Hello my dear, let’s talk about my third trip to London. I went to London two weeks ago to visit a friend who studies there. She already knew a lot about this cool urban city and gave us a city tour in three days. We had an amazing afternoon tea on Saturday with pastries designed by Matthew Williamson at Balthazar (Covent Garden) and drank a lot of cocktails at cool places. In my opinion, London has got the best bars of all places! Neighborhoods like Shoreditch are really upcoming with conceptstores and pop-up restaurants. If you’re in Shoreditch you should also visit Dishroom, the perfect place for Indian food and cocktails!
Besides that you can eat and drink at cool places, it is also a shopping walhalla! Name a brand or store, London’s got it all. If you like to see gorgeous shop windows, go to Bond Street or Regent Street for all the luxury brands. When I saw the shop window of Moschino at Regent Street with the SS 2015 collection inspired by Barbie, I couldn’t pass the store before I took a photo with it. I’ve got the Barbie Iphone case of the collection but I didn’t bring it with me at that moment (damn!). People around me don’t understand why I got this case but I can tell you, the Angels of Victoria’s Secret have one too! So I’m not the only freak in the world with a Iphone case like that ;). Ciao for now!
