Having spent a few days in London, I’ve found myself finding little places every now and then to hide for a bit and chill. London is busy. Very busy and where I live is not. I feel like I’ve travelled to a different world. Don’t get me wrong I’ve been to London before and I knew what to expect, but not like this. Not on my own.
I’ve found myself wandering round the streets of Oxford and Regent, and took a left onto Carnaby Street and joined their Christmas Party. My goal was to find somewhere I could hibernate for an hour or so to get myself together before heading back onto the tube to catch my train back up North. I found the perfect place.
The Espresso Bar, Mozzino. This place is right up my street. If there’s one word to describe this place it would be cool. It’s just seriously cool. With contrasting modern and vintage interiors, old school coffee grinders, and an excellent playlist, it feels seriously cool to be here. I’m able to sit in the window (something I don’t usually do at home, but I’m in London and people watching is seriously addictive here) with my coffee and take everything in around me.
One thing I’ve enjoyed about London is seeing all the people go about their daily business and looking fly as hell whilst doing so. The street style has inspired me, and makes me think about how it’s actually okay to express yourself in the way of style. Something that I often feel odd doing.
Hours later and I’m still here, nursing my huge glass of green tea, munching on a tomato and basil grilled sandwich, having Jamie XX and fleetwood mac bless my ears, taking in my last few minutes in London.
