Much as I was home to see my lovely parents and Mr Sandy last week, I did have a more practical purpose: my passport had very little time left on it, so I desperately needed a new one! Living abroad does have it’s downsides! So a quick trip up to London for mummy and me, and a bit of hanging around in Victoria had to be done. I asked my resident Londoner for her suggestions for restaurants for in and around the area and she came up with a real winner!

// skirt // boots (reduced!) // scarf  (similar scarf here) // jumper 
// nail polish in rouge noir//

Tozi is a great Italian restaurant (as you might have guessed!) just across from Victoria station in the Park Plaza Hotel. It’s a great place to park yourself for the afternoon for a great lunch and some pretty comfy seats.

We had only planned to nip in for a long-ish lunch and then head out for a wander and explore a bit, but a combination of the rain outside, the great service and the atmosphere meant that we just didn’t move for hours!

As always when mum and I head out (or even stay in!) we started with a cheeky glass of wine (with me being very conscious that I had present myself as a reputable British citizen in a mere matter of hours to collect my passport!)

Yeap, that’s mum in the corner. She’s hiding from the camera as always!
In what seemed like two minutes these glorious pizza’s came fresh from the oven and were whisked straight over to us. I promised myself that after my recent home baking efforts and eating out in Rennes that I was going to step away from pizzas, but I just couldn’t resist!

We went for the “let’s get two and share” approach, so ordered a classic pepperoni and a parma ham, rocket and Parmesan number to be a little different!

They’re seriously tasty, and so light, which made them too easy to eat!

Not quite prepared to leave yet, we decided it was coffee time for me and tea time for mummy.

You guessed it, more hiding from mummy.

This skirt is actually a bit of a number in itself! Not only is it hugely comfortable, classic and just generally gorgeous, but it’s also got a lovely little price tag too. Go on, you know you want to have a look! They have some great pieces, and from what I’ve seen so far, the quality seems great – so definitely a site to watch!

Outfit wise, if you’re not a skirt kind of girl, I highly recommend the ASOS oversized scarf, it’s ohhh so comfy, and I’ve basically lived in it since I got it. It’s pretty much a blanket; in fact, I have used it as a blanket. But it’s so great, and so cosy, especially when it’s so cold outside!

But, after an afternoon of fun, it was time to head home. I just had time to snap this photo of St Paul’s Cathedral in all it’s glory from our taxi to the station.

At this point we were pretty grateful to be in a taxi – as it had just started to hailstone! I promise, the photo isn’t grainy, that’s the hailstones on the ground!

Oh yeah, and I had to have a major tourist moment when I discovered that my family name is a place in London. I’m just destined to be a Londoner!

If you’re ever in the area, I’d definitely recommend looking them up!
