Hummingbird Bakery: Portobello Road.


Last weekend we ventured to Notting Hill for a ‘day out’. We were walking down Portobello Road when we saw that the queue outside the Hummingbird Bakery wasn’t as massive as usual; so we queued up.

The bakery itself is pretty small (ALWAYS expect to queue by the way) but when we got inside we were greeted by an amazing aray of cupcakes, carrot cakes, birthday cakes… the lot!

We eventually decided on two cups of tea and the below amazing treats!

I had the Chocolate cupcake with blue vanilla (tasted kind of coconutty – yum yum!) frosting; while James went straight for the Chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting.

Although they were absolutely marvellous, I could literally only eat half of mine. I thought I was going to have a heart attack the frosting was so overwhelming!

But what a treat! Next stop: The Magnolia Bakery: Bleeker Street.

WHO KILLED SUMMER? PARTY @ THE OLD BLUE LAST, LONDON.

You may have been reading about Who Killed Summer, or as it is also affectionately known as WKS09 on my blog; well if you haven’t, WKS is  “an interactive murder mystery online reality TV show drama series where “six hot young music lovers from across Europe are brought together by Vodafone for the summer of their lives” as quoted by Vice Magazine.

Anyway, this week the WKS09 cast and crew held a party at the Old Blue Last boozer in East London as a ‘task’ that is featured in the latest episode of the show. We went along and joined the crowd as actual EXTRA’s as the party was being filmed for the show! EXCELLENT! There were several bands and DJ’s that played, my absolute highlight being Mike Passenger – whom I have not stopped talking about since Thursday! We’re waiting for his album to drop through our letterbox any day now, when it does I will give a full review. He was absolutely breathtakingly amazing! Had a great night! Thanks guys!

So I thought that while I was there I would have a snoot about the fashionable lot and I’ve picked my fave people below, if you were there/if I’ve picked you as a fashionable person, let me know so I can credit you as being wholly style-full!

Could not help but notice the abundance of AllSaints merch at the party either! Boom! Tete was wearing the ‘Canvas Slip Boot’, which might I add look amazing on, and she told me they were really comfy too! Bonus time! Billy wears the ‘Strike High Top’ trainer.

We all know Jude’s fave brand is AllSaints too, so I wasn’t surprised to see him head to foot in AllSaints attire under his very chic hot dog costume! Jude was wearing the Mens Military Boots, Checked ‘Confederate’ Shirt and Mens Skinny Jeans!

I think that Billy must have been raiding Jude wardrobe too! Billy was wearing the ‘Confed Tee’, which I’m tempted to by myself! Love it!

What a busy busy week! Just got in from a wonderful bicycle ride…


camdenbikeride

We’ve just got in from a lovely bicycle ride along the canal to Camden and back. We had an amazing picnic courtesy of Marks and Spencers in Regents Park and a Iced Latte a la Starbucks. Thanks! Had a crazily busy week this past week, lots to report on which I will indeed do so in due course!

So as aforementioned, work has been super busy! And I think this week will be even busier! Especially as its Bank Holiday Monday today, so we only have a 4 day week! Excellent! Loving work though, lots to do and it’s all very varied which keeps me very quiet… hah.

It’s been Notting Hill Carnival this weekend, we stayed away from it this year after getting lost in the crowds and high rise flats last year! Oh and the small matter of a dodgy stomach for 3 days straight after very dodgy Jerk Chicken! Sad times!

So expect several blog posts this evening as I’m having a proper catch up! Also, keep an eye out for my eBay posts, got 2 1/2 bin bags of brand new/nearly new clothes, shoes and accessories!
