In our little holiday-from-home week one of the things I wanted to do was experience bits of London I've always wanted to go to, but haven't. They were still really rather touristy things in the end, but a change from my perpetual visits to the V&A museum. So yesterday Andy and I had a fantastic day out in London, going shopping in Portobello Road, followed by dinner and theatre in Southbank at the Wonderground. We went to see an incredible show called' Limbo' which, if you live around London, I would highly recommend. It's a circus type show with acrobatic, magic and fire breathing and sword swallowing, all accompanied by excellent pulsing and energising music. Also, the girl who does the fire-breathing was seriously hot. I think she has stolen a little bit of my heart with her cheeky grin and amazing tattoos.
|In Portobello Road: a shop only selling pastel coloured things. I can think of some bloggers who would love that place!|
|Vintage camera stall.|
|I have always and forever wanted a rocking horse. One day.|
|I love the way antique stalls are collections of collections. This one had sections of globes, soap dishes, lawn bowls. compasses, bicycle rings and more.|
|Hard to believe these vintage suitcases were real. With the sticker covering they look like cartoon suitcases belonging to a caricature.|
|After mentioning I had no watch in my last post I did pick up this little gem on Portobello market on a mixture of absolute whimsy and being unable to back away from market salespeople after they have made me try it on!|
|Open up public allotments along Southbank.|
