I’ll be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of New Year’s Eve. In my opinion, it’s a little over-hyped and I’ve always thought that people put a little too much pressure on themselves to have a perfect night. So, when a dear friend suggested that we opt for a late dinner at NOPI in London, I knew this was the right mix of festive and fun without going too crazy!
London has its fair share of quirky yet delicious restaurant concepts and Burger + Lobster is definitely one of them. On a Sunday, I went with a few friends to the new Little Portland Street outpost.
Today was an amazing day – Dunkin’ Donuts opened a central London location adjacent to the Baker Street underground!
As a former employee and huge fan, having a taste of home is pretty exciting. Dunkin’ even has a proper Iced Coffee with Splenda. None of this Iced Americano or hot coffee poured over ice – the real deal!
And yes, there are donuts. Lots and lots of decadent donuts – I was impressed by the flavor options!
Ah, Paris. Always a good idea, especially when it’s the setting for an epic girls weekend. Between the warm weather, incredible food, sightseeing and a few surprise encounters, the magic of Paris made this trip memorable. Here are my tips and recommendations on how to spend a girls weekend in Paris.
Where To Stay
I absolutely adore Hotel Le Bellechasse in St. Germain. Decorated by Christian Lacroix, the hotel is in a fantastic location blocks from Musée d’Orsay. The hotel only has 33 guest rooms, free wi-fi and the service is great.
London is known for its supercars – especially in the summer, when foreigners ship in exotic, incredibly expensive cars. Although I’m pretty sure this one is in London year-round, I recently came up close with one of the more unique luxury cars in Knightsbridge – a velvet wrapped Rolls Royce. It’s quite a sight to see.
And, in case you’re wondering….I did not touch the car. But, I’ll admit it – I was tempted to!
