London Date Idea – Pennethorne Cafe Somerset House

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

I have found a gem of a place for an ideal date in London.

Set in the ‘New Wing’ of beautiful Somerset House, Pennethorne Café Bar is sleek yet comfy, trendy but non pretentious and offers delicious food without a hefty price tag.

The Café itself is beautiful and spacious and it wasn’t long before we were greeted by a relaxed and friendly waiter who found us a perfect spot for an evening of delicious food, good wine and hopefully on your date – great company!

Pennethornes – the perfect setting for a low key date in London

Unlike most venues, the layout of Pennthornes means you can sit across from one another or side by side. This for me was a real winning factor for a date. If the date is going well you may find your date sliding over to you (hello!) to create a more intimate setting but equally for a first date there is plenty of room to spread out.

Small plates – the answer to the ‘first date food’ quandary

The food is served in small plates which as any woman knows, is perfect for those initial dates. Yes we may well love our food but that doesn’t mean we want to shovel it down in front of our date!

I remember my first date with Christian, we went to an Italian and after the starter, thanks to nerves, I was stuffed. I had to wade my way through a massive bowl of spaghetti, slurping as I went! Small plates are ideal for a date. You can order a selection of things to graze on, it provides a perfect talking point and isn’t crazy expensive.

Plenty of fresh and delicious goodies on offer

Specialist breads and pastries are made in house and would be the perfect accompaniment to an artesian coffee for a daytime date after a mooch along the Southbank. Or why not check out what’s going on at Somerset House itself? An arts and cultural hub, it has an ever changing exciting calendar of events.

Great service

Our waiter for the night was Freddie and he was brilliant. Despite the fact every time he came over to take our order we were still deep in conversation and had yet to even take a peek there was no eye rolling! He kept the reasonably prices Riesling wine flowing (they also have small carafes of wine available – a nice touch), the food coming and looked after us very well. When you’re on a date you want everything to run smooth, it’s hard enough getting the conversation going without having to flag the waiter down every 10 minutes, none of that at Pennethornes, they are on the ball without being imposing. We never felt rushed.

We didn’t have cocktails but I can safely say they looked amazing! A quick look at the drink menu tells me next time I’m there I’ll be ordering a Nutty Martini – though perhaps the name would scare off any ‘potential suitors’ :-D

My dates for the night!

My dates for the night!

Sharing a selection of meats and cheeses with scrumptious homemade bread the nigt disappeared in a haze of good food, good wine and good conversation. What more could you want for a date?

Dating in 2015 – Time Out Global Dating Survey Results

Timeout_global_dating_survey
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

The results are in from the Time Out Global Dating Survey 2015 and some of the results may surprise you………

Here’s s run down of some of the facts and figures of dating across the world in 2015:

It takes an average of 2-3 minutes into a date to decide whether you want a second date.

Oh crikey, better make that first impression count, no pressure then!

 

How_long_does_a_typical_date_last_image

More than half of my fellow Brits research their date online before meeting.

This might be a good time to do a quick Google of yourself and watch in horror as you realise you can’t delete that geeky picture of yourself in the local newspaper from 8 years ago – where did that come from?! Cringe.

Time Out Dating Survey 5

Are you surprised to hear those working in banking and the financial sector and what women are looking for?

Luckily for the creative sorts of the UK 13% of women love a guy in a creative job and similar goes for girls working in design and fashion……

Time Out Dating Survey 4

Finally the night ends with 15% of you saying ‘you’re lovely but lets just be friends’ that ol’ chestnut!

21% of you feel thoroughly awkward, 40% ending in a second date and interestingly 20% of your dates end in nudity! ;)

How Dates End

 

One thing is for sure, by the looks of this there is no such thing as an average date and you never know how it might end. So put your best smile on, remember to dress to impress (you have just a few minutes after all, ek!) and have some fun!

