Today started off with a tour of Albertopolis (read here), followed by a quick visit to the National History Museum (read here). The girls and I were starving so we visited both Whole Foods and Marks & Spencer: Simply Foods. When we arrived at High Street Kensington I immediately bought a Ben’s Cookies Double Chocolate Chip – I couldn’t resist.
The first stop was Marks & Spencer Simply Foods, where we found the cheesesticks, salsa, and hummus that Steven’s family provided us with during their brunch at Bayswater. We couldn’t find individual packaging for the hummus nor the salsa, so we decided to come back another time when we weren’t so hungry.
The next stop was Whole Foods, where the girls bought a £3.00 focaccia to share – it looked (and tasted) delicious, so it was definitely a bargain find! I also spied a few containers of fresh cream for £2.00 – thoughts for another time. The Belgian Chocolate Mousse with Honeycomb looked tempting, but not tempting enough for a purchase.
We met a man who plans to marry someone from Florida on the elevator downstairs – apparently he enjoyed the sunny weather more than the London rain!
Then we were finally done with our grocery shopping, so we headed back to the tube station. I bought an Energy Lift fruit shake from Boost Juice Bars – so far my favorite find, drink-wise.
The girls went to grab some other items, so I went ahead and walked around a bit to explore the station. I was really tempted to enter Scribbler, a stationary store – the postcards were so adorable and beautifully decorated! However I was able to resist, and we made our way down to our tube stop.
The tube stop was insanely crowded today, so we definitely had to invade ‘personal space’ bubbles along the way. Unfortunately we were all split up so we couldn’t really see each other during the journey home, but luckily we were all pros by now so we knew which stops to step off.
