Early Birthday Celebrations: Hakkasan!

Goood morning! Today is a special day. For me, anyway. Becauuuuseeee… it’s my birthday! Today I am officially turning quarter of a century years old oh my gosh that is terrifying 21, yay me! And I will continue to turn 21 again every year for the foreseeable future. Nevermind that I am no longer being ID’d when purchasing alcohol.

My bf’s bday is also in April but as we wouldn’t be able to see each other then, he paid me a visit last week. We decided to celebrate our birthdays in advance so I had two special meals planned, the first of which was the one and only Michelin Starred Hakkasan.

I will say this right now: you should not read this post if you are hungry. You are about to be bombarded with foodporn pics that will have you wanting to lick the screen. If you have not eaten yet, I highly recommend getting something to nibble at right now. If your tummy is already satisfied, feel free to read on. Regardless, you will probably end up drooling. You have been warned. View Full Post

A Weekend In Paris Part II

Last time I’d left you after day 1 (or was it 2?) of beautiful Pa-ree. So today, more pics, including the most delicious salmon I’ve ever, ever had in my life. You guys, it was no joke.

We didn’t have a plan. But we did need food, so after Googling and Yelping (we found Le Reminet via Yelp and that led to one of the best meals of my life thus far, so we were pretty confident with Yelp at this point) we found ourselves in central Paris at a lovely little restaurant called leMacarb.

A Weekend In Paris

I wasn’t originally going to blog this as I still prefer to keep some memories private, ones that I feel are too precious to be spoken about openly. But having gone through my pics, there are still some that I am dying to share with you.

Again in November, J and I decided we would go for a weekend trip to one of Europe’s most romantic cities. Here are some highlights:

Tiger Green Brasserie Afternoon Tea

In case you weren’t already aware, we Brits really like our tea. So much so, that we even named several meals after it. High Tea, Afternoon Tea, Cream Tea, ‘Tea’ as in dinner, or just, well, tea. The beverage, + some biscuits or whatnot. You get the idea.

So when one’s American boyfriend is in town, one takes him to experience a truly British endeavour: Afternoon Tea. Starting with a vast selection of teas, naturally.
