Sunday vibes in the new neighbourhood

Happy Sunday lovelies!

The last few weeks were ultimately consumed with surfing SpareRoom.co.uk and FlatShare.co.uk in an effort to find the perfect new flat. Well after searching endlessly, I have found my new humble abode in the bustling yet relaxing neighborhood of West Hampstead in North London. So why not get familiar with your new high street with a little brunchy?

We made our way to the Alice House, a vintage chic casual dining spot with a table in the sunshine calling our names!

Our table of three opted for delicious mimosas, bloody marys and refreshing grapefruit-infused still water. My meal of choice consisted of wheat pancakes, weaving in smoked salmon, goat’s cheese and arugula. Heaven on a plate!

Aside from delicious breakfast spots just a short walk away, this quaint neighbourhood is the ideal location for my second flat since moving to London. Less than a 10-minute journey on the Jubilee line and I’m in Central London, which brings lots of exploring and touristy bits to cross off the list! Here’s a snapshot of my recent adventures!

Oh, we brunch

Since I moved to DC, I have found myself at brunch almost every single Saturday and Sunday – and I’m not hating it one bit.

Honestly, I didn’t think it was possible to beat New York in the brunch competition – but DC has come on strong.  The District is King when it comes to a variety of venues offering bottomless barrels of mimosas and bloody marys alongside delicious breakfast plates.

I love new dining experiences – and my Instagram definitely reflects that. Take a look at two of my brunch shots below.

I know it’s Monday, but the weekend will be here before we know it!

And yes, brunch can be used as a verb. We brunch.
