Seven Dials London
Do you fancy a stroll in “Seven Dials”?
.
I love this part of London with its quiet and pretty streets, just a stone throw away from the hustle and bustle of Covent Garden. 
.
Do you know where this name comes from? Actually, seven streets converge at this circular junction (see picture), at the centre of which there’s a column with six sundials (the column had been commissioned before a late-stage change of the plans counting only six roads) 🤗
.
Enjoy the walk there (and pop into @monmouthcoffee to grab a good coffee on the way 😉)

Even buildings can’t resist the effect of time... I noticed this slightly tilted one during a walk around Covent Garden / 7 dials in early December last year. I am wondering how the left door still opens 🤪
.
Love this quirky architecture! Have you ever spotted such buildings before? 👀

Monmouth Coffee Covent Garden - London

Valérie

It’s coffee time and I’m craving for one prepared by @monmouthcoffee 😋 . Last espresso I took there was amazing: strong and tasty, for a perfect start of the day!! ☕️ . Plus the staff is super friendly and happily advise you on the coffee you need according to your brewing needs 😉 . Monmouth Coffee Company is definitely a place I’d recommend to visit if you are in London! 🤗 What other coffee spots are worth a detour; any good ideas you want to share? 🤩 . 📍Seven Dials .

Michelin House

Valérie

The Michelin House, the famous Michelin Building located 81 Fulham Road in Chelsea, hosts an amazing flower shop: @petalsatbibendum 🌺 Irresistible choice of flowers and accessories, a mix of colours and shapes which add beauty to the entrance of this unique building 💐 . Michelin House was the first permanent UK headquarters for the Michelin Tyre Company Ltd 🇫🇷 The building opened for business on 20 January 1911 🌟 . 🔎 Did you know the Michelin House was designed by one of Michelin's employees, François Espinasse? It counts three large stained-glass windows, all featuring the Michelin Man "Bibendum" 👀 . Impossible to miss and actually quite a good reason to organise a walk to see it if you live in London ... 😉 . Happy Monday everyone 🤩 . 📍81 Fulham Road, Chelsea . #doyouspeaklondon #flowersofinstagram #flowers #instaflowers #petalsatbibendum #londoncitylife #mysecretlondon #london_only #london_enthusiast #instalondon #londoncityspots #londonpics #mydarlinglondon #londonthroughmyeyes #its_so_london #london4all #londoncitylife #london_gurus #londoner #exploringlondon #timeoutlondon #goingoutlondon #thisislondon #secretlyldn #londonbylondoners #beautifullondon #welovelondon #ilovelondon❤️ #londonist #london

Liberty London

Valérie

Liberty’s flowers are always worth a picture, aren’t they? 😉 (Like every detail of the building and displays, actually 🤗) . Plus, they will definitely cheer up our week end! 🌷 . 📍Liberty London .

Piccadilly, London
Memories of a nice walk in Piccadilly arcade with @veropphoto before Christmas 😍
.
This bronze statue of Beau Brummell stands at the end of the arcade and was designed by Irena Sidiecka 🤩
. 
George Bryan "Beau" Brummell (1778 – 1840) was a fashion icon for men in England during The Regency. He was a close friend of future King George IV, but after the two had an argument, and Brummell got into debt, he had to take refuge in France. He died shabby and insane in Caen. 
.
Whatever his personal tragedies, Brummell’s legacy in men’s fashion is still evident today: the black suit, which he pioneered, is still a staple in men’s closets, 200 years after he made it fashionable 😉 
.
Have a lovely day 🎩

Trafalgar Square

Valérie

The @nationalgallery is one of my favourite art museums in London💕 . The gallery hosts a collection of 2300 splendid paintings, which you can visit for free! 😍 . I can’t wait for the museums and cultural places to reopen. Our need for artistic knowledge and cultural openness may have been strained by the current pandemic, but we’ll hopefully soon be able to admire such incredible art collections again!! 🤗 Let’s be there, fully supportive, when they reopen 😉 . What’s your best place to enjoy art in London? 🤩 . 📍Trafalgar Square .

Still have a few pictures of London taken last December 😜
.
In normal times I would have skipped them and added new snapshots of London but hey, I am (like we all are at the moment) kind of stuck at home coping with home learning and lots of other duties so... in fact I quite fancy these little lego characters reminding me to find joy everyday in this new routine. Let’s stay positive (and young, at least mentally 😉). 😍

Happy Monday everyone! ✨

When I walked past this store I could not resist photographing this simply yet delicately adorned shopfront 🤩

I love minimalist design in every field. And those iconic red lips from @lulu_guinness are enough to make it desirable, aren’t they? 💋

I do love shopfronts... especially those with warm colours and ancient designs ❤️
.
This @benjamin_pollocks_toyshop  in @coventgardenldn always catches my attention. I feel literally captivated by all these ancient designs and toys... 💕 
Either childhood nostalgia or simply adoration for such designs? No clue.. maybe a bit of both 🤩

What’s your favorite store in London? The one that raises up a mix of emotions and keeps you glued to the store front? 🤗✨

I am looking at this picture of @theivylondon in Covent Garden and I think of all these restaurants temporarily closed 😔
.
For us customers, it’s surely sad and disappointing not to be able to explore London’s best places in the food area. But for all restaurants, cafes and tea rooms it’s a matter of survival at the moment ✨
.
So I am thinking of you all today. All the foodie places I have visited so far and the ones still on my bucket list. We love you. We miss you too. We’ll be there for you when you are allowed to open again 💕

These new restrictions were not exactly what we expected for the new year... 😢 I guess we just have to get used to them and adapt at best.

