It’s funny because before I moved to London I swear I did so many posts like this. Trips out, markets, vintage fairs, exploring – now I’m here I never seem to get any time. I’ve got a couple of weeks left before I go back to work (Lush work) and so I’m on a mission to make the most of my weekends off. Goin back to ma rootsz (of er, 2 years), it was time to explore East London again. We did it all.

Starting off with a stroll along Columbia Road picking up bunches of flowers and then heading across to Brick Lane Market. Stopping off for a rainbow bagel (yaaaaaaaaaaa) which wasn’t really worth the what felt like a 3 hour wait but the bagel shop is m.u.s.t every time I’m nearby. Looking at all the c00L street art we ended up at the market and drank fresh pineapple juice out of a pineapple and ate mini cupcakes. CUTE. Slight diversion, we went to my favourite place in the whoooole of London, God’s Own Junkyard in Walthamstow. I’ve been a couple of times since moving to London and every visit I love it just as much as the first, a continually changing live installation. Pretending it was summer, we drank sweet cider in London Fields to finish.

Here’s to summer and going back to exploring London properly and bringing a camera with me more!
