Mazi London

Mazi has been one of my favourite spots in Notting Hill for quite some time now so it’s terrible really that I haven’t even featured it on here! I recently visited this lovely greek restaurant again when my parents were in town so took some quick snap shots of our dinner to show you. Mazi has been around since 2012 and is located in one of the cutest areas in Notting Hill, tucked away behind Notting Hill Gate in Hillgate Village; where the streets are filled with cute little colourful houses. An instagramers dream let me tell you ;)

However, Mazi isn’t your traditional greek restaurant because they say they take inspiration from the traditional greek table but reinvent them with a modern twist. I fell in love with this hidden gem years ago and have been back many times since. Every dish is delicious, the interior and vibe has a lovely relaxed cosy feel (and they have an amazing back courtyard in summer where you can eat al fresco!) and the service is always friendly and efficient.

The Ai Weiwei Exhibition – Royal Academy London

On Sunday I went to the Ai Weiwei exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. Ai Weiwei is a Chinese contemporary artist and activist that became widely known in Britain after his sunflower seeds installation in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall in 2010. The exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts looks at the last 20 years of his work, including political pieces relating to his time under arrest in China and to the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. Here some quick photos from my visit to the Ai WeiWei exhibition…

Hat Love

Hat’s are always a big trend for autumn and winter and I am a hat lover so that suits me just perfectly. When I was younger I had a real thing for hats and I had quite the collection – people always say I have a ‘hat face’ but then for a period I just found myself always buying hats, but never wearing them so I got rid of most of them. Um, why oh why did I think that was such a clever idea?! Anyway, I’ve rediscovered my love for hats and especially the rimmed kind; floppy, fedora, panama – you name it! I think a hat brings a cool vibe to any outfit. Here a photo of a recent hat purchase :)

Ostuni Restaurant in Queens Park – Cucina Pugliese

I’ve got a new local favourite and I just can’t stop talking to people about it, so it’s probably about time I told you guys all about it. Let me introduce you to Queens Park best kept secret; Ostuni Restaurant! I think Ostuni has actually been about a 5 minute walk from my house ever since I moved to the area about 1,5 years ago but it was one of those places people told me about and said; you need to go. And then for some reason I just never did. Until I actually did, and loved it so much that I can’t stop going there again, and again, and again!

Ostuni is pretty much London’s first restaurant dedicated to the cuisine and wines of Puglia. Puglia is a region in the in boot of Italy, known for some of the best food you can think of; simple and full of flavour. There’s pasta, seafood, meat and lets not forget cheese; for example Burrata which originates from Puglia. Have I mentioned before btw that I am slightly obsessed with Burrata? It’s DELICIOUS! Anyway, where was I? Oh yes Ostuni Restaurant is located in a lovely quiet mews off Salusbury Road and the interior is very rustic, cosy but also modern. They have a great leafy terrace outside and when I am there I always feel a bit like I am actually in Italy on holiday!
