Every time I go out exploring in London I find somewhere new and that’s what I love about it so much. Around each corner are secret mews or a comfy seat covered with flowers, along each wall is an uncovered work of art from Banksy or a place that tourists can flock to take their forever selfies.
For months now me and Gemma (AKA GemsBlogStorey) have been wanting to meet and finally, after months of planning, (and almost cancelling due to my episode of food poisoning) we met in central London. She is the first Blogger and YouTuber that I have plucked up the courage to meet and it was such a lovely day from start to finish! Myself and Gemma spent so much time walking – 20,000 steps by the end of the day! And I realized just how much I had in common with her.
First of all we met at Liverpool Street Station and walked all the way from there to Covent Garden, seeing many sights along the way including part of the Queen’s Birthday celebrations and accidentally stumbling across a naked bike ride down Regent’s street…I don’t think I have ever seen so many naked bodies in my life! We both vlogged the day and it was so much fun going to new places that I had never been before.
Next we ventured to Neil’s Yard which was stunning in the summer sun. Covered in flowers, tall and floral terraced houses were buzzing with life as people sat and drank their coffee or read their morning paper. As we had already done a lot of walking by this point we ventured to a place that Gemma recommended. A vegan brunch cafe (eat) bychloe. Now all of you must be aware by now that I am no way a vegan BUT I was super intrigued by this little spot by Covent Garden. First of all, all you need to do is hashtag this place on Instagram to see how blogger, YouTuber and influencer friendly it is. Whilst sat in there a woman asked if we were vloggers and said that she had already had 3 in that morning. Just goes to show!
The food was delicious and quickly devoured from both myself and Gemma, however neither of us could finish…who would have thought a salad would be so filling?! I also tried some of their seasonal lemonade which is a MUST if you fancy a refreshing drink on a hot day. The one thing I noticed is that the food is extremely reasonably priced considering it’s location, aesthetically pleasing decor and portion sizes and it’s a place I shall definitely be returning too! All of their utensils, bowls, cups AND straws are 100% recyclable which is something I am totally for right now (I think we’ve all seen that heartbreaking turtle video circulating the internet).
If you want to see their menu in more depth or what the food looked like including the little spot itself, head on over to my YouTube channel to see what fun we had!
