Take a look at my trip to London when I was visiting my friend Rekha in her apartment in High St Kensington.

I arrived from Luton Airport to Victoria Station & then caught the tube to my friend’s apartment. It was so fun to feel like a real Londoner and enjoy strolling around London and doing not much more than photos and people watching.

I went to see the Big Ben & the Buckingham Palace, visited Victoria Beckham store & headed to Oxford St to do some shopping – was especially excited about Top Shop & Mango, which we don’t have in Los Angeles.

In the evening, we went out for dinner to Redemption – a vegetarian restaurant in Notting Hill.

Hope your enjoy this vlog & me talking all the time haha 🙂

My second London Vlog will take you to Notting Hill & Portobello Markets for a stroll, my favorite Vegan Restaurant EVER called Farmacy London (where I had Matcha lemonade and best Beetroot Dahl). Then @TheBlondeFlamingo & @PinkLem were kind enough to show me around London and take some photos for me! Later that evening we went out to one of the most popular restaurants in London Dishoom & then to SushiSamba.

{ oh , I know I keep saying Dahl, but I meant NAAN! Sorry, that was after a few drinks ;P}

I arrived in Paris after flying from a remote island in the Philippines to Los Angeles where I only had 12 hrs repack & see my babies (pets). I was tired! Luckily, my Airbnb was very close to the Eiffel Tower, so I spent a couple of days just hanging out on the street of Paris.

This was my 5th trip to the capital of France so I wasn’t necesarily driven to see all the major tourist attractions – I just wanted to eat croissants & macaroons, drinks coffee & enjoy the early Spring sun!

In the video, you can see I met up with French photographer Loic @loic80l & one of my IG followers @heels.on.the.trip

The Macaroons I spent my fortune one are the famous LAUDREE & the Montmatre cafe where the movie Amelia was shot is called Cafe Les Deus Moulin.
