..In more depth and details the reason why we went to Notting Hill in the first place was the french restaurant “Beach Blanket Babylon.” If you personally know me or an old follower of my blog then you’ll know how much I LOVE European -more specifically- french furniture and BBB gives the feeling of a luxurious Château.
Unfortunately the timing of the restaurants here is pretty frustrating, lunch ends at three and dinner starts at six and we were there 3:30 therefore we did not make it to lunch, so we just sat down for drinks instead. Because the place was so beautiful I wanted to try the food and also it’s pretty far from our apartment, we decided we’d shop until dinner to not miss the chance of having delicious food. And I’m so glad we did, I found so many AMAZING stores that had edgy clothes, beautiful furniture and cute pet stores.
And of course when there is Diptyque, there’s a candle purchase. Their scents are so unique and divine. I got the limited edition Rose Duet that was recently launched which combines two layers of Roses and Baies, the scent takes you to a garden of delights..
After the very long walk we took, we were finally back at BBB for a lovely dinner by the fire and the food was deliciously worth it
On Tuesday I was taking a morning walk at Tottenham Court Road in tweeded pumps, it seemed like an interesting street, I penetrated on every block looking for something but even I didn’t know what that thing was, until I saw Paperchase and I immediately knew that Chanel brought me here for a reason. Paperchase is one of my favorite stationary producers so to find a huge store just for its products was like finding paradise..
.. After I bought almost everything, I headed to lunch at one of my favorite Italian restaurants on James street “Sirena” I ordered the usual Sea food risotto with prawns
Selfridges was the nearest spot to shop so we had ourselves a treat of silk and lipstick..
Of course it is not possible to be at Fortnum and Mason without shopping for tea.
