[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he fun continued at Cinnamon Kitchen, within the gorgeous Devonshire Terrace. Monday marked the day of Holi, a Hindu festival marking the day of Spring- no more Winter! With all this lovely sunshine recently, it felt very apt. For the week, Cinnamon Kitchen have set up a Play Holi area in the courtyard, where you can pelt each other with colourful powders to your heart’s content. Or, in my case, my nose’s discontent. I was sneezing rainbows by the end of it.
After a delicious cinnamon bellini, from Anise- the adjacent bar of Cinnamon Kitchen- and few canapés, we put on some super flattering boiler suits and given a couple of packets of colourful powder. Breaking Bad chic! Here’s a few of us before the explosions of colour…
…and us, after! Including me- mid sneeze.
After we had cleaned up a little- wet wipes, what lifesavers!- we went into Anise for a few cocktail making lessons
Rob the mixologist showed us three different cocktails to make- all delicious. The cinnamon bellinis we had earlier were definitely my favourite though…mmmm.
Thanks to Uber, we were driven home in our colourful states- my black jeans had become a fetching dusty pink. I love using Uber, I always feel so fancy and spoiled when I use one of their cars.

Holi is also about strengthening ties with friends and loved ones. That couldn’t describe the evening any better- meeting these crazy kids was great! Lynette, Leng, Tom, Emma/Bloomzy, Emma/GohemianTravel, Yishyene, Jess, and Amrita– thank you for making the night as fun as it was! I mean…Oscar selfie love, people
Happy 7th Birthday Nuffnang! thanks for such a great time!
