Postcards From London

Last week I enjoyed some sunny days strolling around the streets of the English Capital. Here are a few snapshots from my trip...

Exploring the streets surrounding Borough Market. After graduating I spent a summer working for The Southwark Film Office. I have always loved this area of London, good memories came flooding back.

I sat and drank coffee at The Curzon, Soho. Perfect spot for a good bit of people watching. I think Soho is a very special place.


The best exhibition I have been to in a long time - 'Pioneers of the Downtown Scene' New York, 1970s. The Barbican Art Gallery. On Until 22nd May 2011. Go see!

Postcards purchased at The Tate Modern - (clockwise from top - 1.Gerda Steiner & Jorg Lenzlinger 'Das vegetative Nervensystem', 2006; 2. Wolfgang Tillmans 'Rosen' 1994; 3.Kiki Smith 'Pool of Tears 2, 2000).

Colourful balloons at my friend Eilidh's house. Eilidh Greig is an exceptionally talented stylist and now works as Junior Fashion Editor at GQ Style. Oh the glamour. Exciting times!

I went to see 'The Umbrellas of Cherbourg' at The Gielgud Theatre. I absolutely loved the set design and all the wonderful little props.

A very delicious lunch at Pattisserie Deux Amis, before a trip to the 'DIRT' Exhibition at The Wellcome Collection.

I went to visit my lovely friend Emma Newton at the stall she runs at Spitalfield's Thursday Antiques Market. She very kindly gave me these beautiful coasters that she transformed into hanging ornaments. I purchased the ribbon from VV Rouleaux. I am still mourning the loss of their Glasgow store, so I had to take a trip to Marylebone Lane. A girl simply can't own too much ribbon.

It looks like you have had a lovely time down in London.....I can't wait till my next trip. I'm hoping to go the Olympics and see the rowing, but it would be great to go to London before then.
