Fabulous Fridays: Notting Hill

I know that I said I wouldn’t write about London for a while. But when I recently found myself watching the movie all over again to remember the vibe of the place, I knew that I just had to bow to the muse. Incidentally, was it Notting Hill that made the movie famous or was it the other way around?
I happened to just love this London neighbourhood. It is quirky, with a plethora of vintage clothing stores and little boutiques.

You’ll find art everywhere – not just in galleries.

The houses are painted in the most fascinating and vibrant shades.

It had such a friendly, relaxed atmosphere that it’s hard to believe we were not too far from central London. Notting Hill truly felt like an area of London that I wouldn’t mind living in. Of course, that assumption may be based on the number of bookstores that we came across.

Yes, it definitely felt curiously homely, which is not usually an adjective that I associate with London.

So there you have it – Notting Hill in a nutshell.

And of course, I could not resist sharing this:
