The weekend edit #11

February was the month I found myself in the internet-less wilderness after making my fifth London flat move to live with James and having the inevitable challenge of sorting out our broadband. (It’s crazy, and a bit scary, how much I rely on the internet!) March is the month where spring is set to have sprung and I can’t wait to ditch my winter coat and scarves. With temperatures set to hit a balmy 14 °C in London today it’s definitely time to step away from the world at your fingertips and get out to enjoy the city on your doorstep.

I’m thinking of taking a stroll in the sunshine, pitching up at a park with my Kindle and enjoying a coffee in the great outdoors. But if you want to add a little more to your weekend, here’s my latest weekend edit.



Eat at Bad Egg. You might not see me there (am I the only one who doesn’t like eggs?!) but from what I’ve seen on the menu and heard from the internet it looks like a great option for anyone who loves the nation’s favourite breakfast and brunch ingredient. It’s tucked away in the City so you could walk off your excesses by taking in the Gherkin, Cheese Grater, Walkie Talkie and St Paul’s too.

Drink at Cahoots. The latest bar opening that’s spreading like wildfire across social media thanks to this post on Buzzfeed. The underground theme for a speakeasy makes total sense, I’m amazed someone hasn’t thought of it already. You probably won’t be able to get in this weekend but it’s worth sending in your enquiry as soon as you can.

Enjoy the Imperial War Museum. I talked about this when it reopened last year, but there’s no harm in a little reminder right? It’s free to enter and close to the Thames and the Real Food Market so you can enjoy a stroll in the sunshine with some good food after.

Treat yourself to something from Said. I spotted this Italian chocolate shop and cafe on Cider with Rosie and I knew it was somewhere I had to satisfy my sweet tooth. If shopping down Oxford Street is on your to do list this would be a great pit stop.

See the current commission for Trafalgar Square’s fourth plinth – the Gift Horse. Do you think it’s a good follow-up to its former inhabitant the bright blue cockerel (officially known as Hahn/Cock)?

This week’s snapshot of the city from Instagram is a simple reminder of how sights like this never get old, one week or hundreds of years later. London’s history is amazing isn’t it?

Have a great weekend!!!
