Photo Diary#8 Playing in Chelsea

Outside The Saatchi Gallery | Warm coffee cocktail | my favourite Little Black Jacket prints | French market cakes

Hey darlings, how the hell are your weekends going so far?!
I woke up this morning with an extremely fuzzy head. Champagne and cocktail hangover you see, after a day and night playing in Chelsea. I literally can't remember last time I was this hungover! 

Yesterday after a feisty game of tennis (I think I finally got the hang of it), Stef and I decided to head over to Chelsea to take a peek at the new exhibitions in The Saatchi Gallery.
Our first Stop was the Gallery Mess Restaurant  . It's gorgeous in there, artwork all over the walls and giant trees with flowers and fairy lights on. I decided on the beetroot and goats cheese ravioli, it was absolutely delicious, I couldn't contain my excitement when I cut into the first piece and discovered the inside was bright pink and looked like cake!! Wowee!! We sipped our way through a bottle of prosecco and headed into the gallery.
Our favourite exhibition was called  'Little Black Jacket'. It's basically a photographic celebration of CoCo Chanel's classic little black jacket. The pictures are in a darkened room (hence dark pictures, sorry ladies) and range from children to celebrities, all modelling the black jacket. The best thing about the exhibition is that guests are invited to take home a choice of 3 prints for themselves (completely free), which are stacked up in the middle of the room. We are going to frame ours and hang them in our kitchen. 
I picked up an extra 3 prints for you lovelies, I'll be doing a give-away for those this week so keep your eyes peeled. I just thought they're such beautiful prints to frame for your bedroom walls, and what girl wouldn't like a bit of Chanel hanging up in her house, huh? 
The exhibition is on until the 28th of October, so if you get the chance, I'd definitely recommend it. 

After the gallery, we mooched around the French food market for a bit, can I just say, how scrummy do these cakes look?! Then we headed up Kings road for some window shopping, my boyfriend was a lil' sweety and treated me to a new coat from Anthropologie (my favourite shop ever). You cant really see it in the photo, but it's a nude pink kind of colour and has a big brown fur collar which goes all the way down the front of the coat. I'm totally in love with it. In fact I might even do a whole post on it later this week. I can't say I wasn't slightly worried about spilling my warm coffee cocktail down it though, I've been clumsier than usual this week (more on that later)!

Post warm coffee cocktails (which are, by the way, the most Christmassy thing ever), our walk to South Kensington tube station, of course turned into a bar crawl. I tried a few new cocktails, Cucumber sour, Crack Daddy, Passion Fruit Mojito. Cucumber sour is officially my new drink of choice. I don't know where it's been all my life. Seriously gals, you need to try it!! When we eventually did make it home, we cracked open a bottle of champagne, God knows I didn't need any more to drink, but we were just having such a great time! 

So yeah, sore head today. I think we're just going to head to the movies later to see Loopa. I think it's best I sit in a dark room when I feel like this! Have any of you seen Loopa yet?

What've you been up to this weekend? Have you ever had a great day/night in Chelsea? I want to hear about it!

    1. aw thanks beth! I know, bless him. I definitely will, it's just a case of being able to take a photo of it when it's light outside (#bloggerproblems). Oh they really are, it's a shame for people who don't live in London because it's totally free and gorgeous! xx
