Muriels’ Kitchen

9 Dec

I had the opportunity to eat in at Muriel’s Kitchen which is located in Piccadilly Circus in London. Muriel’s Kitchen opened in 2011 and quickly became one of South Kensington’s most popular places to eat. “The concept was inspired by the owners true ‘no-nonsense’ Grandmother whose kitchen was the heart of her home. The restaurant continues to use her secret of recipes, which have been passed down from generation to generation and can still be enjoyed in every meal that is served on their menu. To pay tribute to her legacy, the logo is her real signature! Muriel’s has an amazing menu to choose from but I decided to have my favorite fish and chips. No one can’t come to London and not have fish and chips. The hostess, server and manager were simply delightful and attentive to each guest. The restaurant was filled with customers from the time I arrived until my departure and I can see why because they have some of the best food in London. I had a great time and even asked to take a few pictures. If your ever in London please make sure that you stop by and have some fish and chips or steak. I can assure you that on my next trip you will find me at Muriel’s.

Black Beauty Sensationnel Hair Awards 2013 in London

9 Dec

My travels continue! On November 29 I boarded my Delta flight for a nine hour flight to London which is the capital city of England and of the United Kingdom. It is the most populous region, urban zone and metropolitan area in the United Kingdom. I flew into London Heathrow Airport although there are several others to choose from this is the largest and it’s the only one that I know my way around. On my previous visit to London I became very familiar with their Tube which is one of their public transportation services. In my opinion the Tube and the Bus services are very easy to learn and will help in getting you around this beautiful city. Once I arrived it was Saturday early morning so after gathering my luggage I headed to exit that lead me to the Lube system so I could purchase a one day pass and start my ventures to the hotel.

The ride on the Tube was about thirty minutes to my hotel. I stayed at the Hilton London Metropole which also where the awards ceremony where I was presenting an award was being held. Upon arriving to the Hotel there were already many people waiting to check-in so I had a seat in the bar area and chatted with a few fellow guest. The concierge quickly found me to let me know that my room was ready and once I checked in and had my bags taken to my room I headed out to shop on Oxford Street and Piccadilly Circus.  If you have never visited London and plan to travel there someday you have got to go shopping in both areas. London has every store plus ones you can not even imagine all one a huge strip. London is actually preparing for Christmas so the streets are always jam-packed with people shopping up and down at all of the stores. I discovered these areas on my last trip to London a few years ago and I can tell you that I shopped so hard on the last trip until my luggage was overweight from clothes, shoes and souvenirs. I had a great time out shopping and of course I shopped every single day that I was there on this trip.

On Sunday I had the honor of attending the Black Beauty Sensationnel Hair Awards Ceremony where my sister and I were presenting the award for the braid stylist of the year on behalf of Jamaican Mango & Lime, the number one Loc & Twist Brand in the World. The evening started with a reception where the presenters, recipients and guest had an opportunity to meet and mingle with each other before the dinner and ceremony began. Shortly thereafter we presented the award and danced into the wee hours of the morning. I’m looking forward to my next trip to London in a few months!

My Traveling Passport

7 Oct

As long as I can remember from a little girl I have always had a love for traveling. I can recall patiently waiting for my Summer Vacation because I knew that I would either be visiting my Aunt Beverly in Richmond, VA or my Aunt Cynthia in Washington, D.C. My aunts would make my vacation memorable by ensuring that I was exposed to all of the landmarks, museums and cultural inheritance during my early years. I made a decision a few years ago to travel throughout the U.S. and abroad. To date I have traveled to many places throughout the states and abroad to England, Jamaica, Mexico, Bahamas and Paris.  I have done a lot of traveling within the last two years and I am presently working towards adding new destinations to my list. Come along with me and experience the World through my eyes as I take this quest to fill my passport.
