Farm Girl Brunch Review

We have wanted to visit farm girl for so so so long ever since we spied some lovely pictures on Instagram. What blogger doesn’t want to visit Farm Girl? The menu is so instagram!

A couple of weeks ago we tried to go to the one in Notting Hill but the queue was ridiculously long so we gave up and decided it wasn’t meant to be.

After a photo shoot in Chelsea we thought it was the perfect opportunity to try farm girl in Chelsea instead. We looked on the map and it looked kinda far out and a bit of a walk from any station so figured it would not be as busy as Notting Hill.

Farm Girl in Chelsea is about a 30 min walk from Sloane square and 15 minute walk from Gloucester Road, so be prepared for a walk. However both walks are beautiful, we did both, we walked from Sloane Square to Farm Girl along the kings road, wishing we were rich enough to afford to buy our clothes and Home wear from the gorgeous shops.

We wandered back to Gloucester Road after we had finished. This walk (we followed google maps!) took us down some stunning streets with beautiful houses and the fact that it was a gorgeous winters day also helped.

We arrived at Farm Girl and we were seated instantly. We were sat slap bang in the middle of the restaurant kinda in the isle and given menus. Then a very friendly waiter came and took our drinks order. The drinks menu alone is massive, there’s like and entire A4 page dedicated to the many drinks that Farm Girl offer.

We knew we wanted to be adventurous and try something new, but we also knew that we didn’t want a matcha latte as the last one we tried was gross (not from farm girl might we add!).

We asked our waiter to recommend some drinks and quizzed him about a number of the different options. We told him about our past experience with matcha so he suggested we try the charcoal one as he really liked it, but the past experience really put us off. We then spied flavoured lattes and the waiter gave us an excellent description of the flavour so we decided to go for one rose latte and one lavender latte so we could share.

The way these drinks are made is that the hot water used is infused with either rose or lavender to give the coffee a subtle flavour and we could certainly get the subtle taste and both were surprisingly yummy. Rach preferred the lavender one and Annie preferred the rose one so that worked out well. The lattes cost £3.60 each so quite a standard price for a coffee in London and these did come with rose petals in!

For the main we didn’t know what to order but like we do every time we go for brunch we become nosy and started to look at the dishes coming out the kitchen and being served to other guests to help us make a decision.

In the end, Rach opted for the Avocado Toast which was served with lemon juice, fresh coriander and a sprinkle of pomegranate served on sourdough toast. There was also the option to add a poached egg for an additional £2 but Rach didn’t. The dish cost £8 and was relatively small and not the most filling especially as we have been elsewhere and got much bigger portions. That being said the added pomegranate was a great addition and really make the dish. We probably wouldn’t opt for this if we went back again purely down to the portion size.

Annie went for the Oven Baker Aubergine dish which was baked in a tomato and chickpea sauce with a mint and tahini yogurt dressing served with sourdough bread. There was also the option to add a poached egg for £2 but Annie also didn’t bother. The dish cost £9 which was fairy priced. The dish was incredibly tasty and there were lots of delicious flavours coming through, we would definitely recommend this dish if you visit.

Now we want to end this post on saying how exceptional the service was here at the Chelsea branch of farm girl. All the staff were so passionate about their jobs and were very knowledgeable. The staff were just so friendly and took so much care in ensuring all the guests were happy. We particularly loved how the staff crouched next to the table to be on the same level or sat on a spare chair to take your order or answer any questions.

In addition we didn’t like being sat in the isle as we kept getting knocked and as a spare table came free at the back of the restaurant the staff were more than happy to move us there. They carried everything across for us and kept making sure we were happy- it has to be said as well the lighting was SO much better as the free table was in natural lighting (you have got to think about these things)!

We were quite surprised when we took a trip to the toilet to find there was only one toilet, it was up the top of a staircase and logistically getting in and out of it whilst someone else was waiting was interesting. That being said it was clean and they replenished the hand towels frequently. We loved the staircase leading up to the toilet and the actual toilet itself was decorated charmingly.