Happy Monday everyone! This one marks the come back to our previous routine in a brand new year ✨ . I hope the festivities gave you the energy to start from scratch again (looking back at all these lovely Christmas decorations helps me find positivity and hope). 💕 . Life has taught us how to be brave and resilient lately, there is still to be experienced but we are ready, aren’t we? . 📍Covent Garden .

Somerset House

Valérie

I look at these pictures with nostalgia. I was very lucky to celebrate my birthday in these igloos nestled in the @somersethouse courtyard in-between the last 2 lockdowns (understand: mid December!) ✨ I had an amazing lunch in these @winterdomesatsomersethouse and a memorable moment with my family, such a lovely treat 💕 . Wonderful memories of a precarious freedom... But 2021 will make us forget all about this 😜 . 📍Somerset House .

Bye bye 2020, welcome 2021!🥳 . I hope you spent the last few days of 2020 on a cheerful note despite the context ✨And now that 2021 has started, I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year! May 2021 bring warmth of love and positivity in your life 🙏❤️ . I can’t believe we’re now done with the end of the year celebrations ... We waited for them so long and they went by so quickly! 🤷‍♀️ Here’s just a few memories of the extravagantly decorated @ivychelsgarden before it’s time to completely forget about Christmas 😜 . 📍Chelsea .

Carnaby London

Valérie

This is it: the last day of 2020! . A special year with lots of doubts, fears, frustrations but surely also filled with a few happy moments. . I will remember the joy I had meeting friends and family as soon as we could, doing simple things again (like going to the restaurant or visiting an exhibition!) and thinking it was exceptional! I loved the long walks in new parks I newly discovered and most of all the huge solidarity emerging from this pandemic. . What’s your best memory from this year? . 📍Carnaby street .

Carnaby London
I was literally drawn to this wall painting “urban sphinxes” by @annalauriniblue when wandering in Carnaby street ten days ago 🙌
.
Maybe because I found the red lips irresistible (and quite Christmassy then 😜?)
.
Did you happen to see it too? What do you think of it? ✨

Carnaby London

Valérie

Christmas decorations on Carnaby a street are always a highlight of the year (I was lucky enough to be in town in-between lockdowns and able to admire them) ✨ . This year Carnaby has collaborated with @chooselove, a charity that is the world’s only shop selling real gifts for refugees: the items you choose will be delivered to the people facing winter in the most difficult conditions 💝 . These decorations contrast with last year’s ones, but 2020 has been so difficult for many people that simple - impactful though - words are sometimes even better to celebrate Christmas and the new year. . Hope you had the opportunity to wander on Carnaby street before tier 4. . 📍Carnaby Street .

Maddox Street

Valérie

@maddoxgallery always nails its store front and despite the apparent simplicity of these decorations, I love them ✨❤️ . 📍Maddox Street .

Valérie

I’ve seen pictures of the “sparkling angels” on Regent Street many times but never with this angle (on the first picture)✨ . What do you think of it? Swipe to choose your favorite snapshot 😉 . 📍Regent Street .

Valérie

I am so glad I went to see the Christmas lights on Regent Street when it was still possible. . Despite the context I hope you’re all making the most of your holidays with simple joys. My utmost pleasure these days are simply enjoying the day without checking the time every minute, sipping a good coffee/tea, reading an uplifting book, cooking a nice meal, exercising a bit and playing board games with my family. . “Simple things bring infinite pleasure. Yet, it takes us a while to realize that. But once simple is in, complex is out – forever”. – Joan Marques . What about you? What are your simple joys? . 📍Regent Street .

This is it, Christmas is gone until next year (let it be merrier🤞!) but I can’t resist showing you this giant advent calendar @fortnums has chosen to adorn its store facade this year, which I admired during the day as well as at night to enjoy all of its magic✨ . Such a particular countdown it has been, but I hope you’ve found joy and peace at Christmas this year. Wishing you all a lovely Boxing Day 💕 . 📍Piccadilly

Valérie

What a wonderful day to post these pictures taken @fortnums offering a festive journey through their best Christmas windows 👌💕 . Fortnum & Mason made a selection of the eight most iconic ones. Which one is your favorite? 🤩 . Hope you’re having a fantastic time with your family, Merry Christmas to all ✨🎄 . 📍Piccadilly .

Valérie

This year @burlingtonarcade has teamed up with iconic French champagne brand @moetchandon and installed a Christmassy swing inside the arcade. . Did you go there to take a picture? Wanted to come back and photograph my family during the usual Christmas walk, but tier 4 had other plans for me... hopefully next year we will feel free again and able to catch up with all the good moments we could not have in 2020! . Wish you all a Merry Christmas 🎄✨ Stay positive, safe and happy 🌈⭐️ . 📍Burlington arcade, Piccadilly

Valérie

At 196 yards long, this beautiful covered shopping arcade is said to be one of the longest in Britain 👌 . Burlington arcade in Piccadilly offers some of the most beautiful Christmas decorations in town ❤️ . This year is no exception with all the red baubles hanging and the many Christmas trees displayed all along the arcade 🎄 . We’re so close to Christmas now, I could not resist posting these few pics 😉 I hope you’re having a good time with close family despite the weird context this year ✨ . 📍Burlington arcade, Piccadilly .
