London was lovely. Mostly grey, but lovely.

Staying here with some of our oldest family friends who I hadn’t seen since I was about one was also such a treat. I’d heard my parents speak so fondly of London after living here for several years and I was excited to experience it for myself.

There was a lot to like about London and to keep this short and sweet, just like my time here, I’ve made a list of things I remember most (bearing in mind this was two years ago):

  • The pubs are great and have that true English vibe you hope for
  • Trains will get you anywhere you want to go
  • Oxford Street is nuts! Some very cool shops, but too busy for my liking. I did see Inka Williams though and she is every bit a babe IRL
  • Tick off the London Eye, it’s fun to say you’ve done it
  • Harrods is the BOMB – levels upon levels of retail goodness and stunning architecture to match
  • I am an avid Made in Chelsea fan and going to the bridge where Spencer infamously dumped Louise was essential
  • The open top red buses are a thing and you should jump on one immediately
  • It’s inevitable you’ll consume bucket loads of Pimm’s
  • Seeing the Royal Palace makes you feel special but severely unimportant at the same time
  • The Tower of London is a must explore and home to an unbelievable amount of history (and Ravens)



This is one place I’m bound to be back.