Farm girl Chelsea has made a lasting impression on us, and we will certainly recommend this place for food and drinks to everyone – thank you

Lonely London: The Best Solo Attractions On Offer

Although there are two of us we also like to be very independent, we love travelling on our own, shopping on our own and going on long walks on our own, you get the gist we are still very independent. We absolutely love our own company and we are defiantly not the kinda people who are embarrassed to do anything on our own.

Many people who visit London will often visit on their own, and although it’s very very easy to find somewhere to stay in London it may not seem as easy to find things to do on your own. So to help you out with this we have compiled a short list of things to do when visiting London exploring some of the best solo activities in the heart of where we call home, London.

Theatre- Finding the perfect activity when you’re on your own in a new city is always a challenge. In a place like London, though, you need only think of what the place is famous for to be able to start coming up with some ideas. Having a long history in the field of performing arts, theatre can be one of the greatest choices in this situation. Not only will you get the chance to enjoy some of what London is known for, but you will get to do it in a way which doesn’t require someone else to make it fun. Most people will enjoy a play once they get into it.

History- Being an incredibly old place, visiting London to soak up some history is always a pleasure, even when you’re by yourself. Museums are the perfect place to go when you’re looking to burn some time enjoying a slice of the past. London is packed with different options, from the Natural History Museum to the numerous heritage centers found around the city. This sort of activity will be perfect when the weather is bad outside.

Artwork- History might feel a little bit too dry for your tastes during a break, and something lighter might be on the cards. For similar reasons to visiting museums, going to art galleries is a great way to learn about a place and the people who live there. London is home to loads of important galleries, and is a great place to learn about art from across loads of different eras. These are some of the best value attractions London has to offer, giving you hours of entertainment for nearly nothing.

Sightseeing- A lot of people will go to cities like London simply to see what’s they have to offer in regards to sights. Websites like vlondoncity are some of the best to help you with this, giving you the chance to learn loads about the place before you get there. From Big Ben to Windsor Castle, you have plenty to explore on your journey to London.

Fitness- If you are into fitness we would definitely recommend trying out some of the fitness classes that are available in London! There are so many and if you type #londonfitness into Instagram you are bound to find one that you like. There are also lots of free running clubs, running is a great way to explore the city, it’s one of our favourite things to do when visiting a new city.

Coffee & Brunch- London’s brunch scene is booming so what better way to spend your morning. There are so many amazing brunch spots you are bound to stumble across a few on your travels. Have a coffee stop in the afternoon and make sure you go to an independent coffee shop the coffee always tastes SO much better!

Hopefully, this post will inspire you to start looking into ways to make the most out of your next solo London trip. An adventure like this doesn’t have to be boring, and most people will be able to find loads of different activities which they will really enjoy. Of course, you won’t know until you’ve researched it, though.

Ole & Steen

Oh my gosh we have found the most amazing cafe/bakery that we HAD to share it with you! Ole & Steen is a Danish bakery and can be found in, Richmond, Canary Wharf and St James Market. We stumbled across this place on Richmond High Street, the queue was overflowing outside and this is what drew us in (we wanted to know what all the fuss was about).

The cool thing about this place is the ordering system, as soon as you enter there a little stand where you take a ticket with a number, this is then your number to be served. You then order at the counter and can either eat in or take away.


The choice and variety is amazing that we wanted to buy everything. As it was lunch we both had a toastie made with brie, bacon and avocado. This however wasn’t a normal toastie, this was made with a foccacia and tasted incredible.

There are many other things to choose from including open sandwiches, salads and baguettes. There is also so many different types of bread from rye bread to different flavoured foccacia.

To top it off the sweet selection is unreal, with a variety of sweet buns, tarts, pies and croissants. The raspberry slice was incredible, basically shortbread biscuit sandwiched together with raspberry jam & icing and topped with dried raspberries, we are drooling thinking about it now!

You can of course order drinks too including tea, coffee and soft drinks.


Watch this space as they are opening one in Victoria soon.

