In the Kitchen|Emma Bridgewater Kitchen Textiles

André and I have been getting really good at cooking exquisite meals. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably seen some of our latest “artwork”.

Of course, cooking at home and especially such elaborated meals take a lot more of our time, but it’s all worth it since we’re eating healthy and get to spend more time together.

Just so you know how committed we are to it, André is putting together is own recipe book! And I’ve been getting the right kitchen tools to make our meals simpler and quicker to make.

While doing this I came across Emma Bridgewater Kitchen Textiles and the collections are beautiful so I had to share it here on the blog. I’ve got an apron for myself (I need to get one now for André), a very useful double oven glove and two gorgeous tea towels.

And don’t forget to follow my Instagram for the latest recipes we’ve been working on!

Floral Heaven| Saint Aymes Café

The Saint Aymes Cafe is currently one of the trendiest places in London and it’s all thanks to the work of sisters Michela & Lois Wilson that, inspired by the work of Wes Anderson and their Nana’s floral garden designed this cute paradise in the heart of London. I’ve visited this floral heaven on a very quiet day, I made sure it was a weekday so it’s not too overcrowded and I could taste their delicious treats and take all the photos I wanted.

The café is located in Connaught Village and is only a short walk (approx. 10 mins) from Marble Arch.

The decoration of the place is simply beautiful and if you’re loving the photos, I can tell you that once you’re there it’s even more stunning.

My sister and I ordered pancakes with Nutella and a nice green tea, but I definitely need to come back to taste the unicorn latte.

Searching for Italian Cuisine in London |Vapiano review

You’re spending the day in London and you want to have something quick for lunch, but not so quick that it will lose the quality and taste. You still want the restaurant to be nice and cool, even though you’re not spending too much time in there, after all, you’re in London.

So here’s my suggestion – Vapiano restaurant in Great Portland Street ticked all the boxes.

My sister and I are big fans of Italian Cuisine, so Vapiano has been on our list for a few months now and we finally had the chance to try it!

The service was great and quick, and the prices are extremely affordable compared to the quality of the food.

You get to see the pasta being made right in front of you and the options are endless. I’ve ordered the Gamberetti e spinaci pasta that consists of king prawns, cherry tomatoes, basil pesto, onions, spinach, cream and Grana Padano. My sister went for the bolognese pasta with homemade classic beef sauce with onions and carrots.

We ended up having more than we should, so instead of going straight back to our walk in London, we just stayed a few more minutes in the restaurant taking pictures at their nice decoration.
