Career Girl Diary: A Day In Notting Hill

IMG_4835

This weekend the girls decided to go out for a little trip to Notting Hill. We started our day with our weekly CGD brunch at a cute place. Notting Hill is so charming! We walked along the perfectly manicured streets and each picked out our ‘dream home’. Mine was a cute house with a pink front door. From there, we went to Portobello Road Market.  The famous Portobello Market is really fun and well worth your time.

London has many markets, but one of the best is most definitely the world-famous Portobello Road Market! The mile- long street market sells a wide variety of goods, clothes, antiques and even food, with different items being sold on different days.It is open every day except for Sunday.We had a lovely few hours wandering around and discovering all the different cafes, shops etc. The famous bookshop still has the same atmosphere of the famous movie.
