Friends, I’ve been so excited to put this list together for you! The truth is, London is one of my very favorite cities in the world – I’ve visited a few times, and was lucky enough to live there once upon a time. It just never loses its luster. So, when I give you a list of my very favorite things to do in London, I know of what I speak. Read on
Friends, I have so much to tell you about the wonderful time I had in London last week! But first things first – I know you want the scoop on my retail adventures, and goodness knows there’s plenty to tell. In four days, I managed to hit Portobello Road, Liberty of London, Harrods, Topshop, Selfridges, the V&A Museum shop, Cath Kidson, and of course Boots. To say nothing of the sightseeing, eating, theatre and my afternoon at the Four Seasons. Exhausted? Yep. Worth it? Totally.
While I catch my breath, I thought I’d show you a few of my favorite finds from London. Don’t fret – after some very careful sleuthing, I’ve found spots you can nab each and every one of these goodies right here in these United States. Read on
Friends, I have to tell you…I have a whole list of posts in my head to write, but not one of them is making a bit of sense to me today. Why? Because I’M GOING TO LONDON THIS WEEK!!
Excited much? I know it’s obnoxious of me, but honestly, there are third graders who weren’t alive the last time I left the country, and I am as giddy as a kid on her way to Disneyland. Instead of doing all of the work I should be doing, my head is spinning with everything I have to do to get ready to go (pack! figure out how to look celeb-chic on a 12-hour flight! download iPad apps!), everything I want to do while I’m there (Topshop! Harrods! Tea at the Four Seasons!), and everything I’m planning to buy while I’m there (Brit fashion mags! Strepsils! Cadbury!!!).
All of those exclamation points…friends, this is the mental space I’m in right now. I actually lived in London once upon a time, so I’ve done all of the touristy goods (and then some). In other words, I’m there to shop. (And eat, but that’s another story.)
So, in part because it’s fun, and in part because there’s literally nothing else I can focus on right now, I thought I’d give you a little pre-trip rundown of the London shopping stops on my list, and the goods I’m hoping to have in my suitcase when I board my flight back home. Read on
