Oh London. I haven’t been back in this beautiful city in two years and now that I’m back in town, I’m pinching myself for not having visited again sooner. Why have I waited so long? If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you may understand just why exactly I’m having such a fabulous time. Days spend admiring the pretty pastels of Notting Hill, sipping on (seriously) good coffee, laughing my little heart out at the hilarious The Book of Mormon show, and indulging in delicious and high quality food has been all kinds of lovely. Ben’s been busy — the reason we’re in town is because he’s presenting at a concept art conference here — but I quite like wandering around on my own doin’ my thing. Today I’m going to check out the Colombia Road Flower Market and explore some of Shoreditch. What are your plans for this Sunday?
