A Day in Chelsea, London

Hello everyone, and happy September! It’s good to be back blogging after not having done any all of August. I just returned home from an amazing trip to London, all thanks to Visit London (click here to learn more about that!), and I’m so excited to share our adventures with you. Get ready, there are going to be quite a few London posts coming your way…

First, let me introduce you to the fabulous gal who came along with me to London! Sam is my best friend from college, where we were (and still are) both sisters of Delta Gamma. We studied abroad in London together four summers ago, and we were beyond excited to be back in our favorite city together. Here we are in Piccadilly Circus four years ago:

Our flight left late Thursday evening, and we arrived in the Big Smoke on a gorgeous Friday morning and went straight to our hotel – the stunning Hilton on Park Lane in Mayfair, directly across from Hyde Park. I mean, this view…


We spent our first day and night exploring the city, eating amazing food, and preparing for the next few days.

I was ready to step-up my brunch game on this trip (no surprise there) and had made quite a few reservations ahead of time. First up: The Ivy Chelsea Garden, a Chelsea hotspot, for Saturday morning.



We were greeted warmly by a hostess, and couldn’t stop admiring the beautiful decor (and people) of the restaurant as we walked to our table. Sam and I both ordered the best Eggs Benedict we’ve ever had, with fresh OJ. The atmosphere was lovely, and the service was excellent. Do make your reservations well in advance if you’re interested in paying a visit!

Perfect brunch

Afterwards, we walked off our meal along the King’s Road and checked out a food market right by the Saatchi Gallery. We then decided to wander down a road where we saw some colored homes from across the street, and lo and behold, we had stumbled upon the road that we’ve see all over Instagram! Each house along the street is painted in a gorgeous color, and even if social media didn’t exist, I think it’s safe to say people would still make their way to this street to take pics. I truly wonder what the owners of these homes must think to have people photograph their houses on a daily basis…

Sam was a good sport about taking my “model” pictures for me 😉 Our day in Chelsea was the perfect way to begin our trip, and I’m so excited to share more of our London adventure with you!
