London Markets Columbia Road

Monday, July 28th, 2014

Every weekend, we tend to head to one of the many markets around London.  Columbia Road Flower Market is by far on the top of my list.  Natasha in the above picture shared that she comes to Columbia Road market every Sunday to get flowers for her home and garden.  Natasha recommends that the print store Ryantown is not to be missed.

If you plan on coming to the market, be sure to get there very early (before 10am) or very late (1-1:30pm).  The benefit to getting there early is that you beat the crowds and get first pick at the flowers and goodies from the antique market.  You can grab a coffee at Printers & Stationers, browse the flowers and leisurely pop in and out of the stores on Columbia Road. Come 11 or noon, it’s hard to move.  However, by getting there a bit later, you do save on the flowers as the merchants want to take a minimum amount of stock home with them.

To get to the market, you can take the Overground to Hoxton or Shoreditch and walk over to Columbia Road.

London Marathon Photos

Monday, April 14th, 2014

We headed to South East London to watch the Marathon yesterday. Canary Wharf (where these photos were taken), was packed as you can imagine. The crowd felt afamiliar, as I always loved heading into the Copley Square area in Boston for the Boston Marathon. Can you tell I’m a little homesick? Leave it to a marathon to make me feel homesick.

Say Fromage!

I was on assignment this year and thus missed the Vogue Festival.   But while I couldn’t be there, my friend Tom at Say Fromage was kind enough to send me photos to share with you.

Check out the line for Tom’s photo-booth!  Wouldn’t a photo-booth be a fun thing to have at a party or wedding.  We’re having a Halloween party and having Tom there would be just perfectt.
