Saturday night cap

31/07/2016

Last night I decided to drag Eva out for a little night cap. She’s been ill all week and sometimes (I find) it helps to dress up and go outside.. anything but being in the house in PJ’s. We went to Plateau, a restaurant and bar in Canada Square.Loved her furry outfit haha. We both love dressing in black but we’re still quite different in style!
Canary Wharf is super quiet and sleepy on the weekends so we didn’t stay out for too long. I definitely want to go back to Plateau though, the food looked delicious and the reviews seems good!

TGIF | West India Quay

31/07/2016

FRIDAY!
After work I met up with Mikaela and we walked straight to West India Quay, an area in Canary Wharf which doesn’t really feel like Canary Wharf. Outdoor seating, food and bar stall, boats and a wicked view.
I managed to talk her into ordering Pimms as she’d never had it before?! And luckily she liked it!After two pimms each on two empty stomachs we were giggly and hungry so we walked to the restaurant next door, La Tasca!We shared various tapas, drank sangria and caught a few pokemons (I don’t get it, but to see the joy on Mikaela’s face when she caught them all on or near me was satisfying haha)
Such a lovely spontaneous friday!

Grand Bazaar

31/07/2016

On Thursday this week I attended a lovely leaving dinner for my colleague J. We’ve worked together since I joined the company and he’s been my work-brother ever since. He’s been the one I rant to, go to for advice, rant to, eat with, discuss food with.. all kinds of stuff. We decided to go to Grand Bazaar, a turkish favourite near my previous office and where J used to work.
We ordered lots of various starters that we all shared, a main each (I had the Harem Kebab, yuuum) and to finish we had a few plates of baklava.Grand Bazaar is just on St Christopher’s place near Bond Street 🙂 The service was slightly slow but it was absolutely rammed after 6.30 (first picture is taken at 6). We all enjoyed the food and even our turkish colleague approved!

Lunch tip | Meal prep with chicken and sweet potatoes

26/07/2016

Last week I decided that regular square lunch boxes are boring and whenever I pinterest meal prep (pinterest addict) I see everyone using boxes with compartments. One compartment for protein, one for carbs and one for veggies.I bought these here (click) 10 for £13.95
I decided to marinate the chicken in the morning with Nandos medium sauce (if you don’t know about Nandos.. go away), spices and garlic. In the afternoon I boiled sweet potato, carrots and cooked the chicken. BAM, super easy!
Today’s lunch 🙂
Do you guys meal prep? If so, what do you usually cook? I’m going to need some inspiration to continue this.. Haha!

Saturday at Gymbox and Hyde Park

25/07/2016

On Saturday I met up with my coolest friend Albi and he is a member at the coolest gym in town called Gymbox and had a guest pass for me! yay! Gymbox basically looks like a club with machines and free weights.. it even has a dj during the weekdays?! After a good upper body session we had lunch at BenugoNext stop: Hyde Park. We walked all the way from Victoria to Serpentine (inside Hyde Park) not really knowing how far it actually was..

Maybe I’m being a complete prude but I am not swimming in that water ever again, haha. It was green and filled with millions of tiny lovely algae particles.. At one point both me and Albi felt something touch our legs.. Eeeeeewwwww. The good thing is that there was cold showers with clean water so after our swim we were able to wash it all off, phew.
After our little adventure we were joined by Matt and we all had an early dinner together 🙂IMG_3413
Apparently we were joined by a pokemon as well.. 😀
