Soupe du Jours in Soho - Finally great soups in London!

My friend Linda and I met for Lunch today. Our destination of choice was Soupe du Jour in Soho. I am a soup lover, but finding a good soup in London is hard. Of course I was pleased to hear from Julia, one of the founders of Soupe du Jour, and couldn't decline her invitation to try the soups myself.

Blogger's Christmas Party in London on the 29th of November

Would you like to attend a Bloggers Christmas Party in Central London on the 29th of November from 12:20 pm until 3:30pm?

The Meetup kicks off with a three course followed by drinks and the opportunity to network with fellow bloggers.

The event is free, but everybody will pay for his own food and drinks. The three course menu costs £22.95. You can have a look at the menu here. However, if you don't want to eat a full three course menu or only want to come for drinks, that is fine too. There will be some goody bags and afterwards we could walk around Covent Garden and do some Christmas shopping.

Please register your interest below by purchasing a ‘ticket’ and I will get in touch. I need to confirm the table booking by the 24th of October and require a non-refundable deposit of £5 until then. I have to pay the deposit by the time of booking as stated in the terms and conditions. This goes towards the cost of the food, everything else is directly payable on the day.

This post will be constantly updated with more information and updates will be shared on Twitter. Just follow the #bloggersxmaspartylondon hashtag.

Take a Bow to Imogen Thomas

On the 29th of September Imogen Thomas launched her new business venture: the Aribella Boutique. The launch was held at Jaks on Walton Street in Chelsea and it was a great location for the launch. The Boutique was named after her daughter Ariana and her niece Isabella.

Personal Tuesday

Last Saturday was my birthday. I knew it wasn't going to be a good birthday and it wasn't. I spent most of my birthday in bed and actually just came down for one hour because George chose a cake for me and he gets very excited about birthday parties. So I sat there, smiled, opened my presents and blew out my birthday candles.

Some of my friends from Brighton planned to go out in the evening and even though I didn't want to go anywhere, I actually agreed to join and got ready. At 7pm I was ready to go out, my hair and make-up all done and guess what? I couldn't go out. I stayed at home and cried away my make-up. I cried some more and went to sleep. That was my birthday and I really hope my next birthday is better, well it can't be worse, can it?

The person who used to be my best friend, did not even send a text on my birthday to congratulate me. It hurts, but I need to learn not to care anymore. She did get in touch though last night and complained that I make myself more important than I am, because when she tried to phone me last week I told her I was busy. Sorry, I have two children to look after and I can't always talk to you for ages on the phone. She doesn't have commitments or responsibilities in her life, so she doesn't understand that other people have. It is always hard to end a toxic friendship, especially this one as she really was my number one. I would have done everything for her.

Life is not good at the moment and it is hard to try and make improvements. I am however back to healthy eating. It's Day 2 today and the first three days are always the hardest. I cut out carbs and sugar and I can feel the withdrawal, but I know it will be over soon and in two weeks time I will feel fantastic again with lots of energy. My goal is to lose 2lbs a week and with ten weeks left in 2014 it would make a total of 20lbs.

If you are on Tumblr, I just joined Tumblr and it would be great if you would add me. It will be a lot more fashion and interior design focused than this blog.

Also, please don't forget about the Great Summer Bake Off Challenge over at Ladbrokes. It would mean a lot to me if you would vote for my Slutty Brownies >>here<<. Have a lovely week and as always I appreciate your comments. They all cheer me up.
