My 100th Post: A Girly Weekend in London

16 February 2014

 

So what does a single gal do in London for Valentine's Day weekend? What else but get dressed up, have a few cocktails with girlfriends, go to the theatre, brunch and vintage shopping in Chelsea with the girls and eat a cupcake?
V-Day is a perfect excuse to put on some red lipstick (MAC), no?
Friday Night: I joined Kaz and her friend for drinks at Be@One Cocktail Bar for some awesome 90s music and delicious cocktails.
My 1st Vesper… James Bond style.


Dessert -- Strawberry Shortcake (YUM)
Saturday Night: Closing night of Shakespeare's Henry V at the Noel Coward Theatre. Jude Law, Jessie Buckley, Ron Cook and the cast were fantastic, witty and major props to Neil Austin whose lighting design for EVITA was equaled in this production making for an intimate experience in a 872 seat theatre.
Jaw-dropping. Gorgeous chandelier @ the Noel Coward.
A bit disappointing -- the theatre could use a facelift.
Slips in the dress circle @ Noel Coward. 
Restricted view seats; not bad for the price (£12). 
The CROWD outside the stage door after the show; glad I went a few nights ago.
Sunday Afternoon: Brunch with the girls at My Old Dutch followed by shopping at Frock Me Vintage Fair and cupcakes at Hummingbird Bakery in Chelsea. Sunshine, gossip and great company made for a fabulous day out!
My gigantic "My Old Dutch" savoury pancake -- with smoked bacon, chicken, ham, mushrooms, sweetcorn and cheese. Delicious! I only wish I had a bigger stomach.
The entrance to Frock Me. Rooms upon rooms of vintage wears, purses, jewellery. Could be quite dangerous with a limitless budget. I was excited to find an adorable polk-a-dot dress for £10 (yay sales).
Don't you love their takeaway boxes?
My DELICIOUS carrot cupcake.
Back to my readings for uni!
