In Marylebone for a bit of sightseeing and neverending shopping. Popped by Langham place – best known for being home to BBC, London College of Fashion, and Roux at the Landau. Langham Place at Westminster is severely underrated. I love the wide selection of liberal brands: Tracey Neuls, Schuh, H&M’s Collection of Style, Hoss Intropia and Liberty of London. You also have your staples: Topshop, Urban Outfiters, Niketown, Uniqlo, Swatch, Pull & Bear, Alessi and Banana Republic.
Also good for its night scene: King & Queen, Artesian, The Crown & Sceptre, as well as The Adam and Eve.

Of many the indie and chain coffee joints along Oxford Circus,
I’ve made a list of 3 cafès I have to try when I’m back
(because seriously, I want to but can’t be downing too much caffeine)
Dying for a mid-day coffee fix, I was so glad to see that it’s been labelled ‘London’s best coffee’.
Though small and subtle, the interior decor is amazingly cosy. A really awesome place to sit and read while sharing a bench-table with strangers.
Before I left, the barista asked if I’d be here the next day and I said, sadly no.
Firstly I can’t remember the way.
Secondly I will be sniffing out cafès along Notting Hill in the ‘moro!

Every Saturday, Cabbages and Frocks Market takes over the grounds of Marylebone Parish Church. Brainchild of the organisers of the London Fashion Designer Sales, there’s a good mix of stalls selling everything from oils and balsamic vinegars to hand made jewellery and vintage designer wear.
