This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...

Wahoooooooooooo Fri-Yay is upon us!! 


Yes I do!!!

This week has been pretty full on work wise but we battled on through and now we're in for a treat! It's the first week middle and mini have been in the same country and it's pretty awesome to have my partner in crime back! Just a shame the other is over 5,000 miles away...boo hoooo!

When we haven't been working like a demon or giggling and gossipping like all sisters should, this week the Mice have mostly been....

Scoffing a bloody good breakfast at the new brunch spot Egg Break in Notting Hill. Over the past two months since opening, our Instagram feeds have been crammed full of yolk oozing pics just testing our clean and lean will power! 

We eventually caved and planned a visit last Sunday. Conveniently located about 150 metres from Notting Hill tube station, you can get your egg fix and then mosey on round the corner for a full day of fun roaming Portobello road or browsing the boutiques of Westbourne Grove. 

Egg Break is from the ever growing Soho House group and as always they didn't disappoint. Keep your eyes peeled for the old Thai Break restaurant on Uxbridge Street which has been renovated into the perfect brunch hideaway. I loved everything, from the outside awning with the previous restaurant name crossed out and Egg scrawled across the front, to the shabby-chic, chilled interior and delicious menu of course!

Inside you'll find a cave of winding stairs, hidden cubbies and basement seating, ideal for a lazy Sunday of munching, slurping and oodles of yolk oozing! You may have to wait for a table initially as there's no reservations (yawn!) but this place is pretty big and we were seated within five minutes.




The menu is, as the name suggests, egg focused - from cocktails to breakfast, and brunch to desserts...they've got it all covered. 



We couldn't resist starting with fluffy Pisco sours - even though it had only just passed midday...





I wasn't so keen on picture taking...



And when it all gets a little bit too much only a temper tantrum will suffice....


Followed by a portion of broken eggs and chorizo...


The much instagrammed pork belly bun...yum yum yum...


And to finish off, a must have round of Clover Clubs - seriously delish, so much so I totally forgot to get you a snap!!

We didn't have room for the divine sounding baked salted caramel custard but next time we're coming for youuuuuu!!!!

Experiencing a serious case of guilt every time I spy the beautiful cashmere, silk and delicate knitwear sitting at the bottom of my laundry basket, just waiting for the next rare visit to the dry cleaners! 

It's always a pain when you check the care label of your new favourite purchase to find a pesky hand wash or dry clean only symbol. I know at that point I'll only see it approximately twice a year when I find time to detour to the dry cleaners and back again to collect everything! 

Well dig out those hidden gems and sign up to the fab I Hate Ironing to solve all your problems! You'll be obsessed in no time mark my words...! 

All hassle is taken out of the job - they pick everything up, do their magic and return all your hard to launder togs in pristine condition. And, all within 8 hours if you wish....a chore no more let me tell you! All you have to do is create an account, select your one hour pick up slot and get the garments ready in a bag for collection. 

I seriously couldn't believe how easy and seamless the service was, you even get a reminder text of your pick up slot which you can reply to if you're running late or need to rearrange. The price per garment is much cheaper than my local dry cleaner and as long as you hit the £20 minimum the return delivery is free - pretty awesome no?! Check out the price list here and TOP SECRET but the lovely faces behind the brand have offered our blog readers £10 off their first dry cleaning order, just use the coupon code HEL10 to redeem!

Forget planning outfits a week in advance and most importantly racing home from work to collect everything before closing...oh no our new best friends have it all covered! 


Right on that note I'm off to dress up in non machine washable clothes and get ready to watch the rugby (aka spy on hot boys)!!


Have a great weekend!
