This weekend I ventured south of the river to the famous Southbank food market. It was a casual afternoon catch-up with my friend Yasmin. We both love food and so it seemed the perfect place to spend our Saturday.
Yasmin, a frequent visitor darted straight towards the ‘Frenchie’ duck confit burger stand whilst I wondered around the various food stalls, all offering signature dishes from several different countries and cultures. After a mouth watering half an hour I made my decision and went for a Moroccan harissa chicken wrap with salad and mint sauce. YUM, It was divine!
Yasmin and I took our seats on the steps leading up to the balcony of the Southbank centre, giving us an overview of the entire market….and letting us point out which stall we should head to next.
Throughout the afternoon we went on to try Italian Cannoli, British free-range chicken sausages and (my highlight) the latest pastry phenomenon….THE CRO-NUT. Oh my! Possibly the best thing I’ve ever tasted, the cro-nut (half croissant half donut) was to die for! I chose to have one topped with melted marshmallow and nutella and it was honestly a taste of heaven.
We topped all our various nibbles off with (several) drinks, for me – bucks fizz and Yasmin – bubbles topped with apricot schnapps.
We spent our afternoon laughing, eating, drinking and at one point even dancing (the team from the Southbank centre were teaching passers by a dance to WAM-Wake Me Up) we got our groove on and joined in!
The sun was shining but there was still the occasional chill in the air so I settled on wearing a layered outfit so I could peel them off whenever the sun came out shining.
I adore this skirt, It’s been in my wardrobe for the past couple of years, it was a steal at £15.99 from H&M! Its so cute and the laser cut detail adds a hint of playfulness to the dark tone. It comes up quite high wasted giving a great silhouette. I wanted to brighten the outfit up slightly so I went with a flouncy blouse from Mint Velvet which has sketch like criss-crosses in black and hot pick. Whens the clouds overshadowed the sun I popped on my French Connection thick knit jumper and by Boutique by Jaeger jacket. I topped it all off with silver jewellery and my go-too Chelsea boots from H by Hudson….so comfy!
