Estée and I both had a day off so we decided to just take a look around Soho since she still has not fully explored it.
We started off by going to Oxford Circus and quickly getting away from the madness of Oxford Street by heading south.
Up ahead is Liberty, oh how I wish I could get a few pieces from their basement which has a great menswear selection.
Thought it would be nice to show a photo of one of my favourite stores- Monki!
If you don't live near one, you've probably heard about it so maybe this will KIND of tide you over?
That or make it so much worse, haha!
(Thats right, twist that knife Estée.)
This was inside a quaint little vintage shop in Soho.
Can't remember the name (sorry).
It's a store along Berwick Street where the market usually is.
They had a really nice shirt I wanted to buy for Goose, but he says vintage isn't his "thing."
He's too cool, man.
Here are some CRAZY lashes!
I can't even wear normal ones, so imagine the hard time I'd have wearing these feathery creations!
I just HAD to put this photo in!
SO BRITISH IT HURTS! I'm really beginning to love London!
Ahem...excuse the Dutch flag in the middle of the photo.
Crispins in Chinatown is a great place to go if you want to pick up some Americana sweets and snacks.
Here i am reaching for my favourite Deluxe Kraft Dinner!
I just couldn't bear to spend over £5 on one box, though.
Guess I'll have to stock up next time I go home to Canada!
Mmmmm...Jiffy! If you don't know, I am obsessed with peanut butter and the super sweet and creamy American kind (lets keep on subject here) is the best!
BALL CAKE LOL!
How old are we again?
Wonkeys! My favourite place to eat in Chinatown. Where you are forced to sit on the same table with complete strangers, the waiters are rude and the food is most mediocre. I don't know why but I always crave it, oh and its fairly cheap.
What is your favourite Chinatown restaurant?
Classy sellotaped menu.
Cash only in a tourist filled centrally located restaurant huh?
Nothing suspicious here. I seriously think that this is the biggest money laundering front for the Chinese gangs in London.
Beautiful photo taken by Estée.
Did I mention you get free green tea here?
Crispy fried seaweed! My favourite, especially here since they add so much sugar.
We popped into Cyber Candy & these intrigued be quite a bit.
Didn't end up buying them (imagine your BREATH), but I might have to go back!
We ended up spending the whole afternoon and a bit of the evening just loitering about Soho and I think Estée now has a much better idea of the area so it was worth the effort.
Can you guys think of some interesting places that might tempt us back to Soho?
