Green Street. My oh my, how many people did we ask where Green Street is. So many people and only one (yes just one!) told us how to get there.

When we eventually arrived, we saw just four of five stores and thought that was it. We’ve spent quite a lot of time in those stores. When we walked along, there is was: the real Green Street. The Green Street which really was a lot street full of South Asian stores selling clothes, sweets and jewelry.

Indian/pakistani sweets, how I love them! They’re actually extremely dangerous to me because when I start eating it, I can’t stop untill I’ve finished it al! I managed to control myself this time. There’s a famous Indian sweets store called Ambala. We both bought some sweets to take care and give to our family. They were all so happy with it! I’ve bought 3 normal boxes and 2 cute little blue tins.

For lunch we had a samosa and a pakora. The samosa was delicious and so was the sauce!

As for London Eye, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, there’s not really much to say. They’re just beautiful! Unfortunately we didn’t have enough time to go into the London Eye. It was the last day of our weekend in London and a few hours later we’d fly back home. Just see for yourself how gorgeous the historical interest of London is. I love it!

With some simple black pumps and my leopard printed LK Bennet dress, my Flashies really completed my look.

I chose a golden arrow, a beautiful black feather and two of these: > > in black and gold.

They’re very easy to apply. Remember the free tattoos you got as a kid with a piece of chewing gum? Just put it on your skin, wet the tattoo with some water or a piece of wet cloth and off you go.  This works exactly the same way and it stayed on for at least five days .
