Lifestyle: The Perfect Weekend

A bit of a different post today, introducing my BFF and a couple of amazing places to eat in London. I want to post more lifestyle type posts this year as I love having a nosey at these types of post myself. So.. here we go. Last weekend my BFF(FFF) came to stay. She works on cruise ships, so I hadn't seen her for the past 6 months so the second she got home we pencilled in a date for a weekend full of our fave things-food, drink & lots of fun.


Now meet Jen/Jennie/Jenbo/Maloner- we met in halls at uni (we had rooms next door to each other) and quickly became very close. We lived together throughout the 3 years and spent most of our time laughing, eating, drinking and having the best time. We graduated last year, and i've found that like most people, I only still speak regularly to a handful of all of the people I met at uni but this girl is definitely a keeper. Lovey dovey stuff over as I could go on all day, we planned this weekend around a visit to Pizza East; a restaurant that's been on my list (more of that in another post)for what seems like forever followed by some cocktails and of course, some dancing.

We started off the weekend on Friday with a trip to Nandos (our uni fave) and a catch up. On Saturday we got dressed up and headed to Shoreditch to test out Pizza East. We were running late so we sat down, ordered some prosecco and our food straight away. We ordered the garlic bread which was deeeeelicious but possibly the most garlicky thing i've ever tasted. The pizza's were also amazing, I had the salami and Jen had the mozzarella, and it was definitely worth the wait. We headed on to Hoxton 7 for some cocktails, then ended the night dancing in a bar/club around the corner.



On Sunday, we were feeling a little fragile so knew we needed some food before Jen headed back home and I managed to tick another place off of my list; The Breakfast Club. We arrived at the Battersea Rise branch about 3pm and had to queue about 10 minutes to get in. We couldn't decide what to order, but Jen eventually decided on the avocado and poached eggs on toast and I had the chorizo hash.. both of which were uhhhmazing. I had my mind set on the pancakes & berries before we arrived so I couldn't leave without tasting these too, which were also incredible. We finished up our brunch then headed to the train station, with full bellies and more great memories.



Have you ever been to Pizza East or The Breakfast Club? Have you got any foodie recommendations? Also, do you like to read these type of posts?
