Eye want candy






Took these around Shoreditch last week and I was just thinking how I wish that this sort of street art was a bit more spread out over London. But actually, the thing that is truly great about this city is that is isn't uniform, that everywhere you go is different and no two neighbourhoods look alike. After nearly 18 years here I still have a huge crush on London and I don't think it'll ever fade. Happy Friday friends!

  1. I was in London only for one week last year but I fell in love with it immediately... I imagine how nice it must be to leave there...

    Have a nice weekend and say hello to London for me! :)

  2. I love this collection. It sums up how I feel about London too. I have developed the same crush (my husband is an East-End boy), hence we're making a big move from Devon to London soon...eeek!

  4. Funny how no matter where you go there is always graffiti on walls.

    I'd love to visit London one day, it is nice to see photos though, sometimes it feels like you are right there :)
