England - Part 3: London Day 1-2

London was definitely one of the highlights of my whole trip. It's been a dream of mine to visit London and especially shop in Camden Town. We spent two nights and three days just Jonathan and I. Day one consisted of a train ride into the city, relaxing in our hotel room, and visiting the Camden Lock market (not sure if that's what it's called). The view from our terrace was beautiful. You could see the canal, all the little food market stations, and Camden high street. At night, we'd hear live music coming from the 'night market'. 

I absolutely loved the entire area of Camden. It was lively, eclectic, and grungy in a really good way. I felt as though I could go there everyday and still see something new each time. The next day was dedicated to shopping and exploring. We started with the markets, went back to our hotel to drop off all our purchases, then headed back out to Camden high street for more shopping. We visited the famous Camden Market and then the shops along the street. I had to visit the Dr. Martens store. I've been wanting new boots for over a year now and was hoping to find a really unique pair that suited me. I ended up finding the PERFECT pair. They're called "vintage daisy" (VINTAGE + DAISY = ME!). I love the psychedelic flowers. I had never seen this pattern before and the salesperson said they were new. 

Our last day in London was spent at Vivienne Westwood and going on the Eye, visiting Big Ben and going over Tower Bridge, stay tuned for pics in my next post. Hope you're all enjoying the end of summer!
