24th Feb: Catch up with the brunch club
As you get older, you realised that its harder to make new friends especially when you are working. You do have your colleagues but its kind of hard to develop that relationship at a personal level, however I feel lucky that I could find such kindred spirits at my last job. It has been harder to keep in touch after you move jobs but I think its necessary to have friends within the industry you work in so that you can learn from them as well as network.
Our little brunch club went to the Ralph Lauren Bar & Cafe and bar at the Regent street store. Its a cosy little place but do place a reservation for the tables (you can reserve on their website) if you are going as the place literally is cosy as it can get. Even if you haven’t reserved, you can still get a seat at the bar if its not busy. I ordered the Homestyle pancakes and hot ginger tea, the pancakes were fluffy and filling but quite good so I managed to eat it all. My friends ordered the Avocado Toast and Bagel and Smoked Salmon and they enjoyed both of them. We didn’t have any drinks but there are many options to choose.
After our brunch, we went around the Mayfair area and had a little photoshoot, I had too much fun posing about, so have quite a few OOTD photos to post. As always, I went with an all black outfit incorporating all the AW trends – the beret is from yesstyle, the coat is from H&M, I had a turtleneck knit under from zara, jeans from topshop, boots from asos and the bumbag is from skinnydip, oh, and the sunglasses is from primark.
