Last weekend

I started the weekend with a lovely brunch with Little Legs at Caravan in King's Cross. Think it's my new favourite breakfast spot, and the spread was hard to forget, with the side order of bacon being the icing on the cake. We got there about 10.30am and got a table no probs, but by 11am the place was heaving and people were queuing out of the door. For Caravan at its best, you should be an early bird. A just-in report from Little Legs on this week's evening visit heaps more praise on the place, making it a restaurant for all occasions.

A mini trip to a flea market sale saw me buying these Green candle sticks for a mere £1 (pic coming later). Think the addition of some pink candles will make the perfect pairing, and these look to be just the right shade.

Took advantage of Bob's last trip to France to put in a pharmacy order, which also signalled the start of my Christmas shopping. Felt quite smug surveying my goodies, especially my industrial quantity of Bioderma Crealine H2O Micelle Solution which is simply the best eye-makeup remover. My new rule not to start a new product before I've finished the old one is proving hard when it comes to this Masque Apaisant by Bioderma, but I'm trying to stay strong.

A visit to friends in Stock Newington saw us trying the amazing pizza at Il Bacio - wish I'd had more time to explore the large number of vintage shops in the 'hood - looked like there were excellent offerings! Any tips from London-based readers on where to try?

After a hard week, I had one goal in mind, and that was to find a pair of pyjamas to curl up in on the sofa. I have been hankering after a pair of the old-fashioned button-up style since I did this post. On my way back from work on Friday evening, I swung by TKMaxx, and scored myself this pair for £16.99, in 100% brushed cotton. I also got two Bahoma scented candles for £6.99 each. Mission accomplished.
