• [Invite] Frie-nally... HELLO LONG WEEKEND! This spread is just what the bank holiday weekend calls for (or any day of the week to be fair 😏🤤) It's all about those Cheesy fries @shakeshackuk 🤤🤤 Although I tried the 'Shroom burger his week, and it was awesome - even had hidden melty cheese inside the breaded mushroom patty. The concretes (basically ice cream to you and I) were fab too - we each tried a different one 😏 This was all at the newly refurbished Shack in the Covent Garden piazza. A little more space to queue, and a better area for being served - same outside seating area which I actually really like. You're outside, but under cover and can hear the musicians downstairs - what's not to like? .

  • It's a-BAO-t time things started getting summery 😏😂 A slow cooked aromatic duck bao, with spring onion, cucumber & hoisin sauce, and a slow cooked Indian spiced lamb shoulder bao, with mango chutney, cucumber yoghurt, tomato & coriander from the @marksandspencerfoodpr summer press show (FESTIVAL!) yesterday. The baos were so squidgy and fluffy, and both fillings really tasty. Duck definitely won it though! We had so much tasty food last night which made me super excited for all things summery - check out my stories for more! #mymarksfave

  • This weather just makes me want to be sat in a garden with a cocktail 🌞🍹 But for some things it's worth staying inside... we went to see Emilia in theatre last night and it was INCREDIBLE.  The acting, the way they worked the play around the audience, the humour, the female empowerment. Everything. It's definitely the funniest play I've seen and I'll be recommending everyone to go! .
On another note, how's it already been a week since we were sat out in the Tropical Garden at Barrio celebrating Abi's hen do? 😳 Where's this year going? .

  • Mmmm...momos 😍😍 Every meal in Tangra starts with these beauties 🤤 and we are there for that! These chicken momos (steamed, hearty dumplings) with soy, garlic & spring onions were dreamy - succulent, soft dumpling, packed with flavour. The dips were fab too. What a start to a fantastic feast @fattpundit 😍 Everything impressed...including the chilly paneer pictured too. Full review went live on he blog - link in bio. [Invite - as part of ELG team] .

  • Everything is pasta-ble..even on a Monday 😏 Haven't stopped thinking about this mushroom pasta dish @trullo_restaurant since driving past yesterday on the way back into London. So I bet you can guess what we had to make for dinner this eve? 🤤😍 It wasnt as good as this (obvs), but our bolognaise sure satisfied the pasta craving. .

  • How is the weekend already done? 🙄 En route back into the big city, I did say how nice it was to come back to London. And I really mean it. It's great to escape for a day or so, especially when it involves a fun night with friends, but its equally as nice to come home. Especially when you love your flat 💕 .

  • Boozy brunching the Italian way. Well, actually, according to the title of the menu at Apero, it's an afternoon at Grandma's. And we can tell you, they do that right. So much delicious food, including this fab seafood risotto, which had plenty of fish and flavour. There was also a charcuterie board (you can see some of it in the corner - after it was attacked), an amazing homemade foccacia and more. The bottomless bit offered prosecco, mimosas OR Aperol Spritz!! Bet you can guess what I ordered 😏🍊 Such a fab afternoon brunching last Saturday at Apero @ampersandhotel - I've been telling everyone they just HAVE to go! [Invite for ELG team] .

  • WANTED: one strong, fancy aperitif. Must be sharp, yet sweet. Perhaps with a citrus touch. Lemon peel optional. Rosemary a nice to have. .
These would go down such a treat right now.. the Lorne Aperitif and the Vesper 180 @lorne_restaurant 😍
.
It'd just finish a stressful week off nicely, ya know?! .

  • What an experience 😍🙌🏻 Last night we tried the Naan'ery menu at the @baluchi.london bread bar.. but we didnt just sit and watch, @chefjomon let us get involved, to learn from the master! (He's actually been on celebrity masterchef!). We learnt how to roll and fill naan, and watched as they cooked in the tandoor oven (a little too hot to do that bit haha), and listened to so many inspiring and interesting tales from Chef Jomon. He's so funny, passionate and friendly! Then we feasted 🤤. Which was just as incredible. What a night. Stories coming shortly with the food.. definitely worth a look.. and a visit!

  • Ok, can we just rewind a little?! Had another FAB weekend and not quite ready for it to be over. I'd even take just going back to yesterday afternoon.. and this delicious raspberry & lemon drizzle cake made by @sweetmondayblog (she's promising the recipe will be up soon!), a cuppa and a good catchup 😍 How was your weekend? .

Lashes of Lifestyle (aka CloHutch_)

About Me

I’m Chloe aka @CloHutch_. A 27-year-old Londoner, used to be Midlander. Brunette and a tiny bit short – but hey I like my height!

PR by day, I couldn’t imagine my evenings and weekends without a blog to write, recipe to create or photographs to take – I’m also a freelance food photographer.

I am determined to make the most of everything, and want to tell the world of all the fantastic discoveries I make along the way!

Madrid, Things to do and see

I love days and evenings out with friends but I do love a good night in just as much – how awesome is a night snuggled up inside in the winter, hot chocolate in hand watching your favourite tv shows? Get my point?

You’ll probably find me…Eating out & finding new restaurants and pop-ups|In the kitchen whipping up something tasty|Out exploring the streets of London| Singing my heart out at a concert| At the Theatre watching in absolute awe|Getting as fit as possible at the gym or the latest fitness class| Exploring a new city/country (my new goal to do more of!)| Exploring the current exhibitions| Lounging in the park sipping a cider or in my front room catching up on my fave tv shows.

I love anything which includes Marmite, peanut butter or avocado – perhaps not all together, that could be weird! – and I  love getting creative in the kitchen, which I’m sure you’ll see from my weekly recipes, it’s just so therapeutic.

I do head back to the Midlands quite often, to see my Sister and niece in Birmingham, and my parents and the rest of my family nearby, so you’re sure to find the odd West Midlands based post on here too.

I hope you enjoy reading!

I love to hear what people think, and always up for a chat. Please do feel free to get in contact – lashesoflifestyle@gmail.com

    How fun for you to live in London!!

    1. lashesoflifestyle

      I love it. I have had so many more experiences than when living back near home (The Midlands). Always something going on, something to see and do, and everything is so close. The breaks to visit home are nice, but don’t think I could go back for good. Love city living!

      1. LFFL

        I’m a city girl myself. I totally understand.

  4. Mia Takes on the World

    I studied Psychology in University too, and for the exact same reason. Human behaviour is fascinating, indeed! 🙂

    1. lashesoflifestyle

      It really is fascinating, when you think about it everything really derives from the way we act. We’re both only in the positions we are because of past and present behaviour. It’s all pretty exciting. And to think with hard work you can change the way you behave too. I’m forever thinking what if I hadn’t changed previously – makes me pretty grateful for now!
