Gyoza Bar, Covent Garden

Gyoza Bar, Covent Garden review - a small menu of gyoza, bar and ramen can be found in the heart of Covent Garden

You know when you've been Instagram stalking somewhere because you have an unconditional love for gyoza and they are always posting porn-ish pictures of their dumplings?  I found Gyoza Bar when I was looking for somewhere to get some lunch before my candy making class but alas, the class was in a completely different area to where I though it was so didn't get to visit.

That is until I semi took control over where two primary school pals and I were going to meet...

Birthday Adventures aka Best Day of my Life!

Boy, oh boy have I had the best birthday, no, DAY of my life!  

Mr Jones is ridiculously good at present buying and always manages to find me the perfect things no matter how small or large - a book he thinks I'd love from a charity shop, a candy making class, a beautiful necklace...I was particularly excited for my birthday this year after he emailed me a detailed itinerary with three adventures involving three of my favourite things and an intriguing "costume change" at the end of the day.  Yes, I had an itinerary for my birthday.  We love a good itinerary.

But I was stumped.  A day with three of my favourite things?  Hell, I couldn't even think of three of my favourite things (except kittens, that's a given!).  What on earth would I be doing?!

What I Got Up To: March 2017

What a beautiful month!  Spring is my favourite time of year - flowers are blooming, the sun is out (but not so warm that I start to melt) and everyone seems to be more cheerful than in the gloomy winter months.

After living in Twickenham for just about a year and a half, I finally went to my first rugby game!  I was lucky enough to watch the Harlequins vs Newcastle Falcons from the comfort of one of the boxes (thank you Mr Jones' job!) which was a real treat - a proper dining table, delicious buffet and plenty of wine!  The wine and food was a bit of a distraction but I managed to sit through the first half of the game.  I still don't really understand how it works though...

Dinner at Hakkasan, Mayfair

You know a restaurant is good when you're still raving about one of their dishes over a year since you last visited (Chilean sea bass...).  So when an invite popped up in my work inbox and I saw the magical word "Hakkasan",  I instantly opened the attached menu, scanned down the set meals and hurrah!  Sea bass!  Invitation accepted!

Hakkasan was founded in London in London in 2001 and there are now 13 locations dotted around the globe (maybe next time we can go to the one in Vegas?!).  I visited the Mayfair restaurant which was opened in 2010 and has been awarded a Michelin star every year since 2012.

What I Got Up To: February 2017

The sun has got his hat on, the daffs are in full bloom and the shops are full of Mini Eggs - spring is here!

February wasn't too busy a month for me (I'm still claiming to be recovering from the busy nightmare at work that was Christmas) but managed to fit in a few fun things - Thai food with my pal Loulou, a candy making masterclass and taking part in Aunt Peaches' final Valentine Swap (it was so lovely to get a little crafty and to receive snail mail!).

How was your February?
