My LDN crew
My recent London trip started with a bang! Decided to stay in the East End this time around, which in itself was an adventure.
I had no idea how fun and hectic deciding to stay in East London would make the first leg of my trip to England.
I stayed at Shoreditch House, and was right in the middle of Shoreditch, which is home to many of my friends. My location on this trip was incredibly convenient and quite fun, maybe too much so!

Gorgeous restroom fixtures at Shoreditch House, classic LDN interior design
No club in the world has the convivial vibe of Shoreditch House so I felt I was w/ friends and family the whole time even when I was with their throughly charming staff.Went to the Adam Ant concert the next night at the Roundhouse in Camden, where he had last played over 35 years ago and had sold it out then and was selling it out again that night.
The man, the myth, the iconic LDN legend in full swing, my dear friend – Adam Ant
Adam and the Ants fam
It was great fun going en masse with a dozen friends and running into very many more. It was also a pleasure meeting Adam’s daughter and, of course, getting a kiss from Prince Charming himself.

Brunch the next day w good friends at Brick Lane where one of the larger halls had become a weekend home for ethnic food stalls and then a stroll to the flower market on Columbia Road.
The gorgeous selections at the local flower market
A few days of whirlwind excitement had me yearning for the relative tranquility of my next stop, the West End, which I shall share details of at a later time…