Should You Go on a Second Date?

should_i_go_on_a_second_date_couple_walking_in_love
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

 

 At my dating agency Mutual Attraction the same question is cropping up over and over:

“We had a good first date but I’m not sure there was a spark, should I see them again?”

My response is always the same. Can you answer yes to any of these:

  • Did they make you laugh and smile?
  • Did you find them interesting?
  • Were they polite, friendly and make you feel at ease?
  • Did they take the time to ask you questions and get to know you?
  • Did you have fun?

Then here’s why you should say YES to a second date

That ‘spark’, ‘zing’ or ‘chemistry’ – whatever you want to call it, isn’t always instant. In fact in a lot of happy couples it’s not there at all initially but instead it grows.

Remember the married couple I met at the My Single Friend party who almost never got past date 1 because he didn’t feel the ‘spark’?

We have become so obsessed with needing that ‘wham love has just hit me in the face’ moment that we rule out people who make us laugh, smile and who we have fun with purely because we aren’t floored by them instantly.

Love DOES happen like the movies – most people aren’t swept away straight away!

They say love doesn’t happen like it does in the movies but sure it does.

What’s the main storyline in chick flicks these days? A girl and guy thrown together much to their disdain, they don’t get on or are just friends, they spend time together and something happens, they start to become more fond of one another, to genuinely care for them, to see them in a different light. Of course then they have to have a massive falling out before declaring love for one another but hopefully you can skip that part :)

Give people a chance

Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying you should go on a second date with everyone you meet. Sometimes you just know they aren’t the one for you – maybe you have too different values or they were simply an ass on the date (we’ve all been there right?!).

But next time you have a date where you enjoy yourself, say yes to a second date even if that ‘spark’ isn’t there yet. It CAN grow and it DOES. You owe it to yourself to explore opportunities with people you have fun with.

should_you_go_on_a_second_date_true_love

After all, isn’t it hard enough these days simply meeting someone new, on your wavelength you have fun with? Go with it and give love a chance…. You never know what will happen!

I’m Engaged!!

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

It’s finally happened…..Christian popped the question and we’re engaged!

Last week was my 31st birthday so my other half Christian and I booked ourselves into a romantic hotel in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds.

We have been together a little over 3 years and whilst I had hoped he might pop the question someday soon, he was giving nothing away!

After breakfast last Saturday it was time to don the wellies and set off on a 4 hour walk through the picturesque countryside, stopping off en route to enjoy the cold but welcomed sunshine.

This will forever be my favourite picture

Not because I look like the Michelin man i’m so wrapped up (!!) but because little did I know that Christian would be asking me to marry him in just a few short hours. Actually he was contemplating doing it as this was taken but he decided to wait – I wondered why he went a little weird :)

After lunch at a gorgeous pub in the village of Burford we took a cab back to our 600 year old inn The Old Swan and Minster Mill. Christian ran me a bath so I could defrost after our long walk and I lay relaxing thinking what a fantastic weekend it had been so far. Christian said he was going to warm my dressing gown on the radiator for when I was ready to get out. He then came in the bathroom, knelt down next to me and told me how much he loved me. He gave me a kiss and said  “I’m on my knees and I want to marry you”.

The next second a ring appeared!

I burst out crying!

Don’t worry – i’m not in the bath in this photo hehe ;)

I always had this image that I would be refined but that all went out the window! I sobbed like a child and couldn’t stop shaking for around 2 hours after! We sat on the bed excitedly chatting for the next few hours drinking champagne. It was a moment I want to remember for the rest of my life – just the 2 of us excitedly planning the future.

Of course on a special occasion like this we needed to celebrate…..

Your happily ever after
Right now I’m on cloud nine but I also know how lucky I am.

5 years ago I was on a plane back from Hong Kong heartbroken that my then boyfriend had left me for another women leaving me alone in the City. It was a rough ride getting over that. Of course, I did eventually and went on to meet the man who is my best friend and world and it WILL happen for you too.

Stay open to love, stay open to opportunities to embrace and meet new people and above all, be happy.

