PANCAKE DAY

Pancake day = sugar overload this year. This pancake day I went for Donna Hay’s Buttermilk pancakes which were definitely a winner.  Got a little over excited with the pancake toppings this year. Maple syrup, lemon & sugar, nutella and I also bought a jar of Cutter & Squidge sea salted caramel which is insane on pancakes (or just on its own to be…

BREAKFAST

Hearts Heart shaped toast & some Daylesford juice for Valentine’s Day. What more could a girl want?

The Magazine Restaurant

Breakfast On Saturday I went for breakfast at The Magazine Restaurant at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery in Hyde Park. Designed by Zaha Hadid in what they call ‘a synthesis of old and new,’ it was quite incredibly crafted, with cool, spaceship-like architecture. We went early on Saturday, as per my father’s request, so we enjoyed almost-private dining until about 10am, when it started hotting up for…

Its like a little slice of Beijing in South London and in our book Mama Lan is…

After a long wait, I’ve finally got my hands on some. I went by the Bulldog Edition, where not only are they selling the bars but also the Mast Brothers famous brewed chocolate, which I felt…

London Brunch

RECOMMENDING |  Brunswick House Cafe Restaurant at Lassco I visited Lassco today and had some brunch at their Brunswick House Cafe. Eating bacon sandwiches with spicy ketchup set in a crumbling Georgian townhouse, complete with cool cuban vibes. Lassco is totally worth exploring as well if you like yourself some architectural salvage.

FIKA

Fika @ Snickarbacken 7, I spent this past weekend in Stockholm with my family where we visited Snickarbacken 7 in Ostermalm. Coffee is a huge phenomenon in Sweden, so much that they even have a word for ‘doing coffee’ – Fika. It was very cosy, and had a very east London hipster vibe about it with artworks on the walls and low lighting. I’ve never been…

Frukost med Styleby

Breakfast  This mornings breakfast was accompanied by the latest issue of Elin Kling’s Styleby magazine that I picked up whilst in Stockholm this weekend as well as some of the postcards I bought from the Horst exhibit at the V&A yesterday.
