The Ivy at Kensington High Street

Kensington is full of wonderful places to eat out. Actually, there are so many it’s often so hard to choose! This is probably the area I am most clueless about when deciding where to dine because I normally travel to Notting Hill or Knightsbridge and Belgravia so don’t spend much time here when I’m hungry! 😉 When Elizabeth and I left The Chocolate Show at Kensington Olympia though, we needed a place to sit down and enjoy a nice lunch.…

Autumn Brunch at Chiltern Firehouse

What better way to spend a sunny Sunday than brunch at your favourite spot with your closest friends? Personally, I can’t think of one! We were lucky with the weather because if you’ve ever lived or visited London you will probably have heard the saying "typical English weather" and this couldn’t be a more right saying for the constantly cloudy/rainy days we get here! Me, Elizabeth, Sasha and Renee had planned a brunch together at Chiltern (sort of last minute…
