To London, To London – Jiggidy Jig

My first weekend back in London just happened to be a glorious four day Easter weekend and even though I was bummed that one of my latest and greatest besties was being forcibly removed (or so I would like to think) from the country, we decided to make a crazy fun (inevitably boozy and foodie) weekend out of it.

We started out with a standard touristy trip to Borough market (which is the best):

We purchased coffee and baked goods

Took a Shard selfie

Then headed for a walk along the River Thames…

Julie captured this classic… me on my phone… without pants…

So in return, I caught her in all of her glory!

We took more selfies

But actually asked someone to take a picture of us with Big Ben

This girl belongs in London

We slowly made our way to a fabulously fabulous afternoon tea (so British) at the Rose Lounge at the Sofitel:

After our leisurely afternoon tea, we made our way home to rest before rallying the troops to go out for drinks in Soho.

We rally with popsicles in vodka and Rihanna.

No pictures were taken out at drinks but we got snacky at 2am and ended up at a Soho diner for our middle of the night meal of steak and eggs:

Heaven help us.

On Easter Sunday, we had divine brunch reservations at Chiltern Firehouse –

Finishing up our drinks in the Firehouse

After brunch, we made our way to the hotel bar/reception area for another cocktail…

Sun so bright this star needed her sunnies

Gahhhh please come back!

Such a lush Easter Sunday – couldn’t have been happier.

On Monday, we ventured out to Notting Hill and Portobello Road.

Shall we buy the purple house or the red house? Either way, we shall paint it pink.

We are destined to be roomies… besties… soul mates…

That vest! EEK!

Sunnies, soup, cider and sass!

So sad to see this girl go… London won’t be the same. (But for real, either come back or I am moving to Austin…)
