except to be surrounded by good company and board games. Please note these are not all my photos as everyone picked up my camera at some point of the night and had a little play.
Tourist for the day
Sometimes I find it important to be a tourist for the day. London has so much to offer and it can be easy to get sidetracked with work and social activities. One of my favourite outings is a trip to Borough Market. I can still remember watching the first series of Naked Chef with my mum in Australia. I have been numerous times but it never fails to satisfy. Take a look my last quick trip.
Coffee addict loud & proud
What, another coffee blog? I know, I know, I am an addict but no trip to Borough Market is complete without a visit to Monmouth Coffee. Personally it is always my first and favourite stop, so you can understand why I thought it deserved it’s own little write up and photo shoot. I was introduced to Monmouth in Covent Garden when I first moved to London, gulp, almost nine years ago, and it is my favourite place to take friends when you need a good coffee and gossip session. My drink of choice is a black filter coffee.
