London Calling: Part II

Ok friends…Here is part two of the London trip!


We ate at this awesome place called Nando’s. It’s a grilled chicken restaurant (a chain) famous for their spicy sauces that they marinate the chicken in. We had heard about this place because several famous soccer players like it (and Tweet about it), so Jason decided we had to check it out. We had initially tried it once before (a year ago) when we were in Vancouver. It’s really delicious, and we were excited to get a tasty Nando’s fix while we were in London!

Another Pam Hiran necklace that I adore (you can find it at Anthropologie). The intricacies of her hand-beaded necklaces are just gorgeous!

Gorgeous London at night! We took a beautiful night stroll over the bridge one evening.



Our last day in London (before our flight back home), we rented bikes and biked all around the city (although mainly Hyde Park). Biking around the city was just exceptional! I highly recommend it. In Europe, several cities have public bike stations set up where you can rent bikes. I think it’s fabulous!



A friend of ours had recommended that we visit an outdoor vintage market/farmers market called Covent Garden. It was just lovely! There was a great mix of designer shops and beautiful boutiques but also fun vintage stands set up. As we were strolling through the marketplace I told Jason that I would love to find something with character, something different that stood out to me. There was so much beautiful vintage stuff. I came upon a fun spider pin with Swarovski crystals. It was something different, and fun! Just what I was looking for!

Cheers! Nothing like drinking Guinness in the UK or Ireland! Just tastes so much better! We stopped at this pub to grab a drink before the Liverpool vs. Reading game. So much fun!


This tiny little Liverpool uniform that we bought for our future niece!