Brunch Review: Caravan

Caravan is situated just a short walk away from the station in the kings cross Partnership Development. We walked from Baker Street as it was only a 30 minute walk but had to walk through kings cross station to get to Caravan.


We visited Caravan one Sunday on a beautiful sunny day, we arrived at 11AM and headed inside to ask for a table, we opted to sit outside because of the lovely weather and were told it was a 30 minute wait which was fine by us we were not in a rush anyway.

We headed to the bar to order a drink while we waited to be seated. We had only been waiting for 10 minutes when the waitress came over and told us our table was ready- amazing.

The bar area was pretty cool it wasn’t in the middle of the restaurant but it also wasn’t situated at the back so you could walk the entire way around the bar and order from both sides which was quite cool.

The toilets were communal at Caravan, there were separate cubicles for males and females but the rest was communal. We have started to see this more and more in London so maybe it will become the norm soon.

The inside is rather dining room like (this definitely isn’t a bad thing we love it), there are long communal tables which immediately reminded us of being back at school. The high ceilings and pipes that are on display gives Caravan an industrial look which gives it a slightly edgy vibe.


The atmosphere inside was energetic and lively it looked like everyone was having the best time whilst potentially recovering from the night before with great food in a vibrant establishment. If we were not able to get a seat outside then we would have been more than happy to sit inside on the long communal tables.


It was so lovely being able to sit outside in September (especially as it had been so cold the week before), but we soon noticed that it wasn’t so great for taking photos (dam shadows), we actually ended up putting our food on the floor in the shade to get a decent photo of our food oh the things we do for a good Instagram shot.

Annie ordered the Banana, Date, Tamarind, Cocoa Nib, Almond Milk smoothie it was very sweet and almost tasted quite artificial. Rach went for the Cucumber, Apple, Parsley, Spinach which was quite watery and sadly was no where near as good as her homemade green juices.


If we are completely honest we didn’t love the juices we both didn’t enjoy them as much as we had hoped and didn’t end up finishing them either. They cost £4.50 so below average for a juice or smoothie in London but if we were to return to Caravan we would definitely opt for an iced coffee instead.

For food Annie ordered the Chapel and swan smoked salmon, soft scrambled egg on grain toast which was absolutely incredible. They were very generous with the portions and it kept me full for the rest of the day which is always a bonus. This dish cost £9 which is actually very good value for London considering it had smoked salmon on it.

Rach ordered the Avacado, Chilli, Lemon & olive oil on sourdough bread but she also added a side of bacon which was undeniably delicious and they were very generous and gave three thick slices of bacon. The dish cost £7 and the bacon was an additional £4 so again it was only £11.



Over all we were really impressed with Caravan and we loved the relaxed and quirky vibes. We would definitely recommend a visit, there is so much more on the menu that we need to try so we are sure we will be back again soon.

London Bucket List

Sometimes its just nice to write things down, we feel that when we write things down we will actually do it, so we have decided to write our London bucket list. Despite living in London, we sometimes feel that we take it for granted and do not appreciate the amazing city we live in. There are so many things we want to do in London and by writing them down, hopefully we will one day we will be able to tick all things off the bucket list. We apologise its a very random list!

We also have a long long list on the notes section on our phones (we have become addicted/reliant on our notes!) of places we want to brunch, but we won’t share that one with you as it will ruin our Brunch Series posts.

Let us know if you would recommend these places, or what we should add to the list!

1) Climb over the O2 – we have wanted to do this for ages and ages so will definitely be climbing over this iconic building soon

2) Dalloway Terrrace – this place looks like bloggers paradise and the food also looks divine. Check out their Instagram and you’ll want to visit too!

3) Madison – based at St Pauls with views on London we really want to go here for a drink or two

4) Run the London Marathon – now this is probably our most crazy idea on the list, but its something we have always wanted to do. We enter the ballot every year with no luck, but hopefully one day we will get the chance to run the marathon.

