My friends and I have made it a goal to explore one new area or a new restaurant in London every week this summer. Last week we decided to try Queen of Hoxton in Shoreditch. This groovy joint is themed as a tribute to Dr. Strange and is a space for music, dancing, food, and rooftop parties.
We decided to pop up to the rooftop to explore and grab a bite to eat. And boy did we eat…
Let’s talk about these chicken skewers. Piri-Piri chicken, grilled halloumi, and chorizo…really what more could you want? We soaked in the London sunshine as we tucked into our kebabs.
Stuffed full of chicken, halloumi, and chorizo, we sat and chatted and enjoyed our first weekend of summer on a London rooftop. We were totally satisfied and ready to head home…and then this happened…
The psychedelic ice cream sandwich.
Sprinkled covered artisan salted caramel ice cream sandwiched between a rainbow bagel. It was every bit of weird as you would think it would be.
The bagel was so-so, but the ice cream was literally amazing. It’s from Hackney Lick and I’m pretty sure you can buy it buy the tub so I will be stocking my freezer immediately.
Though the ice cream sandwiches were a little weird, we still had a groovy afternoon enjoying the rooftop at Queen of Hoxton. Be sure to check out their calendar of events. They have rooftop cinema every Sunday to Wednesday and every Friday night there is a 90’s dance party, so you know where to find me!
Taking you back down to Monaco for a quick outfit post. Though it was warm, it was grey and rainy so I figured the day needed a pop of color so I threw on my favorite colorful Hermès scarf, bold yellow dress, and a stack of gorjana power gemstones. I can’t think of a better combination to brighten things up.
When we were in Nice a few weeks ago Alesa’s friend Kristen flew down to the coast from Germany to hang out and relax by the sea. The four of us decided to take a day trip over to Monaco for a little luxury and a change of scenery.
Unfortunately, when we got there it was raining and overcast, but still warm. But we didn’t let that ruin our excitement (clearly from the photo above). The rain eventually cleared and we were able to explore the Principality.
We bought a day bus pass that worked on all of the lines so that we could have easy access to every nook and cranny that Monaco had to offer. It was seriously worth it, we literally went everywhere.
We walked up and down nearly every street and picked out our future homes (mine is incidentally the palace…) and yachts while snacking on the best chocolate and gelato that Monte Carlo had to offer.
Every balcony is full of flowers and has a perfect view of the Mediterranean. I’m counting down the days until I can move to this cute little place.
Every lookout point offers an amazing view. I’m convinced that there is nothing ugly in Monaco…Everything is beautiful and glamourous. I can only imagine how amazing it is when the sun is shining. I guess I just need to book a trip back ASAP. Maybe for the Grand Prix.
We ended our trip at the Casino Royale where we won millions and all bought the dream Monte Carlo homes we picked out earlier. If only…
