Yesterday I was #invited to dine at the Cinnamon Kitchen in Battersea, which is an Indian Restaurant. I was really looking forward to this as I am a huge fan of The Batterse Power Station redevelopment project anyway and follow any new cafe/restaurant arrival. I took my better half with me and we started out with a coctail each; his was a Old Fashioned with a smokey whiskey taste and I was recommended a Bloody Awesome. We were asked if we’d like a bottle of wine and we went for a red one. He decided to go for the Festive Party Menu; with the starter being the Bombay Street Food, delish! My starter was a Tandoori Chicken Breast Tikka which was nice. We were recommended the Banana leaf wrapped Sea Bass as an in between and it was divine! His main was a Laal Maas, still from the Festive Party Menu, a fiery lamb curry, which was just so soft and gorgeous tasting. My main was a Clove Smoked Lamb Rump with a fennel and nutmeg sauce and saffron rice, again lovely and very different in taste, much more refined and elegant compared to his but both so good that it totally depends on your mood, which one to go for! Dessert for him from the Festive Party Menu was a Sticky Ginger Toffee Pudding with a Garam Masala Ice Cream, again; delicious! I got recommended a Poached Pear with a Passion Fruit Sorbet. We were treated like royalty by the waiters and overall it was a wonderful experience! And I would definitely recommend you to try the Festive Party Menu offered during the festive period, you cannot go wrong with this selection! Go and try it, you’ll like it! #toplondoneats #toplondonrestaurants #londoneats #explorelondon #thefeedfeed #foodphotooftheday # #foodinstagram #huffposttaste #guardianfeast #bonappetitmag #foodgawker #getinmybelly #forkfeed #foodandwine #feastagram #tastelondon #londondining #londonfoodie #londonrestaurants #timeoutlondon #lefooding #infatuationlondon #eatinglondon #londonbars #londonist #londonbylondoners #timeoutlondon #londonlife #christmasinlondon @[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected] at Cinnamon Battersea

I was at Hagen Espresso Bar yesterday but instead of having a latte, I tried their Scandi style mulled wine called gløgg with an excellent minced pie made by Gails. Those minced pies are to die for! So so good and worth a try if you’re not necessarily a minced pie fan from before ... . . . . #london #mycoffeecup #butfirstcoffee #wheretofindme #bitsofbuildings #mysecretlondon #londonblogger #londonbylondoners #postcardplaces #mylondon #shotoniphone #londonerslondon #mydarlinglondon #mylifeinsquares #londonstyle #searchwandercollect #myanthropologie #housesoflondon #londonr #beautifulplaces #foodiesoflondon #eatingoutlondon #londoncoffeeguide #coffeeandseasons #beautifulspaces #seemycity #citiesbycolour #placesilove #londoncoffee @[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected] at Hagen Espresso Bar

I went for a walk around the Kensington-Chelsea area today. Started out at Bibendum, then past the Ivy Chelsea and Peggy Porschen and then combed the backstreets of Kensington for nice Christmas wreaths.It was a productive day IG wise! And all done mostly in the rain.... . . . #London #Londonist #Londonlife #ig_london #igerslondon #visitlondon #thisislondon #abeautifulmess #prettycitylondon #prettylittlelondon #timeoutlondon #guardiantravelsnaps #huffpostagram #instatravel #travelgram #HBColor #girlslovetravel #abmlifeiscolorful #christmasinlondon #igeurope #thatsdarling #mydarlinglondon #dscolor #flashesofdelight #theprettycities #britstagram #traveldreamseekers #londonblogger@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected] at Kensington, United Kingdom

I am a great fan of cakes, I love baking them so I always look forward to eating some cake but unfortunately Peggy Porchen’s cupcake with a mint frosting was a bit of a disappointment what with the cakey part being somewhat dry.... when paying for it, the lovely guy behind the counter asked me if I liked it, I explained my experience and he kindly gave me a mint macaroon which was a lovely gesture. I do like a macaroon... . . #foodporn #foodphotography #foodpic #foodgram #foodlove #foodiegram #foodoftheday #caffeinmag #specialitycoffee #coffeelovers #coffeeeee #coffeescene #igerscoffee #coffeeculture #caffeinated #coffeeshopinteriors #caffeinecouture #gourmet #eatinglondon #londonist #londonbylondoners #timeoutlondon #londonlife #christmaslondon #mylondon #londonfoodblogger #londonblogger #lifeinlondon #mydarlinglondon #outinlondon @[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected] at Peggy Porschen Chelsea Limited

Today I went to a flower school to learn how to make a centrepiece from flowers and foliage and using chicken wire instead of an oasis to be more environmentally friendly. I love doing things like this as it reminds me of other ways of being creative and I think it adds an extra dimension when training the eye aesthetically. Being on this platform is all about being aesthetically aware and training my eye so that I constantly improve... what do you think? . . . . . #London #Londonist #Londonlife #ig_london #igerslondon #visitlondon #thisislondon #abeautifulmess #prettycitylondon #prettylittlelondon #timeoutlondon #guardiantravelsnaps #huffpostagram #christmasinlondon #travelgram #HBColor #girlslovetravel #abmlifeiscolorful #abmtravelbug #igeurope #thatsdarling #mydarlinglondon #dscolor #flashesofdelight #theprettycities #britstagram #traveldreamseekers #londonblogger@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected] at London, United Kingdom

A quick pasta ragu from Lina Stores at Arcade Food Theatre; another one of these new type of food halls that are becoming so popular in London! It was a Thursday evening and the place was full of people, and what’s not to like; seven open kitchens to choose from, a bakery and several bars. A definite foodie hot spot! .......... #foodmatters #foodinstagram #foodiife #londonfood #londonfoodie #eaterlondon #toplondonfoodrestaurants #londonfoodguide #esgoingout #golondonfood #eatlondon #lifeinlondon #wheninlondon #toplondoneats #londoneats #explorelondon #gourmet #eatinglondon #londonist #londonbylondoners #timeoutlondon #londonlife #londonscoctails #christmaslondon #mylondon #londonfoodblogger #londonblogger #lifeinlondon #mydarlinglondon #outinlondon at Arcade Food Theatre

It is Friday and I have another party to go to tonight.... I am still in a daze from last night’s Tanqueray Townhouse VIP Launch and the fact that Pixie Lott, Viscountess Weymouth, Daisy Lowe and the actor Luke Evans was there. Have a look at my last Live to see them all hanging out at this amazing party I was invited to... . . . . . #London #Londonist #Londonlife #ig_london #igerslondon #visitlondon #thisislondon #abeautifulmess #prettycitylondon #prettylittlelondon #timeoutlondon #guardiantravelsnaps #huffpostagram #instatravel #travelgram #HBColor #unmistakablytanqueray #abmlifeiscolorful #tanqueraytownhouse #igeurope #thatsdarling #mydarlinglondon #dscolor #flashesofdelight #theprettycities #britstagram #traveldreamseekers #londonblogger@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@tanqueraygin at Neill Strain Floral Couture London
