A Sunday well spent!


What better way to spend to motivate yourself to get out of bed on a Grey, dreary, cold January morning then a trip to Columbia Road flower market?! The temptation of mooching around the little boutique shops, spot of brunch and treating yourself to a nice bouquet of flowers is hard to resist! This little market on a Sunday feels like worlds away from the rest of London, the old terrace housing and distinct lack of high street chains makes it a joy to escape to.

The rows of old terrace housing transport you away from the from the high rise hustle and bustle of the rest of London.

The sweet smell of Hyacinths is a wonderful reminder that spring is around the corner, three bunches of these provides the best room scent!
