LIFESTLYE: Skyr, South Beach, L&G, Echo Falls, Mr Foggs and Next Events

I haven't done a blog post like this for ages but I have been to some fun events recently and I wanted to share them all with you!

Breakfast with Skyr  
I got up super early for breakfast at the Ham Yard Hotel. We were there for the launch of Skyr, a new, naturally fat free, reduced sugar and high protein yoghurt. We started with a group chat with the nutritionist who gave us some great ideas for interesting ways to eat yogurt from smoothies and pancakes for breakfast to incorporating it into dinner with curries or fajitas.

Then we sat down for breakfast. If you know me you will know that a hotel breakfast is one of my favourite things - there was orange juice and sliced exotic fruit. There was smoked salmon and savoury croissants stuffed with spinach and bree which were amazing. And obviously there were cute little pots of yogurt layered with honey or fruit comport and topped with muesli and walnuts. It was creamy and had a lovely flavour. I finished off the whole pot without an issue! 

It was a super hot day in London and I was invited along to an event at Joes Bloggers HQ at Kings Cross. The offices were amazing and we spent the night in their amazing breakout room with the big window doors open looking out over the little square below.
The night was spent playing Monopoly which I think must have been a nod to the investment thing since the night was  hosted by Legal & General, to promote their investment products! Of course there was lots of pizza and prosecco too! I had no idea how to play monopoly when I was younger and I still have no idea now but it was a lot of fun - much down to the crazy table I was sat on - we were definitly the loudest!

#ShoeBoxJukeBox with Next
I think this was my first Friday evening event and to be honest, I was a little skeptical about giving up my Friday night for an event but I am so glad I did because it was one of the best events I have been to in ages! Next let me pick a pair of shoes to wear to the event (outfit post to come soon!) and I came straight from work, getting there early as per usual. I went straight over to the shoe customization table and got stuck in before the crowd arrived. There were pretty shoes everywhere and the food and drinks were flowing through the night! As well as that, there were manicutists, games and random outbursts of dancers dancing every now and then. A great night with my blog friends and a great company - Thanks Next!! Afterwards I was off down the road to meet Andrew and Stefan to continue the night in Shoreditch - I was super excited and switched into my new Georgina trainers to dance the rest of the night away!

Afternoon Tea At Mr Foggs
Andrew and I were invited along to have Afternoon Tea at Mr Foggs. It's a quirky concept bar modelled on the Mayfair house in which Phileas Fogg would have lived after travelling Around the World in 80 Days. We followed a little side road winding off into the distance somewhere behind new bond street and arrived outside a strange little building in the middle of nowhere.

Let me start by saying, the food was not to up to big London hotel standards but a visit to Mr Foggs is all about the experience and that was amazing! We started off with a little champagne cocktail in a tiny tea cup. Since there was a big group of us, it meant that we could have a taste of almost all of the cocktails and watched in amazement as all different sized tea pots came out and were placed on the table in front of us. They all had strange little things sticking out of their lids, dried apple slices, cherries, sweets ect. It was a super fun afternoon!

Echo Falls
I popped along to The OXO tower with Sherin last week for the launch of Echo Falls new fruity wines. We spend the evening sipping of the cocktails which were surprisingly tasty - I wasnt too sure what to expect from a wine cocktail but they were delicious. The white wine was definitely my favourite with tones to white peach and mango. The view of London from the balcony was amazing and the sunset on the way home was just as pretty! I left with a bottle of wine and a cocktail mixer so hopefully I can have a go at making a cocktail or two myself!
