Friday in London! We woke up around 6am today – a standard habit for me while I’m traveling to Europe. I don’t know whether its the time difference, or the sunlight, or the pure excitement of being here, but I can’t sleep in until a decent hour no matter how late I go to sleep at night. Either way it works well for me, because I have time to work out and check off some work before the day starts.
Our hotel is as beautiful as last time we stayed here. Shoreditch House is perfectly located in the centre of Shoreditch. I can’t wait to go check out some of the stores in this area, and I’m also dying to go back to Notting Hill. One of my favourite stores is located there – Raey. We’ve not figured out when it makes sense to go that side, but we will. I will!
What else? We need to start thinking about some sort of engagement celebration when we’re back, and of course, when and where to have our wedding. I wouldn’t consider myself very stereotypically ‘girly’, but when it comes to my wedding, I’ve dreamed, fantasised and planned every shape and form of it for like…ever. Right now we’re looking at getting married as soon as November, but we may also wait for another year. So many decisions to make, but I promise I will keep you guys in the loop here on the blog throughout all the decision making. It’s important for me to finalise a date and place soon though, so all my close friends and family can have the ability to be there. I ain’t getting married without my girlfriends! (Also I can’t even believe I’m getting married!!)
I have a meeting this afternoon with a Swedish company that’s based here, and tonight Saif and I are going back to one of our favourite restaurants in London – Barrafina.
Have a lovely, sunny Friday afternoon!
