These pictures are not a reflection on yesterday, but the words are.
Yesterday, and today too, have been filled with packing. Packing to go back to Boston, which means my summer at home, in London, is coming to a close. I have loved being at home but I am SO ready to go back.
I knew that when the time came to head back to Boston I would be ready, but the readiness is actually overwhelming. I'm feeling really motivated to get back into school and other exciting projects. I'm really excited for what this year is going to bring.
These pictures are from a couple of weeks ago when mother and I headed to Notting Hill to test out the Farm Girl Cafe.
Just a few pics of me acting like a tourist in my own city... Ahh to live in a pretty pink home in Notting Hill. (Especially one with a palm tree outside.)
Farm Girl is location just off Portobello Road and the decor is so fun. Unfortunately it was a little too chilly to sit outside but I absolutely love the courtyard they have.
I went for avocado toast with a poached egg. Yes those are strawberries on top of my avocado toast which was a bizarre yet tasty mix. The avocado was sooo good but personally I felt that the bread to avocado ratio was more than slightly off, far too much avo for me.
Even in such a vast and bustling city as London I still manage to bump into a familiar face on every corner, and Farm Girl was no different.
Of course we had to give their famous rose water infused coffee a try. They also have a lavender one which I'd definitely try next time! This time we opted for one coffee of the flower orientation and one regular flat white.
Notting Hill is a very special part of London. It's not an area I tend to venture to on the regular but I really do love it. It's very chic but also tranquil at the same time.
... in regards to the shows you are going to see. I wouldn't say it's necessary to plan your whole trip but it is nice to know where your day is heading. In my opinion, it's best to do a quick and jam packed trip, which means back to back shows. So just have a think about what you want to see when you get up in the morning.
We saw 15 shows in three days.
That being said, if you ever have spare time it's definitely worth heading to a box office and asking what's on in the next hour and overall what they recommend.
I continue talk about my love and, almost, need to document things. I consistently do this through photographs. However, I do not feel fulfilled through the documentation of these photographs with minimal text. I want to continue to document my outfits and my travels but I want to increase the documentations of my thoughts and feelings.
(I didn't want to do a post without photos, so here are some cute photobooth pics I found of myself.)
