Lost & found and out on the town!
I know it’s rather cheesy to blog about my own birthday but heck someone’s gotta! Saturday we headed into London (I truly cherish time I get to spend back in London when I’m not in Nottingham studying!) and my other half had a brilliant luxury wet shave and hair cut in Pall Mall barbers. The quaint gentlemens establishment just seconds from Soho has such an authentic feel and he appeared after an hour and a half like a new man, and may I add smelling like a DREAM. He highly recommends and so do I for any ladies looking to treat their man, they offer beautiful gift vouchers and all products used are available to buy.
The sudden down pour threw my vintage scouring right off track so instead sought refuge in Randall&Aubin in Soho for an early dinner. This is and always will be my absolute favourite restaurant in London, I wont give too much away for those who have never been but if you like seafood, vintage decor, disco balls and extremely loud old skool sounds then check it out!
It made sense to pop right next door to Madame Jojo’s for Lost&ound, a night celebrating the best of Jump Blues, Northern Soul and Rockabilly. Unless your in here early it proves difficult to swing your partner around in the crowds and seen as we got there quite late the dropped dancefloor was a no go, however your guaranteed great music everytime with the amazing and very entertaining resident DJ’s. To top off a great birthday I was handed a bottle of Sailor Jerry Vanilla&Lime, for those dedicated SJ drinkers out there who felt my heartache when it was discontinued will know how excited I was that my darling had managed to hunt down a bottle of the good stuff and in such an amazing tin too! (eBay rules once again)
Oh and of course we headed to The Diner on Carnaby Street for brunch…where else? Short stack of maple syrup pancakes with sausage can heal even the deadliest rock n roll induced hangover. It’s the only place where yet even more 50’s sounds reminiscent of the night before somehow pull you round and get your toes tappin’ again!
