#5 Life as we know it

Last weekend in pictures

Had the loveliest of meals at my local ASK restaurant. We started with butterfly king prawns:

Accompanied with the most delicious carafe of Merlot:

For my main, I had their Pollo Milanese - a very tasty breaded chicken dish which I see as ASK's answer to Wagamama's chicken's katsu. Although not curry based, ASK's mushroom based sauce is amazing.

Although I didn't order this myself, I still have to highly rate ASK's pork belly. Slow cooked in red wine and herbs, it fell off the bone and melted in your mouth:

I had a Zara binge where I purchased not one, but two white shirts:

1) Sheer white slouchy shirt with statement cuffs that I love!

2) White boyfriend fit shirt - I love wearing clothes that look like you've borrowed them from your bloke!

I also couldn't resist these stiletto peep toe ankle boots. The heels look scarily high but are actually amazingly comfortable to walk in! On Saturday night I went to Channel 4's Comedy Gala at the o2:

It was an amazing night and all for a good cause. My favourites were Lee Evans, Michael McIntyre, Jack Dee, Rhod Gilbert and Jason Byrne. For all UK readers, the show will be airing on Channel 4 on 7th June.

For the rest of the weekend I caught up with the latest episodes of CSI and Grimm with Yankee's Midsummers Night candle burning in the background:

Played around with my new camera - a very generous birthday gift 

Caught up on some essential reading:

And discovered that one of my cats really doesn't approve of my slippers...

Her face says it all!

  2. Your food photos always kill me. That pork belly from ASK D: I need it. And I've come close to buying that statement cuff shirt multiple times but I think I have enough white shirts to last me a lifetime!
