Highs & Lows
Finding a great bowl of Pho in Soho!
Traffic has become a nightmare in the city so take the tube whenever you can!
One of my favorite cities in the world, London has so much to offer for any type of traveler. Here's a compilation of my top accommodations, places to eat and a great mix of high and low shopping in the city!
Cây Tre is situated on busy Dean Street in Soho. When I'm in London for work, I usually stay at Dean Street Townhouse which is across the street. Its a bit of a dive in deco but the food is always good and reliable. In and out service is the vibe and they couldn't be nicer there.
Marylebone has West Village vibes with great boutique shops, restaurants and a great Waitrose grocery store. The restaurant is local sourced ingredients with an American twist to their menu's. The vibe is chill, comfortable and always cozy. I love meeting my bestie here for weekend brunches! Dinners can be a bit too lively for me sometimes but the dinner menu is incredible. Love this place!
This exhibition showcased a lot of the London fashion that was happening from the past thirty years and it was awesome. Dating back to late 80s and early 90s designs from the likes of the late Alexander McQueen, John Galliano and Vivienne Westwood. It also chronicled what was happening in popular culture back then with the rave and music scene in Manchester at the time as well. It was sooooo good!
The pinkest place in London! Everything is pink and this place existed before the Barbie movie. Its a bit over the top, great for the gram but the deserts here are INCREDIBLE!
Out of all the markets in London, I find this one still holds true to finding great vintage and random oddities that you would want to find at a market. Also a lot of great vinyl stalls too.
