So, we’re really getting in the Christmas-mood; planning this years decorations, food and of course gifts! We just love running around looking for the perfect little thing to make our beloved ones happy and which better place to do so than in London! Is there any place more beautiful (and christmas-inspiring!) than London? We don’t think so and at the moment we’re dreaming of a weekend (shopping) getaway! You know shop-eat-drink-sleep-shop- repeat. And of course we have one spesific place in mind, when it homes to the where to stay question.My Place 1, Bloomsbury!The boutique hotel is in the heart of London – in Soho – just a stones throw away from Oxford and Covent Garden, you know two of London’s must-shopping-spots. And that’s not all; the design, it’s amazing! Mid century modern, both vintage and new design pieces – just like home! We wouldn’t mind any of the rooms, but My Place 1 – one of the two penthouse suits – with its dark wood floors, dark wood panelling, marble bathrooms with a walk-in shower and masses of lights is on our minds!
For a bit hectic weekend getaway like this, where the main activities are running around and shopping, light and smart packing is the key! Think wearable pieces that can be combined with eachother in different ways, comfy shoes and warm yet not too warm pieces (balance, beacuse the worst thing while shopping is getting annoyed by the heat!). We’re thinking platforms with light fur, some good old black jeans, a turtleneck, blazer and of course a shirt!
