Ladies who Brunch

Valentina’s favourite meal of the day is breakfast.

I foolishly introduced her to Granger & Co in Notting Hill a couple of years ago.

Why foolish, you ask?

Because now she doesn’t want to go anywhere else!

She dragged me out of bed (bouncing on the end of it until I gave in) and insisted we get our butts to Granger. With the promise of an iced latte, how could I possibly refuse?

We took my rather snap happy gent with us.

He and Val get on like a house on fire, which is a little bit lovely!

A breakfast of various eggs began.

Full Aussie breakfast for him.

Scramble for her.

And broken eggs with ricotta & spinach for me.

(I think I won!)

A sprinkle of salt…

… and we devoured the lot!

Just the fuel we needed for a morning of trinket hunting in Portobello market.

I am ALL about the marriage of comfort and style, so it goes without saying that I love this outfit!

Topshop playsuit // Jimmy Choo bag // Jimmy Choo sunnies // French Sole boaters

Handy if you need to disappear, too.

We ducked and weaved through the market.

Searching for home-wares, jewels and bargains.

Before moving on to some more… mainstream offerings.

Don’t worry, I wont show you what we got up to in Agent P!

Let’s just say that V will be heading back to a very happy boyfriend in Sweden, and I did find a little treat in the sales.

Just a short post today. I’m heading to the country now, my sister’s getting married this weekend and I can’t wait to get home and help with the decorations!

Have you seen these?

  • This looks amazing! I’m still yet to try Granger and Co and their amazing pancakes! Also, your playsuit is so gorgeous Rosie!! πŸ™‚

  • Aw got to love a bit of shopping around Portobello market! Although if you’re up for a bit of bargain hunting, I’d suggest having a poke around some of the charity shops in the area- you’re bound to find something lovely at a steal!


    • Ooo that’s such a great tip. I’ve never thought about going around the charity shops around Portobello. Thanks for sharing.

      • No problem Beth =) Best two deals so far were a lovely crew jacket for Β£20 and a pair of new looking Prada’s for Β£45! Good luck! xx

  • The slow pace

    A country Summer wedding! That’s better than those eggs! (and that’s sayin a lot!) πŸ™‚ Have the loveliest time!

  • Your Mister seems absolutely lovely! Looks like you and V had a great time – it’s amazing when you find friendships so true that no matter the distance in time or miles, it lasts xx

  • I am with V on this one, breakfast is definitely my fave meal of the day.
    My sister and I are going to attempt your gluten free bread tomorrow, hopefully will go nicely with scrambled eggs or a big hunk of peanut butter!

  • Someone once told me that the people who love us capture our best moments on camera, and that we take the best photos of the people we love.

    In short… we can see how crazy your mystery guy is about you πŸ™‚ all looks lovely!! xxx

      he must also be crazy about those eggs then…
      love the photos too! i might have just blown my wages on AP though. xx

  • Pardon my ignorance but is an Aussie brekkie a healthier version of an English? Avocado instead of mushrooms, beans and pudding?

    Love the play suit.

    Great little playsuit, I hope your sister has a wonderful wedding!

  • Ellen Alexandra

    Im taking my muma to visit London in a couple of weeks time, and portobello market is definitely on the list! her sort of place πŸ™‚ I was wondering what day do you recommend going? I don’t know whether it closes down or has certain days which are best for trinket hunting? thanks for the inspiration Rosie!


    • Ellie McCarthy

      Hi Ellen, Portobello native here. The Saturday is the main day with all of the stalls out in full force but the crowds are nuts. If you’re happy to go at a slow pace and move leisurely with the cluster of people then go the Saturday, but if you want a bit of breathing space and less pressure to move along, definitely go on a Friday! Not as many stalls but still plenty to see and do without the stress πŸ™‚

      • Ellen Alexandra

        Great thank you so much for the tips Ellie! will definitely be dedicating a leisurely day to some serious stall rifling and hopefully finding a beaut spot for something to munch πŸ˜€ looking forward to it! x

  • Shade of Red Blog

    Congratulations to your sister, Rosie! How exciting!

  • I really want to hit Portobello Market. I think that if/when I ever get my own place, I’ll be entirely furnishing it from there! Those cushions are divine xx

    Hi Rosie, I love your blog. Never miss a post but can you sort out a mobile version pretty please! Not sure if it’s just me, but I cannot view your whole posts on my bloglovin’ app so I have to go to the desktop site on my phone which has super annoying popup ads. Today I have a Smashbox banner following my every move! It’s ruining all the gorgeous pictures and lovely words you’ve written πŸ™

  • Brunching like a boss Rosie! Valentina knows what’s what πŸ™‚

    Have a lovely weekend

    Hi Rosie, I just wanted to say I love your blog. As a 46 year old mother of two (20 and 21), I love that your blog is always positive. Raising children is not always easy, and what they see out there on the internet can be quite scary and negative. It’s really nice (as a mom) to see people exuding maturity, gracefulness and positive attitudes. I’ve read your blog for some time now, and it ultimately inspired me to do my own. So, thank you for all of that. Well done. πŸ™‚

  • The breakfasts look amazing. I love your playsuit & was looking at it in Topshop the other day. Have fun at your sisters wedding – guessing you will be bridesmaid!!

    Have a great weekend!

    Hugs xoxo

  • Georgie Bratt

    You both look gorgeous! Adore Valentina’s top – don’t suppose you know where it is from?! xx

  • I have tan envy over here in the States!

  • I love your insight into the fun things to do in Notting Hill! Hooray for the AP sale, and congratulations to your sis for this weekend! Hope your clan has a blast at the wedding!
