Happy Monday Dolls! I can’t believe it’s been an entire week since Jason and I returned from our latest European adventure.
First stop on our travels was London! I hadn’t been in many years, and this was Jason’s first trip, so we know it would be an exciting experience for us to share.
We stayed at the beautiful St. Martin’s Lane hotel which was centrally located and just the right amount of trendy and luxurious. Thanks you to St. Martin’s for the beautiful accommodations and surprising us with champagne and strawberries when we arrived. I also love this hotel because it houses Asia de Cuba, which is one of my favorite restaurants, known for its flavorful fusion of Asian and Latin cuisine. Yum!
Overall, we had an amazing time in London, seeing the sights and eating everything within sight! My perfect vacation is a combination of gallery-hopping, local restaurants, and of course – shopping! This trip was just that. Some of my favorite restaurants we visited included Albion, Berner’s Tavern, Sketch, Hutong, and Cecconi’s.
After a morning brunching in Shoreditch, we spent the afternoon shopping in the unique and eclectic boutiques. I picked up my new favorite sweatshirt which is equal parts comfy and girl-power inspiring. I’m actually wearing it as I type this – so I can definitely see it becoming a staple for relaxation-wear this Fall.
Other highlights of the trip included the breathtaking view from The Shard, and the Saatchi Gallery where we enjoyed a Rolling Stones exhibition. Jason and I loved that we were able to experience the combination of our two passions together – art and music. And of course, we couldn’t leave London without an afternoon and leisurely lunch at the Tate Modern. What was the best part of our trip to London? Just experiencing a new place with friends and family. Check back in this week to read about our Dublin adventure. Cheers!
