London adventures in Spring

Back in April I left my two favourite humans at home and hopped on a train for a day to be 'just Charlotte'. The beautiful Alice met me at St Pancras and we started our adventure and headed to Victoria tube station to visit Peggy Porschen for some pink frosted treats and a catch up.
We arrived when our tummies started to rumble and ordered ourselves a pot of tea and a stunning pastel pink slice of deliciousness. I had a piece of Lemon, Raspberry and Rose cake whilst Alice enjoyed a slice of their classic Glorious Victoria. We had a good catch up on life over much needed breakfast tea.
So Peggy Porschen is my new favourite place. Not only are their cakes the most beautiful and delicious I have ever had, the whole place is a pink dream! Everything is pink!
After a good old natter, in between mouthfuls of cake, we set off to Borough Market for some browsing and ... more food!
Stalls of fresh fruit and vegetables, produce, cakes, doughnuts, turkish delight and homemade scotch eggs tempted me all afternoon long but we settled for fish finger sandwiches because we just cannot refuse them!
After spending some pocket money on turkish delight we wandered the little streets of London and went exploring.
We also did a little bit of shopping, spending some of my birthday vouchers on Jo Malone perfume, dresses and pretties. It was lovely to buy myself some things for myself for a change. Something other than shampoo or cake!!
We popped into Liberty and browsed the delicious chocolate shop (I refrained!) and then down to Carnaby street for a visit to Monki and a stop for tea before catching my train.
I had such a lovely day out. We have already planned our next adventure together in the big city - We want to picnic on Primose Hill with cupcakes from Primose bakery and to wander amongst the pastel lined houses, eat good food and go to a gallery or a museum.
I cannot wait.


Do you have any favourite London tea and cake stops and cute wanders for lovely snaps?

  2. This looks like the absolute perfect day to focus on yourself - what an amazing schedule and great places to have visited - heck yes.
    I had a similar day last winter taking the train to Prague sans dog for shopping and good eats, but this looks even better ;)

    1. A train to Prague sans dog for delicious food and a little retail therapy sounds like the ideal trip to me.

  3. This is so lovely! I also love PP, pink everywhere, what's not to love! I used to really love The Vintage Emporium in Shoreditch unfortunately it's closed (sad face). Other than that, Farm Girls, in Notting Hill is super cute too. Aaand they make rose and lavender lattes! What a dream! Xx from Paris!
