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!

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…

ALLSAINTS EXCLUSIVE: Nala Sheepskin Jacket.


Nala Sheepskin Jacket, £750, AllSaints.com

 

I think it’s fair to say we’re going to be staying wintery for a while yet here in lovely (sunny-not-so-much) England, so keep the chill at bay in this amazing AllSaints sheepskin coat. The sheepskin is luxuriously soft and made from specially sourced Spanish sheepskin. The style itself is, as usual, an extremely unique but signature AllSaints shape.

It is a little on the pricey side, however, there were only 50 of this style made and it is exclusively available online at AllSaints.com Definitely an investment piece you’ll want to wear time and time again!

Since when was a one way ticket beyond expensive?!


In theory, single train tickets are ALWAYS the way to go when travelling by train; returns are usually trebble the cost. So we always buy two singles when train’ing it. I was just looking at flights to New York in October and thought it might be even cheaper to get two singles rather than a return… turns out buying a single ticket is BEYOND EXPENSIVE!

So in conclusion, including all taxes and fare surcharges, for 2 people RETURN it costs £669 (or thereabouts). For 2 people, for a SINGLE ticket to New York, including all taxes and surcharges it costs £1,219.14 (or thereabouts). ABSOLUTE FLIGHT FAIL.

So don’t go buying single tickets people, always buy a return.

That is all…

PS – I REFUSE to fly anywhere unless it’s with Virgin Airlines.

Go back in time for this seasons party dress…


From week one of the XFactor LIVE shows style icon, Cheryl Cole, proved to us all that this years XFactor would be all about runway style.

In the first of the live shows Cheryl wore an Altier Versace caged skirt dress – Your perfect party frock this season!

Cheryl can pull of near enough all lengths and widths of skirt, I was perplexed at how she would sit through the show in the dress mind – but hey ho, she managed a-ok!

The caged skirt look is a style that goes waaaaaaaaaay back to around the Victorian times when a crinoline (caged type structure) was added under a skirt to give volume and a very definite shape. This style was thought of as upper class and very feminine. The caged skirt is back in fashion, this time worn over the skirt so you are able to see the structure itself – clever ;o

I’ve had a scout about and found ASOS were the current stockist to go to for this seasons shape.

ASOS BLACK: Organza Caged Dress, £100

This ASOS.com organza plum dress – what a beaut! It looks fabulously more expensive than it is too – bonus round!

You can also buy the simple caged skirt…

ASOS BLACK: Crinoline Skirt, £65
