A few weeks ago I was given the opportunity to test the new Fiat 500 car. I don’t get the chance to drive in London very often so having my own stylish car for a day was a real luxury. The Fiat 500 is a fantastic city car: I was able to run errands across three boroughs of London, quickly and effortlessly, and still have time to have brunch with my husband. I am going to share my experience in two blog posts; this is the first one so keep an eye out for the second one next week.
Yesterday I took my parents to Oblix to try the “London Afternoon Tea” menu, a traditional afternoon tea with dishes that pay homage to the city of London. I booked the table weeks in advance and as the day approached I began to worry about the weather. Luckily we were blessed with a gorgeous day and clear panoramic views across the London skyline from the 32nd floor dining room.
One month ago, Dominique Ansel Bakery opened its doors in London with the man himself there to meet the crowd waiting to taste his pastries and cakes. One above all: the cronut. I was one of hundreds of Londoners who stood in line for hours to get a taste of his world-famous creations. A few days later I received an invitation to attend a breakfast gathering with Dominique Ansel on the London Eye. Louis Fernando, a London-based PR who shares beautiful food photos on Instagram @tuckandvine, attended the event on my behalf. He shares his thoughts and photos in this guest post. I hope you’ll like it!
