Hi, hello and Hey(o^^o)
So, more great tip to YOU who want to experience the London of vintage, bohemian, crazy and with a touch of Japan…. Ofcourse;)
Camden street market
You go by Northern line (black) to Camden Town and pow!! There you are, in the center of a hurricane(*^_^*）
Small crazy shops everywhere with amazingly loads of… lets just say everything!
T-shirt stands, arts, vinyles (someone got thrilled), cellphone covers, bags and fooooood! Oh My God! Delish everywhere. I dont know what it is but I always get so hungry when Im abroad?
Back home I can go a whole day without eating but here! I can eat ALL THE TIME;)
I just LOVE crazy stores and jup, in Camden I found one of the best!
Imagin you are going out on a raveparty, but its daytime and instead of a dansfloor there is glow-in-the-dark shelves with furry futuristic pieces of clothes and instead of a bar, a registre with glow-in-the-dark skulls and makeup! I bought ledbaloons♡
London ♡ oh My god!
I didnt know! So close to Sweden and with Ryan Air fairly cheap there is a city full of surprises(o^^o)
Dont get me wrong, Tokyo is My Love, but its nice to know somewhere close but yet soo nice:)
My cousine, bless him, lives at Bacon street JUST by Brick Lane!
This street is just amazing☆
Here is My travelguide for you that dont just want to see BigBen and so on:
1) Vintage Emporium
This might be the most genuine vintage café place in the world! A lovely couple owns this place which takes you back to the 20th century in old England.
The small café is crammed with furniture from amazing ages and they serve the best Yoghurt and müsli I have ever tasted as breakfast! They also have 3 dogs that comes in three sizes and blend right in♡
Donwnstaires in the basement they have a vintage shop. The most delightful place with rare items and gorgeous hats! I fell in love and bought myself a darling English vintage hat from the 40s. The owners are collectors so they have such love for each item!
2) Brick Lane
How can I have missed this street before? Here you have small vintage shops in all sizes together with foodcorners, street art everywhere and so many cool stylish people and their fashion. Upper half is all shopping and further down is lots of Indian restaurant!
On syndays this whole street becames a market!! Just lovely♡
3) Soho – Carnaby street
Well, while I have left My darling in the Vinyl district of Soho, I walk around and end up in paradise!
Carnaby street is like a shopping dream for me:) There is Make Up Store, Monki, Cheap Monday, MUJI & IRREGULARE!
These shoes My dear readers are not just shoes! They are artwork! I tried on every single pair they had (almost, poor staff) and finally I bought a pair that will match My new hat(*^_^*）
I will hit you with more tips later but now, work is calling!
Oh I forgot to mention, Im at National Radio this whole week.
Every morning 6:45 Im beeing called up by Sveriges Radio and they are interviewing me about me, myself and Japan(^_−)−☆
If your not a morning person or not live in Sweden, you can just visit here
and you can read, listen and check out My pictures.
If you spot Japan anywhere on the site its probably me saying something(*^_^*）
Check it out and give me some feedback ne!
This Monday I started working again after a 3-week long summervacation.
Today, Wednesday, London is calling so tonight Me and my love is of to stay at My cousines plays who lives at Bacon Street
We have no intention of sightseeing, nope. We want to eat delicious curry, walk around soho, drop in to some great anime-shops and have sushi in Hyde Park. MAYBE see something related to the olympic games. (^_−)−☆
I mean its there and it might be hard NOT to get in to the atmosfear of this big event:)
We will also see one of our dear friends, Mr Yutaka-san, who is there in work!
So, its basically a lighter Japan-trip(^_-)
MRj has his B-day coming up and London is My gift to him this year!
