My London Adventures...


So if you follow any of my social media you will probably know I took a little trip last week to London and Norwich to see one of my best friends Carly. While I was there I met some amazing people, did a little sightseeing and ate some amazing food. 

I do love blogging but it can be a little competitive and the events have a lot of focus on publicity and networking so I decided to organise a little blogging event of my own. No brands, no sponsors, no goodie bags. Just bloggers meeting, eating and having a good time. I decided to have it at B-Soho which is a cocktail bar and pizzeria near Oxford Circus. You can't beat the location and the place has a really good vibe with lots of live music. The cocktails were also delicious; me and Jen had the porn star - can you guess why we picked that one? ;) It was tasty, fruity and very girlie. As for the pizzas they were simple but good and pretty cheap for that part of London. I think mine cost about a tenner. They did have a little bit of a mix up with our reservation, but I worked in the restaurant industry for years and I know how easy it is for mistakes to be made. In the end they looked after us so well and it seemed like everyone had a really good time. You can find their website here, I'd definitely recommend it for a girls night or a birthday but maybe not a romantic meal for two as it was pretty loud in there. 

I also went to Borough Market earlier that day with Shu, Carly and Rhiannon. Another place I would recommend to go if you are in the neighbourhood. All the food was amazing and it's such a fun, casual place to shop or grab lunch with friends. Me and Shu shared chilli fried squid and it was BLOODY GOOD! They also had so many sweet treats, perhaps not the place to go if you are on a diet but definitely foodie heaven. 

Last but certainly not least Carly and I went to Harrods on the Friday before we hopped on the train to Norwich. If you have never been, now is the time. It's beautiful on the outside and inside with all its christmassy decorations and made me feel so festive. As beautiful as it was the real reason I went to Harrods was to go to Ladurée to buy some macaroons. Can you tell this trip revolved around food? They are my favourite place to eat them and every time I do it brings me right back to Paris. Go for the pistachio or salted caramel ones... they are my favourite! 

Now I've well and truly made you all hungry I just wanted to say thanks for Carly and Leon for having me at there house, and thanks Milly, Liz, Brooke, Jen, Rhiannon and Shu coming along to the meal and for letting me nab your pictures. Make sure you follow all these lovely people as they genuinely are so much fun and I love them all to pieces.

I've heard really good things about B-Soho and now that I've read this, I want to go even more! This is such a lovely idea, so much nicer and more intimate than those big sponsored events...meeting people and having a fun time should be what meetings other bloggers is all about :)
