I’ve been spending lots of time around Carnaby in central London lately – not that I’m complaining! It’s a lovely, inspiring place to shop, work and chill out. Whether taking snaps for a job, filming for a personal project or meeting up with friends, it’s to the cute tucked away Kingly Court that I’ve been heading. If you haven’t been – you must because I know you’ll love it! There aren’t many places in London where there are hubs of truly indie and creative shops where you can have tea, make a hat, have a massage, buy baby clothes, an accessory for yourself and ensure it’s all handmade, customised or Made in Britain.

But in Kingly, exploring and discovering these places is all part of the fun! That’s what me, Daniela and Sherin did the other day. We delved into Atelier Millinery on the first balcony over-looking the courtyard where the wonderfully friendly Milliners eagerly told us about some brilliant workshops they hold. Eyeing up cute birdcage bow headbands and fascinators, I’m very tempted to go and make the head accessory I’ve always wanted! From reading their leaflet, they offer 8 different courses starting from just £50 – isn’t it brilliant that shops give you the chance to say “Oh this? I made it!”

Naturally, after all that fun hat-trying-on, we neeeeded tea! So up we went again to the top floor to the newly extended Camellia’s Teahouse which I love visiting when I want to get away. It’s so calming in there and I absolutely LOVE smelling the ‘Tea Wall’ and chatting to the super-friendly Lubna, a qualified Homeopath who started the tearoom from her love of mixing medicinal tealeaves together. Today, she still has her various blends mixed in the UK. Try the deliciously moist carrot cake and Turkish Apple Tea- too good!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Appreciate it!
