Around London Town: Meeting Bloggers and Hanging with Oscar

Woo hoo! I can restart my "Around London Town" series while I am here.

I've already been in London for 12 days and I've done SO MUCH. I don't think I've taken as many pictures as I should have, but I do have a few to share with you. The guy you see above is my new love, Oscar. We've moved into together rather quickly. I cook for him all the time. It's a good match.

We take long walks in the morning AND at night! Our favorite spot is walking along the river...

I like looking at the wild daffodils, Oscar likes peeing on them. Ha.

While not hanging with Oscar, I've been catching up with friends, old and new! One such new friend is a blogger. Miranda was an absolute pleasure to meet: intelligent, kind, and funny! Thanks for coming out, Miranda, and picking quite possibly the cutest cafe in Barnes.

 We went to the cafe attached to Olympic Cinemas. I HIGHLY recommend it!

For a lightish lunch, the onion and goat cheese tart is divine! 

I'll most likely do a few more of these posts while I'm here, so watch out for more London goodness!


  1. Oscar! He's so freakin cute! I bet he's a great roomie :)

  2. Aw, I'm so excited to be in this post!! It was SO much fun to meet you - I had the best afternoon! Looking forward to hanging out some more whilst you're still in London :) xxx

  3. I'm from London and despite living all over the UK it'll always be my favourite place! Hope you have a great trip... (great blog by the way, the design is great) xx


  4. I want a little doggie companion like Oscar!

  5. Oh my goodness, Oscar is adorable!!!! London is just so beautiful...I'll hopefully make it back there soon - such an inspiring city! Have so much fun, Ashley.

  6. Your blog

    i'm always up for a trip recap, so post all the pics ya want!

  9. It looks like the weather there has been quite sunny - jealous! Next time we've got to meet up!

  10. I don't want to jinx myself, but the weather has been unusually sunny for this time of year!! I think it's raining on the weekend though, lol.

  11. Have you ever been to the Chelsea Physic Garden? If not, we should definitely go! It's lovely! Will you still be in London on March 30th? That's when I start Easter holidays and will have 2 weeks off myself, so will be around during the week a lot more :) xxx

  12. I should still be around :D and i have not been, so let's do it!
