Last week I had a bit of a kerfuffle. I had two events in one night. I never usually do that, as I like to devote my whole evening and attention to one event, but after working out timings I figured, why not try it!
I started my evening at Lima Floral in Covent Garden eating the most delicious food and drinking the insanely alcoholic Pisco cocktails. Jasiminne and Suze were both there too, so it was lovely to have a quick catch up. We were seated in the bar downstairs, but unfortunately I'd left my DSLR at home due to all the travelling I had to do that day, and sadly my little GF5 just didn't like the low light so the photos didn't come out too great. Next time I'm just gonna suck it up and lug the DSLR around with me!
I had a really wonderful hour or so there though, which included tasting some very potent Pisco Sours, as well as straight Pisco, and the cream that goes on top of Pisco (which is more alcoholic than the actual drink!). We also had this delicious Ceviche dish...just look at all those colours!
I then dashed over to the Serpentine in Hyde Park to meet Henry, as I was dragging him along to the Visit Finland #WhiteNightLondon event, which was being held on the terrace of the Serpentine Lido at sunset!
We started with Finlandia vodka and tonic, and then had some delicious food; Traditional sausage with potato salad, salad, and asparagus with hollandaise sauce. There was also the fish option of salmon, but as you all know by now, I'm really not the biggest fan of salmon and red fish.
The theme for the event was white, I'm not the best with white - I tend to spill food and drink down myself whenever I wear white, so I wore my classic Breton striped dress which is my summer staple. I actually don't know what I'd do without this dress, I absolutely love it. It's perfect for work and perfect for smart/casual events after work.
The sunset was pretty beautiful, and the weather was just perfect! Look at that sky!
The event was to celebrate the Finnish White Nights, which happen during the summer months in Finland. Because Finland is so close to the arctic circle, the sun only sets very briefly before rising again, meaning it doesn't get dark throughout the summer.
We had such a lovely evening, with great food, some interesting Finnish music, and a really gorgeous setting! Then Henry and I got really excited when Hannah arrived...
