Sweet East London adventures with friends are one of my favorite things to do at the weekend! So when Lyzi came to stay for a few days we flipped a coin (went flying down the met line carriage) and ended up heading to one of my favorite parts of town Brick lane/Liverpool street area. 

As a teenager and when I was doing my foundation degree I become pretty obsessed with street art so whenever I walk past a new piece I can't help but document it! I have quite a few friends that are street artists, so I can enjoy the beauty and see the hard work that has gone into creating it. The walls around Brick lane area never stay constant, I think that's why I love it so much its always changing! Sorry for the boobies, but I just love the poster...made me smile so enjoy! We visited the ever so lovely neon Lik + Neon shop on sclater street that has cute cats and cute illustrated goodies, we wandered past Kahaila Cafe that sells some of the best cake in East London ( I will feature this beautiful little cafe in another East London adventure post soon).

So we popped into a few shops, I grabbed some tees from Urban outfitters, comfiest t-shirts on the planet and just wandered around and took in the sights. Plus we also went to Wagamama's and stuffed our faces...just because we could!

I was thinking of compiling an A to Z of ella's London would anybody be up for reading a series of blog posts based on hangouts, coffee shops, museums that I love to visit?
