REPRESENTING AND FLOWER PICK UP

I know I've mentioned it a few times, but incase you missed it, Ken and I are here in London for him to go back to school.  So naturally, I had to represent my husband-to-be and his adventures in school.  He actually surprised me with the sweater just a few weeks after I made the move to London, and I was more than happy to sport it around town.

Walking to Portobello Market it something we do fairly frequently. Our flat is just a few minutes walk away so it would be kind of silly not to.  Usually we reserve it for nice sunny days, but on this particular day we decided to head out into the rain and in search of some fresh flowers and coffee.

Gail's bakery is one of the more popular bakeries on Portobello Road. It's right on the main strip, so a lot of people stop there for a caffeine top up. Not to mention the finger-lickin baked goods.  I also love their avocado toast (see a post on that HERE), which I've ordered over and over again.

Ken and I both have a MAJOR sweet tooth so it takes everything in us not to pick up a truck load of sweets and treats on Saturdays at the market. They have the most amazing drool worthy selections of not just donuts and sugary goodies but also fresh fruit and veggies.

After much contemplation (and Ken threatening to leave me there if I didn't pick something soon), I ended going with these pretty pink flowers from the market. The vendor told me they are called Lazy Roses, which I've never heard of, but I loved them!

We got caught in the rain again on the way home, so we rush back and got these pretties into a vase.  And when I say vase, I mean a coffee canteen that we use as a vase.  It works perfectly for our weekly blooms.
