Walking in a London Wonderland

It's the weekend before Christmas, some might say 'stampede' Sunday...

Many of us are running around, buying the last couple prezzies...

But I've popped on here to tell you all about my weekend,

of bar crawls, of cheesy pasta, and exploring London....

So have a sit, with a glass of bubbles.... forget about all your worries and troubles...

Because Father Christmas is on his way, so have a very merry Christmas Day.


Good Evening, it is Christmas Eve Eve Eve, and I'm watching Toy Story as I write this. Hope everyone is ok, I've just got back from our family celebrations in London, which was 'A Christmas Tree Bar Crawl', which was the most extra and fancy bar crawl in existence- including stops at The Shard, The Ritz and The Savoy. (Well it is Christmas, right?)


We arrived at the Bloomsbury Hotel about 1ish, it is such a lovely hotel. And started our day of drinking, eating and spotting Christmas trees. Over the whole day, we ventured to 10 different bars, as well as walking through Covent Garden and Carnaby Street to look at the pretty lights, even if it was chucking it down with rain. Who wouldn't want to Walk in a London Wonderland? Our first stop, was the top of the Shard, even though it was a little grey and misty the views were extremely insane... After a Kir Royale, the fam and I walked to Borough Market- EAT THE CHICKEN WRAP, it had chicken skin and stuffing in it... (sorry all food I ate was too good and was eaten before I could take photos.) Borough Market was hella busy though, but the food was worth it. After, we had eaten including dishes of squid, paella and mushroom risotto.... we walked along the Thames and guess who was still hungry! ME (lol), I had this INSANE bowl of pasta, half pesto tortellini and half cheesy gnocchi. Always a yes to pasta coma, I'm still thinking about it now. Our next stop was the Mondrian Hotel. Fun fact- When I did work experience for Fabulous Magazine I did a photoshoot there, which was so much fun. So we had ANOTHER DRINK....

Stop 5 was the Savoy Hotel. Did you know, it is the only road you drive on the right hand side in the UK? At the Savoy, the trees and decorations were really cool as well, as they were made out of lego. We met these 2 lovely ladies Angie and Lynn, and we all had a good ol' chat. Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. After this, we started to wander to Covent Garden, to have a look around and have a lil explore, we wanted to go to one of our favourite hotels for a drink The Covent Garden Hotel, however, there was no room, So we went for a drink at a random restaurant called Monmouth Kitchen. Sidenote- Mum and Dad said that next year, we'd have to plan it more, because throughout the day, this became more of a bar crawl than a Christmas tree tour.


After, we kept walking and went to another family favourite, The Ham Yard Hotel and it was time for a mojito.... after all this walking, we needed to refuel as we were hungry AGAIN. We went for dinner at Las Banderas (it was only 8;30, and we had been drinking all day!) We went for a yum tapas dinner, which included Spanish ham, garlic bread, croquettes, halloumi fries. And here we are, on our last two stops. The most important! Just before our last bar stops, we had a walk down Carnaby Street (the lights are gorge!) The penultimate stop was Claridges, this is my mums favourite bar (The trees were so lovely there! classic, but beaut. Oh it makes me feel so christmassy!) Last but not least, and we have kept the most spectacular til last, The Ritz Hotel. It is so extreme and beaut- I love it. It was such a lovely day, and my three favourite locations we went to were The Shard (the views), Borough Market (the food and ambience), and Carnaby Street (the lights.)

So this morning, after a good nights sleep at the hotel, we had one last surprise- the location for brunch. We went to the Red Rooster in Shoreditch, a restaurant that is part of The Curtain hotel. Now, I don't want to spoil ya but YOU NEED TO GO. Firstly, the food is bloody amazing- I had the breakfast sandwich with fried chicken, egg, cheese sauce in a soft bun. yum. Secondly, the experience aka the Gospel Choir Brunch, gives ya the feel good factor. A perfect end to the weekend, and a perfect start to the Christmas Week.

And here we are, the countdown is fully on. I can't wait to have Christmas, for me there are certain highlights, obviously giving and receiving pressies, Gals Christmas Eve shopping trip, my nannies ham, (THIS YEAR'S GAVIN AND STACEY XMAS SPECIAL- oh my christ) and spending time with the family. I hope you have a fabulous Christmas and I'll be back in time for New Year.


Lots of Love, Mols x
