London Love

Last month, I took a little holiday over the pond.  Here are just a few highlights from an amazing trip to London and Harrogate.

Birthday Dinner at my favorite London restaurant, La Petite Maison; Best Sunday Ritual – Sunday Roast at The Pig and Butcher; wedding gown shopping with @urbanflipflops at Brown’s Bride; wedding venue shopping at Fulham Palace with @urbanflipflops.

Getting to know the Islington neighborhood with @urbanflipflops; The Queen by Lego at Hamleys; design inspiration at Selfridges.

A majestic peacock in Holland Park; Baccarat chandeliers at One Marylebone, a spectacular London wedding venue; House of Dior exhibit at Harrods – beautiful and inspiring; cheese-flavored macaron at La Cave a Fromage – genius.

Home Sweet Home at Betty’s Harrogate and The Valley Gardens Harrogate; Columbia Road Flower Market; the truly stunning Renaissance St. Pancras, my London home.

And, the jewel in the crown, seeing Dame Helen Mirren in The Audience.  Truly incredible performance and a must-see if you are planning to be in London before June!!!
