Portobello Road

Having moved further out of London now means that we have to make a little bit more effort at the weekend when we want to go to places that were right on our doorstep all along, but it makes it feel like we really did something with our day, which is always a good thing.

All summer I’d been meaning to go and take in all the instagrammable pastel houses of Notting Hill, but it never really happened until the other weekend. Paul and I decided to venture to Portobello Road to check out the market and the Farm Girl Cafe I’d seen online a few days earlier…

Wrapping up warm against the January chill, we got off at Ladbroke Grove and walked up towards Portobello, passing stalls selling succulents, which were only narrowly avoided. I also resisted the urge to stock up on vintage nik naks, but I had to go and check out Alice’s Antiques (you know, the one that was in Paddington?), which was overflowing with everything imaginable.

Once we’d gotten too cold, we found the Farm Girl Cafe for a well needed avocado on toast and a cup of tea to warm up. I was tempted by the Rose Latte, but then chickened out at the last minute! Maybe I’ll be braver next time…

As for the new backpack, I had an itch that was not going away once I’d seen it on Alex’s instagram. To be perfectly honest, Radley is not a brand I usually look to for a new bag, but the shape, leather and minimal gold branding won me over and the fact it was in the sale sealed the deal…
