London baby

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(*^_^*)

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!

One store I will visit is AmiAmi.

Last weekend in Tokyo.. for this time

Pre-Halloween in Tokyo

Tokyo Halloween

Im sorry Im writing this so late, but I need to tell you about my last weekend in Tokyo before reality and my trip back to Sweden takes ahold of me. The picture above is from my Sayonara party! I had it together with my darling friend Bameis birthday party.
A funny note; tanyoubi, which means birthday in japanse has a funny meaning, which ofcourse is congratulations for being born BUT also sayonara because you get departured from your mother. SO, this collaboration of Birthday party and Sayonara party went under the name TANYOUBI PARTY! ❤

This was the weekend before Halloween but I really love dress out/up so we had a pre-halloween theme and I was one from the Night of the living dolls.

The evening started 7pm in Roppongi at OZ CAFE
