Tapas & Tate

Paula The LDN Diaries

The Tate Modern has just opened up a new building, I do love a visit to the Tate and so definitely had to go and check out the new area.  The new building is entitled the Switch House has a twisted pyramid like shape and has ten levels all the way up to the top, which will house a whole array of modern art. At the top there is a viewing platform which I was excited to go up, but before all that, it was time for food.

As it was lunch, Danny and I went for a stunning tapas brunch at Camino just right opposite the Tate Modern. It was a lovely sunny day so we took a table outside on the terrace and got ready to fill our bellies with lots of lovely tapas. Camino means  ‘path’ or ‘journey’ in Spanish and it refers to owner Richard Bigg’s first road trip across Spain in a tiny black Mini. Armed with a map and a camera, he fell in love with the country, so much so that he quit his uninspiring City job as a trader and decided to continue travelling. Read More »

6 Of The Best Wall Stickers

6 of the best Wall Stickers

I’ve always known about adhesive wallpaper that you can easily stick up and take down, but I never considered wall stickers as an option. I recently featured these in my post about how to add colour to your home and instantly fell in love with them. They are easy to apply and can really transform a wall and/or room. There are so many fun ones out there, in bright colours or the more traditional black and white.

So if you are after some inspiration to brighten up your next interiors project, here are 6 of my favourite wall stickers. Read More »

Gaucho, Chancery Lane

Gaucho Chancery Lane

What more would you want on a Tuesday night than a good steak? Paula and I visited Gaucho on Chancery Lane, just off Fleet Street and under a ten minute walk from Holborn. As you might expect from our recent London food reviews we were more than happy to visit and enjoy a good steak and wine.

If you have ever been to a Gaucho restaurant, you will probably remember how dark Gaucho’s are. The Chancery Lane Gaucho was actually one of the lightest Gaucho’s I had visited, we sat just inside the door on the lower level. The restaurant got increasingly busy, a good sign being a Tuesday night and middle of the month. The interior was typically smart, sleek black walls, leather with cow print patches throughout the seating area and also featured lighting.  Gaucho is well-known for its Argentinian steaks and wines and the menu is packed with plenty different choices of both.

Holiday Hair Heroes

Holiday Hair Tips

When it comes to holiday hair, I think I’m doing good as long as I’ve not gone full on Monica. You know when Monica from Friends goes on the beach trip and her hair has blown up because of the humidity? On our trip to Santorini I took a whole load of hair products in tow with me, probably more than I ever have done on holiday as I was determined to control my locks and I also had to check my luggage in as hand luggage just wasn’t an option for me with all my products I was taking. So I was free to bring all manner of sizes and bottles that I wanted to, hurrah! Read More »
