The first week in December was a good (and full on!) one.
Monday night I had Shake Shack for dinner and tried their new truffle burger. Which was OK, but I prefer the regular Shack burger!
Tuesday I had another night in with more comfort food; frankfurters and mash!
And scented candles, new Vogue and some TV.
Wednesday night and more comfort food. This time pizza (store-bought) with bearnaise sauce and a really good book!
Thursday I had frankfurters again and an ice cream for pudding. So nice with several nights in in a row!
But Friday night I ventured out and had a little date night with my city!
I had a lovely dinner at Barrafina Adelaide Street with my favourite croquetas…
… the best ever tortilla (honestly it’s fantastic!)…
…and some scallops!
Saturday I did some Christmas shopping and took pictures of all the Christmas lights I came across.
There were so many pretty ones!
When I got hungry I popped into The Wolseley for a quick bite to eat and had a lovely supper in the café.
Such a lovely Croque Monsiuer!
After some sustenance I did a bit more shopping, checking out Burlington Arcade…
Back home I had a little treat from Ladurée for pudding. Love their salted caramel macarons.
Sunday I wrote Christmas cards before once again heading out Christmas shopping.
And was rewarded with this sunset view!
I then braved the queue for the Glossier pop-up!
It was so much fun trying all the products and to see the amazing space they’ve created. It had Alice in Wonderland vibes and was all pink and floral. Lovely!
Then I went to see my friend Gaby and we had a lovely dinner of steak, mash and a madeira mushroom cream sauce and vegetables.
Followed by a cheeky glass of Baileys on the rocks! Such a lovely weekend!
