Pink Sunday

 

Well hi! Sorry for the slight absence, this week I’ve finally felt more in the swing of things at work, but that all said my MH is taking a bit of a knock. No rhyme or reason, just ‘cos it wants to be a PAIN. In the midst of all of this however, I had a pretty exciting Sunday planned…

The lovely Hels of the Hels Project, and Abbey of Abbey Louisa Rose, and I decided we’d been chatting on Twitter for far too long, and it was in fact high-time we got together! One group WhatsApp and several exchanges of determining what dates we were free and where we could go, we settled on Sunday 16th, and to head to the most instagrammable place Central London has to offer – Peggy Porschen.

We also decided to abide by Hels’ tweet:

 

 

I’m trying to be more of a tourist in my own city, and to be honest I just can’t believe how pretty Victoria is generally – I used to work just near there in Pimlico, but never really explored further (though if you *do* go to Pimlico, be sure to head to Moo Cantina and try their Empanadas – they are SO. GOOD… But that’s another story.)

As someone who has been on a few (terrible) internet dates in my time (my love life, to finding my awesome housemates, pretty much all aspects of my life – it seems – are procured through the world wide web….), I was just as full of butterflies as I would be normally, however, Hels and Abbey soon put me at ease, and before we knew it the table was laden with the most-heavenly and instagrammable cakes and pink lemonades and we were chatting away just like old friends do ๐Ÿ™‚

^Pic by Hels. That girls flatlay skills!ย 

The cakes were delicious – I went for strawberries and champagne which came with the most amazing liqeur truffle on top, Abbey went for theย Lemon Raspberry and Champagne (which had the cutest sprinkles in it within the layers!) and Hels had this cute little concoction, which came with it’s very own jam-squeezing capsule:

One of the funnest (and probably less talked about aspects of this cute little cafe!) is the people watching! We definitely saw some characters – my particular favourites being one blonde and brunette girl who were basically wearing inverse matching outfits (where one wore a pink shirt the other wore white, and so on!). You could play ‘Spot The Blogger’ for hours here! We soon participated in that game, although we’ll have to co-ordinate our inverse-matching outfits better next time ๐Ÿ˜‰

Isn’t she just the CUTEST?ย 

Literal heart-eye emoji at Abbey’s outfit!ย 


excuse how awful I look here – I ended up running super late so hence the minimal makeup and my hair + HUMIDITY are not friends.ย 

Peggy P’s is super-cute; price-wise it’s notย tooย bad, we each paid around ยฃ8 for cake and a lemonade. The seating inside is teeny tiny, however they do have outside seating which was lovely on a day like today but minimally covered.ย We were also ridiculously lucky to grab a seat (all thanks to Abbey and her seat-nabbing prowess!) – it getsย insanely busy there – we actually witnessed a table being asked to leave as they’d been there a few hours and the queue was out the door.

I’d definitely recommend Peggy Porschen’s – it’s really adorable, even if you just go for a little meander / to snap a pick on the door step! Grab yourself a cake and wander round Victoria – I’d never really realised just how beautiful that part of town was, until we walked off our cake taking a stroll around some of the back streets.

I had such a lovely afternoon with Abbey and Hels – I’d always beens super nervous about meeting blogging gals in real life but I can’t wait for our next outing together! We’re thinking of ways we could do a big meet up, so any ideas or thoughts you have, let us know ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you been to Peggy Porschen?

    Aww reading this made me so incredibly happy! All the photos have come out beautifully! I am glad that our girls day out was an improvement on your last experience of meeting someone from the Internet and that we didn’t have to call things off after half an hour! ๐Ÿ™ˆ It was such a pleasure to spend the day chatting with you and Hels, Peggy Porschen certainly didn’t disappoint! Looking forward to the next one already!

    I am loving how thereโ€™s a bit of pink everywhere – it works so well! Thatโ€™s amazing that you guys were all around the same area to meet up- I think all bloggers are on the opposite side of the world from me hahaha And yes to exploring your own city! I feel like when weโ€™ve stayed in one place for so long we think we know everything about it only to realize thereโ€™s still more to discover!

    Also wow what! a! flatlay! The pink frosting on the cake, pink lemonade and the strawberry muffin – everything is on point!

    Iโ€™m loving the bike with the flowers in the basket in front! This just reminded me how much I want to just take a bike ride and just explore – also pink everything! Personally not a huge fan of pink but Iโ€™m loving everything about this place!

    โ€œThe people watchingโ€ hahaha itโ€™s such an aesthetically pleasing place I think โ€˜Spot the bloggerโ€™ would be a really fun game to play because itโ€™s like a magnet!

    You all look amazing – love all of your outfits!

    Oh for an idea to meet up for you guys how about finding a bike trail? (if you all like bike riding that is hahaha I was reminded about bikes when I saw the pink bike photo!)

      Thank you for your lovely comment! It was definitely a people-watching haven! Great idea about the bike ride, only I can’t ride a bike ๐Ÿ™ˆ ha! It’s on my bucket list to learn and get sorted so we’ll definitely have to consider it as an option for the bloggers day out!
