Weekly Love: Week 46

If you’ve ever wondered what sort of music I listen to while I’m in the kitchen, what constitutes my idea of the ultimate comfort food, or where my favourite places are in London to eat at the moment (you can find all of my ‘Places To Eat In London‘ reviews here), the team at Recipes Plus caught up with me for a bit of a chat about my blog and where I get my kitchen inspiration from. You can read the interview here

1. The blooms are starting to get colourful outside Liberty’s. | 2. I’ve found my favourite Southern style barbecue at Porky’s on Bankside. Full review to follow next week! | 3. Indulging with dippy eggs and anchovy butter soldiers. | 4. Meeting with the Shopstyle team to talk upcoming projects over juices at The Riding House Cafe. | 5. Enjoying the latest issue of Jamie Magazine with a fluffy pile of pancakes with fresh raspberries, and doused in maple syrup on Sunday morning. | 6. Long weekend country walks in the brilliant Kent sunshine.

7. Technicolour displays of Prestat chocolate boxes in Liberty’s. | 8. A simply divine lemon curd panna cotta with raspberry sorbet at the end of a simply amazing meal at Toto’s in Knightsbridge. My review of the the restaurant should be up sometime next week, too! | 9. Digging into the eggs from my brunch post for Sunday lunch. | 10.  Campari and Blood Orange Juice while we perused the menu at Toto’s. (I’ve got the recipe for this classic Italian cocktail here!) | 11. The Lindt press office was my Valentine this year, and I must say they do know how to woo a girl! | 12. Finally, a big thanks to the team at Jamie Magazine for including one of my Instagrams in the latest issue!

Something new for Weekly Love this week. I’m pretty much always looking at pretty new clothes, shoes, home, kitchen and beauty items online, or while I’m killing time at the shops between meetings in the city, or waiting for my train at the station. (I’m surprised more damage has not been done already to my bank balance with Joules, L’Occitane, The White Company, Jo Malone, Whistles and Aspinals all at St. Pancras!) So, at the end of each Weekly Love I’m going to be choosing five items I either already own and have been particularly loving over the past fortnight, or I’ve been lusting after in store. Call it my mini shopping edit, if you will! 

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

First up, my beautiful brand new Liberty Print Barbour. I’ve wanted a Barbour for years, and I’ve been wearing this super stylish number practically every day since I got it, both on long country walks and around London (the big pockets are great for stashing my phone and Oyster card for easy access!) In other coat news, I spied this beautiful bright yellow rain coat from Joules in Fenwick the other week. I know I already own a rain coat, and my new Barbour is waterproof. But, well, it’s bright yellow!

I already own grey and white, star spangled pyjama bottoms (sorry – sold out – but they are super comfortable and have pockets, so I’d still love to recommend them to you in pretty pink and white stripes) that I’ve been wearing this week from The White Company, so it really is just a natural progression that I’d want a matching hoodie from Zoe Karssen. Or, to actually go outside and face the world these star print jeans from Stella McCartney. Also, remind me to just jump the gun and buy this French ‘Very Good, Thank You’ sweatshirt from Whistles before they all sell out in my size

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