Places: Coppa Club

Hello lovely readers, I’m sorry about the long absence again, things have been quite hectic recently but I’m raring to go and have a lot of content prepared so hopefully you will enjoy reading it as much as I have been enjoying writing it.

One of the things I always wanted to write about on my blog is things to do and places to visit. I think as an expat in London I possibly appreciate it more what’s on offer than born and bred Londoners who sometimes take it all for granted. That is not to criticise them in any way, it’s just that if you’ve lived somewhere all your life maybe you see it differently.

But I love exploring new places, discovering hidden gems and making the most of what London has to offer.

Last Friday I went to see the Balenciaga exhibition at the V&A museum which I really enjoyed and would definitely recommend and after that we went for lunch at one of Coppa Club branches. I had noticed it recently when I was in the area (one of my favorite parts of London) and the Igloos outside had just been set up and I had made a mental note to visit soon. So Friday was the perfect opportunity and it turned out to be the perfect weather for it too.

First a word of warning though. These igloos are super popular and fully booked until end of January (at the time of my phone call) but they keep a couple for walk ins and you may get lucky (as we did). I booked a table inside anyway just in case and to be honest the interior is very nice and despite the place being very busy it had a nice atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and come on can you think of better views? Tower bridge is just a stone throw away and you’re right by the river so the location really couldn’t have been better.

You get chairs with furry throws that are very cosy and it feels very nice inside. It’s a bit small and for a tall person like me I’m glad I sat where I sat but that’s just a little thing. The best thing is the prices are very reasonable. We all had a sirloin steak which was around £25 (standard for London) and it was probably the most expensive thing on the menu. The food wasn’t exceptional but good enough.

Overall I really enjoyed it and will definitely go back. The igloos are there only for winter and they do a nice terrace in the summer so that’s on my list for next year. They also have other branches and I am actually visiting the one in St. Paul’s churchyard tomorrow so I will let you know how that one was.

As for my outfit, I dressed up a bit on the lower part but kept it casual with my cosy jumper. See all the links above.

Have you been to Coppa club? What did you think?

Exploring British countryside

Two weeks ago, after I came back from visiting my family in Czech republic it happened to be a really lovely weather on Sunday and my friend and I made the most of it by visiting the great British countryside and I loved every minute.

She suggested a trip to a little village called Berkhamsted in Hertfordshire and a close by Ashridge estate with a beautiful manor house and its beautiful gardens and  massive fields full of bluebells. We had such a lovely day and I came back smiling and even the fact that I was going back to work the next day after two weeks couldn’t spoil it.

We first drove through the village which is really cute old style typical English. So photogenic! Then we went to the bluebell fields and walked for couple of hours just enjoying the beautiful nature and clean air and being away from London. It was perfect timing for the bluebells and it was so beautiful. There were spots where it was just purple/blue.

After that we walked over to the Ashridge estate and wanted to have a peak in the house but it’s actually a business school and it’s not open to public except for some days in August when it’s school holidays. We are planning a visit then because from what we’ve seen it seems amazing. Definitely on my to-do list for the summer.

Then we drove back to Berkhamsted and walked some more along the canal, enjoying the weather and pretty scenery and ended up in a lovely pub (The Boat) having a drink and some dinner. I couldn’t have asked for better end to my holiday.

But you can count on me to wear the most inappropriate outfit. When we decide to go I was trying to decide which were my most sensible shoes for walk in the fields and I decided to go for these espadrilles. They are very comfortable, but don’t have a proper rubber sole and as the grass was a bit wet they soaked through a bit. So lesson learnt – don’t wear espadrilles.

I decided it’s time for me to get some cute plimsolls/trainers as I want to do more exploring. I love my pretty girly shoes but I have to be sensible here. I have few trips planned actually. I really want to see more of Britain and will post more about it. I’m even thinking about regular series about this so stay tuned. But for now if you’re looking for something to do this Bank Holiday weekend I would definitely recommend both Berkhamsted and Ashridge Estate.

What are some of your favourite places in Britain?

Places: Laduree

Welcome to another post from my monthly series where I recommend a place I love. I should have probably started the series with Laduree, because it truly is one of my favourite. I’ve been there countless of times, with friends and on my own. I visited all three in London (Covent Garden, Harrods, Burlington Arcade Piccadilly) and one in Paris so far. I will very likely visit another one when I go to Paris in March. And they have it in NYC and recently opened in LA and other locations too and one day I’m hoping to visit them all. There’s just something about them I love.

It feels decadent but affordable, the coffee is good and they also have a great selection of teas. And don’t get me started on the desserts! They are famous for their macarons (salted caramel and pistachio are my favourite) and if you haven’t you definitely must try them, but the other desserts are to die for too. I definitely recommend Ispahan (the pink one below with fresh raspberries) but anything you order, you will love it.

They are also great for Afternoon tea and their Club sandwich is delicious.

Have you been to Laduree? Which one is your favourite? And what dessert do you love? I’d love to hear.

(For details on what I’m wearing check this post).

Have a stylish day.

Place to visit: Peggy Porshen

Welcome to the new year and brand new series. Once a month I will be sharing a place with you that I love and recommend. I am a self confessed coffee addict so I’m starting this series with possibly the cutest cake shop in London that also serves good coffee and teas.
I don’t know what I love more – the pink theme of interior and exterior decorations or the delicious cakes and biscuits. Everything looks and tastes lovely. The staff are nice too and if you come on a warm day you can sit outside and people watch. The area is buzzing and there’s always something going on but it’s not too overcrowded like other areas in London.
It’s in Belgravia only a short walk from Victoria or slightly longer walk from Sloane Square.
Here’s the address and website.
Let me know if you visit and what you thought!
