My Weekend in Pictures...

Two weeks on from our party fuelled Portuguese adventure the madness hasn't let up and without a moment to stop and recuperate it's fair to say we've morphed into dishevelled versions of our former selves!

Enough is I opted for a weekend of R&R, sunshine, great food and catch-ups with good friends. However, as usual, there's never a dull moment and along the way I stumbled across some blog worthy gems which definitely deserve a mention!

From Shoreditch to Peckham - this is my weekend round up...

Despite a depressing weather outlook on my iPhone all week long, I woke up to the sun shining and a blue-ish sky, so I braved it with my new summer Zara bargain and off I trotted with my umbrella buried at the bottom of my tote as back up!


First stop Netil360 - I'm so in love with this beauty that I actually managed to tot up two visits in one week - what a discovery it is! One of my besties Nikki took me down in the week to watch the amazing Little Shoes Big Voice perform a rooftop acoustics session and I instantly fell head over heels for both the location and music! 
Just imagine listening to this live...
With this view...

A few days later I took Middle Mouse back for a daytime visit and my crush became full blown love!
Located just a stone's throw from Broadway Market, Netil House looks pretty shabby from the outside. It's definitely one of those secrets that if you don't know about it already, you'd be pushed to just stumble across it. A shame for those not in the know but it's amazing to have a rooftop option without a queue and that doesn't require a fight to get served at the bar! 

The best thing about it is it's BYOB... I know! Literally heaven in the sky! Entry is £5 unless you're a member (find out more here) and then you can bring in anything except spirits and pay a small corkage fee per bottle. 


Panoramic views of London's skyline, your own specific booze choice at a cut of standard bar prices and if you pick your visit wisely live music and BBQs...what more could you want?! 
The decor is simple yet chic - wooden decking, strings of exposed light bulbs, quirky graffiti and fairy lights. It's the perfect hangout with a young crowd and a chilled vibe...

We spent a lazy Saturday with a picnic (oh yes you can also bring your own food!) and Pimms whilst listening to a great DJ set with the perfect backdrop to while the day away. As the evening drew closer, the roof filled up and we hear it was set to be a fun night partying in the clouds, however as my aim was relaxation I trotted off before the mayhem began!

With my rooftop and sunbathing quota fulfilled, I made my way to East Dulwich for a night of cocktails, delicious food and gossipping with my fabulous friend Fran.

It pretty much started like this...


Involved a lot of this (food...but specifically Nigella Lawson's Pappardelle with Lamb Ragu...YUMSTERS!)...

And ended with us being beached whales on the sofa gawping at Magic Mike...I didn't think you'd appreciate a photo of that!

Exhausted from the day's antics and evening's feast we rolled into a deep slumber to recharge for a super Sunday!
After a lazy sleep-in and a few mugs of tea later, our tummies rumbling eventually signalled brunch time. Fran took charge and off we marched to Anderson & Co in Peckham for another delicious feast...

Goal accomplished - with not one hangover in sight! I finally feel human again and raring to go! And, -iIf you need me this week, I think it's pretty safe to assume I'll be up at Netil360...!!
