DIARY || Kingston and St. Christopher's Place.

I thought I'd shake things up a bit for today's Sunday post and do a bit of a vloggy/lifestyle photo diary. Personally, these are some of my favourite posts to read from around the blogosphere so I thought, why not make this a Sunday tradition?
I met up with one of my best university friends on Friday, also known as my 'twin', and embarked on one hell of a shopping date. Starting off in Kingston, we perused the isles of Topshop - both stumbling upon two great Summer wardrobe finds - and strolled around the city centre. Naturally, we stopped off in Whistles and that's when we found the most perfect across-body bag in the sale. Well, I say 'we' but Naomi saw it first and so I had to let her have it - because calling 'dibs' is a real thing! Reduced from £85 down to £30, I wasn't going to give up on the bag of my dreams and asked the sales assistant to see if there were any in the surrounding area. As luck would have it, there were 7 in stock in the flagship store in St. Christopher's Place. Having wandered round the shops some more and grabbed a quick lunch at Bill's on the waterfront (complete with peach bellini's!) - the twin and I decided to make a spontaneous trip into London so I could also snap up the gorgeous sale bag.

St. Christopher's Place is one of prettiest little nooks I've ever come across. With a hidden street entrance, this square is filled with some great shops and coffee finds - and of course, the beauty/fashion/everything hotspot that is Selfridges is only across the street. Having nabbed my bag, Naomi and I had a wander through the kitsch streets of Central London until we found The Good Life Eatery where we paused for coffee and peanut butter cups. Like you can think of a better combination. 

Although choosing to hang around in Central until Rush Hour wasn't our best idea, I had the best day catching up with my English Lit twin and got some pretty lovely purchases out of it... but more on that another time. And if you haven't already been, Kingston is one underrated shopping hotspot.
