The Ivy Restaurant And Bar – Round Two.


It’s my birthday tomorrow and James took me to The Ivy at the weekend to celebrate. We went this time last year; so we’ve now decided to make it a bit of an annual event for my birthday. (This time it took 8 weeks of desperately trying to get dinner reservations! AND we booked 2 months in advance! CRAZY). We had the most amazing meal, I just had to share!

To start I had the Buffalo mozzarella with foccacia, crushed broad bean pesto and vine tomatoes. While James had the grilled squid, chorizo and parsley salad. For mains I had Cornish lamb with sweetbreads & broad bean fricassée. I have to say, the lamb is served pink – this is the most amazing lamb I’ve ever ever aten. Absolutely amazing. I might also add, until I went back onto The Ivy website, I believed my lamb was served on a bed of Fois Gras… I just googled ‘sweetbreads’ and found this definition on Wiki. MENTAL. James had a rib eye steak, which has to be the biggest steak I’ve ever seen! It was huuuuuge! And beyond tasty! This came with a side of fries.

We then had an espresso each before squaring up the bill… Then we moved into The Ivy bar and had a round of cocktails.

Absolutely 5 star food with 5 star service. Brilliant. I can’t wait to go again next year! See you then The Ivy!

Born, June of ’86, my birthdays coming…


You’ve gotta a lotta lotta nerve. Coming here when I’m still with him. And I can’t have you, it isn’t fair. Born March of ’86, my birthday’s coming. And if I had one wish, yeah, you’d be it. When you’re ’round I lose myself inside your mouth. You’ve got brown eyes. Like no one else. Baby make it to me. Again and again. Again, again, again, again. Never stop again and again. Again, again, a-a-again, again. Never stop. Oh he never really saw me. Or waited when we were hooking up. Yeah he’d a never last… last week when I was sad. You said that you knew. My eyes change from kinda green to kind blue.

New Purse: CHANEL Zipped Wallet.


It’s my birthday coming up and well, my Vivienne Westwood purse is on it’s last legs really;/ SO I thought it might be the perfect opportunity to grow my CHANEL family.

After looking at lots of leather goods I’ve found my perfect purse – The CHANEL Zipped Wallet in Caviar leather – to match my Caviar 2.55, which also has gold hardware. BOOM.

One slight issue – can’t find the cost online, anyone know this?

Model: A13228 Y01864 94305

Also, which is the best London boutique these days? When I got my 2.55 Bond Street was best…
