Mel made the move over to the UK just before Christmas. Now she has a job, and has an apartment and is officially living in London. Considering all these factors, it was time to crash on her couch. And we celebrated with cocktails.

Putting together cocktails Fun with mirrors. :)

Time to enjoy!

Our first day out and about, we went to have breakfast at Providores and Tapa Room . It had delicious delicious coffee and yummy yummy breakfast. (Photos below are Mel’s – thanks hun!)

The other activity of our day was Space Invader hunting. Remember the clocks we made a couple of weeks ago? They were inspired by Space Invader. The first clock we made was for our mantle piece. The second clock (below) was a surprise house warming gift for Mel. 🙂

So, after breakfast we wandered and saw 2 Space Invader works. The first was randomly found that morning (So exciting, but also such a small piece!).

The second one was huge by comparison! Mel had found it randomly a few weeks earlier. Both were great to see!

One of the great things about London, of course, is the underground. We used it to get everywhere that weekend.


Another day, another amazing breakfast. We went down the road to Mel’s local cafe/bar called Alice House. It’s a beautiful venue and would be awesome for drinks sometime. We’ll have to try the cocktails in teapots!

And it was another big day of walking. We went over to Stables Market in Camden area with Mel, Belle and Linden. What a specular windy crazy eccentric place!
