My week in pictures

Instagram

Living in London is always an exciting and colourful experience and I share my life in real time as much as possible via Instagram.

I love writing a Lifestyle blog and my experiences are always rather eclectic –   I’m often adding pictures of the latest café I’ve visited, new little shop I’ve discovered or the outfit I’m wearing.. l’m love the hidden corners of London and when I find a sparkly one, I share that too…

Here is my week (last week) in pictures and if you want to hop on board my Instagram train, you can find me here.

All the below photos are taken on my iPhone 5s – what a clever phone it is…

Love this little car - I see it all over my neighbourhood and last Saturday it was parked right outside my lovely local butcher.

I've become much better at packing light, so whenever I'm out for the night I make sure I take this hair-saving conditioner with me. Kerastase Cristaliste is the name. Don't wear it out.

Welcome Polpo, to the neighbourhood! They’ve only just arrived and I snapped them on Tuesday afternoon on Notting Hill Gate. Polpo is a Bàcaro – a Venetian word to describe a humble restaurant serving simple food and good, young local wines.

Wednesday morning took me to Southwark for the Yoo Design furniture launch at Harrods. This is the view coming up the escalator at Southwark station…bit spacey, eh?

Watching the clever people at YOO Design demonstrate their new technology at Harrods - see your furniture in your own homes before you buy it. You might be thinking of the IKEA idea.. but trust me, this is a whole lot more swanky.
