Oh, I like the second photograph! Wish milky white skin was still considered lovely in Western culture, at least the U.S., it's all "tan, tan, tan", and it's not that (natural) tans aren't beautiful, they are, but ah, I admittedly get fed up with being ridiculed for my pale skin!

Maybe I should go to London...they're paler over there! :D Anyway, enjoy London! ♥ I haven't been before though, so afraid I don't have any recommendations.

Wow! Lucky you. I've never been to London, so I can't really recommend anything. Have fun though!

Hummingbird Bakery on Portabello Road is a MUST! or the Primrose Bakery in Covent Garden, if you're a fan of cupcakes.
Primrose Bakery is more like a gift shop too, decked out in 50's decor with formica topped tables and vinyl covered chairs etc.
Hummingbird is more a grab and go kinda bakery. I like to go to Hummingbird around mid-morning before the tourist rush, so I can sit outside on one of the few tables and chairs, eating my cupcake with a fork and sipping a latte. Bliss!

Also, look up Columbia Road Market and well, Columbia Road itself in the East End. Great for Vintage shopping.
Portabello Market is usually a massive scrum with tourists but, if you can make it down to the vintage section I'd be aware that prices get bumped up just because it's Portabello road. If you want more value for money Brick Lane and the surrounding area is the place to go.
Also, great bagel places on Brick Lane. Go to the one with the white sign outside, NOT the yellow sign.

Aah so lucky... London's great. They've just launched the bike hire scheme now aswell so you can whizz around town on the cheap... if you want more info I can recommend the Globalista London report - they recommend the higher end hotels and restaurants but it's pretty comprehensive on culture/sightseeing/shopping sections...

Verde and co just opposite spitalfields for proper cappuccino and lots of food porn!

Also the charity shops in Highgate or Kensington for designer bargains.

And Cafe 1001 for cheap beer and the best outside atmosphere.
