CN Traveler with Christy Turlington on the cover and Fortune Magazine's Investor Guide for 2014. I have recently started trading stocks so I've been spending a lot of time recently researching the markets and the best stocks to purchase. It is a lot more stressful than I thought.
At the Shangri-La lobby lounge. Their Spanish Fries are AMAZING!
This book came out a couple days ago. I was actually looking forward to the release as it seemed exactly like my type of book..it talks about the Ritz Hotel in Paris during WWII. Can't wait to start reading it!
Some random photos taken around London! I think I'm due for another vacation soon as I'm nearly done all the posts from there (finally). The photo above is Kensington Palace. Rydges hotel, one of the hotels I stayed at, was about a 15-minute walk from Kensington Gardens so I took a walk there one day.
It was a nice walk with lots of nice cars along the way, including one of my favourites..the Mercedes G
I walked around the gardens for a bit, but didn't spend too much time there as it looked like it was going to rain (like always in London). I liked it though - will need to go back again sometime the next time I visit London, on a sunny day.
Having a mille-feuille at PAUL. I love their patisseries.
I stayed at a hotel close to Kings Cross station for a few nights. It's a great base for travelling all around the city.
I love AQ/AQ. I'm not sure if any of their clothes can be found here in Toronto, so I had to pay a visit to the store on Carnaby Street when I was in London. I bought a dress there (which I love - will post it in a future post!) then went to have lunch at Liberty.
Another few nights, my hotel was close to Victoria station and about a 15-min walk to Buckingham Palace. I walked there one night for some night photography, and went back again during the day so I could walk through St. James' Park too.
Another 15-min walk from Buckingham Palace you will reach Big Ben & The London Eye.
I flew to Paris for several days near the end of my trip, then flew back to London before coming back to Toronto the next morning. I didn't bother going back into the city for just one night, so I stayed at the airport/Yotel, - a nice little airport hotel. Their rooms are really cool. I booked it for half the night so I can take a quick nap and shower before catching my flight.
In the morning, I went for a quick breakfast at Cafe Rouge. Their pain perdu is delicious.
Then lunch at Oriel before going on my flight. I ate here a couple years ago too, when I was flying back home from London. Sat at almost the same spot.
