One sunny weekend in September my boyfriend's brother came to London for a visit, so I devised a plan to show him the best bits. Some of these were old haunts and some were new to me but all in all it was a great day. I spent about two hours getting ready in the morning, not because it takes me that long to get ready but because my boyfriend and his brother didn't get out of bed until the early afternoon after a night of heavy brotherly drinking. I digress, the point is, I put on waaay too much eyeliner and mascara, as well as a couple of super cute temporary tattoos from Hello Harriet and Fickle. The outfit on the other hand is one I wear almost all the time, I have about four tops I regularly layer under this dress when it gets cooler.
In this post I thought I'd share a couple of the places we visited, which are also some of my favourite places in London. I hope you're inspired to visit them!

First stop to cure a couple of hangovers: buffalo wings from Sticky Wings. This is a restaurant I often stop at after People Tree events, it's only a block away and delicious, I can't resist. Make sure to try the ranch dress, it's incredible.
This was the first time I visited Gelupo but I have been back several times since, my favourite ice cream cafe in London. The ice cream flavours change from day to day and there are several ways to enjoy the ice cream. My favourite is a scoop of ice cream served floating in hot chocolate, yum! Also a great place if you prefer sorbet over ice cream, there's a healthy spread of both.
