bloggers in soho!



The second half of my bloggy date with Raquel was fun, blessed with setting sunshine, and well, rather funny. I hadn't been to teh touristy Central London locations yet since I arrived, and my usual routine is so different that it was a bit surrealistic being in Soho and Trafalgar Square again. To add bloggy stereotypes to tourist stereotypes, we also passed by the Hummingbird Bakery in Soho, which I think is a bit renowned for fashion blogger meet-ups. I'm actually not so fond of cupcakes (I don't know why, since I like cake well enough), but neither of us could pass up the red velvet ones. We got take-away and sat eating them in Trafalgar Square and then ran around being even bigger tourists until it got dark.

I'm definitely hoping I get the chance to hang out with Raquel again!

yay, fun! i don't really like cupcakes, either! what's the big deal? they're too hard to eat and they just taste like cake (which i do love, so maybe it's just a proportion thing). i like to eat my frosted treats with a fork, thank you very much!

ohhhhh elderly gentlemen and their entirely inappropriate remarks...

I remember my days in London, I miss it so much. I read that you have been in Barcelona when you will post some pictures from there ?

Catita said...

How long are you staying in London? And what are you doing there? It is such a great city, which I could join you!

Blogger meet-ups are soo fun and cool! Though my friends, those in the know, are supportive, they don't exactly relate to the whole blogging thing!


Zabrinah said...

Great post! Hehe. This is awesome how you are adding to the blogger fashion meet-up tradition!

These pictures are really great, by the way!
