Mary, this one is for you. Although I've not got much to update you on!
END OF EXAMS
Exams finished, the last one was GV227 - the politics of economic policy, anyway I don't think it went that well but my memory of the exam is blurred due to the drinking that happened after. I think I had 6 drinks outside the tuns with Emma to start my celebrations. It was a lovely lovely afternoon in the sun. Unfortunately I got tipsy amazingly fast and ended up in bed come time the afternoon. I woke up a few hours later with the worst handover of my life. Not sure how but in my state of inebriation I managed to go to topshop and pick out a few things. They're okay...
RAJA... no more
A fine and distinguished exam beard, it was eventually lost to the razor.
OMG last night I went to this restaurant in Pimlico / Victoria called Preto. Its a Brazilian Churrascaria place. You just grab a plate go to the (really amazing) salad and traditional brazilian sides buffet to get some battered banana, onion rings and really amazing salads then wait at your table for the meat to start coming. The waiters constantly bring you massive skewers of all kinds of beef steaks, chicken, pork (but no one bothers with pork) and CHICKEN HEARTS which they carve onto your plate at your table. My favourite was the red and bloody garlicky beef. I've never had such good steak. Its all you can eat! I spent £38, lots and lots of money but I did share a decent bottle of red and had a pina colada to finish!
Then we went back and had champagne. It was nice!
COME HERE NOW
Katie! Clare! Tron! Livia! - This week and weekend please I'm here and I would love to entertain. (mary when you've finished exams!!!!)
Maybe I'll even take you to to get a cocktail in a teacup. My sister recommended this bar on Charlotte Street called Bourne and Hollingsworth. So when Sophie and some SAASY people were in London we decided to try it. It's in a basement and is decorated kind of 1940s living room / quaint tearoom - it's all floral wallpaper, white tablecloths, I even saw a lace doily! The bar is a wooden serving hatch and have amazing cocktails served in teacups, beautiful old fashioned champagne glasses and even old jars! The music was awesome on my visit 60s, 70s, 80s, pop, disco, anything.
I like to post pictures of food. I think I like cooking and looking more than eating. I just can't decide what the best thing about food is. I've been eating many takeouts recently BUT my new favourite super quick thing to cook is anything teriyaki! Chicken, beef and TUNA STEAK. so tasty. best with rice. after marinating I boil the marinade down so it's thick and sticky, then pour it over the meat and rice. heaven. ratio of mirin/cooking rice wine:soy sauce:brown sugar = 2:2:1 plus crushed garlic cloves, tiny bit of grated ginger, maybe a bit of honey.
It's become a thing that Aaron gets mentioned in every post now. So I'd like to say that after a week of the slim fast plan he lost 4 Kilos. a week of sensible meals later he looks even thinner. IT WORKS. Unfortunately he's just gone back to Canada (boooo) and is about to start a trading internship at CIBC. Meaning, he'll have to mix it at home and take it to work in a sports bottle and pretend its a protein shake, in order to fit in with the macho traders. Good luck Aaron!! We miss you already and remember WWTD!?
I am Alice. I am a student at LSE. However, I do like cupcakes, purikura, hot chocolate, flowers, going out to eat, everything in Liberty and taking pictures of stupid outfits I try on.
I plan to a) get a job that pays me lots and b)leave it to set up a bookshop/gallery/tea room/bar.
Right now I really need the big grey fur hat with rabbit ears I saw in topshop.