5) Sky Garden – this is free to visit with beautiful views on London. Crazy that we haven’t been yet, maybe Christmas will be a magical time to go.

6) Bottomless Brunch – we aren’t really fussy as to where to go for this, but we have never attended a bottomless brunch so this is a MUST DO!

7) Ministry of Fitness Class – as if you can go to Ministry of Sound for a fitness class. How amazing would the atmosphere and workout tunes be!

8) Swim in the Serpentine – so they use the Serpentine in Hyde Park for triathlons but you can also pay to swim in a small section of it yourself. Its only £4.20 for adults, and although does look quite disgusting, it would be something very different to do!

9) Afternoon Tea Bus Tour – b bakery offer the opportunity to sit on a London Bus that takes you on a tour of London whilst eating afternoon tea, how amazing does that sound! The same company also offer a gin lovers tour, we could be tempted!

10) Watch the sunset from Primrose Hill – we love Primrose Hill and its so easy to get to from Baker Street. A lovely walk through Regents Park, past ZSL London Zoo and up the hill and boom, the most stunning view of London.

11) Go for a run through Richmond Park – we love Richmond Park, and once went on a walk through the park to see the deer, we really want to run through the park.

12) Go to Protein Haus for a smoothie – we have followed these on Instagram for a while now and keep meaning to head to Canary Wharf to try one.

We know we shall be adding to this list as the months/year/blog goes on!

Brunch Review Hally’s

hallys 3

We were so excited to try out Hally’s as we had been following their Instagram for a while so when we got the opportunity to go we couldn’t turn it down.

We booked a table for midday on Saturday and arrived on a beautiful sunny day. There were people sat outside with a glass of Prosecco in hand enjoying the beautiful weather. We were taken to our table inside the decor was lovely, simple but stylish.

We decided to go for the bottomless brunch which is available at weekends. It seemed like a great offer, you get a choice of pastry or cookie, any main dish, tea/coffee and bottomless Prosecco or mimosa.

We enjoyed a chocolate croissant and an almond croissant and both opted for an iced coffee. The menu stated there was a supplement for iced drinks, however we were not actually charged the extra, which was a bonus!

There was so much choice for the mains and it was really hard to decide, however in the end Rach opted for the Smashed avocado on sourdough toast with ricotta, feta, mint & lemon with a side of chilli jam which was very yummy, although did have a kick to it!

After spying what someone else had ordered Annie went for the Corn fritters with crispy bacon, avocado, poached egg & creme fraiche. They were incredibly generous with the crispy bacon and served the fritters with 2 poached eggs. Its safe to say Annie was definitely stuffed by the end of it.


We also enjoyed bottomless glasses of Prosecco and mimosas. It was weird because you couldn’t mix and match, once you picked Prosecco you always had to have Prosecco. Therefore we decided to order one of each so we could mix and match. Sometimes you fancy a little orange with your Prosecco and sometimes you don’t so we were very happy – but did find this a teeny strange!

The location of Hally’s is amazing, we had never been to Parson’s Green before and loved it. It was such a quaint little street on the edge of Chelsea with gorgeous looking buildings and shops. Opposite Hally’s is Little H which is the same chain but more of a takeaway with a couple of high stools to sit at.

We had missed going for brunch in London and Hally’s was the perfect place to visit.


Why you should visit Wembley Park

image 6

We decided to visit the designer outlet at Wembley Park one Saturday. As it was a super sunny day we thought we would make the day of it. The London Designer Outlet (LDO) in Wembley Park is so easy to get to via train, we both just hopped on the Metropolitan Line from our homes but you can also easily visit here from Central London and take the Metropolitan Line from Baker Street to Wembley Park Station. It was such a beautiful day when we stepped off the train, the sun was shining and it was warm enough to take our jackets off. We couldn’t wait to make the most of our day at LDO.


