Cosy Christmas Brunch in Notting Hill

I can’t think of a more cosy Christmas brunch than spent sitting beside a fire, surrounded by Christmas trees, with festive music playing in the background, and penguins. While I can’t promise you guys penguins :(( I found the perfect place in Notting Hill which will tick all the other boxes! Beach Blanket Babylon. This unusually named place looks so unassuming from the outside, with its pretty but simple white exterior, that you might have walked past it many times before,…

Hush Mayfair’s winter wonderland

I walked into (or more like, onto) Hush and had to…

Halloween Lattes at Peggy Porschen

Halloween is right around the corner, but with all the lack of pumpkins and autumn leaves around the city, it’s hardly obvious! I personally love getting into the Halloween spirit, from baking spooky treats to going to seasonal stores and locations. While trick or treating isn’t (any more) for most of us really how we want to spend our October 31st, there are luckily so many more alternatives! One of these is Halloween-themed coffee at Peggy Porschen. It’s easily one…
