It has been a while since Pooja and I went on a date and what better way to do it than to go for brunch. She’s a big fan of brunch and when I mean fan she’s obsessed, she is o-b-s-e-s-s-e-d!! If any of you ever need help finding good brunch places-ASK POOJA! I don’t know why she hasn’t just started a blog entirely for brunch places in London(*hint hint Pooj*)
This year I’m literally on a mission to explore more of London and hence why I’ll be blogging a lot more and maybe, later on, start daily vlogs. But again, we shall see don’t hold me to this lol! Pooja and I went to the Palm Vaults, which is a cute little vegan-friendly cafe in Hackney. I ordered a rose hot chocolate, the halloumi burger(this is definitely a must-have!) and we had the chocolate vegan cake for dessert. Oh-my-good-god this cake was absolutely beautiful in every way! The icing was so soft and delicate that it just melted in your mouth…mmmm(reminiscing about it already). If any of you haven’t been you should definitely go! It’s a very popular Instagram spot and you will find yourself amongst so many other social media influencers.
After brunch, we headed to The Design Museum. There was an exhibition on about “Azzedine Alaïa: The Couturier”. If you’ve never seen any of his couture pieces you’re missing out! He believed in creating beautiful pieces that ‘focused solely on the demands of perfecting his vision, not on market demands’, which made him stand out from the rest! You’ve probably seen some of the greats wearing his pieces from Tina Turner to Naomi Campbell. His clothes and haute couture collections definitely pushed the boundaries! Check out the pictures in the slideshow for some of his beautiful pieces.
One thing I took from the exhibition is, you need to do what you want in your own time, as long as you believe in yourself you can make anything happen! If, you’re passionate about something-pursue it no matter how long it’s going to take. Comparing yourself to someone else is not going to help. Instead, believe in yourself and what you put out there.
Do whatever it is with passion and love.
Don’t ever give up!

When I don’t want something
I don’t make it”
