London Town

My London Photo Diary

I am so fortunate that work allows me to travel and I especially feel lucky when its a place like LONDON! To be honest I never had an urge to visit and I could just slap myself for brushing it off because I now have the deepest love affair with this city.


The tube, Notting Hill, the rich history, and of course the shopping. All the stores are on steroids there… Topshop (of course), Liberty, H&M, Lush… and so many other choices!!

Let's be real the sneaker and coat game in London are next level. Being there I was in the mood to dress up more than my laid back LA uniform of a t-shirt and denim. The spirit of the city is something I definitely vibed with. My home for the week was the Rosewood which had thee most comfortable beds, the decor is like an instagram dream, and the hospitality surpasses anything I’ve experienced. I have nothing but good things to say. They treat you like a royal and I absolutely adored it…. the British accents didn’t hurt either. Even though I was there for work, it felt like a vacation. Getting on that plane home was a snap back to reality. See you soon London!


HIGHLIGHTS

  • Pub crawls through Shoreditch. Def. grab a drink at the Ace hotel and make your way to the nearby pubs.

  • Notting Hill. Visit the flea market that takes place there then fuel up with thai food and a brew at The Churchill Arm (the prettiest pub that ever was).

  • The British Museum. Anything you’ve ever learned in your past art history class is floating in this museum. Its so amazing and freeee.

  • Tower Bridge. Sometimes confused for the London London Bridge… Go ahead sing Fergie’s song, I did 😉

  • Buckingham Palace. Like I even need to say more…

  • Big Ben. You really can’t miss it … you can spot that clock in several parts of the city.

  • The London Eye. I’m always chasing sunsets so if you’re like me you’ll eat up these delicious views as the sun goes down.

  • 5th Street Circus. Incredible shopping. The Topshop flagship store is here and so many other shops we don’t have in the states. The biggest Lush in the world is also here. I would spend a full day going through this street. and dont overlook the shoe stores they have some really cool adidas and converse style I have yet to see here in LA.

  • Sketch. After you are all shopped out at 5th Street Circus, head to Sketch which is nearby to see Pinterest IRL. Google it, you’ll see what I mean.

  • Harrod’s. Even if you can’t exactly shop down to the ground here, its such an experience and worth checking out. You can also make your way to their souvenir shop. Lots of cute and affordable things to chose from.

  • Dishoom. Best Indian Food Ever. Literally the best dish I had while in London. The Brits aren’t exactly known for their cuisine but you can find a few hidden gems.
