LITTLE GEMS: London Calling!

I love it when a week that's not going so well suddenly takes a turn for the better! I had one of those this week. It wasn't a bad one but it went oh so well this weekend!


Delicious Brekkie before getting on the train! I LOVE avocado on toast! Yummy!


When we got there we went for some tasty lunch to this great little French place called NAC. 


We had a seat at the bar and had some of the tastiest lunch of the weekend!


Super cute little place


I had a sneaky bit of halloumi with a super delicious salad - butternut squash, courgette, iceberg lettuce and toasted macadamia nuts!


Poached eggs with avocado on toast for Miri


And Chicken Sliders with chips for hubby :)


Then, afternoon tea at one of the most amazing places in London! Laduree in Covent Garden! I literally could have sat there all day!


Check out the awesome view from Laduree!


Rose macaroons, salted caramel and chocolate, plus a chocolate eclair for hubs! Seriously the rose macaroons were mind - blowing!!


Lucky ladies making purchases!


Then, that evening we headed over to Knightsbridge to the super cool Yashin Sushi Restaurant!


Here is the Yellow Fin Sashimi and Salted edamames


This is their raw, root vegetable salad


Sexy sushi! Smoked Salmon squares and asparagus tempura maki rolls


Homemade layered tofu dish


Prawn Tempura! Check out this cool presentation!


Plus this cool sticky sweet sauce in a test tube! Awesome!


Then... yes there is more ha ha! We went to Kensington Roof Gardens for a dessert on the terrace outside. Another place I could have sat for hours!


Breakfast the next day was at another super cool place called Cocomaya. Seriously delicious!


Here is their Cherry and Polenta cake!



What I loved about this place is there is no menu! Everything is all made fresh on the day and then you just pick what you want from the selection. We were so lucky with the weather this weekend, it was scorching! Managed to get some more sunshine as we sat outside for breakfast. Seriously this was one of the best London trips I think I've had!


Smoked salmon brioche buns


The MOST delicious seeded toast ever!


Wowsers! Chocolate stuffed brioche doughnut/heart attack on a plate breakfast ha ha!



How amazing is this spread!

















Finally, a walk on Primrose Hill to walk it all off! What a fab time! Thank you hubs and Miri! You guys made it super amazing - couldn't have asked for more! - Plus, thank you Miri for all your wonderful suggestions! All places I've never been before! Big Love!!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Thanks so much for reading!
