The Serpentine

Hyde Park is magical this time of year, though I love it during summertime, I think fall in the park is so beautiful, especially when the weather is as great as it was this weekend. Late wine brunch at The Serpentine watching the sunset could fool anyone believing they are somewhere in the countryside and not in the heart of a metropole, except perhaps for the building constructions in the horizon.

This is exactly how I ended up spending my Saturday late noon and I wore a turtle neck from H&M, pants and sunnies by Phillip Lim, blazer Zara, shoes and bag Celine, watch Tagheuer and bracelet Margiela.

My weekend

It’s Monday noon and I’m still a bit tired after this weekend which ended quite late throughout, dinners with friends and a little clubbing. But there’s not much time for being lazy now as I’ve got some serious packing to do for my NY trip and a whole list of boxes that need to be ticked.

Anyway, here’s me on Saturday when I chilled at a typical London pub and headed for an early dinner at Massimo at late noon, the latest a highly recommended restaurant at Trafalgar Square, their oysters are just jammy!

I wore jumper by Acne, leather skirt Alexander Wang, watch Tagheuer, sandals and bag Celine,

Yesterday eve

Yesterday eve I went out for a lovely dinner at Semplice, a cute Italian in Mayfair with excellent dishes (including black truffle!) and reasonable price level. Then followed by clubbing and just for the occasion I dug out this skirt from Lanvin for H&M, totally forgotten about it.

This eve, relaxing home, wonderful, happy weekend to you too!

I wore top and shoes Isabel Marant, skirt Lanvin for H&M, jacket Vibe Johansson, watch Tagheuer, bracelet Bjørg and clutch Helmut Lang.

Trafalgar

I mentioned this roof garden at Trafalgar Hotel yesterday but as this day turned out to be just as warm and sunny and since I don’t have my own balcony or garden in my own house, this is the only sunny roof terrace that I know of in my area. Today we enjoyed excellent food there, seafood platter of oyster, lobster and langoustine, chicken and beef, fresh fruit and a good bottle of Chabli while enjoying the rays, what a wonderful day and I hope the sun is shining on you as well!

Around in London

I usually don’t have too many plans during weekends, I like being free without any commitments and rather enjoy spontaneous things coming up, like yesterday, I ended up spending a whole lot of time in the Margiela store in Mayfair then followed by a late brunch at the new open Hakkasan in the same area, a walk around and movies at home the rest of the evening and today I woke up feeling rested for once, lovely!

I’ll post some outfit images in a minute and then a whole new day to enjoy!

Yesterday

Yesterday eve after finishing of work from home I ran out to a french bistro around the corner, Le Garrick, the 3rd time this week, I’ve got the hots for their small dishes and the goat cheese salad must be the best I’ve ever tasted, the magic is due to the sauce.

Oki, I’m on the run out for brunch, have a lovely Friday noon you too!

Casual outfit, jeans Cheap Monday, top Acne, coat Oasis, heels Louboutin, bag Mulberry and a tired face.

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon

Black Truffle Salad with Fuji Apple

Scallop with Black Truffle

Bellota Ham, Fried Langoustine, Steak

It’s been a while since I shared a great address with you guys, now we’re speaking gastronomy. Yesterday I had a fantastic dinner at one of my absolute favorite restaurants in London, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, a 2 star Michelin. I don’t need to describe it in words, judge by the images. What you don’t see much of is the atmosphere inside, it’s dark but I won’t say more, perhaps of curiosity you will try it for yourself. This is French gastronomy at a high level, highly recommended.

Note: Booking is needed!

The Serpentine

Yesterday I headed over to Knightsbridge area and met up with friends for a late brunch at The Serpentine which is a great hangout on warm summer days and apparently in January too. I love Hyde Park and I’m always astonished that it’s all so clean despite it’s in the heart of London. Unfortunately for the birds I forgot to bring along the bread I’d saved them, I promise to bring it along another time little birdies.

When I was in Oslo last week I finally laid my hands on that jumpsuit I’ve posted about from Monki, it’s perfect to wear underneath a delicate maxi dress like today, dress from Topshop, hoodie H&M, jacket and boots Acne, bag Alexander Wang

Hawksmoor

Vegetarians look away!

Last Friday I tried a new good address, Hawksmoor, a british steakhouse in Sevel Dials in Covent Garden and it was excellent. This is the place to go for people who fancy a high quality steak and it managed to get on my top 3 list for steak places in London. What can I say, the image speaks for itself and this lovely cut was only for 2 people.

The entrance of this place is so discrete, I walked down the stairs and started off with a drink in the bar, when we were told the table was ready we were guided into a big hall, completely fully seated, felt like I was given access to the underground secret society for meat lovers. The atmosphere and wine list excellent, my only complain though was that the service was a bit slow, took us 3 hours from start to finish, but hey, perhaps they just wanted their guest to enjoy the meal in piece, the meat codex.

As for all great addresses in London a booking is necessary, even weeks beforehand, in this place I would recommend you to even prebook your preferred cut of meat as well, otherwise you’re risking they’ve run out of it.

I managed two outfits in one day yesterday as I headed for a lovely dinner in the evening at the spanish restaurant Dehesa next to Carnaby Street and got full on Iberica ham and courgette flowers stuffed with cheese, oh so good!

Cafe Boheme

Oysters

Scallops, Goat Cheese Salad, Sweet Almond Trout and Tarte Tartin

Cafe Boheme, a french bistro in the middle of Soho, not spectacular, reasonable prices, live music, just a simple place to pop into for breakfast, lunch or dinner, simplicity is just what I love with this place and the food is worth every penny. Like today, strolling around Covent Garden feeling tired and with a huge appetite cause of a late night earlier and then, like so many times before, we dropped by, the dishes above were excellent and accompanied by latino musicians and a bohemian atmosphere, worthy it’s name and worth a try if you’re next by.

All leather

Yesterday eve I discovered a turkish restaurant, Sofra in Covent Garden where they played Mozart in the background. Wonderful turkish dishes were on the menu but also more international ones like black cod and goat cheese salad, I’ve got a feeling this place’s gonna be visited often. As this place is surrounded by theaters they serve pre-theater menus for a very reasonable price, good to keep in mind if you’re heading to the West End for a theater eve out.

Rules are made to be broken so I ended up all in leather, skirt Zara, jacket Topshop, turtle neck Cos, boots Acne and bag Alexander Wang

Grilled Hallomi

Goat cheese salad

Wednesday eve

I had a great late dinner out at Yauatcha yesterday, not only to they have the best dim sum in London but also their desserts are heavenly and light accompanied with asian flavoured ice cream and sorbets like ginger, green tea and lemongrass, mmmm….

I wore my new silver knit from Whistles, skirt Acne, jacket Topshop, shoes Cos, bag Mulberry

Food again

Grilled scallops & Lamb

Another good address in London, I feel blessed living here, there’s always a new great restaurant around your corner, like this place we tried yesterday, practically just across the street in St.Martin Lane Hotel. I often go to their bar but only tried the restaurant Asia De Cuba once before, this time it was so much better and on top of the tasty food I love the interior, bookshelves, portraits everywhere and light cables from the roof, it’s a busy place so booking needed.

Ok, I’m on my way out for a birthday party and I’m running late, enjoy the pics and have a lovely eve, Ciao!

Beef Salad

A heavenly Carrot cake
