Hello, hello! How was your weekend?
We were non-stop again but even though we were exhausted at the end of each day, we were glad that we hit the town for a variety of happenings.
Here are the highlights...!
Fish & chips lunch at Chelsea Farmer's Market. It's not really a market but the outdoor dining spaces make for a great little escape from the bustling streets.
Natural History Museum. Loved how modern their educational exhibits were.
Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A). What a beautiful building and courtyard. We need an entire weekend to do this place right.
Churchill War Rooms for a special late-night event. They offer a fantastic audio tour of Churchill's war council bunker from World War II. Also, I got my hair done up 1940's style by the Vintage Mafia.
Joe got a haircut! It's a weekend highlight because the cut turned out very well. I've witnessed too many bad ones due to barbers not knowing how to work with his beautiful curly locks. You'll see it in photos soon, I'm sure.
BBQ in Kensington. I was invited by a friend of a friend...it was so nice to meet some new people and eat yummy burgers and homemade guacamole!
Breakfast at Clifton Nurseries. A cute and charming cafe but with a very limited menu. Now that we know what to expect we'll avoid it when craving a big and hearty breakfast!
Mid Century Modern Furniture Show and Lords Cricket Ground in St. John's Wood. Some pieces caught our eye but unfortunately they were priced high for the show and the posh area. Oh well, the hunt for side-tables and a sofa continues...
Chiswick Bazaar, a small but quality local designer show. We stopped by since we were meeting friends for dinner and a concert in the area anyway. Bought a gorgeous alpaca wool blanket from a vendor, So Cosy. It is so cozy!
Show at George IV in Chiswick. A seemingly normal pub from the street, this place is massive and includes a separate performance venue in the back. Our friends Heidi and Jimmy from LA invited us to tag along and I'm so glad that they did. It was like being in a larger Hotel Cafe and we caught the last few songs by a new fave, Michael Kiwanuka. He is so effortlessly soulful.
So there you have it, our weekend in a nutshell. Fun can be exhausting too, right?!? No complaints but we are definitely planning on NOT planning anything for the next one :)
