London Calling

When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life: Samuel Johnson.
Obviously, Dr.Johnson didn't mention women, but it's a great quote as far as I'm concerned. As a huge fan of Museums, brick victorian architecture, vintage fashion, window shopping (even if not a buyer anymore), world cuisine, pubs and urban lifestyle, I enjoy London everytime I visit it. I know that these things are not everybody's cup of tea (particularly urban lifestyle is not very popular these days!).
And I think that the most enjoyable thing in my holidays has been to meet some lovely blogger-friends, after years of following each other online. They are absolutely fabulous, totally as they look in their blogs, if not better!. I totally felt like hanging with rock'n'roll stars!.
And they were absolutely kind and patient with my 'peculiar' english, we talked a lot and agreed on almost everything (great minds think alike!). Lots of fun visiting some Spitalfields markets, particularly the vintage stalls!.
It's still less than a week ago and I'm looking forward the next meeting!

'Cuando un hombre está cansado de Londres, está cansado de la vida', Samuel Johnson.
Evidentemente, el Dr. Johnson no dijo nada acerca de las mujeres, pero es una gran frase y muy cierta en lo que a mí concierne. La ciudad tiene algunas de las cosas de las que soy muy entusiasta, museos, arquitectura victoriana de ladrillo, moda vintage, escaparates (aunque ya no compro!), cocina de todo el mundo, pubs y vida urbana. Puede que no sean del gusto de todo el mundo, sobre todo la vida urbana que no está nada de moda!
Y creo que lo más estupendo de estas vacaciones ha sido conocer personalmente a algunas de mis amigas de los blogs, después de años siguiéndonos y comentándonos. Son fabulosas, totalmente como en sus blogs, incluso mejores!. Me he sentido como yendo por ahí con estrellas del rock!
Y han sido tan amables y pacientes con mi inglés 'peculiar', hemos charlado mucho y coincidido mucho también (brillantes que somos! ;D). Spitalfields sigue muy entretenido, sobre todo los puestos vintage.
No ha pasado ni una semana y ya estoy deseando que llegue otra ocasión de reunirnos!

Buttercup's Frocks
Vintage Vixen
Vronni's Style Meanderings

It's taking me some time to be back to business as usual, but I'll catch up on your blogs asap!.

Me va a llevar un poco de tiempo volver al negocio, pero me pondré al día en cuanto pueda!

  1. It's been far too long since I was in London, and Jos and I have been thinking of going. I'm glad to hear you've had a fabulous time, and I can well believe that meeting Vix, Veronica and Fig was one of the highlights! You are all looking absolutely fabulous and as I've been hearing you've caused quite a stir! Vix says we must coordinate our holidays next time ;-) I'd have loved to meet you! Besos xxx

  5. I crave urban living, for all the reasons you listed. What a colorful bunch, bet there's not a pair of khakis among you

  6. I am so pleased and delighted to have met you, Monica. Your English was astonishingly good; if only my Spanish was better that just 'ola'! We had such a good day and I love your photos especially the one with St. Giles; Spitalfields in the background.
