A day together in London

Hi everyone,

I hope you are having a nice week so far!

As every Wednesday, I am excited to be back with a new post for you.

Before we start, and as mentioned in my Instagram stories, I wanted to thank you for your kind support. I know there are a few of you genuinely reading my content. Also, thanks for noticing I am back and for those very few support messages. This really touched me and reminded me of the reason why I wanted to start a blog.

Today I wanted to take you with me through London’s streets. I’ve wanted to share with you the places I love to go to on my days off. In order to carry out this mission, my friend Patricia kindly agreed on documenting a day together in London during her stay.

 

If you haven’t met her yet, please, take a look at my previous blog post to know more about her!

The legend says some people cannot process information in the morning until they have their dose of caffeine. This applies to us, Patricia, my flat mate and I. We could not start the day in any other possible way. Treating myself with a hazelnut latte really makes my day. It’s one of those small life pleasures I genuinely enjoy.

 

 

After our breakfast, we decided to pop by a Waterstones bookstore. Patricia got herself a Virginia Wolf small compilation book whereas I decided to go for Haruki Murakami. I guess I always had a thing for broken, sad, twisted souls.

I also decided to treat myself with a watercolor mole skin for my sketches.

 

 

Our journey continued through the busy streets of London.

 

 

 

 

Our next destination was a manicure salon. I felt this was a whole next step in our womance. I loved Patricia’s popping red color.

 

 

Our next stop was a matcha bar and restaurant in central London named Tombo. Both, Patricia and I absolutely LOVE matcha. We had to.

The place is a small and cozy restaurant near Tottenham Court Road. Did you know you can treat yourself with all sorts of matcha dishes and coffees? Our desert choice was a matcha ice cream.

 

 

 

 

 

After making our tummies happy, we headed to a Vinyl store. Patricia in a Vinyl store equals to a kid in a candy store. She wouldn’t stop looking around Vinyl per Vinyl in search of her favorite artists.

 

We decided to finish our day with a peaceful walk around Carnaby Street.

 

 

I couldn’t remember the last time we walked together through those streets before she moved out of the country. Having her around was like letting a bit of magic into my life for a few days.

 

Many thanks to Spilett Photo Creations for your help with the editing of these photos!

 

Thanks to you all for reading me.

 

Yours,

Fatima
