London, Baby!

It started as a crazy idea.  Half empty coffee cups, pens, and notepads strewn across the table, Alex and I faced each other, that familiar glow of the Mac computer screen illuminating our faces, as we brainstormed our 2016 collaboration plans.  The concept was a once in a lifetime trip to London and possibly Ireland.  I doubted that it would happen, but the idea made my heart flutter in excitement.  We spent a month working endlessly in secret, doing everything we could to make this crazy notion a reality.  There were so many moving parts, down to us frantically sending emails at midnight from the Vancouver airport in hopes that we’d be able to find accommodation once we landed (huge shoutout to Natasha for taking us in and letting us store our luggage at your place, you’re the best). I’d NEVER travelled with such a spontaneous, unstructured attitude, but it was incredible.  It magnifies that travel rush and gives you the overwhelming sense of being alive.  We were able to work on campaigns with both Ted Baker and We had high tea, visited friends and family, ate amazing food, drank more tea and wine and bubbly, and even vodka soda.  We experienced the ultimate luxury at Taj51 and the preferred life at The Mandeville. We spoke in horrible English accents and battled the cold February wind.  We explored new neighbourhoods, got lost, tried new restaurants, acted like tourists, and had an absolutely memorable trip.  Stay tuned for our favourite bites and sights, but for now, feast your eyes on the loveliness that is London Town!

    Love this post! I’m heading to London at the end of May and I can’t wait to read more about your trip! Also, where is the jacket in your first picture from?

    Thanks for sharing!

      I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU!!! Sorry for yelling, but really, London is the best. I have a more detailed guide coming up next week that will definitely be more of a help to you. And the faux leather jacket was an old purchase from Joe Fresh 🙂 xoxo
