London is an INCREDIBLE city
I was fortunate enough to have a work trip to get over there while my little sister was studying abroad! Even though I was busy with work during the week, my sister came up from Barcelona over the weekend, and we had the best sisterly time exploring and finding the chicest slices! And we did this ALL in one weekend, so whether you’re there for just a short trip or a whole week plus+ my “Chic Travel Guide Around London” is all you need for everything classic, pink and sweet!!
Covent Garden Market
Looking for a place to walk around and window shop, while munching on Laduree macarons? This is your place! Cobble stone streets, restaurants, shopping, what more can you ask for!?

Sketch – The Gallery
Trust me, when you plan your next trip, you’re going to want to make a reservation here! So girly and fun.
Sketch – “The Gallery” is a charming afternoon sipping tea and eating little bites.

Pink Doors in Notting Hill
When you save a pin on Pinterest, and visit it in person years later – it is a surreal moment! I explored all the streets of Notting Hill just to find the pink doors and to take this picture.. and I’m so glad I did!
The streets in Notting Hill are unlike anything I’ve ever walked down. Take a morning to walk through and explore the refreshing, colorful homes of Notting Hill! You’ll thank me!
Of course a stop at Harrods is a must! From top to bottom, I love getting lost in this place! From the Egyptian escalators to the shoe floor (my favorite!) to the evening gowns, this place is amazing!
Need a hostess gift? Pick up some flowers and a bottle of wine in the market downstairs. Also have amazing souvenirs to bring home to family and friends!
87-135 Brompton Rd, London SW1X 7XL, United Kingdom
Of course I had to stop by and see the church where Kate got married! This place is spectacular to see in real life. It’s just around the corner from Big Ben, and the gift store has great keepsakes to bring home!
20 Deans Yd, London SW1P 3PA, United Kingdom
Kensington Palace is definitely a place to see, and I would also recommend buying a ticket to explore inside! The entire palace has rooms full of history, pictures and special moments. The top floor is like walking through a time machine of fashion and history, capturing important events throughout the lives of the Royal Family, and how their outfits have changed through time. I especially loved the framed Vogue magazine covers!
Kensington Gardens, London W8 4PX, United Kingdom
Peggy Porschen Cakes
When cakes are just as cute as the Baker who is making them, you know they HAVE to be good! Stop by the parlor for a slice of cake, pick up some adorable sugar cutout cookies to bring home for your loved ones and walk around the charming neighborhood of white homes with black doors and lanterns.
116 Ebury St, London SW1W 9QQ, United Kingdom
You know this iconic place! When in London you want to stroll across this street.
3 Abbey Road, St John’s Wood
Stop by for lunch to taste the world! An amazing outdoor/indoor food market to walk through. It literally has everything imaginable! From Indian to 357938 different types of cheeses – and a grilled cheese stand! To every baked good imaginable to pizza, sandwiches, olives – I could literally go on and on! This place is awesome, and you will leave with a full stomach and a happy heart.

Kings Cross Station, London N1C 4AP, United Kingdom
You remember BIG BEN from all the childhood stories that were read to you. It is even more memorable and impressive in person.
Buckingham Palace is the London residence and principal workplace of the reigning monarch of the United Kingdom. Located in the City of Westminster, the palace is often at the centre of state occasions and royal hospitality. Wikipedia

To get around the city, I walked, traveled on “The Tube” and hopped on and off the red buses. The city is fairly simple to figure out! But for extra assistance, I downloaded the App “CityMapper“. I would type in my locations and then screenshot my directions, (when I was on WiFi to save data), and used that to get around everywhere!
