I spent this weekend in London trying and failing to get the last of my research done for my MA. Aside from that I looked around the V&A, ate a lot, wandered along the Thames, finally got to try Laduree macaroons (rose flavour oh yes!), waited at lots of tube stations, and had breakfast at Fortnum and Masons, yum yum.

My brother and cousin.

Thai food at Busaba Eathai in Soho. I remember this as being amazing last time, this time it was so so...


Rip off prices at the new M&'s shop in Oxford circus...
Breakfast... Along the Thames...

 Tomato and mozarella salad, macaroni in a pan and Pappardelle with Porcini Mushrooms at Kitchen Italia in Covent Garden... cheap, tasty, and yummy and a tiny bit chain like, even though they only have one other restaurant. Really good fast food though.

Laduree, Laduree, Laduree!

 Holland Park...

We never did find the peacocks...


  1. I love the photos you take of food, Zoe! It always looks so delicious! Would you believe me if I told you I've never actually been to London before?? It's becoming a little crazy that I have not yet visited! Hopefully some time soon!

    Thanks for your supportive comment over on my blog, I really appreciate it. Hope that you are doing ok with your workload as well! In a way it's good to know others are going through the same thing - writing and procrastinating - so we can lean on each other and encourage! :) :)

  2. I love how you're such a foodie! Yum yum yum, I'm drooling in the library! Have you been messing around with the camera - because I notice a discernible difference in quality in these new photos - in a good way!
