Happy Sunday everyone!! I am writing this post from the other side of the pond right now in London! Having a bloody good time over hear. I have became something like a regular over here and have really started to rub elbows with creatives and common folk.

Day 1: We flew into London on a redeye and landed bright and early at 8am. First thing we had to do was go to the ATM to get some  cash (British Pounds) to survive and then we grabbed a oyster card  to use the tube for transportation, which is basically like a metro card for us New Yorkers. When then made the hour and a half journey from the airport in west London to  Shoreditch in east London which most people compare to Williamsburg back in NYC. We were a little jet lag and after a 5 hr nap we were ready to take on the day. We attended a London Fashion week presentation for the brand Ben Sherman and we had a chance to run into a friend I knew threw Instagram, Mr. Hat. He eventually turned into our tour guide for the trip and gave us inside tips to the lingo, places to go and what to expect from London.

Day 2: We had the chance to hang out in West London and went to go see Big Ben, then we strolled over to Convent Garden to eat at everyone's favorite Indian restaurant, Dishoom. By far the best Indian food I have had in a very long time, we actually tried to eat there on Day 1 but the wait was about an hour and 30 min. After changing and browsing shops and boutiques back near Shoreditch we headed back to our flat to get ready for the night time festivities. We met up with our tour guide Mr. Hat and started off with drinks at this place called Box Park, which is a cluster of pop-up boutiques from the best of London in fashion, food and culture. Afterwards we headed back to our flat to make some specialty cocktails in preparation for our first official night out and Mr. Hat took us to the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch which has an amazing club downstairs with the latest "Grime" rap music and we danced the night away with new friends.

Day 3: After a long night of dancing we had to have some brunch, so we went to have fish and chips at a pub in West London and met up with a family friend of the gents from Brothers and Craftwho happened to one of the singers for the amazing A capella group the Swingles. The Swingles actually travel around the world for more than half the year singing in places like Dubai and Denmark and open for the likes of Adele and Kelly Rowland. Safe to say brunch was amazing with fish and chips and great conversation. Then we went to Buckingham Palace to be a little touristy and snap some shops. Afterwards, we went back to Shoreditch to meet up with my new buddies (Pete and Jens) who I met on social media and they run this really cool Youtube page called Whats Good London. We both thought it would be cool to shoot a video for their Youtube page showing me around London and talking about fashion. So Pete and Jens showed us around London for a few hours, we ate at this amazing food market called Dinerama. Its comparable to Smorgasborg in Williamburg but inside of a market place with great music and TV's. After Dinerama, I gave the guys a gift, a few really good grooming products from Filmore Skin CareOur last stop of the day was this awesome undiscovered gem in East London called Discount Suit Company, which is an underground speakeasy type bar. If you guys are in London and have a chance to go here please grab my favorite drink called the "Conference Call". Well thats all for now, we are headed to Paris tomorrow on a 7.5 hour bus ride. I am sure to have plenty to write about that bus ride.

P.S. Jens from Whats Good Londonlost a bet with Pete and had to wear a fur coat all night with sunglasses as a joke (see the last picture) but it actually was a hit with everyone and he ended up getting more style compliments than me somehow. I guess I need to step my fur coat game up ha.
