Lucky 7

I’ve always wanted to eat at Lucky 7, ever since I heard about it a year or so ago and as I was in Notting Hill on Saturday, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to check it out with my friend Jo. I had the lentil burger, Jo had the California, we shared fries and both had chocolate malt shakes. The place was perfect, better than I had imagined. The staff we really friendly too… I would really recommend a visit!

Oklahoma, Manchester

We stopped for lunch in Oklahoma, which is a fabulous quirky Vegetarian & Vegan cafe serving the yummiest freshly made food. And not only is is a cafe but it is also a great kitsch gift shops. They had cabinets full of unusual and handmade jewellery, greeting cards, tin wind-up toys… too many things to list. Oh how I wish it was nearer, I’d be in there all the time!

G Dad’s Collectables

Today I had the urge to go to G Dad’s Collectables in Old Wolverton… it’s one of my favourite places for a good rummage for vintage and retro goodies. They have everything from figurines, jewellery, cutlery, crockery, clothes, old toys and books. I love it. They also have a cute little 1940s inspired tea room for a cream tea after you’ve had a good look around.

I always come home with something from there and today was no different, I purchased two very cute cake stands.

Woburn Coffee House

What a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning, catching up with a good friend and testing out a cute coffee shop in the village.

I walk past Woburn Coffee House every time I walk into the village and every time the selection cute vintage tea cups and cake stands in the window draw my attention. I’ve wanted to go in there for ages now, so when I arrange to meet up with my lovely friend Amanda for morning coffee, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to check it out.

It was beautiful inside, so many pretty things for us to look at as well as the gorgeous looking cakes. We ordered a cream tea, coffee and a croque monsieur. The food was as beautiful as the place and all freshly made and really tasted. We were made very welcome by the friendly, chatty staff… so glad we chose to go there.

The perfect Saturday morning.
