Maggie Jones

This is a late Valentines day post, Spurs are partly to blame for scheduling a match on the day and stealing Joe. Anyway, the delay was made up for with the cutest dinner ever on Saturday night. We went to a restaurant in Kensington, Maggie Jones. I read mixed reviews on the place which included, "It was like my nan's kitchen", so I wasn't too sure what to expect.

Nan's kitchen was not far off. Pots, pans, shelves that held bits and bobs covered the walls. We were taken downstairs, which was a small intimate room and seated in a rustic candlelit booth. The friendliest waiters greeted us with fresh bread and nibbles. I haven't included photos of the restaurant just because I'm hoping you'll go and I don't want to ruin it for you!


We share most of our meals, when we don't I always think his is yummier than mine. So, for mains we went for the Chicken and Artichoke Pie. Creamy chicken with shredded artichoke mopped up with the pastry was absolutely sensational.


As well as a rump steak, both recommendations from the waiter. I'm often reluctant to get steak when I'm not in steakhouse and this completely proved me wrong. Succulent, flavoursome and I had the whole, 'I hope this never ends'.



The dessert was a tough decision, apple crumble and bread and butter pudding were the chosen ones. With burnt cream and chocolate pot being the runners up. Definitely the best traditional British food I've had in London.


Overall, a romantic and delicious dinner with my perfect valentine. Very loved up and full up.

You can't find them online.

Crazy Bear

I popped home this weekend, there were a few reasons to celebrate, promotions, results and of course Chinese New Year.

I hadn't been home for a few weeks and as always my parents acted like it had been years with hundreds of questions, updates and hugs. On Friday we popped to Beaconsfield for dinner at the Crazy Bear.

Now, if you haven't been to the Crazy Bear it's a huge recommendation, they have a few restaurants in and around London as well the most luxurious rooms if your up for a romantic sleepover. We ate in their Thai restaurant and kept up the family tradition of ordering the majority of the menu.


We had EVERYTHING. 



The appetisers were unbelievable. For my main I ordered the lobster, whilst it looked great, it was sadly very disappointing. It was wok fried and completely covered in oil and bread crumbs. I was too full and happy to care and settled with their trio of sorbets for dessert.


Overall, I'd still say the food was unbelievable and the decor and service are both top notch.


After dinner we all sat there undoing our buttons and pulling funny faces and I couldn't have been more happy to be home.



Ryan and I went with crazy frog faces, but mum came out with a new one with her attempted fat hamster face, stole the show.



Normal is boring.

Chunky

A lot of girls have obsessions with shoes, handbags, dresses. Mine is definitely jewellery, it's a huge weakness. I'm normally the glitzy and dainty type, but really I love it all. I'm going through a little bit of a chunky phase, so thought I'd share it with you.






1. Miss Selfridge - £16.50
2. ASOS - Metallic Collar Necklace £25
3. Topshop - Coin Collar Necklace £25
4. Chloe Jade Green - £40 @ Selfridges
5. Swaroski - £579

I've always loved costume earrings but chunky necklaces are great for statement pieces so there are a few of my favourites.
