The Invasion of Whisty… North London

Hello, ‘Wish you were here’,

Postcards from London…

The City of London, from Highgate Bridge, London N6 – The invasion began, my mates room, trashed as soon as my bag landed. So out we go and straight into town

First stop was, lunch at Sketch with Sophie from ASOS… Mine was the black bread Croque Monsieur

If portaloos were like this… the bathrooms at Sketch, Conduit Street, London WC1 W1S

Evening drinks with Amy and DSThe Boogaloo, Highgate, London N6

The Boogaloo Moggy… How much do I want that to be a G’n’T…?

Feeling nostalgic for the ’50’s at the ‘World Famous Boogaloo Juke’

The Notting Hill Carnival, 2011Passes for the fabulous Wrangler Carnival Party, at Bumpkin, London W11

Our welcome party at Westbourne Park Tube station

Our talented and incredibly down to earth entertainment for the evening, Maverick Sabre. In case you’ve ever wondered, being half cockney (he was born in Hackney) half culchie, (raised in New Ross, Co. Wexford) gives you one hell of a mad accent. Even so, he played a bloody beautiful acoustic set. Image via glam.co.uk

Post Party; neon specs and pints at The Good Mixer, Camden Town, London NW1

Hair of the Dog…

Whisky Cider = Whisty Heaven

Getting my tourist on. Note actual rucksack.At Highgate Cemetery, armed with map and nerves of steel. This is one atmospheric graveyard.

The gigantic stone head of Karl Marx on his Tombstone at Highgate Cemetery

Angel tombstones

Peaceful in the woods

And back to the land of the living…A rainbow at Aces & Eights Saloon Bar, Tufnell Park, London NW5

Curry heaven, London E1

Back to Highgate Village, and one for the road

Yours,

Whisty Xx

Massive thanks to DS, Amy, Sophie, Holly at Wrangler, and Ashley, for graciously returning a favour. Xxx

    My old stomping ground! My first London flat was in Tufnell Park before I moved to Highbury. Love Highgate Cemetery too – very atmospheric. x

    I’d love to go to Highgate Cemetery – keep meaning to, but haven’t got around to it yet. Love your Ted outfit as well, very smart!
