A Weekend in London with Style Bloggers: Metrogypsie & Prettyfaze


Just a few weeks ago Metrogypsie and Prettyfaze, both of whom are Nigerian fashion/style blogger, decided to go on a weekend long date with each other in the England’s Capital City, London.

They made a tour of their stay there and took pictures at some not-so-usual locations.

Portobello Road


Popularly acclaimed as the world’s largest antiques and collectibles market, this funky street long Notting Hill location has over 1000 sellers.
From pre-loved to vintage to hand-made goods, there is a plethora of items one can get from here.

Made really popular by the film, Notting Hill. Portobello Market takes up most of what is actually more properly called Portobello Road, it stretches for around two miles, although on a crowded Saturday afternoon it takes quite a while to walk from end to end.

Red Telephone Box

Sir Giles Gilbert Scott designed this telephone kiosk around cities in the UK, Malta, Bermuda and Gibraltar.

Although they stopped production with the advent of the KX series in 1985, many still stand in Britain.
The paint color used is known as “currant red” and is defined by a British Standard, BS 381C-539.

It is a great backdrop for street style pictures in London, bloggers and fashionistas alike, love to strike an un-looking pose with this box.
