Coffee in Hoxton
I’ve finally found a place in London that sells my beloved cortado. The Fabrique bakery in Hoxton born out of Stockholm, is now bringing a bit of that Scandi cool to London. I’m so happy to have found this little place under the arches of Hoxton train station, where the five tables sit in a white tiled heaven, and if you are lucky enough to snag one, you can watch the bakers doing their thing while eating one of their kick ass cinnamon buns.

Vertigo inducing outings this weekend at the Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street, London.
I visited the Sky Bar on Saturday on an exploratory mission and it definitely didn’t disappoint. It offers up incredible panoramic views of London, with its modern structure complimented by a lush indoor garden. In addition to the Sky Bar there are two restaurants, but it’s free to visit the Sky Garden if you just want to check out the inner city greenery and killer views whilst enjoying a cocktail or a coffee. I bet it’s amazing by night too…an excuse to go back!

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 perfectly honest). Happy pancake flipping.

I was tipped off by an artist friend about the Richard Serra exhibition at The Gagosian Gallery on Britannia Street. Now it’s my turn to tip ya’ll off: the exhibition ends on the 4th of March, so get yourselves down there PDQ (that’s Pretty Darned Quick).
I also took my new ‘do into the outside world for the first time.

I’m a huge Elin Kling fan and managed to bag this cardigan from Toteme in their winter sale.

I visited the Saatchi gallery on Friday to see their new Pop Art exhibit. It included works by artists such as Jeff Koons, Ai Weiwei, Tom Sachs and so many others. It wasn’t what you would expect from the a standard pop art exhibit – yes, think colourful and think graphic – but this exhibit brings together works by artists from China, the Former Soviet Union, Taiwan, the UK and the USA in a conversation about differing ideologies. It offers up a very cool mix of interesting works, with the sculpture (first image) by Chinese artist He An being my absolute favourite.
Ironically, I went off afterwards and got a McDonald’s.
Wearing: Jumper from Topshop, Jeans from J.Crew and boots from Zara (old).

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 breakfast. The food was lovely, and if you are into design, I really recommend it as an interesting eating spot to visit at the weekend – especially with the gallery right next door.
