Whilst in my beloved home town of Manchester, I had to checked out the new kid on the block, 20 stories... for a whole number of reasons
As luck would have it, we managed to be in London for Valentines day this year which was a real treat... because London knows how to show a girl some love.
We are in the UK for a few days, before a little weekend way in Europe, so I get visit my old hometown of Manchester before moving onto London for the rest of the week
For some reason, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day... especially on a day where I can take my time over it and not have to rush. And if you have time to sit and enjoy your breakfast, you may as well find the cutest place possible right?
Having seen pictures of Elan's to die for flower wall and baby pink suede sofas I headed down to Brampton road check it out for myself.
There is no denying that Elan is Instagram heaven! It is SO pretty it hurts....just up my street! Totally lives up to its insta cuteness... with all of the things I love.
Floral wall and canape, tick, Edible flowers on your food, tick, pink sofas, tick, swan coffee art, tick!
The hardest part is resisting the temptation to eat all of those croissants
Order a coffee and something from the menu and think about ways to re create that flower wall at home (well, that's what I did)
Unfortunately, I had no insta hubbs so totally missed out on getting a shot of me in this floral setting from heaven (rolls eyes). He can redeem himself by taking me back...
I ordered the pan fried banana bread with berries and coconut yoghurt. It tasted as amazing as it looked!!! And give me swan coffee art and I am sold.
It was worth every single calorie, although probably not as naughty as it looks with all that lovely fruit and chia seeds
I had a lovely morning at Elan cafe, both the service and the food were excellent. If you in the area I definitely recommend it for a fabulous coffee, delicious breakfast and a dose of inspiration!
I'm taking you with me for the most exciting, fun, luxurious, stylish and incredible (and i'm not over exaggerating) Lunch! Fancy it?
I had no idea we where we were having lunch, the only information the hubs gave me was that he had booked somewhere incredible for us...
When we arrived at the Mandarin Oriental restaurant Moments, I knew I wouldn't be disappointed.
Moments has two Michelin stars already for its cuisine inspired by Catalan culinary culture and is Managed by chef Carme Ruscalleda, one of the most famous chefs in Spain.
The menu, is inspired by the Seventh art. 12 courses, in the theme of famous movies... how exciting. An experience that was not only beautiful and delicious but exciting and entertaining at the same time... time to take our seat at the cinema.
To Start... Breakfast at Tiffany's. Served in the cutest way! Sobrasada Brioche, Mahon cheese and apple ham broth.
Followed by (LEFT TO RIGHT)

Pulp fiction 1994. The famous $5 shake. Yes, it was every bit as amazing as it looked.
Charlie and the chocolate factory. Chocolate, green tea matcha and olive oil. An amazing grande finale. If you haven't tried chocolate and olive oil, your not living!

Is there anything better than pottering through a city you love and getting lost in maze of backstreets?
Dress Yumi , Bag Chanel
In my experience its the best way to find the cutest places
We set off after a lazy Saturday morning after breakfast in bed with no plans for the afternoon other than to find good cafe con leche and beautiful buildings
The Gothic quarter was the place we were looking for!
We managed to find the best cafe con leche and the stunning buildings... win!
And took a break from the site seeing in the quirkiest cafe
Copenhagen in the winter is such a pretty and cosy place. In fact Copenhagen would be beautiful whatever the weather, but there is something about the magic of winter
OK, I know I'm last in line to get to Peggy Porschen's beautiful pastel Parlour, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't blog about it right? In my book, you can never have enough cake and floral garland!
Marrakech has some of the most decadent and stylish restaurants iv seen anywhere. And Jad Mahal is no exception. Just a stone throw from our hotel, La Mamounia it was just to close not to pay a visit
