Notting Hill charm.
Well, I'm all out of clean clothes which means its time to go home to New York (and my guy). I fell in love with London over the past few days and its cool, quirky charm. I knew I would, and it's pretty much exactly how I pictured London to be but the genuine Brits with their adorable accents and idioms really won me over. I'm sad to leave my little sis behind and am already planning my next trip as I'll be needing another London-fix soon. Here are the last of my photos... until next time!
Wearing my new Abbey Road Beattles tee that I bought at a t-shirt stand on Portabello Road partially because I thought it was cool and partially because I was down to my last clean shirt.
Sampling scents at the Diptyque boutique in Notting Hill.
I could have spent an entire afternoon here (and be sure to grab tea in the cafe).
This checkered tile and pale blue door made me smile.
I passed by this Mini almost everyday... isn't he a cutie?
