I had a break from work and I wasn't going to go anywhere, but then last minute, London called. I love London because it's more or less like not going anywhere, it's even more familiar to me than Lagos. I had a list of things I wanted to do- mostly eat to be honest but then I got there and was really tired so I ended up abandoning my list and doing nothing. I walked around the city and listened to music. It's so different from this
where all I did was eat. I was really insecure about even putting up this post because it's just sooo boring, but it's exactly how the trip was. Perfect.
This was the only place on my list I actually went to. They have an excellent cookbook and blog and I had to go and try some recipes in really life. Also, amazing matcha latte!
This girl was glittering in MAC. I love that she posed when she saw the camera.
My local starbucks had these adorable drawings of their baristas on cups. Should have made them draw one of me.
I spent a lot of time with my
Muji and Paperchase are my favourite stores. I obsessively buy these notebooks, so imagine my happiness when I went and there was a stamping stand. I spent a good 20 minutes there buying and stamping things.
Just a regular day on the streets of London. Why not?
Cookies on branch birthdays
London is hardly the greenest place, but I spent so much time appreciating 'nature' because it's non-existent in this grey place called Lagos.
I actually cooked sometimes. I even made jollof rice. I never ever ever ever cook.
Ping Pong is literally the only time I went for dinner and I don't think it counts because it's ping pong. Me and
really went in though. Probably ate all the meals I should have eaten out in bowls of dim-sum.
I went on a few runs because it felt so good to run in a park!
The beginning of a deliciously messy night.
