After-Work Wednesday

Wednesday can be pretty tough
like it’s not the weekend for a WHOLE TWO DAYS
how will you go on?
we’ve got the answer
here’s where the strawberry sisters turn from scrummy juicy fruit into your fairy god-planners
so grab your work buddies
Today’s adventure: soho

So after the 9-5 ends where should you go first?
FOR A COCKTAIL OF COURSE

when your shopping addiction takes over and your legs wonder on over to Oxford Street don’t fear

IMG_3888

you always do
after gasping and restraining yourself from stroking all the pretty bags
 you find yourself in the mighty FOOD HALL

IMG_3890

PRANK! There’s no hat
oh no! did his hat get stolen?
there was never a hat
what a mysterious fella

IMG_3898

Ethos Food

who doesn't love a buffet
oh, you don't?
k then maybe this post isn't for you.
cos the strawb sissies went to a (drumroll) 
BUFFET!
Ethos is just off oxford street 
making it super perf for a cheeky mid-shopping break
cos no-one actually wants to shop until they drop.

Welcome to Ethos...
(well you're not actually there but ya know what we mean)

IMG_3727

IMG_3708

we really tried hard to fit all five letters in for you guys.
we failed.
you'll just have to accept that there's only four in the photo below.

IMG_3725

wait - hold on a second
there's TREES INSIDE?????????????
yep 
darn tooting there is

IMG_3730

'why don't more restaurants have trees in them' we pondered

IMG_3709

we plonked ourselves down
and then popped right on back up
cos in case you've forgotten 
IT'S A BUFFET

IMG_3710

IMG_3711

WE GONNA EAT IT ALL

IMG_3729

IMG_3723
