As part of our 3rd blog anniversary we were invited to celebrate at the newly refurbished Zaika, Kensington. This Indian restaurant is a gem hidden in Kensington offering tasty indian cuisine. We had Goat Biryani and Boneless Lamb which were delicious, accompanied by a few appetisers to share! Don’t leave without trying their chocolate bounty bar, absolutely divine!

In case you missed it, last week there were reindeers visiting us all the way from Lapland to the heart of Kensington, at Bodo Schloss part of late night Christmas shopping day. Kids had a great and unusual after school fun!

Kensington Mums was happy to attend a press event for Mustela UK, the Skincare expert for babies and mothers to be. Ever since I became a Mum I loved everything about Mustalla, from their gorgeous baby shampoo to their nappy cream and oils.  Their smell is absolutely divine. If you haven’t tried them, give them a go!

Kensington Mums was delighted to be invited to the Ice Bar London where the walls, bar, tables and even your own personal glass are made from crystal clear Torne River ice which is harvested from the pristine winter wonderland of Jukkasjärvi in Northern Sweden. It was a unique experience and a great way to celebrate our 3rd blog anniversary dinner, but don’t worry you will not freeze as you are provided with thermal cape and gloves to keep you warm. Make this the perfect, magical date night this Christmas.
