london, uk :: here and there

No matter how many times I visit London, I always discover something new. Whether it be a new favourite shop, new treat to eat, or a new neighbourhood to discover. On this trip, we found Exmouth Market in Clerkenwell, a hub of activity dating back to the Middle Ages. See that shop called ‘The Family Business‘? Inside, you can browse the portfolios of the local, and many visiting international practitioners that see a term here as a rite of passage. Each artist will create a bespoke design just for you, but if you want a tattoo by owner Mo Coppoletta, you will have to add your name to the year long wait list.

Other favourites at Exmouth Market: GNF (mid-century furniture + vintage fabric), Caravan, Family Tree, Medcalf, Space, and Brill (to name a few).

Oh, and that mac + cheese at Pizza East? I’m still having cheesy dreams!

Rabbit! Rabbit!

To say that it has been busy, would be an understatement. I started this post on July 25th and haven’t had a chance to finish it until now.  Sheesh! I’m not able to spill the beans on what we are currently up to quite yet, but here are some instagrams I took since we arrived to London (UK) three weeks ago!

Chat soon … x

london, uk :: spitalfields, shoreditch, shad thames

We’ve been experiencing some crazy weather lately – sun / hot ->; rainy ->; downpour ->; sun / hot – in just a span of an hour or two. It is hard to imagine that we started off in Spitalfields (first image) with that beautiful blue sky and ended the day drenched in Shad Thames (last image). To learn about airbrushing, see Luminess Air Reviews.

We took the bus to the Spitalfields Antiques Market, picked up a mocha at Luxe (my favourite), poked our heads in A. Gold, and strolled through to Shoreditch for some goodies at Labour and Wait and lunch at Pizza East. The day ended at London Bridge where I couldn’t resist hopping off the bus ride home and walking to the Design Museum to pick up a slice of Victoria Sponge Cake – yum!
