Coco Fennell Pop-Up Shop

Coco Fennell is one of our favourite designers, her dresses are fun, quirky and designed to be flattering -
put a Coco dress on a skinny minnie and it will give her curves, put one on curves and it will nip in & flow out, in all the right places.
She's the first person we go to when we need an outfit as we love that when we wear ours, we've never ever bumped into anyone wearing the same thing - and that we always get asked where it's from.
The lovely Pixie Lott just so happens to be Coco's number three fan - after us two of course!
This weekend we visited her pop up shop in Notting Hill, because we couldn't wait to get our mitts on a new addition to our Coco dominated wardrobe...

Haché Burger

Guess who came in to the office last week?

spencerem2

Yes, I almost fainted. Yes, he charmed my socks off. Yes, he smelt so good that I mentally made plans to kidnap him - to use as a very pretty air freshener.
But guess what else we managed to find out?
His favourite restaurant.
Which happens to a burger restaurant, which also happens to mean that we were licking our lips at the very thought of Spenny/burger combo.
He only had to describe his fail safe choice - a gourmet whopper of a burger topped with sweet cure bacon, gooey melted cheese and caramelised onions - before we were skipping over to Chelsea faster than you can say 'where's the PARDY?'

Haché on the Fulham Road is a Santas grotto of fairy lights, twinkling chandeliers and giant mirrors.

But like any good Santa's grotto, it's the elves in the kitchen who create the real magic...

The menu is astonishingly long - so long, that the types of burgers are broken down into sections - scotch beef steak, sirloin steak, lamb, duck, chicken and fish. There's even one that's topped with crunchy peanut butter!

We opted for the Canadian - Spencer's recommendation (!) and the Haché Chicken Club.
With a side of onion rings, obv.

Festive Fashion

Don't get us wrong, we love to Christmas shop for our family & friends, but sometimes you can't help but throw in a few little festive treats for yours truly - you are only helping to lighten Santa's workload after all!
 With the party season in full swing and our diaries on the verge on spontaneous combustion, (there really aren't enough hours in December to spend as much time as we'd like dedicated to scoffing chocolate oranges whilst watching Elf for the 100th time - or for the obligatory visit (or three!) to Winter Wonderland) - we'd thought we'd treat our wardrobes to a couple of pieces that we hope Mrs Claus herself would be proud of.
Now where's the mince pies?

Christmas Gift Guide

December's around the corner and with our default winter accessories of a rosy nose and a red Starbucks, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
This year, we've crossed cufflinks, candles and coal off of the present list and scoured the virtual shelves for something a little bit different...

First things first, an Advent Calendar.
There's nothing quite like waking up to a chocolate each morning - so just how can you improve on a classic?
By swapping the chocolates for nail varnishes, bottles of gin or by creating one with your own photo, that's how!
