As some of you may remember I’m going to London on Wednesday (yay!) and because of that, I am the happiest person on this planet. Naaah, actually, I’m the happiest person in the whole solar system!!! :)))
I love the city (and here you can read about why exactly I think it’s the best place in the world), I can’t wait to go back to my favourite hidden gems London is packed with, to see my friends, to enjoy the sights… it’s going to be amazing!
However, because I’ve been properly sick (staying in bed for a week already!) I wasn’t able to do much preparations. I didn’t do any shopping (could easily write the 20 things I’m sure I need right now kind of post), no beauty treatments ( I’ll either manage to trim my fringe and do some clumsy manicure by myself or look like a trump, seriously!), I don’t know where I’m going to eat (just found out two of my favourite cafes had been closed earlier on this year- how unfortunate!) and in general everything’s such a mess! Could anyone give me a hand???!
What to see?
Of course I do have a brief idea of the places I want to visit (about 20 so far, actually!) but I wonder if you have any recommendations for me? It’s such a large, busy city that we could all probably learn a lot about it from one another. I’d love to hear about your favourite places in the comments bellow!
Where to eat?
Café/restaurant scene is the one changing so quickly that I’m really struggling to catch up with it- only two months ago in my post about London I was telling you about my favourite café I used to go to frequently for the last 8 years and… now it’s no longer there! I still want to visit a few places around Brixton, Shoreditch and Notting Hill but as for the rest- no idea! Any advice? Any food place recommendation (especially around Dalston, Hackney, Hoxton and Peckham) would be very well-received!
What to buy?
Although these days we can buy pretty much anything online, treasure-digging in a real shop is a totally different thing to experience (and it’s often cheaper- no shipping!). Any inspiration for what is worth-bringing home from London? I’m planning to stock up on books and magazines (as usual), get some barfi (there’s absolutely no way to find it in Poland!) and, hopefully, a nice pair of shoes (both Rocket Dog and Hush Puppies which are among my favourite casual brands are super hard to get here). Do you have any other suggestions?
In return I promise to spoil you with tonnes of amazing pictures and (hopefully) helpful tips, reviews and recommendations soon :)))
