London Calling Part 2

It's so rainy and cold in Sydney right now that I could easily be in London!
Our final few days were spent trying to tick off as much as possible on our British to-do list! We went for an early morning run in Islington, which is such a great way to explore the city! Brunch at The Breakfast Club was also amazing- such a cute fit out, and one of the best green juices I've tried! We also did quite a bit of shopping- my fave stores being H&M (of course!), &Other Stories, Topshop and Kiko. We also explored Convent Gardens (the cutest little theatre district), ticked Stonehenge off the list, rode around the city on double decker red buses and ate the best 1 Pound berries and amazing salads at EAT and Pret a Manger. 
Basically I had no-where near enough time to explore London (I would need weeks!), but the experience has definitely made London one of my favourite cities! Can't wait to go back!

Next up is my Paris photo diaries- Salut!

London Calling Part 1

 London was such an amazing first stop on our European adventure. My 10 friends and I stayed in a lovely 3 story Air B&B apartment in the suburb of Islington, which was perfect due to the abundance of cute cafes and little boutiques (plus we were right next door to Aesop- their lip balm saved my dry lips!). We used our apartment as our base to explore London via double decker red buses and the tube. Some highlights from the first few days include seeing all the famous landmarks, fresh berries everywhere and of course shopping at Oxford Circus. There were all sorts of amazing fresh food and green juices via my new loves Pret a Manger- plus they had the best porridge ever (in my opinion anyway. Please open in Sydney!). Another highlight was the huge Topshop where I ate lunch and froyo and shopped up a storm! One thing I did discover was a lack of good coffee- that is until I stumbled across a little Australian cafe where I was majorly excited to order a flat white!
