The Beauty Workshop

This week we were invited to the launch party of the Selfridges Beauty Workshop.
A brand new luxury beauty destination where you'll walk in for a nail varnish and walk out utterly preened, pampered and transformed. 
A playground of tanning, body care, skin care, beauty tools, hair and nails.
Sound like heaven yet? 

Pinkberry were on hand with unlimited frozen yoghurt to prevent guests from licking the good enough to eat Nails Inc display. 

Millie Mackintosh, our favourite Chelsea girl, helped us pick out the best eyelashes to suit our style and beauty regime, from her new range with Nouveau.
We're happy to be Mayfair and Belgravia girls!
Thanks Millie!

The Paint Shop mani/pedi station is our new favourite place in the WORLD.

We chose to have the brilliantly girly, glittery pink 'Pinkie Pink', the Breast Cancer Campaign nail varnish by Nails Inc...

The lovely Joanna McGarry, Beauty Director of Stylist magazine, was also in attendance to pass on her unrivalled tips and knowledge on all things beauty - she had us drooling over grey eyeliner!

We've even got our own dancing flip book!
Booooogiee woooogie!!

Selfridges can we move in pretttty please??

Slider Bar

There's something magical about miniature food.
Whether it's cocktail sausages that send us straight back to our childhood birthday parties or fancy canap├ęs that disappear as soon as they emerge from the kitchen, we always find that dinky versions are much tastier than their full-sized counterparts.
After the impossibly amazing, wrong in all the right ways 'Big Mercs' at London Fashion Week, we didn't think we'd be proclaiming our love for any other burger any time soon. 
After all, surely anything that didn't leave us with sugary lips would pale in comparison?
Oh how wrong we could be.
We hadn't been to Slider Bar.
 Also known as "Honey, I shrunk Lucky Chip"!


An inconspicuous entrance leads to the low-lit basement bar of The Player members club. Reminiscent of an American High School cafeteria, with eclectic living room elements such as old black and white flickering t.v sets, squishy leather seats and the resident moose's head - whose main job is to oversee the cheese-fuelled antics beneath him.

The scrummy sliders can be mixed and matched to your hearts content, although we would happily eat the double cheese for every single meal.
As well as cocktails, the menu has a range of deliciously decadent 'Grown up floats'.
Vanilla Ice Cream, Coca-Cola and Bacardi 8 Year Old Rum.
Thick, creamy and utterly divine.
Need we say any more?

Desserts here deserve their own spotlight.
Not wanting to be outshone by its meaty alter ego, the Ice Cream burger is just short of perfection. As we opened the lid of the intricate takeaway box we were expecting to see scoops of Ice Cream that vaguely resembled a slider...

We were wrong, again.
We thought there'd been a mistake, it looked like an actual burger.
But tasted like Ice Cream!

We also couldn't resist the chance to play with our food and jumped to try the 'Build Your Own Sundae'. Mr Whippy ice-cream, candyfloss & bubblegum sauce and little pots of magic.
Pizza Hut Ice Cream factory eat your heart out.

We're already planning our next trip to try out the appetizer menu of classy KFC and posh fish and chips...
