Lovely old cars: check. Beautiful old buildings: check. London being wonderful: check. 😊
I spent my Saturday last week in going around the Portobello road market in notting hill. This was my first time and i did not expect it will be so long stretching from south to north and that it will be flooded with people. If you love clicking pictures of objects and still life (wont be still with swarm of shoppers) this is a paradise. However with the crowd it will be a test if your patience The market was so delightful with curios, vintage items, collectables, some of the shops like Alice's looked straight from a fairytale. Iam sure gonna go again maybe in winter. If you are still planning or visiting London first time give it a go. .. . . .. .. .. .. .. .. #darlingescapes #girlswhotravel #travelgram #lovetotravel #traveldiary #wearetravelgirls #flashesofdelight #mytinyatlas #wheretofindme #beautifuldestinations #ilandedhere #passionpassport #theprettycities #discoverearth #travelphotography #travelblogger   #cityscapes #citybreak #placestosee #instatravel #instapassport #picoftheday #beautifulplaces #prettycitylondon #londonbylondoners #londonforall #followforfollowback
📍Kensington • Happy Monday! 💐
(PL↴) There is still a lot to see in London, but we left it for our next visit 🗺💕 We escaped from crowded places and then we saw London as a beautiful and calm city with friendly people 😌 And we loved it 🙂 . Miło było odwiedzić te wszystkie miejsca, które polecaliście mi w ubiegłym tygodniu w komentarzach ☺️💕 Na naszej liście wciąż jeszcze trochę ich pozostało, akurat na następną wizytę 🗺, ale zobaczyliśmy wystarczająco, aby się zauroczyć ☺️ Uciekliśmy od turystycznych miejsc i poznaliśmy Londyn w nieco innej, spokojnej odsłonie, a i przypadkowo trafiliśmy na targ staroci w jednej z wąskich uliczek Notting Hill, na którym dorwałam zachwycający, stary kompas ✨ No i wpadliśmy na drugą cukiernię Peggy 🧁💕 Czyż nie jest pięknie udekorowana? 😍🌸 . . . #peggyporschen #london #instalondon #theprettycities #prettycitylondon #prettylittlelondon #pinkcafe #pinkinmyfeed #thinkpink #prettythings #pinkbike #visitlondon #tinytattoo #moontattoo #pinkcupcakes #flowerpower #flowerstagram #pinkflowers #flowerlovers #pinkroses #eattheworld #prettythings #darlingdaily #coffeeshopvibes #livethelittlethings #sheisnotlost #girlswhotravel #travelblogger
I was a bit uncertain about reading this book to begin with - I thought it would be quite focused on nature and, after a failed attempt, I have learned that I am not good with anything focused on nature. But the beautiful cover kept seducing me and when my colleague offered me a finished copy left over from a mailing, I just couldn't say no. . Saltwater is a very autobiographical novel about a young woman who grows up working class in Sunderland, moves to London for uni and tries to fit in and then, after her grandfather dies, moves to Ireland because she feels purposeless. From what I've read about Jessica Andrews, it certainly does feel very much based on her life! She's a very talented writer and I'm already excited to see what she does next - although the Sally Rooney comparisons have inevitably poured in, they're definitely valid, and I'm really sad I wasn't been able to see her at an event when I was in London! I loved her descriptions of London and the way she conjured up the protagonist Lucy's interest in music and that very late 2000s ethos, and the structure was really interesting and compelling. Altogether I really enjoyed reading this book - I feel like there was something missing to make it a new favourite, but she is definitely one to watch!
