Brick Lane Primadonna

Hello everyone, I had the most amazing day yesterday. I met Lucinda, the designer for Fawn&Faith for the first time and we went down to London to hang out, go to Brick Lane and see Marina and the Diamonds at the hmv forum. By total fluke, Lucinda currently lives at the next train stop from Peterborough so we caught the train down together.

Lucinda being pretty, I have only just noticed the man sleeping in the mirror, whoops! 

Lucinda bought some Sushi with her, rather jealous!

I recently bought a new Iphone and these are my instagram pictures from yesterday! Please follow me @tobmonster1

From Kings Cross we went straight to Trafalgar Square for some photos.

For those of you who don't know, Brick Lane (pic above) is a street in Laandan which is full of Vintage shops, small boutiques with weird designers you have never heard of and lots of Indian restaurants. It is meant to be the place to find the best authentic Indian curry outside of India. It is also the centre of underground and urban fashion in London. You can't walk down the street without seeing a crazy moustache or a Boy London cap.

While Lucinda and I were walking down the street we were given a 10% off voucher for a new Vintage shop called Blitz Blitz so we thought we would go check it out. For anyone who is into vintage fashions, grunge, Indie style or just general denim and leather goodies it's worth checking out. They also took our photo for their blog. It was the first time someone has ever asked for my photo!

We also checked out a few other shops.

Lucinda also took me to her favourite shop on Brick Lane called Public Beware.

Lucinda made me try on this top which we both liked so much so I had to buy it! Luckily the brand is super affordable and it was in the sale. It's got a sort of halloweeny witch like feel about it. (PLEASE SOMEONE INVITE ME TO A HALLOWEEN PARTY)

After Brick Lane we went up to Kentish Town to see Marina. Unfortunately the Public Transport in London was being it's usual self and we got soaking wet and were a bit late. I have been a fan of Marina since before the release of her first album and have been desperate to see her for years! I was so happy I finally got the chance now it was also her dads birthday and so the entire audience sang happy birthday to him. Marina also said it was her favourite ever London gig <3

We had enough time for a quick pre show drink in the end. All I can say is, you can take the boy out of Helsinki but you can't take the Pear Cider out of my glass!

The stage

The new entrance to Kings Cross! It's like a space ship!

Here are two of my favourite Marina songs <3
