Instagram Diary London + Guide

Last week I got back from my trip to one of my favorite cities, London!
I come back almost every year in the Autumn and love to go shopping, enjoy nice restaurants and the city.
In this post I want to share with you my favorite restaurants, shops and places to visit in London.

Shopping places

Two of my favorite places in London to shop is Kings Road and Sloane Square in Chelsea and New Bond Street.
Kings Road/Sloane Square haves such cute shops like Russell and Bromley (amazing shoes!), Jo Malone, Club Monaco, warehouse Peter Jones, Michael Kors and many many more!
They have the perfect balance between the more affordable brands and more luxurious brands.
Hungry after shopping? Than I would really recommend going to The Ivy Chelsea Garden a lovely restaurant to have lunch or dinner.
If you prefer a quick bite, than the Good Life Eatery is cute and has amazing salads, smoothies, sandwiches and coffee.

When you are on New Bond Street and want to shop beautiful lingerie, than you must go to Victoria’s Secret. I love VS but especially the store in London, it’s so beautifully decorated and they have so much choice. I can spend hours in this store and can’t leave without buying something..
A cross the street from VS is Fenwick, a really nice department store with a huge beauty, shoe and clothing department with the nicest brands. On the beauty department is also a beauty corner with a nail bar, brow bar, spa treatments and hairdresser.
Want to have a healthy bite? Than Ella’s Mae Deli is great for salads, avocado toasts and deliciously ella smoothies! It’s located not for away from Bond Street. L’ETO is another favorite if mine, I love the amazing salads they serve, It’s like a healthy buffet. Also the cakes and fresh pastries are amazing.

One of my favorite places to go to in London to make pictures, find inspiration and walk around is Kensington. I love the beautiful chic houses and the vibe here.
Another beautiful part of London is Knightsbridge.
The area where you will find Harrods and shops like, Burberry, Topshop, Zara, COS, Ted Baker and more. Also Notting Hill, famous from the movie is a must to visit!
The houses are all very Instagram proof to photograph and there are lots of cute shops and coffee places.

Hip restaurants

When in London, I always come back at restaurant Olives.
An Italian restaurant located on Gloucester Road where they have the best Italian food.
On our last night in London we went out for dinner at Sketch, one of the coolest restaurants I have ever seen!
They have 3 bars and 2 restaurants and all of them have their own look and feeling.
The restaurant where we had dinner is on the ground floor where everything is pink! I love it.
It looks just like a movie with all the pink chairs, tables, decoration and sketches on the wall.
The food is amazing as well and if you are ever in London and want to have fun night out than I would really recommend going to Sketch.
Also… be sure to make a reservation and don’t forget to have a look at the toilets, they are famous for it! 😉
