BURGER OF THE MONTH: ICHIBUNS

It’s been a while since we have found a great new burger in London worth writing about but the time has come in the form of Ichibuns! Ichibuns is a Japanese restaurant next to the W Hotel in Chinatown. Its a super cool restaurant specialising in Japanese Wagyu beef, so they feature beef in a lot of their food (including their Cheeseburger Spring Rolls – more on that later). The menu is not only beef though, they also have fresh sushi, noodle dishes, steamed buns, gyoza etc so there is something for everyone! The sushi looks really good but we were there to try the famous Wagyu beef!

Ichibuns also has a cocktail menu with unique yummy cocktails all served in super cute Boba cups! We had the Yuzu & Grapefruit Collins and the Grape Caipiroska – we had never seen a grape flavoured Caipiroska before and it was too good, with fresh grapes and grapefruit juice! Now onto the food, a friend recommended for us to try the Cheeseburger Spring Rolls and the Ichibuns Burger, so we ordered both, as well as the Wagyu beef steamed buns. We were very intrigued about the Cheeseburger Spring Rolls and they were everything we were expecting and more! Sadly we didn’t take any pics as they were devoured instantly but they are spring rolls with Wagyu burger beef inside, served with burger sauce – they are life changing! The steamed buns were okay, they were closed buns with only beef inside and not very much of it, so it was mainly bun – good but could have been better!

Now onto the burger… its a big statement but its definitely the cheesiest and dirtiest burger we have ever had! It has about three generous layers of cheese in it, one 30 day aged Wagyu beef patty, caramelised onion and burger sauce . The burger didn’t come with any salad inside but it was all so moist that it didn’t need anything else. The bun was a super soft brioche style bun and the meat was super soft too, as well as being full of flavour. The fries were also great, they were thinner than a typical fry so were very light but delish – on the whole it was a big thumbs up from us!

Have you been to Ichibuns?

SUMMER IN THE CITY

Whenever we are asked to describe our styles…  the one phrase we continue to use is ‘same, but different’ and we definitely think that phrase perfectly describes our outfits on our latest catch up. Most days we’re dressed practically the same and some days complete opposite, but that’s the fun of fashion and expressing your style!

We definitely share the LOVE for colour this season. We are especially feeling super girlie at the moment and crushing on pinks – Miranda’s to-die-for pastel pink jacket has been a go-to this season paired with a slogan tee, mom jeans and KILLER boots. Sid wearing some our all the time favourite trends in one… stripes and denim paired with a beret (thank you universe for hats on bad hair days!).

Top: Zara
Trousers: Zara
Backpack: Brandy Melville

SHOOTING WITH CASHMERE

A while ago we were contacted by the lovely Urenna, of Cashmere App (www.cashmereapp.co.uk) who asked if we wanted to do a shoot and interview for the app, we checked it out and thought it was an awesome idea so we jumped at the chance! The app is a luxury savings app that helps you to put aside money each month to save for luxury items!

Here is one of our looks for the day; Miranda went for a cool casual vibe with all black, with denim and lace up details, adding a pop of colour with a Charlotte Simone pom pom hat. Sid wore this season’s layered frill trousers with a brown jacket at super trendy Gucci belt.

SUMMER DAYS


YES, the sunshine has FINALLY hit London town! We have been dying to dig out our simmer wardrobes for months (it’s been a very long winter for us Londoners *cries*). The warm weather definitely called for denim shorts and crop tops! 

Sid, went nude, nude, nude everything… we LOVE a top-to-toe one colour look. Matching colours in an outfit is probably one of the most satisfying thing ever… who agrees?

Sid’s Outfit Details:
T-shirt – H&M
Shorts: Armani Vintage
Back pack: Brandy Melville
Hoop earrings: Oriela
Sunglasses: Ray-ban



Miranda, went double denim (you already know it’s our favourite trend), adding summery festival vibes with a purple tie die top, purple sunglasses and a sassy pink choker.

Miranda’s Outfit Details:
Top: Forever 21
Choker: Forever 21
Shorts: Primark
Jacket: vintage Levi’s

  • We’ve been loving seeing all the looks from Coachella lately so were so excited to finally get to wear our own summery outfits! Although, it’s currently May and it’s freezing (where are you sun, we miss you a LOT!)

In true Londonistas style, we matched in all-black outfits with fluffy and bright accessories. We had so much fun testing out the new Remington straighteners, and we even got our very own ones personalised (we love you Remington!).

Miranda, went minimal with casual ripped jeans, polo top and leather jacket… accessorised with the sassiest and fluffiest cap by Charlotte Simone (MEGA babe).
