I still have one or two more London posts to share over the next week or so. This one features a few moments which were just wonderful. Friends keep asking me if it feels like I was ever away and to be honest my holiday does seem a distant memory, as I have plunged back into work. It is lovely to look at the photos and remember all the amazing things I saw, ate and did! And...as I have said before I just loving being able to share them with you.
Tea in the Country: It might look sunny, but it was surely one of the coldest days while I was away! My sweet and very pregnant friend planned this day out and we headed into the country for a blissful escape which included tea, champagne (for me only of course), cake and scones! Finally I knew what Katie Fforde was talking about in her books!
The Hearst Offices: How can such fashion mastery be contained all in one space...Elle, Harpers Bazaar, the list goes on! I was very excited to have visited the home of a few of my favourites and it happened to be on the day of the Elle Style Awards. The air had a certain energy to it and I kept hearing office girls and fabulous fashionistas asking each other... 'Are you going to the awards?'. I couldn't take very many pictures of this space as there is some top secret planning going on, but still great to have been there!
Dover Street Market: Another spot where snapping away is frowned upon, but managed this sneaky one of the cool counter of Labour & Wait who have a concession of their rather lovely products in this huge fashion space.
Selfridges: Spent a few hours there and really took my time to browse! I particularly loved the work of Mark Giglio and dream of owning one of these wooden ornaments!
Recipease: Jamie Oliver's Notting Hill shop is a treat to behold. I popped in there to find a gift for my sister who is an avid cook. Awesome space, wonderful ideas, left feeling inspired (and hungry).
Joe the Juice: After a long flight and an icy arrival I headed to this cool place for a much needed pick me up! The spinach, ginger and pineapple juice (tasted better than it sounds) made me feel instantly better! Fun space with energetic staff (must be the juice, right) and really close to Carnaby Street!
Burger & Lobster: Two of my very fashionable friends who happen to know the inner who, what and wheres of London took me to this New York style restaurant. There is no menu you can either have as the name states burger or lobster. I had a HUGE burger which I could not finish (damn, I tried) and the best glass of red wine (regretfully didn't catch the name). This was one of the best meals I had on my trip and of course it was just wonderful to catch up with dear friends!
Thanks for sharing in these moments - as I have said before I hope you feel as if you came with me!
Today is another busy day - off to Decorex. Take a look at this post ilovebokkie did about her day yesterday - it was lovely to have her friendly face in the audience.
