I’m In London! – Olfactoria On the Road

I flew to London yesterday to attend the lovely Neil’s ( of The Black Narcissus) fabulous talk about vanilla for Perfume Lovers London.

It was a meeting of many great bloggers and readers and perfume lovers and our reporter at large and local London hero Tara will bring us a write-up of this fabulous evening next week.

I am staying for a few days all by my lonesome, meaning I am without husband and kids, but certainly not alone as I am meeting all my friends, attempting to eat my body weight in macarons, walking the city, taking in art and beauty at the museums, sniffing perfume and generally enjoying myself (hopefully all that without the ubiquitous English rain!).

Have a great weekend, I’ll see you Monday!

    I had a three day holiday alone last year and it was restorative. Museums (and shopping and meals) without children, every once in a while, are much-needed. I wish I could hear Neil’s talk. Have a wonderful time! Looking forward to the recap!

    It was great to see you, and I hope you enjoyed your solo? Saturday – and that Sunday’s early start (on Mother’s Day – ouch!) was not too brutal…;)

      I got up at 3.15!!! actual time, 4.15 summertime to go to Heathrow. Not ideal, but at least I was home before lunch.
      Saturday was great, fabulous weather!
      It was so great seeing you too, dear V! xx

  15. I was in London this past weekend! I’m sorry I didn’t know sooner, we might have been able to catch each other. Saturday was glorious, wasn’t it.

      Saturday was fantastic indeed, when I close my eyes I can still see myself sitting in Hyde Park enjoying the sun on my face.
      Sorry that we didn’t get to meet this time, Ali. 😦
