from jemma: dear diary, i’m in london!

This week I’m fortunate enough to be in London, my old home town!!! I’m so excited that I get the opportunity to come and visit this vibrant, electric city full of character, old world charm and WOW fashion.

I wanted to give everyone a bit of insight into my trip oversees, so I’ll be updating on my shopping, eating, and general perusing of the city. Prior to my flight I stopped off in NYC to stay with my sister and her lovely cat poppy. She recently moved into an apartment in Williamsburg. It’s such an airy, inspiring place – a perfect stay before my long haul flight to heathrow.

my flight was a night flight from JFK, the most uncomfortable flight I have ever had, I could NOT sleep, so I indulged in the new release movies that were on offer.

After 6 hours we finally came close to touching down. I slid open the window shutter and was greeted with a thick cushion of clouds – typical British weather!

What excites me about London is the eccentric fashion. Oxford street comes alive with high street brands throwing must-have trends into a visionary display. With that in mind I headed straight there to get a little bit of a fashion fix. I must warn you though it’s pretty tiring, afterwards you will sure need a cup of coffee in Costa Coffee perhaps?!

  1. Come down to the East End Thrift Store on thursday night for free drinks and 20% off everything! (The East End Thrift Store, unit 1a, The Watermans building, Assembly Passage, London, E1 4UT)

  2. if you want good coffee there’s better places in central than costa! if you’re shopping aroundabout oxford street again then head to Flat White on Berwick Street, Sacred on Ganton Street, Milkbar on Bateman Street, or Tapped and Packed on Rathbone Street. any of them will be a delight i promise! (or for a spot of phenomenal tea try Yumchaa (also on Berwick Street, just further up) :) x
