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!
Then it was time for Le Mans ’66 at the IMAX Leicester Square. Absolutely loved the film and seeing it on that screen added another layer of amazement. Wow!
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!
