Weekly Love: Week 206

Autumn is actually here, isn’t it? While during the day as long as it is not raining I’ve been getting away with throwing a cardigan on, on Wednesday night on the way back from seeing Limehouse Golem (a rather good film, by the way) and last night trying to squeeze one more Aperol Spritz out of the summer outside a pub in Westminster I had to snuggle up in my much loved Barbour. I think later today I might put away all my summer clothes (once I’ve built myself up enough to actually tackle my ironing pile, that is!) and fill my wardrobe up with snuggly jumpers and through my favourite wool blanket across the bottom of my bed.

What have you been enjoying this week, and what do you have planned for the weekend? I’m currently scoping around online trying to decide where to get lunch tomorrow (any recommendations, I’m after something that showcases good, British ingredients in an exciting way) and don’t really have many other weekend plans. For more like this, don’t forget to sign up to my monthly newsletter which hits your inboxes on the first Sunday of each month packed full of seasonal eats, mini cookbook reviews, and other updates.
