Shoreditch Arts, Food and Markets

Shoreditch, very well known for its hipster scenery and wow did I love it. I'd been longing to go for ages. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, whether it would live up to the hype and it did. As soon as you stepped out of the station, I was greeted with so much art
It made me so excited just to see all this creativity in the flesh. What made it so special was that it wasn't on an ordinary canvas but a huge wall. I wondered how people managed to do this, it opened my eyes to the artistic talents people have out there.


This was also my favourite amongst them all!


Isn't it brilliant?! Everything about it screamed individuality. What baffled me was the precision and how it was neatly done. Obviously, it must have required a lot of time and money (in terms of the material they used) But this wasn't the only place in Shoreditch that had all this art, it was spread out everywhere.

After trekking the high street, we stumbled across a market. There was a stall selling Virgin Pina Coladas and after we were given a sample (which was delicious) we couldn't help but purchase a full sized one in a cute pineapple!
Roaming round the market we found that there were multiple stalls selling an overwhelming variety of food - Vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Ethiopian, Italian.etc (but we couldn't take much pictures since most of the stalls had a 'no photos please' sign on them) We mainly observed and explored than tried them out because the prices of the food were quite expensive, but still so tempting



The market was so hectic, it was a bit of a relief to get out of there. Funnily enough that wasn't the only market, after we left we found that there were more... A Vintage Clothing Market. It sold all sorts of last season designer brands like the Burberry trench coats at an incredibly affordable price! Next time I come back, I'll definitely have my cash in hand. As you know, markets tend to sell non-mainstream items so you can imagine me in awe at all these new pieces!






Shoreditch was full of everything, as well as markets and good food there were people doing weird things everywhere. This guy below, was giving out haircuts through an unconventional and unique method. People were all dressed so differently. I've always been a big believer in peoples style reflecting their personality. The fact that people here were outrageously different was intriguing (in a good way of course)


More markets...



I wish I took more pictures, the place was honestly so beautiful. It's took you away from the normal every day London. I'm sure I'll be back there soon. I'd advise you all not to go during a weekend, unless you can handle a busy environment of course. 

Yours truly,
