V&A CAFE


I feel like I've been repeating myself over and over again, but just in case someone hasn't heard that yet, The V&A is my favourite museum in London, to which I have been hundreds of time, so imagine my amazement when, while surfing on the internet, I accidentally discovered that it's also a home to the world's oldest museum restaurant with beautiful and majestic period rooms. 

Located just behind the main courtyard, the place welcomes museum goers with three different tea rooms, Morris, Gamble and Poynter. Apparently, they look almost the same as in the mid-nineteenth century when they were first opened. High vaulted ceilings, tiled walls, stained glass and ceramic pillars reflect the taste of Victorian era.

The cafe offers a nice selection of hot and cold dishes, salads, sandwiches and pastries. The choice for vegans is unfortunately pretty limited (didn't find any sweet vegan options) but the stuffed sweet potato that you can see below was delish!

Vegan London #1 // Ethos, Fitzrovia


I pretty often receive comments and messages in which I am asked to recommend places in London where you can find yummy vegan food so I almost feel like I am on a mission (a very pleasurable mission I have to admit!) to try a lot of different options London offers.

Two weeks ago, me and my friend Natalia went to Ethos Restaurant, which is located on Eastcastle Street, just off Oxford Street. It's a vegetarian self-service buffet with plenty of  vegan options and a pay-by-weight concept that specializes in diverse dishes from around the world. 

I paid over £14 for my plate which I found a bit expensive but the food I chose was very delicious and flavorful. A bit lukewarm but I didn't mind that. Everything was clearly labelled thus much easier for people with specific dietary requirements and allergies. The service was also brilliant. We were served by a lovely and very attentive person. I loved the neutral interior with lots of plants. Surprisingly, they have a lot of vegan dessert options too but we were too full to be tempted to try one but I will be definitely back soon!

Thank you Natalia for great pictures of me and Filip and a lovely company!

Filip


Hey Guys! I would love to introduce you to someone! It's Filip, my seven-month-old son. It's been ages since my last post here, over a year to be exact and I have been really missing blogging so I thought I might give you a little update. :-)

We are doing very well. I am really enjoying being a mum and he is such a bundle of joy and energy.
I am incredibly lucky to work from home now and get to watch him grow up. 

The beginnings were pretty difficult and it took us a while to find our routine, but once it did, everything seems to be much easier and I even find time to follow my hobbies.

If you want to see more of us, please follow me on MY INSTAGRAM as I am there more often.

I am pregnant!


I feel like I often start a post this way but again, if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you probably already know that me and Daniel are expecting our first baby in December. Writing this post I am almost 14 weeks pregnant and still constantly feeling like a ship on a choppy sea. I cannot wait to meet this little rascal to let him/her know what I think of that behaviour. 

I think we can also blame the baby for my recent absence. I've been experiencing all possible symptoms of pregnancy you can google, including pretty severe sickness and drowsiness. 

Not really surprisingly, I guess, the pregnancy hast taken over my whole life, my thoughts and body and although I have already had three scans and had a chance to see the little wriggly one and listen to his/her heartbeat, it's still so surreal and hard to believe that we did it, especially we'd been trying for a while. We feel so blessed and happy!

Lastly, I am so thankful for all the comments and messages I received after announcing the pregnancy on my social media. You cannot imagine how much they all mean to me and I still remember the little moment of the announcement when I couldn't focus on working, continuously scrolling through all my accounts and pages instead. Thank you guys so much! 

ps. please excuse my serious face in the pictures, that was one of the difficult days I am writing about above. :p