Chocolate Tour – The Perfect Date Idea!

chocolate_ecstacy_tour
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

What can you do to make your date extra special, sweet and memorable? Take them on a chocolate tour of course!

I have some serious sugar loving teeth (I know I know it’s the demon) so when the chance came to go on a 3 hour chocolate tour with Chocolate Ecstasy I thought I had died and gone to chocaholic heaven*.

The 3 hour tour started by meeting at 10am (on a Saturday) outside Sketch on Conduit Street. It was a cold morning, bitter, so of course I forgot my hat AND gloves. I blamed Christian, it was definitely his fault. A quick dash to accessorize and we were rocking up to Sketch on time, excited and me a bit too snug but I daren’t say anything after C forked out for the third pair of gloves for me this side of Christmas. :lol:

IMG_4390

It was 1 degree outside, bit nippy but who the heck cares “Give me Chocolate”!

Our tour guide for the day Kirsty signed us in. She is probably one of the most likeable and sweet girls i’ve ever met and she knows her milk tray from her Green and Blacks. Not that there were any milk tray on this tour. Oh no, this was about the real good stuff. After we were all signed in we headed into the parlour at Sketch where an area at the back was nicely set up. I had never been in here and it was a beautiful place to stop for pastries, breakfast or coffee. Definitely recommend. We all introduced ourselves and Kirsty gave us some background info on chocolate, how it’s made etc.

Our first chocolate of the day was a delicious, rich hot chocolate with froth. Soooo good!

sketch_hot_chocolate

 

It was served with a small apple pastry which was as equally divine and lovely and warm and fresh. We then did a bit of tasting of chocolate slabs and Kirsty explained what to look out for such as a good ‘crack’ when you break the chocolate. It was all very cosy and lovely in Sketch and we had a quick toilet stop in the award winning loos. It took me back to a date I had here years ago, try working out these loos when you’ve had one too many to drink ;)

sketh_toilets

A selfie in the toilets? We’re a class act!

toilets_at_sketch

 

It was then onto our first chocolate shop which was quite far away – next door! The East India Company has some of the most gorgeous tea sets. The type you would love but know you would smash in 2 seconds flat! Here we tried lots of different chocolates – white, dark, flavoured all of which were very different. Some were lovely and others not so much but part of the fun is just having a little sample. We were a small group of around 12 and it was amusing watching every ones faces. it’s true what they say ” one persons chocolate nightmare is another’s dream”**

east_india_company_chocolate

After a little while looking around the shop (we got 10% discount at all the shops we visited) it was onto the next. Good ol Charbonnel et Walker, home to the famous champagne pink truffle. I have been lucky enough to have these before and they’re delicious, if a little too strong for me but it was lovly to taste one again. They had a great display for Valentines day, did you know these truffles alone make up for 50% of what Charbonnel et Walker sell? Kirsty gave us the background to the shop, all very interesting.

charbonne_walker_valentines_day

charbonnel_walker_chocolates

 

Next it was on to Prestat. I’ve never been in here and this one was a tiny but cosy shop (great for a date – no excuse needed to casually drape your arm around their shoulder!). A bit of background info on the shop and we were in selecting our 2 truffles which again were delicious, so much so we brought some to take home! I probably haven’t mentioned that much chocolate tasting but I can assure you that you have plenty, so much so that by this point I was basically waving the white flag. The chocolate we tasted is all very high quality and rich so it’s not like munching your way through a toblerone!

prestat

Now it was time for a bit of a walk over to Soho for the final stop of the day, down past Burlington arcade and into a shop called paul a young which had a very tempting large table of chocolates right in front of us. They looked amazing! A chocolatier Paul Young has won all the top gongs for chocolate and we could hear it being made on site downstairs. I opted for a blood orange chocolate and it was delicious…I gave the marmite one a miss ;) The one that was called Yorkshire tea and biscuits definitely looked good!

paulayoung_chocolates

Just over 3 hours had passed now and I was well and truly chocolated out!

