Little Weekend Links 33

It’s been a while since I’ve wandered around Notting Hill, so I was was happy to spend a few hours there on Sunday afternoon. It’s an area of the city I’ve very familiar with, but there are still plenty of backstreets I’ve never explored. They also just opened a new branch of Polpo there which we were excited to try but disappointed in the end. We finished all of our thank you notes from the wedding and started honeymoon planning but we are having a tough time deciding between Japan and the Caribbean. They are so different but both appeal for different reasons. We’re not going until October so there’s still some time for planning. In the meantime, we’ve booked a pre-honeymoon long weekend in Sweden at the beginning of August so I’m very much looking forward to taking photos there. Any recommendations on places to eat, drink, shop and explore are more than welcome for Stockholm, Japan, St. Lucia or other Caribbean islands.  This weekend I’m hoping to have a pretty relaxing, quiet one with some travel magazine time and a bit of cheeky sale shopping to stock up for the upcoming honeymoon. I’ll probably also spend a bit of time working on my poor abandoned Etsy shop!

Any exciting plans on your side?

    I love doors! I think they can make or break a building. Caribbean or Japan!! You can’t go wrong with either you choose. I really want to visit St. Lucia. It looks absolutely breathtaking and lush. This weekend there are lots of plans for me and my husband, a garden visit at a certified organic restaurant, street fair and art walk. Should be a good one!

      Wow, your weekend sounds amazing! How was everything? I ended up going to a beautiful garden as well. Really lush and beautiful in the middle of London. We did some honeymoon planning and think we’re going to go ahead with St. Lucia with a side trip to Trinidad and Tobago. Can’t wait! x
