Harrods, Cocktails & Wagamama

Occasionally my blog becomes quite personal, detailing great events in my life or just big changes, but generally I tend to stay away from giving too much information away about just what is happening in my life.

However, I really enjoy reading other peoples posts about what they have been up to and so I think I might start sharing a little bit more about my life and focusing less on just reviews.

It’s Monday morning again, they always seem to role around too quickly, and after such a great weekend I am on a definite come down!

This weekend was spent mostly catching up with friends and enjoying the sunshine – in between rain and thunderstorms!

On Saturday I paid a visit to Harrods in London for a Champagne afternoon tea. After spending the day walking between Knightsbridge and Oxford Street a nice cold glass of Champagne was exactly what I needed!

The selection for afternoon tea was good, there was a range of sandwiches including cucumber, salmon and cream cheese (oddly, served in pink bread), coronation chicken, egg and salt beef with Stilton cheese. This was then followed by two scones with clotted cream and jam, then topped off with a great selection of cakes and macaroons.

I was really looking forward to sampling the macaroons but unfortunately I didn’t enjoy them. They seemed to be filled with strawberry jam and it was all a bit too much, especially after the preceding sandwiches and scones.

Overall though we have a nice time and the Terrace restaurant at Harrods is a really lovely, grand place to enjoy some food and drink.

We also popped to Liberty of London on the hunt for a gift. This is my favourite store in the whole of London, not least because of the beauty of the building it is housed in. You feel a little bit like you have stepped back in time!

On Sunday, I went to Lakeside in the afternoon after plans for a picnic in the park were curtailed by bad weather. We had not long arrived before we decided to stop for a drink at 360 Champagne bar. Drawn in by the thought of a cold glass of Champagne or a cocktail, we soon settled on a drink each: a Mojito for him and a Candy Floss Martini for me.

Served separately, the martini was delicious and sweet enough without the need to add the candy floss addition. However I really liked having the small shot glass of candy floss with the drink as it was really tasty and reminded me of childhood days spent eating too much of it by the sea!

We then moved on to Wagamama, my first time at the restaurant! I was excited because after my trip to Japan a few months ago I have totally fallen in love with their food and have missed it ever since.

We started with Chilli Squid and Chicken Gyoza which were absolutely delicious! I then had the Chicken Katsu Curry – a real favourite of mine – and was not disappointed. In fact there was far too much and I sadly couldn’t finish it, but I cannot wait to go back again!

I hope you had a good weekend too, what did you get up to?
