After an appointment near London Bridge, I went for a walk around Bermondsey and visited the White Cube gallery.
The exhibition on at the time wasn’t really my jam but it was fun to wander around nonetheless.
As I was meeting friends for dinner on Brick Lane, I headed over with time to spare so I checked out the vintage market too.
Dinner was a delicious bargain at Brick Lane Tandoori with Em, Haz and Han.
Book through The Fork for 50% off and thank me later 😉
I hadn’t seen Marianne for around 3 years since she’d moved to Canada (and the whole pancetta situ), so it was so nice to be able to catch up and introduce her to one of my fave restaurants: Chew Fun!
The Whitechapel Gallery.
Return of the Mac!
I thought I’d been to Tate Britain before but it turns out that I hadn’t, so I was very pleasantly surprised and very grateful to have been able to see so much great art for free.
Even the stairway is aesthetic.
Such a striking display as soon as you head up the flight of stairs.
Getting ready to head to God’s Own Junkyard with Bushbaby.
Cool bits in some of the Walthamstow Village shops.
Obsessed with The Little Mandarin.
The cutest macarons!
The middle was a bit too thick and sweet for me but Han said that the pistachio bear one was the best she’d ever had.
We grabbed some yummy poke bowls for lunch next door at Peeld and they’re really generous portions.
Of course, no Hannah & Queenie Day Out is complete without at least one charity shop, so we headed into the town centre to check them out.
This is possibly the most spacious and least chaotic/overstuffed Traid store I’ve visited.
Ending the day in a café that we stumbled upon.
Not a bad view while walking to the bus stop.
I had to pick up some medication from my old doctors in Shepherds Bush so decided to make the most of being in West London by hitting up my beloved Holland Park.
Despite having lived so close for 2.5 years, I never got around to checking out the free exhibitions at the Design Museum so I’m glad that I finally did.
The evening before Em’s wedding, the girls and I headed to A La Turka in Canterbury.
While I don’t usually gravitate towards Mediterranean/Turkish food when eating out, I thoroughly enjoyed my seafood casserole with bulgur wheat.
THE BIG DAY!
Huge congrats to the new Mr and Mrs Powlson!
The smoke bombs were so fun and I can’t wait to see how the professional photos turned out.
Such a gorgeous day!
And the bouquet lives on!
