Friday treat at the wonderful Bake in Chinatown’s Wardour Street 🐟 Their fish-shaped taiyaki are made at the moment and filled with delicious red bean paste! The shop is full of many other Asian treats, from pineapple buns to matcha soufflé cakes 👏🏻
Winterville is back for another year, and this time it’s moved from Victoria Park to Clapham Common! ❄️ This is the view from the top of the big wheel where you can see right across @wintervilleldn and the rest of London 😍 I had an amazing evening at the launch last night, sitting up here with a glass of mulled wine in the awesome company of @thedutchessoflondon @absolutelyannabelle and @thefloralrepublic 🍷👯♀️
It’s not over yet, there’s still plenty of turkey to get through. We’re celebrating #Thanksgiving all weekend! Join us until Sunday for festive feasting at only £ 29.95 for 3 courses and a glass of Prosecco on arrival! 🍽️
How lovely is this private terrace in the middle of #Shoreditch ? There's not one but three terraces in this 2-bedroom triplex penthouse we have for sale at the moment, as well as two reception rooms and an eat-in kitchen. Amazing location too. Check the link in our bio for the full listing with loads of photos. #londonproperty
Leadenhall Market, a beautiful covered market in the heart of the City of London, has been the site of a market in some form since the 14th century. The ornate roof structure and cobbled floors of the current structure, designed in 1881 by Sir Horace Jones (who was also the architect of Billingsgate and Smithfield Markets), make it one of my favourite London sights. But it was featuring in the 2001 film Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (as Diagon Alley) that has put it firmly on the tourist map. There is still an active fresh market every weekday 10h00-18h00 but go at any time to enjoy the view from one of the restaurants or bars housed permanently in the market. Where is your favourite London market? Happy Friday everyone 😎
After a wonderfully hilarious debacle with wrong trains and arriving an hour late for dinner to then fourty five minutes later get back on the train to head south, today will be about peace and quiet. I’ve got tea and a new book from @persephonebooks - Miss Buncle’s Book, DE Stevenson which has popped up on various other Instagram feeds and I wanted in. Happy Friday!
Okay so I have finally caved- there is no denying Christmas has come to London, so it has now come to my feed too. Here’s an autumnal/festive combo to ease the transition... 🍁🎄🍂💫
I’ve been off Insta this week and on Twitter a bit more which I use for my job- and because I have only a little brain and want to maintain some sort of life/online balance I can only handle one form of social media at a time! But can I just say I loooove Instagram- it is such a more friendly, supportive and positive community than Twitter- where the only way to get traction seems to be by being negative or argumentative. It’s nice to be back- and happy Friday folks!
Happy Friday! It’s such a beautiful day today, and the Black Friday sales are doing my tree in. So, I’m off for a gorgeous walk in the beaut, cold weather, and I’m excited to catch up with an old friend today, too! ☕️💚
Even though I consider Oxford Street and it's surrounding area hell on earth sometimes, I do like to visit the area every now and then, just to remind myself that I do *actually* live in London. It, like Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, feel like such iconic London institutions, and seeing them still makes my heart flutter a little bit. In the coming February I've lived in London for 5 years altogether and the fact that I still feel this burst of happiness when I see these famous sights, makes me realise I definitely made the right decision back in 2013. These sights are not my favourite parts of the city, by any stretch, but they will always hold some sort of iconic and magical value to me nevertheless.❤️
What do you love about London (or your own home town!) the most? ✨
| it’s #BlackFriday and I’m waltzing into the weekend like this D R E A M Y staircase at Fortnum & Mason✨ After work today, I’m heading back to my most visited country in Europe, Denmark 🇩🇰 to check out @airbnb Lego house! If you’re looking for an autumnal European getaway, I’ve written about my favourite fall destination for @buzzfeed ➡️ link in profile! •
| POP-UP | @the_berkeley’s rooftop garden is transforming into an enchanted forest cinema. Step through the trees into a snug wooden cabin for two and curl up with hot water bottles and @moncler wraps to enjoy classic films. Mini shepherd’s pies, mulled wine and hot chocolate completes your perfect evening. Running up until 18 February.
A couple of the mews houses in Pavilion Road at the back of the Danish Embassy in Sloane Street. The embassy was designed by Arne Jacobsen and I would love to go inside. I think one year it was part of the London Open House weekend but I missed it •
