You Need A PA’s ‘Christmas Service’

Here at YNAPA we know how manic it is when the countdown to Christmas begins. The countless queueing, lifting, sweating, scrambling for the last roll of wrapping paper to finally heave it all into a cab to race home and and start spending too long finding the end of the sellotape to start the wrapping process. It’s just no fun! Don’t fret, help is at hand with our YNAPA personal shopping service. We will personally head to the stores and buy every last present for you. If you want something unique just get in touch and we will help source the special gift. On top of that, we will take care of the finer details of the wrapping and presentation so it’s totally taken off your hands.

Farm Girl Cafe

Here at YNAPA we are loving the healthy hipster Farm Girl Café that’s bringing the holistic Australian café culture to Notting Hill. Owned and ran by partners in crime, both professionally and personally, Rosie Mann and Anthony Hood. Farm Girl is ‘inspired by a childhood of growing up on a rural farm outside Melbourne’ bringing the Aussie influence with a healthy focus to Portobello Road.

The menu is from Benoit Marmoiton who’s best known for being a private chef to the stars. The dishes have a nutritional aim and Doctor Melly Lou, founder of Liquorice Lifestyle have been advising too.

Look out for the Farm Girl porridge with jumbo oats, chia seeds, Himalayan salts, coconut oil, served with yoghurt, berries, or avocado. Our winner here at YNAPA has to be the BLT with a vegan twist, made from coconut bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomato and cashew chilli guacamole.

Farm Girl is located at 59a Portobello Road, London W11 3DB

Sir Plus
Struggling what to buy the male in your life this Christmas? Look no further. Sir Plus is a menswear brand like no other, driven by founder Henry Hales, who started it in 2011 with his funky boxer shorts. Since then it has evolved to include homemade Nehru jackets, dressing gowns, waistcoats, Grandad shirts, knitwear and accessories.
