You asked for it and it is here - the life in London segment of the blog along with a vlog. It has been in the works for six months now; I just did not have the content (or time). That was until a few weeks ago when I had a rare day off work. I had an appointment that was set to take all day but was done by mid-day. Perfect time to check things off my London bucketlist.
First stop - the pretty cafe that has graced your instafeed at least once (even if you live under a rock). I went in part for the pretty facade but also for the food. Peggy Porschen is known as much for this pretty facade as it is for its cakes and beverages.
I had the hot chocolate that was almost too pretty to drink and a slice of one of the signature cakes. The hot chocolate was divine but the cake was a bit too dry for me. I think it must have been the flavor I selected. No matter, the hot chocolate, and the pretty facade more than made up for it. London had a very atypical spring weather so I sat outside and enjoyed the city pass me by. I took a million snapshots of the cafe and my food so prepare for insta-overload.
After about two hours, I talked myself into leaving - there was still a lot of time left in the day, so I visitied the Victoria and Albert museum (which I one of my favorite museums. You know I got a ton of snapshots, but I also managed to vlog parts of the day (and the rest of that week). All in all an excellent way to spend an afternoon off. Watch the vlog of the day (and rest of that weekend via the link below and don't forget to subscribe).
