I’m a little late posting this one, I was supposed to post this back in February. However, better late than never, right?!
I was actually inspired to write this after a lovely reader was binge-reading my London posts and leaving comments saying she found them helpful. As well as thinking to myself, how much I enjoy writing about my ventures around London.
For those who don’t know, I moved further away, on the outskirts of Hertfordshire over two years ago, but it takes only twenty-five minutes to get into London by train. I’m really fortunate to have London so close by and I really don’t make the most of going in enough, but that has to change!
Any who… My best friend and I had a day in London together back in February. We walked all around London stepping over 20,000 steps.
We started off in Knightsbridge, wandered around the infamous Harrods – we spent hours in there!
Harrods had one of my favourite artist’s collaborating with one of the incredible well-known fashion designers. Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama. It took over the whole of Harrods on the outskirts and some little bits inside. At the time I was searching for ages trying to get the Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama cakes but I sadly couldn’t find.
I’ve been a BIG BIG fan of Yayoi Kusama since she exhibited back in 2010 or 2011 I believe? You’d have to scroll all the way to the back-end of my Instagram to see images of the exhibition if you’re curious.
So yes, I was SUPER happy when Harrods made a big thing of her infamous polka dots.
Harrods is always great for browsing, I did buy my husband two ‘longboys’ from the food court, but other than that, just dreamed of all the things I wish I could have afforded.
Next we walked from Harrods, Knightsbridge to Chelsea. For some scrumptious sushi at Sticks n Sushi.
I’d been meaning to check out Sticks n Sushi for yonks and it did not disappoint.
And then made our way to Battersea to see the Battersea Power Station. I sadly didn’t get any snaps of Battersea as my phone ran out of battery. However, it’s really great for shopping! Definitely going to go back there at some point.
So, that was our adventure day out in London, I hope you enjoyed reading it.
I hope to visit London more during Spring and Summer. I’m possibly going to Wimbledon for the first time ever, but need to do a bit more planning!
