Holidays in London

I love the Christmas holidays – the build up to it is always magical and London just lights up. This year, sadly, I only had one week off from work so, of course, I had to make the most of my time.

There are brunches, lunches and dinners to be had, shops to be browsed, museums to be visited and lots of relaxation to be done at home.

On one of the few sunny days during the holidays, I met one of my friends in Notting Hill for brunch and then a trip to the Victoria & Albert Museum (one of my favourite museums in London!).

We found this cute place called Bluebelles on Portobello Road. The menu has decent variety and the place has a quaint, chilled out vibe. My friend ordered Eggs Royale and I ordered the Green Breakfast which I loved – guacamole with eggs? Who knew!

After visiting two exhibitions at the V&A, Fabric of India and Bejewelled Treasures, which were both great (sadly photography wasn’t allowed!), we headed to a cafe nearby called La Pâtisserie des Rêves for coffee. Everything was pink which was mainly the attraction 🙂IMG_0388IMG_0387

Hot chocolate for my friend which was amazing – cappuccino for me

All in all, a perfect day!
