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!

Clearly, I need this helmet and matching bicycle….

oh dear. oh dear. CHANEL have branched out into LOADS of sports ‘gear’. I ACTUALLY need a helmet and this is thee one.

While I’m at it I might ‘upgrade’ my bicycle (Betty) to this swish new CHANEL (Coco) bicycle.

Well, one can but hope…

My Wardrobe Favourites: Bleeding CHANEL Tee.

Bleeding CHANEL Tee, £???.

I got this amazing CHANEL Tee for Christmas from James. It’s got a slashed neck which can sit off one/both shoulders; very pretty.

D.I.Y is definitely back in fashion…

The credit crunch has hit our wallets, but not our humour or aspiration for that quilted CHANEL bag!
