MAY: SOUL STORE WEST

A new burger joint has opened up in Kilburn, we’ve heard lots about it so obvi we went to check it out. Soul Store West has been open for around 3 months now and is an ex-nightclub space, so it is a very big restaurant where they host live music nights too.

When we went, we both ordered our usual cheeseburgers, with chilli cheese fries and mac & cheese (cos there’s no such thing as too much cheese!) The cheeseburgers were quite big and super messy! It came with a pretty chunky beef patty, lettuce, tomato, a generous helping of mayo and some kind of secret topping that wasn’t written in the menu so we weren’t sure what it was! It looked like minced beef but with a sauce that had a slightly sweet taste. This extra meat/sauce plus the mayo made it an extra sloppy one – but delish at the same time!

Sides-wise, we were pleasantly surprised by the mac & cheese, we’re very picky with our mac & cheese so were happy when the crispy topped macaroni came, with a thick cheesy sauce with good flavour, as opposed to a liquidy bland sauce that you usually get. The chilli cheese fries were also great, french fries smothered with real cheese (no plastic cheese sauces here!) with chilli beef on top – super tasty but we over ordered, as always!

Overall we would definitely go back to Soul Store West, the restaurant mainly specialises in ribs so we would def go back and try those. The burgers were definitely good, not the best we’ve ever had but the sides made up for it!

It is worth mentioning that we felt that the space was lacking some ambience, it is quite large and has a kind of ’empty’ feeling when you’re there, it seems that a lot of people go there for drinks rather than food so it can get quite loud in the evenings. The service also wasn’t the best as when we went, the waitresses weren’t that knowledgeable on the menu, there wasn’t a drinks menu available, and we were told that quite a few things on the menu weren’t available, which is understandable for a new restaurant – but it has been open 3 months and was empty at the time!

Have you tried Soul Store West?

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:

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.

We had so much fun testing out the new Remington straighteners, and we even got our very own ones personalised (we love you Remington!).
