London and a little shops tour

as expected, it was cold, rainy and windy last friday when we arrived in London,
so yes one of the best things to do was a little shops tour !

comme prévu, il faisait froid, pluvieux et venteux lorsque nous sommes arrivés à
Londres, vendredi dernier, alors oui, le meilleur passe-temps était de faire les boutiques !

What not to love about Liberty ?
I adored the stationary department but it's mainly the Assouline books corner
which made me feel like staying there forever

Comment ne pas aimer Liberty ?
J'ai adoré le rayon carterie mais c'est surtout le coin dédié aux éditions Assouline
qui m'a donné envie d'y rester pour toujours !


a little further, the impossible rows of sewing machines at All Saints made me smile
un peu plus loin, les rangées démentes de machines à coudre chez All Saints m'ont fait sourire

I was very curious to discover Anthropologie
J'étais très curieuse de découvrir Anthropologie

What do you think of the truncated jug in the cupboard ? Interesting, non ?
Que pensez-vous de la cruche tronquée sur l'étagère ? Intéressant, non ?

and after roaming through the food hall at Selfridges,
what a delight to find,
a few days after, in Portobello
this Portuguese pastry shop where we had our favorite pasteis de belem.

et après avoir parcouru de long en large le département gourmet de Selfridges,
quel plaisir de découvrir, quelques jours après,
à Portobello, cette pâtisserie portugaise
où nous avons pu savourer nos pasteis de belem tant aimés