It was such a great morning, interesting fun and I came away thinking what a perfect date idea it is. There’s something to focus on and keep you chatting, there’s little pressure on you both so you can get to know one another and have some fun – oh and taste a lot of chocolate too. Could there be a better date?!

Our tour was with Chocolate Ecstasy and I would definitely recommend them, they knew their stuff, were lovely and made it a really enjoyable experience.

Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to crawl under the duvet and have sweet dreams of salted caramel chocolates…..

*Not to be mistaken with chocoholics anonymous which is a whole different ball game ;)

** I’m actually the only person to have ever said that, I fibbed!

Matthew Hussey Live at the 02 Review

matthew_hussey_live_02
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

What happens when you put 1500 single women in one room?

A lot of dancing it turns out, that and massaging one another’s shoulders! But before any of you single guys go getting any ideas of gate crashing (I know what you’re thinking, ‘single women massaging one another – yes please’!) this event was solely for women.

So where was I? At the Matthew Hussey Live ‘Get The Guy’ event in Indigo, the 02.

I have followed him online for some time and I have to take my cap off to him. At just 27 he has built a brand people twice his age would kill for. He has amassed thousands of followers all over the world, has a best selling book under his belt, is on TV screens all over America and is a matchmaker on Eva Longoria’s TV programme.

Matthew Hussey Live at the 02

The day started off a little confusingly. I was under strict instruction’s to be there by 10am, which I have to tell you, on a Saturday morning after a long ass week at work felt very early. Imagine my grumpiness then, when we arrived to find the VIP box office wasn’t open yet and in fact the meet and greet with the main man himself didn’t start until 11am…that’s a whole extra hour in bed I missed out on! Don’t come between a girl and her beauty sleep ;) This slightly chaotic organisation continued throughout the day but it didn’t really matter.

To pass the time a strong cuppa and some good stuff for my body was needed and fortunately there was an All Bar One serving breakfast.

Matthew Hussey Mania

At 11am I made my way to the VIP meet and greet which was extra in the cost of the ticket (though I kindly got given mine complimentary to check it out). This was where I first stumbled across ‘Matthew Hussey mania’. Women scrambling to talk to him. Well I assume it was him. There was so many people around him it was like bees round a honey pot. With not a chance of getting near him I instead opted to find friends who had already taken their seat in the venue for the 12pm start.

matthew_hussey_is_in_there_somewhere

Matthew Hussey at the Meet and Greet

Dotted around in pink t-shirts were Matthew’s team helping people, encouraging everyone to talk to one another and generally being lovely. We found out after most of them had been on a retreat he hosts and that naturally gets plugged quite a lot through the day though having looked it up, it looks a worthwhile and interesting 5 days. They told us there would be no breaks throughout the day….no breaks?! In the style of life coach Tony Robbins the day would be fully immersive. I suppose the logistics of all those women going to the loo at the same time might cause the venue to break  :-)

The main issue with not having any breaks was that the event went on from 12-7:30pm. That’s a long time to go without eating if you weren’t aware there would be no pause. If you plan on going to the event – take snacks!

view_from_balcony_indigo

View from the balcony – getting busy!

When I popped to get some food I saw approximately 300 women in line waiting to collect their tickets. Because of this it didn’t kick off till gone 12.30 but by then even I was at fever pitch excited and i’m not a single woman eagerly awaiting his advice! There was a real buzz in the air….and then Matthews dad came on. I’m sure he’s lovely and the older members of the crowd were practically salivating but how to bring a hyped up crowd down in 60 seconds! 15 minutes later he was still going on about, well, im not sure. Eventually on Matthew came and now I could see why there were 1500 women in the room…

matthew hussey review

 

matthew_hussey_live_02

 

He’s a Hot, Flirty, Buff, Sex God of a Man

He’s a charmer. One of those men who just knows what to say. And he’s funny too.

