Lovely Little London Visit

As i've previously mentioned on my blog my two close friends live in London so whenever I manage to find a cheap train ticket I pop down to have a catch up - because no matter how often you Facetime or Skype someone there's nothing like a real life catch up!

I immediately made my way over to Covent Garden after arriving at Euston and met up with my friend Sarah at The Shake Shack, now if you have never heard of this place let me let you in on a little secret. I had my first Shake Shack experience over in New York City a few years ago and I instantly fell in love - when I found out they'd opened one in the UK I was beyond excited and it certainly didn't disappoint! I went for the classic Shack burger, cheese fries & a sticky toffee frozen custard, it was a gorgeous evening and a perfect way to spend an hour catching up under the heater lamps!

The next morning we headed over to the Columbia Road flower market, I could not get over the low prices and the huge variety of flowers that were on offer - It's now my mission to find something similar in the north west, if anyone knows of any then please do let me know!

After we'd fought our way through the market and browsed in the little boutique and vintage shops - where I managed to pick up a little present for Freddie - we took a short walk over to the V&A Museum of Childhood. Now I'm no museum or exhibition expert but my friend Sarah is, I knew little about this place but it's one of the favourite things I've done in London. The afternoon was full of nostalgia and insight into the past, I need to bring Freddie back here on my next visit - he will absolutely love it!

My friend Charlotte and I used to fight over this vacuum when we were young, it was almost surreal sharing the experience of seeing it in a museum with her and reminiscing over our toddler days!

Before I caught my train I paid a little visit to one my all time favourite coffee shops - Tap Coffee and said our goodbyes over a flat white..

Until next time London
