Style Domination Goes to London, Part 1

Hi all!

I’m super excited!  I will be heading to London soon to visit my dear friend Jen.  I wish so much that she lived closer, but hopping on a plane to visit her in one of my favourite cities in the world ain’t so bad!

I love everything about London.  The sites, the history, the architecture, Princess Kate, London’s amazing energy…it can do wrong in my eyes.

This post will be dedicated to my previous trips to London, highlighting some of my favourite memories of one of my favourite cities.  Most of my family still resides there, so it holds an extremely special place in my heart.  For those of you who don’t know, I’m a Brit myself, leaving London when I was about 2 years old to come to Canada with my mom and dad.

Stay tuned for my Part II which I will post after my visit with Jen!

Enjoy!

The Hinds Head Bray - possibly the BEST meal I've had in my life.  This is their famous Old Fashioned.  That vapour is infused with demerara brown sugar.  It smelled and tasted wonderful.  WOW.

      You will love it! Especially the shopping! Lol! There is a store there called Kiko – like Sephora but much more inexpensive. The colour ranges they sell for lipsticks, glosses, eye shadows, blushes and eyeliners are mind-boggling. Can’t wait to go stock up!

      • April 19, 2015 / 6:28 pm

        Oh I have heard of Kiko! I didn’t know much about it though. That sounds amazing! I love a good bargain!! 🙂

        • April 19, 2015 / 9:36 pm

          It’s so amazing! The brand is great quality too!!

  3. April 19, 2015 / 3:19 pm

    Now I want to visit London too 😉

    So jealous! I have been to London but only briefly. I want to go back and spend proper time exploring the city. I miss Marks & Spencer’s!

    • April 20, 2015 / 9:36 pm

      Omg! M&S! I miss it too! I also always pop into Liberty of London, the giant Topshop at Oxford Circus and if I’m feeling brave, Primark!!

    How exciting ! Yay 🙂 I don’t really have a favourite anything in London , I usually let my husband take the lead ( he’a British ) . Oh, I usually spend a good part of my time in Westfield mall ( shepherd’s bush ) when it rains… Have fun in London ! X

    • April 21, 2015 / 10:48 pm

      Oooh! Sounds great! Feels like it rains constantly in London, although I got lucky the last two time I was there – sunny weather and warm temperatures!!

  11. April 22, 2015 / 3:18 am

    *sigh* London….I lived there for 3 years and met the love of my life there! It holds a very special place in my heart! Thank you for helping me reminisce through your lovely photos! x <3

      OMG – you will have a blast! London is SO COOL and has such a vibrant energy! The shopping is off the hook and there are solo many amazing restaurants. It’s crazy expensive, so start saving NOW.

      • April 29, 2015 / 10:29 am

        LOLOLL that’s my fear is how expensive everything will be 🙁 I hope to stay with my friend so at least I won’t be paying for a hotel but ugh I know I need to start saving every penny now <3
