This quaint little vintage jewellery store is located directly off of Camden Passage in Islington.  It stocks unique pieces from the UK and USA (mainly California & NYC). Their carefully edited selection is comprised of jewellery that spans the decades, small handbags and the occasional item of clothing. It is the perfect little place to stop by when looking for a versatile statement piece at a reasonable price.

This quirky little restaurant is worth a visit either for a custom cocktail made with fresh ingredients & a dash of humour, or to tempt your palate with a scrumptious British meal.

Pigs’ cheeks slow braised in Somerset cider with potato and hazelnut mash, crackling (£13)

This store is a great little discovery that I happened to stumble upon while walking around Covent Garden. Don’t let the small size of the shop fool you. It is filled to the brim with an array of womenswear, menswear, home trinkets, and my personal favourite: vintage pins! (Which is the easiest way to add your own signature to an outfit).  Definitely worth stopping by if you are in the neighbourhood!
