As part of my job I'm doing a facebook giveaway of a 7" Android tablet. Its very handy, handbag sized and I love the operating system (I personally have an Android tablet and it is great)

I promise I'll update this blog more in the near future, but Hillsong Conference Europe is this week, hence I'm working/interning/serving/volunteering, every single day.
I appreciate you all.

On the Saturday we were rather wiped out as following our day in London we'd had Youth Encounter, which was mental as per and also quite late. So we decided to stick around Surrey. We went for a walk by the Thames and ended up at Hampton Court Palace gardens (I couldn't afford entry :()The English Garden is full of roses which were beautiful.
I managed to fall at church quite badly though, and was later to discover that I'd burst the liquid capsule under my patella..so the next day we couldn't do as much as I'd wanted to. We headed to China Town as Karli had missed having legit Asian food (it's pretty terrible in Edinburgh in general, which is surprising as there's so many international students). We also checked out Covent Garden where we picked up these gorgeous macaroons from Laduree. I personally prefer the ones I bought in Brighton last year though. Definitely heading back there.
Not the best end.

The first time I went to Brick Lane was when I was preparing for my GCSE art project on street art. Since then I've loved all forms of it. Brick Lane has some truly outstanding pieces.

Next we headed East. I love Brick Lane, its one of my favourite places due to its culture clash. One end is totally Bangladeshi where we shared a curry + paratha (Indian food is not so common in the US hence why we decided to stop for some). Then the other end is totally hipster. We stumbled upon a secret sample sale, a vintage fashion market (underground may I add) and the most independent coffee shops in one strip I have ever seen. Along the way we saw the most incredible street art.

I think these next few pictures speak for themselves. I wish I had more money, then I'd have sampled like everything.This guy was so careful in pouring out his bruschetta topping, it was almost an art.
This was the 'Tree House'...apparently no adults allowed, but I'm 20, that doesn't really count does it?
Obviously, I had to add my name to the graffiti. I tried to be creative & failed. Naomi it was.
Next stop; East London.

In my last post I mentioned how Karli wanted to see street art. Here's some great examples. I don't know who this artist is, but these pieces are magnificently huge.
Things you'd hear around your neighbourhood. A lot of them you're more likely to hear in the North/Midlands (where I grew up) which was fun to see. Maybe that's part of the point though, to get Londoners to have a slightly greater neighbour-mentality.
More to come...
