Bill's cafe-restaurant Soho branch

While the snow and ice slowly recedes into dirty slushy mess, not so great for non-grip heels on icy footpaths, oh do beware of damage potholes I tend to walk into them without realising.  My brother Ken and I decided to visit West London as tourists, we equipped ourselves with brick dslrs and cursing each other on the pros and cons of our camera models, at least mine a Canon 5D MK2 is much bigger and heavier than his small Canon 400D, size matters, pah!  In Notting Hill, I showed him the infamous blue door on Westbourne Park Road from the film Notting Hill, I wasn’t too delighted with his gratified response? ‘Is that it?’  He was disinterested, ahh thanks Bro.  So no snap shots, we skipped to Holland Park to catch the Peacocks and of course to shoot my emergency outfit shots.

My outfit: Men’s shirt and cricket sweater both from Uniqlo, leather skirt c/o Muubaa, wool coat c/o Benetton, DIY mittens by me, boucle boxy bag c/o MCM, white tights from Falke, boots (from 10 years ago) from Nine West, rose gold Layla headphones c/o Frends at (product review coming soon). Outfit shots by my lil bro Ken

    Gorgeous photos! I love the fringe and the pink lips. You make me so tempted to get my fringe cut back in. Don’t know if I am ready to back there – so much upkeep. Loving the headphones and mittens too. Looks like you had a lovely time catching up with your bro – I look forward to seeing your photos when you go and visit him.

    @Shini Bro was stuck at home for nearly a week cos of the stupid snow, it was a lovely date….an expensive one. He’ll need to treat me loads when I visit him in Korea.

    I used to go jogging and see the peacocks in Holland Park when I used to live in Queensway, the Japanese garden was my favourite and a great place for contemplation. Love this post of your outing very much.

    The blue door?? I love the movie but had NO idea about that blue door. Must check out the movie again. LOL! Yup, size does matter. I notice that if I have a prime lens on my camera, NOBODY notices but the minute I slap on something bigger, it gets pawed by strangers. Weird.
