Review – Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon at Fortnum & Mason

Our friend Katie is getting married in a couple of weeks, and so to celebrate her with a little mini hen situation, we whisked her into central London to enjoy a beautiful Fortnum & Mason’s afternoon tea. First off, a disclaimer. We visited Fortnum & Mason during the height of Christmas shopping fever, so the […]

Review – Palm Court at the Langham

I used to work around the corner from The Langham hotel and would walk past it twice a day, trying to peek in to see the splendour inside (and of course celeb-watch!) I had heard great things about the afternoon tea there, and so, as a mid-year pick-me-up, we decided to pop in to sample […]

Review – The Grove Hotel

As the year has progressed, and it became clear that we were not going to be able to celebrate our birthdays as planned, or go abroad for our planned special holiday, I started to hatch a plan to have some fun closer to home. The Grove hotel is a luxury hotel based on the outskirts […]

Review – The Tiffany Blue Box Cafe

Dodging lockdowns like a ninja, I was really excited to be able to take my friend Angelica for a belated afternoon tea celebration at the Tiffany Blue Box cafe in Harrods! The entire cafe and afternoon tea menu is themed in the Tiffany blue, and so whilst I had of course heard excellent things about […]

Review – Core by Clare Smyth

Core by Clare Smyth is a two Michelin starred restaurant, nestled away in Notting Hill, and is hands down one of my favourite restaurants in London. Not only is Clare Smyth (a recipient of the World’s Best Female Chef Award!) at the helm, but literally everything about is perfection. The restaurant is small and understated […]

Review: Hide Above

We had a restaurant reservation for quite a while to go to the acclaimed Hide Above restaurant by Ollie Dabbous, in Green Park. With everything going on with COVID, we really weren’t sure if we should still go, but we decided to go via taxi to minimise interactions and to hope that the restaurant would […]

Review – El Pollote, Seven Dials

I really like Seven Dials Market, and not just cos its a stone’s throw away from my work. It’s actually an ex-banana warehouse, but instead of this just being a footnote in history, the market actually celebrates these beginnings by plastering a banana motif over just about everything. I love it 🍌🍌🍌🍌

I’ll be releasing the reviews in a twitter thread but I’m also gonna be adding them here, updating this post throughout the year.

Review – LookFantastic Beauty Advent Calendar

This year, I was indoctrinated into the world of beauty advent calendars, and man I am hooked. They are so much better than chocolate/food advent calendars. Why? Well, with a beauty calendar you’re getting 25 beauty products that you can experiment with and try out over weeks and weeks, versus some crappy chocolate that will […]
