Friday figments and photos: Grey June skies

I’ve cottoned on to something, why these weekly posts seem to hard. It’s the fault of instagram. I’m always a late adoptee to everything (*cough* snapchat *cough*), and after looking at instagram and thinking ‘nah’ can’t be bothered, I was peer pressured into joining yet another source of wanderlust.

See, it’s not my fault!

Life lately and the adventures of a London Kiwi.

With only a limited time available to dedicate myself to staring at a small screen, I have no theme bar ‘oooh, that’s pretty’. I probably should, I’m sure but that requires a little more effort on my part. It does open your eye to the world around you – it sounds crazy and cliched, but it’s true.

How often do you find a blogger has been to your home town and discovers something you have never looked twice at. See, there.

A building you have walked past a hundred times, lit up at twilight. Snap.

The reflection of an 8-storey atrium roof on your dessert plate. Tinkle, snap. (Adjusting the cutlery in a more aesthetically pleasing manner.)

Visiting a coffee shop twice in the same day. Snap. Snap.

Honestly, I usually avoid the museum crowds of South Kensington cafes BUT this morning I accidently discovered a gem, lured in by the sexy sound of a coffee machine. . . . #LoveLondon #coffee #cafesaroundtheworld #Kensington #gourmet #prettycitylondon #strideby #loveTheWorld #visitlondon #thelondonlifeinc #architecture_london #blueskies #beautiful #lonelyplanet #PrettyLittleLondon #worldtravelbook #darlingweekend #travelblogger #beautifuldestinations #winningmeover #thehappynow #flashesofdelight #onthetable #moodofmytable #coffeesesh #strangersinmyfeed #coffeeoftheday #yummy

And it’s the same for these here adventures of a London Kiwi. This blog is a randomly selected refuge of sunshine and decidedly full coffee cups. Most of the time. And that’s how it’s gonna stay.
