Weekly Love: Week 142

I’m moving back to London next week, but it pretty much feels like I’m back already; I’ve been up and down on the train so much! As you can tell from most of the pictures in this edition of Weekly Love, they were mostly taken in London, and mostly in Notting Hill. I’m actually moving to East London, but I can’t help but enjoy spending time in my favourite neighbourhood. I have a list of places to eat in London I want to go and try, then hopefully review for the blog that is over 100 places long (and I’m not joking!) and I’m really excited to finally have the chance to catch up with all the people I have yet to see since loving back from Los Angeles in the city, and to be able to enjoy some of my favourite haunts once more. See you soon, (again), London! 


1. Checking out the new releases from skincare brand REN over end of Summer mocktails at Aubaine. | 2. A simply delicious late lunch at Jamie Oliver’s Union Jacks. | 3. You know Natasha from the wonderful fashion blog Girl In The Lens? I attended the launch of her first ever teen fiction novel on Tuesday night, congratulations sweetheart! You can get a copy of The Elites which came out yesterday on Amazon. | 4. A light supper in Victoria from Wagamamas. | 5. My train snack the other day courtesy of the guys at Cadbury’s. My pronouncement? the new Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Pebbles are very, very more-ish! | 6. Pretty pastel houses in Notting Hill.


7. My first trip to one of my all time favourite dessert spots, Ottolenghi’s in Notting Hill in over a year. It had been way, way too long. | 8. Cinnamon and Walnut buns for family Sunday afternoon tea fresh out of the oven, adapted from The Joy The Baker Cookbook. | 9. Skewers ready for barbecuing; chicken livers wrapped in smokey bacon on with onions and sage. | 10. Spying pretty pastel meringues in Jamie Oliver’s Recipease by Notting Hill Gate tube station. | 11. The awesome decor in Union Jacks. | 12. Colouring my hair back to its usual red(ish) state after all the bleaching done by the Southern Californian sun.

What have you been enjoying this week, and what do you have planned for the weekend?
