Peggy Porschen - king's Road


We were super excited to head down to the King's Road in Chelsea to Peggy Porschen. Peggy Porchen is every influencer's dream with its instagramable pink and floral facade and gorgeous looking cakes.

On arrival, we did what most would and that was to pose for some pictures amongst the floral decor. Once inside we were overwhelmed by the colourful selection of cupcakes and cookies. We opted for two cupcakes from the Easter Collection, an Easter Egg Chocolate Cupcake and a Hoppy Bunny Carrot Cupcake.


Easter Egg Chocolate Cupcake: This chocolate sponge cupcake comes complete with a large swirl of chocolate buttercream topped with a speckled praline egg and fondant sugar flower and leaf.

Our Verdict - The cake had a generous helping of tasty chocolate buttercream, the cake was moist and chocolaty with a light fluffy texture, it was very moreish I enjoyed every single bite, although it was quite pricey, but the presentation and taste made it worth every penny.

Cost £5.50


Hoppy Bunny Carrot Cupcake: A carrot and walnut sponge cupcake, topped with a swirl of lemon cheese frosting, decorated with a fondant sugar bunny, mini carrot, flower blossom, leaf and a mini chocolate egg.

Our Verdict - Once again the sponge cupcake was moist, light and flavoursome as I would expect a carrot cake to be, there were delicate pieces of walnut and carrot throughout, the frosting was sweet with a subtle hint of lemon. The cupcake was absolutely delicious a real treat. Once again a little on the pricy side, but you are paying for a tasty quality seasonal treat. 

Cost £6.00


Easter Cookies: Shortbread vanilla cookies, decorated with a rolled sugar paste fondant with piped icing detailing.

Our Verdict - How could we resist these cute cookies, we purchased two as there was no way we were going to share one, each cookie cost £8.95 which is slightly more than we would have liked to pay, but we appreciated the hand-decorated detail and presentation, the actual cookie was thick crumbly and soft and tasted really good.

Cost £8.95

Overall - We would defiantly return to Peggy Porschen again, Peggy Porschen is an experience that everyone should have a least once in their lifetime.

Missing London Life

Like most, we are missing the normal life we once had, over the past few weeks, we have been taking long walks through London not only to stay active but also check in on each other and catch up, defiantly what we both have needed.

Walking through London now is a million miles away to what it once used to be, the streets are quiet and empty with very few people around, but it really gives you the chance to step back and take in what we have all been through refect and feel the gratitude of life and family.

We walked to Covent Garden the once vibrant market and busy streets were quite, we reminisced about the days we spent there and how much we missed the market the street entertainers and The Transport Museum (they do an awesome breakfast in their cafe).

Our hearts truly are humbled by what we have seen and felt over this past year, taking time to talk and reflect has been a medicine to our souls, we long for busy streets and happy faces, the joy of theatre and peaceful galleries filled with stunning art in all their glory. The smell of coffee and the hustle of the busy coffee shops. We miss London life and cannot wait to feel the joy that you will bring. For now, we will reflect and be patient on the return to life as we once knew it.

Our Visit To Covent Garden

Covent Garden

We decide to head to Covent garden we had spent a lot of time locally and was really looking forward to exploring a bit further afield now that some of the COVID restrictions had lifted.

Covent Garden looked very different, the usual hustle and bustle had gone, no street traders or entertainers insight, the cobbled streets seemed bare and for the first time ever I could see across the entire square. There were just small groups of people wandering around, probably wanting to get out and about like us, the shops were open but empty.

But we were so happy to hear that Milk Train in Covent Garden had re-opened so we made our way to get our long-awaited ice cream fix, the menu is currently limited, but there is still plenty to choose from. at the time we visited the seating area had been removed and the usual flower wall had gone, but it was nice to be back and experience the new normal.


We opted for a tasty vanilla ice cream with rainbow drops, chocolate sauce and of course sprinkles, It’s was nice to get out and experience the new normal pre-COVID.


Visiting Covent garden was strange after covid restrictions were lifted, it has to be one of the strangest experiences, but yet it filled us with a sense optimism of the return to normal life. We missed you Covent Garden and can't wait until you return to the hustle-bustle place that we all know and love.


Please note this post was our experience on 26 June 2020, we are defiantly looking forward to returning again.
