This Sunday I partook in two of my favourite weekend activities, eating brunch and drinking cocktails.
It was a pretty casual date with one of my best friends, who just moved back from NYC, which is why I suggested San Lorenzo’s. It is a New York style Italian restaurant located on Georges street, famous for one of the best brunches in Dublin. Check out their menu here.
What I Wore:
I am obsessed with the fedora, it is a saviour on bad hair days but a pain on windy days, so I have to choose carefully.
This top is actually my mum’s, but I have ‘adopted’ it. I love the shape, and it is so comfortable without looking sloppy.
My make up was all about the black liner and nude lip, a go-to look for me.
- Urban Decay Naked foundation
- Maybelline concealer
- Wet n Wild powder
- Wet n Wild blush
- Victoria’s Secret bronzer
- Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pomade
- Makeup Revolution eyeshadow from Flawless palette
- Maybelline gel liner
- YSL Mascara
- Rimmel liner- east end snob
- Mac Hue lipstick
Now for the good stuff: The FOOD!
I went for a sweet option with the French toast and bacon stack with maple syrup, while Greta chose the crab cakes with eggs, potatoes and asparagus.
My french toast was incredible, and the bacon was true New York style bacon, rather than rashers, my favourite!
Both dishes were amazing, but we creeped on the dishes that others were eating around us, and everything looked and smelled amazing!
The portions are really generous, the food is incredibly flavoursome, and the atmosphere is very cool and friendly.
We toasted with passionfruit Bellini’s which were also gorgeous. I cannot wait to head back to San Lorenzos to enjoy another #BruchofChampions.
After a lovely stroll through town, where we enjoyed the Christmas lights and beautifully decorated windows on Grafton street, we took a stroll through Stephens Green park and made our way to House on Leeson street for a couple more cocktails. House is a favourite of mine for nights out, it is very comfortable, cute and the cocktails are fantastic. Being there on a Sunday was even better, we didn’t have to battle for a seat, the heaters were turned on and the barman chatted to us about our taste in cocktails and made some great suggestions. Unfortunately I cannot remember what mine was called but Greta’s one in the background was a forget-me-not (I think) and yes that is a giant rhubarb leave wrapped around her glass.
Hope you had a great weekend,
