Breakfast at The Ivy Chelsea Garden

Carelle - The Ivy

This was yesterday's breakfast but I want it again today ... and probably tomorrow as well. Maybe even the day after. And.... you get the gist, it was just so good!!! A much deserved treat for Claire and I after getting up super early on our bank holiday Monday to visit the McQueen Exhibition at the V&A (if you haven't been to see Savage Beauty yet, I suggest you book tickets asap...it was really good....maybe lil frightening as well lol). And as you can see here, the early bird catches the fattest worm and in this case, turning up at the Ivy Chelsea Gardens for 9 am without any reservations meant that Claire I lucked out with lovely sofa-like seats facing the gardens and were allowed to stay put for 3 hours without much complaint (as long as we kept ordering fresh mint and green teas lol). What a wonderful start to the week right? Girly gossip, cheeky giggles and awkward photos ops ... the hardest bit of the day was deciding what to munch on and whether to be healthy (yeh right) or go full out. Well, what do you think happened...

Also, I had the chance to witness the master of "birds eye-food-iPhone shots" in action and even got her to teach me the tricks of the trade. Seriously, Claire takes such a good Insta food shot, it's unreal. Don't believe me, see for yourself

Is it sad that we both found it super fun taking pictures of our food? Actually don't answer that haha. Anyhoo, thinking this might be my new hangout spot for the summer that is due to come (any day now London please). Especially as the outside seating looks divine. Claire, next time burgers and cocktails outside in the sun ok? Whoever wants to join, see you there soon xo