Like my matchmaking idol Paul Carrick Brunson, Matthew Hussey has a way of keeping people engaged, enthralled and laughing. It makes for a lethal and infectious combination. So much so that despite there being no practical advice for at least the first 2 hours but who the heck cares?! We were all having too much of a good time and it certainly set the scene and made you feel like he knew you and knew what you were going through dealing with those troublesome men ;)

At one point he got 2 women on the stage and practised ‘the eyes’ on them. In other words, making eye contact. When he did it I thought several of the women were going to pass out! As the day went on we learnt about making ourselves approachable so guys feel they can come up to us, text messaging responses and general dating tips. Nothing was rocket science but the way he presented the information made it fun and relatable.

I didn’t agree with everything. When he told us to always speak on the phone to men we’ve met online before agreeing to a date I had to disagree. In theory that works but not in practise. I know first hand from my own dating experiences and from clients at my dating agency, Mutual Attraction, that men just aren’t great on the phone – especially when they don’t know you. Sure the Matthew Husseys of the world are dynamic and full of banter on the phone but your average man? Not so much. Judging someone from a phone call is risky business.

It’s Very ‘American’

Matthew is British but has been working in the States for some time and boy did that show – what with getting up and dancing and rubbing one another shoulders to massage them I found it all a little cheesy, and this coming from the girl who loves Disney World! He mentioned at one point that many of us don’t let go and dance rigidly (this is when we were all up on our feet), and those people who do that are often the same in their dating life – rigid and take themselves too seriously. Well I must be one miserable mother fu***er then because dancing widely in a room of strangers just isn’t my thing. Fortunately, I’m ok with that. :lol:

By 5pm I had a numb bum and decided to make my exit but had to do the shuffle of shame along the row. I practically crawled out on my hands and knees to the glaring eyes of his supporters.  It had started getting a bit ‘culty’ with women from his retreat getting up and doing a wiggle dance in their matching ‘Matthew Hussey’ tshirts’. Talking to some of the women made me a bit on edge. I make no exaggeration when I say some of these women were obsessed with Matthew, a quick google of his name proves the point. Begin typing his name and the first search term that pops up is ‘Matthew Hussey wife?’….need I say more? Oh and a woman a few rows back kept shouting ‘we love you Matthew’.

Lifestyle Retreat

Whilst I left early some friends didn’t and the event wrapped up at 7.30pm after a hard sell for his Lifestyle Retreat. I am sure there will have been many women sign up and if it helps them on their dating journey? Then it will be worth every penny. In fact it has some great reviews online.

Would I recommend going to see Matthew Hussey live? Absolutely, it was an enjoyable day and if anything – he’s very easy on the eye ;)

Happy dating

Show Someone You Love Them – Sainsburys Magazine

show_someone_you_love_them
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

With Valentine’s day fast approaching there’s no better time than to turn your thoughts to love.

If you’re lucky enough to be in a relationship with someone you love and whom loves you back (and trust me, you are lucky) then ask yourself ‘how can I show this person how much they mean to me today and everyday?’

Those of you who know my other half Christian know that he’s not one for big romantic gestures. In fact, if I were on the receiving end of one I’d probably be thinking what has he done now?!  :-P

I feel loved every single day, despite the lack of flowers and love letters and expensive trips to Paris (though if you’re reading this C I can picture myself wearing a beret and croissant in hand!). For me, love has always been about those little things in day to day life that are small gestures but mean so much. Like when I get brought breakfast in bed of a weekend, or I come home after a long day and dinner is cooking, or he sits and listens to me whilst I offload and gives me a big cuddle. It’s when he takes the bins out because he knows I hate it or when he realises my hairdryer is breaking and I get one in the post the next day.

The little gestures of love go a long way and that’s exactly what I talk about in this months Sainsbury’s Magazine – 50 ways to show someone you love them.

show_someone_you_love_then

 

Whether you believe in celebrating Valentines day doesn’t matter, showing someone you love them everyday is far more important.

Much love, happiness and gratitude.
