October, In Review

Back on, what I hope to be the last, annual grind of application forms for legal vacation schemes and training contracts. the research and jotting of ideas was in full force.

Generally, October was a bit of a de-cluttering month: I got rid of the old and the unnecessary.

In more ways than one.

(I appear to have taken a lot of photos of doorways; entirely unintentional!)

After a disappointingly mediocre brunch at SIX Brasserie in Cambridge (DO NOT order the "Spicy Tomato Baked Eggs" - it's bland and tasted just as bad as it looked: boring), I was walking through a mew and came across this wonderful sight. Talk about "instagrammable" right?!

COURIER MAGAZINE One of my favourite magazine transitioned from a free offering to a paid-for offering. I was a bit sceptical as to whether the content would be better and therefore justifying the £5 price tag, but I was pleasantly surprised that it does just this. I picked it up at the best newsagents, only a short walk from my office, Charlotte Street News.

I spent far too much time on:

Hunting for
*THE* perfect knee-high boots.

This month, many a boot was loved, tried on and consequently loathed due to unflattering baggy-ness.

However, after some forlorn moments and lots of Google searches featuring varied combinations of the phrases "knee high boot leather slim", I came across *THE* boot!

Good quality leather: check. Slim on the calf: check. A zip: check. Yes! Who'd have thought, it can all be wrapped into one and to top it all off, in the sale: check!

The boots in question are the Dune Tallister Knee-High Sock Boot. I had never bought from Dune before, but I am pleasantly surprised.

JAMIE OLIVER'S FIFTEEN // 15 Westland Pl, London Three words: CRISPY. POTATO. CAKES. They come with a truffle and marmite sauce - sorry, aioli.  Order them. Do not hesitate in doing so. Even if you hate marmite (I do). You will LOVE them. Also, they have such a varied Gin list and the cocktail menu is structured in the form of starters, mains and desserts. The food didn't "wow" me though, but that is not to say it was bad. I still can't stop thinking about those potato cakes...

I spent too little time on:

researching
my business idea

I don't know whether my idea is any good/is viable/is already being performed elsewhere, but I am eager to find out! It's just finding the time to do so that's the problem.

I've got the drive, just no time to exert it!

Hopefully in November.

I tried something new over on my Instagram. I don't think it was well-received, nonetheless I am proud of the post.


SAUCY // 52 Tottenham Court Road, LDN I've been told that I have very bad patience, however I kid you not, I managed to queue for 40 minutes for Saucy's soft launch of free pasta. Just launched not too far from Goodge St. Station on Tottenham Court Road, Saucy serves fresh pasta and spiralised vegetable dishes with fresh sauces. I shall definitely be visiting again, although I have a feeling the pasta won't taste as good as it did when it was free!

I took this snap while I was rushing to Fifteen. You just can't beat the contrast of quirky neon lighting on a cold and dark evening – in a way, it sort of perks up the darkness both with its colour but also its candidness.
