I was surprised to look out of my window this morning and see snow – I was hoping that we’d avoid having any. Not that I dislike the pretty covered streets and buildings, it’s just that it’s a pain to go out in unless you’re a child and school is cancelled 🙂 I on the otherhand will have to walk the streets sliding all over the place – now where did I put my wellies!
After being disappointed by Chanel’s pastel yellow nail polish “Mimosa” last summer (the bottle is lying full in my collection), I decided to give Chanel another chance and bought “May” last week. I’m glad that I did, it’s an absolutely gorgeous pastel pink colour that is opaque even after one coat. The best part is that it’s soo easy to apply (no streaking). Understandably a very popular colour, as there were only two left in my local Boots…
I must have walked past this restaurant hundreds of times, but this afternoon was the first time I had dined at this lovely restaurant. Located just off Kensington Church Street (High Street Kensington end), one of our colleagues recommended this to me and my other female colleague, Emma. As Emma is leaving for a new job in a couple of weeks, we thought we’d enjoy going out for lunch before she goes.
It’s really quaint inside, we were warmly greeted and although the place was reasonably busy, we managed to get a table. We looked at the lunch special menu, and we ordered steak and kidney pie (which came with free sides of peas & carrots). The plates that the food were served on were really cute (country style), and most importantly the pie and vegetables (which counted towards my 5 a day ;-)) was delicious. Obviously no meal is complete without a dessert and the waiters brought a blackboard to show us what was on offer, Emma had bread & butter pudding and I had apple crumble and cream – let’s just say, it didn’t take long before we finished! The lunch menu was reasonable in cost, our meals together with a drink (and service charge) came to about £20 each. All in all, both Emma and I thought the food and service was soo good, we’re making this one of our favourites.
Good hearty English food in heart of Kensington. Just BEAUTE 🙂
