My weekend in pictures including The Marylebone, Shake Shack and Hoxton Grill

28/02/2017

Good afternoon everyone!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend – I sure did 🙂 Unfortunately my week at work started off with complaints and negativity. Bleh. Anyway, here’s a long post about my weekend, haha.

On Friday I met up G after work and went to this pub in Notting Hill. We ended up staying there for a while and had food and desserts with two of his lovely colleagues.
On Saturday we woke up bright and early and went for a walk in Bermondsey (was meant to visit White Cube but it was closed) and bought this:YUM!
I then left G and went to The Marylebone, a bar/pub on Marylebone High Street, where a colleague celebrated his bday.I wore an off the shoulder top from Asos and my fave black jeans from ZaraShannon, Tamara and Hannah <3Birthday kid and his matesEmelie joined us as well! Yay!Someone (I think Khaled) ordered pizza and we dug in. Nom nom.
I had such a fun afternoon/evening at the bar with my colleagues and highly recommend The Marylebone for private parties! The room we were in had seating and tables and lots of floor space. The very patient bartenders were super helpful and in a good mood all afternoon (we were there for a while, haha). A massive thank you to them!

After a copious amount of cocktails I met up with G and we went to Shake Shack in Canary Wharf.
I ordered a Shackmeister and G ordered a double Smokeshack and a hot dog. This man can eat, I’m telling you!The burgers were insanely good (perhaps due to the alcohol levels in my body) and I would definitely go back. The service could’ve been better but I guess it’s not really a priority as it’s a “fast food” chain. Either way, it’s better than McD in my opinion!
On Sunday I made some kind of version of french toast and ate it with lots of cinnamon, jam and honey (not all at once) whilst watching Nocturnal Animals, a film directed by Tom Ford.
The film is about a woman who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, asking for her opinion. We follow her story as of right now, but also the manuscripts story – a story inside a story. It is violent and quite scary but also visually beautiful, thanks to Tom Ford. I highly recommend watching it!

G had been a little upset about the fact that I’d taken all my girls to Hoxton Grill but not him, so I booked a table for us to have their classic Sunday Roast.At Hoxton Grill we were joined by Nam 🙂I had the beef roast, G had the lamb and Nam ordered the veggie burger with sweet potatoes. The boys also shared a mac n cheese. Don’t know how they managed to eat it all.For dessert we shared a brownie with peppermint ice cream (do not recommend..) and carrot cake (do recommend!).In the evening we watched yet another film called Passengers, I’m sure you’ve all heard of it!
Passengers is about a spacecraft travelling to another planet with 5000 people, but malfunctions. Two passengers wakes up 90 years early and we get to follow their journey inside their very high tech new home.
Another film I definitely recommend!

That was my very productive but relaxed weekend 🙂 Puss!

Wishful thinking – Black boots

25/02/2017

Good morning!

Ah the search for the perfect black boots continues. As previously mentioned I want my future boots to be black (duh), have a heel (comfortable!) and look something like the ones below.

I quite like all of these but none of them really JUMPS out at me, you know? Argh. What brands do you recommend for simple black boots?
