While I am editing more than 700 pics from my Portuguese trip (you can have a preview on Instagram), here I am with a new photopost. Well, actually I should call it a photo-diary of an amazing day. Imagine to spend a day out in one of your favourite shopping streets, and imagine to get a treat, a treatment, a workshop or (drumrolls…) a goodie bag from almost every shop. A dream? Kind of. #RegentTweet is a marvellous event that celebrates Regent Street in London with bloggers from all over the world. A day of of shopping, treats, workshops and conferences.
I was one of the bloggers last year and I enjoyed it so much. This year – the 5th anniversary of the event – I possibly enjoyed it more!
Brasserie Zedel, home of cabaret show The Crazy Coqs and amazing restaurant was the ‘camp base’ of Regent Tweet.
Here I am with some of the lovely bloggers: A lady in London and Sunny in London, right before starting the shops tour. We had just came out of the Apple Store, where the director of the V&A had kick-started the day with an inspiring speech about fashion.
Then off we went for an amazing stroll around the mavellous shops. Here I am with my happy bunny face for a new pair of GAP jeans.
And here I am again, having a lovely masterclass of Cappuccino-making with latte artists from the new Illy Caffé store. Who knew it was so hard to make a heart out of frothed milk!
Penhaligon’s is a beautiful and stylish perfume boutique where everything looks and smells SO good.
While Laird Hats London was one of my favourite stops. Here I was invited to measure my head (I found out I am a size 55… or a british 6 and 3/4) and to try many amazing hat styles. My favourite one was the Weekender, and I was so happy to come back home with it 🙂
Liberty, in Great Marlborough St. is another one of my favorites. I love its beauty floor, where I discovered more about REN products (and I can’t wait to try my samples!) but the whole shop is so amazing. It is worth a visit even if you don’t have to buy anything.
Then a break was a delicious lunch at Brassierie Zedel.
Here I met Giuseppina DeCamillo, artist and designer and founder of PreserveYourInstinct. It is a creative platform now promoting an artistic project that took place in Otsuchi, a little Japanese town destroyed by the Tsunami. Giuseppina wanted to find out what’s left of creativity when you lose everything, and the results were amazing and moving.
Here I am with two of the dolls made by the people of the village with waste materials. Aren’t they beautiful? The project became an exhibition that, after Otsuchi and Tokyo will come to London soon.
And how to forget all the yummy food and drinks we were offered in the shops? Reiss spoiled us with chocolate and champagne, and I also loved the fresh fruity cocktails at Aquascutum. And the collections of those brands, oh how pretty they are!
Here I am KarlLagerfeld-ized at the flagship store.
I hope I gave you some good suggestion for your next shopping trip to Regent Street!
