Let me just go collect a few more scrap metal bits to sell so I can once again afford to take some more shots inside Roganic to show you. Or, just book and go, actually. I don’t think I’m confident enough to explain what the dishes are anyway, that’s usually Sophie‘s job and I’m the pizza-belly photographer that nods fiercely pretending to know what a hake is. (‘Yes, this hake is so delicious, can one grow it in the garden?‘) The funny thing is, I didn’t near expect Roganic to be this good despite all the gushing, although when I arrived at the address the low-key grey-pistachio exterior with frosted windows did throw me off a bit. When I plan to spend £60+ for a lunch I expect at least a carpet of some variant of red, and servants, bowing. But then again yours truly is cheap-azz that cry over a £6 burger. I went for the 6 course option, only because it’s a no-choice tasting menu which means the 3 course option would’ve been like having glorified finger food for lunch and the 10 course option would’ve been having LOTS AND LOTS of finger food for lunch. If you’re a foodie feel free to leave that dijon mustard-smear in my comment box now. Said glorified finger-food was beautifully presented on surfaces with contrasting or complimenting textures, and served with the most adequate tempo; every course had such harmony within itself – by the time we were on dessert my palate had been active like an LED dance floor. The only time I’ve had that kind of party in my mouth was when I first tried peanut butter and Oreos after watching Parent Trap in 1998…. YUM. Before the company put two and two together and forever ruined adolescent excitement of of food-experimentation, that is.

Streetstyle from Style Slicker

I love this girl’s style. The gray dress with the white tulle, the red shoes, hair tied up…so cute. a tulle skirt is definitely a mission to complete when I get back to London.

Nice DIY chain inspiration. (All my DIY missions are put on hold until I get back to London though, for those wondering why none of them aren’t being done…)

More things my mother gave me: Rabbit Stole and Silk blouse. Currently I am only wearing five layers of duvet  out because of the cold – hence the lack of outfit photos maybe.

Fashion Blogs with noteworthy photography:

Cherry Blossom Girl

Style Digger

and of course the famous Le Blog de Betty

Just having a big camera doesn’t mean everyone can poop out photos like they do. Styling, location, theme, atmosphere…not an easy job. (Sob :'( )

That’s all.
