It’s been just over a week now and I can’t believe we’ve been to Japan. Topher and I had the most amazing time. Of course I’m going to have to break down the whole thing into many blog posts because just like our honeymoon, it wasn’t a one destination trip.
One thing we did differently this trip was for the first time, we vlogged the entire thing. Like a ton. I have so much footage to edit my way through so I guess that’s my plans sorted for the next couple of months. It will definitely keep me occupied while waiting for our next Florida holiday in October.
So for now I will leave you with the little three minute trailer I made! Let me know what you think.
This is shaping up to be a good week for me finishing things, right? As you may have been able to see on my blog last year, I made my annual trip to Jordan.
The main difference with this trip was that Topher’s sister Emma came with us. She’d never been to the Middle East before (unless you count a stint in Abu Dhabi’s airport) so she was keen to cross it off the list.
As I did with the last trip, I made a video. I love doing them and it’s a great way to look back on the memories. You can check out the finished video on Youtube here:

I started off the day with breakfast at The Breakfast Club in Hoxton where I had the most delicious waffles. Though I’m usually a pancake aficionado, the Elvis Waffle was calling my name. Atop a waffle sits caramelised banana, peanut butter, greek yoghurt and maple syrup. Nom.
Then it was off to the Columbia Road Flower Market where I may have spotted a celebrity. Check out the video to see who it was. It was my only celeb spotting of the day but a pretty good one, especially for a Potterhead such as myself.
I also finally got to go to the V&A museum which is something I’ve been wanting to do for about a decade. The building itself was gorgeous as was all the exhibits inside. The fashion section in particular reminded me how much I used to love fashion when I was a teen and in my early twenties. How times have changed.
Does my bum look big in this?
My final stop was Liberty – another place I’ve never been inside even though I’ve lived in London. What a gorgeous building! And it was fun to window shop too.
I also paid a visit to Japan Centre to buy some treats. I don’t think we’ll be going to the real Japan until 2019 now so I thought it would be nice to get some snacks. And I finally tried something matcha flavoured. Topher wasn’t a fan but I loved it.
Where would you go if you had only one day in London?
