London Trip: Brick Lane

Hello Everyone! A few weeks ago my friend Liviy and I decided to go on an adventure. Both of us had always wanted to go to Brick Lane market so it seemed to be the perfect place for go. Unfortunately we were going on a Sunday when there were a lot of disruptions to the train lines which meant by the time we got there it was pretty much ending.

Before heading into the actual market we spied an undercover vintage market. We were so excited and proceeded to go and have a snoop around- we weren't disappointed. It was full of awesome clothes records and jewelery and we probably spent a bit too long there. The one issue I do have with vintage and pre-owed good stalls in these types of settings is how over priced things are. The idea of pre-owed and up-cycled goods is that they are cheap for savy shoppers and thrifters. This really is an illusion since looking 'indie' has become actually pretty mainstream and with stores just as Urban Outfitters setting the benchmark for this type of look these products are now in line, if not more expensive than brand new clothes.

There is some seriously tasty looking food at this market.. 

Again we spent too long in the Vintage market so all the food stalls were shutting. Luckily we were able to track down a Wagamama where we had such a nice meal. I particularly recommend the Yasai Pad Thai!

We then finished off our meal with a milkshake. It just so happened that on this Sunday GBK were doing milkshakes for £3. I had an Oreo milkshake and it was honestly the best milkshake I've ever had-putting other milkshake chains to shame!

We decided to then take a trip to Oxford Circus for a quick browse before getting a train home. All in all a very successful day!
