A few of my favourite spots in London

Leadenhall Market is a beautiful spot to have a drink and a snack on a cold winter's afternoon.

Gail's Bakery - I have not eaten this much bread in years.

This brioche-like treat was the best thing I ate during our visit - find Gail's Artisan Bakery HERE

In my old neighborhood I looked at fabrics in Osborne and Little - their tree was gorgeous! Just lights and pine cones dipped in colored glitter. Such a lovely idea - find Osborne and Little HERE.

Across the street I paid a nostalgic visit to Designer's Guild - find them HERE.

Our favourite neighborhood restaurant is still there - Eight Over Eight

Harrods was magical on this visit. Brits like to say only tourists shop at Harrods, and that may be true but the stock is so truly exceptional that it's probably a good thing we don't have to share it with anyone else. I am always impressed with the many exclusive styles and colors Harrods manages to buy from its vendors - there are always things here you will never find anywhere else.

Shoe Heaven, the shoe department on the fifth floor.

So much Chanel...

I love an entire cashmere heather grey outfit with a neon pink shoe.

The King's Road, late afternoon on our last day. Goodbye London, I hope to be back soon.