LDO is a short walk from the station and you get to walk past the stadium giving you the chance to see the iconic arch up close. When we arrived at LDO we headed straight for a coffee at one of the many coffee shops LDO has to offer. This time though we opted for Neros as we noticed there was outside seating. There is also two Starbucks & Pret a manger. We both had an iced soya latte with a shot of sugar free vanilla syrup. We also decided to share a berry crumble slice and a piece of cappuccino cake both of which were delicious. We made our way outside and found a little table in the sunshine, it was amazing to be sat outside in the sunshine watching the world go by.

Once we had finished at Neros we headed straight to H&M as there were massive signs on the shop windows that said there was an extra 20% off all items. We both bought the same jumper for our Easter photo shoot as it was only £5 you can’t really complain! We also spotted a super cute grey hooded jumper that we both just had to buy again this was only £5.

easter 1

There are so many sports outlets in LDO that we decided to head to the sports shops straight after H&M. We were definitely not disappointed there was so much choice and it was all so cheap, if you love fitness activewear then this would be your idea of heaven. There is a Nike, adidas, New Balance and Aasics to name a few.

The first sports shop we went to was Nike and we were really happy with the collections they had on offer! We picked up a pair of black running shorts which cost us £19 which some might say is expensive for a pair of running shorts but trust us when we say it is worth spending the money as the materials they use are breathable which is great when training in the summer. We also purchased a red t-shirt from the kids section which was actually boys. You wouldn’t even know it wasn’t female and with it only costing £10 we couldn’t say no!

Next up was Adidas which is one of our favourite sports brands! We didn’t know where to start looking when we entered the store, the collections on sale were beautiful and all the colours were incredibly vibrant it made us so excited to add some more vibrant colours to our active wear collection. We both spotted a lime green sports bra that we immediately fell in love with and was an absolute bargain as it only cost us £15. Our favourite purchase of the day was definitely some amazing atzec pattered shorts which only cost us £11! We will be shooting in when we go to Paris on the 29th April so keep an eye out for those photos!

We were having so much fun shopping (it’s not often we spend a full day shopping) that time flew away and before we knew it it was 3oclock and we hadn’t eaten lunch. There are so many restaurants at LDO you will be spoilt for choice when deciding where to go. We opted for Nando’s as you can’t go wrong with chicken. There was a 20 minute wait, but we wanted to sit outside so we were seated straight away, It was so warm we wanted to make the most of the sunny weather. We started with humous and pitta and of course had bottomless drinks. Then for the main we went MEGA! We shared a whole chicken with four regular sides (spicy rice, chips, macho peas and super grains) we then also ordered sweet potato mash and halloumi! It was delicious and sadly we couldn’t squeeze in a pudding.

At 4:30pm we started to make our way back to the station, we were both grinning from ear to ear as we were so chuffed with our purchases. We had such a fun day at Wembley that the following week we decided to return and were fortunate enough to get tickets to Craig David concert at The SSE Arena, Wembley to re live our childhood! We had seen Craig David at the Summertime Ball last year at Wembley Stadium and he was amazing, so we knew we were in for a treat!

On the afternoon of the concert we arrived and headed to Pret a Manger for a fresh smoothie, it was such a hot Sunday we sat outside and watched the world go by, everyone was in high spirits drinking before the concert and enjoying the glorious weather.

We headed to TGI Fridays for some dinner before the concert, where we both enjoyed delicious meals and great atmosphere. After dinner we decided to quickly head to Treats which is a dessert bar. We love dessert so a place dedicated to desserts is amazing! We both got mango lassis, which tasted incredible. We also shared a apple & blackberry crumble with custard and a chocolate brownie sundae….. ooo naughty!

We then headed to The SSE Arena, Wembley to boogy the night away with Craig David,  sorry the photos below are not great quality its hard to get decent photos when its so dark inside!

We are so fortunate to live so close to Wembley Park to make the most of the amenities, however its so easy to get to by train that we would recommend a visit to the shops or restaurants, or see you can get tickets to an event at The SSE Arena Wembley  or Wembley Stadium. We are hoping the Summertime Ball is at the Stadium again this year because we definitely want to go again in the summer!

Don’t forget to watch our  vlog all about our day shopping too!
