Portabello Road

One of my favourite places in London is the hectic, bustling Portabello Road and its markets.

From antiques to food, vintage fashion to costume jewelry, it’s another shopping (and happy snappers) delight.

Whether you’re after a refreshing drink of coconut water, some eye wateringly pricey fungi or just fancy indulging in a little pastry heaven, you’re bound to find it in this crowded, sprawling shoppers paradise.

I was a woman on a mission, after some hand carved wooden print blocks to display in my printer’s case. But that doesn’t mean I couldn’t get totally sidetracked by other shiny lovely (tasty)things!

This time it included my FIRST EVER taste of a macaroon (lemon) – gorgeous (fitted in my mouth whole) – amazing!

And the discovery of a side shop stacked high with door knobs *quivers with excitement*

There’s hand knitted Rastafarian hats, hot hot chillies and every conceivable trimming, feather and sequin on the haberdashery stall.

Not to mention Paella, continental cakies and quiches. My stomach is grumbling just thinking about it. (Salivating as I type).
