Mum and I treated ourselves to a girly day in London last month and it was perfect! We started off with brunch at The Ivy Market Grill in Covent Garden, it was such lovely weather and we were lucky enough to be given a table outside which looked on to the main square – perfect for people watching!
The food was amazing. We had olives and truffle arincini as a starter. The olives were the biggest olives I had ever seen and were so tasty!
For my main, I had pancakes with bacon, stawberries and maple syrup – my absolute favourite brunch food!
And it wouldn’t be brunch without a glass of prosecco each..
After our brunch, we walked to the English National Opera House excited for the ballet. The ENO building is absolutely beautiful and we had great seats, right in the middle and near the front.
I couldn’t help but imagine all of the famous people in history that have sat in those boxes.
We saw Cinderella performed by the Australian National Ballet. The dancers were so incredibly talented and the show was really funny and surreal in places. Even the ugly sisters managed to look graceful and beautiful.
Ballet and brunch with my lovely mum was such a good way to spend a Saturday and is something we will definitely have to book to do again soon.
