London

I stand super impressed by the street style from London Fashion Week aw18 and the ongoing Milan fashion week aw18. My love for fashion weeks as also mentioned in my trends and street style round up post from ss18 is more for the street style and the vibe in the city than the fashion shows. So a bit off that i have missed out on two successive seasons of fashion weeks because of my sisters weddings but guess thats what life is, different priorities different times!!! Ok anyways i have been all over the internet aka instagram to check my favourite fashion girls and fashion accounts also the #lfw #londonfashionweek #mfw #milanfashionweek and got these kickass street style looks that are super chic and effortless yet super fun and interesting. No unachievable unwearable looks that can neither handle a job nor are weather appropriate, seriously those looks might make good pictures but they never inspire me. Practical fashion made special does and here it is.

The key fashion pieces spotted are 1. the heritage check 2. the pant suit 3. the beige trench 4. the vinyl trench 5. wide leg trousers/ jeans 6. the blazer 7. the hand held bag 8. the dad sneakers 9. the sock boots 10. the white boots 11. the belt on the waist

London is full of pretty places, maybe should not be even said, it is definitely the most instagram worthy city in the world. So much character, parts so distinct of each other all rocking their own vibe. New and better dazzle being added on the daily so writing an instagram guide for the city is a herculean task or should i say an unjustifiable task. Hence i call this post A girls London Instagram guide. Girls who love to chat with their girlfriends sitting in pretty places sipping tea and eating avocado toast and the likes. I will write less because Instagram is pictures so let these pictures do the talking.

1. Aubaine Selfridges - Wisteria season in London is short and sweet but Aubaine has them laden all year round. Breakfast is the best time and you can dot so at leisure. What to order - Avocado breakfast with tea and juice.  Tip to get the best shots as told by the staff, the cafe opens at 9.30 but if you reach by 9 they let you in to take pictures. Nearest tube station - Bond street

2. Peggy Porschen cakes - All seasons are done justice at peggy. But spring is got to be my favourite. Flowers and pink can’t get any better. What to order- Your choice of cupcake with a pot of tea or juice. Tip to get the best pictures at peggy porschen cakes- I haven’t waited much anytime but a good tip will be to reach off time when people wouldn’t really go for cake and tea. Around 10 or 6. People know others are waiting so they order, take pictures, eat + enjoy and leave. Nearest tube station - Victoria

3. Farm girl cafe - Has the most famous pink table in London. The table in the open at the corner is what you have to get. Well I have got it every time without wait. And the only tip is to go a little early say around 11.30 for lunch or 8.15 for breakfast. If you can’t go early best don’t go. On my last visit there was a cue within 15 mins and i also spotted a couple of famous bloggers waiting, lol!!!! What to order - Avocado toast, rose latte, acai bowl. Nearest tube station - Notting hill gate

4. Spring restaurant - This one is a more formal sit down out of the lot. But very pretty and well done. The pink sofa makes the prettiest picture, couldn’t resist lounging on it. You can take your time here, i wouldn’t mind hours by the window. The food also comes super fast. What to order - Lemon cod + fresh juice but the menu keeps changing. Tip to get the best picture - You can book in advance and reach early. Nearest tube station - Holborn

5. Elan cafe - The latest pretty place entrant in the market where i have yet to go. But i know i will love and can't wait. 


Those are some of the prettiest and my favourite places to take instagram photos in London. 3 are also spotted in the Christmas time in London Vlog. Hope this post is helpful in planning out your London itinerary, also please share any of your favourites.

We often say the food in restaurants is not the real Indian food, even if it is or close i am really happy to say that the best Indian food be it London, Delhi or wherever is always in the homes. Food speaks the strength of a culture and in my opinion till the time food at home wins over food outside home culture flourishes. Ok lets not digress and stay on the topic of today. London is lucky to be blessed with good Indian food outside homes and i am going to put down my favourites where i love to go back again and again. Though i do not usually do food posts here but i take food very seriously even more than fashion or travel!!! If you check my stories you know that!! Full of food!!! So this list is legit.

where to eat real indian food in London, London restaurants, London indian restaurants

  1. Raavi Kebab-  North Indian Amritsari Lahori. No fancy stuff here but omg the food, the closest as it gets!! Lunch walk in but dinner best reserve. Dish to try- Saag, Chana masala, Haleem, Nihari, Dal tarka, Seekh kebab. Cost of meal for 2 - £25. 
  2. Dum Biryani House - South Indian Hyderabadi. Simple interior with kickass food. Dish to try - Lamb Biryani, Kala Chana masala, Prawn fry, Mutton fry, Hyderabad dal tadka. Cost of meal for 2 - £40.
  3. Trishna - Coastal cuisine. This is a fancy one but the food has the heart. Reservation must or walk in for luck. Dish to try - Paneer Chetinad, Seafood Pilau, Lamb Nariyal Masala, Veg seekh, Nilgiri Chicken Kurma, Coastal bhindi.  Cost of meal for 2 - £100.
  4. Jamawar - Street food. Love the fancy interior. Food is prime. Reservation must alternatively walk in for luck. Dish to try - Shami kebab, Lamb chops, Macher jhol, Lal maas, Dum nali biryani. Cost of meal for 2 - £100.  
  5. Dishoom - A mix of dishes from all over India. Old bombay Irani cafe interior, love. Brace the que. Dish to try - Keema pav, Awadhi biryani, Bedmi puri, Lamb boti kebab, Masala prawn. Cost of meal for 2 - £50.
As i said i take food very seriously, grab and go or eat whatever, wherever doesn’t work for me so i am always eating at the best places. All the 5 on this list are in and around central London where i usually hangout. Also i take recommendations from friends preferably blogger friends and family  before trying out a place, specially Indian because I wouldn't go out and eat Indian if its not up there!!! In the new year I look forward to sharing more such posts with you.
