London, babbbyyy! I went to the capital last week with my boyfriend Karl and it was such a cute day, we didn't buy anything, just food and train tickets, which for me is such a strange concept. Quirky Camden stalls plus pop up shops, and Oxford Street chain shops normally rinse me of my money, I just can't help myself. Although, evidently I can, haha.

We first wandered Camden, checking out vintage stores, staring at the cool shoes in the Dr Marten store and stood in awe at the graffiti art plastered on the walls. So many Amy Winehouse homage pieces, and of course I had to see the statue of her, near the Cereal Killer Cafe and of course take a picture with my beautiful girl.

There's a lot of different characters in Camden for sure, one of the first people I encountered was a guy with long dreads holding a sign that read 'Help a hippie get stoned' which I thought was so funny. Gutted I didn't take a picture with him now, but an original way to make money, gotta hand it to him.
There was also a guy there handing out white paper butterflies, I assume it was a social experiment to see how people would react. Karl said it made him feel bloody weird (his words, haha!) but I actually thought it was really cute.

Stick it to the man!
Love is love x
We ate at an awesome vegan Chinese buffet in Camden called Dou Dou, it's just past The Worlds End / the tube station. I actually fell in love, my new favourite place for sure! Their chicken balls were the absolute bomb and the vegan 'egg' noodles tasted exactly like 'normal' ones you would order from the local Chinese takeaway. I only managed two big plates, but for £6 it's such a bargain, and even my extremely fussy eater partner loved it, so you can't go wrong! Would 1000% recommend!

 I'm visiting London again at the end of November for a bit of Christmas shopping (did I really just mentioned Christmas, Halloween has not been yet?!), sight seeing and such. I might go somewhere like London Dungeons, or the ghost bus tour they have, we'll see! Any recommendations? Let me know!

See you next time, hope you liked my outfit and thanks for reading!
