London Weekends

When you think you're going to be a lazy bum and not do anything all day, and it turns out completely different…well today was on of those!

The only thing that got me out of the house was the weather! It was gloriously sunny in london and what else better to do on the perfect autumnal day?…head to the outdoor markets!

I have been eyeing something up for a while and finally took the plunge! 

Keep scrolling to find out what…

I have ordered from Biscuiteers for years and finally stumbled upon their shop! 

Biscuit Heaven!

Okay so here it goes… I spotted it!...

I saw other colours...

I tried it on...

Then went to HEAVEN!…

Then i had to put it down...

…and think about it...

But then I came across this BADASS! 
Unfortunately I would have to sell a limb but… not today, I'm afraid.
I had to bitterly hand it back to the vendor :(

We then ventured off for dinner and the movie, Gone Girl with my cousins :)
Perfect day for what was supposed to be, me hibernating at home. 



Candella Tea Room, Kensington

A couple of weeks ago, we made our way to a tiny, family run tea room on Kensington Church Street. I have walked and driven passed this place a million times yet I had never been in, until a couple of weeks ago.

It's a tea lovers dream, literally a hundred tea varieties, live pianist, with savoury and sweet options on the menu to choose from. 

I loved the tea, and would be back with friends for a catch up over some rare blends.

BEAST Night Of My Life

Part two of the Mister's birthday was dark, full of laughter and flavoursome...

Walking in the restaurant, you literally see the BEAST in the foyer where a kind hostess ushered us all to head to the floor below, down underground.

Once the hugs and air kisses were underway in the lift, we suddenly got the shock of seeing racks and racks of raw beef hanging right in front of us. To our astonishment, we stumble out and the next thing we see is tanks full of rather relaxed looking crabs. Rather perplexed, our host greeted us, and explained what was in store for us all that evening.

Huge, medieval communal dining tables, lined with dripping wax candles, and a invitation into the kitchen. What more could you want?

The birthday boy even got to hold his live dinner before it was served on his plate. 

Clearly someone is having too much fun, blurry pics and we haven't even ordered… haha

Starters were a mahoosive wedge of parmesan cheese, pickles and olives. 

This is where it began, they slowly started bringing over the steaks and king crabs.

The explanation of the feast...

Veggie galore. An unbeatable feast.

5 guys and this was the only decent photo of us. >_<
