For some reason I didn’t take my camera out on Saturday. All I did was go shopping in central so it wasn’t all that eventful! However Sunday rolled round and Me, Dal and Zoe decided to head up to Bethnal Green and attend a Vintage Kilo Sale. I’ve been to some before and they’ve always been a treasure trove of goodies. This one we went to was so-so. I think we got there a little too late and all the best stuff was already gone. Dal picked up a few bits and Zoe scored this awesome suede fringed coat which was next level cool. Im sure she’ll be posting about it soon!

We then went for faux-mexican at Las Iguanas in Spitalfields which I wouldn’t recommend. The food is fine but the service was AWFUL. Literally had to ask so many times for our bill, no one asked how our food was and our drinks came out so late . Im not one to complain about “un cheery” service as long as they actually do their job properly. It was really not good to be honest. Food was fine, I’ve had better Mexicans but if you’ve been to Las Iguanas you know the drill, pretty cheap. We knew what we were expecting foodwise but when it comes to service - nah.

Zoe went home to blog, so me and Dal went for wander down Brick Lane and went to Beigel Bake before dragging ourselves home. We were both shattered for some reason and despite not really doing anything hard all day we got home and hopped right into our jim jams! Hope you all had an awesome weekend no matter what you did!

  5. Whenever I visit London, I only ever go to touristy places and it's getting pretty boring now! I'd love to check out Spitalfields, sounds like a good upcoming place. Shame about your bad food experience, shame as it looks really good!

  37. I hate poor service. I just feel really disappointed. If you're ever in Islington/Highgate in London, check out a pizzeria called Fabrizio's delicious pizzas and the waiters and waitresses are so friendly. PLUS! Fabrizio himself comes out to say hello. :)
