Twelve hours in London


When I visited London recently for London Fashion Week, I had lots of time to go shopping and explore before the Teresita Orillac SS16 show, so I got off at the Oxford Circus tube stop and had a walk down Oxford Street, I came across Liberty and I couldn't help myself but go inside the beautiful Tudor style building.

For someone who leaves buying Christmas presents until the week before, I found out that Christmas is well and truly on its way when I visited the 4th floor of the Liberty store. It got me feeling very festive and looking forward to the Christmas break. The decorations were fantastic, in fact every corner I turned was full of beautiful items, I especially loved the home interior section, it's made me really want to redecorate my bedroom, even though I only decorated it a few months ago.

A great way to spend a Sunday, is by checking out the local markets. So as a lover of vintage bargains I stopped off at Liverpool Street Station and went to the Spitalfields market in search of some unique garments. Brick Lane is also great for some cheap vintage clothing.

On Brick Lane we walked past loads of people sitting on the road side enjoying their Sunday lunch, all the different foods smelt and looked delicious, unfortunately I had already eaten at Pizza Express beforehand so I missed out on some street food.

After visiting a couple of shops I went exploring and found this old building on Princelet Street, after speaking to a guy standing outside I found out the building is currently being used as a film set, it would be cool to watch when it airs as the place did have a very spooky feeling about it and the attention to detail on the window display was really good too.

I am a big fan of street art and as Brick Lane is well known for it, I had a little stroll around the streets to check it out before getting the tube to Convent Garden for the LFW show (see post here).
