LONDON - DAY ONE //

Thursday, 1 September 2016


Dress: MACCS the label (coming soon!)

















Let me start off by saying how incredible this trip was and how much I already miss Europe. We spent a total of two weeks touring London, Scotland, Spain and Portugal. We started our journey in London - staying in Notting Hill. We stayed in Notting Hill our last trip to London and loved it - it's a bit cheaper than staying right in downtown London and has such a quaint charm to it. We stayed in an airbnb above the famous Notting Hill bookshop - it was hilarious when we would exit our apartment and be faced with an accidental photobomb of tourist photos (I guess that's how celebs feel when they leave hotels hah!)

We spent our first couple days touring around London on the famous big red bus - highly recommended for any first time Londoners - it gets you everywhere you need to go quickly and feeds you bits of info around the city/architecture/history etc. We of course stopped off at Big Ben and Westminster Abby to snap some photos and stumbled across an amazing rooftop bar at the ME hotel London - perfect for an afternoon cocktail, it's expensive so I would stick to just the one and mosey on. We also spent some time browsing the Portobello market - taking in the street art and antiques, enjoying the music, and sampling some of the delectable cuisine along the way (we had to sample the churros.. it was uh research ;).. We came across a great brunch spot but never ended up going there which I so regret! It was called Farm Girl and is in a hidden little alley with cute pink tables and cucumber water - must check this out next time!

We also watched the changing of the guards at buckingham palace - they only do this on certain days so be sure to check ahead of time. To me, it was okay, definitely worth checking out once but I likely won't do it again. Get there early!! It gets PACKED and you'll be crammed next to your neighbour like a little sardine ;)
