Sisterly bonding has really stepped up a notch this week as Abby returns to NZ tomorrow (sob!)
Today we decided to go visit the cool kids in East London.
Tubing to Liverpool Street and popping up in the East you feel like you are a long way from SW6!
Straight away I feel inspired and excited. There is candy for my eyes all around.
I had heard a lot of good things about Caravan so we decided to make that our first stop.
I have to say ummmmmm slightly disappointed. Bummer eh? The shop seemed very low on stock and not really styled that well. I really really wanted to buy something, but I actually could not find anything to buy. Dumb!
So we continue our stroll down Redchurch Street, wow wow loving this area. We pop into Albion for a flat white (Yip yip!) and a gigantic cookie, honestly, bigger than my head kinda size.
Abby very excited by massive cookies!
Fresh & lovely breads
Fully satisfied and on a bit of a caffine high, we stumble across Labour & Wait.
Brilliant brilliant! Balls and balls of STRING! Red string, white string, brown string, I heart string A LOT. I end up buying a ball of red and a large ball of natural on a clever holder which has a cutting blade, plus another french market bag.
Furniture etc. at Spitalfields
Our meander takes us down Brick Lane. We consider stopping for a curry but the sun has decided to shine today so we opt for a salad from Giraffe and a nice glass of Spy Valley sav.
Home now and I am considering my purchases........string.
All the way to Shoreditch and all I come home with is string. Ha!
Here is a little P.S.
A few pics from earlier on in the week.....
