For as long as I can remember I have wanted to visit the witchery for Halloween. Finally I got the chance and I grabbed it with both hands. Not only had I not been to the witchery by the castle but I had never been to Edinburgh. So it was about time I rectified both points
Edinburgh in the autumn is really something a beautiful place. The shades or red, green and orange are spell binding.
The witchery by the castle is a restaurant iv known about for years but never quite managed to get to. Hidden in a collection of historic buildings at the gates to Edinburgh Castle, I have been dying to go but was adamant I had to go at Halloween.
We stepped into the witchery and it was every bit as magical as I had hope. Pumpkins, and candlelight guide the way into a decadently ambient restaurant. Its wonderfully cosy and intimate.
We took our seats, surrounded by ancient oak panelling hung with tapestries.and vines cover the ceiling.
I ordered Shellfish bisque to start, which was as incredible as it looks.
Sundays in Paris were made for long luxurious breakfasts and pottering around the city
And one of the best places for a luxurious breakfast is Le Meurice. After all, what could be more luxurious than breakfast in a ballroom?
Restaurant Le Meurice is Inspired by the Salon de la Paix at the Château de Versailles, and I promise you will feel every bit as fabulous as Marie Antoinette herself here . Recently rejuvenated by Philippe Starck, the rococo ceiling is something else
Crystal chandeliers of dreams hang from the ceilings and and elegant frescoes adorn the walls and ceilings
I really love the ceremony of breakfast. The freshly ground coffee being poured and the "just out of the oven" croissants and pastries arriving.
Along with freshly squeezed juice and fruit plates.
Its wonderful to have no plans other to savour every moment of the day
And take in the twinkling lights of the Chandeliers.
Before heading off into the fresh spring morning to make new memories.
And after you have taken in more of the city, its time for another cafe creme, this time in my all time favourite hotel The Plaza athenee.
I absolutely intend to do a full post about this wonderful hotel in the future but for now I'll show you a fab spot for coffee and a dose of luxury
And did I mention that the Plaza Athenee was were my husband proposed? So it truly is a special place for us.
Dress is ASOS. Handbag is Chanel
La Galerie is just the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy a fabulous cocktail or in my case a cafe creme. Incredibly stylish but also reassuringly relaxing, have a spot of lunch or even afternoon tea
Im going to tell you all about one of my favourite Parisienne Restaurants today
I first heard about le grande velour while reading the book Julie and Julia (after seeing the movie,which I love)
I can’t believe I had been visiting Paris for over 12 years at this point and have only just visited le grand vefour. What a waste. Because this restaurant is a game changer.
They say first impressions are important, and if that’s true le grand before knows how to make them. Being greeted by Guy Martin himself, is certainly the way to going about making an incredible first impression
I'm embarrassed to tell you this, but this was the first time I tried Brie. And what an introduction to this amazing and now one of my favourite cheeses. Triple cream Brie of dreams
Now, to our absolute delight this restaurant is BIG on the sweet things. My husband and I have the biggest sweet tooth, so this was the deal sealer for us.
Its not just the obvious sugar rush that drives our love for sweet things. For us, its the beauty and theatre that comes from deserts that drive our passion. Deserts are the grande finale, the feather in the cap and fireworks at the end of a meal. This menu had a lot of very spectacular fireworks....JUST YES!
To further seal the deal on our love for this place we were served handmade chocolates and sweets...OMG!
Dont even get me started on how beautiful the China is. Actually the most beautiful China Iv ever seen.
