baby it's a new age, you're like my new craze

I had a perfect day today - much appreciated after all the drama of this week. I met up with my family and friends for a long lunch, preceded with champagne + strawberries at my uncle's flat - sort of our tradition ;) weather is beautiful right now in london, almost no clouds in the sky and very very warm.

we went to strada restaurant in more london - one of my favourite areas here - they always have the best lounge music and amazing views of tower bridge, tower of london and the city skyline. and because now I'd like you to drool all over your keyboards, I must mention that I've had bruschetta with warm caramelised pepper and onion peperonata, crumbled goats cheese and fresh basil for starter and then scallops on a risotto of leeks, pancetta, lemon zest, chilli and basil. it sounds so beautiful, no? and sorry, but no pictures of the feast - by the time we got to the restaurant I was already a bit tipsy and didn't want to put my nikon at risk ;)

anyway... lots of summery pictures for you here to make up for my absence. a wee bit nsfw, but surely we've all seen worse, eh?

  11. ohh strada... a jealous charlotte here at her laptop. even though it is a little late to be jealous about food. but my insides can't help but rumble around with envy and hunger.

    thank you for your sweet words about my work, i am pleased that part is over though.

    oh how is london, near my kent? i miss it so, but home seems quite near now... 20th of june. oh my tummy replaced the hunger with a wave of butterflies.

    hugs from here. oh so far away.
