A Long Weekend In London

While the memory is still fresh, here's a little recap of my past weekend in London. This was my first time back in the UK since last summer and my first destination of this year's European itinerary. From sightseeing, shopping, steak dinners and bicycle trips around the city, to chasing the best rooftop bars and photo shooting fashion campaigns - my eight time in London was undoubtedly packed with exciting moments! 

I arrived quite late on Thursday so Rickie and I just spent the evening watching the football and eating fish and chips at The Nine Elms Tavers. Probably one of the best ones I've had so far, just saying. On Friday I was mostly wandering around sightseeing by myself while R was at work, so I managed to revisit a few sights to take some photos, get some shopping done and get hungry for our dinner in SOHO. We went for ramen noodles at a new restaurant that I can't even recall the name, before heading to a pub nearby and to watch Wales vs. Belgium in the UEFA Euro 2016 quarter final. I love watching football (I've been playing it since I was 11 years old), but I hate drinking beer, so I'm not fully immersed into the British pub-culture quite yet.  

On Saturday the 2nd of July, I was invited to attend the photoshoot for NewYorkers Fashion's upcoming fitness campaign. It was a completely new experience for me and I felt very honoured to be able to take apart of it. I won't say too much about it, but it was a fun day and I'm pretty excited to see the final results.

After the shoot I met up with Rickie in Broadway Market, a lovely street filled with food stalls and everything vintage in the heart of Hackney. I was so tempted to eat everything, as usual. From here we rented the city bikes and biked along the Regent's canal, which gave me flashbacks on our time in Little Venice back in September 2014. Time flies in good company! 

In the evening we decided to go to Frank's Café in Peckham, a pop-up on the roof of a multi-storey carpark. I was told the view there was amazing and I couldn't agree more when we finally arrived. Definitely one of the many highlights of this trip! The food and drinks were delicious too. Nothing but good vibes with my bestest.
