Lifestyle | We're loving... London this Autumn

Living near and in, and working in London, we both have too many choices of things to eat, places to see and experiences to enjoy on our doorstep. And, as with all blogging duo things, the fact that we can do everything as a pair makes it twice as fun! Here is our pick of a few autumn favourites...
Whenever we meet up for a special occasion and extended chat - for any reason in fact - we usually head to Browns in Covent Garden. Taking advantage of their special offers is a really savvy way to enjoy great food in a luxurious and indulgent environment.

We love the Parisian feel and great English food here, très PPOMG! Our favourites include the entire menu of signature cocktails, salmon fishcakes, chocolate brownie and eton mess. The sticky toffee pudding is an old favourite, and last we checked, home made. Mmmm...
A new favourite is the Inspiral cafe in Camden. Fantastic for vegans, veggies, those needing 'Free From' food and something actually nutritious, don't be put off by the crazy exterior. This little cafe has gorgeous views of the river and some proper tasty fayre. We love getting a mixed lunchtime bowl (veggies, rice, lentils - we promise they're tasty) and watching sleepy narrow boats ponder in and out of the lock.

Following Flic's recent career move to Camden Market, we've found so many amazing things. Vintage suitcases from £30 (yes, really), handmade jewellery, stunning vintage, ethically sourced designs from all over the world, scarves in every print and colour you can imagine, pop up shops and some great food (admittedly more around the Lock than the Stables) but Seawise for seafood is definitely worth the trip, and a visit to the Camden Sweet Co. next door is definitely a good idea for your old English favourites!

This month we were lucky enough to attend a preview show of Urinetown at The Apollo Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue. We definitely don't want to give the story away- for a sneak peek check out the trailer below- but we implore you to go and enjoy its fabulous story, incredible score and brilliant one liners!

The cast were incredible with the two female leads Jenna Russell and Rosanna Hyland giving cause for applause with their amazing vocal abilities!

One of our favourite places to wander around and get lost in is the V&A museum. We love heading down to their beautiful exhibitions, with Italian Fashion and the recent Wedding Dress shows being notable favourites. However, their newest exhibition is our favourite to date.

Horst: Photographer of Style celebrates the work of Horst P. Horst in a 4 room collection of his greatest work. Perhaps the most notable Vogue photographer of all time, the work of Horst stretches across sixty years and he snapped some of the most famous and beautiful models ever.

Horst: Photographer of Style is at the V&A until 4th January 2015 and is a great exhibition for those on a budget- tickets are no more than £10, and for those who love fashion and style, it is a must! We also dare you to leave the incredible gift shop empty handed...

What are your London tips this Autumn? Keen to hear from everyone for anything unmissable!

  1. One of the best parts about living in or near a big city is how much there is to do. I live in a very foodie area of the San Francisco Bay, and I have a hard time imagining giving up my Indian, Chinese, Burmese, and Japanese food to move to a small town! Aren't we spoiled :)
