I’m currently very busy designing my SS17 collection and Notting Hill is the perfect place to get creative. I’m loving London life, and last week went to a fabulous ‘Olympia to Rio’ Olympics theme party at Homehouse which was so much fun!
Moving to London has been amazing so far. I love the hustle and bustle of it – Here are my top places to visit in Notting Hill:
1. Granger & Co. - grangerandco.com
This amazing restaurant has the ultimate breakfasts and brunches. I’ve been popping down here early morning to get my smoothie fixes, and I’d recommend the ‘Green Goddess’ to get your day started, made with avocado and spinach. Check these guys out – there’s something for everyone here.
2. The Life Centre - http://www.thelifecentre.com/
Founded in 1993, The Life Centre is a friendly haven, where yoga, Pilates and natural therapies inspire well-being. I am a great lover of yoga, and always have been – while building inner core strength it can also help relax the mind. I’ve been coming here as much as I can. The Life centre is open 7 days a week and open 6:30am – 9:30pm so no excuses!
3. Daylesford Organic Farm http://daylesford.com/
Daylesford farm café has the most delicious menu which is all organic and completely sustainable from their own farms – besides being incredibly delicious. I’ve visited here a couple of times, not only does the farm have a café, but also boasts a shop including a fishmonger, butcher and bakery too.
4. The Oak - http://theoaklondon.com
The Oak restaurant is my new local – with a gorgeous cocktail bar upstairs and restaurant downstairs this is the perfect hangout for me. They even do take-away pizza in their open pizza oven, which I’m yet to try. If you’re eating I’d recommend the seared tuna, with quinoa and balsamic salad.
5. The Farm Girl - http://www.thefarmgirl.co.uk/
For the health conscious, this gorgeous café was started by Rose Mann, who prides herself in delivering fresh, locally sourced food to her customers. This is a great place to meet friends – the atmosphere is relaxed and cool. Grab yourself some berry pancakes made with homemade buckwheat mix, amber maple syrup & fresh berries. Heaven!
