it's calling...

i have sooo much to post about, however, i haven't had two moments to plan my trip to london on monday. one of my closest friends is 8 months pregnant and we are having a shower for her. i am really looking forward to spending this time with her before the baby comes. so today, i'm prepping. i would love and appreciate any ideas of things to do! have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Go to the Victoria and Albert museum, it's beautiful and free as far as I can recall, the design museum usually has cool exhibits too, if Elodie will be with you then definitely visit Princess Diana's playground in Hyde Park, eat in Pret a Manger if you're on the move, get a cookie at Bens Cookies in covent garden while you watch the street performers, drop by Neals yard for yum veggie food aaaaand maybe get on an open top bus?

  2. We just returned from 10 days abroad - based out of London. My girls are older - but we love the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery around the corner. The zoo is always a hit - and Regent's Park so fun to run around in and break for a picnic. Hamley's :) - with Liberty of London nearby. I always love Tate Modern... Have a wonderful trip!

  3. They have just opened the Royal Wedding dress exhibition at Buckingham Palace, if I lived in London, I would be there tomorrow!

  4. besides all the touristy attractions (which are definitely worth seeing!) you have to go to Brick Lane:
    I think you might also like Shoreditch:
    hope you have a lovely trip! :)

  5. liberty is an amazing place to window shop. High tea is quintessentially English - the Dorchester does an expensive but once in a lifetime high tea. Tate modern for the free art and amazing architecture - then stroll up to the southbank by the river and maybe stop off at the British Film Institute for a coffee....Borough market food maret on a sat or sunday....ahhhh i love my town!!!

  6. For living like a local eastside:
    Saturday - Broadway farmers market in Hackney is divine- very local, gorgeous food and produce and full of young stylish londoners- there is a cafe at the south end of the road that makes awesome coffee- the likes of which you only find in italy or australia.
    Sunday - Columbia Road flower markets are incredible- gorgeous flowers and great surprising little vintage and handcrafted goods shops.
    If you get to Brick Lane go to Cheshire St- Pretty cool too.
    If you want other tips- look at TimeOut (a magazine that tells you all the goings on in London); and beerintheeveing is great for finding out of the way pubs that make you feel like a proper local.
