Upper East Side

The LDN Diaries UK Fashion Blogger

After visiting Drama Parlour with Danny on Saturday, we decided to take a wander round the area as East is somewhere we don’t often go. We stopped off in a park area in Bethnal Green where a few fuzzy friends decided to say hello, they definitely weren’t camera-shy that’s for sure and so after snapping them I decided to take a few outfit pictures to show you some new pieces I’ve picked up lately.

If you couldn’t tell from the leaves in these pictures, autumn is most definitely here and so is the colder weather. I picked up this herringbone coat last week in Zara and I’m so glad I did as it hasn’t been off my back since. I love the longer length and even though it’s long you can wear with heels or flats. It’s warm enough for now but in winter I can layer it with plenty of jumpers and a big warm scarf.

Drama Parlour

Drama Parlour East London

Based a few minutes up the road from Bethnal Green station and opposite the V&A Museum of Childhood is Drama Parlour, a new and cool salon tucked away upstairs in The Dundee Arms on Cambridge Heath Road. When you enter the pub, you walk to the back and up the stairs and just like in Alice in Wonderland you go from the dark to a bright light leading you to the Drama Parlour salon, in this case the bright light was a funky neon sign. I was greeted by the salon owner Victoria Saunders, who has been doing hair for over 20 years and has a pretty impressive client list to boot.

My Little Fashion Box

My Little Box is a monthly beauty subscription box and last month’s box (September) was a fashion edition to coincide with fashion week. I recently got sent the box by the lovely people at Cointreau who had a mini bottle of Cointreau within the box. I have never subscribed to a beauty box before, even though I like the idea of them, being a blogger I do get a lot of beauty products to try so I’ve never really thought they were that worthwhile for me. However My Little Box really caught my eye and I loved the cute style of it and what was included, so I thought I would share my thoughts on it in this video. The box itself is £11 per month plus £3.95 pp so about £15 a month.

I’d love to hear if you a subscription box and what you think of this one if you have tried it or any others?

Afternoon Tea At The Ivy Market Grill

Afternoon Tea The Ivy Market Grill

The Ivy Market Grill in Covent Garden opened at the end of last year, situated right in the heart of Covent Garden opposite the market. Not to be confused with the main ‘The Ivy’ in Covent Garden, although they are both part of Caprice Holdings. The Market Grill is an all day restaurant aimed at residents and visitors to the area to be able to drop in for breakfast, lunch, dinner and on this occasion afternoon tea.

Danny and I are not unfamiliar to an afternoon tea in London and so decided to try out The Ivy Market Grill’s afternoon tea offering this week. We were seated straight away in one of the leather seated booths and the bar immediately caught my eye as I loved the style of it. The interior inside has a nod to the late 19th century industrial age with mosaic floor tiles and marble tops in the cafe area.
