Things In November
Boohoo #WeAreFamily party
I was super excited for the first Christmas party of the year earlier in the month. Boohoo had hired out the Skyloft and had rickshaws pick us up for the station. I went straight from work but couldn't stay for long as I had to get up for Bordeaux the next morning but it was super lovely to pop in for an hour to have a bauble of mulled wine and catch up with the girls!
So that was the Friday, then I was off to Bordeaux for the weekend and was back at work for Monday. It was rainy and horrible and I didnt really want to be there but I did have a mysterious email from Greggs saying there were going to be paying me a visit. Little did I know that they were going to turn up at my office with Santa in tow! They brought me a box of hot christmas treats from the store which dissapeared as soon as I got back to my desk (I did save a couple of mince pies for my parents though, they love those things) and I did manage to eat a Festival Flatbread myself even though I had just had lunch - I could not resist the smell! They also came with another gift box with a personalised letter from Santa and the Kate Spade candle that I had been going on about here - What a lovely thing to do!
Brumus At The Haymarket Hotel
After last months trip the the Charlotte Street hotel for breakfast, Andrew and I wanted to try another of the Firmdale hotel restaurants. Brumus is at The Haymarket Hotel and was one of the best restaurants we have been to in a long time - we had the loveliest evening. The resturant itself was so romantic, candles & table clothes (that was my only requirement, I wanted tableclothes) and looking out over Haymarket, the service was incredible and the food was absolutely delicious and such high quality! I started with smoked salmon and then chicken pot at feu and some ice cream (cant skip dessert whether I fancy anything on the menu or not) and the yummiest cocktail recommended by the waitress too!
Saturday Night In
It was cold on Saturday night and Andrews parents were off having dinner in Mayfair so we decided to stay in and cook dinner while we had the house to ourselfs. We went out and spent a load in Tesco and then Andrew cooked me a three course dinner which was lovely! We started with ravioli which is his all time fave and I am starting to actually really love now too! Then we spotted these posh racks of lamb so we got one of those each which he managed to cook perfectly. For dessert he picked up a melt in the middle chocolate pot and I had a chocolate and fresh cream meringue mmm such a tasty night.
The Rosewood for a while after walking past it the other day and it looking so lovely - a huge archway that opens into a grand Edwardian courtyard - a perfect winter break away from the hustle and bustle of the city center life - although I think he has booked something super christmassy so I can't wait! I am so excited to get festive!
Tia Maria X Grazia Party
Juanita and I only popped in for a quick drink after Ping Pong the other night but had loads of fun chatting to some of the girls from Grazia and messing around in the photobooth with a tia maria cocktail of course!
I got my first ever pair of Nike Air Max trainers this month and I literally love them! They came from Foot Locker and are so comfy. I've never been drawn to the design before but the colour of this pair just jumped out and me and I had to have them! Arent they so cute?!
Barry M Nail Care Launch
I was up bright and early to get to the St Martins Lane hotel before work for a little breakfast and the launch of four new nail care products from Barry M. There are four new products including Super Mani and Iron Mani which are both base coat treatmentrs - Super mani is a 7 in 1 which helps to nourish and hydrate nails while Iron mani helps to strengthen and harden.
