Portobello Market

My Watermelon inspired nails (just comment and ask if you would like me to do a tutorial :))

Hey all! Sorry for the lack of posting recently! We were both on holiday last week, and lack of internet connection meant that the blog suffered! But we are back now and so happy to be posting again! I have been meaning to do this post for a while, a couple of weeks ago me and Jess went to Portobello market. It is our favourite market in London, we LOVE it so much and I really reccomend a visit. The mixture of vintage finds, bargains, food and a Spanish atmosphere (as you can see from that yummy looking paella underneath!) gives it such a great vibe! and a handful of churros and hot chocolate from one of the many food stalls is a the perfect combination to warm you up when walking around the  market stalls :)

Paella on a giant scale! (I'm in Heaven!)
I want one so much!  <3




Me and Jess both have a soft spot for anything vintage and we fell in love with these retro signs and at a stall on the way to the market, so we had to have a picture by them :)



We also saw some gorgeous vinatge cameras that we instantly wanted! We would really love to get one, but thought they might be too hard to use, what are your thoughts?




Some amazing jewellery that we saw at one of the stalls. I absolutely love these quirky carrot earrings!




Look out for an upcoming posts :) xx Paloma xx
