Scenes From The Weekend

This past weekend, our cousin Riley came to stay with us and we had a wonderful time showing her around the city.  On Friday night we went out to The Butcher’s Hook in Chelsea, a restaurant which reminded me of San Francisco with its chalkboard menus on the walls, unfinished wood tables and clean white napkins. We had a tasty fish & chips starter, baked salmon with dill potatoes and chicken roast – yum!

On Saturday, we all went to Portobello Market in Notting Hill to stroll along the vintage shops, cafes and flea markets. It was crowded with tourists, but we ducked into Gail’s Bakery (same name as my favourite bakery in Santa Cruz!) for an amazing breakfast of cinnamon buns, vegetable quiches and strong cappuccinos. We passed the iconic book store from the film Notting Hill and checked out the gorgeous homes dotted along Kensington Palace Road before heading back to Fulham for an ambitious pub crawl with friends. After a few stops, we headed to the Chelsea vs. Bolton match at Stamford Bridge and watched our team win 3-0. Saturday night involved drinks at The Jam Tree followed by a dancing at a strange Brazilian restaurant in Clapham - brilliant! We were so sad to see Riley go on Sunday, but we'll see her soon enough during our April holiday in Barcelona! Something about seeing family always makes you appreciate what’s important in life. :)

The weekend didn't stop there for me as I (amazingly) had the chance to go to London Fashion Weekend on Sunday! More to come on that later this week...
