Playsuits are quite difficult to wear, and I bought this particular one from Topshop last year but never worn it until recently when my friend wanted to test their new camera out.
The length is a little short for walking down the street in!
It’s depressing knowing that shops are now stocking Autumn/Winter collections, thus emphaising the fact that summer is coming to an end…
However, on my way home from work yesterday, I popped into Kurt Geiger needing some dressy shoes, and my eyes were transfixed on their Leyla 50’s style pink suede court shoe (£90). The heel isn’t too high or too low, so would look perfect dressing up skinny jeans for an evening out, or lady-like glamour teamed with a fitted pencil skirt, pussy bow blouse and Affaire stockings from Wolford.
I don’t normally get excited about shoes but these are soo girly & add a pop of colour to any outfit…
Bakeries are my weakness, I love anything sweet like cakes 🙂 Inside the decor is modern, you can buy from a selection of fresh bread, pastries and cakes. I bought a medium slice of pizza and a warm croissant, both delicious, a friend had one of their sandwichs, but although he conceded it was a little pricey, he said it was delicious.
Although there isn’t much space for sitting inside, the premises has been cleverly designed with a small mezzanine level where there are a few tables and chairs, and outside on the street there are a few tables.
The only downside is that it can take a while to get served, it’s not the best in terms of service, but it’s certainly a yummy place to go to if you’re in the area.
Although I live in the area, I hadn’t heard of this restaurant until a recent date took me here. We had a shared starter and then a selection of different dishes (fish and chicken); the food was superb and the lady that served us was soo sweet and helpful. We were then joined by the owner, a glamourous and stunning woman, who got me a Baileys and we just enjoyed a brief chat before we left. The decor inside is neutral and modern, but the only thing that lets it down is that it’s on the basement level (no windows), so you don’t have any view of the outside, other than that, perfect location on High St Kensington. If you look at their website, you’ll find that Michael Winner (a hard critic to please, referring to his Dining Stars programme) wrote a review of the Papaya Tree in the Sunday Times: ‘It’s a simple place, but the taste of the food was excellent’ – which sums up the place very well, I think.
