A weekend in London (part 2)

Yay! Here it is finally, the second part of my mom’s and I city trip to London with some of the nicest places we discovered over the weekend. This list is not meant to be exhaustive and never will be. London being the kind of city where cool places just pop up in seconds I feel. Enjoy, and as usual I hope you’re hungry! <3

In Shoreditch and around:

Leila’s Shop: A sweet cafe and grocery serving simple and fresh food. Menu is small but appetizing.

O’Dell’s store: Fine quality goods for the classiest of our men.

Luna & Curious: Attached to Odell’s, a little boutique full of pretty paper goods (i.e. Rifle Paper & co – my all time fave!), books, jewels and home accessories.

In House Studio: Well actually it was a creative design studio in the middle of Shoreditch but what a pretty one with all these green apples ad rustic decoration.

BoxPark: I told you about it some time ago (here). Went and liked it again this time ; ).

In Soho and Fitzrovia:

The Riding House Café: North of Oxford Circus, a brasserie type of restaurant. Brunch is amazing there (and popular so arrive quite early)! Take one of their fresh juices, it’s excellent!

Kaffeine: In front of The Riding House Cafe, a little cafe and expresso bar with a relaxed vibe. Apparently very good coffee too.

One Leicester Street Hotel: The hotel we stayed in. Great location, beautiful (yet small) room with, as a bonus, L’Occitane products and Skinnymini teas, delightful!

In Chelsea and Parsons Green:

Hally’s: I still dream of the eggs Benedict I took that day at Hally’s, magic (the English breakfast my mom had doesn’t look bad either, hun?!). Well worth the ride all the way to Parsons Green, this small  restaurant (again arrive early, people are queuing) serves DELICIOUS and fresh food in a Californian-inspired set up. Gosh, I wish we had something like this here!

Gail’s: Artisan bakery selling wonderful bread, cakes and pastries (this chessecake… mmmmh).

Gift guide – For the home lover

Here it is, the very first gift guide of the Holiday season! For a couple of weeks now, I’ve been gathering gift ideas for my family, friends (and myself I’ve to say). Christmas this year will be a bit sooner for us as we’re leaving on the 19th for our honeymoon. I can’t get my head around all the things I need to do before leaving, but what an exciting period of the year, right?

Anyway, back to gifts, most of the items below come from European online shops (and Brussels based boutiques) so don’t worry too much about taxes and stuff, it should be ok. Next gift guide should be up on the blog early next week so stay tuned and enjoy! xoxo.

Shop discovery – Broc charme

Broc charme

Coming back from a long weekend in our rustic chalet near Chamonix, I’m in the mood for everything old and wood. It’s thus no surprise I’m coveting the whole selection of vintage finds from the French online shop Broc Charme. Any of these objects would add a delicate and beautiful touch to any modern interior, don’t you think?
